Sometimes you have a craving for Vietnamese food, and remember seeing someone saying on Instagram that a joint in Joo Chiat is good. Your synapses fire off pleasantly, you arrange for someone to drive you there and then you have lovely Vietnamese noodles in a bowl in front of you.
Long Phung is a grubby place, and it shrugs off from caring because it knows patrons will come anyway. The food is great, reasonably priced and you are guaranteed a happy belly.
PS. It is on the end of Joo Chiat Road that’s further away from Katong mall (I don’t like calling it by its new name); it’s right next to the public car park. It’s pretty near to Fei Fei Wanton Mee and Kim Choo’s if you are into those.
