I first get to know about Boat Quay (Original) Mishroom Noodle earlier in the year when I visited the stall with my foodie friends in Punggol. Even though the 2nd outlet is a franchise, I am glad that it has opened another stall nearer to my place at Telok Blangah Street 32.
Signature Noodle 4.2/5
I would recommend having the Signature Noodle ($5) which I find is more worth it then the Bak Chor Mee ($3.50) because of the portion and ingredients that come with it. A bowl of the signature noodle comes with 3 fish balls, fish dumpling, Teochew dumpling, mushroom, lean pork and minced pork.
I had the mee pok which is cooked to a enjoyable al dente bite. It is complemented by the chilli sauce which is robust and has a good kick to it. While the chilli sauce has a good depth to it, we found it a bit oily.
Teowchew Dumpling 4.5/5
However, the real highlight at Boat Quay (Original) Mushroom Noodle is their homemade Teochew Dumpling ($4/$5/$6). I ordered a bowl to the Teochew dumpling to go with my noodle. A bite into the dumpling, you will get a burst of flavours in the minced pork filling accentuated by the tee poh in it. This is wrapped in a thin and silky soft dumpling skin. My only complain is that the Teochew dumplings were loosely wrapped and overcooked.
Overall the franchise stall has maintained the standard of the flavours and served a good bowl of noodle. However I think they need to maintain a higher standard in terms of its cooking and quality. Once standard falls, it will be hard to retain the customer base.
