Zhong Yu Yuan Wei Wanton Noodle (忠于原味云吞面), Tiong Bahru Market FC

This (#02-30 Tiong Bahru Market, 30 Seng Poh Road) was the popular wanton noodle shop just right next door to Koh Brothers. The reason why these guys attract a queue is because of the char siew that they serve with their wanton noodles. Specifically, it was the cut of meat that they used. Known in these parts as 不见天 or the arm pits of the pig. Leg pits would be more accurate. The Spanish call it secreto o cruceta.

The meat was coarse grained, fat laced and pretty tasty with some char and caramelization from the marinade. Noodles were well timed that they were full of bite. As a bonus, their chilli packed a bit of heat and was delicious. The irony coming from this stall was that those wantons weren't very good.
