One of the best or probably, the best and most authentic jajangmyeon I’ve had locally! Heard that this generous portion of noodles were handmade and even if not, I’ve got to say that the texture was spot on. It was springy, chewy and so q! The thick sauce had a nice sweetness and came with lots of onions. Unfortunately, the minimal amount of minced pork was quite hard and dry, but heck, the sauce and noodles themselves were too good! This portion will surely fill you up, but if you want even more, there’s an option for upsize at $2. Outside of lunch times, they go at $12 a bowl - still a steal for its quality. Can’t wait to go back again to try their Jjamppong! Service was super friendly and homely as well.

A hit amongst the Burpple Tastemakers on this week's Serangoon Garden Market trawl, this stall in Serangoon Garden Market serves a winning bowl of Tau Huay ($1). It's as traditional as it can get — the beancurd is only served hot, and in a retro blue and white porcelain bowl to boot. As Tastemaker Zhihui Lim describes, the beancurd is extremely smooth and delicate, and the syrup wasn't excessively sweet. Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang says it slid down her throat, while Tastemaker Irene Arieputri declares that it blew her mind. Their only gripe is that they wished it could be served cold but hey, it'll be well worth your perspiration.

The Nasi Lemak (from $3) at this Muslim-owned stall is one of the firm favourites among the Burpple community, especially our Tastemakers. Join the queue for what many deem to be one of the freshest and tastiest nasi lemak in this part of Singapore; it's also not overly oily so you're spared that post-meal guilt. The ikan bilis here are freshly fried and go super well with the sambal. While the rice is not the most fragrant, each grain is perfectly firm and not sticky. Tastemaker Denise Ong aptly describes the smorgasboard of spot-on treats that await: "Fluffy basmati rice. Golden fried chicken wing that is not heavily coated in thick batter. A good-sized kuning fish. Crispy ikan bilis. And oh-so-sweet yummy chilli."

For stellar zi char, head on over to this popular zi char stall at Serangoon Garden Market. They have quite a cult following, and has the Burpple community's stamp of approval. Take Tastemaker Nobelle Liew's lead and order the Pumpkin Sauce with Butter Prawns ($12), a dish she declares as her favourite among the rest she tried. While it may seem pricey for four balls of prawns, she assures you that each prawn's actually pretty big, crunchy, juicy and fresh. The winning touch however has to be the sauce. Tastemaker Nobelle describes it to be "creamy and luscious, yet retaining a tad of the characteristic sandy mouthfeel root veggies have; sweet yet still slightly savoury, with a tinge of curry spice." We're sold. While you're here, also consider the Pork Knuckle ($18), which is truly value-for-money. This rendition offers a lot of meat for that price (a fraction of what most restaurants would charge) and the skin sports a good crisp.

$8. The sauce is Super yummy! Squid is grilled to perfection! Love the salad that comes with it.

$14...(added lemon butter for $1)
The fish is delicious! Fries taste good too. The whole plate is quite worth it. Chilli sauce is thick and goes very well with the meal. Will come back again.
Note to self: remember to take malt vinegar.

Very generous with the steak slices which were juicy and had a nice hint of smokiness, topped with sweet caramelised onion, tangy mustard and a bit of heat from the jalapeno, with emmental cheese and mushrooms. Picked sesame so there was a little more crunch to the chewy bagel (which is lovingly handmade). While mostly tender, certain parts of the steak was a little tough for my jaws, but I actually really enjoyed this overall. Small but flavour-packed, super filling and a satisfyingly messy affair.


Perhaps the only vegetarian option here but the overall combination of the different meatless elements was one that greatly satisfied my palate. The haloumi cheese is essentially a grilled cheese "patty" that had a slightly crisp exterior encasing a thick, gooey interior that was so cheesy and flavourful! 💖 The mushrooms were well sautéed, with a pleasant earthy note whereas the pickled capsicums added a pleasant crunch factor that was refreshing as well! Along with emmental cheese that further boosted the cheesy factor and tangy smoked mayo spread, the bagels were thick, doughy with a fluffy interior. My virgin try on sandwich bagels and I foresee myself making return trips here for more! 😋 what's more, the bagels here are all freshly baked with a variety of flavours to choose from e.g. Sesame, garlic, cheddar, rye, cinnamon raisin etc. Or just simply go for the plain one (which I did) and it was just as great! 👍🏻
