Tomato egg, assam stingray, lemon fish. An enjoyable caifan stall as always.

A buddy ordered this to share, at my encouragement. I've raved about the sauce before. So shiok.

Really decent ytf here. It's soup mee sua specifically I don't like so I could order it here. I took the unique yam fritter again. The mushroom ball (unpictured) was delicious. The rest are my usual deep-fried stuff such as youtiao, hash brown and brinjal. Heads up both my visits the stallholders weren't the friendliest. It's even more unacceptable they're not the owners, like some popular hawkers can be, but foreign workers.

Checked out Grandma’s recipe at Punggol since i was in the neighbourhood!

This place specalises in nasi lemak! A quick scan of reviews posted showed that most ppl liked the yellow ginger chicken, hence we went for that too! The waiting time for the food was almost 30mins when we reached on a weekend afternoon as just so happens there was a bulk order of like 8 packs two customers before me.

The nasi lemak was nicely packed with everything in their own corners! The yellow ginger chicken reminds me of indo panggang the yellow chicken. To me, it is much like peranakan style chicken. The chilli here was also quite different from the typical nasi lemak chilli. It was sweeter, and I saw bits of onion slices in it too. (No comments for the achar and cucumber as I gave them away).

For the price of $5, it is slightly expensive for nasi lemak. But since we had burpplebeyond 1 for 1 (paid total $6 for two packs), price was still ok! They charge 50 cents per pack for takeaway here. So do bring your own tupperware to save on costs! We saw punggol residents bringing round tupperwares to store the food! (haha i would have done so but didnt know what kind of tupperwares they accept and decided to just not bring them)

Their fries menu looks fancy but $4 gets you normal fries and the sauce. Fortunately the portion helps justify its price. The yuzu sauce tasted exactly like yuzu.

Ordered some braised duck, celery, lala and tau pok for our late night meal to go with porridge. We just couldn't resist their braised items like braised duck and tau pok as they are always rich in flavour and goes very well with porridge.

The braised duck was soft, tender and it is particularly good with their rich and fragrant braised sauce. I liked that the tau pok braised with a distinct herbal taste - simply tasty. We also love the fresh lala that comes with some spicy flavours to add some punch to our meal.

Price varies with the choices of dishes ordered. Our meal came up to $19.30 with three bowls of porridge.

Daily special

Generous portion of pig trotters, thankfully it's boneless. The slightly sweet herbal marinade wasn't my thing though. Their beehoon got some bite, it's not the soft wet kind. Prefer the kind where the pig trotter is cooked with the beehoon but can't complain about this

Tasted like going towards strong aroma flavour and so like going instead of direct numb feeling for chili. I also saw this store before covid-19 and I really didn't like to eat mala tbh.

Just a PSA, when you add cheese it's literally one slice of processed cheese, so not very worth it at all, and it already comes with an egg normally(so not sure why I didn't get two eggs last time when I added one egg)

Dabaoed the half chicken pot ($38.80) and prepared the ingredients at home. So satisfying!!

Cycled to dabao this and it was still warm by the time I consumed it. Ordered the Smash Double Cheese Burger ($8.40) with Cheese fries (+$2.50) and Pulled Brisket Burger ($7.50) with Truffles fries (+$3.50).

The Smash Double Cheese Burger had really juicy patties, which were packed with flavour but a tad on the saltier side. It’s a good burger and is sufficient to satisfy a burger craving but there’re better ones out there (nonetheless, worth it for the price). The Pulled Brisket Burger was really flavourful too, I enjoyed it thoroughly with every bite. Would have to say this was more unique compared to the double cheese burger. The brisket was on the sweeter side and the texture was so good. Unfortunately because the brisket was cooked in sauce, the bottom of the burger disintegrated.

Fries were on the drier side, but thank goodness they were thick cut otherwise I think it might be even drier. Cheese top up was relatively worth it, the amount of cheese was generous. However those of you who aren’t fans of creamy stuff, this might end up pretty jelak!

The aroma from the Truffle fries was so strong that when I took it out from my bag, the whole dining room was filled with the smell of truffle. However, there wasn’t much truffle taste so I personally feel that you’d probably wanna give it a miss and it’s not worth topping up $3.50 for it.

Curry chicken and dishes @ $8.30

Came for the famous ahdi braised duck but it was closed by the time we reached so went to look around for other stuff and got the following dishes from the curry rice stall:
- curry chicken (02 drumsticks + potatos)
- bittergourd
- cabbage
- fried eggs with long beans
- sweet and sour pork
- 01 x White rice

The curry is quite thick and tasty while the chicken itself is quite average.

The other dishes are quite good too, like most caifan stalls.

Would want to try other stalls if I go back again.
