The number of times I’ve introduced myself as Singaporean and received an ecstatic “Oh, I love Singapore Noodles!” is… unfathomable.
Don’t get me wrong: I love Singapore Noodles, too. Its mild curry flavour pairs delightfully with the paper-thin vermicelli noodles, and the charred kiss of the wok takes me home in an instant.
When garnished with lime juice, it turns into a wondrous combination of savoury, smoky and tangy.
But the first I’d heard of Singapore Noodles was in Australia, not Singapore.
