We are going to let you in on a secret which blogshop owners may not want you to know. You think you are getting a great bargain buying your clothes online from blogshops? The secret is that you can probably get the same stuff at City Plaza for a fraction of the online price. You see, many blogshops get their supplies from City Plaza, where there is a concentration of fashion wholesalers. However, not all those you see walking purposefully into City Plaza are there to buy clothes and fashion accessories. Many go there to eat the popular City Plaza ban mian at Poon Nah City Homemade Noodle stall.

Located at the food court of City Plaza on level 5, Poon Nah City Homemade Noodle stall offers all kinds of local delicacies –  from you tiaos and fried wantons to luncheon meat and otah. However, it is their noodles that have received rave reviews over the years.

Poon Nah Noodles Menu

Poon Nah City Homemade Noodle offers a selection of different kind of noodles – such as ban mian, bean flour noodles, bee hoon, and mee sua. There are the soup version and dry version; and you can have the noodles with prawns, pig kidney, fish head, fish maw etc. The most popular combination is apparently mee hoon kueh with abalone clam.

We went to City Plaza for lunch and ordered the Abalone Clam Mee Hoon Kueh ($4.50) and Sliced Fish Thin Noodles ($4) with a side order of Fried Wantons ($3). We paid for our food and were given a buzzer. The buzzer signaled that our food was ready about 15 minutes later.

Abalone Clam Mee Hoon Kueh

The Abalone Clam Mee Hoon Kueh had a clear broth which was flavourful. Ingredients included abalone clams, minced meat balls, mushrooms, vegetables and ikan bilis. The mee hoon hueh was soft and just a little chewy. There were lots of different textures and flavours in the bowl of noodle soup.

The sliced fish noodles essentially had the same broth and ingredients as the abalone clam noodles. The thin handmade noodles had a nice bite.

Both bowls of noodles were enjoyable. The chilli provided by was really quite spicy but would add a real kick to the noodles. Chilli lovers might become partial to Poon Nah City Homemade Noodles on account of the chilli alone.

The Fried Wantons were hot and crisp – not bad but they would not be a reason to head to City Plaza.

Poon Nah City Homemade Noodle offers unpretentious comfort food. Their bowls of noodles which look quite ordinary are enjoyable. We can understand its popularity but do not think that their ban main of one of those must try food in Singapore.

Here is another trivial about blogshop owners. They usually start off modelling their own clothes but after awhile they will get others to model the clothes they are selling on their websites. You may think that it is because they are doing well and can afford engaging professional models. Well, the truth may be that everytime they go to City Plaza to pick up supplies, they would stop by Poon Nah City Homemade Noodle stall for a bowl of noodles or two; and there is a nice desserts stall next to it too. Pure speculation on our part of course.
