Pang's Hakka Noodles @ Sprout Hub (Henderson Road) - Traditional Hakka Food By Ex-Antoinette Chef

HakkaPangStall-4

I have known Chef Pang back in the dates at Antoinette. After the closing of Antoinette, he has moved on to open Pang's Hakka Noodles, from a restaurateur to being a hawker. I recently paid a visit to his stall at Sprout Hub at Henderson Road.

Hakka Noodles with Scholar Soup 4.2/5

I had the Hakka Noodles with Scholar Soup ($5.50) which comes with a bowl of soup on the side that consists of radish, fishball, pig's liver, minced pork and pork slices. The tale has it that Hakka mothers during the ancient Qing Dynasty dish cooked the dish for their children taking the imperial exam. It even comes with three cuts of pork, symbolising the top three places in the imperial exam. The highlight to me is the noodle texture that has a delightful bite tossed in a homemade minced pork sauce, and crispy pork lards.

Hakka Red Wine Chicken Noodle Soup with Egg 4/5

On the menu, a traditional Hakka dish is the Hakka Red Wine Chicken Noodle Soup with Egg ($8). The red wine broth is not as strong, making it more drinkable. On top of the soft and silky mee sua, the bowl of slurping goodness comes with black fungus, tau kwa, tau kee, egg and chicken.

Hakka Fried Wings 4/5

To complete the meal, you can add on the Hakka Fried Wings ($4 for 2pc) marinated in fermented red beancurd. What sets the chicken wings apart is that extra crunch that is extremely crispy.

Hakka Braised Pork Rice 3.8/5

Chef Pang has also recently launched the Hakka Braised Pork Rice ($7), which comes with braised pork belly, braised tau kwa, braised egg and salted vegetable. The braised sauce is on the sweeter side, which is tasty when mixed with the fluffy white rice. I only wish the braised meat could be fatter.

I am glad to see Chef Pang holding the torch for traditional Hakka food. It is a cuisine that is not commonly available nowadays. Furthermore, the tasty food is reasonably priced, allowing more people to try traditional Hakka cuisine.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
