Spotted this stall the other day and swear that I’ll be back to try their wanton noodles. Reason? I saw Pork Collar char siew. Then I thought it could be part of a special order or something, hell no! It’s the char siew they use for their noodles!!! Maituliao, Lim Peh is back here to check it out. To my surprise, it’s better than I thought!!! Found out also they have been operating for more than 20 years! See comments below!
Taste: I seldom give wanton noodles full rating but this plate of noodles won me over. Noodles were supple and springy, sauce is blended nicely balancing the sweet and savoury, the pork collar char siew was heavenly (can be a little more charred will be best) and last but not least, the wantons… normally only fatty minced meat right? This one has shrimps in them! No shit, shrimps! So much effort!
Portion: Noodle portion a bit little for me lah cos so delicious right! Big eaters please ask for ‘Ma Dai’, which means double the noodles!
Ambience: Hawker Centre
Location: #01-22 Ghim Moh Market. 7am to 2pm (Closed on Mon)
Another #sglegendaryhawker. My go to place for Gado Gado, an Indonesian style salad. Now managed by a young chap but food quality is still there. I’ve included another new informative tab on calories per serving, for my friends who are also watching their food intake!
Taste: Still loving how the peanut sauce blends nicely with the lontong/bean sprouts/tofu and fish keropok! Shioks!
Portion: Good size
Ambience: Hawker Centre
RTE: Whenever around the area!
Location: #01-33 Seah Im Food Centre (Opp Harbourfront Centre)
留着青山在，不怕没炒萝卜糕 (With Chey Sua still around, don’t be afraid there’s no fried carrot cake 😂)
Definitely a legendary hawker of over 50 years. Second generation now, their carrot cakes are made fresh daily and their unique way of frying their ‘pancake’ carrot cakes won them a place in the Michelin Guide.
Taste: Love it. They cut the carrot cakes into small pieces and mix them like fillings in an omelette, hence the pancake style. Very yummy and can tell they take time to fry them… that’s why we waited for an hour… 😓
Attended an Omakase dinner one of the evenings with a bunch of friends at this newly opened Japanese restaurant located right smack where all the action is, Club Street. Head Chef Ron Leo hosted us to a wonderful meal of yummilicious Japanese cuisine and sake which left us filled to the brim! Check out the pics below of what we had!
Firing up the Joshu wagyu!!!
Served with special sauce!
Chef showed us the way to eat uni…
Pop into your mouth!
Chawanmushi with black truffle and uni… Damn shiok this one.
Taste: Hands down one of the best tasting Japanese cuisine places in Singapore. Freshness accompanied by awesome service!
Ambience: We were there before their opening hence I believe the overall feel wasn’t completed then.
Service: Plain awesome. Chef Ron was humorous and staff we super friendly.
Price: $100 onwards (Depends on your budget but chef is very generous!)
RTE: Definitely!! When I feel rich! 😉
Location: 82 Club Street, Singapore 069450. Tel: 62220235 (Call to reserve with a budget and number of pax ready!)
I chanced upon this little stall within a coffeeshop when I was there for my regular chicken rice fix. You can read more about it and my number one ranking Prata stall here (https://eatwithroy.com/2016/04/13/ubi350/.)
The stall started in Feb this year at Bedok but moved to Ubi in April, and have been building momentum since. Especially so after Seth (Seth Lui) and Maureen (Miss Tam Chiak) have written about it. The owner of this humble stall is William, age 31 this year, with a number of years in the F&B scene, decided to drop his corporate life to share his grandma’s recipe with all of us! How great art thou! 😂 I always love tradition home recipes! 😬 Check out the pics and review below:
Taste: Pork belly was tender and the fatty parts just melts in your mouth. Sauce was not salty with rice, I must say it’s just nice. Sides were not bad, love all but would like the tau pok to be a little more softer.
Portion: Average. I can never get enough of pork belly lah so I wished I could have the option to buy more next time!
Price: Pork Belly Rice Set ($3.50) comes with a braised egg and black fungus. Sides are $0.50 each type per portion. Very affordable!
Sorry for not writing much lately cos most quick updates are done on my Instagram account @eatwithroy. You guys can follow me there too. Work has been tiring cos a lot of stuffs to do at the beginning and hope operations will smooth out soon.
Wanted a nice local brekkie yesterday and I thought I should visit a coffeeshop which I haven't visited for the longest time. The coffeeshop has renovated and there are many stalls there now with pretty impressive offerings. However, they have adopted the self-service mode and everyone has to queue to get their food. Gone are the days when you can order and find a seat. So it's quite tough for one person to find a seat during peak periods, hence have to share table. I waited for like 15 mins as there were some orders before me:
Taste: Got the old school taste and although it looks plain, it's very tasty! Love the suppleness of the noodles. Damn yums!
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!
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!
Ambience: Hawker centre.
Price: Starts from as low as $3.50 to $12.50.
Location: 127 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh #02-25. Check out their website for opening hours.
