HONG KONG SOYA SAUCE CHICKEN RICE & NOODLE – CHINATOWN, SINGAPORE

Wefie with Masterchef Chan Hon Meng

>>> Video of the long queue <<<

Intro:

You know I’m not someone who chases fad and visits latest happening places. I’ll prolly go such places after the Hoo-ha dies down. But I was craving for some good Soy Sauce Chicken, given the fact that these were readily available for me when I was based in Guangdong, China. So with some crazy ass foodie friends, we went to check out this recently awarded Michelin 1 Star hawker. Good thing my friends were patient enough to queue from 9.30am when the stall opens only at 11am! So here’s our verdict.

Taste:

You know most places the soy sauce chicken is either too lightly braised or bland. This one has the right tones, lovely texture, tender and well cooked throughout. Salt level is just right too. Love it. The ribs and char siew are to die for too! As for the base, we all agreed the hor fun is really good, followed by the rice. Really yummy.

Price:

From $2 for a plate of Soy Sauce Chicken Rice… For Michelin Star… Where to find? One whole chicken only $14! No wonder the queue so long lah! Actually even before the awards, this stall already have to queue more than half an hour already.

Portion:

Above average.

Service:

They tried to take orders before opening at 11am. Very thoughtful.

Waiting Time:

60-120 mins.

NO. 18 ZION ROAD FRIED KWAY TEOW – RIVER VALLEY, SINGAPORE

Advertisements


Intro:
As I was devouring my Teochew char kway teow from my previous post, I spotted another char kway teow stall but with a long queue. So after I finished my plate of goodness, I went to queue to check out how good this is. I even asked the people queueing why this has a longer queue. He told me the kway teow here is a lot darker hence sweeter than the previous stall. So here’s my verdict.

Taste:

Definitely a lot richer than previous, darker and more oily. The use of pork lard is abundant hence more flavourful with the lard bursting in every bite. The cockles are also more plump and more ingredients are used like fish cake and Chinese sausage. However the previous one is a lot lighter in taste and great for people who do not want too greasy after taste. But for some would say, wanna eat these fatty foods, might as well go all the way! 😁

Price:

$4.00

Portion:

Quite a lot too for the price!

Service:

Aunty taking and packing orders. Uncle focus on the frying.

Waiting Time:

RIVERSIDE GOOD FOOD TEOCHEW FRIED KWAY TEOW – RIVER VALLEY, SINGAPORE

Intro:
Was recommended by my passenger to try cos he patronise this stall every weekend. According to him, this is the best he has tried. So here I am. 😊

Taste:

The Kway Teow here is fried in lighter tones and I kinda like the texture. Very very tender. Seems like they have braised the flat and yellow noodles prior to re-frying again. Taste wise is not as rich, and not so oily too.

Price:

$3.50

Portion:

Quite a lot for $3.50!

Service:

Grumpy uncle. Biz must be bad that day.

Waiting Time:

Less than 10mins.
