If I don’t work around Changi Road, I wouldn’t have ventured around the area one afternoon on my off day and I wouldn’t have come across this Angmoh Noodle House along Joo Chiat Road. This noodle house has created a buzz some time mid 2012 when the lady boss has decided to stop her business due to poor health and 2 of her regulars and big fans, (who were also her landlords), decided to buy over the business so that they can continue to have their favorite wanton noodles! (These are hardcore foodies man!!!)
Founded in the 60s, this stall is started by a guy named Ao Yang, who has features and complexion of a Caucasian. Hence customers started naming the place as Angmoh Noodle House or Hong Mao Mian Jia in Chinese.
So how does it taste after their takeover? I can’t make any comparison because I have not tried the original lady boss’s one. But, read my reviews below nevertheless:
Taste: I was actually quite surprise with the taste of this noodle! It actually has the traditional taste or what we refer as 古早 taste. The younger generation may not know this taste as most wanton noodle places these days do not use cooked oil (熟油 in Cantonese. Ask your parents or grandparents, they may know!) in their noodles anymore. Love the taste, love the springy noodle texture, soup was peppery and so were the wantons. Wantons also have an authentic taste which I have childhood memories of. Didn’t try the rest on the menu because I was having this in between main meals. 😉
Ambience: Fan, partial aircon, coffeeshop style.
Price: $3.50. Should have ordered the $4.50 plate!!!
Location: 182 Joo Chiat Road. Opening hours: Daily 7am to 8pm. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AngMohWantonNoodle
