While my girlfriend was trying to figure out what to fresh dish to order from Madame Nhu’s, I was looking for something a bit heartier. I happened across Makanai, tucked into the corner of Hawker lane, and found exactly what I was looking for: a giant bowl of noodle!
The food was very well presented, with a generous-looking bowl of noodles with perfectly placed toppings and quite a few pieces of vegetable tempura. The soup was light in flavour and the noodles were firm and very slurptastic. The tempura was fresh, well seasoned and crunchy. I was pretty happy with the quality and taste of the dish but couldn’t help thinking that just down the road was Marukame where I could have gotten more noodle, with the same trimmings, for 2/3’s of the price here. Next time I’ll have to try the ramen.
