Somehow, foodstalls with laminated awards splashed
Across their glassy food counters have a tendency to attract me.
I hate queues, and would rarely make a beeline for the line, and
Join the typical Singaporeans for a twenty minute wait for my meal.
But stalls with good reviews, and no lines, allure.
And so, I took my number, and sat nearby to wait.
I noticed the slogan:
"Why must queue? Grab a number."
Suddenly I felt I was visiting the doctor.
The food was ready in a jiffy.
And the verdict?
Noodles are better than Fei Fei's; not so starchy.
But the paiku noodles at Tampines is still the best!
(food-pundit neophyte musing, naturally.)
