Having spent most of my past 1.5 years away from home, I often faced occasions when I had strong craving for Wanton Noodles. I blame these cravings on 忠于原味Wanton Stall…
The boss and his wifey. Notice they offer 不见天叉烧 – something brought to my attention by a friend recently (despite patronizing this stall for quite some time now). 不见天叉烧 would mean “don’t see sky Cha Siew” if directly translated – the tow kay decided to call it “Premium Cha Shao” which I think is a good interpretation in this case According to the towkay neo, we need to specially request if we would like the Premium Cha Siew – otherwise, they would just give you the normal cut. 不见天叉烧 or Premium Cha Siew is taken from the underarm area of a pig (area between the pig’s shoulder and belly which would never have been exposed to sunlight) - hence, the meat is more fatty and tender….yums!!!
Needless to say, I would go for the 不见天 (Premium) version, anytime. Although more unfriendly to the waistline, I feel the extra hour in the gym is every bit worthwhile!
