08 Feb Bakmi Lim Noodle Project
Bakmi Lim Noodle Project is an Indonesian inspired noodle shop that specialises in handmade noodles. Their noodles are made fresh all day every day and is a legacy to their family roots.
The venue is very simple and quite small with limited seating. Their focus is more on on takeaway dining.
Chrysanthemum tea. Freshly brewed in house the tea was cool, refreshing and not overly sweet. It did well in quenching the thirst without leaving a sweet after taste on the tongue like many other drinks do.
Baos. A trio of fluffy baos filled with a choice of barbecue pork, roast pork and soy chicken topped off with thin cucumber slices, julienned pickled carrot and chopped spring onion.
Deep fried wonton filled with chicken and prawn. The wonton wrapper was crispy and crunchy while the meat filling was perfectly seasoned.
Boiled wonton filled with chicken and prawn. The soup was light and delicately sweet. The wonton wrapper was soft and silky while the meat inside was moist.
Beef meatballs. The meatballs were hearty with a slight chewy texture.
Combination pork noodles. Spinach infused noodles with a combination of roast pork and barbecue pork, choy sum, spring onion and garnished with a crispy wonton and fried shallots. The noodles were a unique vibrant green colour. The roast pork had a delightfully crunchy crackling and the barbecued pork was succulent with a subtle sweetness. The choy sum added freshness and balanced out the heaviness of the meat. I found the noodles were a little dry for my liking and would have preferred more sauce to add more lubrication.
Bakmi Lim Noodle Project has a very small and limited menu but the food is great when you want a hearty and satisfying meal. Everything is made from scratch with passion, dedication and love.
