Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre has reopened! And I’m glad this stall has reopened too as it’s run by two elderly ladies. I was afraid they would retire but am truly glad they didn’t. They have an assortment of fried yong tau foo to complement their well fried mee/kueh teow/bee hoon and this very tasty old school laksa. Each yong tau foo is freshly made and fried to perfection. The laksa curry is just spicy enough enough for those who prefer it less spicy and to those who love it more spicy just add their chilli sauce. Others who prefer the fried mee etc order it with addition of the yong tau foo or just plain which is good too. Warning - food may be sold out by late morning. Am certain when they close for the week. Likely Mondays.

Long before kaya toast bread is this steamed bread. Now that’s the kaya butter or kaya peanut steamed bread. The sweet smell of steaming bread will hit your nostrils the moment the steamer is brought in front of you. The steaming hot bread is fluffy and tasty. Try it if you haven’t. It’s different from the toast bread.

Reviewed this stall’s bak chor mee here and it was yummy. So try the laksa and am impressed. Really old school style of laksa with very lemak laksa gravy which has dried shrimps as base. Cockles are fresh and I love the medium size tau pok too. At $3.50 it’s worth every cent.

First of all a square roti prata is rare. On top of that it’s super crispy even after I’d added the curry. The drumstick is definitely local as it’s small and it’s tender. Hence to me it’s a very good prata meal. Much better than the one in Jalan Kayu in my opinion. Worth the drive here. Heard it’s crowded during breakfast and lunch. Fortunately I was here after lunch. Hence no crowd. Even tried the fish curry and it’s great too.

This is the only fishballs and meatballs noodle stall here in Bukit Merah view food centre and it’s good. All balls are handmade. Fishballs are crunchy to the nite and the meatballs are well marinated with bits of dry fish used. The noodles are well cooked and chilli sauces well mixed. Can have small bowl of $3 and still get meatballs. Yummy.

This stall has a variety of Cantonese porridge. However chef will make if you request and he has the ingredients like this fish belly and pork porridge. You have to be patient as the chef cooks each porridge individually unlike the mass produced type. Ingredients are freshly added hence each porridge tastes. And if you have ppl who don’t like porridge the fried bee hoon is equally popular. Good fried bee hoon with smooth creamy porridge = yummy!

A simple dinner at Yan is always a delight. Ordered the claypot rice with 2 hours’ notice and it’s just a simple yet tasty meal. The steamed fresh prawns were always a refreshing start. The prawns were sweet in taste and firm in texture. Overall it’s a delicious and filling dinner.

This stall (#02-01 at Hainanese Village Market & Food Centre) has perpetual long queue unless it’s sold out. The stallholders used good quality dark sauce to braised the duck and cook the rice too. This traditional style of cooking and it’s reasonably priced food items made the stall very popular amongst lunch crowd. The meat is tender and tasty as one can smell the good dark sauce used. An interesting item is a big bowl of sambal chilli sauce with lots of ikan billis used by all customers not to eat the duck but to mixed it with the rice! There’s another sour chilli sauce for the duck meat. This is really a great way to eat duck rice. Yummy X 3!

Definitely the better satay bee hoon stalls in Singapore. Very tasty thick gravy with fresh ingredients of cockles, pig liver, pork slices and cuttlefish. Due to the thick slices of ingredients the overall eating experience is super yummy.

This shop used to be opposite Great World City. It’s roast meat is deliciously great. Owner roasts the meat with charcoal giving it a great taste. Must try to believe unless you have remembered them before.

Just for $3 and I get this bowlful of fishballs, meatballs minced meat and fish cake slides. It’s cheap because it no good? NO WAY! It’s better than some stalls selling for the same price but less ingredients. It’s a tummy yummy 😋 😋 😋

Definitely an old school style of steaming with lots of fried pork lard bits. Fresh fish head steamed with bean paste. Only setback is fish head gets cold fast because there’s no warmer. But eating it just out of the kitchen is really great. Tender meat with crunchy lard bits made the mouthful of fish belly tasty.
