Some times back when Que was still at the old location in Toa Payoh, we had one regular who only ordered chicken Pho and fresh spring roll set. He ate it day in day out despite us asking him if he wanna try something else reassured him they are pretty good as well. One day, he came and we were determined he should/had to try other dish (LOL!), and if he wanted we could give him the soup version (some customers prefer soup!!). He finally sheepishly replied to our horrid, “Your famous noodle has no taste. I tried before on the first time I came here”. We made him order the grilled pork noodle, then asked to show us how he ate. It turned out our dear regular didn’t use the fish sauce provided! New customers who never had Vietnamese food before would think the small bowl of fish sauce is only for dipping. Yep, despite all the photos we posted.
Once in a while we would encounter similar incident, therefore, at Que, staffs are informed to remind the customers who we don’t recognize to pour the fish sauce into the noodle and mix it up.
Fast forward, at almost 3 years, (no) thanks to Covid, we finally have time to sit down and do a proper video guide how to eat the famous Bún (Thịt Nướng) Chả (Giò) Quê. Now, let’s see the recommended way to enjoy a Bún Chả Quê as demonstrated by our very charming Kyri.
