When you hear Red Mango, you must be thinking it’s either a fruit or dessert store right? This one has both. That’s right, this Korean food chain, made popular in the US is now in 5 locations in Singapore. I happened to chance upon it while I was at Wilkie Edge for dinner one of the Saturdays and my friends were like highly recommending it to me. So after dinner, we strutted to the open concept shop and ordered our favourite flavours… hmmm… favourite flavours… what a tongue twister… can you say it very fast 5 times? Ok I’m joking… here are the pics… ;P
Taste: Super smooth and milky taste. I just love it. The taste of freshness! Some more 99.7% fat free!

Think some of you saw my status on Facebook that I was meeting an equally crazy friend for porridge at Maxwell Food Centre at 6.30am… well this is the review lor! Struggled to get up last Sat morning… reached there at almost 7am… was late lah cos of work… sigh… The stall is located at the 2nd row, left side from the middle entrance from the open carpark. For those who always frequent Maxwell for lunch or dinner, you must be wondering how come this stall is always close… Reason is, they open from 4am to 8am… by 7.30am, they start running out of everything!
But at that unearthly hour, a lot of people are already waiting for their orders… So I went there show my face and he still remembers my old orders from many years ago… amazing chap. Waited for about 10mins only, our orders came.
Taste: Smooth, not too salty and taste just right. Raw fish is fresh and lovely…
Portion: Slightly above average.
Price: $3.00 for porridge and $4.00 for raw fish
RTE: YES!!! If I can wake up!!!
Location: Stall No. 13, Maxwell Food Centre. (Opens from 4am to 7.30am! Better be there earlier to avoid disappointment)
It was my birthday so I decided to have my lunch at this famous kway chap place at Old Kallang Airport Food Centre. Famous from Blanco Court, this stall needs no introduction. Reason why I’m featuring this is because the food is very tasty, they are a lot cheaper than their counterparts like the Macpherson one and the food quality is a lot better. On top of that, the lady taking orders is very friendly! I love Teochews! ;P
Taste: Very tasty, very tender, very traditional. Those who have gout should avoid this. Maybe like once a month is fine. 🙂
Price: Wth 5 bowls of Kway and all the dishes, the bill came up to about $11+ for 2 persons. Very reasonable.
RTE: Many times already. No time to feature only 🙂
Location: #01-135 @ 51 Old Airport Road Hawkers’ Centre
Was a little hungry after my performance at Jurong Point on Sat so I was driving along Beach Road then I turned into the place to check out some good food. I know the claypot rice is famous there but they were not ready yet. So I was on the upper level and walking around and found this pretty famous char kway teow place. I know I’m not suppose to feature famous ones but they are affordable and no pork/lard for my muslim friends!
This stall at #01-91 near the middle staircase, needs no introduction. Too many features… too many rules hanging in front of their stall… Self-service lah, no extra plate lah, no extra chopsticks and spoon lah, extra cockles how much lah, etc… Hence the whole bloody stall front is crowded with a lot of reading crap while you wait in the queue…
I was there at about 4pm hence during that time not many people so I was next in the queue. I sat right in front of the stall as you can see from this pic.
See all the signs of the stall…
So I ordered my $4 plate it came after a 5 mins wait. Their signage claim that they use superior stock to fry their kway teow… hence I have to try it. When my plate of char kway teow was ready, I was asked to stand up and walked over to the stall to pick it up myself even though there were no one else in the queue… for this, I’ll discount the stall a lot on their rating.
Rating: 4/5 (Would have been 4.5 cos of their poor attitude. Too famous perhaps?)
Taste: Quite good. Not too sweet. Cockles were fresh. Kway Teow was tender and nice. Somehow without pork lard, the taste is not as fragrant as it should be. Will try to feature the other one at Pasir Panjang… I believe that’s original.
Portion: Not very big plate for $4. Sad. After that you might have to order the Goreng Pisang Raja beside it… it’s very nice. 🙂
Price: $3 or $4.
RTE: Maybe if I have nothing else to eat at Beach Road Hawker Centre.
