I have been a heavy Subway-customer for years now and this time I wanted to try something new in Singapore. I have been looking for an alternative to Subway since the menu in most countries is already too familiar to me.
This review has nothing to do with NamNam Noodle Bar (NNNB) noodles or anything else than their filled sandwiches.
I had a choice of six different ingredients for the bread and only one bread type (unlike Subway where you can choose between tens of ingredients and many bread types). Pricing was quite about the same. I ended up ordering a Chili Lemongrass Chicken, Egg Omelette, Chicken Floss sandwich.
I was a bit disappointed about the bread itself since I feel that bread in Asia is almost always inferior to the bread you can get from Europe. With the ingredients it was a completely different story…
…because I really enjoyed what I tasted. The fillings were of a good quality (fresh and tasty) and the taste was genuinely Vietnamese and that was what I wanted, so I can recommend this one.
It would be nice to have this kind of concept in Europe (currently the restaurant chain only runs restaurants in SG, Indonesia and Philippines). For a fast food and an almost-healthy Suway replacement NNNB is a good choice. Once again, a definite TRY but don’t wait too much for the bread itself.
