* This place has closed :( Please try somewhere else. * 南生 Madam Leong or "Ah Mah" as she is affectionately known has been making wonton noodles and other Cantonese dishes the old fashion way for over 50 years. Her first shop in 1958 was next to the old National Library. Times have changed but her food remains a favourite with Singaporeans young and old.

This long-running cafe run by a gregarious Cantonese granny is more well-known for its wanton mee than its fried rice, so I thought I’d try the latter. Sadly it’s nothing to shout about and the portion wasn’t very filling either.

Taste: 2.5/5


What I hate most about eating wanton mee is the alkaline noodles. I tend to avoid wanton mee even though I really like the dish on the whole, but sometimes the alkaline noodles are really overpowering! If you’re like me, then you’d like Nam Seng’s noodles.

Sold by the iconic founder (I believe), the old granny takes the orders and shouts it across to the chefs cooking the orders. The queue gets long quickly, but food is served fast too. I waited around 5 mins for my order and it was ready!

Noodles were al dente and soaked in the blissful, oily sauce of the soy sauce chicken. It was a WHOLE thigh! Definitely very generous and I’ll be back for more. Readers might also be happy to know that I packed this and took a 30 min journey on a cab home.

P.S. the bones in the chicken thigh was a bit annoying, but for $5 only, let’s not complain 🤪

Located at 25 China Square Street, Far East Square #01-01 Singapore 049567. Nam Seng Venison Hor Fan, $6. Always top on my list for one of the yummiest Venison hor fan around! Thin, smooth, silky soft and dark color hor fan fully soaked in the thick, savoury gravy! They are very generous in their Venison meat, it seems endless as we eat🤣.. Venison meat is very very tender and it fully absorbed the fragrant gravy, making it so juicy! We finished every bit of it, not letting go of even the last mouthful of gravy! Be prepared to Q patiently during weekday lunch time, it’s all worth it! #hungryunicornsg #namseng #namsengnoodles #venisonhorfun #venison #horfan

Noodles are al dente. The way I like them to be.
like the background of the shop the most. :) and the old Aunty who seems to be holding the forte :)

Located at Far East Square, 25 China Street, #01-01 Singapore 049567. One of my favourite Wanton Mee! Springy noodles, lightly salted sauce(not the typical black sauce), flavorful char siew and wanton! Craving satisfied✔️ Do also say Hello to the friendly old Cantonese aunty at the counter too! She looks fierce but she’s actually very friendly! #hungryunicornsg #namseng #namsengnoodles #wantonmee #wantonnoodles
