NamNam Noodle Bar was founded by Director and Owner Chef Nam through his love for cooking and exceptional culinary skills.
Born in Vietnam, Nam fled to Denmark with his family in 1979 when Vietnam fell to the communists. Though he had only spent 7 years of his childhood in Saigon, his parents took every effort to ensure that he kept to his Vietnamese traditions and culture.
Instilled with Vietnamese pride, Nam embarked on a culinary expedition around the world. He has worked in various award-winning restaurants and hotels – such as the one Michelin star Le Canard Oslo and the prestigious Sukhothai Bangkok, where he took the reins as Executive Chef.
Despite his travels and exposure to various cuisines, Nam returned to his roots and opened NamNam Noodle Bar. The casual quick-service noodle bar took 5 years of careful planning and strategizing before making its maiden debut in the bustling Raffles City Shopping Centre, conveniently located in the heart of Singapore, on 15 October 2012. Based on old-world recipes with a modern twist, the robustly flavoured dishes transport diners to the vibrant streets of Vietnam.
