Eddy's is seriously one of our favourite stalls for lunch at Hong Lim Food Centre. This time, we decided to try the plain aglio olio with chicken chop! The chicken chop is still great - thick slabs of chicken which are freshly-grilled to give a slight char on the outside and topped with black pepper to give additional flavour. The pasta was prepared Al dente and it was hence a little hard; however, the serving of pasta is much more generous than it looks from this photo.

Eddy's gives a serving of brown sauce (not in photo) but we couldn't make out what it is because the sauce was really dilute. It looked like the kind of gravy usually added to mashed potatoes! Would have been better if the sauce were thicker but the sauce is not essential for the dish as the grilled chicken as it is is tasty enough. Furthermore, it is a little strange to have aglio olio with your pasta drenched in sauce.

Dish is a steal at $8 and do expect a queue at lunchtime!

We decided to satisfy our craving for cheap & good western food by paying a visit to Eddy's at Hong Lim Food Centre! The stall is on the second floor of the hawker centre and you can find it at unit #02-52!

The laksa aglio olio with chicken chop is one of the stall's best-selling items and for $8, it is quite a steal! The chicken chop is freshly grilled and made-to-order and each piece is pretty thick, but tender at the same time! A lot of effort is put into the chicken chop as the chef individually seared each piece using a blowtorch before plating it. This gives the exterior of the chicken a pretty nice charred taste that paired really well with the black pepper. Furthermore, Eddy's pasta incorporates a little Asian cooking as the stall covers the chicken chop with a generous serving of hae bee hiam (dried shrimp with chilli), which adds a nice (and bearable) spice to the chicken chop!

The other highlight of the dish is the laksa paste, which was much more concentrated than expected and you can definitely taste your laksa broth in the paste. The stall also uses spaghetti for the pasta although we felt the serving of pasta could be bigger.

Enjoyed the thick biscuit base and the soft egg curd filling!

We bought fishball noodles from Hong Xing Handmade Fishball and Meatball Noodles (#02-30) today! This is the medium-sized portion ($5) and comes with 5 fishballs and 3 meatballs. The balls are clearly handmade, as seen from their irregular shapes. Also, there are fewer meatballs than fishballs because their meatballs are more expensive (and popular too!). The fishballs are pretty light and you cannot really taste the fish paste; however, you can taste the pork a lot more clearly in the meatballs.

However, our favourite was the noodles that came along with the Fishball soup. We ordered Mee kia today and Hong Xing's Mee kia are thin and rather springy (or kiu), which we really love. That being said, you should eat the noodles pretty soon otherwise they will start to clump together and become really dry. 😱 The stall adds quite a generous serving of chilli, which provides flavour and gets rid of that slight "yellow noodle" taste too. Do let the stall know in advance if you are not a fan of spicy food!

Hong Xing is only open until around 2 pm or so, so you can only have it for breakfast or lunch. Do note that the queue can be pretty long though, so be prepared to budget additional time for lunch if you have set your mind on ordering their Fishball noodles!

Duck was not tender, rice quality wasn’t great. We usually finish our food because we don’t like wasting food, but for this we struggled to even have half of it.
