A noodle story, Amoy Street

A noodle story's been blogged about by many bloggers including ieat - so this is nothing new really. I was in the area (Amoy street) and I figured that it might be a good time to try this noodle place. And so off I went. As you can see, from the photo, there's a Japanese-styled half-cooked egg; there's a sous-vide pork belly; some shrimp dumplings, as well as a potato-crusted prawn. And all the noodles' at the bottom. 

The noodles are really pretty nice, I must say - very robust and tasty and doused in a pretty savoury sauce and topped with fried shallots. It's got a very savoury taste, and the noodles are of a really nice texture - very bouncy and qq. 

The pork's not too flavourful though, and there was a bit of the tendon in it which wasn't that nice to bite into. The egg was good though - good texture, although perhaps it should be soaked in mirin and shoyu more - it didn't have the rich depth of flavour that you expect from the best eggs.

Overall - a commendable effort: 7.5/10. It's an interesting mix of varied ingredients that normally won't go together. It's like wantan mee combined with ramen, sans soup of course. Interesting.
