Dumpling Noodles


Liang Kee Ban Mian, Sims Vista Market & Food Centre

It was only in recent years that I started exploring the noodle circuit more. In the past, aside from visiting my usual noodle stalls, I was almost never willing to give others a go. Blame laziness and a sentimental fondness for routine.

Then I found a job.

Unless you brown-bag your lunch, where you eat is mostly determined by where you work. Give it a week or two, maybe a month; you probably would’ve explored most food places within a 3 mile radius of your workplace. It’s been a good number of years and work has placed me in different parts of Singapore and taken me to many other countries around Asia. Pho from a roadside stall along Bui Vien, mie kocok from the back alleys of Bandung, wonton noodles from a pushcart along Sukhumvit… I’ve had pretty decent luck expanding my noodle horizons.

As for this bowl of dumpling noodles, it wasn’t too enjoyable. Too much vinegar was added to the mix, the egg was poorly done, and it was rather soupy for a bowl of dry noodles. It just wasn’t as good as the first time I had it a week after my office shifted to Aljunied. Oh well. You win some, you lose some. Till the next noodle adventure beckons.
