When Dad gets us tea aka one of the best Kuehs in SG while we all stay at home 😘😋

Quipped that the laska was similar to Roxy laksa, the family’s benchmark for the best laska in SG. The laksa connoisseur of the family, my dad who had way too many bowls of laska in his hay-days, said there were difference but this was a very good bowl of laksa. While acknowledging the laksa connoisseur’s verdict, I reminded him that the snaking queue (we queued 40 minutes) might find this the best laksa in Singapore 😬

At 1pm on a Saturday afternoon, we were determined to find this elusive stall called granny’s pancakes nearby our usual haunt - Tampines round market. Stubbornly relying on its address and verbal directions from our neighbour diner sharing the same table at the round market; I took a big detour to finally spy a short queue at this coffee shop.
At least our neighbour diner was right about the queue. While I observed the lady boss cutting each slice upon order and checking if she had to fill each with extra ingredients, I couldn’t help but think how unfazed, without any rush, she dealt with a building queue. I guess she’s all about the quality for her Chinese pancakes are delicious and worth every penny.

[Stall: Kim Kee #01-47] Just had this scrumptious plate of my go to hawker food; while the carrot cakes were not the best I’ve had, the generous bed of swirling white and yellow egg that covered all these elongated carrot cubes was remarkable. Oh and the crisp ends you’d dream of good carrot cakes.
Well worth the $3 for a generous portion, a definite to order again if you crave this sinful local delicacy.

Some Saturdays are for white carrot cake, cockles and beer at East Coast lagoon with what felt like 1/2 the population of Singapore, despite COVID (clear exaggeration but it was packed). While I like my Bedok carrot cake better, I enjoyed my alternative chill out dinner immensely; potentially more than what would have been expensive dinner at PS Cafe if we had gotten a seat.

P.S: forgot to mention to Aunty that I was “having here”; sorry environment (but wait “dining here” would have meant open face styrofoam plate anw)

On the eve of National Day, i get to enjoy the scenic view of Gardens by the Bay form the Kallang PCN we woke up at 6am to “explore”. Then had breakfast at one of the better brunch places in Singapore - enter Sarnies, before walking to Chinatown and have my Singaporean Kopi after a milky, cafe masala chai latte. This was not before stopping by this non descript chiffon and roll cake stall which had Dr Leslie Tay’s article displayed- at $1.80 per slice of chiffon I found this one of the softest chiffons I’ve had and was very pleased.

At Chinatown complex food centre I had only space for desserts so the chendol that Our Grandfather Story featured we had to try. It was a good bowl of chendol at $2 considering how the slightly savoury pandan tadpole jellies are handmade.

But my win for the day was Xin Xuan’s Min Chiang Kueh, I love pancakes so corollary, I love Chinese pancakes. The ones here are soft and delicious that it made me feel like they were everything I could have ever wanted.

“I don’t think I’ve ever had Chee Cheong Fun so thick” was the first thought as I lifted the $2.50 egg version of one of my favourite Chinese delicacy or “dim sum”. While the establishment touts a handmade value proposition; even if the egg was the valid contributing factor to the thickness, I didn’t fancy a swampy cluttered steam flour skin in the turnips version either.
Maybe I had the wrong flavors but otherwise I’m still looking on a look out for great hawker: handmade chee cheong fun.

Update: On a second visit I was lucky to get a good batch of these pancakes, crisp exterior and soft interior, a key reason why I thought the pancakes were ok might be because I am used to sweeter min Chiang kuehs even as the pancakes are partaken plain without fillings. Easily solved when i get the red bean flavours which is sweeter than the coconut ones.

Had a lot of min chiang kuehs in my life span to find these ok; but at a small and acceptable damage.

Eat to live, live to eat. Alternating between the 2 all day err day?
