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:
Taste: No doubt about it, very close to authenticity. Not overly salty, flavour just right. Wok hei controlled well without the burnt taste. Even Diana said it was good!
Portion: Good size for $3!
RTE: Definitely! I got a feeling the Char Beehoon is also good!
Location: Block 418 Bedok North Avenue 2, Epic Haus Coffeeshop.
eatwithroy will be heading to Taipei in Taiwan soon for the first time and will be featuring as many street food as possible while being there for a week. We’ve heard about it, we’ve read about it, we’ve seen them on tv, but how good they are, we’ll have to try these stalls out ourselves right?
So if you know any street or small stalls (no big restaurants or big famous chains) that you reckon is very good and should be brought to the limelight, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or share it here with the other friends of eatwithroy.com! The best and first recommended entry that is so awesome that Big Roy will float after trying it, will get a nice souvenir from Taiwan, specially chosen by Big Roy himself.
We will be putting up in Ximending, will be heading to Shilin Night Market and will probably sneak a day to Hualien. So please send in your recommendations now as we have only one week left to our flight! 🙂
Bought what? Bought the domain lah. eatwithroy.com is now mine! 🙂 Being back in Bangkok again does really help me to work on my food blog again and I do apologise for my readers for my absence. To add on to the spur are the statistics I see online where I have on average more than 100 unique hits daily without any new blog entries for more than a year! I know it’s little as compared for some other bloggers but to me, they are my readers, and I would wanna update more places for them to enjoy too!
So thank you my friends, for reading what I post, and for helping the blog to reach more than 40,000 hits already. I will be backlogging some nice food I discovered in Shanghai and will also be discovering new ones while in Bangkok or wherever I will be posted for my real job.
