Best Kept Secret : Tai Seng Noodles

Posted by Ruok On June - 12 - 2007

Its hardly July yet and I’m feeling the effects of the self-induced inflation already. If you haven’t noticed, hawker stalls have started increasing their prices around the island. My usual fish soup and rice meal now costs $3.50 instead of $3.00. That’s more than a 15% increase and my income sure hasn’t risen to anywhere close to that level.

Its times like these that a struggling actor like me is grateful for hawker stalls like Tai Seng Noodles, located on the second floor of Amoy Food Centre. Sure, the prices have also went up (they now charge $3 instead of $2.50) but they’ve also increased the ingredients inside. You now get 12 wantons instead of 10.

Best kept secret

Yup, that’s 6 fried wantons on the plate and 6 steamed ones in the soup. Plus a good helping of char siew. All this for just 3 bucks. I think you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal than this, in the heart of Shenton Way (or anywhere in Singapore for that matter). The stall also sells other variant of noodles; with pork ribs, fried fish or fried chicken. And they all come with additional helpings of wantons.

Taste wise, I’ll say its passable. I’ll have to admit I’ve tasted better. But it really does fill the stomach. I mean, good golly, I seriously have difficulty finishing the whole plate.

I shudder to think what the $4 variant comes with.
