$3.30 only for thin noodles, 2 soup wanton, 1 fried wanton, healthy portion of Char Siew and Chye Sim.

I love yong tau foo
I love curry / laksa
I love curry yong tau foo
But this stall's one was incredibly disappointing. Dont ever order it!
To be fair, ive not tried their original yong tau foo, so I won't say dont patronise this stall...just dont order the laksa yong tau foo ok!

Loy Kee is a household chicken rice restaurant, with small number of branches including food stall at Whampoa Market.
Theirs is a Cantonese type of chicken rice...so their chilli cmi.

Healthy portion of shrimp omelette, defo more than enough for 2 people..goes very well w Bee Hoon soup taste-wise

So shiok, I only remembered to take photo after I wiped out the whole bowl.
Only gripe is they advertise no rest hour, available all day long...but when I went at 240pm they said chef taking a break need to wait 1 hour

Noodles were just slightly more clumpy and sticky/wet than the way I like it...but at $3.50 for roast duck noodles, good value!

$5 for takeaway roast meat and steamed chicken rice from kopitiam opposite 1855 at 6th Avenue

Good tatse, no frills, solid portion

The magic of Song Kee has been repackaged into FAST FOOD at The Star Vista!
Unfortunately it wasn't fast (teething problems since its a new business) and the famous shiok fish dumplings (on its own, without noodles) dry version was not on the menu.

Slightly overpriced and slightly above average fishball noodles...I'll still go back to the original anytime!

Saw the set up of the stall, the master prepping each bowl of noodles and the patrons eating ba chor mee and I was sold!
Unfortunately, the $4.50 bowl looked great but tasted less than great. Soup was bland, noodles and liao were sufficient but lacking the zest of a great bowl of noodles that one would return for.

This stall was one of the few that had a line at the hawker centre above Tiong Bahru Market so I was drawn to it. When I was queuing I noticed the curious signboarda talking about a special char siew - apparently they use the armpit of a pig? Anyway when I asked the hawker about this special char siew she snubbed me saying its not available or something. Poor service! I went ahead to order a plate of their charsiew wanton mee plus dumplings anyway. Enjoyed the ~$5 meal in any case!

Comfort food on sunday afternoon at this modernised homey hainanese coffeeshop in tiong bahru never fails to warm your belly and your Singaporean soul. Pair with a water chestnut drink too :)


This Yong tau foo wins hands-down for variety of liao. Otah also have, pork belly also have. Wouldnt recommend coming here just for the laksa soup as its abit on the bland-sweet side. No minimum pieces of liao apparently, that's a plus! This bowl u see cost around $8-9.
