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.

World-renowned perfume house, diptyque, will be opening their stand-alone store in Singapore soon at Ngee Ann City.
The diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson. They were joined by the third in 1961 and opened a shop to display their designs. Yves became the administrator and consultant; Desmond and Christiane were the artistic soul. Bit by bit, with finely honed taste, the trio transformed the site into a one-of-a-kind setting, a kind of stylish bazaar where one found surprising articles unmatched in Paris, mined and conveyed home by the trio over the course of their travels.
Since 1961, diptyque's passion for creativity and design has made it a world-renowned perfume house, purveyor of a comprehensive line of home fragrance (including our iconic candles), personal fragrance & body care.
