S$6/8/10 options available.
Tai Hwa executed the Bak Chor Mee well with their generous toppings and vinegary interpretation, but I can't say that I am willing to travel and wait in queue just to eat it. Interesting, but not enough to persuade me away from my neighbourhood stall. BCM purists might dislike the lack of braised Mushrooms.

S$3.50 for a rice bowl with Thunder Tea. A beginner friendly version of the Thunder Tea rice, it might be milder than other stalls. Good to try if you are in the area.

Day's special. From a HDB Kopitiam at block 526. Previously located at 517 Jurong West.

Prepared fresh, as I was given a peek of the crate of live lobsters. Meat is succulent and enriched by the sweet, tang tomato sauce.

Bowen's give fantastic food, and it seems like their food is always adjusting to consumer tastes. The problem is the location of the place is pretty hard to get to, being 13 mins walk away from Lakeside MRT. If you do visit I do suggest ordering the specials, as they seem to do different things from duck confit to grilled lobsters to wild boar pasta. A hidden gem indeed.

Though a whole lobster looks impressive on the plate, it means that the small morsels of meat from inside the legs and claw knuckles are hard to extract.

A variant of Laksa Lemak where the rice noodles are cut up to small pieces so the entire bowl can be eaten using a spoon.
All I can think of while eating is that using a spoon to eat noodles feels weird and also genius at the same time.

Also eating a large bowl is generally a terrible idea. Small bowl + Otah = 👌

Without noticing I had ordered everything fried on my plate. #noregret

Chicken was salty, which is fine on its own but paired with the sauce became overly so.

Preserved olive leaves were used instead of the olives we're more familiar with. Slightly funky taste in a good way. Don't mess with the preserved olive leaves used to make this fried rice though. I once ate a small spoon straight from the jar and that made me throw the jar away.

Stall looked nice. As does the food. Unfortunately it was a mere repackaging of standard kopitiam to look nicer without added value. Good news is the price isn't much higher.

Is it worse to eat #averagefood #normalfood that I have no feelings about or bad food that I have a lot of things to say 🤔

S$5.

Roast Pork Cheese sandwich from Blk 79 Circuit Road Hawker Center, Vietnamese stall Pho 125.

An average sandwich. It had good contrasting flavours and textures, but the cheese didn't do much and more leaves to be desired for the fillings. However, there aren't much choices in this area for Banh Mi.

Beef Pho from Vietnamese stall located at Circuit Road Hawker Center called Pho 125.

Flavour profile is interesting because it is sweet and herby, and the sauces provided are primarily sweet as well.
