Located at the old estate of Tanglin Halt, this outstanding stall operates from early evening all the way till late midnight, making it as one of the popular supper places for me!“Guang Zhou Mian Shi Wanton Noodle” is also a reputation that has been passed down to the current third generation to continue serving this scrumptious dish!
Despite operating at a rather late hours, this stall still does not lack its own line of loyal customers who kept coming back for more, including one of the very famous Singapore filmmaker, Eric Khoo, whom actually wrote an article on it.
At such odd hours, you could totally see a long queue of people just waiting to indulge in it, which is rather amazing to me!
This stall offers only two main delights which is their wanton noodle & dumpling noodle, where the only difference is that the wanton noodle will contain charsiew meat, as opposed to the dumpling noodle.
I gotten myself a large bowl of wanton noodle that came in a generous portion of charsiew on top of the noodle, and a small bowl of wanton soup.
The noodle itself is of a dry variation that is not soupy, had contained some gravy at the base to make it moist!
Unlike other wanton noodles, the noodle that is served over here, had contained a balanced moisture that is not too overly flavoured from the sauce, nor it is too dry like some!
As a result, you can totally get a feel on each individual noodle strand that carries a very good texture to it, making it delightful with every bite. It is also worth mentioning that the noodle are tasty as a whole, that had completely absorb the flavour of the sambal chilli and the gravy!
I was rather disappointed by its taste that I certainly feel that the charsiew meat could totally be improved way better, which is rather a pity to the overall scrumptious dish!
On the other hand, the bowl of wanton soup that came along, will definitely make up for the disappointment of the charsiew meat, due to the taste & generous portion of wanton dumplings given!
The wanton dumplings were simply outstanding that you can taste the freshness of the pork ingredients on the inside, building on a good sweetness taste to the overall soup essence!
It is definitely worth the price to even go for the larger portion, due to the generous portion of ingredients that are given.
Certainly, if the stall owner would had worked on the tastiness of the charsiew meat itself, it would no doubt be one of the perfect dish!
Nonetheless, it is a dish that is totally worth travelling down for, which I will crave for from time to time!
