Old Village, Tanglin Halt

Old Village, Tanglin Halt

A small section of social media is abuzz lately with mentions of this stall (#01-265, 49 Tanglin Halt Road) selling what is termed as KL styled pork noodles. Said stall is run by the guy who started Old World Bakuteh. If anyone is wondering about the address, it's in the same Peking Room coffeeshop as Tanglin Halt Roti Prata & Nasi Briyani.

Old Village, mixed pork soup

The thing to eat here is their pork soup. I got the mixed pork bowl that came with minced pork, sliced pork, pork liver, pork balls and sweet intestines. Not forgetting bits of fried pork lard (猪油渣) and some vegetables. The soup was mild and it had a layer of oil on top. I don't know if lard (猪油) has been added to that soup but I couldn't taste it.

Old Village, long beans pork belly rice

One can pick a starch of noodles or rice or long bean pork belly rice to go with the soup. This was the latter. Long beans and cabbage in the rice were pretty wilted and actually pretty sparse. There's a prominent black pepper flavour but otherwise, it tasted like a salty yam rice. Deliciously salty in my opinion. Not sure if I tasted any pork belly.

Old Village, green chilli sauce

They have a green chilli sauce. It's good. Both as a dip for the morsels of pork or on the rice. Spicy, tangy and there's some sweetness.
