Malan Noodle @ Bras Basah

I was pleasantly surprised to spot 马兰拉面,Malan Noodle stall as i roamed the level 1 Foodcourt of Bras Basah Complex.

The young chef was busy pulling and twisting the wheat paste into long noodles on the displayed counter while smiling and inviting us for an order with them. Pleasant.

Braised Beef Noodle ($4.50)

"Hand-pulled" noodles or "La Mian", an art of kneading, stretching and whirling wheat paste into strands of noodles is my favourite kind of Noodle.

And when an average bowl at Malan's Singapore Expo branch sets you back at least $6.50, here you are charged at a very minimum of $4.50 only :)

金虫草, Golden Chinese Caterpillar Fungus Essence Set ($6.80)

They did not actually mention Cordyceps herbs being used in this Soup dish but it kind of suggests that, right?

Anyway, the soup was rich and flavorful. Brewed together with tender Chicken drumstick, lean Pork meat and simple Chinese herbs; i do feel rejuvenate by the warm broth ;)
