Yi Zun Beef Noodle – Now Everyone Can Enjoy Hand-Pulled La Mian!
The way noodles are made mesmerises me. Whenever I’m dining at a restaurant that serves hand-pulled noodles, I like to look into the kitchen, if possible, and watch the chefs transform a pile of dough into silky strings of noodles. It happens really quickly. The chefs divides the dough into two portions, then four, and so on, until the noodles take shape.
Located along Sam Leong Road, Yi Zun Beef Noodle is a Halal-certified restaurant that serves affordable la mian and other Chinese delicacies.
The most popular item here is the Yizun Beef Noodle (small: $7.80, large: $9.80). We had the small portion, which actually was a very large serving. The noodles come with a few slices of beef, and a generous sprinkling of spring onion and coriander. The beef slices were, unfortunately, overcooked, and were too tough. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the noodles, which were silky and smooth, and the light and savoury broth.
The restaurant also sells other Chinese dishes such as the Xinjiang Big Plate Chicken ($14.80) and Fish Stew with Pickled Cabbage ($14.80).
The Xinjiang Big Plate Chicken lived up to its name. Served in an oversized plate, the dish has both Chinese herbal flavours, and the distinct spiciness of ma la. Also known as “Da Pan Ji”, this dish is very famous in Xinjiang, a province in China.
I enjoyed the Crispy Eggplant ($8.80). Slices of deep-fried eggplant are glazed with a sweet and spicy sauce, and are studded with garlic bits. The fried eggplant was crispy, sweet, and mouth-numbingly spicy. This is definitely a great dish, but don’t have it before or during a date, as you will have garlic breath!
It’s great that more restaurants are getting halal-certified. Now, it is easier for friends of different races to dine out and enjoy a meal together. If you have Muslim friends who haven’t had a chance to try Chinese la mian, bring them to Yi Zun Beef Noodle!
