Opened not too long ago by young hawkerpreneurs, this Thai style beef noodles is really pretty close to what I ate in Thailand. Got the lead from one of my riders working in Wawa Pictures and so here I am.
Located away from the main road, this little stall is tucked away from sight and you’ll have to find the coffeeshop that is within some neighbourhoods. Check it out.
Taste: The broth is da bomb!!! Rich and beefy! A little sweet like Thai style but I reckon the Thais would love it sweeter! Glass noodles are nicer and chewy, the way I like it! Beef Shank and beef slices could be a little more tender but the satisfaction from the broth and noodles are enough to hide that part. The chilli oil is really damn spicy! Really awesome!
Portion: Above average. Noodles quite good portion or is it cos I dieting?
Price: $6 + $1.50 (extra shank)
RTE: Yes! The roast meats stall beside is also damn good!
Recently I was contacted by one of the partners of this little stall located in Bedok area to try out their food. So I brought along some foodies who were not working on one of the days I was off.
Located at a corner of a coffeeshop, the stall stood out from its modern outlook. But definitely overshadowed by some household stalls that were there for the longest time. Nevertheless, we ordered their signatures and see the reviews below:
Taste: Overall taste is good, just need to tweak on some of the recipe to make it great.
Service: Order at counter and food will be served to table.
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
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.
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.
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! 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.
$1.30 for Soon Kueh and Peng Kueh. $1.10 for Gu Chye Kueh.
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!
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!
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.
As indicated above.
Order and pay at counter and find a seat.
416 Upper Paya Lebar Road. Parking is not available there so better to Uber there.
Was taking a break the other day and came across this food court. As there were nothing much that interest me, I decide to give this minced pork noodles a try.
The bowl of goodness comes with 2 very fresh shrimps, sliced fishcake, 2 fishballs, pork slices and pork lard. The noodles are very different; eggy, supple, and very yummy. Not your regular alkaline tasting HK noodles. Really love the texture of it! Fishballs are really nice and soft too!
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. 😉
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.
Above average. Quite a lot of meat!
Order at stall and served at table.
