Face to Face Noodle House, home of the original Sarawak noodles, has finally arrived in Singapore! Hailing from Malaysia with 105 years of history and 30 stores, this outlet at City Square Mall is the first store out of Malaysia and the flagship one in Singapore. Did you know that they serve more than two million bowls a year? It is no wonder, seeing that it was fully occupied at 3.30pm, when we got a seat.
If you had patronised the outlets in Malaysia, you would notice that the Face to Face Noodle House outlet here sports a new look, which is more modern. However, you can expect to taste the same authentic flavours of the noodles, this time around with a larger portion and more toppings.
The noodles are handmade daily without any preservatives. In addition to the signature Sarawak Noodles and Pan Mee, the outlet in Singapore has created two new noodles to suit the Singaporean taste buds–Curry Chicken Pan Mee and Genki Herbal Chicken Soup Pan Mee.
We started off with some snacks, from top left clockwise, Chef’s Special Fried Wanton ($4), Fried Taufu Wings ($4.50) and Bacon Cheese Balls ($5.50). My favourite among the three is of course the wings! They are marinated, deep fried and finger licking good! I recommend you skip the fried wantons if you are intending to order a bowl of noodles that come with it.
Genki Herbal Chicken Soup ($12.90). Homemade noodles in traditional herbal soup, served with chicken, enoki mushrooms and herbs. This noodles is special to Singapore and has limited servings a day.
