Yen Linh is an Asian eatery located inside the same block of shops just across from my favourite beef noodle soup place Pho 75. The place is furnished with ugly and outdated furniture just like many other Asian restaurants but as they say if it’s not broken don’t fix it.
This was my first time here as I always go to Pho 75 when I am in the area but on this occasion I did not feel like eating beef noodle soup.
Cold soy bean drink. My favourite Asian beverage. It really quenches the thirst and is not overly sweet like some other drinks.
Combination egg noodle soup. Fresh thin egg noodles with a combination of thinly sliced pork, prawns, squid, fish cake, quail eggs and garnished with spring onions and chives. The soup was amazingly rich, full bodied and full of flavour. You could really tell that the stock had been simmered for a long time absorbing all the flavours making it into a beautiful soup. The meat was soft and the seafood was tender. The quail eggs were little bursts of creaminess in the mouth.
Yen Linh is a great suburban Asian eatery serving a variety of traditional Vietnamese dishes. The food is so cheap and the service is extremely fast. My food came out within minutes after I ordered. The perfect place for a quick and delicious meal.
They also have another restaurant located in Chinatown for those that work in or around the CBD.
