When others are mostly black this is actually...

red in color. So what is red in color? I'm not referring to a bowl of 'Laksa' over here (In fact 'Laksa' is more of an orangy color. lol), I'm actually referring to...

'Wanton Noodles'
This comes with a plate of Noodles topped with a variety of ingredients
and a bowl of soup. While queuing up for the food, I was examining the
stall, it seems that they are preparing and making their own 'wantons'
over here.

Probably its due to the fact that I have requested for a bit more
chilli, therefore the sauce ended up to be slightly a bit reddish in
color. But after pouring in the sliced green chillies and spending a
bit of time stirring the plate of Noodles, it's time for the fun part.

Covered in the sweet and spicy sauce, the springy texture of the thin
Noodles is a (+). Though it's covered with pretty ordinary ingredients,
but the crunchy vegetables and the thick and chewy 'Barbecued Pork'
are one of the key components that contributes that changes this into
a delicious plate of 'Wanton Noodles'.

On top of that, I loved the bowl of soup too. Not only it's sweet, it
also has the taste of spring onions too. But the best part of the bowl
of soup, would be the big and yummy 'wantons'. The stall over here has
wrapped a lump of meaty ingredients inside the 'wantons', which is
reasonably good. :) This makes me ponder how good the dumplings over
here would end up to be...

So where can you give the 'wanton Noodles' a good try?

Is this the same shop that...

used to be located in one of the coffee shops located along 'Beach Road'? One of my favorite herbal 'Bak Kut Teh' in Singapore? And there's only one way to find out...

I was comparing the photos that was taken at the place located along
'Beach Road' and this place and they look pretty similar. However,
looks can be pretty deceiving, the most important part would be the
overall taste of the dish. :P

'Bak Kut Teh'(肉骨茶)
The magical touch of the indulging great taste of the herbal
'Bak Kut Teh' do exist in this pot of boiling soup. Topped with a bit
of vegetables and loaded with lots of 'Pork Ribs', this interesting
pot of 'Bak Kut Teh' still has it's magical touch. Not only the taste
still remains to be pretty good, the fat and juicy 'Pork Ribs' are a
big (+) too. The best part would be the point where you can still go
for endless round of refills of the delicious herbal soup. However,
pretty much similar to the stall along 'Beach Road', I only go for an
extra round of soup and my whole body is actually burning up.

So where can you give the 'Herbal Soup' a good try again?
The name of this stall would be
'Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh'(梁记(巴生)肉骨茶).

Fatal camouflage...

Colors play an important role in our life. From time to time, we will be using the colors that you are getting from the dish to determine the taste of the dish. But this might be ...

a bit too hard to be accepted by average eaters. To a certain extent, the dish
has blended/camouflaged into the color of the plate. Are you sure you want to
give this dish a try?

'Mee Goreng'(Fried Noodles in Malay)
This is actually a plate of 'Mee Goreng'. This is a '3H' dish. In case you are
wondering what's a '3H', it actually means looks 'Hot~', served 'Hot~~' and
the overall taste is pretty 'Hot~~~' too. From the looks of this dish, I can
easily spot ingredients like 'peas', 'beansprouts', 'leafy vegetables', 'sliced
chilli', etc... As I dig into the dish, not only I'm getting an intense
overpowering spicy and piping hot taste, it also comes with the taste and aroma
of mutton too. Trust me, if you are not into spicy stuff, this isn't something
that you should try to toy with.

So where can you give this 'fatal' dish a good try?
The name of this stall would be 'N M Abdul Rahim'.
It's located inside 'Ayer Rajah Food Centre & Market'.

Prefer the dumplings...

I spend quite a bit of time looking for new places/stalls a good try and as you can see, most of the post would revolve around Noodles or Noodles like dishes, which is pretty much related to the post today. :)

'Wanton + Dumplings Noodles'
When I was queuing outside this stall, I was wondering what should
I order, after spending a bit of time debating in my mind, I have
pretty much decided what I'm going to do. I decided to go for a plate
of 'Wanton Noodles', topped with an extra portion of 'Dumplings'.

To some extent, I think that they can simply try selling these plates
of Noodles without the 'wantons'. For a start, the thin Noodles are
pretty springy and chewy. On top of that, soaked inside the sweet and
dark sauce makes it even better. Best of all, the generous portion
of sliced 'Barbecued Pork', vegetables and sliced green chillies are
there to enhance the overall taste of the Noodles even much more further.

The 'wantons' over here are far too disappointing. The ingredients of
the plate of Noodles are even far more better than the 'wantons'. Not
only it's kinda small, but probably it's the 'wanton' skin that are a
bit too thick. Therefore they couldn't wrap a larger lump of mixed
ingredients inside the skin. As compared to the dumplings, the 'wantons'
look kinda dull.

The dumplings on the other hand are far more interesting. Besides for
the lump of ingredients that go into the bigger skin, they have also
added the crunchy prawns inside. Though the bowl of soup is pretty
boring, but the delicious and crunchy dumplings just make the bowl of
soup too insignificant to be noticed.

So where can you give the bowl of Noodles a good try?
