Deep flavoured, 30mins long queue, full belly, satisfied. That is what you get at De Ji Cooked Food’s sheng mian soup noodles. At $3.50 for a small bowl, it really ain’t that small. It was packed to the brim, full of ingredients and piping hot full flavoured soup.
It had marinated pork slices, marinated yummy yummy minced pork, fish cakes, fish balls, pork liver. Listing them out now makes us thought of the yumminess all these goodies tasted.
It was difficult not to notice how slow the queue was moving though. Were customers ordering in bulk? Were the stall people moving slowly? None of these reasons.
It was actually the process of creating the orders. Each bowl was made individually. The man cooking was placing broth after broth into a hot over a blazing hot stove, adding each ingredients individually into the pot for each order. Each bowl took about approximately 2 ~3 minutes. We are not questioning their process, but they sure make awesome bowl of noodles!
They do offer dry or soup versions. Frankly, the dry noodles just ain’t worth it. The sauce base was less than decent. The star is still the deep flavoured soup. Nothing special about the dry version. So if you happen to have 30 minutes to spare around Ang Mo Kio area, do give them a try. You will not be dissapointed.
