Tanglin Halt Delicious Duck Noodle @ Tanglin Halt Food Centre


Located at one of the earliest HDB neighbourhood at Tanglin Halt, Tanglin Halt Delicious Duck Noodle has been around since 1969. Founded by Mr Chua's father in law since 1960s selling the braised duck noodle dish to coolies and workers at Teochew Street in Clark Quay. The stall is now run by Mr Chua and his wife. Having learnt the duck braising skill from his father in law, Mr Chua continues painstakingly braising the Teochew style duck at his stall in the early hour.

After queuing for about 15-20 minutes, I got to order my bowl of Duck Noodle Dry ($4). I opted for kway teow instead of yellow noodle. After cooking the noodle, Mr Chua will topped the bowl of noodle with pre-sliced duck meats, duck gizzards and livers.

So how did I find the nostalgic flavour of 1960s? While the duck meat was flavourful but I felt it was a tad dry. The kway teow texture was a a bit too thick and not as smooth as I would like. Overall it was still a decent bowl of duck noodle that comes with a rustic taste that probably will bring back childhood memories for a lot of people.
