Nghi Ngan Quan, Ferryden Park

Quick brunch date with my ma early on a Sunday morning. We ventured down West to Ferryden Park to a very popular Vietnamese haunt – Nghi Ngan Quan. Snagging a table was easy considering that it was about 9:30am in the morning but I heard that it can get pretty packed out so to ensure yourselves a seat, book ahead! :D

Bún bò huế (small), spicy beef noodle soup; $9.00
Plates of fresh herbs and salads
Hu tiêu mì thập cẩm (small), special combination rice/egg dry noodles; $9.00

Ma orders a small bowl of bun bo hue which she hastily digs in, and she said she wasn’t hungry! Hehe! I opt for something more ‘special’ and go for the hu tieu mi thap cam. A mix of dry rice and egg noodles with meat pieces, seafood, veggies, spring onions, fried onions, fresh herbs and a whole lotta sauce (at the bottom of the bowl). The trick is to mix it toss it so every morsel of food is coated liberally before digging in! Delicious, lots of fresh sweet flavours and crunch! There is also a small bowl of soup that I slurp every now and then as a palate cleanser – which came in handy as I found the sauce to be on the super sweet side.

Out for dinner and stuck on a place to go? Why don’t you head down west to Nghi Ngan Quan? The menu list is huge, the food is super cheap, fresh and tasty; there are a variety of tropical fruit smoothies that you’ve got to try (Jackfruit smoothie *drools*) and service is friendly and accommodating. This authentic Vietnamese family owned restaurant won’t disappoint!

    You ordered my fav dish!! Does “mi thap cam” mean the dry version of these noodles?

      Woo! :P

      Mi thap cam – direct translation means ‘special combination egg noodles’.. it doesn’t specify whether it’s dry or has a soup base.

      If you’re after dry combination egg noodles.. add ‘kho’ which means ‘dry’ – so it’ll be ‘mi kho thap cam’ :D

      and for the soup one, add ‘nuoc’ which means ‘wet’ – ‘mi nuoc thap cam’ :P

      Happy eating K! I’m heading to Syd for some much needed korean food! Chyeahhh~
