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

Delightful satay from @yunosnfamily. The chargrilled satay - tripe, lamb and chicken - has a smokey aroma while remaining tender. Coat it with thick nutty peanut sauce and best eaten with the ketupat

One of our regular lunch spot at Circular Road. Known for their Speciality Mee Sua, each bowl of Bak Chor Mee is generously topped with minced pork, sliced pork, meatball, mushroom and crispy ikan bilis. Strong vinegar taste though it isn’t overpowering, it is one of the comfort food we go for

A real crowd-pleaser will be their Claypot Chicken Rice ($23 for Big portion) though be prepared to wait for 20+ minutes for it. Cooked with basmati rice instead of normal white rice, you can get the smokey charcoal fragrance in each bite. Remember to scrape the side for those burnt crispy rice and mix well with the succulent chunks chicken, Chinese sausage and salted fish.

Gotten both Minced Meat Noodle Dry ($5) and Fish Maw Noodles Soup ($11), which include pork liver slices, minced pork and braised mushrooms.

The dry BCM might not be something to exclaim about and though pricey, the Fish Maw Noodle Soup is the one you should try. Boiled for hours with pork bones, seaweed and dried sole fish (ti poh), the soup is packed full of umami goodness!
