I don’t often get soon kuehs, but I like that theirs has a more savoury filling than the usual ones. Soon kueh skin is the same as the one they use for the ku chai kueh - it’s smooth and q!

One of my favorite types of kueh is ku chai kueh! Love the kueh skin here, as it has just the right thickness and the perfect amount of chew. The fragrant ku chai filling is always generous!

You’ll probably need 2 of these to be full but it’s a shiok one. Chili packs a punch, cockles were plump, and while the broth was light, it’s flavourful in its seafood flavour. Was a little too salty the last time I tried, but it was just nice this round!

Saw a long queue here when we passed by the last time and made a mental note to come back for it. The Signature Meesua ($5.80) that comes with scallops seemed popular, but we got this bowl to satisfy our fishball cravings. Also decided to top up a dollar for pork livers in the soup since we heard good things, and so glad we did.

The mee kia used here is a flatter kind, and was very springy with a good bite. Chilli was punchy, while the soup was sweet and flavourful from the added minced meat. Fishballs were fresh, but I loved the livers the most - they were well marinated, crunchy and cooked superbly well. PS. Orh-Kee’s open 24 hours, so that means you can have suppers here too!

Was in the area and remember seeing a number for posts about this zi char place and their egg hor fun! We got the medium portion, but they do have the small at $6 and large at $15. The portion feels a little smaller than normal medium sizes, but we enjoyed it! Wok hei was pretty strong and ingredients were fresh. Lots of tasty and eggy zhup to go along.

Since we were already here to try Victor Veggie, we also tried this other vegetarian stall that had a whole menu of stewed soups and rice. Really loved the mushroom rice, it was so fragrant and savoury, mixed in with bits of mushrooms and mock meat. Had a hard time deciding on which rice to go for as there’s 6 different ones! The other options were pumpkin rice, black eyed peas with black sesame and seaweed brown rice, etc.

Soup wise, we got to try this mushroom, dried longan and black beans soup. There weren’t that many mushrooms though, but they were very generous with the beans beans. Though it was really hearty and comforting, I prefer more savoury soups in general, so this was a tad too sweet for me. Will definitely be back to try the others though!

Lucky that we joined the queue right before the lunch crowd came! Picked mee kia and they were done as q as usual. Just can’t get enough of their umami sole fish based broth - it’s super comforting and the depth of flavour is always so impressive!

Family has been coming back here for a long time. It’s not the most affordable bowl of noodles, but you get a good variety of ingredients like tau pok, chicken, fishcakes and potato chunks. While the chicken slices could be more tender, the highlight for us is their light and flavourful broth. It’s not oily, so it’s very drinkable and good to have soaked up with the strips of tau pok. For a stronger kick of heat, add their chilli!

Was a half an hour wait, so we went straight for the bigger $8 portion! 😂 It’s a similar style to Simon Road Oyster Omelette, with a good ratio of crispiness to gooeyness, but I kinda prefer Simon Road’s a touch more for it’s a bit more savoury. Oysters were fresh and came in a good number, and the chilli helped in lifting the flavours.

Heard that Ah Chuan Oyster’s opening hours are sometimes by luck, but when they are open, they have a steady queue. Aunty was very friendly, but you’ve got to be prepared to wait.

Popiah is our family’s tradition for CNY lunch and we usually get the freshly made skins from Kway Guan Huat at Joo Chiat or here from Hup Kiat. The smooth skins here have a slightly springy and chewy texture, and have just the right thickness to hold in the ingredients without breaking apart. They work tirelessly to remain open for CNY to provide these skins to everyone so it’s usually more expensive than usual, but worth it. We got ours at $30/kg this time!
