So we hunted food again in Holland Village for dinner. This time our aim was “Noodle”. We recalled seeing a noodle sign somewhere the last time we visited and it didn’t take long for us to find it again. It was just next to Yoshimaru Ramen, which I have yet to try.
Interesting decor! And I love their logo!
On a quick look, I expected this place to be selling la mian, but it’s actually selling Ipoh hor fun. I was not really a fan of Ipoh hor fun, but hey maybe no harm trying things every now and then.
The auntie recommended us soya sauce chicken that is going at $12 a bird, which I thought was quite a bargain. But here is the thing, from the picture, I was expecting a roasted chicken, but my, I was so wrong. It’s a soya sauce chicken!
Soya sauce chicken, which tasted so-so.
I was not really in a mood for soya sauce chicken, but I was trying to eat with an open mind. The meat was tender, which is always cool by my book, but I have serious issue with the sauce. One of it was the fact that it was slightly too sweet. Another reason was because…
Kailan with oyster sauce – standard.
…our other dish, a kailan, tasted like it more or less share the same sauce with the chicken. I saw other tables ordering hor fun and noodles, seems like using the similar soya/oyster sauce mix, too.
To be fair, the food wasn’t that costly and I thought $12 for one whole chicken was pretty darn cheap. The service was good – as she cleared our table, the auntie quickly added that it was all right for us to sit around longer and just relax (we had a late dinner and the restaurant was quite deserted). Also, I love the ambiance! Maybe they just need to serve lamian *snickers*
