Ling Nam, Greenhills

Ling Nam is one old time noodle house fave of my family...well particularly my dad...other of which are Ma Mon Luk (tops our list) and Masuki =) I am so glad that these noodle houses have branched out to more convenient areas...like Greenhills....so now we never have to go to the original Binondo branches that are..err ...quite...not so tidy hahaha oooops...but then again that is part of the Bonondo dining experience (that's another story..so I will not delve into that). With that, Ma Mon Luk is an exception...as the branch along Quezon Avenue is, if I am not mistaken, the original!? hahaha Well, I say that since my first memory of Ma Mon Luk is at that branch and as the bowls and dining utensils show evidence of ....you be the judge.

Going back to Ling Nam, they are popular for their wontons and noodles. This is my first visit at the branch in Greenhills. This is at the Car Park building where Yellow Cab, Bangus, Max's ..etc. are situated.

We had the Wonton Noodle Soup


The wontons were just fair tasting and the noodle soup kinda lacked flavor...in my taste. If you like a clean broth taste...this is the soup for you. As for me, I like the Ma Mon Luk, Masuki kind of broth...which have that certain something-something that you can smell and taste ;p Perhaps they use a certain type of Fish sauce? ----like there's this peculiar pungency of the broth--that is quite desirable ;P hahaha I think I need a post on Ma Mon Luk and Masuki---I can't belive I don't! tsk! tsk! to moi!

The Ham Sui Kok...
Like savory, oblong butchis...filled with asado.


it was kinda oily and the asado filling was barely there!...Look at that...I don't think the filling can sum up to half a tablespoon...hahaha more meat please!

I guess I shall not find myself back here anytome soon. I miss Masuki...it's been a while! hahaha
