Went here on a weekday afternoon and so many stalls either had long queues or weren’t open. Ended up here because I didn’t want to queue ($2.70 for my rice + two items). The ba pa/Pork chop was okay, although the slices weren’t evenly cut (some were a bit too thin). The vegetables were meh and room temperature, so I didn’t finish it.

We paid $52.90 for one whole chicken, a small spinach with three eggs, three plates of rice, the tofu + eggs and we were very full by the end. The chicken was tender (although we would have preferred more sauce) and the spinach dish was excellent. I’m normally not a fan of vegetables but I found myself going back for more. The tofu + eggs thing was normal.

When there’s only one dish in a stall, you can be sure that it’s either very good or very bad. Luckily for us, the mentaiko salmon rice ($10) was very good! The mentaiko sauce was generous and went well with the soft salmon, the sous vide egg was made flavourful by the furikake, and while blue rice looks weird, it tasted good (not much flavour given that butterfly pea has a very slight sweet taste but that is probably for the best). All the ingredients came together for a very delicious lunch - well worth the special trip we made to have it.

According to my friend, the fact that I got a bowl of this for dinner without queueing is a very amazing coincidence so yay for that!

Anyway, I had the small ($8) bowl and it was pretty good! The noodles were springy, the noodle prawn was like fried wonton, the wonton has very generous and tasting filling, the char siew was tender, and the onsen egg was amazing!

The soup was pretty nice too - peppery and tasty.

The only thing is, I don’t really see the resemblance to ramen (apart from the Onsen egg). The noodles taste like wonton/fishball noodles, not like ramen (or even fried ramen). I would say that it’s a fairly original and definitely delicious noodle dish, but I wouldn’t think of ramen if I hadn’t read about it beforehand.

Saw this stall (真好喝/Tastes Good - couldn’t see stall number) at People’s Park and really enjoyed their grass jelly + bubbles milk tea ($3 for medium). Got the 50% sugar and it was just right - a good balance of tea, sweetening, and toppings. Would definitely come back and try other stuff from here

Both my colleagues strongly recommend the Xiao Long Bao ($4 for 6) from this stall (#01-1130) but I found it to be very dry. None of the dumplings had soup and at least two had holes in it (which obviously explains the lack of soup). The filling was flavourful, but that couldn’t make up for the rest.

Read about this stall in Burpple and decided to try it because I’m all about unhealthy food. The uncle prepares each dish individually, which means a slightly longer waiting time but it means that your food is freshly prepared.

I was pleasantly surprised at how many while oysters there were, considering I got the cheapest option. The portion is on the small side, but was just right for me (if I were sharing, however, I’d probably want to get the $6 portion).
