In addition to Mak’s Noodle’s flagship outlet at The Centrepoint, they have now opened another outlet in the west at Westgate. This noodles chain has been serving their legendary wonton noodles since 1920, and now with their second branch in Singapore, more people will get to try their dishes. Also, in order to main food standards, their ingredients are shipped directly from the branch in Central, Hong Kong.

Tossed Noodle with Prawns & Dried Shrimp Roe ($16.20). I found this dish overpriced.

Tossed Noodle with Beef Brisket ($9). Even with the added green chilli, it could not diminish the saltiness of the noodles. However, I loved the thin and springy texture of the noodles and felt that it would fare better in soup form.

Porridge, with love

I was pretty sick yesterday so I went to the doctor. He told me my blood pressure was rather low and I have gastric. He also gave me a day’s MC to recover.

Early this morning, I remembered my mum saying something to me before she went off to work. Being still rather dazed from medication and sleep, I just nodded my head although I didn’t really catch what she was saying.

I work up at eight and walked into the hall and what do I see?

Lovingly made fish porridge from mum. She had to have woken up early to defrost the fish, slice it, cook the porridge and fry garlic bits. My mum rarely cooks due to her hectic work schedule and I’m touched she woke up early this morning just to make me breakfast.

THANK YOU, MUM!
