To be a famous soup kway teow, your soup and ingredients better be good. Unfortunately everything here was ordinary. I only liked the fishballs, which were hard but tasty.

Not sure was it the Nonya or just them, this laksa was thicker in both texture and flavour. Certainly not the common laksa we encounter. I can imagine myself eating this non-stop. Came with a whole prawn.

Standards have dropped so much I'm not sure they're the same lechon. Basically just thick cuts of pork belly with some of the pungency I like. They also gave me some Filipino mango salad to try, which was so-so nia.

What a beauty. One look and you know you're about to eat good stuff. The mee was fried further than crispy - it's fragrant. The fish was fresh and the sauce powerful. Just watch out for the auntie's attitude. I cannot understand why ordering the smallest plate means a styrofoam plate and not a proper plate.

As I always say, the success of a wanton mee is in how many boxes it ticks. Here, the char siew was thick, fatty and moist, while the noodles were both of good quality and cooked well. On the flip side, the latter was in a seasoning as dumb as the tasteless soup. Wantons were okay.

As the connoisseurs would tell you, different from Singaporean carrot cake. Kinda like char kway kak. The kway are bigger - not a good thing. There are also bean sprouts. They whip up a good version here that's distinct from Singapore's and that I can accept.

When it arrived, I could tell this isn't an ordinary stall. Look at how dark the broth was and how assorted the ingredients were. Most of the latter were average, but the pork was orgasmic. It had that pungency I love in pork. Bonus that the kway came with lard! Finally, I don't like the inconvenience of kway in large sheets, but here they chop it up.

This stall was fancy enough to attract someone who doesn't usually eat hawker western like me. The slab was generous and decent enough to warrant a return visit. Cheese did nothing much though - it already hardened when I started eating. Onion rings you can count and slaw was mediocre.

At this roast stall, ordering hor fun means a full zichar-style hor fun. Both the hor fun and pork were decent. A good reason for eating here is really such a combination.

Braised pork belly, minced meat brinjal, black pepper chicken. The pork was disgusting. Cold, mushy and nauseating. Their attitude needs some improvement too.

Rice from zichar stall topped with vegetarian dishes. Sadly this favourite zichar stall of mine has shut down again!

Voracious foodie who often doesn't snap photos of his food, making him a bad Burppler.
