Aw's rendition of minced pork noodles is actually quite different from other BCM stalls. Their noodles were all generously coated with their chilli sauce and vinegar and it was really quite spicy! The taste of their chilli sauce seems like those in KL chilli ban mian. Though flavourful, I still preferred the usual BCM with chilli that is full of dried shrimp flavours. Their signature noodles bowl may be $5.50, but they come with quite a few ingredients like prawn, abalone, clams(?) and fish dumpling. Still not bad of a bowl though!

Saw so many people having this mama hotpot and I was so happy I had this!

The mama hotpot for 2 pax ($23) came generous with many ingredients such as large prawns, squid and mussels. All seafood ingredients were fresh and we especially loved the prawns as they were so plump and juicy!

The soup is notable as well due to its robust and rich profile while being not really spicy. I can imagine this being really lovely in a rainy weather, slurping all noodles together with it! The runny egg yolk with the noodles just makes it even better 😍

Definitely coming back to have this again 😍

Have heard about this western stall selling pretty good pizzas and finally got a chance to try!

We got the Pancetta pizza ($19 for 12 inch) and it came pretty sizable and maybe too much rocket leaves 😂 you can still taste the lovely savoury flavour from the Pancetta beneath and from the tender meatballs as well! The crust is rather chewy and quite enjoyable. Not bad of a pizza!

We also ordered the Braised Angus Beef in a calzone ($27) and this was enjoyable too. Really tender beef chunks were hidden within the crust, and we liked how saucey the dish was. Definitely very filling too!

Not bad of a pizza place in a hawker centre!

Rosti from a hawker? Yes please!

We had the Creamy Mushroom Chicken Rosti ($10.90) and the Signature Saigon Pork Rosti ($11.90). The rosti itself has a good crispy crust with a soft texture within. Love how the potato taste is really strong! But I do wish that the crust can be thicker. Perfect with the sour cream provided! The chicken is well marinated and quite tender. The sauce reminds me of the old school mushroom sauce from the neighbourhood western stalls. Pretty satisfying with the chicken!

The Saigon Pork cutlet was tender and well seasoned with some kind of Vietnamese marinade. Wish there was so sauce to pair it though! The pickled vegetables was an interesting twist to pair with the rosti!

An option to consider when you're around the area definitely!

During this rainy season, one dish I crave is fish head steamboat, and the one from this zi char stall really doesn't disappoint. Their cook is good, making other zi char dishes really good as well!

The Fish Head Steamboat ($35) came in a big pot with numerous vegetable ingredients and fish head slices. There may be quite some bones in each of the pieces, but they do have quite some meat as well. The fish head meat had a wonderful bite, with fresh sweet fish flavours coming in. Their soup is really the highlight, with rich robust flavours coming from the anchovies, vegetables and fish head. Its super addictive!

Their BBQ Sotong Squid ($36 for 3, seasonal price) is another of their speciality and I highly recommend getting them. Each squid slice is tender yet chewy and they were packed with so much seafood sweetness and smokiness from the grill. Pair them with their homemade green chilli sauce and it's really perfect.

Even their vegetable dish is worth a mention. Their Stir Fried Potato Leaves ($18 for medium) is fresh and all generously drenched in a robust sauce and the fried preserved vegetables on top made the dish so much more complex with its contrasting crispy texture and the smoky savoury flavours.

Definitely be back again!

Hidden within Plaza Singapura's Kopitiam is this teochew noodles which were pretty satisfying!

I had the meatball noodles ($7.10 with addition of extra noodles) which came with quite a handful of meatballs in a meat broth, paired a bowl of springy noodles. The noodles had a chewy texture and were all generously coated in a savoury chilli sauce that has notes of vinegar and dried shrimp. There were quite a bit of pork lard oil too, which made the noodles even more delicious. Love the old school flavour of the noodles!

The meat broth was not bad and the meatballs were quite bouncy. This is definitely an option to consider if you are nearby!

Now I really believe this is how all hor fun should be. I've had this before but my recent experience was even better!

What makes this Beef Hor Fun ($6) stand out is the enormous amount of wok hei flavour in their noodles. The wok hei flavour adds so much flavour to the dish and it actually has a bitter aftertaste that I still appreciated. The noodles were all drenched in thick garlicky savoury sauce and it was so good I slurped them all up! The beef slices were really tender too. The portion was great and this was such a satisfying meal!

We also got quite a variety of satay ($0.80 each) and chicken wings ($1.40 each) from ABC Satay Chicken Wings and most were good! The chicken wings had a good savoury sweet marinade and were very tender and succulent. Though the mutton satay were tough, the chicken ones were tender and all were smoky. A good sharing dish!

The Oyster Omelette ($6 for larger portion) from Tanglin were delightful too! The egg omelette is more starchy than crispy, which is actually the kind I prefer due to the more silky smooth texture. Oyster were plump and really juicy; many of them were bursting with juices in my mouth! Pair them with their garlicky spicy chilli and gets even better.

Finally tried Satay Bee Hoon ($5 for larger portion) from Soon Huat and I can see why people love this! The sauce rich but not cloying, and has a good savoury sweet peanut flavour. We actually prefer the satay sauce with yellow noodles instead, as the richer taste of the yellow noodles complemented so well with the thick sauce! It's similar to mee rebus! There were quite a few ingredients too, especially some cuttlefish and fresh cockles.

Among the few fish soup stalls in Ghim Moh, I believe this shines about the rest. With quite a robust fish broth that is also flavoured by the fried egg bits, Hong Sheng Fish Soup's double fish soup ($6) definitely is a comforting meal. Though the fried fish slices were really thick, I wished that the sliced fish slices given were a little bigger. All fish slices were fresh nonetheless! Get their chili sauce mixed with fermented bean sauce for extra spicy umami kick!

Hong Sheng Fish Soup

A relatively new addition to Redhill Food Centre, I was intrigued by the long lines at this hor fun stall.

True enough, this plate of Beef Hor Fun ($5.50) was satisfying. The noodles were silky smooth and had a moderate amount of wok hei, not too much and not too little. Definitely lived up to their name! The sauce was savoury, with a good amount of garlic within. Beef slices were quite tender, except the parts I got with some tendon within.

This plate definitely got me continuously slurping up the noodles, and I can't wait to try their seafood white bee boon next time!
