Finally Tried This Legendary "Zichar" Hawker Stall This is one of those stalls I have heard so much about over the years but somehow, I'd never gotten around to trying their food. I guess you can blame it on the high number of tempting options at Old Airport Road Food Centre. Well, I finally had dinner there with my parents tonight and most of the dishes turned out to be really good. Of the four items we ordered, the white pepper crab was the hands-down winner. The sauce packed a potent peppery kick but more importantly, it's very fragrant thanks to the huge amount of butter used. Both the stirfried vegetables and the onion omelette were full of "wok hei" and really tasty as well. Now for the not-so-good part of the meal. I am sorry to say this but the sambal stingray which I had the highest hopes for, was disappointing because unfortunately, the flesh of the fish was tasteless. That could have been saved if the sambal had been shiok and spicy enough. Sadly, even with the "belachan" mixed in, the sambal lacked fire and was strangely rather bland. I hope this was a one-off that can be attributed to a unusually weak batch of chillies or something along those lines. Anyway, our total bill came to $82, inclusive of 3 bowls of rice, which is very good value. If you are keen to visit, do note this stall is only open from Thursday to Sunday, and from 4pm to 10pm. They sometimes close a bit earlier too.

Lemon Meringue Mochi Croissant ($4) & Vietnamese Coffee Cruffin ($4) I love tangy curds (think lemon, lime, passion fruit, etc), so the lemon meringue croissant was a must-try for me. I like the level of acidity and sweetness of the curd and the mochi croissant base is as good as ever — flakey on the outside and chewy on the inside. They have this flavour till the end of the month, so grab it while you can! Also tried the Vietnamese Coffee cruffins that were fresh out of the oven. While the coffee flavour is there, I’m not the biggest fan as the the consistency of the custard was slightly grainy.
pictures just can’t do these amazing croissants any glory! cross-section of the peanut butter and jelly croissant from @brotherbird_bakehouse aka the best weekend breakfast ever 👌🏼 would’ve loved more jam to balance out the peanut butter but all in all it still gets a solid thumbs up from me 🙆🏻‍♀️
Good start to the day with freshly out of oven bakes. Slightly slow to try these mochi croissants after hearing some rave about them. • Luckily there were still abundant when I was there and quickly bag their all available flavours. Their croissants are slightly different as it has a doughy texture due to mochi used and not as buttery. While I had the Matcha White Chocolate and S’mores, I felt Kinder Bueno was my favourite (so gotten two!) though it can be too sweet for some. If there were hazelnuts within the fillings, it will probably help to balance the sweetness. • They’ve also come up with their version of cruffin (combi of croissant and muffin). Flavours such as Rose & Raspberry Mochi Cruffin and Orh-nee aka Taro Cruffin.
