Make sure you clearly request for a $4 portion if you want the default size - we didn’t and ended up with the $5 bowl. Unfortunately, it was a pretty mediocre bowl. ☹️ Portion wasn’t big despite the top up, while the unseasoned fish slices had a hint of fishiness and weren’t tender. The milky broth was decently comforting.

I love har cheong gai and have been hearing so much about Ah Tan Wings! We went with just the wings, but they also sell them as a meal with 2 wings, rice and a fried egg at $5.20. Perhaps our batch was a little over fried, as while we enjoyed the crispy batter, the meat was a touch dry.

Don’t have to worry about picking your ytf ingredients, because each bowl comes in a standard mix of fishballs, beancurds, fried beancurds and beancurd rolls. Liked that there’s a good amount of soybeans given but would have liked more fish paste filling in each of the stuffed pieces. The clear broth made with anchovies and soy beans was lightly sweetened, and was quite a good complement to the heavier seasoned ytf pieces. My fav old school ytf bowl is still hands down Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu’s!

A value for money bowl for what it’s served with! $3 and you get fishcakes, 3 fishballs, pork slices and a fish dumpling. Soup was bland, but the noodles were springy and tossed in a nice ketchup-chilli mix. Their queue moves rather slowly, so you might not want to get this if you’re having a quick lunch.

Was only 10am but their Fish & Lala Combo ($4) was already sold out 😱 Went with the chicken one since it’s not quite a common option you’ll see at other handmade noodles stalls. The chicken chunks themselves were tender but a little bland, so it’s best to coat them evenly when tossing your noodles in the black sauce and chili. Noodles were springy and q, while the black sauce wasn’t too sweet. Soup was comforting. Was a nice bowl!

Came by around 10.15am since their char siew was only ready around 10am. Was in the queue for 40 minutes before finally getting a plate and I’m glad to say it was worth it! Fei Fei’s char siew chunks are not the fatty sort, but had a good bite with a shiok caramelised exterior. Roasted duck was pretty good too, while the noodles were springy with a good bite. Wantons and its soup was seasoned nicely, and the wanton fillings were juicy. Fei Fei is definitely a stall that has every component on the plate done well!

Ps. We went back hoping to get another plate of Char Siew Noodle ($3.50), but it ran out and it was only 11.45am! 😭 If you’re traveling down, make sure to drop by earlier.

I prefer less saucy BCMs, but if you’re a fan, you’d probably like Fa Ji’s. Didn’t quite like their fishballs and peppery soup, but the thickly sliced mushrooms were braised nicely and livers were tender. The noodles were springy and tossed in a mix that leaned towards more sweet.

A pretty good bowl here! Fishballs were bouncy and the springy noodles had a great bite. I like the less saucy kind of BCM and that’s what they serve here, although I’d ask for more chili next time to up the heat! We also saw a lot of people ordering their Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles ($4), which we would be back to try next time. The coffeeshop is a bit warm but it’s kept nicely clean and bright.

Tried their oyster omelette the first time and this time, we went for their other popular dish! The unassuming clear broth was well packed with flavour and I especially liked that extra touch of savouriness from the bits of salted vegetables and fried ikan bilis. Fish slices were fresh, chunky and tender with a good bite. Portion was great and worth the price tag. Will definitely be back!

Always only had Da Zui Ba’s mlxg via food deliveries and even then, it was usually a great bowl. Finally got to try it freshly fried and it didn’t disappoint!

Think there’s a minimum order of $7, which came up to a huge portion for me for the ingredients I picked. Other than the lotus slices, everything were pretty fresh. Loved that it was very thoroughly fried and bold on its flavour, spice and peppercorns. Even the wide potato noodles that some stalls usually undercook, are done nicely soft and chewy here. Their spice levels are a tad higher than the usuals, so make sure to adjust accordingly!

It was not bad a comforting bowl of old school style prawn noodles, topped with fishcakes, tender pork slices and prawns. However, although the portion of this $5 bowl was pretty big, we didn’t appreciate how our order was auto upgraded to the ‘default $5’ even though we specifically requested for the standard $4 bowl shown on their menu. ☹️ If you’re trying, make sure to double check on your order!

Haven’t had their orh jian since the most recent relocation and finally got around to satisfy the craving! Always love how crispy it is with just the perfect amount of gooey-ness. Oysters were fresh and plump. So shiok!
