Usually no queues. Even if there was shouldn’t be more than a 10 – 15 minute wait.
This is another one of my personal favourites and I have yet to try another mince meat noodle stall which beats 58.
The serving portion ranges from 3SGD to 4SGD, I find that even the smaller portion size is generous enough.
The noodle texture is just perfect, it has that QQ texture which is unbeatable. The sauce is a right balance of spicy and sour (from the vinegar). The minced meat is not tough, but, has a good almost springy texture. The soup is quality soup! It does not taste like the usual plain diluted ‘soups’ most average stall sells, the aunty at this stall actually cooks the meat in the soup stock, so that the soup and the noodles is a perfect match. It achieves that balance which most other shops don’t.
I prefer the dry to the soup as I find that with the soup version the noodles lose their QQ texture and becomes a little too soft, and if one orders yellow noodles the soup absorbs the noodle’s flour-y flavour changing the taste of the soup.
This stall serves fresh cut chilli and additional vinegar on the side. They are also very happy to accommodate various personal preferences like no vinegar or no pig liver, just remember to tell them when you order!
I personally find that this branch is better than the branch in Taman Jurong Food Centre but I suppose that is down to person preferences.
