yeah..the long q really puts me off. island so while I was queuing for a bowl of noodles, I stand there and see how they cook it..! coffee Mr. Green I actually saw that the chicken was cooked separately like the way we cook chicken rice chicken..then the chicken was hung up to drain away excess liquid and oil. when someone orders the food, the chicken is chopped and added in the hot gravy to 'marinate' for a while then added onto the noodles and served Razz

Wow... this looks really good.
Is Hong Lim the one in people's park. I know the curry noodles there is very good.

Gina, if I don't want to use dried chilli to make the chilli paste, can i substitute it with fresh Chili instead? How much fresh chilli = 100 g dried chilli?

Thank you... i really want to try this noodle soon.

Hi Gina
Tried your chicken curry noodle soup today & loved it! Since i didn't have the fish balls on hand, i just pan fried a handful of marinated ( with the ground paste) prawns & fish fillets & added them to the soup! Thank you for sharing the recipe Very Happy
