My favourite prawn noodles to date! Robust broth, generous servings, pork lard & amazing seasoning! Especially their portion, so much more worth it than the usual big names in Singapore’s prawn mee scene. Their soup is also a notch above the rest - & they’re really generous with the soup unlike the bigger names. I’m usually a soupy prawn mee person but this is an exception! The dry versions are 50 cents pricier but really worth it! Pig tail prawn noodles go at 5.50 for soup & 6 for dry and the regular prawn mee is just at 4 for soup and 4.50 for dry! It’s a little far off but worth the trip down! Will definitely make it a point to come all the way down here to satisfy my prawn mee cravings from now on instead of settling with the pricier & more well known prawn mee stalls 😋

Honestly, soup was robust & tasty, but the choice of the ingredients were poor. This was the smallest portion of the seafood soup @ $6. For all the seafood soups, the fish chosen was frozen dory fish, doesn’t fit the soup well. Prawn was fresh and the other ingredients were ok. Ordered a seafood soup but oddly the ingredient that was the biggest part of the soup was the minced meat..... Waited at least 30 minutes for this during the lunchtime crowd & honestly it was a waste of my time. I also requested for the owner to give me extra soup, which he replied positively too. To my dismay, the soup was at HALF of the container. And the container is really small, not the usual kind, more comparable to a slightly bigger tauhuey container. Don’t think it’s worth the $6 starting price.

Might only patronise again if they change their choice of fish & if there’s no queue. If there’s a long queue in front of you, my advice would be don’t bother.

$15; super cheap considering the amount of items we got! Pork intestines, chicken, crazy amounts of mushrooms & veggies. They do have quite a big selection of ingredients. The mala bowl at medium spice is more spicy 辣 than 麻, could possibly be more 麻 imo. Nonetheless it’s a really good & affordable bowl of mala. Loved it! They also offer a soup version, might try it another time. But I would definitely patronise the shop, decent fragrance with cheap prices and generous portions.

Visited Three Good Guys today after hearing about their salted egg stir fry. In my honest opinion, I felt like this was more of a miss of me. The salted egg flavour was flat and one dimensional, just creamy and that’s all. There was nothing special about it but I can foresee why people would like this, guess salted egg just isn’t my thing! Got really gelat at the end.

Their Mala on the other hand was much better, hit all the good spots of a good MLXG. I’d personally suggest going for the mala instead, you can still order a small portion of salted egg one since there’s no minimum spend for one at all. Ordered da la and it was spicy yet very fragrant. Thumbs up for the Mala.

8 servings of veggies ($1/portion) & 1 pork skin ($2/meat portion) came up to $15.50, which came as a shock to me since there was no mention of a surcharge for the pot base at all on their signboards/menu. They could afford to have more transparent prices in the future — from what I understand they just opened a week ago!

I’ve never been so blown away by a plate of chicken rice LOL. The chicken here is tender and succulent and the sauce is just the cream on top, I’ve never had a chicken rice with such tender and juicy breast meat and the chicken skin is so silky and soft. The rice is fluffy and flavourful and the chili is amazing. Half a chicken for only $9 and rice for only 50 cents, truly cheap and good chicken rice. On the top of my list along with Tian Tian. But cheaper, haha.

Chicken was tough and underwhelming. Rice was mediocre. Only had this because Tian Tian was closed. And the queue was so long because all the tourists had to turn to this substandard alternative boo. $17.50 for half a chicken with egg and gizzards and 2 rice.

Amazing, rich and flavourful broth, probably my favourite. Always get the pig tail prawn mee starting at $5. Pig tails are always fresh and chewy and prawns are sweet. Weirdly the prawn noodles start at $6, while the pig tail prawn noodle combi start at $5 haha. Would gladly pick the combination of pork and prawns! A must try for prawn noodle lovers. Plus the ngoh hiang stall at the side is pretty good too.

Headed by budding entrepreneurs who revamped the stall passed on from their parents, the stall is digitalized, menu was fully digital and accepted grabpay, which was the reason why I was there actually. Got a 2 person set meal for $10, and there was a good amount of soy sauce chicken which was tender and succulent, so juicy! The rice was so good even on it’s own. Do give them a try!

First time trying a food court styled Mala & man it was good! This bowl came up to $14.80 which is obviously more expensive than a regular coffeeshop/hawker Mala bowl. Paid $3 for the base and the items are self service, pick and they will weigh it for you accordingly. The bowl was really good, the taste was definitely there & there were cinnamon sticks which constituted part of the base, really giving an oomph factor to the bowl! Can't wait for my next Mala already 🤤 & yes I ate this all by myself 🌚

I'm definitely onto this mala craze sweeping Singapore, I've been eating it on a bi-weekly basis & I can't stop craving for it. Hai Tian Fragrant Hot Pot is an alternative to the other Mala stall @ Bedok interchange. In my opinion, I enjoy Hai Tian's mala more because it's much less oily & the service is better, with more generous portions. Wait times still go up to 20 minutes during peak hours but all is well when I get my hands on a piping hot bowl of fragrant mala! This only cost $9 & prices differ depending on your choice of ingredients! Easties, give this a try! It's my favourite & I like it more than Riri's at Chinatown 🤤

A stone's throw away from Bras Basah MRT & SMU campus, it's a well known & affordable food choice for students in the vicinity. During peak periods, expect queues to snake all the way outside of the coffeeshop, but don't be daunted as the lines clear pretty quick. A must try is their Brinjal with Minced Pork which is my absolute favourite. They serve up quite a few salted egg dishes on certain days like salted egg chicken and fish, along with the usual cai fan choices! Pro tip: flash your SMU student card for a discount off the already affordable prices!

At $7, I finally tried the highly raved about Singapore Style Ramen from A Noodle Story @ Amoy St. Waited for about 15 minutes for it on an early Thursday evening. Sad to say that I don't see what's the rave about this bowl of noodle. Yes it's very well executed and presented with its lava egg, shrimp roll and torched chashu. But I just don't think it was as spectacular as everyone claims it to be. Haha #unpopularopinion But do give it a try either way, its pretty special, tastes like a pimped version of mee kia.
