The Place Located at Amoy Street Food Centre, A Noodle Story is a popular stall in this CBD hawker centre famous for its modern take on Singapore style noodles. The humble stall at a corner on level one has been on the Michelin Bib Gourmand list consecutively first a few years, and offers Singapore-style ramen.
The Food Prices for the noodles start from S$9 (small), S$12 (medium) and S$16 (special). I went for the small version and the portion is just right for me. The chef uses modern European techniques to prepare the dish, hence the final output is unlike any typical noodle stall in Singapore.
The well-plated noodles is a hybrid of local prawn noodles and wanton noodles. It comes with a fried shrimp, slices of tender char siew and onsen egg inspired from Japanese cuisine, and it is accompanied by Hong Kong style dumplings. The flavour of the noodles remind me of the ones from Hong Kong tea houses, springy and very flavourful when it is tossed in the dark sauce.
Rants Expect a long queue during lunch hours and finding a table at Amoy is always a challenge during lunch time.
Will I Return Again? I have tried A Noodle Story a couple of times and despite the steep prices as compared to other hawker stalls in Amoy, there is a strong innovative take to hawker food and that is one aspect to be supportive of. The good quality of the noodles is also something which keeps me coming back whenever I am in the vicinity.
