The Noodle Place, Orchard Gateway

Town was crazy crowded as usual on Saturday and there were queues everywhere at dinner time. We headed to Orchard Central and darted upstairs to 49 seats (because we wanted to do pasta) but the queue was frighteningly long. So we came back down and joined the much shorter queue at The Noodle Place.

The Noodle Place is known for their Cantonese style wanton and shrimp dumpling noodles as well as their roast meats. The boyfriend chose the dry wanton mee while I took the shrimp dumpling noodle in soup. We also ordered a plate of char siew to share.

Generally, the shrimp dumpling noodle in The Noodle Place reminded me of their Hong Kong counterparts. I had some of the best shrimp dumpling noodles ever in Hong Kong and they were just so fantastic! The bowl at The Noodle Place definitely paled in comparison to their Hong Kong cousins but the noodle was still rather springy and the dumplings were large and stuffed with fresh ingredients. I was also fond of the soup base!

Char siew was good, just the right amount of lean meat and marbly fats. The fats simply melted away in my mouth and was a good mix with the lean meat. Unfortunately, it was not too well-marinated though. I wanted to try their roast pork too but it was not available. Another time perhaps!

I would recommend the Noodle Place if you are craving for Cantonese style shrimp dumpling noodles or wanton noodles. Definitely more expensive than the usual food court wanton mee but still worth the price.
