Was back the next day, that's how good the noodles are. It's got a better texture when u dine in, less soft. Got it without chili this time and it doesn't make much of a difference honestly.

However the uncle is really, really unpleasant. (That's all about the food, the rest is about the uncle. Do consider if he is worth the food, otherwise come at the crowded time so he doesn't talk to you much)
First of all he's very snappy, and giving you attitude no matter he's busy or not. Doesn't answer questions properly, I asked him what is in the black sauce and he told me opium. Ya whatever it's a stupid joke but I didn't catch it twice cos he wasn't speaking clearly, then he snapped at me the third time.

Following that he asked me where I'm from and started commenting on my people, being a racist and sexist at the same time.

He deserves credit for the effort he puts into his food tho. People bear with his nonsense and the long waiting time because the food is really that unique. But whether u want to is your personal choice, I would try it once at least

PSA: stupid design for the board, basically the base is always black sauce with scallion oil. Then you have a choice of whether u want chili or not, and the chili mixed in is "tom yum style" chili paste

Noodles were soft when we got home 5mins later, but I still like the texture.
Chili was fiery on its own but not very pronounced when mixed in.

The black sauce was absolutely lovely. No idea what's in there but the sweetness and the thickness makes it probably the best I've had. The scallion oil was aromatic too but it was abit too generous

Chicken thigh pieces were fine but the meatballs were abit too soft. Soup was thick and very flavourful, abit too salty tho

Overall it's a great bowl

PS however the wait was insanely long. Dude is a one man show and somehow even tho he isn't moving particularly slowly, it's still a pain when there's only 3 ppl ordering

this is one of the more interesting you mian I've tried so far. with the addition of lala, it gave the soup a unique taste to touch.
the noodles is very chewy and qq and I've noticed the cook double dunked it and hence giving it the bouncy chewy texture.
the minced meat was very well seasoned and the spinach gave the dish a refreshing crunch.
special mention to the ikan bilis because it is really crispy and crunchy!
for the price point, this is super worth it, jam packed with generous servings of minced meat and lala.

Looks like the addiction of dry handmade noodles has struck me hard! Here is another great store I would include in my top handmade noodles list along with bigger names like Grandma Ban Mee and Greenview Cafe. Situated within the humble Yuhua Market & Hawker Centre, Lai Lai U Mian is one of my recent favourite discoveries.

What makes this store distinct from other handmade noodles is its ultra springy thin noodles and the most fragrant shallots that are fried to crisp perfection. I was pleasantly surprised with the aroma of fried shallots from the start and the delicious scent lingered throughout.

Besides the original chilli, the stores also offers a tom yum chilli which I will return to try one day. In addition to the dry u mian, they also have a soup variation and other toppings such as lala/clams.
