Had high hopes for their bcm cause of the long queue plus the bib, but was disappointed πŸ₯² opted for their signature noodle dish - the noodles, meatballs, meat, and the rest of the toppings were average (if not subpar), liver is slightly undercooked to my liking πŸ₯² there’s a fried sole fish included (quite unique) but also tends to be tad bit salty. Overall taste is overpowered by black vinegar

Other branches seem to have better reviews, but not planning to try this anytime soon πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Classic breakfast combination for us since we got here in SG: kaya toast, soft boiled eggs, and teh, with another hawker classic find: siew mai (just to make us more full lol)

No frills and easily filling good starter for the day :)

So happy that Lye Bo is back with ~good~ food πŸ₯Ή they have stopped selling roast pork last Feb’22 and rebranded with a healthier menu. Wasn’t a big fan of that but their new menu (I think updated very recently) is something I would support again (similar to how I have been ordering roast pork from them at least once a week previously lol)!

The noodles is the highlight of the whole dish. Springy, flavourful, and very similar texture to ramen noodles (so maybe they used wheat noodles? Lol not sure, update this when I’ve asked them!)

The honey glazed bbq is also good, slightly tough but tastes well. Lard has a good crunch though less saltier than usual. Adding onsen egg boosts the overall dish, giving additional taste to the noodles while enveloping it

Been looking for the auntie and uncle of this stall after the HP foodcourt closed down few years back. Can’t believe they’re back! The taste is still as good as I have remembered it, albeit being slightly less salty (which is good)

The food court is well-ventilated, but quite limited choices at the moment

Had a sudden craving for ckt today cause of a friend sending a photo early in the morning (lol). This stall in Alexandra Food Centre is hard to miss as it’s in the exact middle of the whole centre

Ordered a small plate and the serving is as generous as ever (though price has increased as compared to last year). Served with a generous portion of cockles and Chinese sausage. Good enough to satisfy the cravings

Big chunks of radish enveloped by egg with tiny bits of Chinese sausage on top. I liked it while eating together with laksa as it pulls me out of the spice flavour profile with its slightly buttery taste and natural sweetness of radish & sausage. Can consider skipping if you are looking for the typical carrot cake taste as the dish is more omelette for me than carrot cake

Found Jelebu by accident while looking for a lunch place. Though notified of slower than normal service by the staff while still on soft opening, we were quite intrigued with the dry laksa and opted to try

Ordered the cheapest laksa dish which offers crispy ebi as main topping. The ebi was delivered really well and maintained its crisp state even mixed with the rest of the sauce. The crisp also provided a good contrast when the dish starts to become jelak. Apart from ebi, the dish was served with well-cooked noodles, good amount of tau pok, fishcake, bean sprouts and fresh cockles (can choose not to). The whole dish screams rempah which became a bit overbearing for me at some point, leaning towards too salty

For a first timer, it didn’t convert me to dry, vs the typical laksa. Though I’m more intrigued now how other dry laksa dishes taste like 🧐

Huge fresh prawns served with buttermilk sauce and some cornflakes. Enjoyed the sauce which is creamy and flavourful but not overpowering the prawn’s sweet taste. The one I got is a bit over, but still not too tough to be enjoyed. Would’ve been better if it was deshelled πŸ˜‹ the cornflakes provide textural difference - not sloppy even after being soaked into the generous sauce

Thanks again @burpple for the invite, and @laobeijingsg for hosting! 🀍

Another notable dish from our @laobeijingsg dinner is this unconvential hor fun. Served dry with stir-fried and crispy-fried hor fun, topped with wagyu slices and poached egg, and paired with a separate truffle sauce - this dish was a clear success for me

The smell from the generous hot truffle gravy was so inviting from the time it got served. It was poured and mixed with the dry ingredients while still maintaining the dry ingredients’ individual highlights. The crispy fried hor fun is a happy surprise (first time to have this type!) with its retained texture even after having the gravy mixed. The wagyu slices were tender and matched well with the rest of the ingredients. Didn’t get any β€œenhanced” flavor though with the addition of the egg

Price could be a bit steep, but one could argue it could be from both wagyu and truffle πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ enjoyed it a lot nonetheless

Happy National Day! πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬

It’s just apt to have one of the uniquely Singaporean dishes today. Opted for my go-to breakfast combo: no-fail Kaya Toast with Teh C, and siew mai. I would’ve preferred to have a non-packaged siew mai next time, but this will do πŸ˜‹

Had this after 2+ years, and price is still the same but the taste has changed. The sauce, though generous, is too watered down. Didn’t feel any salt or spice kick. Chicken is still crispy though πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Really good beef dish - looks and tastes like it has been braised for long hours. The meat is not tough at all; it’s fragrant and very savoury. The noodles are also quite springy. Served with crunchy kailan

Do take note of the long queue on weekdays (from offices nearby)
