Finally Qiu Lian Ban Mian had opened a branch in the West after so many years. But the menu seem to be slightly different, this branch did not sell dry version of Ban Mian.
Nevertheless I ordered the normal Soup You Mian with minced meat at $4.50. I saw in the kitchen that the You Mian was freshly came out from the noodle machine when I ordered.
The Soup You Mian came steaming hot, the soup was too hot to eat immediately. I had to wait a few minutes to cool down before eating.
I always like Qiu Lian Ban Mian soup base. However, this branch was slightly lighter in overall taste, not as meaty sweet. Maybe I was too early in the morning, the soup broth was still cooking.
The You Mian was good. It has a slightly springy texture and there was no floury taste. I liked the minced meat ball, it was marinated with seasoning and spices. I could tasted the crushed dried fish in the minced meat ball.
I did not notice the menu board stated that adding extra ikan bilis need to pay 50 cents. I told the stall lady that I wanted more ikan bilis, luckily she did not charge me extra for it.
Overall, this Ban Mian stall has very good Ban Mian, however I felt that the prices were slightly higher than other stalls in the vincity.
