Just order the cheapest, plainest noodle dish on the menu! That’s what I intend to do next time. Why? Because the noodle here is so good, you don’t really need any extra topping. Seriously. And what do I mean by good? Springy, non-starchy and smooth. It’s a wonder how the repetitious compressing of the dough using a huge bamboo pole can produce such fantastic texture. And I respect the guy who’s commanding the whole compression mechanism by riding the pole between the groin. This must be the next most hazardous job for men after professional cycling! The strands were so fine, I could almost call it the capellini of all egg noodles. No hint of lye as well. The restaurant proclaims that they use omega-3 eggs, which means nothing to me because it’s not about how healthy the eggs are but how the noodle tastes. If salmon or any other omega-3 rich fish is used, then I'll be impressed. Having said that, the noodle was still very much tasty lah. Wish I could say the same about the braised ribs and trio cuts toppings though.Gotta love the restaurant's perky name too.
With trio of char siew, roasted belly and liver sausage that I could do without.
