Hey mamas! Juggling errands and feeling like you need a break? Same here! But listen up, I found this amazing Vietnamese restaurant called Năm Năm Tiêm Pho 20 that totally turned our chaotic day around. Tucked away in New Manila (at 53 14th St, Quezon City), it’s a hidden gem that deserves to be on every foodie mama’s radar!

Escape the Hustle and Bustle

The second you walk through the door at Năm Năm Tiêm Pho 20, the city noise melts away. It’s a small nook with a very homey, welcoming azotea when you go inside. Entering the premise, you’d be greeted by a bare unpainted wall with an assortment of Vietnamese related art. It’s not fancy, but that’s exactly what makes it so charming. Think spartan seating, clean tables, and a relaxed atmosphere – a perfect escape for a mommy-and-me lunch break or a casual dinner with girlfriends where you can actually hear yourselves chat.

Authentic Vietnamese Delights

The menu might not be huge, but that just means they focus on perfecting a few key dishes. No overwhelm here, mamas! We went for the classic Vietnamese noodle soup, pho, and it was an absolute revelation. The rich, aromatic broth was a revelation -even with all the heat before we walked in, the noodles were cooked to a perfect al dente, and the fresh herbs and spices added an explosion of flavor. It’s clear they use high-quality ingredients, making this pho something truly special. Also had some Cha Gio -a sort of Lumpia but with Vietnamese flair and an amazing sauce! These rolls are wrapped in rice paper and deep-fried, resulting in a crispy outer layer.

My ever loyal foodie partner also indulged in the Bun Bo Hue, which features a spicy broth enriched with beef and pork, perfectly complementing the thick, round rice noodles. I was a bit envious so I stole a few bites. (and slurp) The soup was beautifully garnished with fresh herbs and vegetables, adding a refreshing crunch and vibrant flavors to each spoonful. The lemongrass and chili oil gave it a distinctive kick -yummy!
