Most Singaporeans does not realise that there is another building just a few steps from Novena Square called Royal Square. It is an integrated development which houses Courtyard by Marriott, medical practices and shops.
Mademoiselle Tang Noodle 唐大小姐 is located near to the entrance of Royal Square, so you should have no problem locating it.
Mademoiselle Tang Noodle specializes in Cross-Bridge Rice Noodles, a speciality of Yunan, China. Honguo is another restaurant that specializes in this dish.
This menu can be found on Mademoiselle Tang Noodle’s Facebook Page.
Besides Cross-Bridge Rice Noodles, Mademoiselle Tang also has various other rice noodle dishes and specialty snacks.
This is the Signature Rice Noodle [S$12.90] which the restaurant is known for. 13 ingredients such as prawn, fish, ribs and a variety of vegetables are served in individual mini plates in wooden grid box. The hot soup comes in a huge bowl bigger than my face, hidden below the white plate. Add in the ingredients one by one or just throw everything in if you don’t have the patience. It is a very healthy dish, so expect it to be a little bland, which you can rectify with the condiments on the table.
It’s all about pork in Fried Pork Rice Noodle [S$10.90]. In a bowl bigger than my face, rice noodles is accompanied by bok choy, minced pork, beancurd skin, soy beans and sliced fried pork. All the other ingredients are still alright, but the fried pork’s fried skin becomes frightfully hard after being soaked in the soup for a while.
Vegetarians can order Mixed Vegetable Noodle [S$6.50] which comes with bok choy, black fungus, soy beans, beancurd skin, quill eggs and a whole lot of chives. I find it a little bland but it is definitely healthy to boot.
These Crispy Chicken [S$3.80] reminds me of McDonald’s Popcorn Chicken. The batter that coats these chicken pieces are crispy and crunchy, they make for an excellence side dish to go with a beer.
I have never had Flower Cake [S$1.90 per piece] but this is actually a specialty snack of Yunan. Rose (玫瑰花), mongolia denudata (玉兰) and chrysanthemum (菊花) are combined with flour, sugar, sesame, peanut l, walnut and dates to form a sweet flower paste. The flaky pasty and the sweet flower paste comes together perfectly together.
Bing fen 冰粉 is a popular dessert in Yunan, especially during the hot summer months. The jelly is made from a plant called nicandra physalodes. Mademoiselle Tang Noodle’s Homemade Bing Fen [S$3] is flavored with black sugar and candied flowers that gives it a gentle sweetness. The sweet and cold dessert is perfect for Singapore’s hot weather.
