With their low wages, rickshaw pullers could afford only the cheapest of meals. One of their
meals consisted of three (or more) bowls of plain yellow noodles cooked with green
vegetables and dried shrimps.

As this dish was popular with the rickshaw pullers, it became known as ‘rickshaw noodles’.

It is still possible to find food stalls that sell rickshaw noodles. One such stall is located in
the Maxwell Road Food Centre just across the road from the old Jinrickshaw Station.
Note the words “RICKSHAW NOODLE” on the sign.
