Cold Noodles from Hometown on Smith Street

Cold Noodles with Chicken Strips

I know that here have been a ton of Sichuan places popping up in Geylang that are probably pretty good, but Hometown Restaurant in Chinatown is still one of my favorites (the new location of which is 25 Smith Street...just a few doors down from the old unit). And here were the cold noodles that I got from them today.

If it looks similar to Taiwanese Fool's Noodles, that's because it is - except that this was cold and featured a few strips of chicken on top. That made it even better for me, even if this version carried a much heavier dose of soy sauce, vinegar, and chili oil.

Sorry I had to leave this in the comments but I couldn't find a contact email anywhere on your website. Just wanted to let you know that a reader of yours nominated your blog for my 'Best of Links 2008' post.


If you have any recommendations of websites I should check out or link, let me know.

Keep up the great work.

Hey I know that you don't cook but if you ever manage to buy:

1.a bottle of chinese chilli oil, this brand called "lao gan ma", (be sure to buy the one that contains chilli and peanuts in the ingredient),

2. a bottle of chinese vinegar (jumbo brand, red cap on a small bottle)

3. light soya sauce (any brand), you can just put together the sauce yourself.

You don't actually have to use chinese noodles, substituting with Italian angel hair will ensure that you don't overcook and the noodles will come out al dente.

I came up with this recipe for my guy friends who don't cook and they found it pretty ok. Really feel like passing you some recipes, what with the varying standards one gets these days when eating out.

Looks and sounds better than the Fool's Noodles you got at Changi Airport!
