After bringing in Tsuta, the world’s first one Michelin-starred ramen eatery, to Singapore and expanding the chain to 7 stores in 4 countries all under 2 years, businessman Brian Chua is hungry for more. Through Gourmet Food Holdings, an investment company which Brian founded, he is investing into Mrs Pho with the hopes of bringing the brand international.
The authentically humble pho restaurant operates on the tribute to its founder Hoang’s mother, grandmother and aunts, the women who selflessly feed their family out of love and whom he crowns as the best cooks. Mrs Pho serves up homemade communal style Vietnamese classics derived from Hoang’s family recipes, so they taste just like how his mother used to make them. All ingredients in their making are proudly sourced from Vietnam as well.
Growing up as a refugee in Australia, food was the string home to Hoang’s roots, the same one which he now hopes to share with the world through Mrs Pho. That is why everything continues to be made in-house, from the broth and sauces to its range of unique house-made drinks.
Their partnership has birthed the latest Mrs Pho outlet in VivoCity, Singapore’s largest retail and lifestyle destination. This outpost marks the first Mrs Pho in a shopping mall, the first of many more which Gourmet Food Holdings has set its sights on growing worldwide.
Two very special dishes were unveiled at the launch – an exclusive creation by the original Mrs Pho, as Hoang’s own mother is affectionately known, who graced the event with her presence for the opening. Mamma’s Chicken Ham are irresistible slices of minced chicken marinated with spices, steamed in in banana leaf and then fried for extra flavour. A traditional snack in Vietnam, its flavours explode with each bite especially when had with its special sweet and spicy dipping sauce, perfect to go with beer. They are also the perfect addition to the Moc Noodle Soup, a hearty clear noodle broth, sweetened with slices of fresh onion.
The rest of the meny features flavours of Hoang’s childhood with appetisers like the Mrs Pho Cockles that presents succulent cockles tossed in fragrant garlic and pork lard, as well as the Fresh Star Fruit and Beef Salad, where tender slices of beef is served with fresh star fruit for a zesty balance. The Grilled Lemongrass Beef Sticks is also a good contender with chunky beef marinated in lemongrass essence for a touch of freshness.
The must-order at Mrs Pho is the Special Beef Combo Pho, a warm, hearty bowl of silky flat rice noodles in a rich beef soup, accompanied generously by lean cuts of beef, beef balls, tripe and more. Crunchy beansprouts, mint leaves, sliced chilli and onion make it a meal that’s as balanced as it is heartwarming. The Hue Special Beef Noodle Soup also shines the spotlight on beef while the Mrs Pho Dry Noodle Combo allows you to savour the delicateness of the restaurant’s house-made noodles.
Wash it all down with house specialty drinks like refreshing Coconut Smoothie, Yoghurt Cooler and a popular Vietnamese favourite, the Saigon Salty Lemonade. For a sweet end, the Cream Caramel will seal things with a syrupy sweet kiss while the Avocado Smoothie wraps things up on a creamy note. As an option, you can also have the traditional Vietnamese drip coffee as an add-on to the smoothie for an extra buzz.
In Mrs Pho, Brian found authenticity and character of food served from the heart, and has chosen to invest and help expand the chain to international waters. Likewise, Hoang appreciates Chua’s sincere and fearless approach in taking a small ramen shop and bringing it to international success while maintaining its core qualities and hopes to see the same for Mrs. Pho.
This new outlet takes on a quirkier vibe true to Vietnam’s booming street art scene back home, featuring a graffiti wall by an upcoming Vietnamese artist for an interactive element. The dining area reflects your typical Vietnamese household with lanterns and bamboo beads. All furniture and fixtures are flown in from Vietnam, too, for a true feel of home.
A visit to Mrs Pho promises to transport diners to Hoang’s home and childhood, through the food, ambience and restaurant spirit.
