COCKLES, PHO FUN
In the row of shophouses along Beach Road opposite The Concourse is a new Vietnamese eatery called Mrs Pho.
Expect the usual Vietnamese staples of spring rolls, both fried and fresh, and chicken and beef pho. It also serves Bun Thit Nuong, or rice vermicelli with pork chop and spring rolls, and Hu Tieu Bo Kho, which is stewed beef noodles.
Highlights here include the stir-fried cockles ($6.50), tossed in garlic, chilli and plenty of lard. The cockles are full, plump and juicy. Dip them, along with a cube of lard, into the fiery chilli paste for a hit of spicy pleasure.
