Heard that this stall is famous and decided to give it a try. Compared to the other famous brands that I've tried, I must say this is a pretty worth it place to go to if you're around the area, as for just $6, you get 3 thick slabs of pork ribs that are really tender. You don't even need much sauce to go with the meat! However, the soup isn't too good.

They have an interesting fried porridge ($5) that is probably one of a kind as they basically light up the porridge in flames in the wok to give it the distinct smoky taste. This is probably not for everyone, but I do find it rather flavourful.

The fried pork intestines ($6) came in a disappointing portion, but its really done well. I love how it's crispy and flavourful, but doesn't have too much of the odour.

Now this is a really good place to satisfy your oyster omelette cravings.

The fried oyster ($4/6/8/10) is for people that love their omelette on a drier side. The omelette is extremely fragrant and not too dry, but you still get your crispy bits fix. Paired with their juicy oysters, you're definitely in for a treat.

The oyster omelette ($6/8/10/12) is a starchier and wetter version of the omelette, and it comes drenched with generous amount of seafood chilli sauce. This is my personal favourite, due to the heavier seafood taste and its uniqueness in its hearty flavour. This style is a rare find in Singapore!

Their carrot cake ($3/4/5) is also worth a mention as the carrot cake has the smoky flavour incorporated in it. Totally love how the black version has caramelised bits!

This stall is a must try if you are in Circuit Road Food Centre!!! ๐Ÿ˜

You know you are near bedok 85 when you smell the smoke coming out from the many grill stalls in the Hawker centre. Chong Pang Huat is one of the cheaper stalls there selling satay and chicken wings, and that does not stop them from serving up quality food. The chicken/pork satay (60c each) have nice charred bits and were really succulent, especially the chicken one!

The chicken wings ($1.30 each) are also really smoky and is seasoned just right. I love how it isn't too sweet as well. Will definitely be back for more ๐Ÿ˜

Had the all famous Yishun Laksa ($2.80/3.30) to go, and my oh my, even when it's left out there for an hour, it still tastes so good. Definitely a hearty soup with bold coconut milk flavours, this laksa has firm noodles with fresh cockles as well. Worth the 45 min wait? It just might!

Finally tried the all famous Nasi Lemak ($3.50) from Changi Village Hawker Centre, and I loved how fluffy and fragrant the rice was. You can really taste the lemak in the rice itself and really, you can just eat the rice itself without anything else. The chicken wings were nicely fried too!

My only two gripes is that the portion is really quite small, and the sambal is abit too sweet for me. Other than that, it's worth a try if you are around the area!

Probably most Singaporeans living in the east would have heard of Bedok 85 Market, and yes it's really darn good each time I head there. After many experiences with the different stalls, I feel like the 2 bak chor mee stalls are pretty similar in standards. The fried oyster omelette are all pretty good as well with the crispy bits and rather fresh oysters.

I must say, the sambal stingray from the leftmost stall in the market (I can't remember the name of the stall ๐Ÿ˜ญ) is really generous with its portions! The medium sized portion looks like the large one in most stalls!

This is some legit old school western food right here. The chicken chop ($7) is really well seasoned and grilled, with a crispy crust that adds a nice texture. The meat is surprising really tender, and I would say this is really one of the better ones out there.

One peek into the coffeeshop at night and you know what's popular there. This is one of my go-to spots for mookata, as the meats given are so well seasoned and tender. Don't worry about their portions as they are generous with it. A 3 person set ($38) is more than enough for 3 hungry bellies!

Circuit Road Hawker Centre has an abundant amount of vegetarian food and this wanton mee ($3.50/$4) from Meng Heng Vegetarian Food is one of the best I've tried. The noodles is the star of the dish, due to its firm texture and the chilli sauce that coats around it is really addictive.

The Vegetarian Otah ($2 per piece) from Victor Veggie is interesting as well and has a nice spicy kick!


Finally tried this! The Grilled Chicken Chop ($5.90)had the right amount of char and the herb potatoes was one of the best roasted potatoes that I've tried. It had a really flavourful savoury crisp on the outside, and creamy on the inside. The mushroom rice was lacklustre though. The handmade meatballs ($5.80) we ordered on the side came with 6-7 meatballs and you can taste that they were freshly made!

In short, this is definitely a notch above any Hawker centre western food but I queued 1h for this (it's normal to do so, as all items are made to order) and I wouldn't think it is worth an hour's wait? Half hour wait is fine ๐Ÿ˜‚

Curry Hor Fun?? What is going on?? The very unique curry chicken hor fun ($10 for medium size) from this zi char stall is drenched in really fragrant curry and has loads of fresh chicken and fish slices.

The claypot big prawn glass noodles ($15 for small, enough for 2 don't worry) came with 6 large prawns. Though the prawns weren't the freshest, the glass noodles really soaked up all of the umami flavours coming from the prawn and has that beautiful wok hei.

The salted egg yolk pork ribs ($15 for medium) is quite different from other zi char stalls as it is dry on the outside but don't worry. The meat sure is tender and succulent.

What a good find๐Ÿ˜ will be back real soon once this whole situation is over!

Love the soup from the prawn and pork ribs noodles ($6) here as you can taste the fragrance of the prawn within the soup itself. Portion wise isn't too bad; quite bit of pork ribs were given together with the prawn!

Of course, some wu xiang to go with your noodles is recommended ๐Ÿ˜
