After visiting Sin Sing Coffee we went back to our budget hotel for a short rest and before you know it, lunchtime was upon us.
We were feeling a little tired from the exertions of this morning and rather then expend more energy looking for a place to eat, wedecided on a simple lunch at a noodle shop across and to the right of our budget hotel.

|we agree with the signboard|
|the only stall in sight|
|and made with loving hands|
This restaurant only has one stall which sells only sells 2Wantan Noodles. We were not complaining, in fact the fact that it narrows our choice to just one type of dish helped us answer the proverbial “what do we have for lunch?” question.
2a Cantonese noodle dish usually served in a hot broth, garnished with leafy vegetables, and wantan (a Cantonese word for dumpling)
|excellent almost homemade feel|
|flavoured just right|
|time to dig in|
After we had finished our meal we were left with little wonder as to why this restaurant sold only one type of dish. The Wantan Noodles were prepared with loving care and the firm, fresh and springy egg noodles was served dry with 2Char Siu. The accompanying soup with dumpling was aromatic and tasty without the usual overwhelming dose of monosodium glutamate, my pet hate and a hazard we try to avoid whenever we dine out.
2a popular way to flavour and prepare barbecued pork in Cantonese cuisine; classified as a type of siu mei (燒味), Cantonese roasted meat
This just might be our go-to restaurant for future visits to Melaka if we are not able to answer the proverbial “what do we have for lunch?” question.
