The fried eggs and tofu from D’Penyetz was so good! This heaping mountain consisted of freshly fried tofu wrapped in a sinful layer of deep fried egg. The tofu was really crisp but soft on the inside. The fried egg was quite reminiscent of those deep fried Thai omelettes. And when you pair the two you get a really amazing combination, especially when paired with their sweet peanut sauce.

The mee hoon keuh from @greenviewcafe is one of the best around! Went back recently and they now have a mala version, which was really good. The mala sauce was very savoury but not excessively spicy, and they were very generous with the meats and other ingredients (including luncheon meat!)

Hidden gem (sort of) at Ang Mo Kio! The prawn noodles from Penang Delights was super umami and flavourful. The broth is a little sweeter than the usual prawn mee but I don’t mind it. The chilli sauce added a nice kick as well. Also worth trying is their penang lor mee — slightly less herbal-tasting and a bit sweeter, but still really good.

Uggli Muffins at Toa Payoh are really good and value for money! They provide a wide variety of flavours such as banana and walnut, blueberry, orange peel and cranberry, all priced at $1-something and baked fresh. Really liked the caramelised top and the interesting flavours

Always a must buy when u head to Tanglin Halt food centre. The peanut pan cake (min jiang keuh) from Tanglin Halt Original Peanut Pancake is really the best around imo. It’s crispy round the edges but soft, gooey and chewy inside. They are super generous with their peanut and sugar filling and there’s always extra which spills out into the box for you to mop up

Yong Xiang carrot cake at Bendemeer food market always has a queue, and I can see why — their teochew png keuh and soon keuh can be pan fried and you can request for more ingredients to be added as you wish! Their pan fried png keuh and soon keuh with extra eggs and dark soy sauce was sooo good. This delicious mess only cost about $6 and is good enough to feed 2/3 pax. Great for breakfast!

Finally managed to try the curry noodles from Cantonese Delights at Hong Lim Food Centre! They usually sell out by 1-ish but luckily they still had some char siew noodles left at that time that day (although they ran out of their fried chicken cutlet…). The char siew and wantons were quite tasty, but the star of the show is definitely their super lemak curry sauce! Seems like a weird combo at first to have curry wanton noodles, but everything went very well together!

They’ve been around for so long but the BCM from @mingfafishball at Thomson Road is still one of the better ones imo! It’s especially satisfying to have their mini hotpot noodles given the rainy cold weather

Made a trip down to try Eng Kee Chicken Wings at Commonwealth area! The beehoon/kway teow but the star of the show is definitely the chicken wings! Fried to perfection and very well marinated

The char siew from @88hongkongroastmeatspecialist was mind blowing then, and is still mind blowing now! The char siew was sticky and sweet outside but incredibly tender and soft inside. One of the best around! The duck and roast pork were good as well, but nothing particularly special.

This bowl of hot tang yuan from Ah Balling Peanut shop at Fengshan Market really hits the spot in the cold and rainy weather. You get to choose from various flavours of tang yuan, including green bean and yam which is more uncommon, as well as a choice of the soup (ginger, peanut or almond milk). Prices vary depending on number of tang yuan but generally affordable ranging from 2-3 dollars for 3-5 tang yuan per bowl! Their sesame tang yuan was particularly good and fragrant.
