After introducing authentic Vietnamese flavours with its pho and authentic street food dishes, Mrs Pho delves deeper into Vietnamese cuisine with a new concept – Mrs Pho House – that serves up traditional charcoal hotpot and Vietnamese festive delicacies in an interior that is reflection of a Vietnamese home. The best of Vietnamese hospitality is presented over communal family-sharing style dishes and hotpot where the freshest meats, seafoods and vegetables are cooked over charcoal fire.
Mrs Pho House brings to the table broths, ingredients and side dishes prepared to true Vietnamese heirloom recipes by a third-generation female Chef Linh from Vietnam.
With influences from Chinese and French cuisine, Vietnamese food differs with crisper flavours but with just as diverse layers. Extending on what Mrs Pho Kitchen has to offer, Mrs Pho House intends to bring the full depth of Vietnamese cuisine to diners from appetisers and mains to dessert.
“All the dishes I’ve created are drawn from my memories of my childhood,” shares Chef Linh. “The Lemongrass Chicken is made from the same recipe as my mother used and the Butter Quail always makes me laugh when I think of all the quails I have stolen from my mother as she was preparing them. I also have creations of my own that I would like to share, like the Bun Cha that I ate a lot of in my younger trainee days and has perfected over the years.”
Trained in France at Michelin restaurants, Le Grand Vefour and Le Pre Catelan, Chef Linh is proud to be returning to her roots and serving up traditional Vietnamese dishes from her childhood, including a signature Crab Bisque Soup as sold by her own mother’s famed crab noodle soup street stall in Saigon.
Chef Linh comes from a long lineage of chefs, each having spent time in the mecca of cuisine – France. Her grandmother was trained in Ferrandi in 1920 and was among the first to incorporate French techniques in Vietnamese cooking. Fate didn’t smile on her time in France, which she had to cut short and return to Vietnam, but she successfully inspired her granddaughter to also pursue her culinary craft in Ferrandi.
Making it to France was not an easy journey, especially monetarily. To save enough money, Chef Linh worked for six years in Singapore, tiding herself over with foods she knows best – Vietnamese cuisine.
After over 2 years in France, Chef Linh returned to Singapore, a natural decision motivated by her love for the country. Her hopes of bringing authentic Vietnamese dishes are materialised with Mrs Pho House, a hotpot and Vietnamese specialty concept restaurant that replicates the dining ambience of a Vietnamese home. On the menu, she has put a medley of festive dishes usually only enjoyed during special occasions in Vietnam.

With the fragrant aroma of Sichuan peppercorns and chilies beckoning, get ready to welcome new hotpot restaurant chain Spice World Hot Pot from China making its inaugural presence in Singapore with a 200-seater, 6,000 sqft duo-design dining space at Clarke Quay that serves up an array of aromatic spicy and non-spicy soup broths with exquisitely plated, high-quality and fresh ingredients.
Spice World Hot Pot, founded in 2003 is one of China’s top ten global hotpot brands that prides itself in the meticulous preparation of its soup broths and accompaniments. No artificial flavouring, MSG or flavor enhancers are used. Instead, soup bases are first brewed in Sichuan China using the most carefully sourced deep forest peppercorns from Hongya farmlands, chilies from the mountainous origins of Guizhou and Sichuan before being air-flown to Singapore where it goes through a secondary preparation. All soup bases including the much loved Sichuan mala broth are brewed for at least four to six hours.
Diners can choose from 7 different soup bases – mala, which comes in three varying degrees of spiciness (mild, medium, hot), pork belly and chicken, three-delicacy (pork, chicken, duck), wild mushroom, tomato, tom-yam, and curry.
At Spice World, accompanying ingredients such as beef, pork and lamb are freshly sourced, painstakingly prepared and hand-sliced as opposed to frozen and machined cut. Similarly, all seafood arrives at Spice World fresh, not frozen. A source of great pride, this method of serving fresh ingredients is Spice World’s hallmark of distinction.
From the freshest Australian M8 Wagyu beef, delicately draped to form a dress over a doll, to the Australian mutton slices served on a meter long plank, to the good-humouredly named Prime Minister’s Pork Balls (former U.K Prime Minister David Cameron’s favourite dish) made from pork belly and parsley, to the delicately sliced rumen tripe from the first section of a cow’s stomach that contains the grass it consumes; all meats are air-flown to ensure that freshness and quality are never compromised. For seafood lovers, freshly prepared shrimp paste made from 100% shrimp meat and tobiko are a perennial favourite amongst diners along with the seafood platter.
To add a bit of fun to the dining experience, diners can choose to have a teddy bear or Hello Kitty shaped out of mala soup and beef oil added to the hotpot and watch it slowly melt into the broth (limited to only 8 per day!). This fun element has been and still is a big hit with Spice World patrons around the world. Diners can also have a meal with Nicholas the Bear, a life-sized teddy bear stuffed toy mascot, if he is not too busy posing for pictures.
