I was told of this place by a friend who apparently visits this stall so frequently that she is part timing there now. To be honest, if she didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t have known such a hidden gem also. So I decided I should visit this place with a fellow foodie and you can find the pictures with comments below.
The stall is only about a month old, a invested interest of lady boss, Desiree Goh, who is 38 this year. She started this little stall for the basic fundamentals; Love for food and cooking. Sounds familiar ya? 😉
Rating: 4/5. Taste: Pretty good.
Portion: Good size for an average sized adult.
Price: As stated.
Ambience: Warm. Aircon very weak over this part of the mall.
RTE: Yeah gonna bring mum!
Address: 118 Rivervale Drive K1-26/27 Rivervale Plaza
Ok it’s Day 2 in Medan when I went around with the driver and trust me, this day I ate nothing less of that of Day 1! Let’s get started!
That ended my second day in Medan. Yes I did ate that much. Everyone had food coma after that…. haha… Day 3 was pretty much rushing to the airport and head back to SG. So that ended my whole short Medan trip. I promise I’ll be back for more good food! Till then Medan, I’ll see you guys soon!
Was wondering what to do one of my off days so I decided to head to Batam cos it has been a long time since I’ve last visited. So I called up my food buddy Chandra (@batamliciouz) and just so nice Charlene was also off that day, and off we went!
Was a great day of fun, thanks to Chandra and Joe for bringing us around! Didn’t try many things, so will definitely be back again and try more local foods!
I’ve been patronising this place for the longest time… maybe almost 2 decades… but since I’ve started eatwithroy.com, I have not written about this place at all! Maybe because they have been doing so well for so many years that I thought they do not need any more publicity. But then again, the other side of me is telling me that their food is so good, more people should know about it… hence this blog post! ;P
I’ve been to Whampoa Keng again recently and the food standards are still there. Really impressed with the way they have kept up the standards for such a long time since they started in Whampoa market! And they have since opened up at Rangoon Road as well as in Batam Island, Indonesia… which I will share some of the pics below. Check out the foods that I would order at this lovely restaurant.
Taste: Been eating here more than a decade, always good and love the fish and soup!
Portion: Good size.
Service: Pretty good.
Ambience: Crowded. Be prepared to go out smelling like charcoal cos that’s what make the soup so blardy good!
Price: Total was $92.66 after discount. Reasonable fit for 4 pax.

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:
Taste: Fish and seafood are fresh and very tasty. My comfort food after a long tiring day!
Ambience: Hawker centre with large fans
RTE: Many times already 🙂
Location: #01-38 Eunos Hawker Centre. Facing opposite side of MRT tracks. Opens from 10am to 10pm.
Began day 2 in Chiangrai pretty early by catching the sunrise at the rooftop of the hotel. Buildings in Chiangrai are not tall, maybe because of regulations on building heights. Anyways it was a pretty long day so be prepared to scroll down like mad. More of what I see, food wise was limited ‘cos I had very full brekkie at the hotel which lasted the whole day. Anyways, check out below:
So that ended my Day 2. Feel so tired just writing this post! Ok stay tuned for Day 3!
Wow I didn’t know time past by so quickly. It has been almost 6 months since I’ve last reviewed on The Manhattan FISH MARKET (MFM). You can read about the previous blog entry here (https://eatwithroy.com/2014/11/12/the-manhattan-fish-market-kallang-singapore/). Anyways was recently at another new launch of MFM and this time they launched A Beefier Catch, which features 4 new beef and reef entrees, in an effort to spruce up the older menu and gearing up to the coming Mothers’ Day. Check out the new dishes below:
Without a doubt, MFM is definitely good with their seafood and I just love the freshness. Having beef option as a promotion is a refreshing idea but I wish they would not lose focus in what they do best, which is seafood. Nevertheless, the event was great, food was good and service was excellent. Go try their Beef & Reef promotion from now till 31st May 2015 at any of their 16 outlets Singapore-wide. You may also wanna stay tuned to their Mothers’ Day specials on their FB page –> www.facebook.com/MFMSingapore
