Ban Mian is easily found in Singapore. Although, it is origin is not from this land, perhaps from Taiwan, but our locals really love this dish. Nowadays, it has become the part of our food culture as well.
If you heading to the Foodclique or any other food centre, there might be tons of food to be tasted but only 2 or 3 of them is worth a visit. Ban Mian is one of the best decision that you ever made. Offering 6 types of menu daily, each of you might find anything that you like. Dry Ban Mian, Empress Chicken or even Tom Yam Noodle is all available here. Let's take a peek! :)
Nestled in Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) block A level 3, Ban Mian draws a very long queue during meal time. The auntie who are operating this noodle kiosk since the beginning just completely humble and double check your order. Since it comes in a self-service system, feel free to take a petite bowl of chili, garlic, or soy sauce.
Start with the winning dish called Zzangmian with Fried Fish (S$ 5.80). Featuring a nicely cooked thick noodle with fried shallots and fresh cucumber, bathed in minced meat sauce and served with fish nuggets. It's smooth, juicy, and flavourful. The perfect texture of that noodle will be caught you addicted to it while that fish nugget is simply crispy and tender. Might be the main reason why I review this place.
Still, on the dry noodle, Kuo Tie Ban Mian (S$ 4.80) is also delicious. The noodle is just similar to the previous menu, but that additional kuo tie is ridiculously good. A nicely handmade Chinese dumpling got a very thin skin and juicy mixture at the core. Just have it with a tablespoon of soy sauce and garlic for an extra flavor.
Author's favorite menu known as Empress Chicken U-Mian (S$ 4.80). A nicely cooked noodle coated in rich soy sauce served with crispy chicken tenders. When you steering that noodle, you might smell the good aroma of it together with the juiciness of that chicken. Usually, it takes a longer time to have this meal since half of the customer also love this. However, it still worth a wait.
Dry noodle is my favorite, but some of you might prefer the Ban Mian Soup (S$ 4.00) version which is much more light than what I expected. That noodle hit the spotlight with smooth yet silky texture to it. I found the broth is not too strong in flavor but completely comforting and soothing. With extra poached egg on top, this menu seems to be the best-selling item so far.
Ban Mian at Foodclique SIM is a great destination to have an affordable dry or soup version of handmade noodle. All menu made fresh daily and none of them taste disappointing. I just want you to pay more attention to the dry version because it is more delicious and well presented.
