If you've ever wandered the basement of The Central (at Eu Tong Seng Street above Clarke Quay MRT station), you may have encountered this corner outlet called Da Pai Dang offering Chinese-style street food. Most of the staff seem to be from Mainland China.
I took a gamble on their tender beef noodles (S$5.50). Fairly generous serving of fatty braised beef. But the noodles smelt so strongly of ammonia, like hair-dye chemicals, it was inedible. It was also too soggy.
I don't think I'll be back to try the rest.
