Big Bowl Noodles

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.

I so love XO sauce! The dumplings look great. My favourite thing in Cantonese noodles. I never fail to order the shrimp dumpling noodles, they are so plump and juicy... yummers!

Woo...that bowl of dumpling noodle looks generous indeed! I miss making my own dumplings though.

I think anything with XO sauce in it shd be good, but on the pricey side. Was the XO seafood noodles expensive? :P

Yes, I like anything with XO sauce too! I am very tempted in buying XO sauce, but pricy is the right word!

Oh for the love of food! said...

We ate there once - we had a grilled noodle with cheese which I didn't like and I can't even remember what the rest of the dishes were.
I love XO sauce noodles - ever been to CHI in Vic Park? They make a really yummy XO noodles with beef ;o)

Xo noodles looked quite basic, but I suppose the proof is in the pudding, or noodle, in this case, :)

singairishgirl-ya! Shrimp dumpling noodles is my fav too! I like that better than wantan noodles. hehe

tigerfish- lives up to its name huh. Speaking of which, I might take that idea up and make some dumplings over the weekend. The XO noodles was more expensive $12!!

Little corner-i so agree! but probably cheaper than eating out i suppose...hmm..

joe- yeah!!

Carol- thanks for the tip! I won't order the grill noodles with cheese. keke.. YES! CHI is great man! Their dumplings are fantastic and so is their claypot yam and pork belly! YUMMY.

Hazza- yeah, i think their selling point is their fresh noodles.
