Now Noodles +, Square 2
I guess the main reason why we headed down to Now Noodles + (#02-65 Square 2, 10 Sinaran Drive, tel : +65 6251 0177) was for their century egg mee tai mak. Mee tai mak is also known as lao shu fen in Mandarin or lou shi fun in Cantonese which translates to rat noodles or more accurately rat's tails noodles. Because they look somewhat like rat's tails. I grew up knowing them as bee chai bak. The convolutions of dialects but things are as such.
Anyways, it was ok. I've heard it being compared to the X.O. rendition that was previously served at The Canteen by Les Amis but I personally think this has got nothing on that. It's unusual for sure, didn't taste too bad but needs to cost less to convince me to come back. I think that's something missing from this bowl of rat's tail noodles. It needs a bit more salt perhaps and the flavours feel like a heap of good intention with no soul.
