Soon Ji Ban Mian is owned and founded by a young man named Shawn whose dream was to open a ban mian stall since he was a young boy. After NS, he started work at a relative’s shop at Geylang before getting his own stall at Chinatown Complex in 2015. His mother helps him out and together, they dish out hearty bowls of noodles that are made with plenty of love and passion. If you’re lucky, you can catch them when they’re making the noodles, which is a mesmerising process. Besides their fantastic food, one thing that keeps customers coming back is the cheery attitude of Shawn and his mother. They truly make you feel very welcome, giving you even more reason to patronise them!

While many people usually gravitate towards the soup version of ban mian (which Soon Ji Ban Mian also has), we found ourselves ordering the dry rendition and had absolutely no regrets. Tossed in a dark savoury sauce, the noodles had a firm, very chewy texture with plenty of bite and this paired well with the minced meat and pork slices that were in the mix. The added stalks of greens and ikan bilis also added a nice crunch to this dish, a nice contrast to the chewiness of the other components. For a little spice, you can add a dash of chilli but be warned, this chilli, while dangerously addictive, is also dangerously spicy. We were also fascinated by the provided soup made of dried small fish and pork bones that was added to a bowl containing a raw egg. The combination of the two creates a milky, streaky consistency that gives the soup a unique texture. We also like how the soup also helps to cut through the strong flavours of the ban mian and cleanses the palate for the next mouthful. While it is a seemingly simple dish, it is complexly layered, making it an underrated masterpiece that we definitely will be back for.
