I was in Chinatown Point a few days ago with colleagues and we went looking a place for dinner when we saw Tamjai Samgor Mixian.
The first Tamjai Samgor Mixian opened in 2008 in in Hong Kong. The combination of 3 fragrances, 3 spices, 7 taste, 8 flavors and 9 freshness has captured the heart of many in the 12 years.
Tamjai Samgor Mixian – The Food
As the name suggests, Tamjai Samgor Mixian specializes in mixian which is a type of rice noodles from Yunan Province, China.
You can create your own mixian by choosing the ingredients, soup base and spiciness.
The Herb Chicken Mid-Wings 新疆百草鸡翼 [Small S$4.80, Large S$5.80] did more to reduce my appetite than whet it. Sprinkled with a herb blend that I can’t quite figure out, the chicken wings are bland and tasteless. Avoid at all cost.
Tomato soup base with your choice of vegetables and meats is the safest best for non-spicy eaters. The tomato soup is sweet, tangy and appetizing as promised.
This is the infamous Hell Fire soup base. Somehow it looks more yellow than the angry red color I imagined. My spicy-loving colleagues comments that it is neither very spicy nor numbing, but the aftertaste is quite strong. Try at your own peril.
