Ordered hawkerman last night - popiah with chilli, chicken floss with fries, fried chicken wing, yuan Yang carrot cake, lala hokkien mee, seafood lor mee. The flavours were interesting, but they didn't WOW us. The carbonara yuanyang carrot cake was nicer to me than the normal flavours. And we all loved the chilli of the lala hokkien mee (the putien chilli kind but slightly spicier). Popiah had tooooo much veg for me (I'm a non veg eater), but the added chilli makes it easier to eat. Fried chicken wing was not the spicy KFC kind. So I think I still prefer KFC/A&W 🤭 (My lesson learnt was that preordering food 3 days in advance does not guarantee that you will get your food on time. I was on the help centre msging many diff assistants to get assistant on when a rider will be assigned to my order. It was only when I started enquiring whether I could change it to a pick up order and get my delivery fee refunded then suddenly a rider was assigned 😂 another lesson learnt is that self collection pick up is free I should just opt for that the next time) #burpple #burpplesg #foodpanda #foodpandasg #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg #whatsgoodhere #sgfoodie

Unimpressed with the dish, Hokkien mee definitely wasn’t as good as those at hawker centre. It has wok hei but tasted a little bland, hence giving it a charred feeling but not tasty. Fried chicken was okay.

Requested to exclude squid from my hokkien mee and it came with generous amount of clams and prawn. This was surprisingly good, way better than expected with generous amount of clams, wok-hei and chilli. I usually prefer to get my hokkien mee from hawker centres as I think it's more fragrant and taste better so I wasn't putting any high hopes when I ordered hokkien mee from a restaurant》$9.90

white clams, prawns and squid

As the name suggests, the 'All-In / All-Included', is a sampler platter for the undecided, or those who wish to try a bit of everything.
.
Good old-fashioned, traditional Ah Boy Hokkien Popiah. A thin chewy wheat skin Popiah wrap tightly holds 7 generous fillings of tender daikon radish, soft shredded egg, crunchy lettuce, crisp bean sprouts, garlic, coriander, and finely chopped peanuts.
.
Drizzled with a thick sweet sauce, and your choice of add-on chili. This place is halal, so there's no use of pork lard. Has a satisfiying crunch to texture, with bold savoury sweet flavour.
.
The classic 60s Hokkien Mee has yellow egg noodles and rice vermicelli noodles stir-fried with eggs, squid, deshelled prawns / shrimp, bean sprouts, fish sauce, garlic, and a rich prawn / shrimp stock, served garnished with fried shallots and a lime wedge.
.
A wet, gooey, delicious mess, with easy-to-eat, soft chewy textures, it carries good smoky aroma, and a lovely savoury sweet crustacean flavour.
.
Loved the Citrus Plum Watermelon, with its chilled, fresh, juicy cubes of succulent fruity sweet watermelon, dressed in a sharp sour zesty tangy sauce of sour plum juice. Excellent palate cleanser, so refreshing.

Traditional snack transformed into a sweet delight
.
Coconut ice-cream and durian puree wrapped in delicate popiah skin, topped with strips of jackfruit and crushed peanuts
.
The light and refreshing coconut ice-cream compliment the strong flavour of the durian. And surprisingly, they went well together with the popiah skin
.
Lastly, the jackfruit strips and peanut bits gave a nice chewiness bite and crunchiness to the overall dessert

Yuan Yang Carrot Cake - Carbonara style with turkey bacon and XO sauce carrot cake. A rather interesting take and taste wise was quite good. Tenderfresh Signature Fried Half Spring Chicken - served with coleslaw and fries. Warong Kim’s La La Hokkien Mee - White clams, prawns and sotong. The portion was rather small and flavour wise it lacked of the wok hei.

Venue: SingPost Basement 1
Cost: $4.90
Dish: Skinny Popiah

Description: Crispy Chicken Skin being sprinkle on TOP of the individual piece of popiah. Pouring of a thick layer of salted egg sauce that looks like over-flowing in the picture.

Is a fusion food that the chef 👨‍🍳 thought of using salted egg to be the sauce instead of our usual sweet sauce for popiah dips 😋

Rate: 3.5/5 (Can share w groups of 4)

To celebrate Singapore’s birthday, it’s time to jiak some local delights in a comfortable air conditioned eatery at Hawkerman.
For the both of us, we had difficutly deciding what to order. Thus, we decided to order the Bao Ka Liao sharing platter ($32.90)- serves 2 pax.
The Bao Ka Liao sharing platter comes together with various items such as:
1️⃣ Tenderfresh Signature Fried Half Spring Chicken
2️⃣ Warong Kim’s Hokkien Mee
3️⃣ Ah Boy’s Hokkien Popiah
4️⃣ XO Carrot Cake
5️⃣ Salted Egg Crispy Chicken
6️⃣ Citrus Plum Watermelon
7️⃣ Kimchi Coleslaw with fried muah chee

Personally, I feel that it is worthwhile trying this platter and I especially like their Salted egg crispy chicken and their citrus plum watermelon was really refreshing to end our meal with.

I will be excited to try the other items in their menu during my next visit 📍 Hawkerman [Singapore Post Centre, #B1-128/129] 🚇 Paya Lebar MRT
