Noodle House Ken

My sister was in the Cuppage area on Saturday and I had a ramen craving. Thanks to the recommendations that I found on AromaCookery and The Travelling Hungryboy, I decided to check out the Noodle House Ken at Orchard Plaza.

We swung by about 7pm and the helpful waitress directed us to the restaurant’s air-conditioned shop unit. I would have preferred to sit at the counter but because my sister was still adjusting to the weather, we decided to take the air-conditioned seats.

There was a small selection of ramen and and some side dishes. My sister and I decided to play it safe and ordered the Tamago Ramen (Stewed Egg Ramen, $12), Cha Shiu Ramen (Sliced Pork Ramen, $12) and the Fried Gyoza (Fried Dumplings, $5).

I was in the Chinatown area for dim sum and strolled over to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Singapore City Gallery at my sister’s suggestion. I was surprised at how much fun the gallery turned out to be. The gallery featured a number of fascinating miniature cityscape models. Time flew by as we busied ourselves identifying the Lilliputian-sized landmarks.

I have always loved craft and I tip my hat to the amazing people who must have spent countless hours building the detailed scaled-down models. I had a great time at the gallery and recommend everyone to pop by at least once to check it out. Admission is free to the gallery at the URA Centre (45 Maxwell Road) and it is opened from 9am to 5pm, Mondays to Saturdays.

I had the day off on Thursday and swung by the Red Star Restaurant with my sister for an early dim sum lunch. Red Star, around since the 70s, is a perennial favourite with both the young and old. I first visited the restaurant in my college years, on a friend’s recommendation, and have been a fan ever since.

Dim sum is still served off push-cart trolleys and goes for S$3-3.50 for a plate of 3 servings (there are larger servings available). The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, and is always packed during weekends and public holidays. Although the queue can get rather long, table turnover is generally quick. That said, I do recommend going early on the weekend if you do not like to wait.
