I found myself heading to the parents' favourite hang out for ban mian one day because Lorong 32 was closed (why so suay!). Nested in the top floor food court and the only stall that has neverending orders, I made mine all in 5 minutes but definitely waited more than 15 for the food to be cooked.

Strangely, my side orders arrived first. Fried till so crisp, these ngor hiangs were closer to chips than meat rolls.

And a barely better popiah roll.

These were missing out on prawn and hae bee, and mostly filled with turnip which rendered it too sweet.

When faced with a choice of dry or soup, I always cave into dry. My bowl came with a dash of sweet sauce, a handful of handmade noodles, ikan bilis, prawns, minced meat and some greens.

This is what tossing together gets you. A black delicious mess.

I loved the springy noodles and ingredients but the same grouse stayed - too sweet and the spiciness was not able to camouflage any of the sweetness.

Turns out the soup version is still better!

Slurpworthy noodles and that tasty broth somehow makes up for all the dissatisfaction from the dry version. Plus, it comes with such thick fish slices!


All for $4.50 and between dry and soup, soup trumps here!
