I was with Kimberly and Nicole having our tea break at Truffs after our Restaurant Week lunch at Gunther's French Modern Cuisine. Since Amoy Street Food Centre is just around the corner, Nicole suggested we checked this new noodle stall. It was through fellow blogger Karen that we get to know about A Noodle Story at Amoy Street Food Centre.
Opened in February 2013 by a duo trained in Shatec, the pair of noodles lovers created their very own local style Singapore ramen, gourmet quality noodles at hawker prices using modern culinary techniques and Asian flavours. A bowl of the noodle costs $5/$6/$7. It is really quite value for money consider the amount of ingredients that come with the noodle.
In the bowl of Singapore style ramen, you can find Hong Kong Style Wonton, Freshly Sliced Scallions, Cha Su, Crispy Potato Wrapped Prawn, Hot Spring Egg and of course the Springy Noodles. I was told that during my visit the stall was using Wu Hua Rou for their Cha Su for the past 2 weeks for the leaner meat but will be switching back to pork belly for its aroma and tenderness. The crispy potato wrapped prawn is quite unique. It is like having fried prawn wrapped by rosti.
Singapore Style Ramen 4.2/5
The stall has created this simple yet complicated dish specially to suit the local taste buds. Why so? It is because the simplest dish to make is actually the most complicated. For me it is either you hate it or like it. Why so? The reason is the noodle. In terms of texture the thin noodles really has a very springy and enjoyable texture. However it has an alkaline taste that was still acceptable to me but may not for many.
The stall is still pretty new and it is still going through refinement and adjustment of the ultimate noodle dish. I look forward for the stall to achieve the dream of serving their Singapore style ramen not only to the locals but all over the world.
