This is a famous pork noodle place in Bangkok among the locals. One will notice all their branches are all in Thai names and even the menus are in Thai. I remembered my first time visiting this shop at Siam Square about 8 years ago, almost died from the spicyness… At that time a bowl of noodles was only 10baht… now it’s 29baht. But the taste hasn’t change at all, that’s the best thing about that. But before you order, just becareful the chilli levels.
Taste: Love the thick broth in the noodles. Other food equally good and tasty. A place I must visit everytime in Bangkok.
Portion: Portion is a little small for the noodles… I remember I had to eat 2-3 bowls the last time.
Price: See last picture. About SGD$11 only for all that above.
RTE: Hell yeah!
Location: This location is at the ground floor of MBK… in front of the supermarket and cab stand.
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.
I was in Hong Kong recently and noticed this little eatery near the hotel I was staying with crowds almost every time when I walk pass. So I decided to check out what the heck they are selling. Basically they have different types of noodles, with a basic clear broth, then you can choose to make it 麻辣, 酸辣 or 煳辣 (Ma La Spicy, Sourish Spicy or Peppery Spicy) then you choose your ingredients from the beef/pork/fish balls to bean skins, black fungus, mushrooms, vegetables, meat, etc. The broth looks plain at first but the taste is really good! Check it out:
Taste: Very nice and tasty. But spicy. Becareful.
Portion: Above average.
Price: Total HKD$56.
RTE: Yes I would but if I’m there I rather save my stomach for the beef brisket nearby.
Ok this is not my first time eating here. Many times already. Reason is that it’s really good and affordable. So I’ve arranged to meet up with 2 girl-friends to introduce how good the food is.
The shop owners are an old couple who hired a Thai cook from Bangkok (His name is Ah Thep or Ah Boy). Very nice and friendly people and somehow they are very contented with their lives until I decided to feature their food. I hope they have better business as they are really old already.
Rating: 4.5/5 (No aircon and got funny smell coming from the Thai provision shop next door.)
Taste: Very nice like I said. A change from the expensive Thai restaurants we use to know. Other must tries are Pandan Chicken, Fried Chicken Wings, Tanghoon Salad, Pineapple Rice, etc. Oh for the Thais, you might like to know they have glutinous rice (Khao Niao) as well to go with your dishes instead of white rice.
Portion: Very good.
Price: All the above for only $57.00. (Did not show us consuming 4 can drinks and 1 hot tea)
RTE: Always! My mum just love eating here!
Operating Hours: 11am to 9pm
Location: 301 Ubi Avenue 1 (see comments for new address)
Someone recommended me to go try the Penang Assam Laksa at Geylang Lor 25A. This restaurant used to be at Lorong 15 but moved here and I reckon it’s the silly rental cos the traffic at Lor 15 is a lot better.
So I parked at the open carpark just on the left after turning left to Lor 25A and then walk a little nearer to Paya Lebar MRT. The place is located along the shophouses, somewhere in the middle. I was there at 10pm so no one was eating there.
Ordered their famous Penang Assam Laksa, big bowl is $4 while the small one is only $3. Portion is quite big. Very tasty and sourish, a tad spicy, full of minced fish, definitely worth the $4.
Then I ordered the Shanghai Chicken Claypot also. $6 only. Quite nice. Tasted like the Sesame Oil Chicken but with herbal taste to it. Not bad.
Bill came up to $12.40… I think they forgot to put in another glass of homemade barley drink. But I paid the amount anyways lah. 🙂
Overall the food is pretty good. I would go back again to eat the laksa.
