Never fails me. The prefer Nasi Lemak for me at Changi. Cracked the stallholder up this time round by singing along to her version of Semoga Bahagia.

Havent been here for almost 2years and back for nostalgic tastes. Standards remain consistent but clearly the derived utility has reduced over the years as the prices moved along with each relocation. Good for a bi-annual visit just to reminicise.

Another lardy experience. If you are a fan of bits of fried lard mixed in a puree of egg and garlic that sticks onto your kway yeow in a good gooey fashion with alot of "wok hei", you are at the right place. Standard $3 portions. Humful. Queuing is expected.

For a traditional Bak Chor Mee experience with lard and the works, always try Tai Hwa. I would always suggest that you go during the non-lunch hours as the quality is slightly better though uncle will always ensure every single bowl is well-cooked even during lunch (which explains the queue) IMHO, not the best BCM for me but clearly one of the most consistent

The broth. The tender beef slices. The kiamchye. The chilli. I will miss you

Foodie trackback today before it closes. We start with the ever so delicious and always well fried carrot cake. Nothing beats this. Honest. You have 6days more before they move to Balestier

Go for the 流沙包 and 腐皮卷. I find the other items okay. Maybe abit too much five spice powder in the siewmai and the chickfeet is the peppery version. Charsiewbao is the sweet version, less savoury. Good value but not to be compared with the hotel and restaurants clearly.

Rice flour cakes. Tasting the same since the 80s when I first had them at the V old Tiong Bahru market with zinc roofs. Chye Por still tastes as good and served in abundance unlike some other stalls today. Made up for my visit to the market today

Yummeh. Did a quick run-in an takeaway, tasting just as good as my first try last year. The environment in the cafe looks comfortable and cosy, great for a catch-up or hang-out

Must try. This place specialises in lobster porridge but the fried lotus root is yumz. Fried and coated with salted egg, it is not oily and makes a perfect appetiser or a beer snack.
