L32 Handmade Noodle

Our planned trip to Geylang was actually to revisit Sean Kee (Sia Kee) for its braised duck rice as the last round we did not really sit down and dine there. Unfortunately when we finally got our luck for a parking lot, braised duck was sold out. Imagine the trip all the way from the West to hear that...

Nevertheless, I remember that we still have a place yet to explore and that's the raved handmade noodle that I saw from my Instagram few weeks back. We went back to the parking lot and shifted our car towards Lorong 32. Even finding parking lot in Geylang at mid afternoon is an issue. Awww.

"2 bowls of handmade noodle please.", We made our order once we reached there. "You have to wait about 30 minutes." Replied the lady who was taking the orders. Since we were already there, we proceed with the wait and payment. During that 30 minutes of wait, I'm rather surprised to see queues forming at that hour. Many of them had big orders in packs of 8 and 10. Not to exaggerate but there were people coming from Taxi just to enjoy the bowl of noodle.

L32 Handmade Noodle is just another stall located in a Coffeeshop. There are 9 kinds of Handmade Noodle on the menu to choose from and perhaps the most uncommon one is to have fish head added. For those who love to have Sze Chuan Vegetables on their bowl of noodle, you may add them at additional dollar.

Bowls of noodles finally arrived and it's all worth the wait. I used to enjoy a bowl of handmade noodle from Clementi Central with my classmates during Secondary School days and had never had similar handmade noodles when they closed. The taste of these handmade noodles from L32 gave me a good flashback into the teenage days.

Broth was light yet scrumptious to the plattee. Egg whites were seen all over in the soup with lean meat and minced pork paired with the handmade "you mian" was all I had never expected. Crunchy fried Ikan Billis together with vegetables were added too. Chilli was as good, dabbed the meat onto it or even have it poured into the bowl of handmade noodle to enjoy it at its best.

Mee Hoon Kway was not too thick and texture was just of the right proportion. Tasted as good as the original one in Pork. The only difference was that clams were added here and the sight of egg included was more distinctive here.

I went back again few weeks later to reminisce the old school days flavour and had ordered my portion with sliced fish. It was my first time having such combination and I was pretty happy about it. Fish was chunky and fresh. I'm looking forward to have them again.

We also ordered the dry version to get a taste of it. It came with a separate bowl of soup filled with cooked egg whites.

We had mixed the black sauce evenly among the noodles. I will be caught in between if you were to ask if the dry or soup version is good. I think both are good!

It did really have those "back to the old school" days taste and I dont mind coming back occasionally for its handmade noodle. The only troubling part was the wait - carpark lots and bowl of noodles.
