I was recently introduced to a Cantonese-style wonton noodle stall called Lo Chan Kee at Holland Drive Market & Food Centre. And it lives up to expectations. The noodles ($3) are springy until the last mouthful.
The chilli, while piquant and a beautiful orangey-red colour, does not overpower. The dish comes with a decent amount of leafy greens, char siew and handmade wonton.
Order a bowl of sui gao or prawn and pork dumpling soup ($3) to go with the noodles.
The dumplings have generous fillings, with chunks of prawn mixed with well-seasoned minced pork and wood-ear fungus, and boast good flavour and texture.
WHERE: Lo Chan Kee Cantonese Wanton Noodles, 02-23 Holland Drive Market & Food Centre, Block 44 Holland Drive
