It is always exciting walking along Kingsland Road, the street famous for its limitless choices of Vietnamese food. Even though I have not tried all of them yet, I have been to quite a few and have established some selected favourites. Song Que is one of them. It is bright and open, with quite an extensive menu I sometimes wonder how they do it. If you are looking for cheap, no-fuss and authentic Vietnamese food, this will be the one.
With its bright green sign at the corner of Kingsland road and Cremer Street, it is impossible to miss. Plus, it is only about a minute walk away from Hoxton station.
Grilled beef wrapped in betel leaf
It gets a little messy while eating but this isn't stopping me from ordering this ever so often. It is the process of wrapping the grilled beef in lettuce and betel leaf then dip into the sauce that I really enjoy.
Known for their excellent pho, do try their beef pho. In this photo, it is stewed beef noodle soup. The beef has been cooked for so long, it falls apart easily and the soup is packed full of flavour. Just delicious!
Hot and spicy prawn noodle soup is different from the typical beef pho. If you prefer seafood to beef, this will be a good option. It actually reminds me of the less intense version of Malaysian prawn noodle soup which I love.
