For $4 this set has a fried egg, cabbage and a curry big sized chicken drumstick. The added bitter gourd was only $0.80 more and it’s really worth it. Overall the curry flavour and taste is authentically Hainanese. Yummy!

Since the reopening of Havelock Cooked Food Centre this porridge stall is getting more popular. I love this porridge as the 3 ingredients are fresh and tasty. Porridge is smooth and creamy. For the price it’s better than any Tiong Bahru porridge stall or shops.

If you work around Hong Lim Food Centre you’d likely have eaten at or heard about Cantonese Delights. All its items like wanton mee, curry chicken mee, chicken chop mee and this Yong tau foo laksa are good. I like this in particular due the yummy taste and its value for money. For $4 you get a delicious bowl of laksa mee with 7 big pieces of yong tau foo. This lunch can last me till dinner without having tea break. 🤪


This porridge stall sells a variety of porridges but must ask if he has fish belly cos it’s not often it’s available. But the soft fish belly combined with the crunchy big intestines really enhances the dish. Stall closes on Monday hence Sunday is a very popular time. Go early. By the way it sells a very good bee hoon to go with the porridge

Sometime back I posted about the Armeniam Street Fried Kway Teow which is inside a food court tucked in the maze of HDB blocks (known as Anchorvale Court). The Anchorvale Food Court is part of block 303 which is a multi story car park. The chef, Ah Tan, serves a delicious plate of FKT which he learned to cook it right from his father who ran the same name stall in a coffee shop in Armenian Street. Almost every string of mee and kway teow is covered with egg which make it tasty to bite. There’s the juicy see hum (cockles), slices of fish cake and slices of quality Chinese sausage fried just right to complement the whole dish. Wok hee is good and the FTK is not too wet nor dry. What I love about it is that it’s not too sweet nor salty. The dish I had was $3 with a $1 worth of cockles. It’s really yummy delicious. Stall is closed every Thursdays. Opens from about 11 am till sold out before dinner.


If you’re around Havelock Road area and crave for an excellent fishball noodle try this. Just for $3 you’ll get a bowl of well cooked noodles with chilli sauce and vinegar (if you prefer). The fishballs are definitely handmade and is tasty and bounces as you bite. I added $1.50 for the deep fried fish cake and it’s just as good as the fish balls. No wonder he has a following from Toa Payoh where he was before here.

I really don’t expect this good 咸煎饼 can be found here. It’s really thin unlike the thick types and it’s crispy outside and soft inside. Really yummy!!!


This is the old school styled prawn noodles which has the soup that’s not too overpowering. The small but not tiny prawns are wholesome not halves. Overall taste is yummy good.


Very tasty fried rice with good wok hei. Rice is not oily nor salty. Add it with ikan billis, dried shrimp, fried egg or luncheon meat to make a wholesome meal.


A stall that sells only fish soup with long waiting time has to be good. And yes it is. The soup has both fried and plain fish slices, fried egg and fish roe too. Though the soup is on the salty side but mixed with rice it’s just right. So if you love fish soup this is a stall to go if you’re in Beseh Food Centre.

One of the long queues in Tiong Bahru Market & Food Centre is the queue for this good old school styled soya bean milk stall. It sells soya bean milk, curd and chin chow. The soya bean milk and curd are the main attractions. It’s really not the same as those instant soya bean milk types made from powder.

Live to eat and eat to share.
