Stumbled here with my girlfriend’s family although I have seen this place on Instagram so many times. Don’t know if we caught them on an off day or what because I haven’t seen anyone mention that the noodles here are super spicy. The girlfriend’s brother had to wash the noodles in the soup which promptly turned bright orange after his endeavours.

Apart from being really spicy, the noodles are quite springy, as are the fishballs but the wait is a tad too long. Would wanna come back again, just to see if we caught them on an off day or if we are gonna eat chilli noodles all the time instead of BCM. Let me know your thoughts about this place ◡̈

Came here on a few occasions in the past but always didn’t get to try the food here but finally did so after we arrived here before the opening hours.
Although the place is famed for its roasted and bbq pork, I find that it is the roasted duck that I’m most impressed by. It was tender and well flavoured and I also like that it is not as fatty as most roast ducks tend to be.

I can also understand why the bbq pork and roasted pork here is so famous. They managed to nail the fats to meat ratio perfectly for both!
Come here early if you want to try as the crowd started forming 5, 10 minutes into the shop’s operating hours.

At $5.50 a bowl, I expect my laksa to taste good, if not exceptional but sadly this was just a waste of money... Shall try our luck at Janggut next time, hopefully it’s open when we visit 😅

The stall first caught my attention when a bro told me about it and the ever present queues (at least during meal times) pique my interest.

The noodles here are springy and cooked nicely and costs up the sauce base very well. I like that the noodles comes with plentiful ingredients as well. What makes the dish special is that it comes with mock goose (素鹅) bits as well as a flavourful Fuzhou fishball.

You can have this as a set at $4.50 or without the drink at $3.50. There are other offerings at the stall too, including BCM with abalone slices at $4.50!

One of the go-to places when I want no-frills, comfort food. The club sandwich here reminds me of a homely taste but is a tad bit expensive though 😅

Established since 2004, Currywok serves up heartening and homely dishes! We had their Curry Chicken ($11), Sambal Kangkong ($10), Sambal Sotong ($13) and some Coconut Agar Agar ($4) and Fresh Lime Juice ($2.50) to end of the meal. The lady boss was also kind enough to serve us an additional dish of their signature Nonya Chap Chye ($10), all of which I love very much!
.

Ever since my grandma stopped cooking, I have been longing after delicious home cooked meals and the dishes at Currywok definitely help with it. The lady boss also shared with us that their food are cook-to-order and are not laden with MSG.
.
I especially love the Curry Chicken as every piece is tender and the gravy is light yet flavourful. The Sambal Sotong was the crowd favourite; every piece is cooked to perfection and soaked in sambal. Special mentions for the agar agar as well which is the old school kind that is firm to the bite ◡̈ .

So, come on down to Currywok for a nice, satisfying meal with a homely touch.

Thanks to @ninetyfoursg for the invite and Cat from @currywok_sg for the hospitality and meal. Will be back again soon ◡̈

Have always wanted to try the traditional steamed cakes here after it was raved about by @foodkingnoc! The radish cake here was a delight to have as it is stuffed with bits of radish, Chinese sausage and dried shrimp, making every bite different from the previous one. The cake is also topped with lots of fried shallots that added crunch to each bite. Top it off with the sambal if you want an extra kick; the sambal packs a punch!

Look at that glorious bowl of noodles brimming with ingredients! This is definitely value for money, taste and ingredients wise. The noodles were springy and came with a generous amount of sauce for you to toss your noodles in.
The soy sauce chicken was tender with every bite while the char siew slices were a fine balance of fats and meat. The roasted pork had the same proportion and was topped with a crispy skin ◡̈ The additional side of chicken liver was a great decision as it was hands down the best I have had; every slice was cooked to perfection.

Date nights in town need not be expensive! Almost everyone in the restaurant did the same as us, order 2x set meals, which gets you a choice of either chicken/roast or bbq pork with a side of either dumpling soup or oyster veg. We got the steamed chicken and roasted pork for our mains and went for both the vegetables and soup ◡̈ we also ordered additional sides of glizzards, liver and egg. All these for only $16! Besides, the food was tasty as well ◡̈ well, maybe apart from the vegetables which was a little bitter

This dish is also one of our must order and hasn't disappointed thus far. Wobbly, tender and juicy meat with a delicate balance between meat and fat sandwiched within a bun, brings back a lot of childhood memories ◡̈

Probably one of the better dishes at Beng Hiang this time round. The coffee taste was infused into the ribs and every bite was a mix of tenderness and juiciness topped with a burst of coffee flavour in your mouth. Sweet yet savoury at the same time ◡̈ .

Used to love this dish a lot when I first tried it but this recent one is a massive disappointment. The proportion of sauce and meat was off and the chicken came drenched and was not a single bit crispy. Soggy fried chicken makes for disappointment, massive disappointment.
