面对面 - Just Noodles


A Food Review on the current Channel 8 Variety Shows - Just Noodles, 面对面.
*Note: All are my personal review and some are quotes from the show itself or from I-Weekly.

First Stop: 云吞面
云吞面, also known as wan ton noodles or 馄饨面 is a local dish from the end of the Qing Dynasty and reappear in GuangZhuo, XiGuan. It was past on from HuNan.
During the Song Dynasty, the local will prepare the wan ton during the Winter Solstice for their ancestors. Later, the early majority of labors sell it by the hawkers trafficking. And thus, the local slowly passed it on to Singapore(:

Here's the actual speech from the show, Just Noodles - 清末民初,广州西关一代出现的, 同治年间从湖南传入下来。 宋代每逢冬至,各家包馄饨祭祖。后来初期多数是由小贩肩挑贩卖。就因为这样,慢慢的就带来新加坡。

The first stop, i'm going to introduce is located at 271 Onan Road #02-19, Dunman Road Food Centre - 德明叉烧云吞面
What i personally like about this stall is that their wanton as its very sweet and juicy.
You can taste the sweetness of the prawns.
What's more you definitely have to try their chilli sauce - its homemade.
Plus, it only cost $2.50 per bowl BUT they only sell dry ones.
Another highlight is the noodle is very Q and you never stop craving for more(:
If you're a fan of lard residue, you definitely cant miss coming down to this stall - lard residue is FOC = you can take as many as one
BUT remember to tell the uncle when you're ordering the noodle as they will not add for you AUTOMATICALLY.

There's a carpark below Dunman Food Centre and a mini carpark across the road.
If not, you'll have to park at the the parking lots behind the Food Centre which has a stretch of parking lots in between the Condos.

The stall is open from Friday - Wednesday (closed on thursday).
Operating hours: 10am - 10pm.

The next stop is located at 91 Bencoolen Street, Sunshine Plaza #01-53/85 - 百灵炸云吞面美食屋
When i walked in, the stall is a little bit like a mini food centre located inside shopping mall
And it's featured on The Straits Times under Life, and also a few magazines.

The highlight of this stall is the deep fried wanton, not the normal wanton nor the soup nor the noodle.
My dad even ordered $6 of deep fried wanton.
You can see how yummy it is for my dad to keep wanting more.

If you cant find Sunshine Plaza, just look for NUS or SOTA School (not sure if it's SOTA but i remember clearly i DID spot SOTA when driving down to Sunshine Plaza)
Not much comments for this stall, but the only highlight, is the deep fried wanton & THAT'S ALL!
Oh, it cost $4 per bowl.

The stall is open daily from 9.30am - 9pm
Same thing, AVOID LUNCH PERIOD as in the middle of CBD (central business district) and is opposite SOTA school

The final stall for wanton noodles is located at 6 Keong Saik Road - 丰记咖啡店
This stall wasn't introduced on Just Noodles but it was featured on I-Weekly.
For this stall, the best-seller is actually not wanton noodles but their 油鸡饭 and 烧鸡饭/叉烧饭.
It's opened by a cantonese family and their barbecued pork is definitely the highlight for this stall.

Their barbecued pork tastes the BEST.
What i like about it is the burning taste of the pork, the burnt characoal smell has been absorbed into the barbecued pork and the taste never leaves your mouth.
Not only that, their noodles is very Q full of elasticity and thier chilli sauce is also another highlight.
Same as the first stall, which i've introduced, their chilli sauce is homemade.

Coming back to the main 'actor', the wanton tastes sweet.
The ingredients include meat, prawn and 马蹄
But you won't have the cruchy from the 马蹄.

If you can't find the stall, here are some clues (i took 8mins to find it)

The stall is opposite a temple(above pic) and the stall looks like this (below pic)

If you're thinking where to park your car,
there's a mini carpark behind the stall and also a few stretch of parking lots along Keong Saik Road.
Needless for me to state the price, as its displayed at my above picture(:

The stall is closed on Sunday and Public Holiday.
Operating Hours: 11am - 8pm
SAME THING, AVOID LUNCH PERIOD as it's located a few lanes outside of CBD and People's Park Plaza.

Here's a summary of all 3stalls:
Noodles: I would prefer 丰记咖啡店 as compared to 德明叉烧云吞面
Soup: 丰记咖啡店
Wan Ton: 德明叉烧云吞面
Deep Fried Wan Ton: 百灵炸云吞面美食屋
Barbecued pork: 丰记咖啡店

Overall: 丰记咖啡's the winner for Wan Ton Noodles.
