Having tried many Chinese noodle restaurants in Singapore before, this is still the first time I came across this noodle house which branded themselves as “Yi Gen Mian” which means One Strand Noodle. It was also this concept that arouses my curiosity to visit Din-Gi Noodle House to try out their noodles.
As the name suggests, Yi Gen Mian is made from one very long strand of noodle – around 10 meters long. It is freshly made from flour with no MSG added. Their menu comprises of different type of noodle dishes and you can choose the type of noodle you want – One strand noodle (一根面) or knife sliced noodle (刀削面).
Beijing Minced Pork Noodle
I ordered my favorite Zha Jiang Mian with one strand noodle. The noodle is chewy, smooth and delicious. That’s the difference between freshly made noodles with ready made noodles supplied from food factories.
Chongqing Xiao Mian
Their Chongqing Xiao Mian with knife sliced noodle isn’t too bad either. But it’s still a long way to go if you compare it to the authentic Chongqing Xiao Mian from Chongqing.
Shredded Mixed Vege
The set lunch we ordered comes with two side dishes. This is shredded veg which is basically a mixture of different vegs like bean sprouts and seaweed with some Chinese spices.
I am impressed by their garlic cucumber appetizer side dish. I didn’t know that garlic can go so well with cucumber. The cucumber is crispy with a strong garlic scent. I am going to try making this on my own when I am free.
Hong You Chao Shou
Hong You Chao Shou is dumplings with chili oil. Basically the “Hong You” means red chili oil and the “Chao Shou” means dumplings. This is a popular dish that you can find in a lot of Chinese restaurants. It tasted pretty normal.
Note: Previously I visited Din-Gi Noodle House in Plaza Singapura but they seem to be closed/relocated now. Will update when I have more information.
