Dish: Neil Perry’s Noodles
If Flower Drum excels at anything, it’s service. They’re there to accommodate your every need and most whims, which is how Neil Perry’s Noodles came to be. And yes, we’re talking that Neil Perry, the guy with the ponytail and restaurants all over the country. One night, Perry was ordering up his favourite dishes like the drunken pigeon, sautéed pearl meat, and ginger scallion lobster noodles, and decided he felt like mud crab instead. General manager Jason Lui said to leave it to him, and a plate of perfectly picked mud crab appeared with a naked claw atop the crab-soaked noodles, and it became a regular order for Perry. Once he Instagrammed the dish, chefs travelled from all over the country and started requesting Neil Perry’s Noodles. And as they say, the rest is history.
