Grilled Sea Prawn Noodles — S$15.00
This bowl of noodles is an off-menu seasonal special, and I was thankful the wait staff shared this new creation with me. However, seeing the prawns with heads and shells intact has NEVER been my thing!

Beef Noodles with Rump — S$15.00

This should be your top pick if it happens to be a gloomy, drizzly day. The bowl of beef soup is really heartwarming — the rump was meaty and flavourful yet tender. Did you know the rump is a cut near the leg area and, for the health-conscious, contains relatively little fat ? However, I couldn't help feeling more thirsty than usual after gobbling down the entire bowl of soup (and more).
The beef balls here are made from 100% beef — as opposed to 'fake beef balls' packed with flour and other fillers. The noodles used here are of a different variety from the rest, and they got soggy after a while. This would taste great if you finish it before it turns soggy!

Stewart's Root Beer — S$5.00
Stewart's Root Beer is one of the best in the world, and you can hardly find this brand in Singapore. Originating in the United States, this was first introduced in 1924. It had a slight honey aftertaste and wasn't overwhelmingly sweet. The fizziness was pretty mild as well.
Additional Beef Soup — S$2.00
The staff were really friendly. We took quite a while to decide what to eat but they were really patient with us. Another plus: the toilets and wash basins were really clean! However, the chairs are not very comfortable and thus not conducive to prolonged sitting.
If you're planning on visiting, here are some tips:
1. Sit near the kitchen area to catch the wait staff's attention more easily. It's not warm in that area due to the air-conditioning.
2. Water is complimentary at the eatery.
3. GRUB Noodle Bar is tucked away pretty well along Rangoon Road. Even if you're driving, do bring along an umbrella as there are no sheltered paths at all.
