During my teenage years, my father used to buy this curry pork rib noodle from Tampines Round Market for my breakfast every Sunday morning. I have been wanting to blog about it but it was either sold out or closed for holiday during the last two times when I was there.
Last weekend, I deliberately woke up early to make sure that I get to taste Xing Ji curry pork rib noodle. When I was there at 830am, there was already a long queue and I had to wait for around half an hour to get my noodles.
A bowl of curry pork rib noodle which costs $3 comes with several pieces of pork rib and potato. Soupy in consistency, the curry gravy is filled with the delightful aroma of coconut milk and a special flavour that blends very well with the ee mee (thin egg noodle). The pork ribs are remarkably fleshy, tender and tasty.
As featured on Where The Queue Starts 2, Xing Ji also has wanton noodle. But the curry pork rib noodle is one dish that is almost unique to Xing Ji and certainly worthwhile queuing up for. Be sure to go there early before it gets sold out.
