A decent bowl of homely noodles, think they are probably more popular for their cai fan here. Dumpling filling was generous with a whole prawn in each, but a pity it was a little too salty.

📍Sherwood Snack Bar
Bukit Timah Plaza B2

Went straight for the $5 portion (default’s $4) since we woke up early to come by! Can’t believe we haven’t heard of Hup Kee before this, but better late than never right? 😛 Noodles here are done the Malaysian style - tossed thoroughly with a combi of dark sauce, lard, shallot oil and chilli. Mee kia seemed to be the most popular choice among customers and for a clear reason, it was pretty springy and picked up the sauce very well. The accompanying bowl of soup came with handmade fishballs, fishcakes and stuffed tau pok. All of them are made daily with purely yellowtail fish meat and were SO GOOD - the soft texture’s everything! How rare it is to get handmade ones like these nowadays, will definitely be back for this gem.

Haven’t been to Joo Seng in a while! Food was still as comforting as we remember, but somehow it seemed to be much pricier. Get their tender braised duck if you’re here, it serves as a good pairing with the porridge. We also like the thoroughly braised beancurd!

I don’t often get soon kuehs, but I like that theirs has a more savoury filling than the usual ones. Soon kueh skin is the same as the one they use for the ku chai kueh - it’s smooth and q!

One of my favorite types of kueh is ku chai kueh! Love the kueh skin here, as it has just the right thickness and the perfect amount of chew. The fragrant ku chai filling is always generous!

You’ll probably need 2 of these to be full but it’s a shiok one. Chili packs a punch, cockles were plump, and while the broth was light, it’s flavourful in its seafood flavour. Was a little too salty the last time I tried, but it was just nice this round!

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.
