SERI SATAY – EUNOS, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

Intro:

Since I’m bed ridden these days I might as well write more. I promised some customers to write more on halal foods and here it is. I have been patronising this satay stall for many times now especially when BLACK&INK started cos it’s just opposite at Eunos Hawker Centre. Check out my reviews below.

The stall
The friendly Abang
My usual order of 5 x mutton and 5 x tripe
Damn yummy mutton
Somehow this tripe caramelises on the outside, damn good
All tables should be left like this. Plates empty. #worldcleanplate

Taste:

I love the authentic taste of this satay, the taste I grew up with. I believe this recipe has been passed down from generations. And the way they BBQ it is just awesome. A little burnt here and there and not overcooked. Damn yummy especially the tripe! So tender!

Price:

$0.60 per stick only. Very affordable compared to so many places.

Portion:

Good size per stick.

Service:

Served at table. The bro taking orders very friendly.

Waiting Time:

10-20mins. Depending on timing.

5/5.

海鲜之家 (Seafood House) – Eunos, Singapore

Advertisements

Alright I’m attempting to write my blogs on the bus again. Can only do it when the bus is not so crowded or else very hard to use 2 thumbs.

海鲜之家 or Seafood House in direct translation, is a recent stall at Eunos Hawker Centre which I’ve discovered. Reason is because they opened till 10pm, a time which I can meet after closing the cafe. Stall is owner by a PRC lady who have been living here for the past decade and her hubby is a Singaporean. She goes to buy her fish daily from the market and occasional you may get some premium fish… Just like some single origin coffee beans haha. Heard it’s long queue during peak hours which I doubt I’ll get to see. Anyways check out the pics below:

 

Stall front

 

This was the premium fish order which was red snapper. Paid $8 for this bowl.

 

See the red snapper fillets. no regrets ordering this!

 

 

This was another time when i ordered the regular mackerel fish for $3.50 plus rice $0.50. Fish was very fresh and reasonably portioned.

 

This was the mixed seafood order whichis $5.00 per bowl. loads of seafood!

 

well well well there were 2 scallops!!!

 

And loads of seafood!!!

 

They use the 扁鱼 to flavour the soup

 

As usual, clean plate/bowl . #cleanplate

文華鱼圆面 (Wen Hua Fishball Noodles) – Eunos, Singapore

Advertisements

Ok this stall is interesting to write on. Reason is, I don’t find it super tasty at all. So why am I writing about it then? The fact remains that it’s doing very well not just for lunch but also during breakfasts. So I don’t know what’s the draw factor here. Maybe it’s the only fishball noodle stall within the next 300m radius? Or is it because the customers here are familiar with the taste already? Or is there something special about their chilli paste? You be the judge if you’re in this area. So far another friend ate it too and said same thing, nothing special. I ate 4 times already, still yet to discover the ‘wow’ factor.

My upsized bowl of wrong noodles… 😓

The well oiled noodles 😝
Ok the pork balls are prolly from the same supplier as the bak chor mee stall at 85 Bedok. There are minced flat fish inside. Which makes this noodle special? hmmm…


Rating: 3/5.

Taste:  Really nothing special. I must admit the noodles were well oiled by lard. It’s almost bland but I notice the chilli is made from dried chilli type, which makes it more spicy than usual. I had to empty the little saucer of soy sauce chilli into the noodles then it’s just nice. But overall it’s edible. 

Portion: Below average. Mine already added noodles still so small portion. 

Service: Lady who takes orders always screws up my orders. In the picture I order Mee Kia (fine noodles) but came Mee Poh (flat noodles) instead. Asked for more vinegar, it tasted normal. Some more she confirmed twice with me… Amazing…

Ambience: Coffee Shop 

Price: Base price $3.00. Add additional noodles $0.50. Add additional ingredients $1.00.

RTE: Kept trying this place and they are very consistent… Consistently nothing special. 😝

Location: 132 Changi Road. Morning and lunch only.  Closed on Sundays. 

TenderBest Western Food – Eunos, Singapore

Advertisements

I just realised that I have not written anything on this stall in Eunos after patronizing for more than a decade. Maybe because when of the long period I was in China. It’s just so good to rekindle with the awesome food here. One thing that I didn’t notice from the last time is that this stall is actually halal certified. So Muslim friends can also eat from the stall. 

The stall. Self-service but quite fast.
My favourite grilled chicken.

Rating : 4.5/5. 

Taste: I love the BBQ half chicken with fragrant rice. Really value for money on top of the juicy and tender chicken! The rice is similar to chicken rice type hence taste more awesome with the chicken rice chilli sauce they provide. Their fried wings are also very good at $1.30 each, although less healthier. 

Portion: Above average.

Service: Self-service.

Ambience: Within a coffee shop.

Price: $5.50 comes with rice or fries. 

RTE: Always!

Location: Eunos Food Station, 2A Eunos Crescent, Singapore 401002. Coffee shop hours. 

Kim’s Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee – Eunos, Singapore

Advertisements

As I mentioned earlier, I was on a Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee roll and I’ve always wanted to pay this place a visit. Kim’s Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee is one of the 3 pioneers for fried hokkien prawn mee in Singapore. Established in 1965, writing on this place cannot be more apt for SG50!

So before I visited Kim’s, I actually heard a lot about what happened to the food quality, what happened to Mr Tan’s life and stuff. I didn’t really want to know what happened, but what I saw was the 68 year old getting his hands dirty again and frying the noodles himself… yes, he is still in his long sleeves but I didn’t notice any bling Rolex. It seemed to me that he is trying his very best to get back the original flavour and quality. I was there on 2 separate nights and both nights Mr Tan was there to cook personally. Enough said, pictures.

Frontage

My order of $8 portion. Plate is big, portion is alright.
For the $8 portion you get more seafood ingredients and bigger prawns.
Back a couple of days later to taste the $5 portion. Prawns are smaller but ingredients are still substantial.
Their famous Oyster Omelette.

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: On the first night, I ordered the $8 portion. Loads of ingredients, good nevertheless. I went back on another night to try again if there was consistency, taste was similar if not better. However the broth could be a little richer. Ingredients was substantial for the $5 portion. Love the pork lard on the sides but would prefer it more crispy. Chilli belachan was good but would be nicer if it was spicier. Their famous Oyster Omelette was really good, a must-order!

Portion: Good. Quite a bit of ingredients. 

Service: Ok. 

Ambience: Coffee shop style. 

Price: Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee 

RTE: Yes!

Location: 62B Jalan Eunos, Singapore 419510. Tel : 6747 8766. Operating Hours : 11am – 1am

Overall review: If you googled on this place, many bad reviews on how bad the noodles are can be seen everywhere. I believe if more people patronize Mr Tan, he may get back the original standards. But that being said, I still see regulars swinging by at 11pm to 12+am to indulge in his Hokkien Mee. So you be the judge. 😉
