Hokkien Mee (Medium- $8) Came by on a Saturday morning just before they opened and there was no queue (prolly because of the new DORSCON announcement), but heard the queue could be really bad during lunch period. Ingredients were fresh and generous, and we really like how al dente the noodles were. Our only gripe was the lack of prawn-y and wok hei flavour. Still a decent plate of hokkien mee.
Hokkien Mee ($6) For $6, there was a generous serving of prawn, pork slices and squid. I liked that they used more thin white bee hoon as compared to the yellow mee. However, the wok hei is not as strong as other popular hokkien mee stalls. Overall, I would say the ingredients ("liao") outshine the noodles but the dish as a whole is still very much enjoyable.
Hokkien Mee Note: they changed location from below block 18, to the coffeeshop opposite: block 19 lorong 7 toa payoh What can I say, everything was executed just right. The noodles are fried adequately before adding the broth to remove the alkaline taste in the yellow noodles. The ratio of yellow and white noodle is ideal. The broth is flavorful with savoury notes from the prawn shells and heads, balanced with sweet umami flavour from pork (stock similar to the famous Hokkien mee at Lorong 1 toa payoh which likes you to come everyday). Enough starch released from the noodles made the dish cohesive as a whole Lastly the ingredients are really fresh! Prawns and squid are quite good quality for the price. Would highly recommend. All the details were done right, bringing it close to a perfect plate of Hokkien mee. Maybe the only small thing that could be better is that it lacks a bit of wok hei (fire not big enough?)

Yong Tau Foo My favourite place for fleshly made juicy meatballs, wantons and meat rolls. The wantons which are bigger in size than meatballs, are stuffed to the max with minced meat. Too big to be eaten in a mouthful. No wonder there is always queue especially when these deep fried items are brought out. I have even seen one ah pei who had just a bowl full of only the meatballs.

Fried Fish Pao Fan ($9) The week’s gonna start again and thinking of what to have for lunch after all that weekend feasting? If you’re working in CBD, check out Chao Ting that serves Pao Fan (泡饭) - rice in seafood soup. Popular with lunch crowd, this casual dining outlet by Jumbo Group never fails to attract queues during lunch hour. Not the most common of hawker dishes, Chao Ting’s version has been modernised to cater to the modern palette. The soup is packed with umami in every mouthful as the stock is slow cooked using prawns, fish bones, pork and chicken for hours. Fragrant steamed jasmine rice is added to the broth similar to Teochew porridge. I had the fried fish pao fan. The fish slices were thick, flaky and fresh and were coated in a light batter making it easily palatable. Standard toppings include fried egg floss and crispy rice added an additional dimension to this soupy delight. While this was delicious on every note, my only concern is the amount of MSG added as I felt a lingering aftertaste for the rest of the afternoon.
Teochew Pao Fan Opened by JUMBO, selling only rice in soup with fish or prawn. Easy to choose, there’s only 3 items on the menu with add-on ingredients available. Interestingly they also open during lunch time only. I was disappointed with the portion consider the price tag of $9. The fried fish was good but too little, even the rice also very little; all underneath the soup. I still felt very hungry after finish my bowl of soup.
Chao Ting 潮亭. Located at 132 Amoy Street, Far East Square, Singapore 049961. . . JUMBO Group of Restaurants recently open brand new dining concepts; Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine and Chao Ting, within the historic Far East Square precinct. Chao Ting is the fast-casual dining concept specialising in Teochew ‘Pao Fan’ – a classic Chinese dish of perfectly cooked grains of rice served in a bath of light yet flavourful broth. . . . Sliced Fish ‘Pao Fan’, $9. We arrived by 12pm and was greeted with a Long q and no seats.. As it was outdoor style, the turnover is very fast for the diners as it can be a like hot and sunny. This may looks unappealing and unattractive but don’t be deceived.. It’s very fragrant when served and the broth is very flavourful! The slow-cook the broth for hours, which explains the soup to be thicker and not your typical clear base soup you get outside. The slice fishes were very fresh and soft, there’s also fried crispy rice and jasmine white rice in the soup! We love those fried egg floss and ordered $1 add-ons for more! Very thoughtful, we were also given a pack of tissue for every order. . . They are open Mon-Fri, 11.30am-3pm, closed on weekends and PHs. My advise is to arrive early as it could get sold out before 3pm. . . . @jumboseafoodsg #hungryunicornsg #chaoting #jumboseafoodsingapore #paofan #chaotingpaofan
