Hiang Ji Roasted Meat and Noodle House (Toa Payoh)

C says:

This noodle stall near the Toa Payoh HDB Hub is a tribute to lard. Besides little cubes of it in the noodles, there’s also the flavour of it permeating the noodles and adding its distinctive richness and smoothness. Lard rocks!

I ordered the soya sauce chicken noodle, A had the hor fun with cha siew and roast pork. Both were delicious, although the hor fun tends to absorb more of the oil, so you get a lot more of the lard flavour coming through. And because the hor fun is soft and smooth, I can imagine that the texture combined with the richness could get a tad jelak after a while. In contrast, the noodles are springy and eggy, so you get more texture and bite, but less of the flavour.

I can’t quite decide which is better. Though it doesn’t really matter because both are just delicious.
