Taking its name from the Hokkien word for noodles, Bakmi Lim Noodle Project at the Rundle Place Food Court appropriately offers a good variety of noodle dishes. When you place your order, you select your choice of topping to be served with handmade noodles, spinach noodles, rice noodles or for those not in the mood for noodles, chicken rice or bun.
For a place that specialises in noodles, the quality of the chicken rice was excellent with enough 'chicken rice' flavour to make eating it enjoyable. The chicken and mushroom topping I picked for my dish was cooked to perfection, with its flavour subtly enhanced by the sauce they were cooked in.

Recently introduced, the braised pork belly was tender with a rich savoury taste. The handmade noodles we picked for the pork belly dish was cooked just right with still a little bite to them. Their noodle and rice bowls come accompanied with pieces of bok choy, fried wonton skin, fried shallots and chilli. It is advisable not to be too heavy handed with the chilli as it packs a potent spicy punch.

Bakmi Lim also offers prawn wontons and various types of teas to complement your meal. The food court offers plenty of seating places and Rundle Place's close location to public transport makes make getting there easy.
