I love scallion oil noodles so I was looking forward to popping by here after seeing Burppler Michelle’s post on it! Really enjoyed the chewy noodles tossed in fragrant scallion oil. Unlike some I’ve had, I liked that Chu Niang’s didn’t leave that layer of greasiness. Was a simple and affordable dish done nicely!

You know how at many tendon spots you’ll end up leaving the shop smelling like a walking tendon yourself? 😂 There’s no such problem here at Tenjin! I loved their calm and inviting space tucked on the 3rd floor of Shaw Centre.

We got to try their new inaniwa udon set that came with cold udon, mentsuyu, assorted tempura and kyabetsu salad. Was very happy to see it on the menu as it’s one of my favorite kinds of udon! Though the tempura should be the star of the show, the thin noodles didn’t lose out at all. They were chewy, smooth and picked up its light sauce very well. As with the other bowls, the lightly battered tempura were cleanly fried and not at all greasy. Will surely be back!

Thank you @tenjinsg for having us and @burpple for the kind invite! ✨

Preferred the tortellini bowl as it had more tender meat, but similarly, we weren’t a big fan of the slightly doughy taste the noodles added into the broth. Would have liked slightly firmer noodles to go along!

Thought it was a teeny bit plain to have this on its own, but the creamy pork bone broth was comforting. Although it was a little more diluted due the addition of noodles (compared to the same bowl of broth served with our dry noodles), it was still rich and easy to slurp down. The wanton skin was smooth and silky, while its vegetable pork filling was tender and well seasoned!

I love handmade noodles but haven’t been to Tongue Tip since I don’t take beef. Finally got the chance to try their chicken dish, thanks to Tiong Bahru Plaza’s ongoing food promotion - ‘Rewind & Unwind to Your Good ‘Ol Food Paradise’ that’s happening till 6 Oct 2019. You get $20 worth of food hunt vouchers at $15, alongside other membership promotions. It’s worth the price and encourages you to explore new food options (& there are loads in TBP)!

Tongue Tip offers 8 types of noodles to choose from and we went with the ‘small flat’ option. The default oil based sauce wasn’t as flavourful, but it helped to toss in a good amount of their vinegar and chilli. The pan fried chicken pieces looked dry, but were surprisingly well seasoned and pretty tender. If you don’t take beef, skip the accompanying broth as it is beef-based. They also have this dry chicken noodles in large ($10.90) or plain ($7.50/$9/50).

Thank you @tiongbahruplazasg & @burpple for the Food Hunt Vouchers! ✨

We enjoyed TONKIN’s well-balanced rendition of this Vietnamese dish. Instead of the usual thicker consistency, the broth is lighter yet still flavourful. Most importantly for me, the broth is not overpowered by tomatoes and you get a distinct crab sweetness. There’s lots of toppings to go along - beancurd, tomatoes, chicken ham and blue crab egg cakes. Was a filling bowl!

Also, if you’re dining with a friend, don’t forget the incredibly value for money Burpple Beyond deal here for 1 for 1 mains!

Heard it’s usually crowded here at DMQ, but we managed to skip the queue as we came by on a weekend. This was a good bowl of dry you mian - noodles were springy and coated in a savoury-sweet sauce that came with a touch of appetising sourness. The accompanying bowl of soup with an egg cracked in was flavourful too. Would get an extra serving of their crunchy ikan bilis next time!

Wasn’t as big a fan of their ban mian as they were a touch too thick, and didn’t quite carry the flavourful soup that well. Think it would work much better in the dry version! That aside, the minced pork and pork slices were tender, and they have a nice variety of toppings like clams, fish and prawns for you to choose from.

We ordered the Bun Canh Ga ($7.80) and this Pho Ga with Burpple Beyond - sooo worth it! Was super pleasantly surprised by the flavourful and comforting broth in this bowl. Sweetness of the chicken in the broth was distinct and we liked how tender the chicken slices were. Although our orders took a little longer, service was friendly and the space was great to chill in. Will be back to try their other items!

A value for money bowl for what it’s served with! $3 and you get fishcakes, 3 fishballs, pork slices and a fish dumpling. Soup was bland, but the noodles were springy and tossed in a nice ketchup-chilli mix. Their queue moves rather slowly, so you might not want to get this if you’re having a quick lunch.

Had just one other biang biang noodles before in Chinatown and between both, I preferred the sauce used here at Xi’an Impressions as the tomatoes weren’t as overwhelming. Biang biang noodles are much wider than our variation of noodles and if you love mee hoon kway’s texture, this is probably something for you. Portion here was huge and toppings were mainly vegetables. It might get a bit too much after awhile, hence would recommend to get another dish to go along and share them with a friend!

Was only 10am but their Fish & Lala Combo ($4) was already sold out 😱 Went with the chicken one since it’s not quite a common option you’ll see at other handmade noodles stalls. The chicken chunks themselves were tender but a little bland, so it’s best to coat them evenly when tossing your noodles in the black sauce and chili. Noodles were springy and q, while the black sauce wasn’t too sweet. Soup was comforting. Was a nice bowl!
