Hello everyone! How’ve you been? Recently, Roy and I had a major craving for boat noodles aka Kuai Tiao Ruea all thanks to the delicious ones we had in Bangkok a few months ago. Hence, we decided to google if there was any boat noodles sold in Singapore. And viola! We found one located at Golden Mile Complex, well, where else right? When we arrived at Golden Mile Complex, we had a hard time locating the shop as it was our first time there. We walked around and thought we were at the wrong building hahah. So anyway, we called them up and they said to go to “Diva” club.
We found a staircase that leads to the basement (not the carpark!) and found this gem, Noodle Cafe.
It’s a very small and cozy place. And it was full house!
Lucky us managed to get a table.
While waiting for our noodles to arrive, we were busy camwhoring away because we haven’t really been going out in a long time.
I forgot to take a picture of the menu but other than boat noodles, they also serve Ovaltine Pork rice, Braised Duck rice, Chicken Egg Noodles, etc. Okay wait, I just found their menu on their Facebook page!
There are 3 steps to ordering the boat noodles.
1) Choose the type of noodles you wish to have – Kway Tiao, Tung hoon, Glass Noodles (THIS IS THE ONE YOU SHOULD ORDER!), Egg Noodles, Mee Kia
2) Choose the meat you wish to have – Pork Ball (THIS IS GOOD!), Pork Meat, Pork Liver (great for females), Beef Ball, Beef meat, Beef Liver
3) Choose the noodles sauce base – Special Sauce (THIS IS THE ORIGINAL ONE), Tom Yum sauce, Dry noodles, Clear Soup
*The noodles are spicy there, so please opt for less spicy or no chilli (not sure if they have this option) for those who can’t take spicy stuff!*
As compared to the one I had in Bangkok, the service here was pretty slow. So I had too much time on hand to camwhore.
Oh yes I recently got my brows fixed at Benefit Brow Bar @ Ngee Ann City Sephora. Please look for Jerlyn! You can make an appointment by calling 6235 8176. SUPER SUPER LOVE JERLYN’S SKILLS! I can never let another person touch my brows the same way ever again.
And finally our first round of noodles came! The small bowl of noodles costs $1.90 while the big one is $5.00. I’d say, just go for the big one right away! Unless you’re just there to try to taste out different flavours and soup bases.
The first one we ordered was the dry version because I thought this was the one we usually have in BKK. I WAS WRONG!! T_T It was still good nonetheless but the special sauce is still the best!
And so we went for our second round of noodles. This time with the correct special sauce + less chilli!
It came with a huge portion of kang kong, one of my favourite vegetables, hehe. Roy opted for Pork Meat while I had tonnes of Pork liver. Please order the Pork ball!!!! I love it even though I usually don’t eat pork! Actually it seriously doesn’t taste like pork at all. It tastes like chicken? Idk, but it tasted the same as the pork balls I had in BKK. Major love!
And here are our empty bowls of boat noodles! Roy ate 2 big bowls + 1 small bowl while I had 1 big bowl + 1 small bowl. The bill came up to approximately $21.00. For BKK standards, the pricing is quite expensive because the one I had was 20baht/25baht for the small bowl? And the big bowl was around 60baht.
But I guess if you were to compare this to other eateries in Singapore (not hawker centres la of course), then the pricing is still quite ok. The workers are all Thais so it’s quite an authentic experience. Though I must say the place stinks a bit hahaha. You’ll get used to it in minutes.
Drinks wise, Roy had the Thai Ice Tea which he said was good and I opted for mineral water just in case the noodles got too spicy for me to take.
You can try this place out if you wish to have boat noodles in Singapore and won’t be going to Bangkok anytime soon!

Previously, I didn’t dare to wear trumpet dresses as I was afraid they wouldn’t look nice on me. Hehe, I was wronggggg. It’s such a flattering cut.
