海霞板面 Handmade Noodle – Hougang, Singapore

Advertisements

Individual stalls like these are either  recommended by someone or discovered by yourself. I was checking out another stall but to my disappointment, so I was fortunate that I came across this stall and the rojak stall which I will blog separately.

What I like about this stall is the lady boss who is very cheerful and obviously hard working cos she’s there as early as 5am to prep the stall to start selling at 6am. Even heard those who have moved away to Jurong come back just to eat her ban mian.

And what I like about this Mee Hoon Kueh is that the dough is super yellowish eggy and I believe she kneaded it till smooth and left to proof before using it for cooking. As a result, the kueh is extra fluffy and soft to every bite, which is a totally different gastronomical experience from your usual white plain flour mee hoon kueh. On the other hand, the Red Wine Chicken Mee Sua was also yummy, with appropriate wine strength in the broth which feels darn good while drinking it hot. I reheated my tapao soups but if you can, have it there will be nicer. They also have the ‘Fried Ban Mian’ which is literally just the dry version. Can skip.

85 FRIED OYSTER乡村古早蚝煎 – BEDOK, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

Tried this the first time when Diana tapao on one of the nights when it we didn’t know what to eat so we headed down to 85 Market after closing the cafe for the day. The other time was fried by a younger chap. This time round caught on video is the owner himself, Mr Goh. Prior to this vlog we didn’t know that Mr. Goh is illiterate hence Whatsapp or digital online platforms are challenging for him. In addition, his stall is overshawdowed by the 2 stalls on the front row. So hopefully this vlog can help drive him some traffic admist this pandemic… And perhaps more reviews on Google Maps as well.

When we had this Fried Oyster the first time, the taste brought me back to my childhood days where Fried Oyster was not affordable, and I thank my parents and Nanny for doting on me by letting me try many types of foods. Hence, expanded my taste profiling since I was young. This was our second time having it, the taste was equally good. Shows that the second generation has been taught well and I’m really happy for Mr Goh. Tried the Wu Xiang Xia Bing also, it was good but the beehoon had an unique taste which we were guessing was five spice powder. Other than that the ingredients were nicely executed. Ultimately in our opinion, this Fried Oyster is prolly one of the best around in Singapore, together with another stall, Teck’s Oyster, located at East Coast Lagoon Food Centre. So go support this legendary hawker since 1967 ya and keep the tradition alive!

XIANG LAI BAK KUT TEH – KRANJI, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

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!

Penang Char Kway Teow – Bedok, Singapore

Advertisements

This is truly a hidden gem tucked in between so many stalls with so many pictures of food hanging all over the place. Was here for lunch after doctor’s for Diana and I noticed this old uncle do not have that many orders like the other stalls in this coffeeshop. I told Diana that I had a feeling that the food might be good. So I approached the stall.

Mr Leong, the old uncle who retired being a crane operator is 77 years old this year and have been operating this stall for over a year. This is a very scary sight because at this age, he should be happily retired and living his life. There could be a lot of factors to consider but I’m leaning towards happy and positive thoughts… maybe his passion for cooking supersedes everything. So ya, here he is answering my questions and the first thing I asked him was,”Uncle, if I had to eat one thing, what would you recommend. He pointed the Penang Char Kway Teow. I told him ok let’s do it. $3 one plate. Reviews below:

Stall

The aroma already passed my test!

Soft and nice

For $3 there’s a lot of ingredients

Burp! #worldcleanplate

Uncle Leong

Rating: 5/5.

Portion: Good size for $3!

Service: Self-service

Ambience: Coffeeshop

Price: $3.

RTE: Definitely! I got a feeling the Char Beehoon is also good!

Don Lechon – Geylang, Singapore

Advertisements

Wah writing on this is not gonna help my dieting plans but I had it weeks back and this is a sure winner with most of my foodie friends and readers here. Was invited to check out Don Lechon, located at the back of Grandlink Square which is not easy to spot unless you walk inwards, and I was quite impressed with the food and passion in it!

Lechon, which means ‘Roasted Suckling Pig’ in Spanish is of Spanish origins. As Phillipines used to be under the ruling of the Spaniards, there are many dishes in today’s Filipino cuisine that are of Spanish origin. I have always a keen interest to know more about Pinoy cuisine after being exposed to some of the dishes like Lechon, Chicken & Pork Adobo, Asado and confectionery from the famous Goldilocks, like Polvoron, Mamon and my favourite, Ensaymada… I love cheese and everyone knows! Haha…

Ok back to Don Lechon, this quaint eatery has already a following as around the area lives many fellow Filipinos and this is truly comfort food for them. While they can cook many other items at home like Sinigang (Sour soup) and Kare Kare (Meat Stew), but the use of lechon in them makes a smoky difference! Started by a native Pinoy, Kris, who was originally from Manila and have been in Singapore for more than 8 years already. Going into this food business have always been his passion and to be honest, the food is really yummy and they do have dishes for one pax to groups. So to my Pinoy friends and readers in Singapore, you prolly know about this place already but you may wanna visit them soon!

Eatery front

Chopped Lechon ($9.50). Crackling skin of a suckling pig, this is very close to our Chinese Sio Bak or even the suckling pig itself. Damn yummy!

Yummy Lechon

Sauces to go with your Chopped Lechon. The darker one is a little sourish which goes damn well with the crispy pork. The other one is made from blood, a little acquired for me.

Lechon Kare Kare($7.50). Lechon is used in this peanut based dish as a stew and goes damn well with rice. Traditionally there should be a lot of spare parts including feet of pigs and cows. Thank God this is Lechon. 😉

Lechon Sisig ($9.50) – My favourite dish by far cos of the lime and chilli peppers used inside. You definitely need a plate of white rice for this!

Lechon Sinigang ($11.50). Big portion for this and great for those who needs more food like me. Lechon chunks are used inside and really awesome with rice. Sourish and savoury, how can you go wrong with that?

Lechon Paksiw ($6.00). Paksiw to me is like a stew and in this case, lechon is used as the meat base and simmered with vinegar and perhaps fish sauce. Very appetising dish.

Bopis ($5.50). This beef lungs dish has Spanish origins. Actually quite nice and spicy, sauteed in onions, chillies and tomatoes. Again you need rice for this!

Interior. No seats. All dining outside the shop.

Kris and me. Wish him all the best in his business!

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Pretty authentic. All the meat bases are of Lechon cos Filipinos do not waste their food. Extra food are usually used in other dishes so there is no wastage! You know it’s good when you can see so many Pinoys frequenting this place! Really love some of the dishes here and will be heading back for more soon!

Portion: Average. Please note that there are Rice Meals prices and Ala Carte prices. Ask if not sure.

Price: Affordable. Ate others before and pretty ex.

Service: Good!

Ambience: Al Fresco under tents. There are mozzies so please be prepared.

RTE: YES!!

鸿运茶餐厅 (Hung Wan Restaurant) – Shenzhen, China

Advertisements

Hung Wan Restaurant is a Cha Can Ting I frequent when I was staying in Shenzhen, China. The best thing about this place is, it is just below the regular spa I frequent too. So can order their food up and eat while I was watching TV program or having a foot massage! Awesome lifestyle back then and missing it definitely.

Hung Wan I believe are owned by Hong Kongers and they have gone through renovation recently and the interior designing was done by Millwork Interiors based in HK too. Very excellent work done, with a vibrant and energetic design giving the restaurant a younger and fresher look. Check out the pics below:

Taste: Not bad. Tasted better but nice enough to curb my cravings. A bit on the oily side though.

Portion: Average.

Service: Slow… Cos 24hrs… lesser staff?

Ambience: Smoking now disallowed inside aircon areas but still you get some assholes smoking inside.

Price: Total about SGD$12.

RTE: Yeah if I’m visiting that spa again.

深井华香鹅快餐店 – Futian, Shenzhen, China

Advertisements

Shenjing is famous for it’s roast goose in Hong Kong but you don’t have to travel there just to look for good roast goose. Many have learnt the trick of roasting good goose and they are all over HK and Guangdong province of China. One of which, was pretty near my Shenzhen office at Huaqiangbei area, the electronic city of Shenzhen.

The eatery is very very small and usually super crowded during lunch hours. The weird thing is, their meals are not cheap there as compared to some RMB$15 ones along the same road. But people would queue up and pack or dine in. So I gave it a try, and was lucky to find a table.

Store front

Left only 1 goose, sold out pretty fast so have to wait for second batch if late.

See how small the place

Soup of The Day or 例汤. Usually some veg thrown in with the greasy goose bones.

Char Siew and Roast Goose Platter (RMB68)

Goose Liver (RMB4)

Char Siew too lean for me

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: Roast goose not bad. The skin is the key factor. Very yummy. Flesh is tender. Char siew is typical lah, lean and a bit chewy cos of the tendons.

Portion: Average.

Price: As above on the pics.

Service: Fast and poor.

Ambience: Small, crampy and loud.

RTE: Tapao maybe. Will ask the runners to tapao next time.
