Noosh Halal Noodle Bar & Grill – Awesome Fusion Dishes
Situated right beside the famous Wah Kee Prawn Noodles, a Muslim-owned eatery has made its way into Singapore’s very own Durian hut – Esplanade. Noosh Halal Noodle Bar and Grill is not your typical Halal place which serves up only Nasi Goreng, Nasi Briyani and Mee Goreng. Instead, they noosh out incredible fusion food that will change what you think Halal Food encompasses.
How could we ever go wrong with Curly Fries with Bacon and Cheese ($12.90)? It tastes exactly like how you would expect it to – rich and flavourful. This dish is definitely perfect for sharing, as you might get a little sick of the flavours after a few mouthfuls.
Doesn’t a good plate of traditional Nasi Goreng make you so happy? Well, it sure makes my day. The Noosh Fried Rice ($12.90) is made complete with Chicken Floss, Sambal Belachan, Prawn Crackers and a sunny-side up. It certainly wasn’t the best of the lot, but still a commendable effort regardless.
Here comes a twist on the conventional Malay lemak chili padi (coconut-based gravy) – Smoked Duck Lemak Chili Padi Pasta ($16.90)! Warning: this is SUPER spicy, although you may request for a “less-spicy” or “non-spicy” version as well. Nevertheless, the flavours were intense, with a pronounced presence of coconut. Although the duck was a little difficult to tear apart, the meat itself was actually quite tasty and tender.
Green with envy yet? The In-House Specialty Cake changes frequently, and it turned out to be the Ondeh-Ondeh Cake ($10.90) on the night of our visit. Oh boy, we were so glad to have had a slice of this delightful cake. The fluffy, fragrant and moist sponge cake were layered with crunchy bits of gula melaka. A HUGE scoop of vanilla ice cream was served on the side as well. We couldn’t help but agree unanimously that this dessert was hands down, the winner of our meal.
We’re glad that Noosh took us by surprise with their relatively affordable yet tasty dishes in this prime area. In addition, the friendly staff and homely atmospshere made the experience all the more pleasant. We’re looking forward to our next visit already, perhaps to try out their other In-House Specialty Cakes such as the Pengat Durian Cake.
