Swearing Noodle

Swear noodle

This is a quite well known noodle shop in Saigon, not because of the noodles, but rather because of the owner. The regulars, including my sister, said that the lady owner swears at her staff all the time and is a bit cold to the customers.

Swear noodle

She sells a variety of different kinds of noodles (vermicelli and pho) with chicken and chicken's organs. If you ever go to this place, ask her to leave out the MSG. Because she’s from Hanoi, she adds it without thinking. The soup's good in the mornings and they are open at night, too. Another member of the family takes over to sell sticky rice, noodles and other chicken dishes.

She's like the Soup Nazi on the old TV show "Seinfeld". He ran a lunch counter that sold soup was real mean to people!

Hey Junebee,

Hahaha..I immediately thought of the same thing, the soup Nazi in Seinfeld..."no soup for you!!!". I still watch all of its rerun.

Godknows, is her food all worth it? I'm pretty sure there are good joints in SG to enjoy chicken noodle soup and not having to listen to the owner's potty mouth.

Her soup is worth it.

Yes, heather, that is a fabulous site.

This place have caught many students from Tran Dai Nghia highschool and their parents sitting for breakfast. Nice spot to spend few time of the early morning, then you can take a cup of Cappucinno by just walking some stpes to Metropolitan building near there.
