London Day 9: Dinner at Song Que


For the last dinner in London, Ben and I went for Vietnamese food. We had actually attempted to go for Vietnamese food on Kingsland earlier but we were lost due to getting down on the wrong subway station.

This time, after a better research, we found out that we were able to walk from our hotel to Kingsland where many Vietnamese restaurants are located. It is just a 25 minutes walk. Silly us on our first attempt.

We decided to have dinner at Song Que Vietnamese Restaurant as it is a popular one.

Song Que was full house when we arrived. And there was a line waiting for tables. Luckily we were not too far back in the line.  The wait was at least 20 minutes.

The table setting are very tight.

Song Que served complementary prawn chips after we placed our order. A good start.

Their chopstick cover even has instructions on how to use chopstick.

The menu is big but does not feel very authentic. We ordered a sampler appetizer plate to try. It has deep fried squid, deep fried rice paper spring roll, deep fried spare ribs, deep fried shredded seaweed, pickled carrots and daikon and I forgot what were the items right in the center.

We really like the deep fried shredded seaweed.

The fixings for the beef noodles.

It was a good meal. The bill came to 34 pounds.
