Macau really have a lot of good food around and I was brought to his one specially by my friends because they frequent this place a lot. They serve street style Burmese food. Again the stairs to upstairs is a little narrow and steep but I made it up there anyways. It is just beside the famous 妈阁 temple where the first foreigners arrived in Macau at the little port right in front where the carpark is.
Taste: Realised what they eat in Myanmar is almost similar to what we eat back in SG. I reckon the taste (Spicyness) is a little toned down for the locals but nevertheless, it’s still a good meal and very affordable.
Price: Dishes are like HKD$10ish to HKD$20ish. Very affordable.
Noticed a signage saying there’s a new coffeeshop at Block 112 of Bishan St 12, so I turned in to have a look at what they have. There are more active stalls than the last time before their renovation and now this Food Summons coffeeshop is a lot brighter, cleaner and more food variety.
Spotted an Indian stall at the corner and noticed that they are offering tandoori chicken as well other favourites like chicken tikka, naan and chapati… The stall is managed by an Indian and a Chinese National. Funny pair really but this Chinese guy knows the food and names well… he does the light cooking like mee siam and mee rebus and warming up the meats… tried the mee siam on a separate day, nothing exciting… will try the mee rebus on another day. The India guy does all the baking of naan, chapati and frying of pratas, thosais, etc. For a small stall, they have a good variety and when you are there at 8pm, these choices are still available to you!
Below are the dishes I’ve tried on 2 separate visits:
Taste: Very nice tandoori taste… meat is tender and tasty… a tad salty though but it’s great with the plain naan, rice or chapati. The sauces could be better though.
Price: With the pics above.
Location: Block 112 Bishan St 12. It’s hidden below a slope. So check the map first before going. Closes at 10pm.
Was at this area for some training and noticed that there is a coffeeshop there at the ground floor of 261 Waterloo Centre, facing the Dance Ensemble Centre there.
Most stalls were closed already by the time we finished our training at 6.30pm. So we just ordered whatever there is. So we tried the Nasi Bryani and the Indian Rojak.
Rating: 4/5. Presentation is really bad. But food is worth the mention.
Taste: This bryani is really not bad. Reason is, they cooked it traditionally. Meaning, they cook the meat together with the rice so that the juices of the meats will trickle down the rice and the rice will be exceptionally fragrant. Exactly like what I’ve eaten while I was in Bangalore, India. Indian Rojak is quite standard lah but most importantly, it was served hot.
Portion: Rice a bit little for a giant like me. Maybe because rice too tasty that’s why give little? Hmmm… next time must ask for extra which I believe will be like $1.00 extra for another scoop.
Price: $4.00 (Really cheap for Nasi Bryani which most places are like $4.50-$5 now.)
RTE: Yes I would and will also try the dry mee sua there which was closed.
Location: 261 Waterloo Centre. (Opposite Dance Ensemble Singapore)
I was wondering… how can I not talk about Singapore’s common favourite breakfast! Yes Roti Prata is prolly a poor man’s food in Sri Lanka and India, but in Singapore, there are so many versions of it now that it pretty hard to upkeep. First they have the original plain ones, then they add egg, then cheese, then mushroom, then banana, then some other fruits, then ice-cream, then also tissue, plaster and paper pratas… And I think I only named half of the entire range. Malaysia’s version is called Roti Canai… dunno why they must named it differently when the Indians and Sri Lankans themselves say that it’s Prata… sigh…
I’m not gonna feature those cocky and over priced places famous for pratas… you guys should know where they are. This one I’m featuring is gonna give those places a run for their money. Located at a corner of the coffee shop at Block 350 Ubi Avenue 1, this place is known by the people who lives or work around the vicinity for it’s croissant -like crispy pratas! Originally started by an Indian couple, both can do the pratas equally good. Now they have a Chinese guy taking orders and serving the plates… dunno if he is another partner. You know lah, I don’t announce I’m gonna feature their food. I’m stealth remember?!?! Ok check out the pics below and click to enlarge.
Rating: 4.5/5. Would be a perfect 5/5 if the cheese they use is Mozerella ones…
Taste: Taste like our very own croissant! Crispy outside, fluffy inside. Best of all, it’s not oily!
Price: 70 cents plain, $1.20 with egg and $1.50 with cheese. (Price list pretty clear on the first pic)
RTE: All the time when the craving comes.
Location: Blk 350 Ubi Avenue 1 Coffeeshop. Morning only till 12pm.
Was at Upp Boon Keng Road Food Centre again. this time I was back to feature the Kambing Soup which is the much better one. But of course, eat in moderation. Maybe once a month the most. Check this out.
Taste: Very good. Meat is tender cos they use the leg of the goat. Soup is really good and taste damn good when you dip the chunks of french loaves in it. Also check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWNKOmzZ1Lw. 🙂
Portion: Loads of chunks of mutton. No joke.
RTE: Yeah of course but not too often lah… Not good for health.
Location: Blk 17 Upper Boon Keng Road Market & Food Centre. Check out the online maps for direction. Very near Kallang MRT station.
At the same food centre as the Penang Char Kway Teow, on the same row, there’s this famous Kambing Soup stall with the green signboard. One of the best in Singapore I must say. Reasons stated below:
Taste:No strong mutton smell which most women cannot take it. The soup is thick and full of flavour. Love it!
Portion: Quite a big bowl with loads of mutton cubes! Not bad for its price. But the bread is $1.00… not very cheap… so next time bring your own french loaf, buy the soup, sit somewhere further and then start dipping! haha…
Price:$4.00 + $1.00 for the bread
RTE:Yes but not too often cos not good for health. 🙁
