Noodles Galore @ Lavender Food Square

Hey folks, this is going to be a short post. No grandmother story 🙂

I met Desmond for a quick meal and had to rush home to pack for my trip. In a few hours time, I’m off to the Coconut Island, Phuket, Thailand! Yup, you might see me climbing coconut trees like a monkey… If only I’m that agile 😉

Desmond has never been to this food centre so I had to show off and bring him here. He had the Mee Pok Ta (Chinese Fettuccine Dry version) that came with a bowl of clear consomme-like soup with fish balls (one with minced chilli in it) and some slices of fish cakes. He added on a huge fish-sized fish cake for S$1 more but the sign said S$1.20.

Desmond liked the translucent al dente noodles tossed in sambal chilli and tomato ketchup loaded with lard and garnished with spring onions. He liked it. Yay!

My meal was from Kim’s Noodles. This was the first time I had Ding Ji, a Teochew noodle dish with lots of porky stuff. The braised pork ribs was flavoursome albeit on the tough side. I had to use my hands to eat them and luckily I brought my hand sanitizer. Fish ravioli was a little below par. Noodle seasoning was well balanced. Other ingredients included sliced pork, minced pork, pork ball, prawn and stewed mushrooms. For S$5, I think it’s value for money.

Ding Ji - S$5. It is a variation of Teochew Noodle.
