Song Que is one of the busiest Vietnamese canteens in the ’Ditch. Families & fashionistas overlook the dated decor & harsh lighting, concentrating instead on the house special pho packed
with beef in various permutations – rare-sliced steak & well-done flank, or flank & tendon, for example. The menu is long (amounting to more than 170 dishes), yet low on thrills that can’t
be found elsewhere on Kingsland Road. Give a wide berth to the dull-seeming Chinese dishes in favour of more vibrant green papaya salad, shredded pork & herbs in rice-paper wrappers, beef in
betel leaf, or the noodle soups. As for the tipple of choice, a chilled Halida or Hue beer beats the flasks of Mateus Rosé any day. What Song Que lacks in finesse, it at least compensates for with
the bill. A filling bowlful of pho will only set you back £7.70.
I’ve had Vietnamese food before but I’ve never tried Pho. Pho is a Beef Noodle Soup and now that I’ve discovered it at Song Que, - a Vietnamese Restaurant in Hoxton on Kingsland road -, I can’t get enough of it.At Song Que, they specialize in it - serving big steaming bowls of noodles simmering in a fragrant beefy broth flavoured with lemongrass, ginger and lime and full of aromatic herbs like coriander and basil. They have tons of different variations though I’ve only tried pho with well done flank steak and slices of rare beef. I haven’t been brave enough to try it with tripe or tendons!..

I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Vietnamese food at Song Que Cafe in shoreditch. I had my mind set on coming to Kingsland road as I'd seen he numerous Vietnamese restaurants lining the pavement many times before. With these series I finally had to go and try one.
