327 Fried Beehoon Nasi Lemak – Hougang, Singapore

Advertisements

Sorry for the lack of posts recently cos it has been madness since I came back from Medan and the mountains in North Sumatra region. It was definitely a rewarding trip as I was experiencing semi-wet processing of coffee beans for the first time and that this method of processing is pretty rare in the Southeast Asian region. Anyways I have loads of food pics to share, I will find a starting point soon.

Anyways this beehoon stall was previously at block 309 of Hougang Avenue 5. They had to move due to the landlord jacking up the rentals so that they can take it back and perhaps rent out to their preferred vendors. Very apparent problem in F&B scene unless of course you’re a brand to reckon with. But I’m actually even more happy to see them at block 327 as I board my buses from the bus stop there haha.

Good thing about this beehoon stall is that their prices are reasonable and at the same time, tastes good. There is another stall at block 322 which has been monopolizing the area for quite a while, even though the taste is really just soso.

 

Always got queue, even on weekdays!

 

Choices of maggi mee, beehoon, kway teow mee or nasi lemak.

 

All the toppings you might wanna add to your base of beehoon or noodles. The tofu on the right is surprising nice and I order that sometimes.

 

Their top topping is this fried boneless chicken thigh. Well seasoned and crispy when eaten there. Soggy when takeaway.

 

See how juicy the chicken thighs are… yums

 

Beehoon with kway teow mee, with veg, luncheong meat, fried chicken thighs and egg. Total $4.80.

 

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: As mentioned, the food is really good, well seasoned for the meats, only thing to pick on is the sambal chilli. Can be a little less liquid.

Portion: Normal portions are big. I ask for extra beehoon sometimes.

Service: Self-service. Lady over the counter serves while the hubby cooks behind. Service is good.

Ambience: Hot… Coffeeshop.

Price: Reasonble

RTE: All the time!

Address: 327 Hougang Avenue 5 Coffeeshop. Hours: 7-10.30am.

OTWAT: Which means Other Things Worth A Try. I would recommend the Claypot Chicken Rice which is cooked from scratch, vegetarian beehoon (a little pricey), laksa, and Tse char are not bad too.

THA-SIAM NOODLE BRANCH @ BANGKOK, THAILAND

Advertisements

This is a famous pork noodle place in Bangkok among the locals. One will notice all their branches are all in Thai names and even the menus are in Thai. I remembered my first time visiting this shop at Siam Square about 8 years ago, almost died from the spicyness… At that time a bowl of noodles was only 10baht… now it’s 29baht. But the taste hasn’t change at all, that’s the best thing about that. But before you order, just becareful the chilli levels.

Outside the shop... very not halal lah...
Kitchen counter which looks like a ship...
Deco with ancient Thai paintings
The famous Pork Noodles... awesome...

Vermicelli salad yum woon sen

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Love the thick broth in the noodles. Other food equally good and tasty. A place I must visit everytime in Bangkok.

Portion: Portion is a little small for the noodles… I remember I had to eat 2-3 bowls the last time.

Price: See last picture. About SGD$11 only for all that above.

RTE: Hell yeah!

Location: This location is at the ground floor of MBK… in front of the supermarket and cab stand.

IKEA Tampines

With a title like that, I reckon some of you must be wondering… WTH… IKEA? Like we don’t know! Yeah I believe most of you don’t know yet, but IKEA serves one of the best breakfasts around and it’s super duper affordable!

Met up with my business associates this morning for breakfast and I was amazed by my discovery!

Nice ambience & not too crowded like lunch time or weekends
Scrambled Eggs Set. Croissant is big! Only $3.00... yes $3.00...
Vegetarian Beehoon... Only $1.80... yes, $1.80 only... Very nice.

 

yum yum
The sauce looks bland but it's very tasty!
Free 2 cups of coffees if you're a member! Remember to remove the stick after stirring. Cos it'll change the taste of the coffee.

Rating: 4.5/5 (Would be perfect if the scrambled eggs set is a little warmer. But, it’s alright with me, I eat cold food!)

Taste: Scrambled eggs set is nice and value for money. Vegetarian Beehoon is really nice. But if you’re a strict Vegan, the beehoon is not good for you cos they use garlic to fry it. Something you may wanna take note. 🙂

Portion: Scrambled Eggs Set is good and the croissant is bigger than most places. Vegetarian Beehoon is portioned reasonably as well and has a lot of ingredients.

Price: Scrambled Eggs Set ($3.00), Vegetarian Beehoon ($1.80), Coffee (Free & Refillable if you’re an IKEA member), Water (Free)

RTE: Yes definitely whenever I’m around that area… now we’re considering holding our meetings there already… haha…

P/S: RTE = Return To Eat
