POH CHAN KEE ROASTED – BUKIT MERAH, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

Tried this stall years ago before Alexandra Village Food Centre underwent some renovation. This food centre is definitely much more airy than previous. So does the taste of the roasted meats here. Roaster Owner Mr Chan somehow managed to catch the right mix of temperature, timing and volume to achieve the succulence in his roasted meats today. I definitely loved it.

First gen Mr Chan picked up roasting meats in the year 2005 and Poh Chan Kee Roasted after the renovation was set up mainly is for his old regular customers and also for his son to carry on the business. We wish him all the best!

What I like about this outlet is the perseverance of Mr Chan, believing in his own skills and products, which are giving him a lot of repeated customers. Even for myself, I have pre-ordered a roasted duck myself for the upcoming Chinese New Year! And also with a starting price of just $3, he is making his food affordable to the hood. So be sure to reserve your roasted meats earlier cos he has limited capacity for that day only! Contacts below!

大少重庆小面 – UPPER BOON KENG, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

While I was checking out the herbal soups from my previous post, I chanced upon this stall managed by a young guy from China but I believe very much settled down here already. The noodles were definitely nostalgic for me as the portions you order are in 两 (Liang). So if you dunno, 1两 is around 50-60g (many schools of thoughts online but this stall is using 50g). 10-12两 is 1斤 (1 Catty). So how much is good for you? Normal adult will order 2两, 1两 is for kids. I would need 4两. Don’t judge ok, size does matter haha.

What I like about this outlet is that the whole stall is managed by the young man! Takes a little longer waiting time during lunch and dinner times but no choice lah, manpower for F&B is tough. I love the texture of the noodles, really reminds me of the times I would have my noodle fixes in China. Best of all the beef slices were not as tough as those in China and rather tasty overall. That explains the 4.8 rating on Google Maps.

AN AN MINCED MEAT NOODLES – BEDOK, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

For those who are wondering where they have moved to, they are now at Bedok at the address below. An An suffered a huge loss due to the recent fire in Block 823A Tampines coffeeshop, which literally wiped out everything. What I heard is the insurance was only for the coffeeshop and not the individual stalls, which I found it quite dubious. Anyways they are drawing a queue already at this usually quiet coffeeshop.

What I like about this stall is the sambal chilli for the dry version. Really nice and goes darn well with the noodles and vinegar. Noodles can be a little more al dente, a little overcook I feel but it’s tasty. The soup that comes with it has wantons. The wantons are surprisingly meaty and yummy. Pork balls are normal, unlike some other races the pork balls have teepor (dried sole fish) inside, which makes it a lot more flavourful. This stall has definitely injected life and competition to this quiet end of Bedok but it may not be for long as they have plans to move back to their hood in Tampines once renovation is ready.

泉 QUAN NASI LEMAK ECONOMICAL BEEHOON – JALAN BATU, SINGAPORE

Advertisements

I dare you to ask for extra beehoon or mee and finish it alone in one sitting at this stall. For beehoon mee lovers like myself will love it. After writing about their kway chap neighbour in my previous post, this stall is a stall I can’t miss. Food wise not the best but good enough for me if I’m looking for a beehoon mee fix.

Stall Front
Not much stuff left cos it was 11am…
This weighed over half a kg and I believe it’s only $2+
Smaller packet but big enough portion for normal adult. $1+ only.

What I like about this stall is that the portions are HUGE!!! Just how huge you may ask… Let’s say if you tapao, the measurements would roughly be 20cm x 20cm x 10cm(H)! And on top of that, they are probably one of the cheapest around! The uncle in front of me bought beehoon with chicken wing and half a fishcake was only $1.70! Yes they can have half a ngoh hiang or chicken cutlet also. But cannot half egg lah, later aunty half you then you know 😜. Quan is definitely a hidden gem and one that helps the community by providing affordable food! Well done!

鑫鑫 Xin Xin Claypot Rice – Hougang, Singapore

Advertisements

I reckon I’m reviewing too much on Hougang foods but no pian leh, recently around this area a lot and Hougang is where I grew up in. Came to know Xin Xin from a network of F&B bosses and went there support. Founded by 2 graduates who decided to try hawker business and started this traditional food line in 2018.

What I like about this stall is that the 2 young gentlemen gave up their comfortable office jobs to do something which most graduates wouldn’t even consider a bit. At the same time, using charcoal to cook the rice will definitely taste better, not forgetting it’s time consuming and thrice the price of gas. We should encourage such Young Hawkerprenuerships so that our generations below us will get to taste authentic traditional foods like this charcoal claypot rice.

Hup Seng Huat Cooked Food 合成發熟食

Ordered a bunch of wanton noodles for staff and myself for lunch with boxes of frozen jiaozi and wantons for my soup or steamboat on some other days.

The noodles give me a nice home feel and very heart warming. Love the plump wantons filled with fried dried sole fish bits inside and chestnut. Yums! Only regret is I didn’t ask for more chillies and extra noodles! Oh and the Braised Chicken Feet is super soft and tender! Must order!

[FOOD REVIEW] Rilek 1 Korner – Punggol Settlement, Singapore (PERMANENTLY CLOSED)

Advertisements

I’m typing this entirely on my mobile phone so please bear with me for my spelling mistakes… ;P

Rilek 1 Korner (R1K) which literally means Relax One Corner, is a catch phrase for our Malay friends which means chillin’ at one corner. Reason is at the corner, when you squat or hang around there while chillin’, chances are you won’t be in the way of anyone. Nevertheless, the boss of R1K, Zul, decided to use this name not for any puns but simply it’s easy to remember and most importantly, is what he and his partner wants to translate throughout the culture of this restaurant to be a casual chill out spot for people to enjoy their food.

I was contacted by Zul to go try his food after his revamp of kitchen, staffing as well as menu items . Prior to this, he admitted it wasn’t very organised due to the shortage of manpower. Well I can totally relate to his difficulties as hiring in F&B industry has never been easy, especially after the increasing restrictions to hire foreign talents. I went online to do a little research on R1K and the reviews were not very encouraging. Mostly complaining about the service and price, and some really got very personal. So I was there just last night with another fellow blogger, Rachelle (@hiamjio) who is known for her strict taste buds.

When arrived the location, the restaurant is already half packed and we were greeted by the friendly boss himself who then introduced us to his team and new manager. The food arranged for our tasting are typically their best sellers and check out the pics and comments below:

Facade:


See the people filling up the place.

Cereal Prawns $20


This cereal prawn dish is actually better than expected. In fact, it’s better than some of the tse char places I know. Reason is the cereal is not too sweet and packs a hidden punch of chilli padi within. The prawns are also very fresh and the sweetness from it is present.

Seabass Tiga Rasa $25


This fish is so fresh and tasty, you can taste the sea water in it. The sweet and sour sauce, according to Rach, tasted like mummy’s cooking! It has the traditional tse char taste and very good for sweet and sour @#%€ which I can’t mention here lah. The fish I reckon was around 800g to 1kg and a very good dish for that price!

Seafood Platter For Two $18


Seafood platter wasn’t complete for this period due to the lack of supplies for mussels which are flame grilled over with cheese and sambal inside. Nevertheless the calamari was crunchy outside and tender inside, prawn fritters nice and fresh while scallops were only so so. This dish was served with a very nice garlicky chilli sauce as well as their own version of BBQ sauce, which I thought could be a little tangier.

Seafood Hor Fun $7


Seafood Hor Fun is one of their individual staple dishes which we thought we should try and Rach requested for that. The hor fun lacked a little wok hei and was a little bland. Feed backed to them already and they will make it happen thereafter for a more complete finish for their customers. But the seafood ingredients used were damn fresh.

Seafood Tom Yum $13


Another extra order request to try this soup. Again ingredients used are very fresh, taste wise we cannot expect it to taste like a typical Thai tom yum. The soup is a little on the tomato base side but the flavours from the lemon grass and kaffir leaves were still apparent. It actually tasted quite good when it was cooled. 🙂

Lemongrass Ginger Mocktail $8


This homemade drink is ordered by Rach and a little sweet according to her. Nevertheless this is one of their more popular refreshing mocktail.

Lychee Cucumber Tea $3
I ordered this fusion tea which is newly introduced and I must say it was very nice and refreshing! The lychee gave the tea a very nice body while the cucumber adds a nice smooth finish to it.

Outdoor Seating


Coincidentally, it is Zul’s birthday today and there was a surprise cake planned by his wife for him. So we were fortunate to have celebrated with him on his hatch day! Happy birthday Zul!!!

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: No doubt R1K’s food is good. Menu is pretty good range and I heard there’ll be new dishes every quarter.

Portion: Average

Service: Very good. I observed that from an order is placed, the time taken for individual dishes was less than 10 mins and for mains, 10-20 mins. Everything is cooked on the spot.

Price: As listed above. Pretty reasonable for a SEA FRONT location!

RTE: Yeah definitely!

Location: 3 Punggol Point Road #02-02 Punggol Settlement, Singapore 828694. Tues to Sun 3pm to 11pm. Last order 10.30pm. Reservations: ‪8201 4212‬ (Call/Whatsapp/Text) Opens throughout CNY period! Accepts cash and NETS only.

Overall Review: The boss Zul is a passionate business owner who is operating on such a bigger scale with higher operations costs for his first time. I reckon it’s a little unfair to make sure quick judgements and slam those bad reviews online. You can tell from his passion with him being so hands-on in his biz and doing something about his flaws by revamping his operations and staffing issues. It is already tough to run a F&B business, it would be good that constructive criticisms are given there and then rather than hiding behind your computer/mobile devices giving destructive reviews. I reckon we should support local businesses as much as we can UNLESS they do not help themselves. Agree?

Tell you what guys, for the period of Feb till March 2015, show this blog entry of Rilek 1 Korner on your mobile devices to any staff, you’ll enjoy 10% off your bill! How’s that for a great start to a new Lunar New Year?

Peace out,
Big Roy
