No, I was not in the mood of rolling my own spring roll. I had mistakenly ordered it but it turned out to be quite an experience as I had never tried rolling a Vietnamese roll myself. It felt like a cross between an art and craft lesson and dinner. Would I order it again? Probably not, only because I think they would do a much better job of rolling it while I simply prefer to just eat it.
I ordered the one with beef. To roll it successfully, one had to add just enough water onto the rice paper. It turned out to be quite a good experience. I was pretty good at it by the time it was the fourth piece.
I would probably settle for something easier to eat next time like the Beef Soup noodles which is a standard in Vietnamese and Thai restaurants.

Staff from the restaurant was handing out flyers of the restaurant and we decided we would give it a try. My friend was recovering from a stomach bug and the noodles sounded good so off we went.
This place looked rather new and it also seemed to be competing against the other Vietnamese and Thai restaurants in the area. With three outlets in Singapore so far, it will be interesting to see how well they do.
Their mustard lettuce wrap rolls were new and we tried the ones with beef in them. I love rolls and I especially like that they are light, with only the sweet and sour sauce to flavour the rolls. The mustard in the rolls provided a nice extra bite. I loved the edible vege ties as well.

The extra bean spouts, mint and chilli that came with the beef noodles I ordered.
Pho Beef noodles Soup.
A completely healthy meal that was just right. As its name implies, this is one place to come to, to wrap and roll your own rolls, which we did not get to try this time. This is a franchise, with three outlets in Singapore presently.
