Taste Test

Tempted by good reviews, I try out these places with high expectations.

Compared to the beef pho which was outstanding , this paled in comparison.

The vegetables were sat out too long so they lacked the freshness or jucyness I was looking for. Would be better if the ratio of vegetables to vermicelli was more :)

The spring roll wrapper was also a little under moistened at some parts so they were hard and didn’t do very well for my stomach which was already not feeling so well .

Go for the beef pho I say :)
That was faultless .

While most eat kwey chap for the innards, I enjoy this dish for the smooth silky and QQ kwey Teow.

I love how old school the salted vegetables and beancurd taste and that the broth was flavourful.

Really simple but hearty meal for a rainy weather.

Manned by an elderly couple :) with warm service.

Kim’s satay

What ?!! Muah Chee in a satay shop ? yes ! You heard right.

Fresh, tender , moist and coated with not too sweet peanuts 🥜 .

Sharing the same stall with Kim’s satay - one of the best kept secrets of the old airport hawker.

Must try the old school freshly made bread ,egg tarts and coconut tarts here.

Got a batch of coconut tarts the last time so it’s egg tarts this time round !

Not too sweet , moist and always a favourite with the young and old alike :)

I loves these soft , pillowy , squishy squashy donuts.

Made fresh daily using old school traditional bread making methods .

So good !

One of my favourite Ang ku kuehs - while most would queue for Poh Cheu, I am happy to settle with Lina’s .

I like that the skin is made just right - not too thick and the salted bean fillings are not too sweet too.

One salty bean and one peanut for a nice tea time treat today.

Was a little traumatised today though - was told off quite unkindly by an elderly lady manning the shop for taking photos of some of their Kuehs on display .

So just a kind word of advice to you if you are visiting the shop - please ask for permission to take photos .

Really lovely and fresh flavours of the salad but was looking for a more distinctive Vietnamese marinate for the chicken - it seemed to be lacking in that Smoky flavour I was looking for in a grilled chicken.

Would be nice if the chicken was served a little warmer against the cool salad for a nice contrast.

If you are hungry - this might not be sufficient as a main meal 🙏

Pretty disappointed with this dish although I did see that it looked like a popular item that most would order .

Chilli was so sweet , the egg / chestnut item doesn’t tatse anything like tradition and the beehoon was really ahem .... ....

I was expecting much more from this dish given the price .

The egg was stiff and hard - not suggestive of a fresh egg at all .

Didn’t appreciate that the long bean was deep fried , it just adds to the overall greasiness of the whole dish .

Interesting spongy textures with homemade red bean .

Go for the “butterfly” instead - I found that more well made - fluffy inside and drips outside .

The Kopi from the drink stall at ion was surprisingly really really good - better than the ones from the popular names .

This seems to be a popular choose amongst the regulars at Ghim Moh as compared to the one with the blue sign board 🤣

Huge and generous pieces of fish -but the soup was definitely quite laden with msg . ☺️

Saw some reviews of Yi Jia bakery on Facebook so popped in to try.

Other than the hot tea , everything was bad , right down to the service .

The toast was stale so when you chew on it , it tastes like a dried out sponge .

The egg tart which I didn’t bother to feature was so sweet and the pastry was limp . Asked for it to be warmed up but no such service available even though this was clearly a bakery .

Just come for the drinks - Kopi and tea.
Skip the breads and cakes ( which are made with margarine not real butter ) . Not worth it .
