Combo set, at just $7.50! Slurppilicious thick white beehoon doused in lor mee style gravy with pretty thicccc slices of beef, with some taugay! The set comes with a bowl of beef bowl soup and beef balls!

At $8nett, this may seem like a pricey food court meal. But hey, dished from all other stalls were around the price range of $6-$8 or more as well! The huge portion feeds 2 (unless you’re 1 incredibly big eater), with a lot more beef slices than the dry beef noodle combo set ($7.50). The kwayteow were extremely charred and each bite was filled with wokhei goodness. So charred and so aromatic that it stole the attention away from the dry beef noodle combo set which wow-ed me at first bite too. ‘Served with bean sprouts and some greens too, in a way a ‘balanced’ meal after all? 😅

While this stall sells pig's organ, their century egg porridge is a must-try too! (No wonder it gets a 4.4/5 rating on Food Panda! Papa discovered this century egg porridge place as he explores more neighbourhood eats during this covid period. Love the youtiaos that came along - only wish there were more to go along with the porridge! The rice bits were smooth and creamy - with aromatic sesame oil wafting with each sip. Love it that it wasnt watery (that's quite a put off!) There's also the option to choose between lean pork/ chicken shreds, and to add extra century egg! One could never get enough of century eggs - yes, no?

As good as Sembawang White beehoon, or Boon Tong Kee's baimifen! The broth was rich, with a pretty good serving of sliced fish, clams and eggs! They were very, very very generous with their serving of pork lard too!

The irony of moonlight eats in broad daylight
Moonlight horfun is not new to most locals - with its name derived from the moon-like yolk sitting neatly on a pile of dark horfun (thanks to the effects of wokhei and some dark sauce). This portion serves 2, but left the boy super, super bloated along with a side of 8 harcheonggai! Very fattening but very satisfying too

Insanely gratifying meal of all things unhealthy - the calories from all forms (thicccc coconuttiness of the curry, fried cutlet and.... addition of charsiew (+$1.50) were worth it! Little wonder why the queue was snakingly long on a Friday noon, past lunch peak (I was there at approx 2pm!) Fortunately boy made it in time before the 'hot' signature item was sold out. Instead of rice, boy opted for noodles which came in the likes of wanton noodles (not the yellow, alkanine-ish tasting round noodles). For the boy who've just hit the gym before this meal, I can see why there's instant feeling of 'reward'!

Atas pork for this piece of tonkatsu, with some sweet & sour sauce that wasn’t overly impressive. In terms of the execution, it was perfect!! So tender and juicy, yet very crispy on the outside.

Mingzhu roll: that’s the highlight of the day! Fried beancurd ‘case’ containing everything good - century egg, salted egg, mushrooms, ham and very, very succulent prawn. The only gripe I had was the lack of flavour from the salted eggy. Perhaps overwhelmed by the mushroomy taste, or overcooked. Worth a try anyway!

Prawn roll: Well, just some really good ngoh hiong that you can probably find elsewhere too.

Woah that golden silky blanket warms is comforting just to look at 😍 And of course nicer to experience it gliding down the throat. The silky smooth eggy was perfectly executed - so soft, so smooth, and a lot more flavoursome with the shoyu lace. The freshly shucked oyster, deep fried, completes the ooopmh factor. I wish I could show you the interior of this lil’ mountain - the rice were mixed generously with fish roe. It’s a burst of seafood freshness with each bite!! Quoting the fiancé, “I can taste the freshness of the 🌊 in my mouth!”

Sufficiently charred and aromatic. I'd called this a 'balanced' plate of kwayteow - with greens atop the protein (3x prawns), carbs and fats... The smallest serving goes at $4 (up from $3), a tad too small to fill the tummy but good in you've plans to go on a Golden Mile food excursion, conquering 2-3 meals in a single hawker hunt!

This’s one of my favourites from the pretty popular tzechar place, Big Eater Seafood in the neighbourhood! Love the mix of cabbage, beansprouts and diced charsiew in the mix! Might be a tad oily so drink some tea 🍵 to ease it off!

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
