It is another round of tom yum noodles but this time I choose ban mian instead. Ban mian is handmade noodles that is done through cutting it into straight strands using a wooden block as a ruler. Every strands are even in size and texture. So with the combination of the tom yum soup base and the handmade noodles (Ban Mian), it creates an unique way of eating Ban Mian rather than just serving in normal soup base. Tom yum is a typical spicy clear soup from Laos and Thailand. I do try tom yum soup
For this bowl of Tom Yum Ban Mian, the ingredients are the common ones that can be found in normal Ban Mian. There are egg, small amount of minced meat and ikan bilis, and not forgetting vegetables. Nothing special yet again. The noodles is not properly cooked as some stick together and it is hard and thick. I had a terrible time finishing the whole bowl as not to let it waste. The soup base was fine and is spicy. The vegetables are crunchy surprisingly.
It costs me $3.60 for this bowl using Kopitiam Card. Usual price at $4.50. I do need to find a good stall that sells nice Ban Mian rather than those from foodcourts.
