Not too bad. Happy they added the onsen egg to mix with the noodles, otherwise it might've turned out to be dry.

Forgot the name of the stall! Was too hungry to remember 😅...

While the ingredients were plentiful and chunky for the small-sized serving, it lacked the wok hei and umami. I'm guessing the stock used to braise the noodles didn't have enough flavour.

Was wandering about City Square Mall looking for a dinner place, and decided on The Old Pontian Cafe as it wasn't crowded.

Ordered the Crispy Noodles and was pleasantly surprised as it didn't taste that bad as I thought it would, at such an affordable price too. Added $1 for a cup of chilled homemade barley too.

Exploring Joo Chiat Place and got hungry when I chanced upon this wanton mee place.

If u like wanton mee not overpowered by the taste of sauces then this is the place for you. Noodles were al dente but lacked the springy quality I usually like and lookout for. The ingredients like char siew and fried wanton are a tad on the sparse/small side too for large portion ordered.

The shrimp dumplings were alright but nothing that stood out to make it memorable.

Was expecting the normal lemongrass tea with a splash of milk but turned out to be Thai milk tea (cha yen) with a splash of lemongrass. Quite a unique taste but still prefer pure cha yen or lemongrass tea.

Didn’t look like the usual reddish Thai prawn/fish cakes I was used to seeing at Thai eating places. The prawn cakes came in either 2 or 4 pieces and each were almost the size of my balled-up fist!

Came freshly fried and piping hot so eat with care, plum sauce was also provided as a condiment to the prawn cakes.

A staple whenever I go for Thai food. Was a bit on the salty side which most of the time this dish is but when paired with rice makes it so yummy! Recommended to have it with steamed fluffy white jasmine rice.

Do not underestimate this salad! Simple looking but refreshes with each bite make you wanting more!

The wok hei from this dish was nicely done and the paste used in frying up the rice was umami goodness!

Follow up to my previous pic of the Tom Ka Soup by JJ Thai @ Victory 8 Sembawang

After my first time trying northern Thailand’s version of tom yum soup containing coconut milk at A-Roy Thai, have always been on the lookout for it.

Pleasantly surprised by JJ Thai’s version which was spicy, sour and full-bodied, whetting my appetite with each sip. The prawns used in the soup were also big and fleshy with good ‘bite’.

The sweet and spicy sambal lala (clams) definitely made a good companion to the umami fishhead soup. Could not stop slathering the sauce over steaming white rice and eating it with the fresh and tender clam flesh.
