It’s raining again… but that doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm to eat good food! 🤭

Warming myself up on this chilling evening with Teochew-style bak kut teh from Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha. Besides the crowd-pleasing tasty and peppery Spare Ribs Soup, the Braised Tau Kua (Beancurd) is a must-try! 😋

I also love how Ya Hua allows us to choose between fatty or lean Braised Pork’s Trotters. We had to go with the leaner one to look after our waistline but if fats mean flavour to you then whatever floats your boat. 😘

This depicts a beautiful plate of nasi lemak - fluffy butterfly pea flower rice (no additional cost), peanuts + ikan bilis, choice of egg (sunny side up or omelette), and the big chicken wing. All for just $5!!

The chicken wing is fresh, tender and full of juice. Big love for the crispy chicken skin that is not oily at all. 😘

My favourite part of dining at Sedap is that I get to enjoy the free flow selections of sambal! 😍

Chicken chop with crackling crispy skin and tender-soft juicy meat on top of the intensely flavourful noodles that had totally soaked up all the goodness from the seafood broth. Squeeze that lime and perfect the taste by stirring in the fragrant spicy chilli for a real good kick! 😍

Happy 54th Birthday Singapore! 🇸🇬 It can't be more apt to indulge in some local dishes on the national birthday. 😚 Ya ya it's just me finding excuses to eat.

This sharing platter "Bao Ka Liao" ($32.90), which means 'encompass everything' in Hokkien, showcases the famous Rolex watch chef Warong Kim's Hokkien Mee, Tenderfresh's Fried Spring Chicken as well as Popiah by Ah Boy from Good Chance Popiah. 🤓
.
The Hokkien Mee definitely stood out for its noodles that had entirely absorbed the robust and thick broth made from prawn shells and other secret ingredients. And kimslaw just goes so well with the crispy fried spring chicken - nobody can disagree with me on that! 😆

If you love roast duck, Roast Irish Duck from Duckland has to be a must-try! 😋
|
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.😄

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 夜来香 (#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. 😋

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! 😆

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 (丽园) 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. 😅 All of these for only $6.80. The braised duck is lean yet so soft and tender with almost nonexistent gamey taste. 👍🏻
.
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 😄
