I always like Tan's Tutu Kueh for it's fragrance and lightness 😋

But according to the people there, it is same as Jia Xiang. Just that the name has changed. A bite into the Nasi lemak confirmed that it is indeed the same as Jia Xiang. The gorgeous blue pea rice, the fragrant and tender rendang chicken, the runny eggs and the sweet sambal chilli.. they added mushrooms this time round.

Well actually I haven't had mee siam for awhile and maybe I was just starving .. But oh my goodness this was amazing! Apart from the wonderful flavor, the crunchy deep fried tau pok really made it special. Don't forget to pair it with their equally awesome popiah! 😋👍

Surprisingly big portion! Besides the kaya, they put a couple pieces of butter on the top, giving it a slightly salty taste. Decent kopi, would come back for breakfast if I were in the area again. ($6.20 for the french toast set, they have steamed bread too!)

Been hearing good things about this, and I now absolutely understand why. Best Mcdonald's burger I've had in awhile, definitely worth a try! 😋👍

Still one of the best I've had, besides the usual peanut and coconut, you can now get it with chocolate too!

Amazingly crispy, fatty roast pork belly. The secret? Fattier Brazilian pork is used instead of the more commonly imported pork fron Indonesia. Young owner Joseph also hired a chef from Ipoh whom he mastered the art of roasting from. (Source: http://www.makansutra.com/stories/3/1398/TheHaiKeeSoySauceChickenRiceNoChickenFeetInheritance)

Classic, timeless, and always satisfying. Those who like a more savoury sauce will find this slightly different, doused in a sweeter soy sauce mix and topped with lotsa fried garlic. The chicken itself is pretty fab: lovely roasted skin that's not at all fatty, hiding juicy and perfectly cooked meat. I won't call it the best chicken rice ever, but there's just something really comforting and nostalgic about the store, hidden from sight in the old Katong Shopping Centre. That, and everyone knows I can't resist them free soup and achar 😉
