All You Can Eat Brunch @ Mean Noodles

Tucked away in an alley behind Wing Lok Street in Sheung Wan, Mean Noodles is a newly opened noodle place specialised in serving some Malaysian hawker dishes. The vintage setting catches my eye with a stunning design.

The Saturday brunch includes all-you-can-eat appetisers and drinks plus a choice of noodle per person. Started with a combination of Gado gado, aka Indo peanut salad, Vietnamese deep fried tofu salad, crispy laksa battered chicken wings and Thai herbed baby octopus.

Coming next is the thick-cut sweet potato fries served with an incredibly addicting Belacan-Aioli.

My friends and I each get a bowl of noodle. Such as a signature Nyonya Laksa, it has an aromatic soup base made with chicken broth, a mix of herbs and with a significant coconut milk aftertaste. I loved the richness and creaminess while it is also made with two kinds of noodles (i.e. rice noodle and egg noodle).

Another two would be a popular Char Kuey Teow with a strong spiciness and flavor; the char siu lou meen is also impressive because the slow-cooked pork has been sous vide for eight hours which makes it incredibly tender!

Finally, we end with a pandan flan for dessert, which has an intense coconut/pandan flavor. Thumbs up (Y)
