Had a great lunch with my folks before the lunch crowd hit. The mapo tofu is soft with a gravy which packs a punch and goes so so well with the soft grain rice. The Dan Dan mian is al dente in a fragrant peanut gravy, though I prefer my mom’s dry version. However, the side dish of Sichuan chicken has gotten all our thumbs up for its crispiness yet not being oily. Well the sichuan seasoning is on point too:)

This Chinese flatbread has 3 kinds of preserved veg representative of 3 cities in China in it: Xi’an mixed veg, Chong Qing preserved mustard green and Jiang Su preserved snow veg. Every bite of that crunchy flatbread sends both savoury and salty punches that will leave you craving for more. Initially the flavour could be pretty strong and a bit unfamiliar to get used to, but it really grew on us and we finished ours in no time😂 I’d choose this over my all time fav of red bean any time!

Not too sure about the affiliation between this stall and the restaurant sharing the same name across the street but decided to get from this stall with raving reviews. Just like MLXG, you get to choose the ingredients you want and that includes these glistening strips of springy guo 粿. Xiao la level of spiciness was chosen after being forewarned. Unfortunately, the kick from the mala spices was minimal and we felt that the usual mala fragrance was significantly watered down by the broth. Instead of getting the rice, we bought man tou from the opposite stall. Well, it was not tooooo bad.
Oh, the sichuan chicken in chilli oil was great as there was a fine balance between the spiciness from the mala spices and black vinegar. The sesame oil also added another dimension to the overall taste profile. So I guess the sichuan chicken side dish saved the dish?

For the price of $3, you can get a decent serving of al dente meepok with three handmade fishballs. The chilli has quite a kick to it so do ask for less chilli if you happen to have a low tolerance for spiciness (I sincerely hope you don’t cos chilli is life). Top up another $1.50 for handmade fishcake which has a nice bite to it:)

The bun is really well buttered and crispy. It really isn’t burnt as it looks in the picture. However the bun definitely could be bigger. The serving of lobster chunks is really generous with each chunk being pretty big. I think that’s quite important because it allows you to know that you are actually eating lobster😂 Well, the popular Boston clam chowder doesn’t need further recommendation for its creaminess and generosity of clams.

Loved how moist the sweet potato strips were within the thin, yet crispy batter👍🏻 I thought they went pretty well with the chilli mayo! Definitely a good snack with the crafts!
Please please try the truffle fries with shaved aged gruyere cheese. They are one of the best in town for me.

Picking up this extremely crispy old school snack is one of my family’s routine whenever we visit Fengshan hawker center. It’s freshly made hence you can still feel the heat while munching on it. What and how it is made is something similar to that of a pancake, just that this is very thin and crispy. While being on the hot stove, a layer of peanut and sugar is spread on it, lending it an additional crunch of sweetness and aroma.
Being a die-for for us, of course we usually don’t deprive ourselves of another treat on our way home😜

📍Block 87 Bedok North Street 4. Vegetarian Pancake.

The sear on the dory fillet was perfect while keeping it soft. The tom yum sauce was very creamy with a generous serving of mussels, clams and prawns. Loved the pasta salad too!

The decision to opt for clear soup was made after seeing reviews that the usual broth tasted artificial. When ordering, I was informed by the waitress that the usual level of savouriness/saltiness could be more overwhelming for some customers so I chose the less salty option. This ended up being a wise decision as the less-salty option was already quite savoury for me, someone who has a savoury tooth. So do opt for the less salty option if you have a low tolerance for saltiness. The chicken drumstick was still as tender though a longer time on the grill would have made it more perfect:) Appreciated the extra touch of flavour added by the yuzu peel too! Though clear, the soup was still full of flavour 👍🏻

The recommendation to these rolls couldn’t be any more appreciated after having the not-up-to-expectation rolls at Plain Jane. The sponge cake here was very soft yet firm and tasted really fine. The cream was of the perfect ratio to the sponge cake. The kaya cream was very fragrant and not too sweet. For the matcha, I could taste the tea flavour which I thought was sufficient and not as subtle as the reviews. Sadly, the azuki bean flavour was almost non existent, given its limited amount in the cream. Nevertheless it’s great flavour made up for it.

This place had been on my wish list ever since it made its debut on instastory and yes, I finally had the chance to try it.
We had the unique looking meringue roulade and popular yuzu. Totally enjoyed the meringue roulade as the meringue pastry was really airy and so special to be used as the ‘sponge’ of the swiss roll. Somehow it reminded me of eating Ritz Apple Strudel. As for the yuzu, I thought it just felt light and refreshing on the palate. Nothing too impressionable about it. Oh ya, the sponge cake of the swiss rolls served here seemed to be on the firmer side, for those who prefer a firmer texture to their cakes:)
The swiss rolls here are pretty pricey for their sheer sizes, so do come on days where Burpple Deals are valid (unfortunately I went on Good Friday) to make it feel more worthwhile.

With or without the noodles, the price tag of this set remains the same. The number of decently sized yong tau foo pieces (beancurd, bitter gourd, mushroom, fish and pork balls, fried wanton and wuxiang) is totally dependent on your luck as it can hover between 6 to 8 of them. The springy noodles were tossed in pork lard and topped with minced pork. So yum! Definitely missed this old school taste/ 古早味!
According to my mom, you might be delighted to find dried oyster wrapped with meat if you were to join the morning crowd!
