I’m really making my runs at Amoy Street Food Centre since it’s a five stone’s throw away from my mum’s office. Taking advantage of the fact that we were there before the lunch crowd (does a victory dance), I gamely marched right up to Tai Seng Noodle House (Amoy Street Food Centre, #02-123) to stake my claim on these unchartered territories.
$4 fetched us a substantial plate of char siew and fried wanton noodles ad well as a bowl of wanton (there were about 5 or 6 wantons?) soup. An additional dollar scored us a piece of their signature pork rib and tau pok. By default, it comes with mee kia but I’m a mee pok person and were mighty pleased with those noodles that had bite to them.
To be honest, the char siew and wantons were ordinary, the pork ribs were great though I felt slightly short-changed but there was just something about this dish that felt very wholesome and feel-good.
Perhaps it was the super sweet uncle / helper or the equally sweet satisfaction that I had enjoyed a plate of noodles without having to suffer the usual snaking queue. Whatever it is, I can’t wait to have it again!
