Saw a long queue here when we passed by the last time and made a mental note to come back for it. The Signature Meesua ($5.80) that comes with scallops seemed popular, but we got this bowl to satisfy our fishball cravings. Also decided to top up a dollar for pork livers in the soup since we heard good things, and so glad we did.

The mee kia used here is a flatter kind, and was very springy with a good bite. Chilli was punchy, while the soup was sweet and flavourful from the added minced meat. Fishballs were fresh, but I loved the livers the most - they were well marinated, crunchy and cooked superbly well. PS. Orh-Kee’s open 24 hours, so that means you can have suppers here too!

Was in the area and remember seeing a number for posts about this zi char place and their egg hor fun! We got the medium portion, but they do have the small at $6 and large at $15. The portion feels a little smaller than normal medium sizes, but we enjoyed it! Wok hei was pretty strong and ingredients were fresh. Lots of tasty and eggy zhup to go along.

Unlike their other bowls that use a mix of chili and vinegar, ordering this signature will get you mee tai mak tossed in a glorious amount of pork lard oil. It’s fragrant and very tasty, despite how plain it looks! You’ll be recommended to not add any additional chilli sauce or vinegar and to taste before adding chilli padi to your liking. We didn’t, as it comes as good as it is with crunchy bits of pork lard, plus handmade meatball, her giao, her chiok and veggie roll. The handmade pieces were all seasoned very well and had a good bite. We missed this the first time we came around noon on a Saturday, so it’s probably best to come earlier or drop by on the weekdays. That aside, you will have to be prepared to wait, ours took about half an hour+.

Other than the stronger flavoured ku chai, haebi hiam and bak kwa, you’ll also find the classic and beetroot (vegan) options. Good to enjoy these before moving to the stronger ones. We managed to try all the flavours except Carrot ($1.60), a vegetarian option, as it wasn’t available that day. Remember to reserve your kuehs before heading down!

First tried One Kueh at a Time when they were back in Berseh Food Centre a few years ago. Happy to see them back and have a space of their own now. It’s quite a journey really, so it’s probably best if you’re driving over or purchasing in bulk to maximise your trip.

These were pricey for its size but tasty. My favourite is the ku chai! It’s very fragrant with the added savouriness from the bits of haebi fried in. The haebi hiam and bak kwa are their new additions. Haebi hiam had a light heat, while the bak kwa is more sweet. Their soon kueh skins were thin and smooth.

If you’re dropping by, please remember to make a reservation for the kuehs you would like to avoid any disappointments! You can reach them via WhatsApp at 97956119 or DM their Instagram.

Have been wanting to try Xin Yuan Ji but always get deterred by its queues 😂 Opted for no milk for my bowl and though it was already tasty, I liked it even more with milk for that extra sweetness and creaminess. Fish slices were firm and fresh, was a comforting bowl.

Not the crispy sort but pretty decent. Ordering is at its counter!

Family has been coming back here for a long time. It’s not the most affordable bowl of noodles, but you get a good variety of ingredients like tau pok, chicken, fishcakes and potato chunks. While the chicken slices could be more tender, the highlight for us is their light and flavourful broth. It’s not oily, so it’s very drinkable and good to have soaked up with the strips of tau pok. For a stronger kick of heat, add their chilli!

Was a half an hour wait, so we went straight for the bigger $8 portion! 😂 It’s a similar style to Simon Road Oyster Omelette, with a good ratio of crispiness to gooeyness, but I kinda prefer Simon Road’s a touch more for it’s a bit more savoury. Oysters were fresh and came in a good number, and the chilli helped in lifting the flavours.

Heard that Ah Chuan Oyster’s opening hours are sometimes by luck, but when they are open, they have a steady queue. Aunty was very friendly, but you’ve got to be prepared to wait.

Mum has been a frequent customer at their Bugis stall, but it’s my first time trying! This was very impressive for its price - just $2.50 and you get a chunky piece of freshly fried fish, along with an egg and bits of pork belly, ngoh hiang and fish cake. Gravy was well seasoned, had a good consistency and wasn’t too thick. The counter has chilli, vinegar and minced garlic for you to add too based on your preference. Star of the bowl was the crunchy, tender and meaty piece of fried fish, so would definitely top up 50 cents more for their Fried Fish Lor Mee ($3) for more fish next time!

Was craving for prawn noodles and googling led us to this place! We went slightly after lunch hours but the queue was still going strong. That said, they cook quickly, so we didn’t have to wait too long to dig in. Though their broth is comparatively lighter to other bigger names, it was flavourful, hearty and we liked how you get the prawns’ natural sweetness. Similar to the Prawn Noodle Dry ($4.50), this came with a generous helping of fried pork lard chunks on top.

We liked the soup version more, but the dry was quite nice to have too, though the chilli could be punchier. They are very generous with the crispy fried lard and the good sized prawns were peeled for easy eating.
