Blk 17 Upp Boon Keng Market

Advertisements
It’s been a while since I’ve been to this old market for some of the good food here. I’ve arranged 2 friends to meet me here before we head on to May Day’s DNA concert in Singapore Indoor Stadium. The place can be accessible by walking from Kallang MRT Station also.

One of the must try here is an old couple’s Penang Char Kway Teow at #01-08. The stall is just right in front of the carpark when you reach the market.

damn nice

Rating: 5/5

Taste: If you have tasted the Penang Char Kway Teow in Penang, this is the closest you’ll get in Singapore. It’s damn good I tell you! Not too salty, not too oily, prawns are fresh, kway teow is tender and the fire control is perfect. No cockles for this one.

Portion: Very good for the price!

Price: $2.50 per plate only…

RTE: You bet! 🙂 Old couple no recognition from those commercialised rating programmes… So we must support them lah. 🙂

Top Of The Town – Bak Chor Mee

Advertisements

Was around the turning into Spottiswoode Park Road from Neil Road today and met up with my friend for brunch. He said the Bak Chor Mee there at the corner is damn good. So I tried.

Location is directly opposite Singapore General Hospital. You can park at the carpark there and walk across or you can find a lot behind along Blaire Road. Address is 167 Neil Road.

This is where I'm seated... Lunch time will be full house

So we ordered normal bowls and I requested to add more noodles as I was famished. So after a short wait, our food arrived.

Bak Chor Mee! Eh what is that piece of brownish thing?
It's a slice of ABALONE!!!
Soup which has such rich taste of so much minced pork has been cooked inside... there's a meat dumpling inside too!
Crispy Pork Lard... Took this pic for all my friends who love this... I'm not a fan though...

Rating: 5/5

Price: $3.50 (No price mark up for adding noodles)

Taste: Taste very nice, the chilli sambal they use is fried with loads of ingredients, a lot of ingredients with the noodles as well, the abalone slice was a surprise. Super worth it!

Portion: Damn good!

RTE: Hell yeah!!!

Sims Place Market Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee

Advertisements

Chanced upon this old couple selling Fried Kway Teow & Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee while I was at Sim Place Market the other day. This place is at Blk 49 Sims Place, unit #01-26 and it’s my regular haunt. Loads of good food here and I will feature them one by one whenever I can.

The stall is very clean although it’s only Grade B… but I prefer Grade B stalls cos usually taste better than Grade A ones.. haha… So I ordered a plate of Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee for $3 a plate.

Serves a lot of regulars which spark my curiosity to try this stall

Rating: 4/5

Taste: Sambal is very nicely fried. They use the thinner version of the Chor Bee Hoon which I like cos it absorbs the prawn broth nicely. Not very salty but just nice. You can tell they have been putting a lot of work in the broth for frying. If only it is fried a little longer with a little more broth, I believe the taste will be a lot better.

Portion: For $3, the portion is good. Ingredients are substantial and most importantly, there were 3 medium sized prawns and they are whole prawns unlike some other stalls they halved their prawns and prolly give you only 3 halves.

RTE: Definitely. Must support the old couple lah. They are like 60+ already still doing hawker. Will try the Char Kway Teow soon and put here. 🙂

2 Upper Circular Road Lor Mee

Advertisements

I’ve been eating this Lor Mee for the longest time so I’ve decided to try it again recently to see if the standard dropped or not.

As usual, the whole coffeeshop is managed by foreign talents from where my ancestors came from. Coffeeshop’s stalls are all under the same owner now cos all were wearing the same uniform… nevertheless I ordered my Lor Mee from the noodles stall.

$4 per bowl for bigger portion

Rating: 4/5

Taste: Used to have that herbal after taste but now very mild only. But overall still very tasty.

Portion: $4 per bowl a lot of ingredients. I had like chunks of fish, chicken and ngoh hiang. And because of that, my beehoon and mee got lesser… sobs…

RTE: Yes definitely will return to eat when I have the Lor Mee craving! 🙂

EnFrost Cafe (POMO Level 2)

Advertisements
Located at level 2 of POMO (formerly known as Paradiz Centre), the little cafe hardly sits more than 10 of me inside. Tucked in the middle of 2 other food stalls, some people hardly notice this stall. Nevertheless, I was there to try their food! They only have 2 things. Curry Chicken (with rice or bread) and Snow Dessert (with different toppings).

The curry chicken has a strong aroma about it and after tasting it, you’ll know where the aroma comes from. It’s the rumpah (Malay-nonya version of paste made up of different spices) that makes the whole dish so nice and fragrant. Taste wise, excellent. Full body curry taste and very very tasty. The chicken and potato inside were cooked to perfection and portioning is good as well. At only $4 for the curry chicken and $0.70 for the bread! Bread is toasted till crispy on the skin and fluffy inside. So when you dip into the curry sauce and put it in your mouth… I can’t describe the feeling… you must go try it yourself. 🙂

Curry Chicken @ $4

The same cafe also sells all sorts of Snow Dessert with fruits! At $3.80 each bowl, it’s worth it cos of the generous portions of fruits on top! Quite a big bowl. 2 normal persons can share 1 bowl lah. Must try too. 🙂 Best of all, you can tell them to go easy on the syrup!

Mango Snow Dessert – SHIOK!
Look at the strands of milky snow… yummy…
Grapes Snow Dessert (Look at the amount of grapes on it… the syrup taste like those bubblegum with instant tattoos)

I will definitely be back for the curry chicken and maybe try the green tea red bean snow dessert the next round! 🙂

Penang Food Restaurant

Advertisements

Someone recommended me to go try the Penang Assam Laksa at Geylang Lor 25A. This restaurant used to be at Lorong 15 but moved here and I reckon it’s the silly rental cos the traffic at Lor 15 is a lot better.

So I parked at the open carpark just on the left after turning left to Lor 25A and then walk a little nearer to Paya Lebar MRT. The place is located along the shophouses, somewhere in the middle. I was there at 10pm so no one was eating there.

Address of the restaurant

Ordered their famous Penang Assam Laksa, big bowl is $4 while the small one is only $3. Portion is quite big. Very tasty and sourish, a tad spicy, full of minced fish, definitely worth the $4.

The black sauce is prawn paste. Adds damn good flavour to the assam laksa!
Ah ha, there you go for the noodles. Their noodles apparently is a little more chewy on the texture. Quite nice.

Then I ordered the Shanghai Chicken Claypot also. $6 only. Quite nice. Tasted like the Sesame Oil Chicken but with herbal taste to it. Not bad.

Shanghai Claypot Chicken... Love the sauce... so I ordered a small bowl of rice... hehe...

Bill came up to $12.40… I think they forgot to put in another glass of homemade barley drink. But I paid the amount anyways lah. 🙂

Bill

Overall the food is pretty good. I would go back again to eat the laksa.
