S$3 wanton noodles + S$1 pork ribs & larpok crispy lard

S$3 wanton noodles + S$1 pork ribs & larpok crispy lard

i had the small $3 wanton noodles. char siew looked anaemic but moist & tasty! i added $1 pork ribs. they were very good, nicely braised, tender & tasty. the wanton & soup were very good too. & the noodles qq, stringy & excellent tasting sauce.

one of the better wanton noodles i had, but i still think kok kee’s is the best la (though kok kee’s small is S$4.50 c/w S$3 here).

& the dumpling soup 水饺汤 is the best here, much much better than kok kee’s (which is non descript). here S$3 for 5 dumplings, firm & very tasty, just the right texture & taste & the soup was great too!

bakchormee - S$3

bakchormee – S$3

the S$3 bakchormee was kind of average.

my daughter said it was not too bad. by the time i took it after 15mins queue at jian kang it was a bit soggy.

taste was ok but not standing out, like-

  1. tai hwa bakchormee (one michelin star*) or
  2. ah hoe meepok or
  3. jln tua kong meepok tar at 6th avenue.
heng kee fishball noodles stall #02-85

heng kee fishball noodles stall #02-94

not much queue also, before or after i ordered.

i am thinking to try the other corner wanton noodles with a queue (a bit shorter like 5-6pax) the next time.
