大虾面
The famous big prawn noodles lives up to its name indeed. Once you get the hang of it, the tender prawn meat glides easily off of each shell; it leaves you with a satisfaction akin to popping a whole row on that roll of bubble wrap you keep hidden under your desk in case of work stress overload— don't deny it. No matter how packed the eating place, this big bowl of glorious prawn mee is worth any lunch hour wait.

Here's a simple price list for your reference:
$1.00 tou poh
$1.00 腐竹片 bean skin
$1.20 五香 ngoh hiang
$1.60 虾枣 prawn roll
$1.60 猪肝 liver roll
$1.60 脆虾饼 prawn cracker
$2.20 贯肠 sausage

$5.80 小 noodles
$8.80 中 noodles
(Abt $11.80 for giant prawns)
$1.40 lime juice

Tip: Go for the healthier all-white rice noodles, or mix it in with your yellow egg noodles to lower the calories.

德生成山瑞補汤

Tucked away in a quiet hawker centre, the sister of the popular Ser Seng Turtle Soup Restaurant sells more affordable turtle soup for the soul.

It's cheaper because they don't serve brown rice and probably use less XO cognac in their soup, but you can always BYO. The turtle is well cooked, and the soothing herbal soup is perfect for a rainy day.

I have not met a happier couple selling humble fare in a wet market. Their warm soup makes my tummy smile, and their warm smiles make my heart melt.

In fact, they practise a more sustainable business model: They don't sell turtle eggs here, giving the baby turtles a chance to mature into adults and continue the next generation of this vulnerable highly-prized species.

$35 Claypot + $0.50 a bowl of rice (pictured)
[$10 / 14 / 18 / 20 / 25 individual soup bowl options]
[$35 / 50 Claypot options]

(Was open on 初三)
Three go-to dishes for sharing

肉骨茶 · Classic Claypot
卤猪手 · Braised Pork Knuckle
姜丝麻油鸡 · Ginger Sesame Chicken

A pleasant mix of Singaporean and Malaysian style, this bak kut teh melts in the mouth like how the shop's backstory melts my heart.

The best bit: What better way to help others than to eat for a good cause.
$6~7 ea dish
Tip: the Claypot soup is tastier than the 面线 mee sua soup. So unless you're craving noodles, these dishes go better with 白饭 rice 。
