While the noodles are indeed robust in flavor thanks to the thick and syrupy gravy, that carries a hint of sweetness and woodiness from the XO, it is inundated in, the crackling pork belly falls flat in taste and texture. We were expecting extremely crispy and fatty chunks of pork belly that would deliciously juxtapose with the viscous texture of the noodles, but we neither experienced any crunch, not any porky flavor of the pork belly. The crackling pork belly was either missing from the dish, or it simply just did not stand out in contrast to the noodles and disappeared into it. Perhaps VLV can improve a little more on this dish so that it complements the rest of the spectacular culinary offerings on the menu.
