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!

Mum has been a frequent customer at their Bugis stall, but it’s my first time trying! This was very impressive for its price - just $2.50 and you get a chunky piece of freshly fried fish, along with an egg and bits of pork belly, ngoh hiang and fish cake. Gravy was well seasoned, had a good consistency and wasn’t too thick. The counter has chilli, vinegar and minced garlic for you to add too based on your preference. Star of the bowl was the crunchy, tender and meaty piece of fried fish, so would definitely top up 50 cents more for their Fried Fish Lor Mee ($3) for more fish next time!

Was craving for prawn noodles and googling led us to this place! We went slightly after lunch hours but the queue was still going strong. That said, they cook quickly, so we didn’t have to wait too long to dig in. Though their broth is comparatively lighter to other bigger names, it was flavourful, hearty and we liked how you get the prawns’ natural sweetness. Similar to the Prawn Noodle Dry ($4.50), this came with a generous helping of fried pork lard chunks on top.

We liked the soup version more, but the dry was quite nice to have too, though the chilli could be punchier. They are very generous with the crispy fried lard and the good sized prawns were peeled for easy eating.

Second time having Chris Kway Chap and so glad to report that it’s good as we remembered! Really enjoyed the well-braised ingredients and comforting bowl of kway. Got to be prepared to wait for a while in the queue though.

Kway was thin and smooth in a subtly sweet herbal broth. Though the braising sauce wasn’t the most robust, it was tasty and intestines were cleaned out well. Was an affordably priced and better than average bowl! We’d get this again if we’re here craving for kway chap.
