Huge, chunky pieces of fish that were pretty fresh. The slightly lumpy and cold rice wasn't as appealing though. The mochi that came as a dessert (set lunch) was great, with a smooth cream custard filling in the middle. Do make reservations during weekends especially if you're coming in a big group.
Waffles and ice cream are the best combination ever. Would prefer a creamier ice cream as this one simply melt too fast! $11.50 for double scoop ice cream waffle
Finally made my way to the new 142-seater at The Treasury! A big space that's perfect for large groups & what's best is that now you get some variation of beef & an Omakase option! That aside, our medium rare beef that we ordered came with a perfect pink center & charred just right on the outside. Don't say I didn't tell you about this 😉
This is probably my third or fourth visit to this joint and I'm seriously still digging the consistency of the quality of noodles and the ingredients prepared. The Mee Kia (thin noodles) are cooked to the ideal doneness. The way the noodles are seasoned is just like how it's done in BKK. Ingredients included a couple of deep fried wantons (dumplings), some Chinese Sausages (Lup Cheong), Thai Style Char Siew (not as sweet but more savory) and a bowl of soup with two wantons. One of the key ingredients I felt was the crispy pork lard. It provided a wholeness to the entire dish and completed it. 5/5

A corner of Tiong Bahru Market serves out sizzling plates of Taiwanese-style western food. This Chicken Chop ($5.50) comes with 2 pieces of juicy chicken breast, baked beans, coleslaw, fries and sunny side up. The chicken was easily to die for, as it is flavourful and tasted even better with the gravy. The fries were lightly salted and crispy, while the egg goes well with the sauce from the baked beans!
Hot Plate Western Food is located at Tiong Bahru Market & Food Centre, #02-54, 30 Seng Poh Road, S(168898).
