Back again! I really liked the omelette - it was still hot when served, and very fluffy and moist, with a nice charred exterior. The chap chye was decent - soft cabbages with dong fen and tau kee, but I think the sayur lemak (which I ordered previously) was better. The fish cake was good as well, bouncy and well-seasoned, there’s so bits of prawn in there too! I panicked and pointed to what looked like firm tofu, but it was actually firm tofu with tempeh. Tempeh is not my thing, and if I had to eat it I would have it fried. This was alright, but the tofu was tasty. The dish also came with some green beans and onions! Will be back for the prawn fritters, which were unfortunately sold out / not avail when I went today!

It’s a good caifan stall! The fried chicken was decently moist, and it was huge. The uncle cut it with scissors so it’s easier to eat. Enjoyed the soft stewy cabbages in the sayur lemak (there was some taupok in it too), and the tender potato. The curry is rather lemak but didn’t feel too heavy - it’s not too spicy, just a nice comfortable heat. Go before 12 to avoid long queues!

Finally caught this stall open. I must admit it's kinda underwhelming, since it's just caifan. Curry chicken, cabbage and beancurd skin dumplings. The most Peranakan element was the curry, which was very coconutty and delicious. Fyi the meat was an entire leg - unfortunately it wasn't cooked well. Dumplings were surprisingly good.

They sell a lot of curry, chicken curry to be exact. People before me (& after me) order chicken curry as a standard. Curry packs a spicy punch, & smells fragrant with hints of kafir lime leaves. I usually complete my order with the fried chicken, long beans, egg omelette & of course the sambal balacan chili! Shiok!

All that for $4.50

I saw this on toggle’s cheap cheap vs atas and at once was intrigued by how peranakan food can exist in the Hawker space.

I mean.. ALL THAT WORK + the unending list of ingredients involved and 🙌🏻🙌🏻 hands in the air, cos it all SHONE THROUGH.

I felt so humbled for slighting this sloppy looking plate for the brief second. The veggie curry really was LEMAK. It was a tad too salty on its own but that stubborn coconut and mix of spice just won’t leave your mouth without assaulting your tastebuds. The onions/gingers in the veggie rempah were like the greatest showman.

Pungently good and it wasn’t like they used the same rempah in every dish. Cos the chicken curry tasted different than the veggie curry. The chicken curry was a lot more dilute but that piece of chicken leg as you can see is falling apart soft.

Don’t leave without having the omelette! Super thick, oily, fluffy, fragrant ❤️

The Peranakan dishes at this cai fan stall makes Nonya food affordable, and our Burpple Tastemakers are loving both the prices as well as the variety. Burpple Tastemaker Sheryl Lyx topped her plate of rice with fried chicken, chap chye (Nonya stewed veggies) and stir-fried long beans, all for $4! Soft and sweet, the chap chye is proof of its long stewing hours, while the chicken is crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, like a good fried chicken should be. What really sets it apart though is the turmeric-laced marinade, which adds a whole level of flavour and complexity to the meat. Ask for a heaping spoonful of the amazing sambal belachan on the side.
