老潮州 (Old Teochew) – Ghim Moh, Singapore


Ghim Moh is a place less explored by me if not for my other half. We decided to try this stall one morning cos of it’s loud green signage shouting the Teochew out of me… (I’m half Teochew you see…)

Old Teochew is located towards the last second row in the middle of the food centre and they offer only 2 products; Mee Siam and Satay Beehoon. We were in the mood for Mee Siam so we ordered. I’ve tasted very good mee siams in my life, from traditional to modern fusion and this one looks legit. What adds to the anticipation was the aunty’s precision in prepping the order. Looks like an OCD to me haha… There was a short queue so had to wait a little and finally got the mee siam in 10-15mins.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Love the balance between the tanginess from the assam, the spiciness and also the nuttyness from the sauce. Yes, she adds grounded peanuts into the soup to give it more creaminess and aroma to the sauce. Super appetising, great for mornings!

Portion: Average.

Service: Self-Service. But they squeeze the lime for us… perfect for those who don’t wanna get their fingers dirty haha

Ambience: Hawker Centre

Price: $3… They got PayLah!

RTE: Twice so far!

金海湾香港烧腊 – Geylang, Singapore


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


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.

SERI SATAY – EUNOS, SINGAPORE


Intro:

Since I’m bed ridden these days I might as well write more. I promised some customers to write more on halal foods and here it is. I have been patronising this satay stall for many times now especially when BLACK&INK started cos it’s just opposite at Eunos Hawker Centre. Check out my reviews below.

The stall
The friendly Abang
My usual order of 5 x mutton and 5 x tripe
Damn yummy mutton
Somehow this tripe caramelises on the outside, damn good
All tables should be left like this. Plates empty. #worldcleanplate

Taste:

I love the authentic taste of this satay, the taste I grew up with. I believe this recipe has been passed down from generations. And the way they BBQ it is just awesome. A little burnt here and there and not overcooked. Damn yummy especially the tripe! So tender!

Price:

$0.60 per stick only. Very affordable compared to so many places.

Portion:

Good size per stick.

Service:

Served at table. The bro taking orders very friendly.

Waiting Time:

10-20mins. Depending on timing.

AH HOE MEE POK – CLEMENTI, SINGAPORE


Intro:Read about this interesting Japanese family in Clementi who started partnered with Ah Hoe Mee Pok to open 2 outlets. Going there you’ll definitely need to drive that’s why I only manage to visit them only now thanks to Uber. So the story in summary is Father quit from his regular job and decided to learn from the original Ah Hoe Mee Pok owner by working 6 months for free. So now they have 2 stalls operating at different hours to cater for their customers. Block 710 is managed by the daughter which opens much earlier and block 713 is managed by the brother while the father now oversees everything. As I only knew about 710, that’s the stall I visited.

Th Stall
Their latest fusion noodles
My order of mee pok dry $4
After finishing the noodles still got so much ingredients! Next time must order extra noodles!
My bowl of Miso Mee Kia. $6. See how the pork lard is finely cut and fried to perfection? Yums!
Love how mee kia soaks up the miso sauce. Yums!
Every bowl should be left like that. #worldcleanplate
Reina took this pic with me without knowing who I was.

Taste:

Taste wise is pretty classic. Not really a Mee Pok fan but at least the flavours were there. Would add a little more vinegar for my taste. The miso version which I tried weeks later was really yummy. I chose mee kia this time round and love how the miso sauce soaks up in the noodle.

Price:

$4 for the Mee Pok, $6 for the Miso 

Portion:

Above average. Noodles standard but ingredients really a lot. See pic.

Service:

Self-service.

5-15mins. Depending on timing.

HAVELOCK RD BLK 50 FRIED HOKKIEN PRAWN MEE – JALAN BUKIT MERAH, SINGAPORE



Intro:

Whenever I come to the west I totally dunno what to eat. So I dropped some one near Redhill recently and I was intro to the famous Fried Hokkien Mee. So I turned into ABC Brickworks Food Centre and check it out.
Little did I gel the pieces together that actually my other friends have been telling me about this place. So when I was there, I met an old Uncle and Aunty. Uncle is actually being featured in Tiger Beer’s recent uncagestreetfood commercials! He started helping at his mother’s fishball noodle stall when he was in his teens and have been in this hawker business for more than 50 years! Truly a Legendary Hawker!

Taste:

Visited twice already since. First time I ordered the medium plate, not enough… So second trip I ordered the $6 portion which was flooded with ingredients and bigger prawns! I truly love uncle’s version which soaks up all the eggy sauce and gives a nice slime coating on the noodles. Taste wise is exactly what I ate when I was young. Almost similar to Old Simon Road’s but this stall’s sambal chilli and crispy lard dressing adds on to the overall great eating experience. Yums!

Price:

$4, $5 or $6

Portion:

Average.

Service:

Self-service.

5-20mins depending on your luck.
