拉面 La Mian World

the quest for the perfect noodle

After being closed for quite a while I was happy to find out that the great Qun Zhon Eating House in Neil Road in Singapore’s Chinatown had reopened. Passing by after a day of sightseeing with visitors I was ready for a re-fill of dumplings and noodles!

The name in Chinese changed to Jing Hua Xiao Chi I was told and they expanded to two shop house ground floors. As it used to be, the menu is not very extensive but what they serve is excellent. The xiao long bao (usually called soup dumplings in English) live up to their English name and are quite sizable, very juicy and with loads of soup inside. The pot sticker dumplings (Guo Tie) or marvellous, the Chinese Pizza crispy and the Zha Jiang Mian (noodles with minced pork and soya bean paste) also not bad. The noodles are actually not the greatest, but well, in total everything is super tasty. For desert my favorite pancakes with red bean paste are delightful as ever.

In principle the same kind of menu plus some more options is served in Hua Yi Kitchen in Orchard Road. A small and affordable place amidst the cazyness of Orchard shopping I recommend it for repeat visits as much as the Qun Zhong Eating House.
