There are a lot of things about visits to KL that I sorely miss—playing Mario Kart with my cousins, playing with my aunt’s pet rabbit, and digging into steaming bowls of sliced pork noodles for dinner after a badminton session in the evening. I know these things can’t come to fruition anytime soon, though one good thing about Singapore and our love for food is that you can ‘travel’ to anywhere in the world, all you need to do is find the right eatery to ‘vacation’ at. Newly opened Old Village 老村庄 in Commonwealth boasts of a variety of the sliced pork noodles I miss dearly, and judging by the snaking queues that have appeared despite its recent opening, it will certainly satisfy any nostalgic cravings.
This unassuming eatery is not to be underestimated. It might have simple and limited menu offerings, but seasoned foodies will know that this is a good sign to look out for, if any. Old Village 老村庄 has the classic Sliced Pork Noodle/Rice (S$2.50), which has been well complimented by Facebook users. They also offer Sliced Pig’s Liver Noodle/Rice (S$2.50), and Meatballs Noodle/Rice (S$2.50), affordable hearty fare that’ll make you smile and fill your stomach.
Netizens have been raving about the quality of broth, ingredients, and noodles served at Old Village 老村庄, agreeing that the long queues are warranted. For S$3, you can get Sweet Intestines Noodle/Rice, or Mixed Pork Noodle/Rice. The variety might be limited, but there will be something for everyone.
If you desperately miss a good bowl of authentic, Malaysian-style noodles, these come with crispy pork lard, and are topped with fresh-cut green chillis. Every order is served with cloudy, heavenly broth filled with chewy yellow mee pok that mixes perfectly with kway teow—truly capturing the essence of Malaysian food.
We won’t be queuing for hours at customs to get our passports stamped, but this gets pretty close, doesn’t it?
