Stumbled upon this gem of a stall, 明辉 Bugis Street 白沙浮 - that’s in the same coffee shop as 88 HK Roast Meat at 153 Tyrwhitt Road! Aunty has a whole bunch of dishes, but our attention went straight to her abacus seeds. I loooooove abacus seeds but they are so hard to come by nowadays. So of course, we went with the largest portion right away! Smaller portions are at $4.50 and $6.

It’s unlike the usual abacus seeds that may be a tiny bit more saucy and are studded with hae bee and black fungus strips etc. It was different but it was so good. It’s not as heavily seasoned in comparison and has minced meat and mushrooms instead. Texture of seeds are less soft with more of a bite. Have them hot! I LOVED IT. Plus, aunty was so friendly!

Last had this a few years back. I’m still a bigger fan of crispy oyster omelettes, but if you enjoy a wetter and more eggy version, Lim’s Fried Oyster checks that box! I personally find it a bit more greasy than I would like, but their tangy chilli helps to cut it back a bit. It’s flavourful and you get plump oysters that are cooked just right.

Breakfast at Fatty Ox HK Kitchen at Chinatown Food Complex. Was craving for soy sauce chicken, but much preferred their char siew! The thick chunks were pretty well caramelized and not as fatty.

While generously portioned, a pity that the chicken was slightly dry and a tad bland, though the aromatic ginger and scallion oil dressing on top helped. The HK style noodles tossed in light soy were great - springy with a good bite!

Boneless chicken ftw, best for the lazy us 😂 Really enjoyed their fragrant and fluffy rice that’s not as oily. Chicken was tender, but would have personally liked them to have a tad stronger flavour. The queue gets pretty long, but you can also call in to make your pre-orders. More details on their Instagram, on @sengheng.1980!

The pancake was unfortunately mediocre, it was thick and doughy, lacking the familiar crunch. A pity that there wasn’t that many ingredients as well.

Kinda expected more from Pink Candy since they are so popular, but we’re guessing that it is probably down to what you order. Had their naengmyeon and seafood pancake. The cold noodles were decent but the broth got a bit flat half way through. Food aside, we were here in the evening and the rooftop alfresco vibe was quite nice!

Randomly joined one of the long queues at Ghim Moh Market 😂 Everything on their menu is priced the same at $5, and they only serve 2 main dishes - hor fun and mui fan. Difference between the options are the toppings that are fish, prawn, beef or available in combinations.

All the ingredients are pre-cooked, then put together upon order. Despite the crowd, I wasn’t really a big fan of it unfortunately. Albeit the decent wok hei, our plate of hor fun was a bit clumpy and would definitely have liked it to be served more hot.

Lor Mee’s not something I’d usually order, so I haven’t had enough of them to compare. Quite enjoyed this though the toppings were average, the gravy was thick and gooey but not overwhelming or starchy. It’s pretty balanced in its vinegar and garlicky-ness.

Use via their online ordering platform for 4 mains + 4 drinks at $15 till end April. Thank you @huphup.co for sharing these with me! ✨

We were finishing up our kway chap breakfast when Xiao Di Hokkien Mee opened for business and soooooo, of course we got ourselves a plate 😂

Finally got to try this and definitely understand why they are so popular among fans of wet style hokkien mee. Though the portion’s really quite small, flavour was great, esp its seafood stock sweetness. Wok hei wasn’t super strong but pretty distinct - maybe cause we were early. Was good since we didn’t have to wait too long, but I wouldn’t specially travel down for this!

Found the laksa broth a bit more diluted, but it came with a good portion of ingredients. Cockles were a done a tad over, maybe due to the delivery. Definitely prefer their mee siam!

Had a lunch of local hawker classics from Hup Hup Mee Siam - laksa, lor mee and mee siam! Their stall is located at Circuit Road Market & Food Centre, but they do deliveries across the island as well. Enjoyed their fragrant and nutty mee siam most. It’s a tad bit sweeter but we didn’t mind it as its fresh coconut milk based gravy was nicely balanced out by the appetising tangy-ness.
