New store at Old Airport Road Food Center

My favourite Old Airport Road food center has just opened a new Vietnamese-food store, located at #01-143, at the north-east corner. It is name “Quan 5” i.e. District 5. I think it must have been named after District 5 in Ho Chi Minh City, which offers a great variety of good foods (thinking about that makes my stomach grumble… I miss vietnamese food!). Anyway, I ordered a bowl of Bun Cha Gio – Spring Roll Dry Vermicelli for $4.5 to try. Here it is:


Ta-da!!! When I was carrying my tray to the table, some aunties saw my bowl and were like “ooh that looks interesting. Where is the store?”. I must admit I was surprised by the quality. The spring-rolls were fried on the spot, so they were hot and crunchy, yet not oily. Seasoning of the stuffed-meat was also just right, when I dipped it in the fish sauce – wow yummy!!! The vermicelli and veggie portion was generous, but not very outstanding. Overall, I rate it the best Spring Roll Dry Vermicelli that I have tried in Singapore, based on the price and the spring roll quality (Long Phung, Mrs Pho or Nam Nam each has its own specialty, but their spring-rolls are not fantastic).

The store also offers:

  • Fresh prawn spring-roll
  • Mango salad
  • Beef noodle soup – Pho bo (many types)

I will come back and try other dishes in the near future. Are you a fan of Vietnamese food as well? Maybe I will review about places to eat Vietnamese food in Singapore in another post.

Other dishes that we tried in Old Airport Food center:


The famous Lao Fu Zi Fried Kway Teow #01-12. In my opnion, it was a bit oily and less tasty than the Lucky Char Kway Teow opposite.


Chuan Kee Satay #01-85 – it took half an hour to get this. Hmm.

My husband and I were super full after the inexpensive meal, so we slowly strolled back to our house. Happiness is just simple as that.
