PORK JOWL CHAR SIEW WONTON MEE

This week, our Makan Kaki Chef Anthony Yeoh returns to recommend a lunchtime noodle treat that will surely satisfy. Morsels is known for their small plates and Omakase, but did you know they open for lunch with special noodle sets inspired by self-confessed Noodle Queen, chef-owner Petrina Loh‘s travels across Asia and her own culinary upbringing? There are 4 noodle specials on rotation currently, one per week, which cycles through – be sure you pop by to try a different one every week! Each bowl of noodles comes with an appetiser & condiments.
