Thick soup, delicious noodles, oysters, intestines and big chunks of pork, topped with corriander and doused with some chilli sauce. What’s not to love?
So you’re talking as low as $30 for a small bowl of these vermicelli noodles, but if you’re wanting a bowl to include oysters, pork and some offal, then you’re looking at $55 for a small bowl and $70 for a big bowl. I’d highly recommend you to order the last of the 2 options.
What I ordered:
Mixed bowl of vermicelli noodles with oysters, pork and offal

Oysters – great
Offal – an aquired taste, but some chewy goodness
Pork – unusual addition, but delightful
Overall – Excellent value, filling lunch
They even teach you what toppings to add in, and in what amounts, to make the noodles taste even better. For the recommended dose, go for:
1 dash of vinegar
1 dash of garlic paste
2 dashes of chilli oil
However, I went for 2 dashes of vinegar and 1 of the chilli oil and I felt that this balance was more suitable than what they suggested (I tried both, don’t worry, I was happy to nail 2 bowls).
I was surprised at how big the oysters were. They were juicy
and meaty – everything you want from an oyster
