There are actually 2 styles of Vietnamese pho, the northern Hanoi style, and the southern Saigon style. The latter is apparently more commonly found in Singapore, which leaves shops like Super Ngon in the minority. The difference offered by the Hanoi style boils down to the use of lesser herbs and more focus on the broth.
The shop itself was pretty spartan and the menu has been kept really simple compared to other chic Vietnamese concepts. This was apparently as close as it gets to a no-frills Vietnamese restaurant like the ones in Vietnam itself. The Eatvestigator had a go at the regular beef pho set (SGD12). The broth was pretty comforting and beef slices were tender. Chives and scallions were in abundance.
If beef and soup is not to your liking, we also spotted an off menu item called Dried Chicken Noodles, which came with generous amount of bean sprouts. It was savoury and also finished easily along with the spring rolls.
If you aren’t interested in fancy menus and decor, then this place ticks the boxes. At risk of long queues and little seating spaces, the Eatvestigator would not specially make a trip down for a meal unless one was coincidentally in the vicinity. This place makes a good backup location in case Eat 3 Bowls is crowded.
