BOH GEH UNCLE CANTEEN – SELETAR, SINGAPORE

A popular place for those working around that Seletar area, cab and Grab Drivers and apparently also to those who are doing their round island cycling. A really run down canteen with a kampong feel and only 3 stalls; Malay, Chinese and drinks. The Malay stall sells Nasi Lemak, Nasi Padang, Mee Siam, etc, dishes while the Chinese one is your usual Economical Rice stall. The drinks stall is managed by the owner himself with 2 lady generals making sure no one snaps photos of the premises and the food you paid for, which I thought was rather weird cos the other 2 stalls definitely need more publicity. Well, uncle must have his reasons lah.

What I like about this place is that the prices remain the same like in the 80s… Just like the ambience of this canteen, time came to a standstill. Don’t expect very nice hawker food here but they are very affordable which I feel is what keeping the lower income workers going.

Deanna’s Kitchen – Toa Payoh, Singapore

I first came to know Denise through Instagram and she told me about her plans to set up a Prawn Noodle stall and some more a halal one! I thought the idea was interesting and told her I’ll definitely be there when she opens.

So today is the day she started her dream. And as promised, I was there to lend her my support. See my reviews below and please support young hawkerprenuers and support local!

Congrats on your opening!!!
Prawn Noodles with Crayfish $12.50
Denise fries her own shallots, which makes a whole lot of difference to the taste!
Cray cray cray crayfish!
Prawns are left in their shells to lock in the sweetness!
Got Kang Kong and bean sprouts. Those don’t like bean sprouts better tell her in advance not to put!
#worldcleanplate #damnyummylah #morebrothplease

Denise and me

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: If I can invent a new word, it would be ‘Sumami’… which means Super Umami. The broth is really really good and I really hope she keeps up the standard. Imagine this is not even using any pork bones. Really old school recipe which everyone should try!

Portion: Average

Service: Self-service

Ambience: Hawker centre.

Price: Starts from as low as $3.50 to $12.50.

RTE: Yes!!

SERI SATAY – EUNOS, SINGAPORE

Intro:

Since I’m bed ridden these days I might as well write more. I promised some customers to write more on halal foods and here it is. I have been patronising this satay stall for many times now especially when BLACK&INK started cos it’s just opposite at Eunos Hawker Centre. Check out my reviews below.

The stall
The friendly Abang
My usual order of 5 x mutton and 5 x tripe
Damn yummy mutton
Somehow this tripe caramelises on the outside, damn good
All tables should be left like this. Plates empty. #worldcleanplate

Taste:

I love the authentic taste of this satay, the taste I grew up with. I believe this recipe has been passed down from generations. And the way they BBQ it is just awesome. A little burnt here and there and not overcooked. Damn yummy especially the tripe! So tender!

Price:

$0.60 per stick only. Very affordable compared to so many places.

Portion:

Good size per stick.

Service:

Served at table. The bro taking orders very friendly.

Waiting Time:

10-20mins. Depending on timing.

Rating:

5/5.

Chai Chee Nasi Lemak (1978) – Hougang, Singapore

Not to be confused with any outlets at Chai Chee, this stall is located at Hougang and originates all the way back to 1978. I’ve grew up with this ever since I moved to Hougang in 1986. Currently managed by 2 brothers, whom I believe is the 3rd generation.

Chai Chee Nasi Lemak not only specializes in Nasi Lemak as the name suggests, but also very good Nasi Padang dishes and classic Mee Rebus, Mee Siam and Lontong. I just love how they retain the authentic taste over the decades although it’s tough to retain the price. ;P Anyways it’s about blardy time I wrote about them and their commitment to good traditional food!

Stall front

Dishes at 8am… yes they run out pretty fast!

The 2 brothers… guess which one is the older one? 😉

One of my favorites, Mee Goreng, with sides of your choice. Right about of spice, awesome taste!

Another of my favorites, Nasi Lemak. I love my nasi lemaks with these fried fish which were fried till so crispy, you can literally consume everything. Yums to the max!

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Malay cuisine over decades, can’t go wrong. The queue will affirm that.

Portion: Average

Service: Self-service.

Ambience: Coffee shop

Price: Reasonable

RTE: Always!

Location: Block 322 Hougang Avenue 5. Hours: 5am to 1pm, while stocks last.

Nasi Padang @ Anna’s Cafe – Eunos, Singapore

Seems like I’m writing more about food that is around the coffee bar. Seriously I didn’t notice any interesting stalls inside Anna’s Cafe and it always seem gloomy and messy to me. But I ventured nevertheless, walked there one afternoon to hopefully find some hidden treasures. The first time I went I was actually taken aback by the $7.50 pack of rice but to be honest, there were 4 dishes of pretty awesome Beef Rendang, crispy salted flat fish, sambal dried mussels, some fried bittergourd and extra rice. 😁😝 So I went back again just yesterday wanting to try their Assam Pedas Fish but changed my mind when I saw the awesome squid-ink squids (sounds corny but that’s how it’s being cooked.)  Check out the pics: 

 

Look out for Anna’s Cafe on the left of Changi Road
  

No sign board, that’s why my blog post no name also 😝
  
Variety of dishes for a small stall
  
The squid is da bomb! although my friend’s mum’s squids are the best. Well beggars can’t be choosers!

 

Tried the assam fish on 9th April 2015, nice and sourish gravy. Love it. somehow this packet ahe gave me a lot of veg… don’t tell me she knows I wrote this blog post? 😒😒😒
 

Rating: 4.5/5. Rice a little mushy if not perfect score. 

Taste: Very nice and authentic. Love the beef rendang, squid is good too, and maybe will try their assam fish next. Sambal belachan would be good if a little spicier, not enough kick. But overall, good stuff!

Portion: The mains they gave a little more than some places. Veg however very little. 

Service: Ok… Speak melayu you be served better haha…

Ambience: Hot coffee shop

Price: $5.50 for the last pic. 

RTE: Yes because around my work place really nothing much to eat. 

Location: 218 Changi Road. Coffee shop hours. 

TenderBest Western Food – Eunos, Singapore

I just realised that I have not written anything on this stall in Eunos after patronizing for more than a decade. Maybe because when of the long period I was in China. It’s just so good to rekindle with the awesome food here. One thing that I didn’t notice from the last time is that this stall is actually halal certified. So Muslim friends can also eat from the stall. 

 

The stall. Self-service but quite fast.
  

My favourite grilled chicken.

Rating : 4.5/5. 

Taste: I love the BBQ half chicken with fragrant rice. Really value for money on top of the juicy and tender chicken! The rice is similar to chicken rice type hence taste more awesome with the chicken rice chilli sauce they provide. Their fried wings are also very good at $1.30 each, although less healthier. 

Portion: Above average.

Service: Self-service.

Ambience: Within a coffee shop.

Price: $5.50 comes with rice or fries. 

RTE: Always!

Location: Eunos Food Station, 2A Eunos Crescent, Singapore 401002. Coffee shop hours.
