One Mouth Noodle 一口麵: Handmade wanton noodles with excellent char siew in Yishun

Yishun Park Hawker Centre is one of my favourite hawker centres in Singapore, with a whole range of unique and delicious creations. If you enjoy a good bowl of wanton mee, One Mouth Noodle 一口麵 is a stall to check out when you’re in the North.

One Mouth Noodle serves bowls of wanton mee and char siew noodles. Their menu is pretty straightforward, with only 4 items: 2 noodle dishes and 2 soup dishes. You’ll easily find it when you walk into Yishun Park Hawker Centre, for it is located at the very first row of stalls.

What makes One Mouth Noodle stand out is the fact that its noodles are all handmade, as opposed to other stalls that may purchase pre-packaged noodles instead.

What I tried at One Mouth Noodle

I started off by tucking into One Mouth Noodle’s Char Siew Wanton Noodle (S$5.50 for small, S$6.50 for large), which came with noodles, BBQ pork and cooked vegetables. I opted for the S$5.50 portion, with a slightly small serving size. I got the option to choose between dry or soup, and I opted for the dry variety.

The noodles were a huge standout, and I could instantly tell that they were handmade and not store-bought. Each strand was silky and bouncy with a nice al dente texture, and none of the noodles stuck to each other. The noodles were coated in a savoury and salty sauce, with a slightly sweet element to it. The sauce nicely covered each noodle strand, making it all the more tasty.

Compared to other char siew noodles, One Mouth Noodles’ take on the dish was significantly less salty and a little more umami, which I enjoyed.

The char siew slices on top of the noodles were fantastic too. Don’t expect dry pieces of char siew with an artificial red hue that many other stalls use — One Mouth Noodles’ char siew was tender and juicy with a lovely charred flavour and a sweet caramelisation on its exterior.

The dry noodles came with a bowl of wanton soup on the side, which contained a few pieces of shrimp wantons. The wantons were silky with super fresh and juicy shrimp within, while the soup itself had a robust seafood aroma.

I must say that this might be one of the best char siew wanton noodles I’ve ever had. The only qualm I had was that the dish was not very filling, and I found myself to still be hungry even after devouring everything.

The other noodle dish on One Mouth Noodle’s menu was the Hong Kong Style Dumpling Noodle (S$5.50 for small, S$6.50 for large), topped with shrimp dumplings. Like the Char Siew Wanton Noodle, I got to pick whether I wanted the dry or soup version, and this time, I opted for soup.

The noodles in this dish were similarly bouncy with an al dente texture. However, given that they were soaked in soup, they were significantly less flavourful than the saucy version in the dry variety.

The shrimp dumplings were excellent. Each dumpling contained generous pieces of super juicy shrimp that burst in my mouth when I bit into them. The skin of the dumplings were also silky and gelatinous.

The soup was milder in flavour compared to the bowl of soup served with the dry Char Siew Wanton Noodle, probably because of the addition of the starchy noodles. It was still not to salty and pretty tasty.

Between the dry and soup versions of the 2 dishes offered at One Mouth Noodle, I would definitely recommend going for the dry versions instead — they were much more flavourful, and given that you also get a bowl of wanton soup at the side, you won’t miss out on enjoying some comforting soup.

Final thoughts

I was impressed with my meal at One Mouth Noodle, and I would most certainly return again in the future. My positive experience simply further emphasised my love for Yishun Park Hawker Centre — so far, I haven’t been let down by any stall there.

True to its name, though, One Mouth Noodle’s smaller portions can practically be devoured in just 1 mouthful. Despite that, I can understand the steeper prices, given how the quality of the food exceeded that of most other wanton mee shops I’ve visited.
