Tasty Chilli Crab Sauce ‘Flying Noodles’, Even Yummier Hor Fun At Hawker Stall In Pasir Ris
Hearty, wallet-friendly zi char dishes from Flying Dragon Noodles, a new hawker stall helmed by the former head chef of a seafood restaurant.
Insta-friendly grub isn’t confined to the realm of cafes or restaurants anymore. Nowadays, you can get it at hawker centres too. Newly-opened stall Flying Dragon Noodles is one example – it gets its name for its theatrical signature dish – gravity-defying ‘flying’ noodles, seemingly held aloft by a pair of floating chopsticks.
The stall opened on May 1 on the breezy second level of Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, home to a number of other hipster hawker joints including Nyonya Pok Pok Kay next door. It’s helmed by Penang-born James Tan (pictured above), 42, in partnership with his pal from Alor Setar, 33-year-old Aaron Tan (pictured below). Both men are now Singapore permanent residents.
James spent a decade at now-defunct Pioneer Seafood Restaurant in Jurong West as head chef before setting up Flying Dragon Noodles, which also sells zi char staples like hor fun and the ever-popular egg fried rice with pork chop apart from its dramatic-looking signature dish.
