The Budget Michelin Star Experience at Tai Hwa - Singapore

As I'm sure everyone has heard, two cheap-eats food stalls in Singapore has been awarded the prestigious Michelin Star! So, when I was visiting Singapore, I just had to try it. There was only time to try one of these stalls, and from what I read, the noodle stall seemed to have the shorter queue time, and that's how I decided on Tai Hwa Pork Noodle.

My family and I arrived at Tai Hwa at 11am, and as we pulled up, there was already a ridiculously long queue! In the end we waited for two whole hours! Fortunately, there was a drinks stall selling delicious and refreshing drinks to keep us all sane during the wait. 

So, how Tai Hwa works, they only sell two dishes, the pork noodle and the soup kway teow. For each dish, they have four sizes, ranging from SGD$5 to SGD$10. 

Pork Noodle (SGD$8)

Soup Kway Teow (SGD$6)

The verdict: the pork noodle was nice, but not to our taste. The noodle itself and all the toppings was tasty, but it was served with a sour vinegar sauce which was too overpowering. Also we found they were inconsistent, with some bowls being nicer with less vinegar and others the extreme opposite. I also preferred the thin noodles than the thicker noodles.

The soup kway teow was actually more enjoyable, the broth was tasty and there was no vinegar in sight! Also, for the price we thought the portion was very generous!

Overall, was it worth the wait? For the Michelin Starred novelty it was worth the wait to try, but, don't think we'd be back in a hurry.
