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.

This dish is a must order for us whenever we dine at Beng Hiang but apart from this dish, we have been first hand observers of the decline of this Hokkien cuisine institution. The oysters are plump and fresh, while the dish was crispy yet light. Could do with more eggs though. But the Chilli that was drizzled over the dish added oomph to it. Let's hope this dish remains to be as tasty.

Have always wanted to try this place for a long time but left disappointed because there was no wow factor in it. The soup while comforting, lack oomph but came brimming with ingredients. Vegetables should be skipped at all cost, expensive and bland. Fried meatballs were quite good, kind of like having keropok while the 卤肉饭 was pretty tasty and came with a decent amount of braised pork.

Have been longing to come here since forever and finally dragged my lazy ass across the island. The cupcakes here are so, so fragrant and has a very sturdy texture, not as crumbly as other cupcakes. The toasted buns are done to perfection and each bun is slapped with a generous portion of kaya that has a strong coconut flavour. The butter gives a savoury touch to the sweet kaya, complementing each other extremely well

The noodles here were springy and firm, and while the stall specialises in wantons, it was the char siew slices that impressed me more. Each slice was tender and sweet, unlike those from certain stalls that are hard as rock and bland. The wantons are pretty good too, each small dollop packs a punch of flavour
