A Noodle Story – AWESOME Noodles at Amoy Street Food Centre (Singapore)!

A good friend introduced me to A Noodle Story at Amoy Street Food Centre recently, and I was blown away by the stall’s delicious noodles! Located on the first floor, this small stall is famous for its fusion noodles dish which seems to be a cross between Japanese Ramen and Chinese Wanton Mee; or as the owners call it, “Singapore-style Ramen”. Due to its popularity with office workers in the surrounding CBD area, there is always a long queue here during lunchtime on weekdays. I waited about 30 minutes when I went down on a Thursday afternoon, but it was well worth the wait! Continue reading

Conclusion: Wallet-Friendly Teppanyaki
This was a very filling dinner. The five plates of food below found their way into our two little stomachs within just twenty minutes.
