18 SEAFOOD 食霸海鲜 – LOR LEW LIAN, SINGAPORE

YouTube – https://youtu.be/KcdJ8EHmQwA

Lorong Lew Lian is a very small estate area consisting of only 8 old HDB blocks and my aunty is living in one of them. So I kinda grew up in this area as I stayed with her during some holidays when I was growing up. To be honest, for the longest time, I don’t remember there are good food around this area. Usually mediocre options for the neighbourhood which you just eat and fill your stomach for that meal. Until 18 Seafood came along about 2 years back, changing the stereotypical Zichar stall expectations with very interesting Cantonese style cuisine and cooking methods.

What I like about this outlet is that the dishes are very creative but yet yummy. The Fried Mee Pok is prolly the only one in Singapore and is really yummy! I can eat that on a daily basis! The glutinous rice crispy chicken was delicious and a lot of work just to make it so crispy that you can cut by scissors! Another dish worth mentioning is definitely the Champagne Ribs. So well seasoned and juicy with every bite! The complimentary Pheonix Claws in Abalone Sauce was so well done my late Cantonese Grandma would love!

AH PING TEOCHEW BRAISED DUCK/KWAY CHAP – BEDOK, SINGAPORE

This is the side of Bedok not many would pass by or visit. Or maybe it’s me cos I’ve never checked out this coffeeshop before. And some stalls open only in the afternoon for the dinner crowd. So I decided to pop by one afternoon to check out the place. Not many stalls were opened except this deliciously looking braised duck kway chap stall was open and decided to give it a try.

What I like about this stall is that Ah Ping manages it all by herself. From prepping, cooking, taking orders, packing food, collect money, etc. She took over the stall from her in-laws and when I was there, it was still under the old name, which I’ve already changed on Google Maps. I’ve also included her mobile number for pre-orders so you don’t have to wait too long. Kway Chap is tasty, no porky smell, not too salty, very balance. The kway as explained in video, was the thicker one. I prefer the finer one cos it’s smoother. But overall good pricing and yummy.

MR LORBAK (卤肉先生) – Ubi, Singapore

I chanced upon this little stall within a coffeeshop when I was there for my regular chicken rice fix. You can read more about it and my number one ranking Prata stall here (https://eatwithroy.com/2016/04/13/ubi350/.)

The stall started in Feb this year at Bedok but moved to Ubi in April, and have been building momentum since. Especially so after Seth (Seth Lui) and Maureen (Miss Tam Chiak) have written about it. The owner of this humble stall is William, age 31 this year, with a number of years in the F&B scene, decided to drop his corporate life to share his grandma’s recipe with all of us! How great art thou! 😂 I always love tradition home recipes! 😬 Check out the pics and review below:

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Pork belly was tender and the fatty parts just melts in your mouth. Sauce was not salty with rice, I must say it’s just nice. Sides were not bad, love all but would like the tau pok to be a little more softer.

Portion: Average. I can never get enough of pork belly lah so I wished I could have the option to buy more next time!

Service: Self-service

Ambience: Coffeeshop

Price: Pork Belly Rice Set ($3.50) comes with a braised egg and black fungus. Sides are $0.50 each type per portion. Very affordable!

RTE: Hell yeah!!!

Goodicious – Upper Paya Lebar, Singapore

Intro:I was looking for durians at The Durian Story located at Prestige Point along Upper Paya Lebar Road when the owner Jonathan shared with me about this Goodicious place. Goodicious is just opened in February 2017 and located in this Gourmet House coffeeshop which personally I would not have visited if not for leads. Chef Yaoyi spent a good 8 years in hotels learning the robes to better western culinary and decided to venture on his own to experience managing his own F&B outlet. Well Big Roy is always very supportive of young entrepreneurs especially hawkers!

Store front

Grilled Pork Burger ($7.50) 

Takes the longest to cook but definitely worth the wait. Juicy and well seasoned. Yums!

Pulled Pork Nacho Cheese Fries ($5)

The pulled pork is very well seasoned and slow cooked over 8 hours. Super yummy side to order!

Creamy Truffle & Bacon Pasta ($8). Lovely creaminess to this carbonara pasta with generous bacon and mushroom bits sautéed inside. Filled with truffle aroma when arrived at the table.

Cod Fish & Chips ($8.50). The most expensive item on the menu for now, I totally love the crispness of the batter and the smart choice of Cod fish instead of the mushy Dory. Love it!

Promotion of March 2017, Pork Chop ($8). May be permanently in the menu thereafter cos this is a super dope dish!


Soaked in brine marinate over 24hrs to attain the tenderness which literally melted in our mouths. Black pepper sauce is also customed in-house and you can taste anywhere else using such freshly grounded black pepper. Imma heading there again this month in case it’s gone!

Wing, Otak and veg, $2.
Sesame oil chicken, veg and egg, $2

Intro:

My mum has been frequenting this place for the longest time cos she always tapao for me. So because I have a car now, I managed to check out this place finally and witness the amazing queue at this pure hidden gem eatery.

•

Taste:

They basically only sell economical rice but the fried chicken wings are their specialty. Each only at $1. I would prefer to have more curry on the rice so maybe you can ask for more curry sauce. Dishes are pretty tasty overall. Opens for lunch and dinner. Usually not much dishes left after 7pm.

Rice with 1 meat and 2 veg/sides only for $2. Yes, 2 freaking dollars!!!

SIN CHIE TOKE HUAN HAINANESE CURRY RICE – UPPER SERANGOON, SINGAPORE


•

Intro:

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. 

•

Taste:

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!

•

Price:

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)

•

Portion:

Average.

•

Service:

Self-service for curry rice. Service by pork porridge was ok. Dessert stall service was very good.

•

Waiting Time:

10-20mins depend on the time.

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.
