This little unassuming restaurant tucked away at the back of Centrepoint (opposite Prima Taste) boasts a consultant chef who used to be executive chef at the famous Mak's Noodles in Hong Kong.
Mak's Noodle's is known for their springy egg noodles, so of course we ordered various versions. I had the wonton noodle soup, and A had the dry char siew noodle.
Both were a pleasant surprise. The taste and texture of the noodles were excellent - thinly delicate, springy and eggy without any obvious alkalinity. The shrimp wontons were good too, as was the char siew, but they really just worked to highlight the noodles.
Portions are tiny, especially the wonton noodle soup, so go ahead - have seconds. We did.
I used to love places like this when I was growing up. So it's no surprise that I love this place. Win!
