Rave reviews by the Burpple community about the noodles here had always triggered the drools. I had no luck on my first visit in the early evening, missing out on their last bowl by mere minutes. So for my second attempt, I made sure to arrive earlier and was rewarded for my effort but still had to settle for “you mian” (fine noodles) instead of my preferred “mee hoon kway” (flat, torn pieces) which had sold out.
Their noodles are the firmest of any handmade noodle stalls I have tried. Don’t get me wrong - I am not complaining because I prefer all manner of noodles cooked al dente. The dry version I chose came with a fragrant sauce of sesame oil, dark soya sauce and some chilli to toss the noodles in. On hindsight, I should have asked for extra chilli because the default didn’t have enough of a kick for me. Their murky soup, so sweet and tasty, was definitely way above average. I guess that’s why T.H.‘s bowl of “mee sua” soup was also a cut above in shiok-ness. Something worth considering if you are in the mood for something comfortingly soft and soupy.
