I recently discovered 2nd Gen Foods, a noodle stall located at Clementi that serves a pretty good plate of Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodle. The Hokkien Mee here is the wetter style that I like, with the noodles soaking up the essence of the flavourful prawn broth, and complemented by sambal chilli on the side which packs a solid punch!

Grill & Bar is a new concept by Kofuku Ramen & Donburi located at WCEGA Plaza that serves a variety of Western and Wok Hey Fried Rice dishes.

The most memorable dish was definitely the Mala Spring Chicken! The chicken itself was juicy and tender, while the added fragrance from the Mala seasoning powder gave this dish an additional oomph! A unique combination that worked really well!

This was a really good plate of Orh Lua! The egg is fried till really crispy with a slight wok hei taste, and comes with fresh and plump oysters! Love the tangy chilli sauce too. Sinfully good!

Found another good prawn mee place to satisfy my cravings! Love the robust broth, plus the fresh prawns and pork lards too in my bowl of Classic Prawn Noodle! They have a variety of other prawn mee options too, including the Penang style version which I will be trying next. Look out for my review!

I have always wanted to try the fried chicken wings from this stall after seeing so many good reviews and I wasn’t disappointed when I finally tried it!

There was a long queue on the night of my visit and I waited around 20 mins for my food and I must say it was well worth the wait! The fried chicken was delicious with crispy skin and juicy meat, while the rice was really fragrant! The chilli sauce was solid too, goes so well with the savoury taste of the fried chicken batter! They sell the fried chicken wings individually too at $1.40 per piece.

People who know me knows that I’m a huge wanton mee lover, and Hock Kee Wanton Noodle is one of the stalls that i’d definitely recommend you to try!

With a history of over 40 years, the current owner Mr Ong has been using the same recipe passed down from his father in cooking the wanton noodles! It has that old school taste that i really like, with super springy noodles, and drenched with a mixture of savoury seasoning and spicy homemade chilli sauce!

Do you like mee siam? If you a fan of this particular dish like i am, be sure to check out Hup Hup that’s located at Blk 80 Circuit Road Market & Food Centre!

I had high hopes for their mee siam as they were awarded TOP 10 in Singapore, and they totally deserve that accolade! The main highlight for me was the gravy which had fresh coconut milk in it, and tasted really appetising with a well-balanced combination of sweet, tangy and spicy! If you’re not a fan of mee siam, fret not as they also sell lor mee and laksa, which were both yummy as well! In addition, all their dishes are priced at $3/$3.50, really cheap and good! 👍

Throwback to happier makan-OUT days with the claypot rice from New Lucky Claypot Rice, a Michelin Bib Gourmand awarded stall located at Holland Drive Market & Food Centre.

The rice is cooked over charcoal stoves, so do expect a long waiting time during peak hours (Pro Tip: call them and order in advance to save on waiting time). Love the slightly charred and crispy rice crust topped with tender and juicy chicken! Elevate the taste further by mixing in sesame oil and dark sauce! Generous serving includes ingredients like Chinese sausages and salted fish too!

That said, they are currently only available for takeaway because of the circuit breaker rule, so do continue to support them and other local F&B businesses during this trying period through takeaway or food delivery services.

For something heavier on the palate, you can go for the Signature Fresh Lala Pasta which is very al dente or Fresh Lala in Homemade Garlic Butter Sauce (which comes with garlic bread). Both are drenched in a garlic butter sauce that’s so creamy and rich, with an addictive umami flavour!

Do you love lala (clams)? WaWa has got you covered with their variety of affordable (all priced under $10) lala specialties. Live clams are stored in display tanks at the store, scooped up and cooked upon order, so freshness is guaranteed!

For something lighter on the palate, you can go for the Signature Fresh Lala Soup (M-$5.90, L-$7.90) which was light yet flavourful, with choice of either tang hoon or bee tai Mak. Alternatively, the Fresh Lala Tasty Porridge is also a good choice with the subtle flavour of the porridge allowing the natural sweetness of the clams to shine!

Tried the prawn mee from this popular stall in Toa Payoh area recently, and it was pretty good! You get a pretty substantial portion for $5, and the noodles tasted really good after mixing it up with the savoury concocted sauce! Prawns were fresh too and the soup by the side was rich and flavourful! Will definitely be back again if i’m in the area and need a good prawn mee fix for dinner / supper!
