"Number 9" from Luu New Tung Kee Noodle

Combination Wonton Noodle (#9)

It might be odd for me to keep going all the way to the US to eat what should be commonplace in Singapore, but for some reason, the taste from these guys is just different. I can't place my finger on exactly what it is, but the noodles, broth, and pickled condiments all just come together so uniquely that I had to get this while I was here.

Anyway, this was the "Number 9" from Luu Noodle. I usually get the "Number 2" from the greater Tung Kee family of shops but wanted something a bit lighter today. OK, maybe it wasn't exactly light, as this bowl was gigantic, and I was craving those meatballs and the little bits of pork lard in there too. But it hit the spot either way.
