Rickshaw Noodles.


Had the chance to try out a special meal known as the Rickshaw noodles or La Che Mian (Mandarin) or Kan Chia Mee (Hokkien) means the “pull-vehicle-noodles.

These set of dishes originated for the Rickshaw pullers in the 1940s. Because they don’t make much in those days, these was what they could only afford. Small dishes meant fewer variety which ultimately means affordability for them.

As I was alone, I had the Vermicelli and the Noodle/Rice Noodle but not the Yellow Noodle variant. Also ordered an assortment of fried stuff, namely the Bean curd, fish cake and the Luncheon Meat.

All these for a princely sum of S$4.10 (about US$2.50). Seriously, its really affordable.

The noodle/rice noodle was really very good, but the Vermicelli wasn’t great. Too peppery for my liking.

The fried stuff was very good, but unfortunately the chilli was awful. The sauce was bitter and not as fragrant as the common Prawn Fritters kind.

Overall, a great meal and an affordable one too.

Here’s more write up on it.
