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.
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.
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.
$4 for the Mee Pok, $6 for the Miso
Above average. Noodles standard but ingredients really a lot. See pic.
5-15mins. Depending on timing.

Intro:This is definitely a hidden gem which I came to know recently. Roy Thai Kitchen (no, I don’t have any invested interest in this if you’re wondering!) is nestled within a coffeeshop where the famous roast meat joint Guan Chee is. Although competition is strong, the boss of RTK (Which literally means Authentic Thai Kitchen) Admond, is determined to set a foothold in there to start providing affordable authentic Thai food to the neighbourhood. Even the Head Chef, Lob and second chef are from Thailand! Check out my reviews below:
Generally, all the dishes we had were very tasty! Really good! Only set back was the Sliced Pork Salad, which was a little tough for my liking. But the team will be working on this and hopefully we’ll have yummy tender pork on our next visit! Keep up the good work guys!
This is an outlet within my hood which I hardly visit nowadays. But since I was bringing Ron around and we found a lot (so lucky right!), then might as well pop in to check it out. Besides the curry rice, they also have a stall selling pork porridge and another selling simple desserts. See my review below.
Curry Rice – You cannot fault the dishes as they are prepared freshly daily. Love the flavours of the light curry sauce on the rice but I wished they poured more.
Pork Porridge – Tried the Pork Porridge too, smooth, light and the ingredients were fresh. The pork inside was very tender!
Cheng Tng – Probably one of the best I’ve tasted. It has the traditional Cantonese ‘Tong Tsui’ (糖水) taste and aroma. Best with ice! I’ll go back for this specially!
My plate of goodness was like $4.70. Very affordable and cheaper than most kali png places. Pork Porridge was $3 and Cheng Tng was $2.20 ($0.20 for packaging)
Self-service for curry rice. Service by pork porridge was ok. Dessert stall service was very good.
10-20mins depend on the time.
1018 Upper Serangoon Road
Hours: 6pm to 5am (Daily) Dessert stall close at 1am.
One look at the name you must be wondering what this kitchen is cooking right? Well this place is a little hidden gem which I discovered recently for BKT… Yes, Bak Kut Teh!
Weird is the fact this place is located nearby 2 other famous BKT places! Why compete with these big guys? Well they have an advantage. They sell herbal BKT and also dry ones. Other advantage is, their prices are cheaper than the other 2!
So WTH does DFTBA means? It literally means Don’t Forget To Be Awesome. And owner Connie, a retired police officer, never fails to be. She has since invited old folks from homes for lunch at their premise and they all enjoyed the food! Opening DFTBA in May 2015 is totally out of passion for cooking and good food!
I have since visited DFTBA twice and both occasions the food didn’t fail me. Check out the pics below!
Taste: Very nice. The passion is felt through the food from the owner. Try their Sesame Oil Chicken and Sambal Lady’s Finger if you have a bigger group.
Service: Excellent. Their laughter a are contagious!
Ambience: Coffeeshop. Can get quite hot.
Price: In the range of $5 and $10 portions.
RTE: Oh yeah when the craving comes!
Location: 97 Rangoon Road (2016 – They have moved to 335 Smith Street Hawker Centre #02-119)
You know most of the time we run out of choices for supper in Singapore and this is prolly a good place for such indulgence for your next supper outing. Was introduced to this little place by a friend and immediately it rekindled my years in China where you can find BBQs at every nooks and crannies in the neighbourhood.
Although they just started only like two months ago, I have since revisited them after they have renovated (expanded) but still most customers prefer to sit outside when they have a nice airconditioned room inside. On top of that, they even have crafted and draft beers now which of course is not offered by the coffee shop they are residing in.
Taste: Love it! Especially the pork skewers and special pork & chicken balls! Not forgetting the bacon skewers!
Portion: Skewers lor.
Service: Very good especially when 4 partners are there to help out.
Ambience: The new aircon area is damn comfy lah in this blardy hot weather!
Price: Skewers starts from $1.20 to $18 (sea bass) Sea bass is really worth a try!
Location: 489 Geylang Road. Opens daily. See FB page for hours.
