It’s a wrap for @gajabysashicheliah in Melbourne! Thank you for introducing such a good home-cook meal to us! Today, I had a chance to try the beef rendang that is packed of flavour, ayam masak merah and my favourite rojak. The picture may not justify the flavour on the food! But whoever that has the chance to taste his food most probably agree with me 😊. Earlier before lunch, I actually bumped into him and his wife at a random alley way close to @hwkrmelbourne and chatted along the way to HWKR. I must say that @sashi_cheliah is very very humble and friendly man. So glad to meet u! Hope to be able to visit your future restaurant. All the best!
I have no luck with hawker stalls (went to Hong Lim Food Centre when it closed) or roadside eateries (Jay Fai was closed when I was in Bangkok). Not to mention the countless times when dishes are just sold out before closing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I need a hawker guide :’) Recommendations anyone? Closing times and peak hours would be ideal too!
Everyone goes on about The world famous Hainanese chicken rice. But the great thing about kicking around with a local is they introduce you to way more. This is the lesser celebrated Duck Rice served roasted with cucumber and I think it’s a very sticky plum style sauce. Literally the best hangover cure ever, with a cane juice costing in total $3 perfect for a pre Ubin bike ride #hawkerfood#hawkereats#food#singaporefoodie#ebwm#whitegirlasianfood#locallah
We’ve had breakfast at the same place two Sundays in a row - Lepak Kopitiam in Victoria Park.
Today we shared chicken porridge, chai tow kway (fried radish cake), salt and pepper squid, and fermented bean curd fried chicken wings.
Last week Jac had pan mee (noodles in an anchovy broth with pork mince and fried anchovies) and I had chee cheong fun (rice flour roll) with pork mince and Chinese mushrooms in an absolutely delicious sauce - I will DEFINITELY have that dish again. We also shared a serving of roti canai with chicken curry gravy (not pictured). So many places open 10am for breakfast which is way too late for us earlybirds. Lepak opens at 8am which is perfect, and there’s been a decent crowd each time we’ve been there. There’s a good amount of free 2 hour parking around the corner i.e. off Albany Highway.
I have a feeling we’ll be working through the menu (which is available all day) over the coming months. So far most dishes we’ve tried have been good - only one low point and that was the squid today (I found the seasoning somewhat bland). We enjoyed everything else - there was really tasty golden-brown crust on the chai tow kway, the chicken wings were popping fresh and juicy, and the porridge was simple but just right - with chunks of chicken, slivers of fresh ginger, chopped spring onion and little squares of fried wantan skin, an awesome little bowl of comfort finished off with a splash of soy sauce.
The original Lepak Kopitiam is in Bateman but this Vic Park location is more convenient for us. Hmmm, I just remembered as I write this post - I bought a curry puff takeaway from Lepak. Time for a snack.

Day 1: 8 hour flight from Melbourne to Changi Airport. Arrived late in the evening to the hot and humid weather. We then hopped on a taxi and arrived at our accommodation located in little India and what a cute place it was. The main thing was that it had air conditioning!
