Located on the second floor of Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, Fareground, Prawnaholic serves a good bowl of “Special Prawn Mee” for just $6.50. The prawns are juicy, noodles are well-cooked and tossed in what seems to be the owner’s homemade chilli sauce, shallot oil, and definitely lard! Slices of Kurobata pork are flame-seared before adding into the bowl to complete the dish. The pork is succulent, sweet, and has a wonderful smoky flavour. Soup wasn’t as “gao” as I thought it would be but it deserves a second try! The best thing: it’s in the east 🍽🙌🏻
Mee Rebus ($3) from “Queenstown Lontong”. My apologies for the lack of posts as work has been extremely busy ☠️ But I managed to step out of the lab for lunch today! A decent bowl of mee rebus served with a hard-boiled egg, fresh green chillies, beansprouts, fried shallots, beancurd, and half a slice of lime. I would have loved the broth to be thicker and less sweet. Other than that, #lunchisserved !
No. 1 Western Food (驰名西餐) is run by an elderly couple and it has a really long history of operating in Tanglin Halt. Their chicken cutlet ($5.50), fried on the spot, boasts a really crispy skin and juicy interior. Another plus point - it’s huge. It comes with a side of sliced cucumbers, baked beans, fries, and a special sauce that tasted somewhat like an intensified version of the baked beans’ tomato sauce.
Claypot chicken rice from Holland V is quite a decent lunch at only $5. You get your usual lap cheong (Chinese sausage), chicken, and rice that’s been cooked on the fire, thus leaving crispy and slightly charred bits at the bottom. Chicken was tender and well-marinated. Would be better if the rice was cooked a teeny bit longer and more lap cheong is always a hit with me. This shop sells double-boiled soups as well, so if claypot rice is not your thing, soups are fine too!
The bar is just more than bespoke cocktails with a local flavour. Consistently our kitchen has been churning out yummilicious local tapas that will satiate anyone with a craving. Come on up to the bar with the best local tapas on the Quay. Doors open at 6pm.
Back at Bedok for dinner and I decided to give the nasi lemak there a try (since there was a queue, must be good righttt --> Sg mentality indeed). This only cost me $2.20 and I understood why this is a popular stall. It's extremely value for money. The chicken wings had pretty good seasoning and was really crispy on the outside. I was impressed that it wasn't oily and the batter wasn't too thick. The winner has got to be the delicious sweet chili which I highly advise that you ask for more if you're a fan of nasi lemak chili. The rice was disappointing though as it lacked the taste of coconut and I thought I was eating plain rice. Unless I was....? .
Forever my favourite claypot rice place. The chicken meat is really moist and slightly sweet. The rice is fragrant and cooked slightly charred (well we cooked it ourselves). .
But my absolute must have in this restaurant is actually the lotus duck (fourth pic). I can't find the words to describe just how delicious this duck is. It's braised till tender and the sauce is thick, savoury and sweet. The duck has actually been fried before braising because the skin is crispy! So, so good! .
Other recommendations are the steamed veggies (third pic) and the weekend special- lotus leaf chicken, which has a slightly similar sauce as the duck dish but lighter. (See last 2 pics)
Fyi, please make an advanced order by calling them before going down as they take about 40mins to prepare your claypot rice. Also make sure you reserve your duck!!
One of the greatest thing I had in VH is having amazing friends by my side 🙆😘 Thank you for this dinner and catching up session with erm liquor *ahem ahem* ice cream ahaha. A slightly light dinner that is not bad eh ahahah! Sorry for the ulu venue but it ain't as ulu as NTU la 😂😂😂 They waited patiently cos I was late 😝 I've been to doublescoops quite a few times and each time it was different.
Im totally in love with the sea salt gula melaka sia! And the ferrero rocher flavoured ice cream was 😍😍😍 but it would be amazeballs if there's a sea salt ferrero rocher flavour hehe. And the zi char at kim san leng near double scoops was legit worth it. That whole table of dishes is less than $50 and the serving was pretty huge. Ahem we ordered all small servings except for the soup kays.
Yup trying to meet up with different groups of friends before I vanish to 🇹🇼 #sgig#sgfriends#sgfoodie#sgfood#saturdate#withmygirls#hawkerfare#sghawkerfare#zichar#doublescoops#sgeats#ccamates#mypillarsofstrength#igsg#igeats#sglocalfood#localfood#igfood#igfoodie#foodlover#flatlay#oppor9s
I'm a huge salad freak for weekday lunches and occasionally I get cravings for anything fried and unhealthy. One of the best things that happened in the food world to me is 五香 (Wu Xiang). I grew up eating this with my mum, who loves this unhealthy but super shiok dish. .
The one here at Maxwell Food Centre (the stall in the middle row) is one of my favorites. Everything you choose is perfectly fried and pairs amazingly with their delicious garlicky chili and some slightly sweet fried bee hoon.
Pictured here are fishballs, beancurd, egg slice and of course, ngoh hiang. All of which are always a must have for me. .
Although Nasi Lemak is a popular dish in Singapore, the version from Adam Road is quite possibly one of the more well-known renditions of this dish.
Recently, mama and I dropped by the branch at Tanjong Pagar, and ordered these for $15. While I found it a little pricey, the difference in price is well-substantiated by a difference in quality. The basmati rice was fragrant from the first mouthful and the chicken pieces were crispy and flavourful. I especially liked the chunky #bergedil (deep fried potato patty) which is not usually seen at nasi lemak stalls, at least in my opinion. I don't usually eat chilli but I would highly recommend having your #nasilemak with their chilli because it perks up everything ☺
Yan Ji Seafood Soup in Woodlands serves up a mean seafood soup, which is on a whole new level as compared to the average seafood soup.
Although I've only had this seafood soup twice, I could never quite forget the taste of it. The broth packs a deep, rich flavour due to the fact that it is simmered for hours with various ingredients, including scallops, which explains why the amount of broth provided is less than the usual seafood soup, while being pricier as well.
While the highlight of the dish is of course the savoury broth that often has diners asking for more, the ingredients also do not disappoint. The #prawns are large and sweet, and the #whitefish pieces are tender. I also like the #mincedmeat chunks, which are irresistibly flavourful, and dotted with pork fat and mushrooms.
The only grouse I have is that I wish I could have this more often ☺
Ever since Manpuku Restaurant at Tampines One ceased operations, it has been rather difficult to find #yakiudon , let alone a well-cooked plate of yakiudon whenever I dine out.
However, I've discovered another gem sometime back, which makes it a worthy competitor at the price of $4.80.
At Kopitiam @ KKH, there's nothing yucky about this plate of yakiudon sold at the Japanese stall. I love the moist, plump udon noodles which are altogether sweet, savoury and a little spicy. Well-marinated chicken chunks deliver a deep flavour which adds extra depth to the dish, and the addition of #japanese#kelp and #nori amps up the #Japan factor. Me likey ☺
Rainy days like these make me wish that I was back at Happy Hawkers Coffeeshop on a quiet weekday afternoon, having Claypot Mac and Cheese ($5) from The Cafe Menu. ☺ This is the classic #macandcheese with a twist, and is immensely comforting.
Mac and cheese dishes can sometimes be a little flat and unappetizing with the use of poor quality processed cheese. However, at The Cafe Menu, the addition of #nachocheese spices up the entire dish. The slightly spicy nacho cheese gives way to a more mellow interior filled with melty cheese and white sauce. I like it that the white sauce has a thinner consistency as compared to the usual white sauces, so that it would not be too cloying, and the portion is just right. The addition of #chicken cubes and #greenpeas also adds another dimension to the dish.
Little Bear would definitely go back there again, not only for the mac and cheese but also for the homely feel the coffeeshop has - all the staff there are like family to each other and the place brings a sense of calm. The stall owners are friendly too. ☺
It may not be immediately obvious, but Little Bear is of Teochew origin☺it was therefore intriguing to me to learn about the existence of #taukwapau , which is basically fried beancurd stuffed with various chopped ingredients, such as #braisedegg , #fishball , #cucumber and crispy #friedyam pieces which spilled out of the beancurd pockets. Little Bear liked having the braised sauce together with the tau kwa pau, which made it sufficiently moist. For an extra kick, pair it with the chilli, which comes in generous portions. However, while the tau kwa pau was interesting to try, I personally preferred eating the fried yam on its own because there is such a fragrance about it! Each tau kwa pau costs $1.50 each, while a piece of fried yam costs 60cents. Fishballs cost 30 cents each. ☺
I finally got to try this #rotiprata that many of my bear friends have been raving about! I ordered an #eggprata ($1.50) and a #plainprata ($1.00), as usual ☺While the roti prata at RK Eating House is crispier and more fragrant, it was way more filling as well. I could bear-ly eat another meal for hours after, though the prata was for breakfast! Me thinks it's perfect that the prata here is not too heavy, because the #fishcurry here is a star of its own, and goes perfectly with the prata too. I took a sneak peak at the next table and saw a man drenching his prata with the #curry ! Me likey the curry here because there's no fishy smell (though I love fish hehe) and it carries a hint of sourness to balance the grease of the prata. I couldn't stop eating! But be warned - queues are long, even on a weekday. Little Bear and @vivithefoodie waited for an hour just to get a taste of this famous prata!
