As always, no one can stop me to travel for hand-made noodle. This time it is all about Taiwanese noodle dishes that absolutely authentic and affordable, Formosa Delights. Established in 1998, this remarkable food stall has owned 15 stalls island-wide. The owner Mr. Henry Liu is a Taiwanese who aim to bring the taste of Taiwan to Singapore. And yes, his mission success now.
There are around 10 different menus available here. Ranging from a juicy plate of Gyoza to the ultimate favorite Beef Brisket Noodle is all set in tasteful settings. Headed by the local chef, each menu is made fresh upon order right in front of your eyes.
Tucked away in the Food Republic 313@Somerset exactly located beside BBQ Chicken Wing stall, this venue owns a mid-size space with open kitchen counter. There is a long queue has been formed during meal time mostly from an office worker. When you start joining the crowd, you can smell the beautiful aroma of nicely cooked noodle together with the fast cooking process.
Start with the crowd pleaser menu here called Dao Xiao Mian (S$ 6.50). A nicely cooked shaven noodle with juicy pieces of meat, bathed in rich beef broth. It's soothing, fragrant, and flavorful. I love the way that noodle soaked up the richness of that soup and become so tasty to be eaten alone. Don't be surprised if the portion is very huge.
Beef Chow Mian (S$ 6.50) is also remarkable. That sauce is the real winner here with a bit of sticky texture and quite salty. Nevertheless, that meat is also juicy and tender. Even when you touch it, it will just fall apart. Dry version is suitable for hot and sunny day.
The last thing to be ordered is Fried Dumpling (S$ 5.90 / 8 pieces). A nicely made Chinese dumpling with a juicy mixture and crispy skin. When you bite it, all of the meaty texture is there with a little bit of soft-crispy texture of that skin. Just dip it carefully to the chili sauce for an extra heat.
Formosa Delights has been awarded as the best Taiwanese noodle by my mom who ever lives in Taiwan back then. All menu is truly fantastic but still affordable. Just give it a try for the menu above for the best experience.
