Rickshaw noodle is the staple of the poor in the early days of Singapore. As its name suggest, it is so called because it was the popular food of rickshaw pullers half a century ago. The noodles are cheap and consist of variety of vegetables, meat and noodles cooked in a big pot. Today, it is rarely found in the rich metropolis in Singapore but it represents a past of which our island state is built upon.While it's not the most presentable looking dish around, it is wholesome goodness in a pot. When I first chanced upon the China Street Rickshaw Noodles stall at Maxwell Market, I was rather taken aback. The noodles look rather dubious. It was ran by little old ladies who may not look like the best chefs on earth.But as the saying goes, do not judge a book by its covers. This is one of the best breakfast places and comfort food that I have ever eaten. Once tried, forever hooked! I am only glad I work near it and it's the best breakfast every day. The stall only opens in the morning and sells out just as lunch starts. It is also closed every Friday.The Rickshaw Noodles comes in 2 options - mee sua and broad yellow noodles. My personal favourite is the mee sua and it's just 70 cents a bowl! Yes, just 70 cents! On top of that, you can pick a variety of ingredients to eat with your noodles, from deep fried tofu, mini spring rolls and ngoh hiong amongst others. You could also order a small plate of fried bee hoon to go along with your mee sua soup and dishes. And all that cost nothing over $2! Where can you still find that in CBD? The tradition of cheap wholesome stomach filling food still continues today.Unfortunately, as the auntie at the stall complained randomly to me one day, young people these days seems not be able to look past its simple facade and unpresentable food. Well, I too was one of them and I never looked back once I tried it! This is old school flavour that deserves to be savoured! I hope that the stall can continue to sustain in this age of rapid changes. Let's hope it doesn't disappear anytime soon! continue reading
