Had onion rings, coconut pork ribs ($26) and tandoori chicken ($18) at this corner in Little India. The pork ribs were very tasty and aromatic, and were moist enough despite the dry rub and dessicated coconut it was prepared with. The chicken was just as tasty, but was a little red, so perhaps it could have been cooked for just a little longer. While the food tasted good, the meal was relatively pricey ($18 for chicken with no accompanying sides??) Luckily, we used The Entertainer and got the mains 1-for-1, which gave them a lot more value-for-money.

The pizza was well worth the $25 as the Australian wagyu was extremely tender, and went amazingly with the caramelised onions, mixed mushrooms and gooey cheese. The other half was also sufficiently covered with cured meats, making for a very satisfying meal. I would, however, skip out on the coastal wings, which weren't bad but not the best deal out there as we paid $14 for 3. Of course, the ambience was great and service was prompt :)

Food bloggers have stated that the gula melaka used here is "as thick as hot fudge". I do not disagree. The stall is very generous with quality gula melaka, and their ice is very finely shaven. I'd dare say this was better than the 7 teochew chendols I had in Penang two weeks ago combined! This is a definite must-have when at the ABC hawker centre.

You know that your hokkien mee is going to be good after a long wait, since each batch of noodles takes time to simmer in broth. But this stall makes great hokkien mee ($4/$5/$6), with strong umami flavour while the noodles maintained their bite and the prawns were fresh and of a good size. It didn't leave us thirsty, like a lot of savoury hokkien mees do (perhaps owing to MSG). The sambal was pretty good as well, with additional saltiness lent to it through the inclusion of ikan bilis. Be prepared to queue for around 30-50 mins and maybe grab a surprisingly good pisang goreng from the malay food stall next door while waiting, if you're going in the late afternoon.

This stewed bread porridge had a wee bit of bite to it, while ensuring that all of the prawn broth was melded together with the carbs and spices. The prawns were well-cooked and the dish was well-seasoned. The portion was quite large and very filling, while the flavour from the prawn stock gave the dish a definite richness. A definite must-order when here!

First time visiting .Elia at Jiak Chuan Street in the Keong Saik area and it was great! We had Spice Girls (handmade linguine with curry sauce and grilled chicken) and Three Little Pigs upsized (pork katsu with curry sauce, cabbage, plus add-ons). The linguine was al dente and the grilled chicken was perfectly seasoned to complement the curry sauce. My partner absolutely loved his katsudon. The staff were lovely as well. Would definitely recommend this place, as we had the best cafe experience here, in Singapore. Far better food served as compared to most cafes. Will be back to have more for sure!! 😛
