We are continuing our hawker food hunt and this brought us to Toa Payoh West Market and Food Centre! Despite it's name, this hawker centre is nearer to Caldecott than to Toa Payoh MRT. More than half the stalls were open on a Sunday morning and we were able to find seats easily.

First up, we ordered the dry version of the shredded chicken noodles from Lau Sim Shredded Chicken Noodles. This was a bowl of mee kia tossed in vinegar and some chilli paste, topped with shredded chicken and mushrooms. This was the small serving and the amount of noodles were fairly little, and it might be just enough for one person. We thought the stall could have been more generous with the chicken given that it is the mainstay, though we felt it was still a great dish.

The soup came with 2 dumplings and 2 fishballs and it was fairly comforting on a cool morning, although the soup itself was a little salty and we didn't finish drinking the entire bowl as a result.
