Noodle Place ~ 云吞面世家 ~

Was loitering around Orchard Road, and decided to search around for a dinner place. Wanted something simple and found Noodle Place. Having relocated from The Centrepoint, and then now in Orchard Gateway, the popularity does't seem to drop.

Just a street away, it doesn't make quite a difference to diners as long as the standard of the food stay status quo right?

Unlike the usual spacious Chinese restaurants, Noodle Place is not enclosed, and have limited seats. Despite that, the queue is not like queuing for lottery as the turnover is pretty high, as well as the serving time.

Located conveniently at the entrance of Orchard Gateway, or the walkway between 313 Somerset and Orchard Gateway, it shouldn't be hard to miss, with the long and black signboard. It is also opposite Smoothie King.

Noodle Place's menu is all in one page, with a wide variety of noodles, roast meat, soups, rices, wok-fried selections, sides dishes, and limited variety for desserts.

So even if you are not a big fan of noodles, you may also enjoy a simple bowl of rice with a couple of wok-fried and side dishes for a meal.

Shrimp Wanton Noodle ($8.00 for soup-based). Don't get caught by surprise, because the wantons are beneath the noodle, so do not go asking or waiting for your wantons to arrive separately.

One of the several Noodle Place signature dish, the meaty and crunchy shrimp wanton come in fours, and the noodle is springy rather than the soft and over-soaked ones. Savoury soup is another complement to the overall wanton noodle.

Fro your information, you will really hear yourself crunching away on the fresh shrimps. No joke.

Pork Ribs Hor Fun in Black Bean Sauce ($12.50). Not exactly the watery type of hor fun we have, but more like a dry version of hor fun doused with black bean sauce. Together with red & green capsicum and mushroom, it seems very much like a balanced meal. Ribs that are being chopped into smaller portions for frying is delicious, nourished with the sauce. Tender meat that you can't help licking the bones clean.

Soya Sauce Chicken ($12.00). By just looking at it, can you already feel how yummy it is?

Slight saltiness of the soya sauce drenched over the tender chicken slices, and also with a light taste of pineapple gives it a different perspective of how this dish can be presented. The combination of the roasted skin and tender meat makes it worth for another serving.

I admit Noodle Place is priced higher than what we usually have for a normal wanton noodle and such. But despite the prices, the food is worth the money, and with an array of unique dishes such as Sliced Abalone Noodle, Seven Treasures Pork Congee, Black Olive Vegetable Fried Rice with Pork Floss, Spicy & Sour Dumpling, etc., I don't mind paying more to try out these items, in view of at least the same standard with what I had before.
