Still love the double boiled soup, and was surprised to find out that they use white tofu for their hot plate tofu rather than the more common egg tofu. Though it didn’t have that sour edge I love and had a sweet sauce hur hur.

Fortunately skipped the Valentine’s Day crowd/menu ($168++ for three courses?!) to have a quiet dinner the day before. Opted for the double boiled soup ($6 for a serving) and the tom yum seafood rice ($10 for a serving). The double boiled soup was comforting old cucumber pork rib soup, which was tasty and soft to bite. The rice was average, with three pieces of prawn. I think the curry fish head ($30) would be a better option if you have interested dining companions! It smelled delicious, and I spotted multiple tables sharing it. Service staff were also really good!

Ordered the ragout tagliatelle ($25++), which turned out to be a fancy beef bolognese that still isn’t the best out there :’( The pasta was perfectly al dente, and the sauce rich. However, dish felt cheap with the use of ground beef that didn’t have much bite to it. It also turned out to be jelak / fairly overwhelming about halfway through the dish. Perplexing as they are generous with the ingredients for the seafood risotto (also heavy tasting, but very much worth its price point). But worth a mention that service was good :)

TL;DR you really have to love beef bolognese to enjoy this dish (which I did), but likely leave feeling cheated.

I come to Northpoint often but never noticed Nuodle until I searched Burpple haha. It’s in the new wing, opposite hotwind. Hubs and I ordered the signature beef la mian with flat noodles and the bean paste la mian (zhajiangmian) with normal noodles + two drinks for $13.80 total. The zhajiangmian is more like a light stew with cubes of chicken, potato, carrots, and tofu. Healthier, but not thick paste with minced meat that you’d expect or crave. The beef la mian was tastier, though fairly salty. Portions are filling, and it’s a decent stop for food in Northpoint. Only wish that my zhajiangmian came piping hot instead of lukewarm!

Enjoyed the wagyu beef set ($49.99) and the pork collar (not pictured) ordered using Burpple Beyond, with the tang hoon. I didn’t count, but I think it was at least eight pieces of wagyu beef and pork collar each? Meat was tender. There was a decent spread of veggies, mushroom, beancurd items. The mala soup base is tasty and spicy. In contrast, the herbal chicken soup base was flat and bitter. Was hungry before dinner and usually eat big portions, but struggled to finish this! Friend had the bak kut teh soup base, which is extremely peppery, and enjoyed the sour tom yum soup base.

Don’t think I’d order the wagyu beef set again without 1-for-1 as $49.99 is quite steep. But worth coming back for their more affordable sets.

Dumpling Darlings dishes out QQ noodles with unusual dumplings and drink lunch sets for an affordable $16++ (even better with Burpple Beyond yo). Opted for the miso mushroom noodles + fried pierogi + longan osmanthus pu-erh. The miso mushroom noodles taste like the atas version of noodles you’d find at a coffeeshop, with a massive heap of fried onions and spring onions with every bite. Enjoyed the noodles’ springiness, but the rest really depends on how much you like the toppings. Fried pierogi stole the show with the savoury goodness of smooth truffle potato and bacon, while the drink grew on me with each sip. Saw them smashing up an actual piece of osmanthus jelly during drink prep!

* Come before 11.45am latest to snag a seat before the queue gets crazy. Was a cosy place despite the crowd and chatter.
* Tried my friend’s Sichuan dumpling and found it underwhelming. The sauce looked like chilli vinaigrette but was sweet, and drowned the taste of the meat.
