Beef Pho @ Madam Saigon

Special Beef Noodle Soup - Sliced Beef, Brisket and Beef Balls ($10.90++)

Late lunch at Millenia Walk. We couldn't feel our hunger until food was before us. The morning at the City Hall left us emotionally drained.

Having been reading up on Vietnam and their heavy use of MSG seasoning on Pho, i was looking forward to tasting some local beef Pho, tweaked to suit the local palate. So Ric readily purchased their online deal at $7++.

The soup failed to rouse appetite. It was less flavorsome than our Hainanese beef soup; and the added MSG demotes it further. Fresh herbs and vegetables were left raw when submerged into the lukewarm soup. We like their beef balls best; bouncy and well-textured.

We just took in everything to fill the void in the stomach. Emotional emptiness in our heart reminds.
