We were originally lukewarm on Jook Sing. The Southeast Asian restaurant and bar in Noble Square felt like a sleepy place you stop in for a snack after a long night of drinking somewhere else. But Jook Sing post-liquor license is a blast. People pack into the small bar and dining room for cocktails and fusion-y street food like Singaporean roti john or Malaysian fried rice on paper plates. The meal might be sensory overload—there’s a backdrop of bass-heavy hip hop and an infinite amount of multi-colored lights—but focus on the well-balanced drinks and their “internet noodles.” Piled high with corned beef, an egg, and plenty of sambal oelek, this noodle dish is easily the best thing on the menu.
