Eng's Noodles House, Tanjong Katong Road

Wanton Mee

I was still a little hungry after lunch today, so we came down here (287 Tanjong Katong Road, 8688-2727) for a little more, especially since we were in the neighborhood anyway. Besides, we were looking forward to trying this potent chili sauce that we had heard about.

Now, given that this orange sauce sat in little squeeze bottles on each table, the thought of La Victoria from back home immediately came to mind. But the taste of this was completely different. It wasn't rich like La Vic's...instead, this was a simpler, straight-to-the-point spicy.

Actually, the star of this place for me wasn't the chili sauce, but rather the noodles, which were just the right texture as well as the taste. I suppose one could add those little bits of fried pork lard to give it the richness of La Vic's, but most of it was gone by the time we got there.
