Eat: noodle soup

吃:汤面

Venue: Yong Fu Ban Mian stall at the coffee shop at Block 3014, Ubi Road 1

地点:永福板面,乌美1路大牌3014咖啡店

My standing order at this stall is instant noodle aka Maggi (she uses Koka actually, which I prefer, haha!) with greens and eggs only.

The beauty of the noodle soup is that it gives me a homely feel. Even without the flavours from the marinated meat (choice of pork, chicken or battered fish) and crispy anchovies, my simple bowl of noodle with just fresh greens and eggs has an unassuming sweetness that never fails to make my day. Sometimes I add a dash of pepper and bits of crispy onion when I feel like having a stronger taste.

The daily queue says it all. The boss cum chef, a cheery lady who is occasionally impatient with people who are fickle when they place their order or are inattentive when their turn comes, so decide what to order even before you join the queue, she is already working very hard by cooking with five stoves at one go.

There is a wide variety of noodles to choose from, ranging from Ban Mian (flat noodle), Mian Xian (flour vermicelli) and other types of noodles to Bee Hoon (rice vermicelli) and Mee Hoon Kueh (noodle squares). Go for Tom Yum soup if you crave for something really ooh-la-la.

Do also check out the stall’s Soup of the Day or Mixed (ingredients) Soup which are usually paired with a bowl of steamed rice.

我在这摊的“照旧”是快熟面只要蔬菜和鸡蛋,煮面的美女阿姨采用的是Koka可口牌快熟面。

吃这位阿姨煮的汤面让我有享受家常面的感觉。即使没有肉类和江鱼仔调味,我这碗简单的蔬菜鸡蛋汤面总是令我吃得开怀,乐于回味。有时候我也会加少许胡椒粉和油葱来增添滋味。

看见照片中的人龙你大概都明白了吧?美女阿姨是个直爽的人,有时她会因点面的人拿不定主意或排队的人顾着聊天却不知道轮到自己了而表露出她的“不满”。老实说,她挺有本事的,能同时用五个炉煮五碗面。

供选择的面类有好几种,例如板面、面线和幼面等等,还有米粉和面粉粿。如果你想来个热辣的体验,就点一碗东炎汤面,包你吃了面红耳赤,火热火热!

还不止这些哦,美女阿姨也会准备每日靓汤配饭,黑豆排骨汤和肉骨茶就是其中两种。你也可以试试她的杂汤配饭,顾名思义,汤内的食材和配料多不胜数;你也可以选择清汤或东炎汤。
