Don't sleep on this. In fact I don't know any other place that does 炒笋粿 in a carrot cake style. I must say this is really awesome for several reasons. 1. the soon kueh skin has a really QQ texture and in large pieces so you can happily chew on it. 2. extra aroma from the black sauce and the oil 3. more flavours with the egg and the radish.

I actually really liked this a lot. Being a kaya toast lover, I've had my fill of generic kaya toasts but I appreciate how this one was crisp and toasted on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Not pictured, but there was a good amount of kaya and slightly melted butter. Best part is that the 3 pieces of bread only cost $1.80 in total! I would definitely come back again (the other food at the coffeshop are supposedly good too)

Famous place to settle your salted egg cravings. Even after such a long time the standard of the salted egg sauce is still really good. Very flavourful. Portions are more worth it (if you're dining with someone else) when you order a plate to share and get the rice separately.

Supposesly famous, but I felt this was just about average. The broth is both herbal and peppery at the same time, not sure whether it is intentional, it also seems that whenever the broth was refilled it would taste slightly different. There was quite a substantial amount of meat and other ingredients, but not exceptionally tasty.

Very very affordable pricing, this was $7.50 ($1 for the cheese) and comes with sauce (I chose salted egg for another $1), a side, and salad. The portion is huge and the fish was well-cooked too. Butter rice was very fragrant. Very underrated and value-for-money. Will definitely come back often.

Set comes with a side and drink. Very very value for money and cheap somemore. Curry was nice and flavourful, meat was tasty (there's a variety of meats as well). Like its name suggests, it's like a tea hut, very very cosy corner. This stall has been here in TPY for a long time and I hope it continues to stay there as I will frequently visit it.

I feel that this is a very very underrated place that deserves more attention (even though its salted egg neighbour gets more attention). The beehoon, though not the most flavourful I've eaten, still tastes very homely and they gave a lot of ingredients. Good for 2 small eaters, but I still happily finished it. Their pork chop rice was fantastic as well. The owners are SUPER friendly, chatted with them for a bit while waiting for our order, and they repeatedly assured us that our food was coming soon. Will be back again.

I always appreciate handmade stuff as there is so much effort behind every single piece of food presented. The mini paus are bite sized and I got the lotus and char siew pau. I like how even though the pau is small, there is sufficient filling to fill the bite with flavour. It's a very good option for people who feel like having additional sides on top of their meal without feeling too full. Though each pau is $0.60, I would buy this again definitely.

Very very worth the $5 and tastes so good and homely. The chicken was juicy and tender, the rice soft and fragrant, the sambal chilli was also delicious, and the fact that you have a free flow serving of fried crumbs just makes it perfect to eat. It's the kind where eating it doesn't make you full but actually increases your appetite for more so I guess it's pretty much magic, imo.

Saw a long queue there and true enough, discovered that this is a very tasty dish. It wasn't too wet nor too dry. The real deal is the sauce. Note that this is the slightly more crispy version. Up to individual tastes really but I guarantee you'll regret getting only that $5 portion to share


This is one underrated stall. Not much of a queue but the kway chap is really pretty good. The kway was so smooth and soft you could almost slurp it up! Ingredients are fresh and the innards are springy to the taste. Simple yet comforting meal for a rainy day.


Typical dish, nothing too amazing. Bread was nice and crispy but the chicken was pretty meh, could have been more flavourful. Popular supper spot, just go for their pratas!


just another avenue for me to post things cos I bored af lol
