I hear ya, another bloody asian food review from Nina Gnaws. I just can’t help myself, every time I say to myself, lets try something different, I just get sucked into that warm, spicy, asian deliciousness. Anyway, this one is definitely one to take note of, Song Que was recommended to me around 3 years ago just before our trip toVietnam, long before I even knew the ‘Pho Mile’ in Dalston existed. And I just keep going back, it has to be the best Vietnamese in London. A word of warning its not the prettiest of restaurants, but thats also why Song Que advocates love it, with its roman lettuce green walls and sparkly black tiled toilets this place is the epitome of a Vietnamese family run restaurant in the heart of buzzy London. The food is on a par with Vietnames street food, the summer rolls so fresh and stuffed full of flavour. If you love Pho, you’ll know that to get it right its all judged on that first sip of the liquid, and Song Que know how to make the perfect light flavoursome Pho.
If you want to try something new, the pork Bun Cha ticks the box of ‘something a little naughtier’, slightly heavier dish including deep fried pork chunks with a vermiccilli noodle base. For our 4th visit to Song Que, it never disappoints, during the day you can usually walk straight in, there’s sometimes the occasional queue. Staff are as you’d expect, not much of a ‘service’ going for them but it adds to the authenticity and casual dining experience.
