Celebrity Korean Restaurant I had high hopes for the food quality on my first visit to kim Chi Korean restaurant . The beef bulgogi and the bibimbap were enjoyable but not exceptional :) and the side dishes were limited in variety. I find the beef bulgogi from the now defunct sarangae korean Restaurant ( previously at king鈥檚 acarde ) to be unforgettable and authentic and the bibimbap from 8korean at Shaw ( as part of their promotional lunch menu) to be really exceptional. So Kim Chi Korean didn鈥檛 manage to impress me much and the food was quite laden with msg so much so that I felt constantly thirsty after my meal .

Gye-ran Kimchi Cheese Jeon (Egg Kimchi Cheese Pancake), Sogogi Miyeok-Guk (Beef Seaweed Soup- Not in Picture) "Service" in Korea comes in the form of free sides- to get a rough glimpse of that head over to Kimchi Korean Restaurant where you get #1 quality side dishes (refillable at the self service kiosk). #2 To end things on a sweet note, grab a free cup of Korean coffee as well (you'd get the iconic yellow satchel mix- to all familiar with the S.Korean food culture). On to the mains, our beef seaweed soup was commendable for $13.90++; this was as well for the Egg omelette kimchi pancake (expect entirely eggs aka protein without any flour batter). With an extensive menu, it keeps one interested to return and try the wide variety of Korean offerings here.

My Mind is Blown The Pig Organ Soup 鐚粈姹 ($4 small, $6 large) was not peppery, & absolutely crazy tasty without being porky. I was glad that you can refill your bowl with soup for as many times as you want, because I couldn't get enough of this soup. I had the large portion to share, & it filled me up very decently. When this is served to you, the soup is filled to the brim that you won't know what's inside until you dig around. Don't underestimate how much ingredients there are inside - pork slices, intestines, meatballs, liver, etc. General consensus is that a large bowl is too much for 1 to finish. 馃挼 Cash only 鈽锔 Al fresco seats only 馃枼 Like them on FB, get 10% off!

Delicious & Cheap I've never been here, but so glad I did. This is apparently the legit original stall that you should be visiting; while I haven't been to the other one, I definitely know I'm coming back here again. Not only is it crazy value for money (you also get 10% off if you like them on Facebook & show it to them when you make payment), but super freaking delicious. The humble bowl of Braised Pork Rice 鍗よ倝楗 ($1.80) is packed with flavours. I couldn't resist tucking in, despite not actually being a fan of fatty meat. This, & the Preserved Vegetables 姊呰彍 ($2.50), both surprised me with their comforting flavours. 馃挼 Cash only 鈽锔 Al fresco seats only 馃枼 Like them on FB, get 10% off!

Hot 2 Trot This bowl of braised pig trotter is downright delectable, and I鈥檓 pretty sure Authentic Mun Chee Kee are pretty proud to...trot them out. Flavorful sauce? Check? Well cooked, delicious and tender braised pork? Check. A properly stewed layer of fat and skin that envelopes the meat, and melts slowly in your mouth leaving a delightful, slightly sticky feeling on your lips and tongue? Also check. I鈥檓 telling ya, these braised pig鈥檚 trotters has me trottin鈥 cross town just to taste 鈥榚m. Also, DEEZ NUTZ.

For Underrated Ma La Xiang Guo Devoted Ma La lovers can add this spot to their list of late-night eats! You Ma You La, a corner stall at this S-11 Food House in Ang Mo Kio operates till 11p, serves piquant and "very very thoroughly fried" Ma La Xiang Guo, according to Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang. An avid fan of ma la xiang guo, she says that residents in the area are lucky they don't need to travel all the way to Chinatown for a good bowl! Choose from a wide variety of ingredients, and then select your spice level. If you like a good kick, follow Wei Zhi's lead and go for Medium spice, where the "heat and spice was just nice, not too numbing at all". She also recommends ordering the konjac jelly, an ingredient not commonly seen in ma la stalls. Note that you will be charged by the weight of your ingredients and not the number of items selected. Pro tip: They are generous with their seasonings, so be sure to request for less salt! Avg Price: $5 per person Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang

Ma La Xiang Guo [Price by Weight] My fate with Ang Mo Kio recently has just been sky high, and when in AMK, I couldn't just not get one of my fav Ma La Xiang Guo around! Although pricier, it has been consistently good. Ingredients are always very thoroughly fried in its combination of spices. Flavours here are stronger and on the saltier end but that's exactly what makes it so shiok. Remember to request for less salt if you prefer! #BurppleAMKHawkers

Ma La Xiang Guo Recommended by @cweizhi, this well-hidden ma la place is surprisingly good. While it's on the pricier side, the spicy kick is really spot on and they have a pretty wide range of ingredients to choose from. They are definitely generous with the garlic and peppercorn and yes, I always find myself coming back here again and again despite telling myself to move on and find a new gem.

Minced Meat Noodle ($5) 猸愶笍 3.5/5 猸愶笍 馃嵈While queuing for the famous curry rice, we decided to join the queue for #bachormee as well. It was a >20 mins wait and was slightly disappointing (maybe cause we had high expectations). While the ingredients were tasty, overall, the dish was a tad too oily. The soup was nice but very sweet (was there sugar?). We鈥檇 say to just stick to eating the curry rice 馃槄 馃搷鍗楀洯, next to Loo Hainanese Curry Rice, 71 Seng Poh Road (Tiong Bahru)

Dipping the pork cutlet into the curry was the perfect flavour combination 鈿狅笍 Unmistakable because of the constant queue. The queue moves quite fast though and if one doesn鈥檛 want to queue, try off peak hours when it鈥檚 quieter 馃搷Loo鈥檚 Hainanese Curry Rice, #01-49, 71 Seng Poh Road (#tiongbahru)

Hainanese Curry Rice($5.20) The store has a variety of side dishes for you to choose from, you will be definitely spoilt with choices. However there were three side dishes that caught my eye and they were simply irreistable. I had the Hainanese Pork Chop, Sotong and cabbage combination, drizzled with their in-house Hainanese Curry sauce. Pork Chop, well seasoned, crispy and tender at the same time. Curry sauce, sweet and a little spicy. Sotong, fresh, soft and chewy. It's the perfect combination when you have a little of everything in your mouth. It's no wonder customers are willing to queue, stand in the hot sun and onto the road, just to get their hands on this plate of awesomeness.
