It’s quiet on a Wednesday lunchtime and a few stalls are closed till the night, bonus although is getting a desk. At Kwan Noodle Bar it is all go and we’re within the temper for a noodle soup.

There’s a variety of combos obtainable on your soup alternative but it surely’s comfortable bone pork we’re after, a minimize of meat that provides you melting comfortable meat off slowly cooked bones which are extra like cartilage. The comfortable nature of the ‘bone’ signifies that give a crunch that will not crush that costly dental work, it provides to some stress and a contented quantity of textural oomph.

The broth is darkish with only a contact of star anise within the aroma.
