Spotted this stall the other day and swear that I’ll be back to try their wanton noodles. Reason? I saw Pork Collar char siew. Then I thought it could be part of a special order or something, hell no! It’s the char siew they use for their noodles!!! Maituliao, Lim Peh is back here to check it out. To my surprise, it’s better than I thought!!! Found out also they have been operating for more than 20 years! See comments below!
Taste: I seldom give wanton noodles full rating but this plate of noodles won me over. Noodles were supple and springy, sauce is blended nicely balancing the sweet and savoury, the pork collar char siew was heavenly (can be a little more charred will be best) and last but not least, the wantons… normally only fatty minced meat right? This one has shrimps in them! No shit, shrimps! So much effort!
Portion: Noodle portion a bit little for me lah cos so delicious right! Big eaters please ask for ‘Ma Dai’, which means double the noodles!
Ambience: Hawker Centre
Location: #01-22 Ghim Moh Market. 7am to 2pm (Closed on Mon)
Sorry for not writing much lately cos most quick updates are done on my Instagram account @eatwithroy. You guys can follow me there too. Work has been tiring cos a lot of stuffs to do at the beginning and hope operations will smooth out soon.
Wanted a nice local brekkie yesterday and I thought I should visit a coffeeshop which I haven't visited for the longest time. The coffeeshop has renovated and there are many stalls there now with pretty impressive offerings. However, they have adopted the self-service mode and everyone has to queue to get their food. Gone are the days when you can order and find a seat. So it's quite tough for one person to find a seat during peak periods, hence have to share table. I waited for like 15 mins as there were some orders before me:
Taste: Got the old school taste and although it looks plain, it's very tasty! Love the suppleness of the noodles. Damn yums!
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!!!
