Soft carrot cake with some wokhei-charred bits for that contrasting crisp texture, and a good balance of sweet/ salty with generous amount of caipoh within. Will probably add on more egg next time but we loved it!

This was once a happy discovery from Grabfood. We had been exercising a wee bit of self control on not ordering it every week because it isn’t the healthiest of choice. Now I have one more reason to not order it and get my lazy ass out because.. the price of convenience is almost double😂.

Prices start at $4 if you’re eating at the food court, and I think it’s pretty worth the satisfaction. The fried chicken thigh ($5.50) is incredibly crispy and fragrance from the spices with tumeric and a distinct lemongrass flavour, while the insides were tender and juicy! And the rice - we prefer the nasi dagang for its texture, but the steam rice is equally good because it’s so fluffy and lemak.

For sides, our go-to is the Sambal Assam Sotong ($3) which usually tastes very fresh with a good bite (this round seemed to be an off day or perhaps I was a little late for dinner, as it was slightly more rubbery but it’s the first time it happened). It isn’t too spicy (may be disappointing for those who’re looking for more heat), with the addition of pineapples for sweetness. The other would be their curry mutton ($3) which are just tender cubes of delishness, and it’s not too gamey.

The mildly sour yet refreshing achar helps to cut through the richness of the dish, and the sambal balacan really packs a punch. Ambitiously mixed it with my rice and I’ve never, purposely, added it again😂 But spicy-lovers should like this!

Quite eggy and the top is extra crispy! (If you don’t like it crisp just let them know) Kueh was soft, quite liked this except it was a little too salty when I had it and no caipoh😂. Chili is shiooook.

Maddie’s Kitchen is a casual eatery with homely, affordable good food in town!

Seafood White Beehoon (Prawns & Lala $6.80-S) was decent, ingredients were fresh and there were bits of crisp fried lard. Portion seemed to be rather huge (possibly enough for 2 small eaters if you’re planning to get side dishes?). Enjoyed the french bean with minced pork ($8.80) because the dried shrimps (?) made it so darn fragrant.
Lor bak ($4) was also flavourfully braised and tender while proportion of egg vs starch of the oyster omelette ($10.80) was just right with very crisp sides. We don’t eat oysters (I KNOW), but they kindly changed to 2 giant prawns for us! There’s also prawn omelette on the menu but if I’m not wrong, it doesn’t have the starchy portion thus I tried my luck with the request😂. The accompanying chilli was shiok too! Bet the oyster version would have been fantastic.

The seafood soup was comfortingly tasty, though not as savoury as the other seafood soup that opened in Far East Plaza too - but I liked how sweet and clean tasting this was. There were mock abalone, fish maw, lala, crunchy prawns, fish slices, meatballs and vegetables, etc.

Portions of the dishes we ordered was pretty good for the price and of quality, fresh ingredients. Will be back to try the hainanese curry rice too.

Curry was flavorful but thought it was rather mild on the spiciness. The pork chop here was delish, classic local hainanese style where the sauce is a tad sweet, could be more crisp but it was fine after all the sauces and definitely juicy! Chapchye was soft and tasty, and I really enjoyed the sotong - very fresh with a nice bite but not overly chewy. Definitely will be back to brave the queue 😗

@chubtutusg brings this traditional snack tu a whole new level with interesting, unconventional flavours (their specials for the week are mango and chicken charsiew).

Even after bringing them home it was still soft and fluffy for quite awhile. I liked how they’re generous with the fillings. Preferred the coconut and gula melaka which wasn’t too sweet!

I don’t always eat duck rice but when I do, I get a bit overambitious?

Had all these to myself and it was $9. Probably not the most affordable around but it was at least satisfying. A good portion of juicy duck meat, and tender duck liver, generously drenched with the thick savory-sweet braised gravy! Their chili was pretty shiok too.

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.

The porridge/ rice here is $0.70 for the first bowl - but it’s free flow!

I liked the prawn paste chicken ($8 - S), it was crisp, juicy and fragrant! Another must order would be the fluffy chaipoh omelette ($5 - S). Greasy but as with all fantastic tasting eggs, it’s worth the calories to me. Would’ve liked more chaipoh in it, but it’s probably just a little inconsistency.

The dark sauce of the clay pot pork liver ($8 - S) was very tasty, and liver was tender, a little powdery but pretty decent (prefer Nan Zhen’s in the same hawker centre); the claypot brinjal was good though gravy was quite similar. We enjoyed the long bean sambal too - had a good spicy kick and cooked just right so it still had a nice crunch. The fried sambal lala was the least impressive of the dishes we ordered as it lacked the plumpness and sweetness that we expected from fresh clams. Enjoyed the sauce though it tasted more like those of chili crab than sambal with the addition of egg and sweetness.

First back-to-work lunch was this mazesoba from 2 months old @dailynoodlessg and I enjoyed it!

The dash of Japanese vinegar helped to enhance the flavours and whet one’s appetite. Toss well with the runny onsen egg and you’ve got a luscious creamy bowl. The noodles were good (tho it visually reminds one of maggi mee lol) - I liked how springy it was with a good bite, they were quite generous with the smoky chashu and it was tender! Overall a pretty good bowl of mazesoba for its price ($6) and I’ll definitely be back! 😋

Well this was a pretty damn good claypot porridge! Didn’t want to dive right into the most expensive $10 flower crab/ prawn/ yellow eel/ clam so I decided to try the more basic claypot porridge - Special Pork & Prawn($5/12/18) - very flavourful, I liked how the texture was just right - I can taste each individual grain without it being overly mushy or watery, and ingredients (minced pork and prawns) are fresh! It might have been a tad too salty towards the end for me but I easily finished the entire dish by myself. Generally a very enjoyable comforting dish to have - even if it’s sweltering hot today 😂

Nothing fancy, very delicious and affordable Curry Chicken Stew for only $2.80! For those who like it spicy, this is probably too mild but it’s just right for me. Quite lemak and they’re pretty generous with the ingredients for its price! Wish I had tummy space for bread to soak up the rest of the gravy 😛
