Forged by son, perfected by parents – the prevailing success of RedRing Treasures rides on an arsenal of secret family recipes painstakingly developed in the kitchen. Specially crafted sauces, robustly flavored cutlets and precisely engineered egg noodles all bear testament to vast efforts chanelled into shaping a culinary legacy. Evidently the public’s appetite has been whetted as huge lunch and dinner crowds often descend upon its humble stall within the Food Republic establishment at Wisma Atria shopping mall (another outlet has since opened for business at Ngee Ann City’s Takashimaya Food Village).

What knocked our socks off:

Without a shred of doubt the chicken cutlet egg noodle was THE darling among items featured in the menu. Noodles weaved from special protein flour and whole eggs were a delightful mix of firm, springy and tasty. Lightly blanched with a traditional clear sauce (derived from some delectable format of chicken broth) lathered over, indeed we went slurp, slurp, slurp......slurping away to heaven. Also be treated to a really generous slab of chicken cutlet soused with one big deal of a marinade, yielding succulent meat wrapped in incredibly crisp, fragrant batter. Salivary glands secreting uncontrollably? You are definitely not alone.

Chicken Cutlet Egg Noodle ($6.30, an additional serving of chicken cutlet can be requested for just a dollar)

The squid cutlet hor fun was a close second in large part due to the deep fried squid pieces effusing a mild sweetness and turning out to be the right amount of chewy. The flat rice noodles which endured a brief scalding process was a palatable affair too of silk and bounce.

What didn't work out:

A return trip to check out the pork cutlet fried rice however left us hanging in midair; poor piggy was overly breaded and therefore we could hardly discern the underlying meatiness. A few mouthfuls of the fried rice (which looked rather unappetizing to be frank) revealed much mush packed with yet too little taste - a probable consequence of inadequate wok skill.
