China Whampoa Home Made Noodles came up most highly recommended among many DFD’s readers.
Founded in 1989 by owner Ah Bee, aged 48, and his 42-year-old wife Ah Chiam, China Whampoa Home Made Noodles is easily one of Singapore’s most popular ban mian stall.
Other than its original outlet at Whampoa Makan Place, it has also opened at Geylang Lor 12 (Nam Wah Coffeeshop) which is operating 24/7 (Ban Mian for supper!), and 2 Bukit Merah ABC coffeeshop which is opposite ABC Brickworks Food Centre.
The hawkers make their noodles within the stall in little batches, with a range of delicious ingredients like fish slices, clams, abalone or prawns.
It is then added to the light and clear broth with mani cai to give it a tangible sweetness.
The stock here is cooked with low fire, using dried ikan bilis and soybeans instead of pork bones that would otherwise make the soup too oily.
Also don’t forget about the delicious chilli sauces.
