Hwa Kee Barbeque Pork Noodles
Do you think this plate of wantan noodles is worth S$4? Well, here's my summary:
The good: Noodles still with bite, and the sauce was all right. Tasty sambal chili.
The bad: Probably my bad luck today but the char siew was in thin, dry slices, nothing like the richly glazed, deeply caramelized fatty strips hung on display. The wantans were dried out dumplings.
The ugly: styrofoam plate! So environmentally salah (wrong)!
So this is the famous Hwa Kee. I vaguely remember trying them once before the big renovation in 2003. Enjoyed them better then. Fortunately, I didn't have to queue much for it this time (past 3pm on a Sunday). Guess that's already off-peak hours or their popularity has waned.
