While Vanessa was deciding which fruit rolls to buy from Naomi Kitchen, Kon chanced upon this long queue at the coffeeshop right next door. What surprised him was the timing; 4pm which is two hours away from the typical dinnertime!
Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles - this name rang a bell although i vaguely thought the shop is located somewhere else. Nonetheless, the numerous accolades plastered around the stall and a sign stating that it is the one and only original stall with no other outlet gave no doubt on its authenticity.
Kon, ever the adventurous foodie, deemed it necessary to order two bowls just to "try out". This kind of abrupt order frequently happens in the Gang of Four outings and fully explains why i may look slimmer at the end of the working week yet significantly prosperous-looking at the start of it.
The bowl of dry minced pork noodles belongs to the vinegarish genre - truthfully not the type i prefer. Put it simply, if i like vinegar, it's not too hard for me to buy one big bottle from NTUC and drench my noodles with them.
To be fair, the noodles were actually not too bad; slightly thicker than the normal mee kia, they were smooth enough to slide down my throat without much effort and delicious enough for me to demand for more!
