PRICE: $4.50

WAITING TIME: ~ 5 mins on a weekday at 1.15pm

REMARKS:
- First thought: 'Skippy peanut butter...?'
- Strong taste of peanut butter
- Comes with minced pork meat and cabbage
- Noodles texture is very nice
- Portion is decent
- Tastes nicer when you add their chilli sauce (the DTF style chilli sauce)

PRICE: $3

WAITING TIME: About 5 mins on a weekday at 1.15pm

REMARKS:
- Noodles texture is soooo good
- Generous portion
- Taste wise, not exactly like the scallion oil noodles we know of. The scallion taste is hardly noticeable. There's a subtle vinegar taste which is usually not present in scallion oil noodles.

PRICE: $8.90 + service charge
No GST

WAITING TIME: Got a table for two immediately when we reached past 8.30pm on a weekday. Food arrived 6 minutes after ordering. 👍

REMARKS:
- Different type of noodles from the Bún bò Huế. This is thinner.
- Soup wise, the Bún bò Huế is a lot more flavourful
- Came with a lot of ingredients
- Very generous portion

WILL WE RETURN? YES. Under $20 for two bowls of authentic vietnamese noodles in town is a pretty good deal.

PRICE: $8.90 + service charge

WAITING TIME: Got a table for two immediately when we reached past 8.30pm on a weekday. Food arrived 6 minutes after ordering. 👍

REMARKS:
- Small space, better suited for dining in pairs
- Very Viet vibes (music, staff, decor)
- FOOD IS GOOD
- Finished every bit of this bowl that tasted so authentic
- Beef is slightly tough
- Customised mine such that there's no bean sprouts

WILL WE RETURN? YES. Under $20 for two bowls of authentic vietnamese noodles in town is a pretty good deal.

PRICE: $6.50 for medium

WAITING TIME: 10 mins on a Monday evening
(They open from 6.30pm)

REMARKS:
- Not very good social distancing here. Very cramped. Not possible to sit 1 metre apart from the table behind and in front of you.
- Noodles portion for medium is really quite sad. Less noodles than what you'll get for a $3 or $3.50 bowl at any coffeeshop.
- Herjiao quality has improved greatly from last time
- Still no match for the previous Songkee, tbh. The only thing that's better is the significantly shorter waiting time.

WAITING TIME: Oddly slow (10 mins) even though there was only 1 person before us on a weekday at 2pm

REMARKS:
- Very watery at first, needs to stir well
- Cockles were fresh
- Not much ingredients
- Couldn't help but think Yishun laksa tastes nicer actually
- We both felt it was a little overhyped. Nice but not thaaaaat nice.
- Only thick white beehoon

WILL WE RETURN? Only if the queue is very short

PRICE: $5

WAITING TIME: ~ 5 mins on a Sunday morning

REMARKS:
- Filling portion
- Soup is very flavorful
- Fresh prawns
- LOTS of clams

PRICE: $4.50 for 4 ingredients and $2 minced meat noodles

WAITING TIME: 2 persons in the queue before me at 11.30am. About 5 mins.

NOTES:
- This hawker centre is looooooooong. The layout is a very long rectangular one. This stall is located near the bus stop. Blk 79, not 79A.
- It was our first visit so we walked through the entire hawker centre twice. While we were staring at this YTF stall with a queue, the uncle who just got his food gave us a thumbs up and said we should definitely try this YTF.

PRICE: $6.23 after using Kopitiam card
Consists of 1 bowl of rice, sweet potato vermicelli, instant noodles, beancurd sheets, pork belly

WAITING TIME: 10 minutes on a weekday past 10pm

SPICINESS LEVEL: Chose the highest level. Totally tolerable for me but not for him.

PRICE: $4
+$1 to upsize noodles

WAITING TIME: Slightly over 5 minutes on a weekday past 1PM

REMARKS:
- Smells of vinegar but the vinegar taste isn't so overpowering, so that's good for me
- Nice seasoning. Can taste the fragrance of fried pork lard in the seasoning.
- Fishballs are bouncy
- Soup is nice
- Otak is $1.50 (but we didn't get it)

PRICE:
$4.90nett for 6 pieces + choice of carbs (they even have mee pok and mee kia!!!!!!!)

WAITING TIME: Despite a snaking queue all the way to Jollibee's entrance, their efficient ordering system made it only a short 10-minute wait in the ordering queue and another 5-minute wait for our orders to arrive at our assigned seats

MUST ORDER:
- Fried meatball
- That HUGE mushroom
- Dry instead of soup because the seasoning is just so good! Garlic oil and shallots included!

REMARKS:
- Squeezy elbow-to-elbow seating with strangers. More squeezy than at hawker centres and food courts haha.

WILL WE RETURN? Definitely

Note to self: Opens daily till 6PM

PRICE: $4.50

WAITING TIME: 4 min on a weekday lunchtime
(Beeper provided so need not stand in queue)

PRAWNS: 2

SOUP:

NOODLES TYPE: Many to choose from. Their thin beehoon is unlike the usual thin beehoon. Very nice!

REMARKS:
- Soup is nice but the amount is not a lot
- lots of fried shallots in the noodles, yaaaay

WILL I ORDER AGAIN? YES.

Do I prefer this to its strongest competitor (Albert Street Prawn Noodles) in the adjacent row? I don't know yet. Prices there begin from $5.50 though.
