Lam's Abalone Noodle Restaurant, Singapore

Lam's Abalone Noodle

We were out at Marina Square's food court tonight and I wasn't sure of what to eat. After making a full scan of all of the stalls, this one seemed the most unique, claiming a long history of making this abalone noodle dish (6 Raffles Boulevard #04-102C, 6336-0848).

Despite the name, it turned out that the only abalone in this thing were a few small pieces shoved onto that skewer and covered in a goopy sauce. It wasn't anything special, thus leaving the remainder which ended up being just your everyday Teochew noodles. Actually, they did a decent job with the firm noodles, pork lard, and dried fish (so much that I would eat it again), but it still lacked those stanky meatballs that Tai Wah is so good at.

Now that I've looked it up, these guys claim to be the inventor of mini wok noodles. Really? OK next time we're there, I'm gonna give it a try to see what the original version is like.
