Classic Mac & Cheese From Ashes Burnnit! at Golden Mile Food Centre, a Muslim-run stall which had recently moved into the unit that Burgs by Project Warung had previously occupied in the food centre. Serving up affordable burgers, Mac & Cheese and Frossaints to the masses, the Classic Mac & Cheese here is pretty much a steal at S$5.00. Coming with their signature Mac & Cheese sauce, mix salad, garlic breadcrumbs and mozzarella cheese, this would appease the younger folks and hipsters alike with its cheesiness — the sauce carries a flavour similar to that of nacho cheese sauce; the flavours more tuned down here so it does not get too jelak throughout the serving, while the macaroni provides a good chew. The melted mozzarella cheese atop helps to provide a oozy, stretchy and stringy texture, while the garlic breadcrumbs provide a slight crispness to the entire deal. The greens attempt to help to balance things out a little, giving a good break in between spoonfuls of the Classic Mac & Cheese — did not find it absolutely necessary to include the Goma dressing, but certainly good to have. A pretty decent item to consider sharing at the table for a light bite, or something to have individually for a decently-sized sinful treat at the hawker centre.

Came looking for Burgs to find the space occupied with a new halal burger stall. They too offered gourmet types of burger with similar concept. However, we missed getting our fingers messy with the former which was more satisfying. Their truffle mushroom burger and signature cheese burger that we had were proper and decent but lacked a punch in flavour. Their thick cut fries, however, were good and tasted more substantial.

Chicken Cutlet ($5.50). Boy, this chicken cutlet was probably the size of 2 of my palms combined. Perhaps the more well-known western stall at this food centre is Chef Hainan, but thanks to the review of a fellow Burppler, we decided to get this chicken cutlet from No. 1 western stall, located at the back of Chef Hainan diagonally, on the same evening to have a comparison. This humongous piece of meat was evenly coated with bread crumbs which contributed to its crispy fragrant exterior, while retaining the juiciness of the meat underneath. The pairing sauce was special, not ketchup but rather a tomato sauce that adds a touch of tanginess and slight citrusy which cuts the oiliness. Zig zag fries were fried toll really crispy, especially the tiny ones were to my liking. Comparing the breaded crust of the 2 stalls, I would think No. 1 did a better job here. Price was wallet friendly and for this piece of oversized chicken cutlet, it’s hard to resist having on a return visit.

客家佬擂茶 HAKKA THUNDER TEA RICE Finally tried one of the famous thunder tea rice located at Tanglin Halt Food Centre!! Really love how creamy and thick the soup is although I was quite surprised that it was served cold. The amount of ingredients and rice balanced out well- I had vegetables to go with every mouth of rice Wanted to try the Yong Tau Fu but they were sold out when I was there on a late Friday afternoon Will definitely go back again especially for the soup!! Definitely worth the price of $4 for a bowl with brown rice and $3.50 for a bowl with white rice
陈记 Hainanese Chicken Rice. Located at 1A Commonwealth Drive, Tanglin Halt Food Centre, Stall 01-24, Singapore 141001. . . Steamed Chicken Rice, $3. Tender, delicious plate of steamed chicken rice that’s so irresistible! Their meat are cut in huge pieces and they don’t smash them, which we really dislike.. Their rice texture is just nice for our liking, perfect pairing with those spicy chilli with added ginger! . . . #hungryunicornsg #tanglinhaltfoodcentre #chickenrice #hainanesechickenrice

Ma La Xiang Guo (By Weight) It’s been quite a while since I’ve visited Jin Jin for their MLXG but it looks like their popularity with the supper crowd hasn’t changed. They’ve changed their serving bowls, that’s for sure, but the ingredients offered are pretty much the same. Thankfully the ingredients are weighed separately so you don’t lose out too much if you spam vegetables. This bowl for two with one bowl of rice cost us $18.20 which wasn’t too bad. I ordered medium spiciness and less oil, and somehow it didn’t quite hit the spot as it did before. The Ma la wasn’t very spicy, and not numbing at all. Still, since it has a good range of ingredients - especially vegetables and mushrooms, I’ll be back again from time to time but I’ll probably get the extra spicy instead.
Lovely Mala in Bugis Passed by this place many times and finally came to try the Mala Xiang Guo during a weekday evening for dinner. Very exciting little Chinese Cuisine place with two storey seating. Affordable price for a stall in Bugis/Central Town Area and its 中辣 was pretty fierce. Enjoyed my meal and cheap thrills having a little heart shaped Cheese Tofu! 💛
Mala Xiang Guo (Mala Soup) How often do we see soup base mala xiang guo? This mala xiang guo offer 3 levels of spicy level. If you like the spicy, go for medium...the items is self select and weight at counter, so take what you like and how much you feel like eating. The soup base was very interesting, it's very ADDICTIVE. It's really feel better on a rainy day, it just warm up your body. There are air conditioning on the level 2 where you need to take the stairs up from the back. Definitely I will go again, this shop closes at 2am... Another option open for supper..
