If you love roast duck, Roast Irish Duck from Duckland has to be a must-try! πŸ˜‹
|
Absolutely tender and full of flavours, the duck has the right amount glistening oiliness with the skin still slightly crispy.
|
Fret not! These Irish ducks have no foul gamey taste and smell, all thanks to the high quality care and controlled diet. Thus, these ducks are considerably petite for the price tag - $50 for whole duck and $28 for half duck.πŸ˜„

Once in a while I crave for that old-school chicken chop that I used to have when I was little. I'm so glad that many hawkers, including the one I just visited - Tasty Barbeque 倜ζ₯香 (#01-94) at Maxwell Food Centre, are still serving this simple and yummy chicken chop with crinkle fries + fluffy soft bun with butter for $7.50. 😘 Yes, I'm reliving childhood memories.

Whenever I'm troubled over what to eat, I'd go for White Carrot Cake ($4) that satisfies me anytime of the day. It can be my breakfast, lunch and dinner. 😊

Good food can be very simple. Stir fry kway teow (flat rice noodles), add lap cheong (Chinese sausage), fishcakes, eggs, chives, cockles, belachan (shrimp paste) and dark soy sauce. This Char Kway Teow ($3) remains popular as our wallet-friendly national favourite dish that I'm proud to tell my foreign friends about. And nope I'm not gonna share, I'm gonna tell them to get one themselves! 🀣

Who craves for Indian Rojak during tea break? Okay... Guilty. I know it's unusual but 4pm in the afternoon and all I wanted was a plate of potatoes, fishcakes, fried tofu, assorted fritters, freshly cut cucumbers and green chilli. And not forgetting the sweet and savoury spicy gravy with chunky nuts. πŸ˜‹

And I enjoyed this big plate of Indian Rojak ($4) from Hajjal Syed Meeral, accompanied with a cup of creamy and smooth teh tarik. This is zero-calories since I'm indulging myself before Monday comes tomorrow! πŸ˜†

Try the BBQ Sambal Stingray ($20) from Alan Banana Leaves BBQ Seafood when you are at Pasir Panjang Food Centre.

Though I'm still a faithful stingray fan of Star Yong Kwang Seafood for its moist and soft stingray meat and flavourful sambal, Alan's sambal stingray puts me in a dilemma with its generously thick and big slab of stingray fillet. Yes, you read that right - it was a whole stingray fillet with very very minimal amount of bones.

This Hokkien Fried Prawn Mee ($8) from Li Yuan (δΈ½ε›­) is one of the must-try food if you visit Pasir Panjang Food Centre. The noodles were al dente and not a bit soggy. They were packed with the savoury and sweet flavours for that tasty broth. I like that it was not too wet and served on banana leaf. And of course, I love to see that there were 5 whole prawns and thickly sliced squid.

This is the most zhng-ed Braised Duck Rice I've ever ordered. From Oriental Stall (stall #19) at Maxwell Food Centre, I topped up my plate of braised duck rice with braised tofu, braised taupok, braised egg and even extra duck breast meat until the rice is barely visible. πŸ˜… All of these for only $6.80. The braised duck is lean yet so soft and tender with almost nonexistent gamey taste. πŸ‘πŸ»
.
Curious why I added all those sides? The uncle literally took them out from his braising pot upon order! 😘 That means the sides were not left out on display and dried out from the savoury sauce.
.
P.S.: The uncle did serve some of the sides which were on display to the next customer. So... ... my tip is to smile radiantly when you order. Haha πŸ˜„

Fry your own hum jin pengs! The traditional deep-fried dough fritter aka ε’Έη…Žι₯Ό is one of my favourite nostalgic local snacks.
.
At Hum Jin Pang (Stall #28) located at Maxwell Food Centre, you get to experience first-hand frying the dough fritters and buy 6 pieces of these for just $1! Between five-spice salty and sweet red bean flavours, I prefer the latter as they will be dusted in the snowy icing powder. πŸ˜€
.
For those who are their old customers, do you still remember it used to be 10 pieces for a dollar? πŸ˜„

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Maxwell Food Centre? If your answer is Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, it's time to renew your foodie list. πŸ€— I'd still recommend Tian Tian to my touristy friends for its fame and brand but if you are a local foodie, try Tong Fong Fatt Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice (Stall #17).
.
Chicken: soft and tender chicken meat was submerged in that glistening savoury sauce. LOVE! 😍
Rice: smooth and chewy rice plus not very oily. APPROVED!
Chilli: fragrant with a good kick of spiciness. BRING IT ON!
Price: extra big portion for just $4.50. I'M SOLD!
.
The stall is pretty hard to miss when there are photos of PM Lee Hsien Loong and our founding father Lee Kuan Yew just below the signboard. πŸ˜‰

Chicken Rice is a quintessential local dish to me. My favourite combination is tender roasted chicken meat with caramelized char siew and a plate of fragrant chicken rice ($4.50). πŸ˜‹

I would love if it rains durian of the size as big as a drumstick during durian season. 😍 With many durian deliveries available, I can enjoy the potent king of fruits comfortably at home. πŸ˜€
