Wanton Seng's Noodle Bar, Amoy Street
I've been wanting to try this (52 Amoy Street, tel : +65 6221 1336) for a while. A noodle bar that's doing things with our local wanton mee. This bowl was named twosome - to describe the roast pork belly and the char siew that came with the wanton noodles. Char siew that seemed to be made from exactly the same pork belly cuts as the roasted pork belly. Hmmm....
I liked it. This would be one of those successful
elevation updates of our local food which did not destroy what it had traditionally represented. It tasted like a nicely done bowl of wanton mee. The roast pork was tasty with crisp crackling and I think I liked the char siew a little better. Wantons were pretty decent if a little tiny. Those egg noodles were probably the best part. They had a nice bite tossed with lard and fried shallots and whatever soy/sesame sauce they were using. Too bad their "shiok" chilli sauce wasn't much to go with. I wouldn't mind trying them again for dinner.
