Don't overlook this meat skewer and that peanut sauce. Just the right food to hit the spot after a long week. Surprised myself with how very satisfied I was with hokkien mee, a bowl of bak kut teh soup and satay to share for 2. Whoever said cheap food can't be good - it can. And so very good at that.

Was never a fan of satay since young, but this, will gladly have. Comes from a nondescript coffee shop in the northern heartlands (yes yishun), manned by a Malay uncle and his family. They do a really mean satay - a distinct lemongrass aroma coupled with the smokiness from the light char and tender marinated chicken meat. Even the ketupat is done to a just-nice soft. Dip the skewer into the peanut sauce that has got all the peanut sweet-savoury flavour down pat. Not looking anywhere else for better satay. This is great enough. $0.60/pc, and only available at night. #satay #sgfood

From the Malay stall. Really decent nasi lemak ($3.50) at this Malay stall, with fragrant coconutty rice and egg fried to a golden bluster. A pity about the chicken wing, which was a little bland. It's ok though, because the chilli paired with the rice is so good that it can do on its own.


At this childhood supper haunt. Glad to be back. Slightly overfried chicken wing, but the long-grain rice is still every bit of fluffy and pairs well with the chilli. Add a milo dinosaur (kurang manis/less sugar) and it's all that's needed

The skin is slippery smooth with every inch packing that soya-sauce-chinese-spices-mix aroma and flavour. Probably the precious result of the bird immersed in the soaking marinade for hours. Tender chicken meat to boot, but it didn't had me nomming non-stop like a close competitor's chicken meat(which we tried just 2 weeks back)did. Perhaps it's by virtue that the birds used here are bigger so the meat turned out slightly tougher at the breast. For something that's been so hyped, and a queue of 50 mins+20 mins of waiting for it to be served no less, it wasn't in vain luckily.
Thankful for my fam who dragged me here. 💫

Apart from the chicken, MUST get the char siew, which almost stole the limelight because of its melt-in-mouth fat-lean meat, with a well-roasted slightly charred exterior. It's definitely one of the best char siews here by far. Sweet, savoury, sticky glazed yums. Also skip the rice (really just plain rice) and go straight for the noodles/hor fun. Prices start at $3.80 for a plate of chicken with noodles. Happy they kept it so reasonable


Not your ordinary wanton noodles. Wantons stuffed with a whole prawn each, tender braised cha-shu, runny ramen-egg and an addictive potato prawn. $5.50, for a quality cross between ramen ingredients and wanton noodles. 😄 not forgetting the flavourful braised-with-pork soup
