Soya sauce chicken with barbequed pork rib noodle in Chinatown

Yes, this was from the ever esteemed Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle stall down in the food centre at Chinatown market. They had run out of char siew for the day so it was the bbq ribs on top of their tender and flavorful soya sauce chicken.

Comparing the noodles with the masters will only set one up for disappointment so I'm not going to be heading that way. What those were in fact, was pretty well done (not over or underdone), rather wiry and had some of that bite which I was looking forward to. Their chilli sauce was aromatic as well and the nicely caramelized sweet ribs were meaty to boot. If I had to gripe, it would be because they had ladled much to much liquids into a plate of dry noodles.

The queue at this stall was still healthy right in the middle of the day between lunch and dinner. Don't the people running the stall get to even rest?
