I Want My Noodle has a very cute Chinese name, 见面就笑. When it is literally translated into English, it means you smile when you see noodles.
An interior with much industrial theme which you can easily identify with the cement floor and some piping as decoration. The furniture aren’t fanciful, only some wooden tables and wooden chairs with metal pipe-like frame.
I Want My Noodle crafts fresh egg noodles daily and it offers only egg noodles. You won’t find any other types of noodles or rice in the restaurant. Other dishes on the menu are a salad, a meatball soup, desserts and drinks.
Once you have decided, take an order chit which can be found on every table; fill it and bring it to the cashier and made payment with only cash. And you will be served when your food is ready.
I ordered the Lor Bah Noodle, one of the popular item. The noodle is fragrant, soft with slight chewiness. It has some Lor gravy (the gravy that was used to cook the Lor Bah) mixed with the noodles and chilli as I asked for spicy and perhaps some other condiments were added too. The Lor Bah was soft and it almost melted in the mouth. Personally, I find it lacking in the Lor fragrance. The Lor didn’t penetrate into the entire piece of meat. The other popular items in I Want My Noodle are Double Roast and Aromatic Prawn Noodle.
Something I find it more interesting for drink was the Lemongrass Soda in I Want My Noodle. It was with lightly lemongrass scent and slightly sweet. It was perfect for me. And certainly refreshing
The best part of my meal was having the Sago Pudding. I was mesmerized by the goodness of the Gula Melaka. I finished every single drop of the Gula Melaka. Can I have more of the Gula Melaka the next time?! It was simply awesome.
No doubt about returning to I Want My Noodle, especially for the Gula Melaka on the Sago Pudding! And of course the noodles too.
