Braise is located on the 2nd floor of Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-131). At first I thought they are selling Taiwanese 滷肉飯 - turned out that it is a homely version of braised pork belly/trotter/chicken rice instead:)

I got the Braised Pork Belly Rice with Fried Pork Belly ($6.90), as well as a side of Braised Tofu ($1). First thing first, the pork belly is pretty good as it is braised thoroughly and super soft. The deep-fried pork belly has a nice texture because it is covered in crispy bread crumbs, but it is a little under-seasoned and not as flavourful as the braised pork belly. Surprisingly, the one thing that stole the show for me is actually the braised tofu, which is really pillowy and well braised. There are many small pockets in the tofu to absorb the gravy - love it!

Overall, the braised pork belly rice reminds me of a comforting home cooked meal and I enjoyed it!

Kin Men Seng Heng Hokkien Braised Duck is a new Hokkien braised duck stall at Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-133) opened by a group of young hawkers. I ordered the $6 set which came with braised duck noodle (rice is available too), braised taupok, beancurd and egg. I opted for the dry version with kway teow noodles and it is surprisingly good! The duck is tender, the sauce is herby and flavourful, and together with the fragrant chilli and sides, it makes a comforting bowl of noodles:) Wouldn’t mind having this again!

The Signature Minced Meat Noodles ($5) is a hearty bowl of bak chor mee that comes with the essential braised mushroom, minced pork and fishballs, as well as beancurd skin, mock abalone and a runny egg. The mee pok is springy, the sauce and chilli are delicious and the egg binds everything together and gives it a somewhat creamy finish.

The Daily Noodles ($6) is a really affordable bowl of maze soba. The al dente ramen is served with torched chashu, braised minced meat, seaweed and a runny egg, and the end result is very flavourful and satisfying.

My default bak chor mee combi is always dry mee kia with chilli, so I was really interested to try the soup version when Old Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodle by Liang Haus Noodle Bar opened at Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-82). This stall sells soup bak chor mee with a choice of mee pok, mee kia and kway teow only. The first thing that struck me was how flavourful and garlicky the broth was - it really packed a punch, although towards the end I found it a little salty. The soup came with a generous amount of minced meat, garlic bits and plump wantons. I like that the noodle was not overcooked. A pretty filling and satisfying lunch for $5!

A pretty decent plate of nasi lemak ($3.10) from Li Xing Nasi Lemak at Amoy Street Food Centre (#02-81) comprising fried chicken wing, luncheon meat, fish cake and peanuts with ikan bilis. Simple and wallet-friendly:)

Decided to give the new wanton noodle stall at Amoy Street Food Centre a go and I didn’t expect Er Gu Wanton Noodle (#01-15) to be this good! Besides thin egg noodle, the stall also offers the option of meepok (thick egg noodle) and thin hor fun. I ordered wanton noodle with meepok ($5 for big) and it came with a generous portion of noodles and boiled and fried wanton. The meepok is springy and the larger surface area is thoroughly coated in the delicious and feisty sauce. However, what truly sets it apart from the rest is the wanton - the skin is thin, the flavourful pork filling is infused with the fragrance of sesame oil and did I mention how plump each one is! I think I might have found my favourite wanton noodle stall at Amoy Street Food Centre👏🏻

The Ban Mian Fish Soup stall (#02-134) at Amoy Street Food Centre allows you to customise your fish soup from a selection of sliced fish, fried fish, salmon and even red grouper. I’m generally not a fan of fish soup, but the Double Fish Soup ($6, if upgrade to salmon) is not bad! The fried fish batter is crispy and not oily, the salmon is fresh and the soup is flavourful. The tangy chilli adds a kick to the comforting soup. Enjoyed this!

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!
