汕源鱼圆肉脞面 (San Yuan Gourmet) – Ang Mo Kio, Singapore

Advertisements

Was told that this is a 24hrs stall and I decided to check it out since I was around the area. Wasn’t difficult to find them, just have to listen out for ladle-clanging-on-porcelain-bowl sound and you’ll find them.

Naturally when I was there, there’s a queue. I dunno if the queue was there because the noodles are damn good or it’s because it’s the only noodle stall there 24hrs? Only way is to find out.

Long queue lah…

My bowl of Bak Chor Mee $3

Interesting they have crispy ikan bilis inside. Adds to the flavours.

Fishball soup $2

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Really like the taste of the noodles but I found the noodles were a little soggy for me. The pork lard bits were crispy and burst in my mouth. The addition of ikan bilis was a final touch to the whole awesome taste. Pork and liver were very fresh and cooked to perfection without blood sightings. Fishballs were smooth and springy type. Overall was good.

Portion: Good portions.

Service: Self-service.

Ambience: Hawker centre, very dim lighting, dirty tables cos no cleaners at night.

Price: $3 for noodles, $2 for fishballs soup

RTE: I might… cos there’s a 24hrs Giant supermarket and bakery there catered for people like me.

Location: 527 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-148

Boat Noodle Express – Rivervale Drive, Singapore

Advertisements

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? 😉

Stall front

Thai Milk Tea or Cha Yen $2.50.

Pork Special Noodle Soup $4.80 – Their signature. Pork broth very similar to the ones in Thailand except the salt level is not so high here. Well tuned for Singaporeans. Love the glass noodles!

Beef Tendon Noodle Soup $6.00 – I’m proud to say I was the first to try this and the beef was so tender!!! Broth is light and beefy. Yummy.

Thai Fish Cake $3.50 – Very yummy.

Hong Shan Soon Kueh – Toa Payoh, Singapore

Advertisements

Intro:
Was here to try the famous Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Mee and I noticed the workers and boss at this stall at the corner were busy churning out trays and trays of kueh for steaming! Then the OMG moment came… the soon kueh is the real SOONG! (That’s how Teochews pronounce bamboo shoot) Soon Kueh dates back a long way to the Chaozhou and Shantou cities of the Guangdong Province! It’s definitely my first encounter with something so traditional here and I am so damn happy about it! 

The owner told me he has been doing this since he was a young man… easily more than 30 years already! A classic SG Legendary!

All handmade on the spot
Ready to steam ah!
Steamed Gu Chye Kueh!
Steamed Peng Kueh!
My orders

Taste:
Ordered the Soon Kueh, Gu Chye Kueh and Peng Kueh. Soon Kueh wins me over immediately cos of the filling of course, the skin texture together with the Gu Chye Kueh, is lightly chewy and soft. Damn good! Gu Chye Kueh fillings on the other hand was a little fibrous for me. Still like the soft soft type. But tasty though. Peng Kueh was nice and soft, prefer it to have a little more dried shrimps and mushroom inside. If not like a bit plain.

Price:

$1.30 for Soon Kueh and Peng Kueh. $1.10 for Gu Chye Kueh.

Good

Goodicious – Upper Paya Lebar, Singapore

Advertisements

Intro:I was looking for durians at The Durian Story located at Prestige Point along Upper Paya Lebar Road when the owner Jonathan shared with me about this Goodicious place. Goodicious is just opened in February 2017 and located in this Gourmet House coffeeshop which personally I would not have visited if not for leads. Chef Yaoyi spent a good 8 years in hotels learning the robes to better western culinary and decided to venture on his own to experience managing his own F&B outlet. Well Big Roy is always very supportive of young entrepreneurs especially hawkers!

Store front

Grilled Pork Burger ($7.50) 

Takes the longest to cook but definitely worth the wait. Juicy and well seasoned. Yums!

Pulled Pork Nacho Cheese Fries ($5)

The pulled pork is very well seasoned and slow cooked over 8 hours. Super yummy side to order!

Creamy Truffle & Bacon Pasta ($8). Lovely creaminess to this carbonara pasta with generous bacon and mushroom bits sautéed inside. Filled with truffle aroma when arrived at the table.

Cod Fish & Chips ($8.50). The most expensive item on the menu for now, I totally love the crispness of the batter and the smart choice of Cod fish instead of the mushy Dory. Love it!

Promotion of March 2017, Pork Chop ($8). May be permanently in the menu thereafter cos this is a super dope dish!


Soaked in brine marinate over 24hrs to attain the tenderness which literally melted in our mouths. Black pepper sauce is also customed in-house and you can taste anywhere else using such freshly grounded black pepper. Imma heading there again this month in case it’s gone!

Taste:
My foodie friends and myself have tried 5 of their items and overall we felt was so worth the price we paid and the food was much better than expected! See the pics above for descriptions.

金海湾香港烧腊 – Geylang, Singapore

Advertisements

Discovered another hidden gem today while I was looking for undiscovered food places in Geylang area during lunch today. This whole coffeeshop belongs to one owner and apparently their curry rice is quite popular too. But let’s focus on the roast meat stall first. 😉

Stall within coffeeshop
Yummy roasted meats
See how much roasted meats on the rice!!!
Look at the well defined layers!

Taste:

Ordered my standard char siew and siew yoke rice as that is my benchmark to test for good roast meats. Siew yoke’s skin was crackling and the meat was tender while the char siew had lightly burnt ends and half fat proportions. Rice was little but I was ok with it as I didn’t wanna eat too much for lunch. The roast meats were charcoal roasted and really yummy. There goes my diet, damn.

Price:

$4.50

Portion:

Above average. Quite a lot of meat!

Service:

Order at stall and served at table.

添南興肉脞面 (Minced Pork Noodle) – Bedok, Singapore

Advertisements

I was told that this Bak Chor Mee stall is better than the ones at Block 85 of Bedok so here I am. See review below.

Taste:
I love the broth, cos the raw minced pork is mixed inside the broth before serving, giving it a very yummy meaty taste to every spoonful. And there are bits of fried bonito (tee por) inside to make the soup even more flavourful. Noodles are springy but not the best of noodles though.

Price:

$4.00

Portion:

Good

Service:

Pay and wait to be served.

10-15mins
