Lang Nuong Vietnam @ Jalan Besar – The First Vietnamese BBQ Is Here in Singapore!
July 14, 2015
There is a growing number of Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore. As the buzz increased, there are more new and interesting food concepts coming up. One of them is Vietnamese BBQ. Làng Nuöng Việt Nam is the first traditional Vietnamese BBQ restaurant located along Jalan Besar. You get to experience first-hand the famous Vietnamese “street-food” charcoal-barbequed gourmet meat that can only be found in Vietnam.
Vietnamese food is a seductive food genre. It tends to be less spicy, lighter, fragrant and fresh. I haven’t been to Vietnam, but the ambiance here does look like a restaurant in Vietnam. The clay stoves, cutlery, signage and even all the fans are all imported from Vietnam to bring out the culture and feel. A mixture of Vietnamese popular and old songs will be played too.
Barbeque is by old-fashioned clay stoves from Vietnam which is slowly diminishing over time. Here, the meat is marinated in a range of homemade Vietnamese sauces. It’s different from Thai BBQ, as this marination is much more intense for Vietnamese BBQ. Grilled over charcoal, you can smell it from a block away.
The real magic happens when you cook the meat on the charcoal grill at your table. It’s the smoky hiss of charcoal and the tantalising aroma of slowly barbecuing prawns and chicken on the grill, giving passersby a bird’s eye view of all the action. We ordered a Premium Mixed Platter ($39.90 for 2-4 pax / $69.90 for 4-6pax) which has a combination of pork, chicken and seafood, accompanied by a freshly prepared set of vegetables. They also have Vietnamese Hot Pot ($15.90 for 1 pax / $35.90 for 2-3 pax).
All the special dipping sauce and ingredients for the secret marination are imported from Vietnam. Dunk the grilled meat into the chilli sauce and follow up with mouthfuls of the accompanying rice. If you close your eyes, you do feel like you have travelled to Vietnam.
