The kaya used to be more “ homemade “ , more eggy and rustic .

It seems more pastey now with an unatural green colour .

The bread tastes a little different too - pretty dry and perhaps not toasted on a grill anymore - am missing those grill marks .

Hope standards improve soon 😭

Having my favourite “ mocha” from papa rich .

Less pronounced coffee flavour this time as compared to the first few times.

But still a nice place to rest your legs and catch up with old times.

The nonya chap chye here is one of the better ones I have eaten save for the rather stiff vermicelli used here ( they could use a better quality one ).

Other than that , this really tastes like something out from my mum’s kitchen. So soulful - so good .

Well stewed vegetables with generous black fungus and mushrooms in a soy bean sauce with a umami from the dried shrimps.

I like that dried bean puffs and Tau kee is used - which most places so readily omit for convenience sake.

Drench that addictive and savoury broth over rice for a simple hearty meal .

In a relatively less crowded part of Clementi away from the crazy crowd at clementi Central lies a family - owned tze char which does up an excellent egg gravy horfun .

The owners do not skimp on ingredients and the dish boasts a generous serving of vegetables and seafood / fish slices .

The skilful execution of the dish brings with it a good wok hei and a very silkily egg gravy sauce.

Outstanding .

A yummy goodness of fresh pineapples and well seasoned rice topped with lots of pork floss .

It was a worthwhile trip to the royal thai embassy food fair .

Thai food fair at thai 👑 royal thai embassy .

Intrigued by a food fair type of set up at the thai embassy - my legs led me to a grand surprise .

Lots of thai food - some with established shops in singapore like folks collective and unyang kordai .

It was my first encounter with unyang kordai which has a shop at 57 south bridge road . The grilled chicken was well marinated with thai spices and was succulent .

10 dollars for half a chicken and 15 dollars for a full chicken .

I say go for the full portion 😊

Triple 1 Somerset
So good HK Cha Chan Teng

This was the star of the day - well cooked glutinous rice grains that are not too mushy and a nice ratio of green bean filling .
Filled with fatty pork and a whole salted egg -
This was so satisfying .

Ask for the accompanying sauce to be served on the side instead of having it drenched all over .

Good for sharing .

The newly revamped triple one Somerset retail mall houses quite a few new f and b concepts.

Imperial treasures Cha Chan Teng used to be one of my to go place for a quick no frills noodle/ porridge / luncheon meat and egg sandwich fare .

Now replaced with a new name called “ so good” - I am Glad to say prices are still the same and the quality of food about the same too .

The char siew noodles are 6 dollars nett and I would say pretty cheap for a quick meal in town .

The char siew however was a little overseasoned and boasted of a texture too soft ( likely due to the overuse of baking Soda). The noodles had a nice texture but was a little too salty from the overuse of oyster sauce .

There is an adjoining bakery selling one of my favourite best egg tarts - both the flakey crust and the shortcrust kind of egg tarts.

So Glad I don’t have to travel all the way to asia square to get them now .

Food is decent and prices are good .

A place to just order ( via a machine ), eat , clear your own trays and go .

These noodles are so good - you can eat it on its own.

I would say these hk noodles easily beat the quality and quantity of noodles served typically at Chinese chain of restaurants .

Springy and without the alkaline taste - these noodles were even better when paired with their home made chilli .


We were lucky on a Wednesday evening to have found seats at kok Sen .

No Long queues and no long waiting time for food.

It’s been 2 years since I have last visited kok Sen .
This used to be my default place for a comfort meal but no longer after they because so popular - all thanks to social media.

Prices are definitely steeper now but quality is assured . We were happy to get our steamed egg this time because they last time we came on a weekend - this was not available as the cooking time required is Long and the kitchen couldn’t cope .

It’s just steamed egg but somehow so tasty with just a bowl of steaming white rice .

So silky and smooth .

I have been disappointed umpteen times by the porridge served by imperial xxxxxx ( for the Super high price and Low value ) and more so crystal xxx ( for the grainy porridge).

This bowl of porridge was so good - it could rival the famous sheng kee famous porridge in Hk - and I kid you not.

Extremely creamy , well seasoned with a rich broth without being too salty ( or feeling like it was laden with msg)- this porridge was soooo good and the portion was generous .

The consistency of the porridge was just nice - a little on the thicker side which I enjoy.

The fish slices were also thick and fresh .

Sorry to say but I like these so much more than tim Ho Wan’s sugar crusted version .

These char siew Baked paos are incredibly and unimaginably soft - it’s like bitting into clouds when you bite into them.

Served warm - the part salty and part sweet caramelised char siew fillings and the glazed soft buns are a perfect match made in heaven .

This is my new favourite place for dim sum .

Forget the likes of swee choon - just dive straight here .
