Boat Noodle Express – Rivervale Drive, Singapore

Advertisements

I was told of this place by a friend who apparently visits this stall so frequently that she is part timing there now. To be honest, if she didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t have known such a hidden gem also. So I decided I should visit this place with a fellow foodie and you can find the pictures with comments below.

The stall is only about a month old, a invested interest of lady boss, Desiree Goh, who is 38 this year. She started this little stall for the basic fundamentals; Love for food and cooking. Sounds familiar ya? 😉

Stall front

Thai Milk Tea or Cha Yen $2.50.

Pork Special Noodle Soup $4.80 – Their signature. Pork broth very similar to the ones in Thailand except the salt level is not so high here. Well tuned for Singaporeans. Love the glass noodles!

Beef Tendon Noodle Soup $6.00 – I’m proud to say I was the first to try this and the beef was so tender!!! Broth is light and beefy. Yummy.

Thai Fish Cake $3.50 – Very yummy.

Goodicious – Upper Paya Lebar, Singapore

Advertisements

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!

Taste:
