I’ve been a huge fan of Vietnamese cuisine since I came across a hole in the wall restaurant when I was a freshman in high school. Singh’s Vietnamese, a local food truck located off 1604, has been on my list of places to try for a while now. Since its opening in December 2012, Singh’s has been putting a little Texas twist on Vietnamese classics.
Three main dishes make up Singh’s menu – banh mi sandwiches, fried rice and noodle bowls. Once you choose your foundation, you have the choice of either grilled pork, grilled chicken, 10-hour brisket (that’s what’s up), pulled pork, seasonal veggies, or shrimp. After a quick sniff of the decadent aroma in the air, I knew I was going to order everything.
First, a banh mi with grilled pork followed by a noodle bowl with grilled chicken and fried rice with brisket. Hands down, the fried rice topped with the 10 hour brisket was my favorite dish. You didn’t need more than a nudge from your fork before the meat was melting onto the fried rice.
