Crust is the usual curry puff crust except it’s in a reddish pink colour. Was quite surprised with the heat packed in here though the ma la flavour wasn’t the strongest. Pretty nice snack with a kick of heat and different ingredients - bamboo shoots, onions and peanuts, along with chicken cubes.


We had this fresh hot out of the fryer and liked the crunch of the breaded exterior! The filling was creamy with mushrooms, shrimps and cubes of carrots. While well seasoned, it was quite pricey.

The curry filling surprisingly came with a good kick of heat, but could do with a bigger portion for its price. It’s best to have hot, but it retained quite a good crunch even after being left aside a while.

The salted egg flavour wasn’t as rich and was a touch sweet.

The truffle aroma and flavour was pretty strong, but I’d like it a touch more savoury.

Ordering’s easy, just choose between original and spicy! We picked the original and got it in about 15 minutes. It’s pricier by a dollar than Monga Fried Chicken but we liked this much more. It’s juicier, has stronger flavour and there was a nice subtle sweetness in the crunch. Meat was thick but tender throughout!


The wait wasn’t too long, we got our chicken cutlet in about 15 minutes on a weekday afternoon! We picked the original flavour that is seasoned with salt and pepper. I first tried Monga in Taipei and it didn’t leave a huge impression, as our cutlet wasn’t seasoned that well. Glad it was tad better this time with a crunchy exterior (though it was a bit too thick for me), but my favourite 天使鸡排 Angel Chicken from Kaohsiung still wins for their juicier and way more tender meat. We found Monga’s quite dry to continually snack on.

You can find other chicken cutlet flavours here at Monga, such as one dusted with their homemade chili powder, Hot Chick ($6.90) or with Japanese sauce and seaweed powder, Taiker ($6.90). They also serve up other small bites and drinks!


You can choose from various flavours and since we couldn’t decide, we went with the ‘Shanghai’ for a mix of the different toppings like preserved veg, spice, etc. Liked that they don’t fry these so it wasn’t greasy, but it’s like a biscuity flatbread with a nice crunch. It wasn’t too heavily seasoned and works well as a healthy snack.

Grabbed a cup of this at the cashier thanks to the staff’s recommendation. Each rice cake is wrapped in a piece of seaweed. They were soft and chewy with a lovely soy sauce aroma. $2.50 for 6 pieces of these worked as a good snack!


Was in Tiong Bahru and googled for small bites - Leung Sang Hong Kong Pastries were the first few results for their traditional HK style egg tarts! Lightly sweetened egg custard in a buttery and flaky crust, it was a good snack to have! If you’re not a fan of the flaky crust, they also have the normal Western egg tart crust at the same price.


First had 串串 in Guangzhou last year and have been hoping to have them again, so I was super excited to see this new stall up in the food area just outside People’s Park Complex (aka where you find all sorts of China Chinese dishes). The skewers at Happy Cat are $1 for each meat skewer and $1.50 for every 2 vegetable skewers.

Grab a cup, pick the skewers you want and the servers will help to dip them into a spicy sauce. Most skewers I had in Guangzhou gave an option of a hot or cold dip, but this was only available cold. However, while I liked the freshness of the ingredients and the ‘numbness’ of the spicy dip, thought the dip could be a lot more fragrant and I would have preferred lesser sesame sauce in the mix.

Teochew Meat Puff’s oyster cake has been my ultimate favourite ever since I’ve first had them 2 years back. It’s slightly pricier than others but just look at HOW STUFFED IT IS?! The classic oyster version has plump and fresh oysters, but if they aren’t your thing, they have other options like prawns, octopus, crab, vegetable and scallop. It’s well seasoned and remains crisp even after being set aside a while. Also, because it’s so generously portioned, it’s very filling and can almost replace a meal 😂

You can only get Teochew Meat Puff when they do pasar malams (usually in the East), so follow their Facebook page for more updates. They’re currently in Serangoon Central till 3rd February 19 from 1pm to 10pm daily!
