I discovered this stall while I was in the area in the afternoon to check out Ciél Pâtisserié and expected them to be just a dessert place. So the hungry me (no lunch) instinctively would head to some coffee shops I know to get my local fare fix. I remembered there’s a Muslim coffee shop at this Block 118 but I was shock to discover a new coffee shop, Yummy Growth (it’s on Google Maps) has replaced it, which works for me as well.
I was scanning through all the stalls and was wondering what to eat for lunch. I was definitely captured by the roast meats stall but the stall with an outstanding 云吞面 caught my eye. The stall uncle was the only one who called out to me and introduced his food to me. Full marks for sales efforts. At first I wanted to order the wanton noodle but he mentioned how good his curry chicken noodle was and even offered me a sample of the gravy before I made my executive lunch decision. Check out the pics below and the short video clip is on my Instagram (http://instagram.com/p/0mlHQyplQP/) for friends who have not followed me yet. 😉
Taste: Robust, rich and very tasty gravy. Better than Hong Lim’s if you ask me. It’s a recipe that is passed down by the grandparents. Level of spice is just nice, considering the fact it’s in a neighborhood, there should be kids who’d love this. Love the fact they have some bean sprouts inside to make it less gelat. Would be great if they throw in some Choy Sum also to beautify the bowl. Love the curry with mee kia (fine egg noodles) as they would absorb the curry sauce on every mouthful. The chicken is very tender, and you’ll have 3pcs of chicken which makes up a drumstick and a couple of piece of potatoes. Worth your trip there.
Portion: Maybe size does really matter, my portion of noodles were quite not normal. But I’m not complaining haha. Show the uncle or aunty this blogpost you may get a bigger portion like mine! 🙂
Service: Attentive, warm.
Ambience: Coffee shop… Late afternoon quite dark, they turned on the lights for me to snap pics. 🙂
RTE: Yes I prolly would bring mum there!
Location: Yummy Growth coffeeshop, 118 Hougang Avenue 1.
