We noticed a snake queue at this food stall (Food Opera Ion orchard) Friday lunch. 🐍 We suspect that it might be so tasty that people are willing to queue so we come at early lunch (11 am) Wednesday for a takeaway.

We tried their mee pok fishball noodle and it’s so delish! Mee pok is proportionately coated with the chili sauce and lard. The 6 yellowtail fishballs are so bouncy. We can’t say this is a hidden gem but we learn that they have been around since ‘60s and used to be in Toa Payoh.

We are quite curious for their fish dumpling and fish cake. Hope to try them next time!! 🤩

As luck would have it, we found “Jian Bo Tiong Bahru Shui Kueh” while we wait for our dinner in another restaurant in Toa Payoh food allay. Their Shui Kuehs are still warm after 30 mins commuting time (Counting from when we got our takeaway until we reach home). We just love their smooth rice cake topped with crunchy preserved radish. The chilli might not be as much as in their original Tiong Bahru outlet but it tastes super power! 🌶 🔥 😍

When you come in group and have someone who can brew traditional tea properly. Then we suggest go for a pot. This tea pot is shared among 4 persons with refillable hot water. The Kong’s garden tea has deep aroma and fits well with all savoury dishes we have. We also enjoy our experience of traditional tea brewing (DIY).😍
P.S. the wet towel here is free (but if you don’t use, that’s fine #zerowaste 😉)

Couldn’t miss this ala-carts dish. Fried Ngoh Hiang is how it should look and taste like. Crispy bean curd skin. Pork rolls are seasoned to perfection. So good that we want to know the recipe! 😋 The dish is served with sweet chilli sauce.👌

When you are tired of chewing on pork ribs and want easy meal, the pork tenderloin is for you!
Big garlic along with plenty of tenderloin strips are in the soup bowl. The soup is peppery. Tenderloin is not hard or chewy. Help yourself with the chilli condiment.
P.S. you can ask for soup top-up after you finish this bowl.

Totally love these dough Fritters. Crispy outside and soft dough inside and no oily residue. What else could we ask more? 👍🤠

Try their Nyonya snacks for the first time and order
1. Set A.3 which contains glutinous rice, coffee, and Kueh. Pity that we were not explained that we can choose between ondeh or Kueh in this set else we would have picked ondeh. 🤓 anyhow, we enjoy it a lot! The glutinous rice with peanuts and spicy shrimp paste on the side goes along very well. It is a must try Set!
.
2. Lemper Udang: glutinous rice with spicy shrimp filling tastes nice except that it is quite difficult to eat as we unwrap some burnt bits of banana leaves and try hard not to smear it with our glutinous rice. 🦐
.
We would definitely come back to try other items for afternoon tea.👍

Long queue is a norm for this famous scissor curry rice in Thomson. Be prepared to wait for at least 7 mins for each visit. The Hainanese curry slather on these toppings we picked (Clockwise: Prawn Fritters $1.50/2 Pcs, Ikan Billis $1.50, Cabbage $0.80, rice $0.60). We love it that they have a price board and quite a coincidence that most customers in our row end up paying $4.40
.
Prawn fritters are still crispy and so lucky that we pick this before they run out. The ikan Billis might be too sweet for some unlike Nasi Padang place that usually make this dish salty. The boiled cabbage (Chap Chye style) is not to be missed no matter what you choose along with curry sauce. Happy to try out (tasty & affordable) although we hope that ingredients are fresh & healthy! 💪
P.S. curry sauce is not for sale!! 😉

Nyonya Kuehs & Bak Chang @ "Kim Choo Kueh Chang" (Joo Chiat)🍮
*****
Found this historic snack stall (opened since 1945) while exploring around Joo Chiat
(The snack shop is next door to Rumah Bebe) and surely a must visit place for tourists & locals alike. 😎
.
We tried a combo set (a variety of kuehs) $2.80, mini Nyonya Chang $1.20, Rampah Udan $1.50 .The nyonya kuehs taste not so sweet with just the right munch texture. What we prefer more are changs. Savoury & generous with the fillings. We also bought their Nyonya Pandan Kaya Jar $5 for kaya fix later!!! 👌

After a #Pokémon raid in Botanic Garden, we were craving for Murtabak. Unwilling to waste calories without full satisfaction. Even there is one Murtabak place in Newton food center, we decided to take the trip all the way to Bugis. 🚊
.
We found ourselves right in Kampong Glam and here we were at "Singapore Zam Zam", the Institution of Murtabak since 1908 (no outlets other than this original one). We ordered "mutton murtabak" (highly recommended) medium size $8.50 & fish masala plus Teh Tarik & Teh-C. It cost us in total $15. Very wallet friendly & scrumptious meal in SG! 👍👍👍
.
Murtabak is not greasy like other places we tried. The murtabak skin is crisp & lathered with minced mutton. You can order 1 to share for 2 persons but we regret doing so.
Definitely recommend to order fish masala along to get a kick-ass spicy level to the max! The cucumber & ketchup shall be gone though. However, surely this won't be our last visit!! 😋

Long queue 4 kuehs & tasty Chee Chong Fun @ Jian bo Chwee kueh 🍥
*******
One of the early stalls in the newly revamped Tiong Bahru Market, this place is raved by its Chwee Kueh (rice cake snack) and sketched in "We ❤️Tiong Bahru" by neighborhoods series. The store has long queue compared to other stalls in the market. ☺️
.
Queued there for 10 mins and got served by the lady boss who deligently handled the store by herself. She scraped Chwee kueh 1 by 1 and pour preserved raddish (chye poh) & chilli. We ordered 5 pieces of Chwee kueh ($2.5) & 2 Chee Cheong fun ($2.5). Although the store is famous for their Chwee kueh, we found the Chee Cheong fun (steamed rice roll) tastier! Anyway, this is a cheat eat and watch out for the daily sugar intake.😜

Sweet Retro moment! @ Galicier Pastry 😽
*****
Such a heritage eat at this old school bakery place nestling just next door to Tiong Bahru Bakery. At 11:30 am we steadily make our way into this hectic stall. Luckily we know what we want to try as the place is tiny & jam packed with a lot of patrons scrambling for orders. 😅
.
We proceed to order a variety of kuehs,
almond cherry tart and Apple pie. 🍮🍪🍰
* Apple pie $3: Worth every cents. Delicious and very rich chunky apples! 🍎
* Putu Ayu ($4 for 5 pcs): this little mix color cup is not so sweet and this is neither our favourite.💁‍♂️
* Lemper Udang 2 pcs ($1.3 each)(the spicy flavour of dried shrimp is coming through and delicious to eat in room temperature)🦐
* Kueh Ambon $2 (the yellow honeycomb shaped Kueh is distinctively sweeter than other kuehs & a must try)🧀
* Kueh Salat $1.1 (no difference than others)💁‍♂️
* Almond cherry tart $1.4 (surprisingly good with full bite of cherry 🍒)
We noticed quite a few price jump in some kueh items but can always vouch for apple pie, almond cherry tart and cookies which are reasonably priced & won't disappoint! 🤑
