SIN: Noodle Panda

Where a panda soft toy watches over you while eating spicy food~

Noodle Panda at Bedok Point serves Sichuanese cuisine. As a panda-themed restaurant, there are a number of soft toys and decorative items for you to adore and take pictures of or with. However, it doesn't get too creative with its food and beverages.

What was my little bear doing in that stationery holder? :P

Homemade Wantons with Chili Sauce S$7.00
Taste: 8.5/10

Filled with succulent pork meat, the wantons had an enjoyably velvety texture. The chili oil was quite spicy, but not prohibitively so. The spring onions added some crunch and aroma to the dish, and so were the sesame seeds. I could certainly have more of the latter though.

Braised Pork Intestines Noodle S$8.80
Taste: 8/10

Swimming in a spicy broth that was fiery enough to make me sweat in an air-conditioned setting, the homemade noodle was delectably chewy. They weren't stingy with the amount of pork intestines, which didn't smell too strong. It'd be great if it were to come with more vegetables.

Beijing Fried Soy Sauce Noodle S$11.80
Taste: 7/10

It seems like this is the very first time I'm writing about zha jiang mian (Chinese fermented soybean paste noodle). Noodle Panda's version was flavourful, although the paste that had been stirred with ground pork could be moister. The wheat noodle was springy.

Fried Mochi with Brown Sugar S$6.80
Taste: 6/10

I didn't order a chilled dessert dish to douse the burning tongue, but going for a deep-fried rice cake. The batter was just a tad too thick, while the brown sugar sauce was somewhat too watery for my liking. I believe they were dusted with roasted soybean powder.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 7.5/10
Ambience: 7.5/10
Service: 7.5/10
Overall: 7.5/10

Pika's advice: If you happen to be around for lunch from 11.30am to 1.30pm, you may want to get the Lunch Set Menu that includes an appetiser, a bowl of noodle, a side dish and a cup of buckwheat tea. I'll post some pictures of the eatery in my travel blog tomorrow.
