A popular hotpot restaurant amongst the locals in the bustling city of Shanghai. A cosy restaurant that houses no more than 10 tables serves authentic Chongqing spicy hotpot. 

For a person who loves spicy food, the level of spiciness was beyond me. I could not take the spiciness that I had to resort to the chicken broth. The ingredients were extremely fresh and the ambience made the diner feel comfy and at home. 

My friend took me to this restaurant when I visited Shanghai.

Drown the spicy food into the sesame oil to lessen the impact in the stomach.

For two consecutive years (2016-17), Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles won a Michelin Start in Singapore. Although I am very happy about it, I am also sad because I have longer queuing time before I can eat my favourite bowl of noodles.

Loving it since it was situated at the old Marina Square Food Centre, Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles have never-ending queue lines even now. 

Deemed as one of the cheapest Michelin-starred food in Singapore, Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle's consistency in quality remains despite the longer queue lines since it received this respective accolade.

We usually order the flat egg noodles because the noodles absorb the sauce better. The springy texture makes the noodles more enjoyable. The spicy vinaigrette sauce was tangy and addictive. Before you know it, your bowl is already empty and you will be begging for me.

Beside the noodles, we also order the dumpling soup. Both noodles and dumplings were added with a secret recipe - the aromatic fried Sole Fish (鯿魚).

The same old owner who prepares the food since the Marina Square Food Centre days.
