Lucky Wanton Noodle (好彩云吞面) - Attack Their Char Siew!! @ Tanjong Pagar Plaza Food Centre [Singapore]

The rare outing on a public holiday for a homely person was sufficient reason for a good meal and i can only think of Tendon Ginza Itsuki as we had to drop at Tanjong Pagar MRT station.

Luck wasn't on our side as the queue for their mouthwatering tendon was easily over twenty persons and there's no way my tummy can endure what seemed to be a wait of at least an hour! Hence, we proceeded to the Tanjong Pagar Plaza hawker centre right across the road! 

Amusingly, we were more willing to join the queue at Lucky Wanton Noodle stall! To be fair, the queue was much shorter than Ginza Itsuki and at Singaporeans' favourite dine-out place, the queue is often a pretty accurate judgment for good food. 

Furthermore, i didn't have to queue (Alex did the job) and this was served to me around twenty minutes later. With the amount of glazed char siew on the noodles, i thought this was an amazing deal for S$3; only to know shortly after that Alex decided to order S$4 as he was famished and assumed i felt the same way too.

In wanton noodle, it's always good to talk about the wantons first as it lent its name to the dish. Soup was bland and while the wantons were the usual tiny size, they tasted not too bad with bits of prawns mixed into the pork filling.

Char siew were as nice as they looked; each slice was juicy, tender with an irresistible layer of fat and utterly soaked in the delicious marination that made it way better than char siew served in most roasted delight stalls. Purely for the char siew, i am not blaming Alex for ordering the bigger portion. 

Drenched in dark sauce; the noodles were a big disappointment as they were dry and tasted bland even with the sauce. It didn't help that that's a huge serving for S$4 and i am not one to waste money (as mentioned, Alex queued. My role was to pay for the food).

Things got better and way more palatable with green chilli!
