Good noodles, tasty soup

Is this shop at Smith Street? Thought it is at one of the shop lots at the Food Street... The la mian was good, especially the hot and sour la mian. We also had the Shanghainese dumplings, which was very tasty with lots of soup in the dumplings (most places have very little soup). We liked those... read more

I visited this place to have their signature menu, jajangmyeon (the first one in the menu), with hand-stretched noodles. However, I am not sure if those noodles are stretched by hands. If they were, the shape of the noodles should be irregular, but they weren't. Also, the size was too small. It was the size for kids, not for adults.... More

Food is good here but not worth for the price. Before entering this eatery, my friend & I (2 pax) had just ate at the next door eatery named Holland Village XO fish... For a dish of San Lo Fish Horfun and Slice Fish XO beehoon soup, we paid only $14 net. We then head to this place to share... More

I ordered a bowl of mince noodles (S$6.80) and a fried donpline (S$8.80). However, the waitress asked me for $21.00. When I questioned it, she told me that there was 10% surcharge for eating inside and the rest were for wet towels and one pickled vegetable. I didn't want any pickled vegetable but the waitress forced me to have it.

Ever since Smith Street closed down for renovation, I've been deeply worried if Lan Zhou La Mian would still be one of its tenants. Boy am I glad it is. Yes there has been a price hike, but blame it on the increase in rental (heard from the owner that it's double now). The food does not disappoint. Till now,... More

I was a huge fan of Lan Zhou La Mian. 6 whole months of endless waiting for the renovation works to be done and I was treated to a nicely decorated, air-conditioned place with increased prices! Gone were the days where you enjoyed your meal under a cooling fan or pay nett prices. Now, 10% service charge is applicable and... More

I go here for the noodles all the time, with a side of vegetables and dumplings. They serve extraordinary handmade noodles and good dumplings. The only reason that I'm giving Lanzhou La Mian 4/5 instead of 5/5 is that they immediately give you horrible, substandard pickles and a wet towel and charge quite a fee for them - half the... More

Ordered a bowl of mince pork noodles, the portion was so small that it only occupies a quarter of the bowl. They also forced you to pay for the wet towel even when I said I don't need it. The wet towel cost double than any other restaurants in Singapore.

My favourite little hidden gem on this island! Found it entirely by accident 3 years ago and now go back regularly. Whenever I have visitors I take them here and returners always want to go again. It's not fancy (somewhere between a hawker and a restaurant) but the food is what it is all about. The noodles are top notch... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
