I can safely say, this is one of the best seafood mee sua ($5) I've had. The sauce is thick and incredibly smoky, and so darn flavourful from the seafood stock that is used to make the dish. The noodles were also nicely springy, and the portion was pretty generous. They gave quite a few clams and a prawn and they were all very fresh!

This Char Siew Chee Chong Fun ($4) is famous in Pek Kio Market, and I can see why. The Chee Chong Fun itself is not soggy at all, and stayed pretty solid while soaked in the sauce. They put quite abit of char siew into the Chee Chong Fun, that gave it really alot of flavour. This is definitely a notch above the rest, but me and my friends do find it abit too sweet.

Was actually quite surprised to find mee kia available at a prawn mee stall and decided to give it a try. I got the $3 portion and it was pretty substantial. The noodles were nice and springy and prawns were very fresh! The soup is definitely an important element, and it was good, with abundant flavour coming from the prawn heads and pork ribs that were used to make the broth.

DISCLAIMER: I couldn't find the location tag of this stall on Burpple, but it is called Xiong Kee Roast Meat, located at 87 Whampoa Drive.

Now this is one roast meat stall you should never miss. The roasted pork here is fabulous, with extremely crispy skin and succulent meat. The roasted duck has a slight crispy skin, with really oily, tender meat that has that slight herbal taste. Both meats are probably one of the best I've had so far. 2 meats for 2 people is only $10! This stall has set the bar real high.

Most people working in the area will know this hidden jem, and this is one really good find indeed. The Sliced Fish Soup ($4.50) is quite different from the rest, as the soup is so much more flavourful than the rest, probably due to the deep fried omelette that is added to the soup. The fish slices given were very fresh as well. Do get the fermented beans at the side for that umami kick!

May look like regular fishball noodles, but this is a notch above. The fishball and meatballs are handmade, and they contain little or no flour in them, creating a different meaty texture, with a great flavour. The noodles were springy and beware, the chilli packs a punch! It's my go-to whenever I'm here 😍

May look like a normal plate of chicken with rice, but contains one of the best Prawn Paste Chicken I've eaten. The Prawn Paste Chicken Rice ($5.80) from this coffee shop has a variety of ingredients, and the prawn paste chicken was so crispy and juicy, yet fragrant at the same time. Really appreciated the bite sized portions! The chilli given is to die for as well, as it is garlic-packed. Great if you are around in the area!

With the rainy season here, I started craving for meals with hot soups, and this hits the spot. The Sliced Fish Bee Hoon ($4.30) from this coffeeshop boasts THICC slices of fish that were so fresh and a very comforting soup that is cloudy from hours of boiling fish bones. Paired with their chilli, this is one dish that will warm not only your belly, but your heart as well 😍

Wanted to explore Toa Payoh, and I'm glad I went to this Hawker centre. This place is filled with stalls that are well known by the people staying in the area, including this oyster omelette from Tian Tian Fa ($4/6/8). This is a drier version as compared to other stalls and many will appreciate the numerous crispy bits that go so well with the juicy plump oysters.

The curry rice ($3.70 for 2 meat 1 veg) from Toa Payoh Scissors Cut Curry Rice also satisfied my cravings for that, due to its thick flavourful curry sauce. I do wish their chicken cutlet is crispy though.

The Pig Organ Soup ($5.10 with yam rice) here boasts a huge variety of ingredients, from loads of spine meat, to well cooked portions of liver. The soup here is indeed refreshing, as it isn't too salty, and it is packed with flavour from the salted vegetables. All ingredients go so well with the vinegar chilli. Will be back for more 😍

Ever seen a plate of char kway teow ($4/5) so green? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Besides the amount of green veggie they gave (which I greatly appreciated), the char kway teow was so flavourful, with a good amount of wok hei. It came with 2 plump prawns and quite a handful of cockles. Probably one of the best plate of char kway teow I've had 😍

Messy, but extremely satisfying. The standard duck rice ($4) comes with rather substantial portion of duck meat and a braised egg and I must say: the quality is excellent. All ingredients including the rice has a strong braised flavour. One of their specialty is their chilli, which lifts the dish to a whole new dimension.

They did not neglect the soup as well, as the herbal notes truly made the experience refreshing as well.
