Newest addition to Chinatown, Huong Que Quan Vietnamese Cuisine, opens with prices starting from $4.50
There have been quite a number of closures at Chinatown Complex Market and Food Centre. Hawker legends have been opting to close their stalls for multiple reasons, but that gives room for new openings. Huong Que Quan Vietnamese Cuisine is one of them, as it is new to the Chinatown neighbourhood.
Instead of lamenting the recent closing of Zhao Ji Claypot Rice at the same hawker centre, Huong Que Quan Vietnamese Cuisine acts as a fresh inclusion to the green zone of Chinatown Complex Market and Food Centre.
However, they’re not a new face to the F&B scene. They were previously at Tanglin Halt Food Centre, up until Tanglin Halt was closed for demolishment. They have been off the radar since Oct 2021, till their recent movement. If you’ve visited their previous stall, their exterior doesn’t look entirely different from before, so it’s easy to make the connection.
They officially opened on 16 Mar 2023, announcing their reopening with a promotion of free dessert for everyone who visits the store from 16 to 31 Mar 2023.
Huong Que Quan Vietnamese Cuisine has a number of offerings that don’t differ that drastically from their previous stall. You’ll see the typical Vietnamese spread of banh mi, Vietnamese spring rolls, bun cha, bun thit and pho.
They feature Bun Thit Nuong and Chao Gio (S$7), which I presume should be a crowd favourite considering how the Vietnamese marinate their meats. A bowl includes a fried spring roll and grilled pork slices on top of warm bee hoon. This is accompanied by a special fish sauce, which is utilised as a dipping sauce.
There isn’t much that can go wrong with both variations of bun cha and bun thit, which might get you asking— what’s the difference between the two? Bun cha separates the sauce and noodles, while bun thit typically drizzles the sweet-tangy sauce on top of the grilled meats.
If you’re thinking of having something lighter for lunch or dinner, you can never go wrong with the choice of banh mi. At Huong Que Quan Vietnamese Cuisine, you can choose between flavours such as Baguette with pork ham (S$6), Sardine (S$6), Eggs (S$4.50) and Steamed bun with minced pork (S$7).
With prices starting from S$4.50 for Vietnamese food, I think that’s a solid catch.
