Like what the regulars recommend, cutting across the street and ordering a plate of wu xiang while you wait for your prawn noodles from River South Hoe Nam is just the way to go! Lao Zhong Zhong Fine Spice Stall’s awesome fried goodness also serve as perfect sides with your porridge from Soon Li Whitley Food Centre Pork Porridge, if you are into some rainy day comfort. Well-executed and not overtly oily, all the items we tried were excellent. My favourites were the moist tau kwas with melt-in-your-mouth textures and the light as well as crispy prawn fritters. The spiced ngoh hiang was good too, a pleasant mix of sweet and savoury. And of course, the spicy-tangy chilli sauce on the side adds to the whole appeal and pulls in the crowd.
