Don't be deceived by the seemingly empty appearance of the storefront; turn around and you'll see a line of eagerly waiting customers!
This was my first time visiting their original store, despite having had (and being very satisfied with) multiple experiences at their other branches. I'm extremely pleased to say that the chicken we bought here was just as good, if not even better! It took some time before we got to the front of the line, but when food tastes as good as this, I really can't complain.

This stall had the longest queue, and the springy noodles that their customers were happily slurping away looked so promising that I had to get it!
The Yong Tau Foo was too plain tasting for me despite it being fried but I did enjoy the flavourful noodles. Overall, just an ok dish for me but I will admit that it being soggy (probably because I had it in takeaway) contributed a large part to my mediocre experience. So I wouldn't be too quick to judge- after all the popularity of the stall should say something about it!

Curiosity got the better of me when I read that these were handmade so I got a portion with chives. Upon ordering, I was treated to a display of the stallkeeper making a fresh batch on the steamer, which got me very fascinated and very excited. Texture wise, the rolls (or better known as chee cheong fun locally) were definitely silky and smooth, but just a little too soft for my liking. It was light in tasting even after I doused it with soya sauce and chilli, which is understandable given that most of the customers here was the elderly. Definitely worth a shot if you're in the area- I rarely see handmade rice rolls in hawker centres nowadays and I think the traditional factor is worth an experience.

*Also, I'm pleased that they didn't even charge extra for takeaway, despite the considerable act of separating the sauce so that the rolls don't get soggy!

Chose vegetarian toppings (each riceroll allows you to choose 5 among a wide variety) of burdock root, wakame seaweed and emperor beans (supplement $0.30) because the meat options didn't really appeal to me.
Despite it being completely meat-free, this deceivingly small rice roll kept me reallyyy full for a long time! I think it must have been the generous amount of purple rice (I suspect the same kind used in pulut hitam because of their similar taste and texture) used to wrap the ingredients.

p.s. look out for their discounts given with some cards!

This comes recommended by my brother, who has been on a hunt for good salted egg yolk dishes. So when he had a craving today, I made sure to tag along to find out for myself how good it really was. Even at 4pm on a weekday, this place was bustling, and after tasting it, I could definitely see why. Although the chicken wasn't of amazing quality (well, no complaints at this price frankly), it was generously covered with the creamiest of sauces. The salted egg flavour itself was apparent, and the gentle heat from the chilli further elevated it. I tucked into the dish with much gusto, despite just having had lunch earlier.
The default comes without an egg, and is priced at $5, but because the protein to rice ratio isn't fantastic, I'd definitely recommend the egg add-on ($0.50)! I heard that there's even an add meat option, so if I'm feeling naughty I mighttt do that the next time, but this was already incredibly satisfying. Oh but first to finish the salted egg yolk chicken that we took back home too...😝

I love Kolo Mee, but the ones I've had in other places have mostly failed to impress. So, I was definitely pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this- the noodles were pleasantly springy and nicely flavoured with all the pork oil and juices! It really reminded me of my favorite wanton noodles in Indonesia (known as pangsit mie there), except this was somewhat a less oily version. The portion here runs a little small for me, so if I'd definitely recommend the Large portion. It's a difference of 60 cents for the upsize, but the amount of noodles was massive, which will surely please those with bigger appetites 😝

Unfortunately, the curry fell short in terms of flavours- it was lacking spice and the rich notes of coconut milk. The texture of the noodles were understandbly softer here, but it has soaked up the curry broth quite well! This bowl came with a generous amount of ingredients- a whole chicken wing, taupok and potatoes so all in all, it was still pretty comforting to have when consumed piping hot on a chilly rainy afternoon.

This time round, I decided to try out their char siew and I'm glad they do quite a good rendition of it! Even the lean parts of the meat was tender and sufficiently juicy. They gave quite a generous serving of sauce too, which coated my noodles well and made them absolutely slurp worthy! Their sambal sauce doesn't seem to be spicy at all, and only served to make the dish even more sweet, so for those who are looking for more of a kick can help themselves to the free flow green chilli at the side instead.
Unfortunately, my mother's order of soya sauce chicken didn't fare as well as my choice of meat; some parts were terribly undercooked that it was still very red. The parts that were cooked though, was still as tender as we remembered. I really hope this is a one time thing, because the chicken that we had at their Chinatown outlet was beautifully cooked.
*serving time (compared to the Smith street's stall)seems to be shorter and there is a condiments counter here so huge pluses for that! 😊

Ru Ji Fishball Noodles

I originally planned to get something else but when I saw newspaper clippings on the front of this stall, I made an impromptu stop here instead.
The real star has to be the (what I heard were) handmade fishballs here, they were bouncy and tasted light and fresh along with the clear soup.

So many other stalls that look good here- a 2nd visit has to be in order!

Fans of the Thomson Ming Fa BCM (including me) might be happy to know that they have a stall here too!
The noodles were well coated with an assortment of sauces, and came with a bowl of soup that had a generous serving of fishballs, fishcakes and a fish wanton.

I don't know how this place fares in comparison to their Michelin awarded original outlet but I am pretty satisfied with what I got!
I was kicking myself over ordering the horfun when I saw that most people got their yellow noodles instead. But it all turned out well because the horfun had a good chewy texture and went well with the sauce and sambal. The star of the stall, the chicken meat, was delightfully juicy and soft as well. This was indeed a simple dish done right! 🙌

Best side dish for your prawn noodles! Choose from a variety of ingredients, and they'll prepare and bring it to your table. I liked everything, but especially the crispy white thing on the bottom with fried prawn heads embedded in. It was light and such a delight to munch on! I was certain I would like their chilli, but I surprisingly preferred the sweet sauce, which to me, was a wonderful mild dip to complement the oily stuff.

I followed my heart & it led me to the fridge.
