Checked out this market today and was told by Diana there are many old school stalls still here. Well yes that’s true and along these stalls came with their attitude. Saw a stall @hammees_sg which is prolly the only stall that is hipster but was told the wait was gonna be 1 hour 40mins. So ya, #okthanksbye.
Tried Hong Kee Porridge, not bad, liver a little bloody though.
The Bak Chor Mee was good, from another stall, forgot the name.
The pork balls noodles was a little bland but the minced pork balls were nice!
Then of course the famous dessert stall, very traditional until no iced versions. Yeah I had my cheng tng hot… Go support local ya!
Bak Chor Mee or Minced Pork Noodles are everywhere in Singapore and to be honest, I’ve never considered Seng Huat’s BCM to be written here. I was around in Bugis with another fellow foodie and decided to grab a bowl to try.
Taste: Very well cooked mee sua. It doesn’t clump together! The ingredients also quite a lot for the price. A little on the salty side if not will be a perfect score. Prolly due to continuous cooking throughout the day. Overall really yummy!
Portion: Below average.
Service: Self-service but I was served. Pretty hard to get the service staff’s attention.
Ambience: Warm. Coffeeshop with no aircon.
Location: 492 North Bridge Road (opposite Bugis Junction MOS burger). Operating hours: 24 hours.
At my favourite place again for my usual lor mee or fried hokkien mee, noticed that this stall of fishball noodles always have a queue and always closes before 2pm. So my mum went to queue for it. Queue was pretty fast for about 5-10mins.
Taste: One of the best Bak Chor Mee I’ve tasted so far. The broth is damn solid and the taste of the noodles is just perfect. Now I understand why the long queue everytime!
Portion: Above average
Price: $2.70 per bowl. If pack it’s $3.00 I think.
Location: Block 105 Hougang Avenue 1 #02-39. Usually runs out by 2pm.
Was back here again to try their other foodstuff. Stomach wasn’t feeling that good so cannot have anything curry… so I decided to try the noodles. Ordered a 小碗面which basically is a bowl of noodles of your choice with a bowl of soup with ingredients. I didn’t tell her to add more noodles as my stomach was not feeling that well but she did it anyway… I guess SIZE really does matter! ;P
Taste: Nicer than expected. 🙂 Should try their curry chicken noodles also!
Portion: Above average.
Price: $4.00 only.
RTE: Yes if around that area and when craving for noodles!
Location: Block 112 coffeeshop (the tandoori stall is just beside it…)
Sorry it’s been some time since I’ve updated this blog… too many parties and our Cambodia trip all made me extremely tired. Apart from that, my company is undergoing rebranding now and a lot of work to do. Finally found some time to update some of the good foods that I’ve eaten over the past few weeks.
I visited this noodle place located within this market along Old Airport Road. This little hawker place is just beside a market in between Jalan Lima and Jalan Tiga. Parked my car along the roadside lot, found a short queue building up before 12pm. So I queued up and ordered a ‘Fatty Meal’ which is a combination of a lot ingredients. Check it out below:
Taste: Not too bad. Noodles could be better. But for the price, with so much ingredients, it’s definitely worth it.
Price: $3.00 (Cheapest bowl is $2.00)
RTE: Maybe… but there’s an economic rice stall which is extremely cheap which I will feature the next time I’m there.
Location: Along Old Airport Road, before Jalan Tiga turning on the left. Stall number #01-14.
