Fried Hokkien Mee ($5)
.
Aside from the usual curry rice from Beo Crescent that everyone raves about, 洋洲fried hokkien mee is an almost equally popular stall located just a few shops down at a nearby coffeeshop. This may not be the best I’ve had but certainly comes up as above average. I love my plate oozing with the thick gravy that’s been infused with wok-hei.

Curry Chicken Cutlet Noodles ($4)
.
My tummy’s best friend, we meet again after so long. You remain as succulent as ever with an ultra crispy exterior coated in a thick and slick delicious curry sauce. I hope our next meet will not be as long as this. Also made a new friend in the laksa yong tau fu. It’s really amazing that 2 similar curry gravies can deliver very different flavour profiles. Cantonese Delights is one of my all time go-to faves for a curry and fried chicken fix.

Fried Hokkien Mee ($5)
.
Not sure what the rave was about @namsinghokkienfried . Felt that the ingredients were not well mixed together and all the components from the stock to the beehoon and mee all tasted pretty distinct. I prefer mine all coming through as one with a tad of mushiness. The wok-hei was also lacking and I wasn’t impressed to find halved prawns on my plate. The time taken to halve them and the impression it gives to customers just doesn’t commensurate with the effort. For the amount I’m paying, I think my prawns should come whole.

Fragrant Sauce Chicken ($12/half)
.
Kampung chicken served in samsui style with grated ginger. Super slurpworthy and silk smooth and tender. Closed on mon and thurs and you’ll have to wait patiently for the stall to prepare your order. Stall is located at the tucked away green section of the food centre.

Sweet & Sour Pork ($7)
.
Extended deliberation on whether to post about this crazy value for money tze char place located within chinatown food centre. The menu isn’t extensive but every dish is executed with finesse and perfection. This sizzling hot claypot of my favourite sweet and sour pork is only $7 and the portion could easily feed 4. The unique selling point of this dish is that its sweet and sour sauce was made with hawthorn instead of the usual pineapple, vinegar and ketchup. Expect to find quirky senior folks running the shop and not taking no carbs as an acceptable reason to skip ordering rice and this stall only opens for a short 2 hours, making it a feat just to order successfully.

Roast Meats
.
For affordable roast meats, Tong Luo Wan charcoal roasts serves up an array of roast duck ($12/lower quarter), char siew ($40/kg), roast pork ($40/kg) and soy sauce chicken ($7/lower quarter). TLW specializes in herbal roast duck prepared with dang gui. Amongst the meats we sampled, all the roast were above average though I prefer my roast duck with a stronger herbal flavour. The char siew was nicely charred but could be sliced thicker for a stronger flavour. The stall sells out after lunch and is quite a popular spot for the folks in the neighbourhood.

Thank you @alhsx for the invitation and @jthejon for the hospitality.

Claypot Rice ($12 for 2pax)
.
Yew Chuan Claypot Rice needs no introduction. Been a icon at Goldenmile Food Centre for ages. I’m a recent fan by accident as i much on the tender BONELESS chicken@thigh chunks and generous slices of chinese sausage. Pairing the rice with their chilli sauce is like a match made in heaven. The crave is real.

Satay Bee Hoon
.
Always been a fan of satay bee hoon but it is not a common dish found at hawkers and even after finding one, I seldom find a good one. This plate from Bak Kee Teochew Satay Bee Hoon at redhill market makes the mark with its generous amount of ingredients (especially the cuttlefish) and its thick satay sauce slathered all over the bee hoon.

Eng Kee Chicken Wings
.
Have been wondering whether the chicken wings here actually lived up to the hype after a certain prominent figure queued up for it. I would say that the fried chicken wings were better than the average ones found at neighbourhood breakfast beehoon stalls. Slightly crispy skin revealing moist chicken flesh underneath. Overall, I wouldn’t mind having it again but not to the extent of traveling down specially for this.

Prawn And Clams noodles ($7)
.
Just heard about @denisedeanna ‘s Deanne’s Kitchen and the awesome prawn noodles and by a stroke of luck chanced upon it while queuing for carrot cake. Wow, for a bowl of halal prawn noodles, I would never have guessed that the soup is made from absolutely zero pork bones. Definitely not too sweet nor did it felt dessert-like. The sweetness from the clams was just right. Ingredients were so generous and I love how the soup was lacking in the usual oiliness. Yellow mee with thin beehoon is a match made in heaven and I won’t have it any other way!

Kway Chup
.
The queue at Ah Kwang Kuey Chup located in tampines is evident of its popularity. Unfortunately, due to the stall owners’ age, their last day of business is 23 June. After about 30mins of queuing, we finally got our order. The braised big intestines was my absolute favourite, so tender and so tasty with no hint of the porky odour. All the other ingredients had been braised to perfection and was not too salty. The kway was also silky smooth. I’ll miss this when they are gone for good.

KL Hokkien Mee ($6)
.
Black KL hokkien mee from Dynasty Fried Porridge. Haven’t tried the fried porridge but this seductive black beauty caught my attention more. Huge portion for $6 topped with crispy pork lard. I would have preferred less noodles with more ingredients but the wok-hei is definitely on point. I was slurping up the remnant gravy off the plate at the end.
