For many years, people have been chattering about this innovative “Singapore-style” ramen. What is so good about it? Do they offer exceptional good food to be given the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award (2016)? What is it about this noodle store?
Marchh was so intrigued by it that we all had to taste it for ourselves.
To start off, A Noodle Story believes in creating the best tasting food with celebrity-chef grade ingredients. Everything made is about the details, maintaining the exquisite taste of food served.
Cooking the char-siu is tedious. The cooking process requires it to be marinated and cooked for 36 hours in a water bath. Their Japanese lava eggs are bought from the same vendor as that of Gordon Ramsay. Even the prawns are wrapped with potato, deep fried to give that extra crispiness and taste. Don’t even talk about their wontons. They are drop dead delicious. A Noodle Story uses 100% Indonesian pork with shrimp for their bigger than average succulent wontons. The best thing about the noodles is that all excess water from cooking the noodles are shaken off to ensure springy, flavourful mee kia.
A Noodle Story also pays a huge amount of effort on their soup. It is not like any other “wonton-noodle” store whereby the soup is either too salty or peppery. Quoting one of Marchh staff: “Wah, the soup really nice, got abalone taste to it.”
There is nothing much to not like about A Noodle Story. However, we would not recommend you to mix too much of the sambal chili with the noodle as it could overpower the flavours of the noodles.
The cost of the noodles may be a little pricy, $7 for the small portion and $9 for the medium portion, but you pay for what you get. This is definitely worth the hype!
