Quite surprise and unexpected can still able to get the price of $4.80 Chinese mixed rice in orchard area. The one in food opera is overpriced though!

Not too shabby, enjoyed this carrot cake! Added on extra egg as usual, and the sides were even crisped (despite the colour it wasn’t charred!). I liked the presence of caipohs, especially since my recent caitaokueh experiences didn’t have those😕. The kueh was soft but not too soft; and portion was quite generous so I don’t think I would be able to finish this entirely on my own. Chili was shiok and rather potent to me.


Black Friday became Black Weekend, and now even food court got sale. They had the noodle set as well as the fried rice set. Each only $5.50. Food court was super crowded even at 3pm.

Cutlet was as good as ever. Well marinated and crispy. The vege was not bad. Sauce was savory and flavorful.

Been eyeing this cutlet speciality stall for a while. And it didn’t disappoint. I must have gone at a good time, cos everything was freshly fried and hot. The cutlet was well marinated and extremely tender. The fried mushrooms, enoki and fish cake were excellent as well. The gravy for the noodle was delicious and flavorful. I give it 👍🏻👍🏻

Loads of liao gave a very good first impression. Digging in further revealed ample gravy. The flavors were on the heavy side, which really suited me. Soup was too peppery. This was an excellent bowl of BCM. I walked past it for years and never knew what I was missing. Don’t be like me.

The stalls have generic names (like ‘Chicken Rice’, ‘Prawn Noodles’, ‘Yong Tau Foo’, ‘Cutlet Speciality’, ‘Fried Carrot Cake’, ‘Korean Cuisine’, etc), so that stall holders can be replaced without much drama. This also means they cannot induce brand name hawker stalls to come - a strategy adopted by Food Republic at its 3 food courts (ION Orchard, Wisma Atria, and Isetan). No wonder the quality of the food is at least one notch below the others. - the food at the ‘Indian Cuisine’ stall is downright horrific, and choice limited; avoid it! On top of that, seating place is more limited, AND must be shared with brands that are not in the food court (SaladStop, ToriQ), whereas these brands do have their own seats and tables at Tangs and ION, respectively. But, given the prime position of Takashimaya, at meal times this is always packed solid; more than once I have seen customers fights over seats. Along with the Lucky Plaza food court(s), this is probably the worst on Orchard Road, although the Far East malls are positioned to be more downmarket, so that is less of a surprise.
