Lip Sin is very famous with the Super Tanker Foodcourt. But I do not like to eat at Super Tanker Foodcourt, cos I just don't like the food there. Sometimes I was forced to lunch there as my colleagues wanted to go.

My bf created a nick for Super Tanker just for me. Super Tanker = Super Boring. No offence as it's just me who don't like the food there.

There one stall just by the roadside a little further away from Super Tanker (to Sunshine Lip Sin direction) selling thumbs up tomyam noodle.

See my bowl of red hot tomyam... The tomyam tasted spicy and sour. Good to have it on rainy days as it'll warm you up. I like the minced meat which served in the tomyam. It's marinated with the right flavour.

Koay teow teng is an alternate choice if you don't take spicy food. The soup is sweet but it is a bit oily. It's served with some fishball. This bowl has extra fishball added.

    When I think of tom yam noodle, I'll go to Lai Hoe, the stall in the wet market near Sunshine.

    Little Inbox,
    The Lai Hoe one is too spicy for me. It's too spicy that I can't taste other flavour.
