TamJai SamGor Mixian (譚仔三哥), Chinatown Point

TamJai SamGor Mixian (譚仔三哥), cross bridge noodles (过桥米线)

We went over to TamJai SamGor (譚仔三哥) for their soup noodles again. This visit was at their shop at Chinatown Point (#01-01 Chinatown Point, 133 New Bridge Road, tel : +65 6223 1167 ). I just noticed that they mentioned their rice noodles were from Yunnan but these guys are a chain from Hong King. The marketing in this shop is clearly local so....the feel was kinda rojak. 😬

Anyways, I figured out how to interpret their spiciness meter. I was previously baffled by the numbers in those ratings but those numbers only indicated the amount of 小 before the 辣. Halfway up the spice meter (50% mark) the last time simply got me to 小小小辣. Today was a bowl of 过桥米线 with mala broth at 小辣 (70% mark).

I could taste that the heat was revved up. While it was bearable heat, one doesn't want to choke on this stuff. The appeal of their 过桥米线 was variety for their toppings so it works for people who want a bit of everything. I'll stick to their regular bowls the next time. I got the impression that the only thing that voluminous in the boat shaped bowl was the soup.

Today's noodles came with their pickled vegetables and a nutty minced meat dip. Both were nice. The former was especially good pairing with the slices of meat.
