Grab an order slip, mark your choices and hand it over to order! I went with the smaller Hawker Bowl that lets you choose 1 carb, 1 protein, 2 sides, 1 fairy dust and 1 sauce. I had the aromatic rice, garam masala dory fish, sea salt crispy broccoli, disco mushrooms, crispy broken fragment and the cream garlic sauce.

Thought the portion of rice could be a tad bigger, but it was pretty tasty overall. The components complemented each other and were mostly well seasoned. Service was friendly and they are more than happy to share their pairing recommendations. There’s a bigger Towkay Bowl that goes for $9 with 1 additional protein and 2 additional sides. They also change up their menu quite regularly to keep things refreshing!

Located at 531A Upper Cross Street, Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, unit 01-44, Singapore 051531. .
Hawker Bowl, $6. For a change today, we had healthy bowl for lunch! Healthy eating doesn’t means boring, this is a super tasty bowl which we really enjoyed! Homemade spicy dory is well marinated with their spices, those sea salt crispy broccoli were very crunchy and tasteful, makes me feel like finishing all the vegs! Yummy!!! @bengwhocooks .

Liked the ambition with this dish, but the execution just fell short of the mark. First, the good stuff. The egg was sous vide really perfectly, and would easily be one of the best ones we’ve had in SG. Also, their toppings are generally very interesting and out of the ordinary and Ah Beng tries to switch them up once in a while. The tempeh strips weren’t crunchy nor crispy but added a nice nuttiness to the dish, as did the fibre bits (though we’re not sure what this came from). The fried broccoli was also a unique touch to the dish. The glazed tofu was really bland tho, and tasted like boiled tau kwa, only without any taste. The honey sesame beef was also very pedestrian, and had no depth in flavour; it tasted just like sugar was added to it. The heart/core of the romaine lettuce was included in the dish (not sure whether intended or otherwise), which was fine, but it looked like it hadn’t been washed, and was also bitter. But overall, a place to try if you’re looking for a healthier option in chinatown, and also if you wanna support a young hawker!

Lunch / 31 July 2018: rice bowl featuring aromatic rice topped basil beef, onsen egg, mushrooms, apple jelly with a side of salted egg sauce and lots of amusement coming from the young enterprising hawker-students who really behave like bengs. Worth a try!

Beef stew, which is braised for at least 24 hours. The meat was well flavoured and juicy, and wasn’t too stringy.

It’s always interesting to see youngsters passion in hawker scene, just like this Beng.

Hidden in Hong Lim Food Center on level one, make your way in towards the market side; as the stall hidden at the back of the front stalls. You should see his stall once you make your turn in.

He sell modernised mixed rice. Way to order here is to grab a menu on the wall (like how you make your order at Maki-San) and take the pen to tick your order. You get to choose a meal, following with vegetables and side dish, then end with your choice of sauce.

I really like his fried broccoli and would prefer if the salted egg sauce can be given more. $6
