Taste Affair at Amoy Street Food Centre, Singapore

Sake Butter Clam Spaghettini

This hawker stall at Amoy Street Food Centre has been getting some attention because the chefs come from a small chain of casual French places in town. I've never been to one of those outlets, but I was kinda curious about this place, if anything because they were one of the few places near the office that is open early for breakfast (7 Maxwell Road #02-128).

Still, I never made it here for breakfast, and instead came here for lunch today. If I really wanted to nitpick, I could argue that the mushroom and egg in this bowl were kinda clich├ęd. I could question why the clams were seemingly treated as more of a topping rather than being done together with the noodles. I could also whine that it was just a tad heavy on the garlic.

But hey, this was only S$6 (US$4.40), which is quite a steal. More importantly, they didn't overcook the noodles here, and generally handled everything with care (reminding me a bit of Ah Bong's, actually). That means that I will be coming back, in particular to finally try their breakfast, especially since they seem to be open on Saturdays too.
