The Char Kway Teow ($3) from Amoy Street Food Centre (#01-01) is sweet, savoury and packed of wok hei - it’s pretty legit! The dash of lime juice cuts through the strong flavours and gives it a refreshing twist. Guilty pleasure checked ✅


Can we take a moment to appreciate how generous this plate of Chicken Feet Noodles ($4 + $1 for extra wonton) from Wen Xiu Ji Noodles (Amoy Street Food Centre #01-31) is? The chicken feet are huge and they are so soft that the skin falls apart from the bones effortlessly. The wontons are flavourful, the skin is thin and you get 5 extra wantons for just $1👏🏻 The springy noodles is tossed in a delicious braise sauce and is extra shiok with chilli sauce and green chilli. Satisfied:)!

I’m a big fan of kolo mee, and one of my favourite stalls in Amoy Street Food Centre is Jin’s Noodle, which serves up a hearty bowl of Sarawak Kolo Mee ($4). The springy kolo mee is tossed in a fragrant concoction of lard and chilli. Each bowl comes with char siew, fried wanton, boiled wonton and a dash of fried shallots. The portion is generous and the young bosses are very amiable:) This never fail to perk me up whenever I’m in need for comfort food!

To be honest, I seldom crave for fish soup as I generally lean towards more 重口味 food. I decided to try the the Assorted Soup with Ee Mee ($4.50) from Mr Batang Fish @ 96 (Amoy Street Food Centre #02-96) and it turned out to be surprisingly good! Maybe it should not have been such a surprise given the snaking lunchtime queue in front of the stall😅 I like that there is a good variety of ingredients compared to the usual fish soup, such as Batang slice fish, minced meat, prawns and vegetables. The fish is fresh, the prawns are crunchy and the clear looking soup is actually very flavourful. The tangy chilli ties up everything together with an extra oomph. Shall try the Tom Yum soup next time!

Rise and shine☀️! It’s been a while since I visited my favourite muffin shop at Amoy Street Food Centre, Bake_Of. I got myself a Salted Caramel muffin ($1.40) and the first thing that struck me was a whiff of caramel fragrance. The salt balanced out the sweetness of the caramel and the whole muffin was so soft, moist and delightful☺️ Such a steal at $1.40 for a muffin this good. On a quest to try all their flavours someday!

It’s been a while since I had the Bak Chor Mee ($5 for medium) from Ah Ter Teochew Fishball Noodles at Amoy Street Food Centre (#01-14), and it seems less ketchupy than I remembered it to be - not that I mind as too much ketchup can be jelat at times🤪! This is one of the rare BCM where the pork liver is not overcooked - it’s smooth, crunchy and there is no weird taste👍🏻

👀 Spotted a new pasta stall at Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-128), Fuseat, where you can DIY your meal by choosing your choice of pasta/risotto, ingredients and sauce. The sauces are largely Thai-inspired, ranging from Creamy Tomato with Vodka to Thai Green Curry to Tom Yum with Coconut Milk. I tried the Kra Pow Aglio Prawn and Squid Spaghetti ($8.50) today and the fragrance of the basil really comes through and complements the pasta and seafood well. The portion is quite decent as well, especially since there is a promotion now where you can add chicken or mushroom (usual price $2) for free! Looking forward to trying the other interesting flavours on the menu:)!

A comforting bowl of kway chap ($3.50) from 郭亞吟潮州粿汁 Teochew Kway Chap at Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-117) - the ingredients are well-braised and soft, and the vinegary and garlicky chilli goes very well with the kway chap👍🏻

Finally fixed my Chee Cheong Fun craving at Ho Kee Hakka Yong Tau Foo ($5.20 for 7 ingredients + chee cheong fun) in Amoy Street Food Centre today🤤 The ingredients are fresh and my favourites are the fried eggplant and bitter gourd. The dash of dark sauce and chilli goes really well with the chee cheong fun - comfort food checked!

The Yang Zhou Fried Rice ($3.50) from Good Day at Amoy Street Food Centre (#01-25) can’t go wrong on days when you are feeling famished🤤 The fried rice is 粒粒分明, packed with wok hei and extra delicious with lots of green chilli and an additional sunny side up:) The portion is really generous for its price and you can easily tipped over from super hungry to super full. Great value-for-money!

I did not have very high expectations of Koryori Hayashi (#01-11), the humble looking Japanese stall on the 1st storey of Amoy Street Food Centre. So
imagine my surprise when the Mentaiko Pasta ($7.50) turned out to be packed with umami and really delicious❤️ A generous dollop of Mentaiko is added to the pasta and I like that the sauce is creamy and flavourful, but not jelat:) So good!

I’m back at Madam Leong Ban Mian at Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-109) for lunch AGAIN and I finally checked the last item off my food list - Tom Yum Chicken Ban Mian ($5). As most of the Tom Yum ban mian I had from other stalls are seafood based, I’m pleasantly surprised that the tender chicken thighs go quite well with the robust Tom Yum soup:) Coupled with straw mushrooms and tomatoes, this flavourful bowl of noodles has all the things that I like in a good bowl of Tom Yum ban mian!
