Bugis Junction Food Trail 2013: Honguo (红锅)

Located at basement of Bugis Junction, with red and black as its predominant colours.

They have quite a variety of drinks available. For thirst-quencher, the lychee with aloe and wolfberries was nice. The sour plum drink, will get conversations going with its unique taste that's reminiscent of those plum that one takes after drinking bitter medicine.

Honguo's star item, the legendary "Cross Bridge Vermicelli". Basically a big bowl of hot soup, and all ingredients of the noodle dish served in small plates. Like a soup noodle, waiting to be constructed.

Surprisingly, the soup wasn't as oily as initially thought. The noodles is thick beehoon variant and the soup was comforting.

XO Fried Seafood Noodles (XO酱干炒海鲜面 ) @$8.80++
Lotus Leaf XO Seafood Fried Rice (荷叶XO酱海鲜炒饭 ) @$8.80++

Liked the seafood fried rice very much. Fragrant (from XO sauce), loaded with ingredients like squids and prawns and basically yums. A little spicy.

Here are some of the other side dishes that we sampled:

Sze Chuan Chicken in Basket四川辣子鸡 -(@$7.50++)
Minced Pork Lettuce Wrap生菜猪肉碎 (@$6.80++)
Pumpkin Fries with Salted Egg Yolk黄金万两 (@$6.80++)

Quite liked the Sze Chuan Chicken. Spice level was moderate. Definitely need a cold drink to cool off thereafter. Not sure why, but the pumpkin fries tasted like sweet potato though...
