China Whampoa Handmade Noodles and Bee Guan Coffee Stall

I would still think that this is one of the better ban mian that I have tasted so far. I haven eaten this for many times and I just don't feel sick about it. The soup of many ban mian, such as Qiu Lian Ban Mian is rather thick and that makes you full very quickly. However this only Ban Mian stall in Whampoa serves it's ban mian in light clear soup which makes you want to have more of the soup. The soup remains piping hot even if you take away.

The man in pink is the owner of the stall. He will be the one taking orders and his wife will be cooking at the back. A lot of times, the stall owners of these hawker stalls tend to get abit impatient and short tempered whenever the queue is long and customers complain about the wait. The stall owner of this ban mian stall remain calm and would apologize for the long wait (which I feel that he need not have apologize because it is not his fault for the long queue!) to this customers.

There are about different types that you can order. Prawns, Pacific Clams, Sliced Fish, Fish Maw, Pg's Kidney. They also serve different kind of noodles such as You Mian, Ban Mian, Mee Hoon Kway, Ee Mee, Bee Hoon, Cintan Mee and Mee Sua.

Be prepared to queue for at least 30 mins. We waited for about 40 mins for our bowl of you mian and ban mian.

Abalone Clams You Mian and Ban Mian

Price: $4 per bowl

The homemade chilli sauce is a MUST! Mixed it in the soup or dip it with every mouth of noodles. No matter what, the chilli is a MUST try.

While waiting for our ban mian to be ready, we saw alot of people ordering some special drinks from this very normal looking drinks stall beside the ban mian stall. The stall looks exactly like any other drinks stall in the hawker center. The stall owner was very busy making drinks, delivering them all by himself the moment that we sat down. We noticed that he was really busy for a good 30 mins without a minute of rest in between.

When I finally see that he's free, I went up to him and ask him about his special drinks. The first thing he did was to pass me this to me. So it was a printed article by ieat ishoot ipost featuring his famous orange peel and sour plum drink. It cost only $1.50 per cup. Each cup also comes together with a cup of ice water. The uncle told us that we should not stir and mix the drinks. When we have drink half a cup of it, we can pour the ice water in to mix. The taste will still be there. I did what he told me to, but I would prefer not to have pour in the water as it becomes more bland. The taste is still there but I prefer it stronger, sweeter and more sour. So if you like strong taste like I do, then try not to pour mix in the ice water.

He also sell the more concentrated version in bottle form. Uncle also told us that this can be use for about 10 cups of drinks. Each bottle cost only $3! It is very cheap!

So who says you can only order the usual can drinks, tea and coffee from the drinks stall in a hawker center. Bee Guan gives you the most thirst quenching home made drinks at only $1.50 a cup! What a creative uncle we've got here! He is also friendly and chatty all the time no matter how busy he is.
