Clicking open the eDM from @morselsinsingapore caused me a serious case of “heart eyes” accompanied by a side of racing pulse. Their “Wonton Mee”, a noodles special for the week, looked too enticing to miss. So I made like an aerodynamic packet of tissue and reserved via Chope.
Some might baulk at the $28++ price tag but I say this set is worth every damn cent because aside from the egg noodles which are custom-made by a trusted supplier according to Chef-owner Petrina’s specifications, the rest of the ingredients are produced in-house by her and her team. Needless to say, tastiness is unequivocally next level.
Laid on the fine strands of noodles which have been tossed in pork lard oil, mirin and herbal soya sauce is a neat arrangement of juicy, tender slow-cooked pork jowl “char siew”, wontons filled with kimchi-flavoured minced pork, blanched greens and crispy pork lard.
If you can take the heat, mix in all of the green paste served on the side. Created from jalapeños, local chillies, parsley and fresh lime juice, it spikes the contents of your bowl into a fragrant, mouthwatering and very spicy pleasure.
Everyone knows #wontonmee must come with a bowl of soup and Morsels’ take is a luxuriously thick, MSG-free chicken broth so delicious it will have you wishing for more.
If you are keen to try this dish, do note it is available till the 18th of Feb but will return in March due to the rotation basis of Morsels’ noodles menu. I recommend following their Facebook or getting on their emailing list to be kept updated.
