as some hungrygowhere reviewers said – lost & found! 🙂 see also for old time sake @ xin lu fish ball noodles.
used to frequent often to buy back when the stall was at margaret drive. though i knew it had moved to telok blangah crescent, i had not bothered to go look for it – somewhat less craving for cha kuay teow of late.
anyway decided to go last evening on 4.9.2013. everything was as before! 🙂
the cha kuay teow man looked as “young” & healthy as before. the queue was as long as before – about constantly 10+ pax & on average 3plates/packets per pax & our friend cooked 1 plate at a time just as before, so long time to wait – we waited 40 minutes as before! 🙂 the “hum” (cockles) were as huge & plump as before, and the taste as good & “pang” (fragrant) and quite a bit of “la pok” (fried lard) as before. 🙂
price was S$3 which was very fair for a large plate with lots of “hum”. where this was concerned, i was a risk taker so i had my “hum”raw (uncooked & just place on top of the noodles).
