拉面 La Mian World

the quest for the perfect noodle

After settling down in a city, one seems to stick to going to the same familiar places, sometimes even not leaving the close-by neighborhoods.  Now, one sunny day I took to the adventure of taking the MRT aaaaaaall the way out to Singapore’s East coast and went to Parkway Parade Mall.

It is not like there are no shopping centers all over the place in Singapore, but this one houses the Koo Kee Dumpling & Ramen House. The name is a bit misleading since it does not serve Japanese Ramen. In fact it features a La Mian chef pulling nice and fresh noodles. However, all their La Mian dishes are called Ramen. So I had the Seafood Fried Ramen which were very tasty, only I realised, that I am not a big fan of fried noodles any more. The only type of fried noodles that I love nowadays are the fried beef  dao xiao mian from Formosa Delight.

The second part of the name of this restaurant was also tried and tested. The Xiao Long Bao of Koo Kee are excellently juicy and tasty. More for the eye than the palate are the Four Season Dumplings, which come in a square steam basket, are square themself and feature four different toppings on a minced pork filling. Very nice to look at but a bit disappointing taste-wise.

The absolute highlight of my meal was the Spinach Beancurd with Mushrooms. It obviously did neither contain La Mian nor Dumplings but was just simply magnificently good! All in all its worth a visit to this basement eatery out in the wild East.
