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

To my disappointment after all the effort of getting there -
a little tough and dry .

Even when eaten fresh on the same day .

Not the best rice but you won’t be disappointed with freshly fried wings and a pretty good chilli .

Unusually quiet at Ghim Moh market today and I later realised why -🤣

Always a long queue at this stall .

I would rate it average - the texture of the Cheong fun was not as Q and smooth as I like it to be .

3 dollars for this 🙃 - wouldn’t say it’s value for money as opposed to paying 3.50 for a full deal of say wanton mee or maybe chicken rice .

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 dream of food .
