Stumbled on this delicious roast meats stall at Golden Mile Hawker Centre while searching for Yaloh Herbal Duck Rice, which later we found out that it closed down. There was a constant queue and the meats were finishing, so we reckon it must be good.

Ordered the char siew, roasted pork rice (SGD5; they have a SGD4 option too)
The pork had a crunchy skin (we loved it) and tender, well salted meat which went well with the white rice and gravy.
The char siew was delicious too, just that the meat to fat ratio was not to my liking. I would prefer a more lean char siew and apparently we can request for a leaner cut (heard the person after me ordering it haha). The char on the meat however was perfect and what I like was the sauce was not too sweet.
Will not specifically travel all the way here for this, but if I was in the vicinity looking for food, this stall will be one of my options.
PS: The ah balling peanut soup stall on the left seems popular too, alas we were too full.

This stall at Whampoa Hawker Centre sells one of the best mince meat noodle that I have tasted so far.
For $4, there is so much ingredients (mince meat, sliced meat, meatball, wanton)and the noodles are handmade, not like the type that you get from a typical mince meat noodle. The texture is a on the softer side but it is just nice for me.
Queue moves quite fast as there are 2 'stations' :)
Will surely come back again to try their other selections.

Wanted to try this for awhile now after hearing of raving reviews, so decided to try it out today.
Expected a long queue but surprisingly it wasn't. Ordered the claypot hokkien mee at $10 for 2 pax.
When the food came, I was first drawn to the deep fried pork belly and then the amount of other ingredients in the claypot. There was squid, prawns, clams, and meat mixed with the noodles in seafood broth.
The most important thing for me in hokkien mee is the broth. It needs to have the wok hei taste and prawn taste has to be distinct. Furthermore, it has to be thick, but not till like lor mee texture. Alas, this broth to me was bland and only after adding in the sambal only did it have some kick to it. I was kind of disappointed as I expected more flavour from the broth.
Would I come back again? Most probably not. Maybe only to try the other hokkien mee at the opposite market.

Specially woke up early on Sunday and dragged my partner out of bed to try this famous bak chor mee. The last time I was there, I queued for 20 mins before I gave up as lunch time is just too short. When we reached (about 10.30am), there was already a queue though shorter and after 15 mins, we got our noodles. I ordered the $6 while she had the $5. The qq noodles were accompanied by meatballs, pork liver, minced meat, wantons, tender pork slices and a piece of fried fish. One of the more worth it bak chor mee around :)

Springy 'meatballs' (blend of yellowtail fish, pork and dongcai) from Redhill Block 85 stall to accompany my meepok for breakfast this morning :)

It's been awhile since I posted something so let me start again with something mouthwatering...this has been one of the best prawn noodles that I have tasted so far in Singapore. For $5, you get 4 large prawns, generous slices of pork and fish paste and the soup is heavenly! The rich taste of the broth hits you from the first mouthful right to the last. It is a hidden find if you are working near Jurong Port.

Quest for the best bak chor mee continues at Ah Hoe. They have a few branches; the one I tried was at Clementi Ave 2. The noodles were springy and qq, with a whole lot of mushrooms, minced & sliced meat, fish cake and meat balls to accompany the dish. I like my food spicy, hence the cili padi sprinkled on top.

Dinner at Redhill Market has always been good, from the leehsienloong made famous fried chicken wings to this hokkien mee. There was enough wok hei and plenty of ingredients in the noodle. Only if they can give more of the sambal :)

The mee siam from Salam Kita is one of the best I have tasted (besides Old School Delight). The gravy was thick and flavourful, and the sambal hits all the right spots. This stall closes early, normally before 12.30pm, so have to rush there if one wants to order it.

Bedok Block 85 Xing Ji Rou Cou Mian. Broth was awesome for a rainy day. Better than its neighbour IMO.

Have been having this lor mee since I was a kid. It has been nearly 20 years and the taste is still consistent. A great way to end the long weekend back home :)
