Cantonese style congee and Chee Cheong Fun from @happycongeesg

Went for their classic Century Egg & Minced Meat Congee ($4), it was silky smooth and packed with flavours. But their made-to-order Chee Cheong Fun aka rice noodle rolls steal the limelight.

Between the Char Siew and Fried Dough Chee Cheong Fun ($4 each), the latter is the one we will go for. Pipping hot rice noodle wrapped snuggly around that deep-fried youtiao, I’m hungry for more now

Tucked away inconspicuously in a kopitiam, @golden_charcoal_sg is a relatively new Tze Char store helmed by two young chaps. So we were pleasantly surprised to find their Moonlight Hor Fun (from $5/small) has a distinct wok-hei fragrance. Remember to mix the raw egg in well for a smooth and slurpy-good hor fun.

Be sure to check their sides like Coffee Ribs, Prawn Paste Har Cheong Kai and Assam Fish Head, for a complete tze char feast.

Known for their signature Har Cheong Kai (Shrimp Paste Fried Chicken), this is a place to satisfy your fried chicken craving.

While they have just wings only options (min 2), check out those Sets menu such as Set A “Wing Wing”. For a full meal completed with aromatic fried rice and sunny side up but it also has two of those delicious shrimp paste wings that’s been double fried so it’s extra crispy!

One of the few remaining hawker stalls that use charcoal to toast their bread, Ah Seng Coffee is known for these indulgent Kaya French Toast ($3.50). The eggy bread is served with pandan-fragrant spread on the side for you to double-dip or triple dip!

But if this is too sinful, there’s the Kaya-Butter Toast ($1.70) a thin slice of butter and Kaya between two white bread.

Another must-order is the Baby Octopus in Soy Sauce ($8). Though I’m not a huge fan of octopus, the crunchiness and seasoning (soaked in shallot oil, fried garlic and spring onion) are on point.

Moonlight Horfun aka Yu Kong Hor from the famous Ipoh Zi Char!

Serving mainly carbs, we ended up having Moonlight Horfun ($5.50), Hokkien Fried Dai Loke Mee ($5) and Braised Yee Mee ($5)

As expected Moonlight Hor Fun is the best! Just look at that raw egg yolk sitting gloriously on a bed of silky smooth flat rice noodles with thick gravy. It has a light smokey fragrance though we were joking if the wok is from Ipoh, it might be more distinctive.

Looking for wallet-friendly meal in town and satisfying your Salted Egg cravings.

First thought that come to mind is New Station Snack Bar’s Salted Egg Pork Ribs Rice! Tender boneless pork chop, deep fried to golden brown and covered in decadent salted egg sauce. The creamy salted egg sauce is made more fragrant with curry leaves but not too gelat to finish on own. Add-on $1 for the sunny side-up!

What’s for lunch? Then we decide to go for comforting Tze Char Lunch Bowls from @tangkaykee, helmed by 2nd Gen Hawker.

Their Mixed Hor Fun consists of pork and fish slices stirred fried with flat rice noodles in thick gravy and smoky flavours of wok hei. But who would have thought the addition of onsen egg and fried enoki mushroom will pair so well with Hor Fun.

With the second outlet open within Food Republic BreadTalk IHQ, you can now enjoy the same quality fish soup in comfort of a air-conditioned place

The signature clear yet comforting broth comes in three sliced fish options: Batang (from $6), Red Garoupa (from $9) and Pomfret (from $9) with options to add-on. To experience the Teochew style of having fish soup, dip the fish slices into a mix of savoury bean paste spiked with fiery fresh chilli and soy sauce

Even though this Chilli Pan Mee had been around for two years, the lunch crowd on the weekday is still going strong.

Simple menu and you’ll see that most will order their Signature Chilli Pan Mee Dry. Delicious handmade noodles covered with minced meat, crunchy ikan billis, fried shallots, and a runny egg. Mix it well with that potent dry chilli and tuck in~

For those who prefer QQ dark noodles, go for Pork Chop Pan Mee Dry. The stripes of pork chop were slightly dry that day but fried beancurd skin has a satisfying crunch
