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
