Let the noodles lead the way...

While roaming around Singapore, you will be coming across all sorts of Noodle dishes. It can be affordable dishes like 'Fishball Noodles', everyone's favourite 'Laksa', the infamous Japanese 'Ramen', etc... But as for today, I will be introducing something that used to be pretty common in the early days of Singapore but ended up to be pretty rare in the modern Singapore. Introducing...

'Rickshaw Noodles'(拉车面)
This used to be an affordable delicacy for the rickshaw 'coolies'(pullers) back then.
At a relatively low price, they are getting a bowl of noodles that contains a
flavourful bowl of thick soup and ingredients like vegetables, fried garlic, shallots
and anchovies.

It fact, the taste of this simple bowl of Noodles kinda reminds me of the
Noodles that my mum and my grandmom used to be preparing and making ever since I
was a kid. The soup over here is pretty flavourful but since they are preparing a big
pot of Noodles at one go, therefore the texture of the Noodles are a bit soggy. But
this is the way I like it back then. As for the thick soup, though it's slightly a bit
salty but it's pretty sweet too. However, a big drawback about the Noodles over here
would be the fact that it doesn't come with the various type of fanciful ingredients.
But price wise, it's definitely one of the most affordable and relatively good Noodle
dishes out there. :D By the way, you can request for the extra scoop of chilli to be
added to the bowl of Noodles, but I personally doesn't think that it's boasting the
overall taste of the bowl of Noodles at all.

'Chee Cheong Fun'(Rice Noodle Roll)
Besides for rare delicacy 'Rickshaw Noodles', they are preparing all sorts of good
stuff that are pretty suitable for breakfast. There's economical Noodles, 'Nasi Lemak',
'Yam Cake', etc... Trust me, a good and delicious breakfast can really start your day
off right :D and happy :P. Although the texture of the 'Chee Cheong Fun' aren't silky
smooth, but the taste of it remains to be pretty good and they are pretty generous
with the portion of sauces(sweet sauce and chilli sauce) given.

The name of this stall would be 'Tao Yuan Cooked Food'(桃园熟食).
It's located inside 'Beo Crescent Market and Food Centre'.
