Off to Amoy Street Food Center for the wide array of cheap and good local food today! The queues had already formed at those popular stalls and it is not even 12pm!
After much contemplation, decided to go queue at Tai Seng Noodle House as the queue was not too long yet and I had tried it before. This is the first time time I joined the queue myself as my cols had ordered for me previously while I “look after” the table. 😛 From the signage at tte stall, they have Char Siew Wanton Noodle, Fried Fish Wanton Noodle and Mushroom & Pork Rib Noodle all going from $3.
As I got closer to the stall, I saw the uncle mixing the sauces from 6 container. From my guess, they should be tomato ketchup, sesame oil, chilli sauce (2 types) ,dark sauce and soya sauce. Did not get to verify it as I was chatting away with my course mate. Will do it the next time 😛 I had wanted to order the Pork Rib Noodle but was unsure how it will turn out hence ordered the wanton mee. It was too late to change my order when I saw the plate of plate rib noodle another customer had ordered.
Close up of the Pork Rib Noodle. The meat portion looks so generous and so well stewed and the noodles was accompanied with deep fried wanton and wanton in soup too! Must try it the next time.
My Lunch – Char Siew Wanton Noodle 叉焼云吞面 , $3 that came with a mountain of noodles, 3 deep fried wanton, 6 dumplings in the soup and lots of lean roasted pork and vegetables. I realised that the portion is not consistent as the Auntie randomly threw the noodles and ingredients onto the plate. Another course mate who ordered the same thing had twice the amount of noodles that I had! *phew* For $3, this is definitely a value for money lunch if you do not mind its messy appearance 😛
Close up of the half dozen of mini wantons in this bowl of soup. I like the taste of the soup and the petite size of the wantons. People who want meatier ones may find that it lacks the shiok-ness of stuffing a big fat dumpling into the mouth.
Like the Chinese saying goes 穷吃包, 富吃巧. If you are on a budget and looking for something to fill your stomach, this is one stall that you can consider. 🙂
