Hawker Fare!

Hawker Fare!

Truly hidden gems: unknown, unpopular yet fantastic food.

Was blown away by the portion of the trotters— this can easily feed 2 people! Meat was super tender and clean (no hair spotted!) while the braising sauce was sufficiently salty. Would have been the best if it had come with some mushrooms and stronger star anise flavour, but hey, at $6.50, this is one of the solid ones I’ve tried in Singapore.

Kinda disappointed with the starchy, overcooked meepok here. I heard the kway teow version is so much better- will give it a try next time. Other than that, chilli was on point (ask for extra!) and the soup was super flavourful. Found the taste profile kinda similar to the Simpang Bedok outlet.

Came by on a Saturday morning just before they opened and there was no queue (prolly because of the new DORSCON announcement), but heard the queue could be really bad during lunch period. Ingredients were fresh and generous, and we really like how al dente the noodles were. Our only gripe was the lack of prawn-y and wok hei flavour. Still a decent plate of hokkien mee.

My first time eating min jiang kueh cone! I used to buy some near Holland Village Market, but never found one with ""flavour"". It was nicely done— crispy while a bit chewy. I can imagine how addictive it is to dip it in tea/coffee for breakfast.

Soft yet firm, the hand-made fish balls and meat balls are really good! The broth is kept light and simple, saving the spotlight for the fish and meat balls. Will return for this.

It’s not easy to find stewed duck in hawker centres, and I’m glad to give this a try. Duck was really clean with barely any smell. Meat was tender and well-marinated. Although the soy sauce looks thick, it’s not as salty (in a good way)- didn’t feel super thirsty after eating this. Might not be cheap considering the location, but this stall deserves more love for its quality of food.

Location: Empress Market #01-106

Although the wok hei wasn't strong, I like how flavourful the stock was thanks to the fresh la la clams and lard. Noodle was al dente and evenly coated with the broth. For the price, the portion was pretty good and they were generous with the ingredients like deep-fried sio bak, prawns and lala clams.

Curry was not the strongest I've tried, but adequately spicy. Chicken was tender and was well soaked in the curry gravy. Quite a pleasant set to have if you're dining alone.

Please note that the set only consists of rice and chicken curry.

Although it lacks the assam punch I was looking for, the curry was enjoyable to drink. The huge pieces of tiger prawns were fresh and crunchy. Wish there were more prawns considering the hefty price tag.

Sambal was addictive, especialy after adding a dash of lime. Somewhat similar to hae bee hiam, but less hae bee flavour. The pork was pretty good with a hint of prawn paste flavour although need more effort to chew.

Easily one of the better fried oysters around. My first time having it 1.5 years ago was rather disappointing as it was too greasy. But this time round, it was nicely crispy. Le bf who usually avoids oyster in fried oyster / oyster omelette was pretty impressed by how fresh the oysters were.

This possibly tops my list of favourite hokkien noodle in Singapore. Might not come with the most wok hei, but it ticks off al the features i'm looking for: umami stock, qq noodle and soupy base. Portion is pretty satisfying too! Some people will question why they never put sambal or lard in it, but I always prefer simpler ingredients done right.
