The flavours from the homemade rempah is just incredibly fragrant and adds oomph to the whole dish altogether. The fresh ingredients (I.e. Fresh prawns) gave it a thoughtful touch.
You guys need to check this place out.
If you're look for something to spice up your week, you can trust this Dry Laksa from @nownoodles to do the job. Their homemade rempah doesn't let up and hits you with full flavours a well made laksa should. I should also mention that their prawns are bought fresh daily and not the frozen kind.
Now Noodles+ is located at square 2. The mee tai mak is well-cooked but i felt that the spiciness is too overpowering. It is like all i'm tasting is the chili. It does provide that extra kick for chili lovers but it's a no-no for me as i can't handle food that is too spicy! And it tastes the same with or without the century egg. lol It is also super overpriced at $9.80. They also offer dry mee siam, vegetarian mee goreng and heng hwa noodle soup at the same price.
Unfortunately, costing $9.80 a plate, the portion was really small and presentation disappointing. The dish is spicy, but the taste of the dish was overall flat and sadly not satisfying. Major sigh.
Get the dry mee siam (so good) instead, or if laksa is more your thing, the dry laksa at Violet Oon Singapore still wins hands down. Points given for using fresh, non-frozen prawns tho. #burpple
Mee Tai Mak with Century Egg ($9.80)
Exceedingly excited seeing one of my favourite ingredients Century Egg 😍 on the menu of newly open @nownoodles . Mee Tai Mak arrived smelling simply heavenly. The rempah used is housemade and was at just the level of spiciness I like for the kick! Overall, flavour was really good. Will definitely also want to try their dry laksa next😋!
Now, this was the last to arrive, and was undisputedly the best of the lot. Like the feisty yet charming sister of the robust Dry Laksa, this Dry Mee Siam instantly won us over with its tangy flavours, perked up with tamarind and infused into the springy strands of beehoon. Simple, yet mouthwateringly good.
The best part of this was its flavourful rempah, packing a robustly spicy punch, but somehow let down by the limp, slightly overcooked noodles, which could also have benefited from a little wok hei.

The Heng Hwa Soup Noodles was sold out when we were there at 6-ish for dinner, so we ended up ordering all three dry-style noodles, which might be an overkill, especially if you can't stomach that much spice.
This was something special; who would've thought that century egg could also work well with noodles? The creamy yolk formed the perfect foil for the chewy mee tai mak, stir-fried in a rempah redolent of spice and hae bee hiam. I liked that it carried a hint of smokiness, and had great textures and flavours from the generous smattering of ingredients – squid, mushrooms, egg, and spring onion.
This new noodle shop at Square 2 in Novena is high on the radar of many foodies, thanks to trending pictures of its mouth-watering Mee Tai Mak with Century Egg ($9.80) on social media. The Burpple community is raving over the dish's unmistakable wok hei, springy noodles and tasty homemade belacan. Besides this star, they also serve up several other noodle dishes (all $9.80) including Dry Mee Siam, Dry Laksa (both stir-fried with homemade rempah) and Heng Hwa Noodle Soup bathed in a gingery broth. Craving for dessert? Satisfy your sweet tooth with the Spanish Churro ($3.80). It comes with a choice of three dipping flavours — kaya, orange marmalade and milk tea. The churros are on the slightly biscuity side, but enjoyable nonetheless.
Avg Price: $10 per person

Choose between 3 dip flavours (kaya, orange marmalade and milk tea), I went for the milk tea and I really love it. It's more similar to the royal milk tea kind, not so sweet yet milky and fragrant 😌 The Churros on the other hand were rather enjoyable, it's on the biscuity side with a light crunch. The results if you made Langue De Chat biscuits into Churros 😋
Interesting, I was seated near the kitchen where I saw the chef popping their other dessert - the Malasada (round, ball looking) - into his mouth. Best thing? I spotted him squeezing extra kaya sauce onto it 😂 I would like some of that too please 🙋🏻
Loved the strong flavours from the dish, good choice of the chef to use thick bee hoon. Apart for it to make you feel like you are eating the real deal, the texture of the thick bee hoon supports the spice and flavours very well. Really my favourite out of the 2 I've tried.
The thick rice vermicelli and the rich chicken broth is slurp-worthy. Each garniture is prepared individually to retain their distinctive flavours.
NOW Noodles+ is a new eatery located at Novena, Square2. They now serve 5 different signature noodles with local flavours done in a different style.

Those silver needle noodles were a favourite for me since I was young (my grandpa makes the most amazing Mee Tai Mak that was stirred with minced meat cai por). I'm happy to say that this dish from Now Noodles + was good - the wok hei was easily detected that came with a nice amount of heat. The interesting part was the century egg, it gave it a slightly creamy feel but none of the funkiness was tasted (which was a good thing for me). Sadly, the other popular dish - the Heng Hwa Noodles ($9.80) was sold out when I was there the other day but I have been reading really good reviews on it though - will be back for their noodles 😝
