Tai Wah pork noodles @ Singapore Food Trail

tai wah pork noodles

Singapore Food Trail is located below the Singapore Flyer and aims to bring all the best hawker food in Singapore to one place. It’s kinda like the Lot 10 food court in KL – the crème de la crème of hawker food all represented in a single place.

The setup in Singapore Food Trail has a lot of paraphernalia from the good ol’ days to better set the ambiance. There’s also an al fresco area for those who prefers to eat their food in a more authentic setting.

I was pretty parched when I got there so I ordered a Bird’s Nest Drink for SGD 2.50. You can have it hot or cold and the large one comes in that huge tin mug your grandma drinks tea out of (or at least my grandma did) so it’s a pretty generous serving.

There’s a lot of tempting food around but I settled on High Street Tai Wah Pork Noodle. It has the longest queue of all the stalls and I reckon that if it’s so popular, I might as well try it. The people in front of me all ordered the pork noodle with broth (SGD 5) which is their flagship dish.

I’m not a big fan of soup dishes though so I went with the dry option. I also upsized it to medium for SGD 7. The dry pork noodle is exactly the same as the one with broth, except they seperate the soup into another bowl so it doesn’t saturate the noodles.

The Tai Wah pork noodle broth is really something to behold. You can see the quality of the soup with your naked eye – it takes a lot of boiling to get the marrow and nice bits out of pork bones and it makes the soup really good. I wished I had ordered the regular version, I wanted more of the soup.

The pork noodles is awesome too – it has most parts of the pig inside it and the noodles are nicely flavored with a slightly spicy sauce. There’s pork wantons, pork belly, pork meat balls, pork liver and even a sprinkling of dried cuttlefish. The dried cuttlefish is ingenious – it adds texture and flavor as well as a break from all the porcine goodness in the noodles.

It’s goes very well with a cold Tiger on a hot Singaporean afternoon. Gotta drink the local suds when you’re there. :)

    • I know! The bowl makes the portion looks small.

      I think they ran out of medium bowls and gave me the SGD 9 bowls coz the SGD 5 bowls of the people in front of me fits rather well! :)

  1. HB, the guys and I wonder if that dish is spicy. It look so interesting with pig organs in it. Being Chinese we do like this kind of stuff but have to go to Asia to try it. No where in San Francisco make it.

    • Hello Vickie!

      Nope, it’s not spicy at all. :)

      Yeah, the pig organs is what makes it so good – there’s a lot of pork products inside. :D

    • Hey thanks for that bro!

      It sure is nice to have a personal editor.

      Keep up the great work! :D

      Seriously, much appreciated.

    • Yeah, those are excellent pork noodles Mei. :)

      I totally agree, most hawker food goes very well with a cold one.

      Come to think of it, I’m also hungry now. Had a really early dinner. :x

    • Enjoy your trip Alycia! :)

      I’m heading down to Singapore myself later this month.

      There’s lots of good food to be found at Singapore Food Trail. I love the pork noodles.

  2. Greetings from the U.S.A…that looks good! Haven’t tried Tiger beer yet, but luckily I can get it near Baltimore where I live. Will have to go to New York city for decent Singaporean food, however.

    Great blog, btw.

    Cheers

  3. I was there 2 weeks ago for the Flyer and walked 1 round deciding to eat there or not.. Ended up in Clark Quay instead. It didnt look that appetizing to me. Maybe its the too blardy warm weather.. ><

  4. Normally I don’t learn post on blogs, even so I wish to say that this write-up quite pressured me to try and do it! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you, quite wonderful post. 317284
