I Love The Chicken Feet At This Stall ($3 / $4 / $5) I suffered from “grab-a-phobia” when I was young. It’s a condition in which the sufferer has a fear of the claws of a chicken feet clamping the face when attempts are made to eat the fleshy palm part. At least, that’s what I named my phobia 😂😂😂 I got over it some years later and after that, dimsum wasn’t dimsum without an order of “feng zhao” or “Phoenix Claws” (it’s the romanticised name for steamed chicken feet). However, the tastiest version for me, isn’t found in a Chinese restaurant but at a humble hawker stall that happens to also be one of my all-time favourites for wanton mee. “Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Noodle”, stall #01-04 at Dunman Food Centre, does one that’s terrifically delicious. I have witnessed customers ordering only that to enjoy on the spot or as takeaway. The style of preparation at this stall involves frying the chicken feet before braising which makes the skin flavourful and puffs it up for extra texture. The sauce is thinner than the usual thick, unctuous sort of midnight-coloured braising liquid but it is wonderfully aromatic with garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Shown above is the $3 serving and it is good for two persons to share. There is the option to have it with noodles too.

Very Shiok Braised Chicken Feet ($4) This plate of braised chicken feet is not typical in any way. It’s sold at “Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Noodles”, a stall in the basement of Dunman Hawker Centre that’s very popular for their wanton mee (I’m a fan). Plus, it doesn’t taste anything like the ubiquitous chicken feet you get at dim-sum places because well, it’s cooked with sliced ginger, dark soya sauce and sesame oil. The smell and taste is exactly like “Mua Eu Kway” (Teochew for “Sesame Oil Chicken”) but there is more sauce due to the braising method used. The chicken feet itself is fall-apart tender and I can’t think of a better way to eat it than to stick the whole thing in your mouth, suck and chew all the flavourful bouncy skin and gelatinous cartilage off, then spit the bones out into a spoon (do this gently so no one gets hurt). One order is $4 and is enough to be shared between two if you’re also having noodles. Let me warn you though that you might be reluctant because it is really tasty.

Wanton Mee Prices are at $3 - $4.50. Known as the Ang Moh Wanton Mee, this place reopened as Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Noodle after a short hiatus. The Wanton Mee ($4 after adding noodle) has its noodle springy, but it slants towards the savoury side taste-wise. Spiciness was just right. Comes with lots of wanton!

Available From 8.3am To 11.30am On Weekends: The Traditional Full English Breakfast ($25++ Includes Freshly Baked Bread, Croissant And Coffee Or Tea). Between 8.30am and 11.30am on weekends (for now but they will change it to a daily affair in the next month or so), The English House offers a Breakfast Menu that lists seven items plus assorted sides. You can’t compare this place with typical cafes in terms of ambience and food as it is a restaurant, so there is a lovely air of formality about the service. Whatever dish you order, you will be served complimentary sourdough bread and croissant with a few jams and “Le Beurre Bordier” (a famous French butter). Coffee or tea is also included in the price stated. If you have a big appetite, the Traditional Full English Breakfast is a solid choice. It comes with a Free Range egg, sausages, bacon, portobello mushroom and grilled tomato.

Hitsumabushi ($9.80) Did you say $9.80 for Hitsumabushi?!? With the opening of @UnaUna.SG a unagi specialty restaurant, get to polish off these charcoal-grilled unagi Hitsumabushi from just $9.80~ That’s value-for-money, though you might want to upsize to their Regular ($14.80) or Double ($19.80) for more Unagi.

Regular Hitsumabushi Giving the other unagi specialty restaurants a run for their money, Una Una’s Regular Hitsumabushi ($14.80) was pretty darn satisfying especially due to the fact that I didn’t have to compete with a snaking queue. Surprisingly good, the eel did not have any fishy odor and was quite plump. Fairly smoky, the best part of the charcoal-grilled unagi was the soft interior as some tend to dry out while trying to achieve the glisteningly crisp exterior in my opinion - so their rendition had both. As for the array of condiments, namely spring onions, wasabi, nori and dashi; they were pretty standard. Though my main qualms were that the dashi that lacked oomph and the slightly sweeter tare could be made more savoury. Nevertheless, it was a steal for the portion!

| 🍱 Cheap Tasty Unagi Hitsumabushi !... ~ · Unagi Hitsumabushi Double Serving - $19.80 · Freshly grilled unagi served in a rice bowl, comes with dashi and some typical garnish & condiments. The meat is flavourful, especially after adding unagi sauce, but the pickles, dashi and rice can do better. Enjoy the first portion of the hitsumabushi with its original flavours, before mixing the second portion with seaweed & spring onions. Lastly is to add in dashi to wash down all the flavours. May not be the best in the market but definitely coming back for its high CP value · Una Una @unauna.sg

Char Kuey Tiao ($4) Apparently Lim doesn’t sell their Hokkien mee in the day. :( So I settled for their CKT instead. It was nubbad, with a light wok hei and a good spicy kick. Didn’t enjoy the tiny little prawns used though as it dried up.

Hokkien Mee $5 Plugging away at this nondescript coffee shop along Changi Road is the brother of the owner of the more famous Kim’s Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. Having learned the craft from his sibling, he eventually set up his own stall which has seen multiple changes in location before settling in Hock Choo Eating House. Fans of a drier style of Hokkien mee will definitely dig this. The noodles are imbued with maximum flavour from having soaked up a richly umami broth made from pork bones, chicken, dried anchovies and sweet corn, which partially makes up for the lack of wok hei. What sets this Hokkien mee apart is the use of crispy fried ikan bilis as a garnish, adding a welcome crunch to the gloriously slurpy mess. Worth a visit if you’re in the hood. Taste: 3.5/5

Grew up with Lim Hokkien Fried Mee and it continues to be our favourite over the years. They use a combination of yellow, thick white noodles and beehoon. We like how it’s not too wet which a lot of stalls do, making it seem as if we’re slurping soup based noodles. The stock has strong garlic and prawn fragrance, with slight wok hei. Crispy fried pork lard and ikan bilis are also provided, which we gladly mix in to enhance the flavors. • Hokkien Mee SGD4.00

Amazing Korean BBQ Stumbled across this unassuming spot near the gym, #CheatmealSunday & we were so glad we gave it a try. So many options of meat, fish, prawn, particularly loved the pork chop, ribeye cuts, pork belly + the variety of vegetables, sauces and kimchi. Includes the cooked buffet spread too! Definitely try the rice cakes, kimchi stew and seafood pancake! At $25.80++, this was certainly well worth the spend!

Korean BBQ buffet At A Reasonable Price You may miss this korean bbq buffet place at the corner along the katong area but it is definitely value for money! There are a number of choices of meat including beef (marinated or not), chicken and pork belly in wine, garlic or not marinated one! Free flow Hot dishes are served too and you can have korean pancake, fried chicken, a few types of kimchi or even have a bowl of soup while waiting for the food to be ready! Veg and different sauces are served just in case you would like to wrap the meat while eating. The staffs are really friendly and they can address everything quickly. Recommended if you’re looking for korean bbq buffet at the east side.

Good Value Korean BBQ Buffet In Tanjong Katong I admit that I rarely go for Korean BBQs, let alone Korean BBQ Buffets. So I am not the best judge of them but I really liked my dinner at #DanjiSg a lot. Owned by a friendly Korean Chef-owner whom you'll notice popping in and out of the kitchen often to check on things, I get this feeling this is a place where pride is taken in everything they do. The elegant Korean lady manager may not speak much English but she has a very pleasant demeanor about her as she walks around to clear dishes, and doesn't hesitate to help clean the grilling pan when she sees it getting gunky from use. For the price (all listed below), I think their spread is impressive, especially for the meats to be barbecued. There're big, thick slices of pork belly dressed either in wine, garlic and Korean spicy bean paste, marinated beef short rib and beef brisket (my favourite - it's so buttery!). You can help yourself to the pile of fresh lettuce, sliced raw garlic, whole green chillies and different sauces to wrap the grilled meats in too. Seafood lovers will be pleased to know Danji offers really big prawns, squid and fish too (but the fish nothing fancy - just the white cottony-soft type). Besides the above, the buffet includes classic Korean cooked dishes such as kimchi stew, ginseng chicken soup, chives pancake, chicken wings and a tasty stirfried "japchae" (glass noodles). There's freeflow of rice, Korean tea and water. Dessert is simple cut fruit. I am glad the chef-owner does not display a huge amount of food at one go but does top-ups regularly instead. It's wonderful to see the focus is on having food taste fresh rather than simply going for a "wow" visual factor. Buffet prices are as follows: Weekday Lunch (11.30am to 2.30pm): Adult $15+, Child (4-12yrs) $8+ Weekday Dinner (5.30pm to 10pm): Adult $22+, Child $16+ Weekend & Public Holiday (11.30am to 10pm): Adult $24.80+, Child $16+ Address: 188L Tanjong Katong Road Tel: 6348 1244

For Malaysian-style Zi Char Easties, drop by Joo Chiat Road for some no-frills, hearty zi char with the fam. Order their addictively tangy Assam Fish Head ($18) with loads of vegetables and pineapples. Crack open the crisp, flaky Yam Ring ($18) to uncover a smooth and fragrant yam filling. Otherwise, the tasty Indonesian Prawns in Claypot (from $16) is a foolproof option, where buttered prawns sit in a spicy, milky broth. Save some space for the delectable Fried Pork Belly ($10) — best paired with sambal belacan! Photo by Burppler Veronica Phua

Assam Fish Head With A Very Appetising Gravy Within the corner coffeeshop that faces the big carpark in Joo Chiat are three stalls selling food I like very much. In the morning, I go there for “Da Dong Prawn Noodles” on a regular basis and of late, have also grown fond of the “ban mian” (the dry version is shiok) from the stall next to it. Come evening time, it’s the “zi char” dishes by “Mellvin Seafood Restaurant” that draw my return visits. I feel their cooking leans towards the Malaysian style, with dishes seasoned slightly heavier for a more intense flavour profile - something I find more enjoyable. Shown above it their Assam Fish Head which has a gravy sour enough to make your mouth pucker a little but there’s no denying it will also have you reaching out for more. They don’t stinge on the “rempah” so there is a nice body to the gravy too. As you can see, the amount of vegetables and pineapple is pretty generous as well. And for the record, every time we have ordered fish here, they have never not tasted fresh either.

Umami-greatness is happening right here at Ah Kee. This might be fear factor for some but I implore you to fear-less as this plate of kway chap (starting from $3.50) is what every carnivorous person should aspire to achieve. While some might deter from ordering the big intestines as some stalls do not clean it properly, which results in a stench, you can rest assure that Ah Kee does it impeccably well. Everything was so well balanced and you will not experience any strong “herbally” flavour in the braising liquid. I would highly recommend adding the pork belly/braised duck and especially the silky smooth pig’s skin. ____________ Ah Kee Braised Duck Rice Kway Chap Address: 531A, Upper Cross Street, Hong Lim Food Centre, Unit 02-18, Singapore 051531 • #BurppleChinatown

For Underrated Kway Chap This stall at Hong Lim Market & Food Centre is a foolproof choice for when you're in the mood for consistently good kway chap. Burpple Tastemaker Julius Lim also likes it for its affordable price and generous portions — definitely a plus for larger appetites or post-workout meals! The cook is known to pile the plates, but don't let that stop you from adding on a portion of duck to your basic Kway Chap Set (from $3.50). The bird is their specialty after all, and the meat is tender yet with great bite. Other add-ons to consider are Pig's Ears ($1) and Large Intestine ($1.50). That's exactly what Burpple Tastemaker Julius Lim ordered, and his heaping plateful of goodness came up to a very, very decent $6. Burp! Avg price: $5 Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Julius Lim
