Nagasaki Chanpon @ Botan
Years ago, when I used to come here for lunch with TSH, the 2 of us would share a bowl of Nagasaki Chanpon and order a side dish. Yes, the portions were that huge that it could easily fill 2 ladies without the need for additional dishes. The price has not differed but the portion size seems to have shrunk. I guess inflation has finally caught up and the S$10 serving size is now equivalent in size to that of the S$8 serving size which is usually offered to ladies. Nonetheless, the soup is still very flavoursome and this feels like a wholesome one-course meal. This is a Must-Try!
When you get there, you'll also note that there is another version called the Nagasaki Sara Udon. Its essentially the same broth that has been thickened with starch to form a rich sauce for the seafood, vegetables and pork slices. The thin noodles used in this dish have been deep-fried till they're crispy before the sauce is poured over them. This dish is similar to "Sang Mien" (a Cantonese dish whereby the egg noodles have been deep-fried to form a crispy base for the thick sauce). This dish is served with some yellow mustard on the side. Unfortunately, I don't have a decent picture to show you but the next time I visit, I will definitely try to snap a better picture.
