Just steps away from our front door lies the immensely popular L32 Kopitiam, specialising in Ban Mian.
The place is open daily (except Mondays) from 11:30am till 10:30pm. There’s a constant queue, for good reasons!
You can choose from either flat noodles or egg noodles, and prepared either dry or with soup (the usual serving method). You then choose what meat or fish you’d like – pork, chicken, fish balls, meat balls, prawns, sliced fish, clams, or a combination. An egg is normally added to the mixture, too.
The garnishes are also super fresh, adding a special touch to your ban mian with crunchy ikan bilis (dried whole fish) and a good dose of their homemade chili sauce. The chilis for their sauce are freshly chopped daily. It’s wonderful, fresh, potent and non oily.
While the waiting time is typically 15 minutes, you’ll be rewarded with an ultra-fresh bowl of tasty handmade noodles. They charge an additional 20 cents for takeaway (mainly to defray the cost of the plastic packaging).
L32 is at the corner of Geylang Road and Lorong 32 (558 Geylang Road).
