Yikes! This post is looong due. It was one of those weekends when I had an hankering for noodles. I recalled that the night before, a friend told us about this restaurant that serves fresh handmade noodles. Intrigued as we were, we decided to pop our heads in there.
This place is famous for its fresh made on the premises noodles. Situated along William Street-where there are many Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants, the name itself stands out.
Condiments. As we waited patiently for our food, we noticed the writings on the wall. The history of noodles was printed on banners bilingually.
Here comes our order. Dumplings noodles soup. The dumplings were good and they were generous with meat and prawns. The noodles was definitely a winner. The texture was fantastic, it was springy but didn't taste like cardboard. I'm disappointed by the soup however. It was tasteless. More like boiled water with veges and salt. Well, at least we know they didn't pour msg in.
Now, this got our attention. Xo seafood noodles. SOoooo goooodddd.. Soooo addictive. The noodles soaked up the goodness of the XO gravy. They were quite generous with seafood as well. Well, since we are on the topic of generosity, the noodles were quite oily as well! Perhaps that was where all the flavours were. LOL
Conclusion: The portion was generous and the fresh noodles is certainly a bonus. I will probably stay clear of the soups and head for the stirfries instead. You might want to head there early, it's a small restaurant with a steady stream of customers.
