I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Taking the place of Baria Restaurant, Pho Chu Map continues the trend of offering delicious Vietnamese cuisine. It already proved to be quite popular with the locals, with a crowd of a decent size present when we visited.

A staple at any Vietnamese restaurant, their Pho Tai had tender slices of beef and the broth had the degree of spiced flavour we expected. The rice noodles were cooked al dente and slices of red onion added a bit of crunch. In addition to the usual Asian herbs and chilli, this dish also came with pickled onions.

We were delighted by the generous size of the pork chop in the Com Suon (Pork Chops with Rice). The chop was juicy with a lovely crisp coating. Accompanying the dish were pickled vegetables and a bowl of soup. Those that desire to add a bit of flavour can dip the pork chops in the Nuoc Cham sauce provided before eating it.

Among the selection of dry vermicelli noodle dishes known as Bun Bowls. The lemongrass beef in their Bun Bo Xao was cooked just right with a distinct lemongrass flavour. Pickled carrots added a tangy element to the dish. This was balanced out by the fresh herbs and shredded salad vegetables. A sprinkling of crushed peanuts added a crunchy element to the dish. To best enjoy the dish, pour the Nuoc Cham sauce over the ingredients and mix everything thoroughly.

The restaurant retains the casual feel from its predecessor, with the carpark in front providing convenient off-street parking. Its location makes it convenient for place locals living around the area to enjoy delicious Vietnamese cuisine.
