Vietnamese Hawkers Sell Yummy, Hard-To-Find Crab Noodle Soup From $17

While there’s no lack of good pho joints in Singapore, it’s far more challenging to find other types of Vietnamese noodles here. One example is bánh canh cua ( crab noodle soup), a popular dish found in Ho Chi Minh City.

Opened in early December, an unassuming kopitiam stall in Geylang simply named Crab Noodles marks 31-year-old Nina Nguyen’s alternative Vietnamese food offering to the pho-dominated noodle scene. “It’s easy to find pho here, but a lot of my [Vietnamese] friends and myself miss the other Vietnamese food. Bánh canh cua is really famous in Ho Chi Minh City. I was thinking, why is nobody selling it in Singapore?” Based on 8days.sg’s research, the dish can only be found at a handful of restaurants here, including Moc Quan and Mrs Pho.
