Spotted this stall on Google Maps and have been wanting to try it for the longest time. Just that you know, Kranji is not exactly a place that is near anything except the Zoo and Johor Bahru. Stall is operated by mother and son tag team. Took over the stall from someone else but made it better under her charge. At least for most of the food that I’ve tried. Check out my vid for my reviews!
One look at the name you must be wondering what this kitchen is cooking right? Well this place is a little hidden gem which I discovered recently for BKT… Yes, Bak Kut Teh!
Weird is the fact this place is located nearby 2 other famous BKT places! Why compete with these big guys? Well they have an advantage. They sell herbal BKT and also dry ones. Other advantage is, their prices are cheaper than the other 2!
So WTH does DFTBA means? It literally means Don’t Forget To Be Awesome. And owner Connie, a retired police officer, never fails to be. She has since invited old folks from homes for lunch at their premise and they all enjoyed the food! Opening DFTBA in May 2015 is totally out of passion for cooking and good food!
I have since visited DFTBA twice and both occasions the food didn’t fail me. Check out the pics below!
Taste: Very nice. The passion is felt through the food from the owner. Try their Sesame Oil Chicken and Sambal Lady’s Finger if you have a bigger group.
Service: Excellent. Their laughter a are contagious!
Ambience: Coffeeshop. Can get quite hot.
Price: In the range of $5 and $10 portions.
RTE: Oh yeah when the craving comes!
Location: 97 Rangoon Road (2016 – They have moved to 335 Smith Street Hawker Centre #02-119)
七宝老街 (Qibao Ancient Street) is an ancient town which has been preserved for the purpose of tourism in Shanghai. However it is not a complete ancient town… just 2 stretches of old shops which is linked by a bridge. This is one of the attractions in Shanghai but it’s not very near the city. Nevertheless, I was there to check out all their street food and found some good stuff there actually! Check out the pictures I’ve taken!
Rating: 4.5/5. Eat quality is good. Gotta try everything!
Taste: Pretty good but I don’t really like the sweet stuff.
Service: Not good… cos so crowded
Ambience: Old and wet… cos Shanghai weather is mostly wet.
