Enjoyed this! The noodles were hk-style crystal noodles, springy with a nice bite to it. The sauce is decent, and you can opt for green chilli.

I liked the char siew a lot - it’s lean but not dry, marinate is q tasty, on the sweet side. I even got some crunchy corner edges! Wantons were not bad too, the filling was seasoned with sesame oil, there were some sesame seeds too. Satisfied!

Tasted q old school. The noodles weren’t really springy, but I liked the simple dressing it had, just a bit of lard, not heavy at all. Char siew was pretty lean and dry, wantons were alright but some might find it too plain. It’s passable and I’m glad to have finally tried it but I don’t think I’ll be hankering for it. I think this for those who like such old school flavours!

The noodles were p springy, somewhat like those HK style crystal noodles but not as thin. They were dressed in a light but savoury-sweet sauce, with either shallots/garlic that makes it quite fragrant and tasty.

Char siew is quite sweet, lean but not rly dry, somewhat a bit like bak kwa? But not as hard. Was better than expected because visually it was too brightly red for my liking.

Wanton soup is quite nice, had that comforting, classic wanton soup taste. Wanton skins were slippery smooth, but filling was ok, not particularly flavourful. The fried wanton was v crunchy, preferred this!

Overall I quite liked it and would revisit/recommend :)

Banmian was al dente and chewy! It’s very nice. There's mani cai which I love, a lot of minced meat, shallots and crunchy ikan bilis, plus an onsen egg with a runny yolk that I added on for $1. The dark sauce could do with more depth but I'm alright with it, sometimes there isn’t a need for so much flavour in the sauce. The important thing for me is the texture of the noodles, which is satisfying. I like that it isn't too lardy so it's not too heavy.

What a great find! Noodles are thin and springy, very hk-style, has a nice almost crunchy bite to it. Sauce is not a dark sauce, slightly savoury but not lardy. There is a slight alkaline taste but nothing too off putting, I think it’ll be covered if u opt for chilli sauce. Char siew is lean but not dry tho, but it is not the focus, it’s not the caramelised kind.

Soup is the type of nice wanton soup I like, no strong alkaline taste. Wantons have a nice sesame oil fragrance, was p smooth and slippery, and crunchy bc there’s water chestnut/carrots. I wishes the green chilli was more sour. Overall really liked how it was light on the palate but still v tasty and satisfying!

Shoutout for the ceramic bowls they use to serve their food, it seems minor but it adds to the enjoyment, rather than eating from a plastic bowl

This was rather tasty! Noodles are soft and plain, a good base for the ingredients. The zaier is crisp, and so is the taukee. The mock charsiew is surprisingly nice, it has a sweet marinade and didn’t taste like the typical mock meats. Tofu and cabbage were tasty too!

I quite like this Ru Yi franchise. The food at all 3 outlets I’ve tried - tiong bahru, margaret drive and this were satisfying. But I find that this BB outlet is a bit stingy with the ingredients. The auntie carefully plates each portion, so maybe that’s why it feels so? But anyway, if you want more ingredients then probably get the bigger portion.

Noodles have a nice texture, it’s slightly softer than al dente but still has a bite. I like this but it’s considered soft for the true al dente standard. Tastes a bit like pasta?? It’s rather smooth and kinda slippery. Portions here are p large.

Dark sauce is fine, tasty enough - not sure if there’s lard but it’s not very oily. Sliced pork is lean, not v tender, some pieces were kinda tough. Minced pork was softer. Ikan bilis was crunchy, shallots fragrant.

Egg drop soup was tasty!! Not salty. Overall, enjoyed my bowl of noodles, it’s quite shiok when piping hot. Compared to my fav penang heng heng, this feels more like an everyday option, as it’s not as lardy and noodles are not as thick and filling.

Noodles were quite springy, but sauce was quite average, and was a little dry bc there’s a lot of noodles. Had to add some soup. Charsiew looks dry but it’s fine, it’s very lean but not tough, not exactly a charsiew but more like lean pork slices. The soup wantons were slippery smooth, while the fried ones were very crunchy. Filling is decent. There’s quite a bit of veg too, compared to the miserable 2-3 pieces of veg at many places.

Portions were pretty substantial, definitely very value for money. Otherwise I think it’s an average wanton mee stall, every component is fine but nothing really stands out. Can try if you don’t know what to go for at whampoa, but not a must eat! Maybe the shrimp dumpling would be more outstanding!

Wantons we’re smooth and slippery, sufficiently filled and nicely seasoned. Soup had a nice flavour. Noodles were thin and springy, more to the HK crystal noodles style, tossed in a dark sauce. Charsiew was lean, some pieces were quite nice, some dry, and had a sweet marinade. Fried wantons were v crisp tho a bit salty. Overall was satisfied, was a good find!

Went to Shunfu Market recently, and this stall caught my eye with its long lines! But waiting time wasn’t too long thankfully.

Soup was clear and tasty, felt quite light and clean - I think this isn’t suited for those who love a super rich prawn soup. This had a more old school taste to it, and the soup felt more porky than prawny. I liked it tho, it hits the spot when you want prawn mee but don’t feel like having something so heavy.

The beehoon went well with the soup, lean pork slices were rather tender, and prawns though small, were firm and sweet. There’s beansprouts and kangkong too, along with LORGE chonky pieces of crisp lard and fried shallots. I would get this again!

Spring roll is crisp with crunchy turnips, zai er is crunchy. The mock meat is decent, beehoon is quite moist and springy! They also have egg noodles if you’re not feeling like having beehoon, it tastes like wedding noodles that is nicely fried too. Cabbage is soft but still crunchy. Another veg beehoon stall to add to my rotation!

This is from their outlet at United Square’s food court.

Surprisingly decent banmian! I didn’t mind the texture of the noodles even tho it was a bit soft and thinner than usual banmian. Slurpy and tbh felt a bit like pasta but in a non-Italian sauce 😂 The ingredients were okay, minced meat was soft and dumplings crunchy, I wish they gave more than that token amount of vegetables tho. Added on an egg (+$0.50) bc I wanted a runny yolk. I am appalled that I paid $7 for ban mian tho.
