I very seldom hand out accolade to a single dish, especially when it pertains to just an ordinary and popular item that gets featured in almost all Chinese restaurants' menu.
However, the plate of 'Singapore style fried Rice Vermicelli' I had at Yang's yesterday evening was so surprisingly tasty, that it literally blew me away and IMO, blew all its GTA competition away as well!! That would include hole-in-the-wall, fast food/food court, wok-hay stirred fry, family and fine dining establishments. Be it Richmond Court, Gourmet Garden, Congee Queen, Fantasy Eatery, Sun Star, Maple Yip.....etc
With an over abundance of ingredients that include multiple, sweet tasting, 'jumbo' size prawns, what also set this dish apart from its competitors was how well the vermicelli was seasoned and cooked. Such perfection in execution, it will have no problem rubbing shoulders with the best of S.E.Asia, Hong Kong and China!
For sure, I will return for another plate this week!!
