The Roasted Duck Noodle ($3.50) from 亚忠烧腊 at Maxwell Food Centre (#01-93) is surprisingly good. The duck meat is springy, the skin is fragrant and the noodle is tossed in a robust dark soya sauce. Reliving this is making me hungry again🤤

I love both the dry and soup Teochew-style beef noodles from Empress Place Teochew Beef Kway Teow, but do you know that they serve Fried Beef Kway Teow ($5) too? The thin kway teow is springy, the beef slices are tender, but what really sealed the deal for me is the intense wok hei and fragrance that permeate the noodles. Wished there could be more beef, but nonetheless, still a pretty good plate of fried beef kway teow👍🏻

Popped by a relatively new stall, 亚忠烧腊 (#01-93), at Maxwell Food Centre for dinner, and the Char Siew and Roasted Pork Rice ($5) is surprisingly good and generous. Though the char siew is too lean for my liking, the roasted pork is crispy, juicy and flavourful. The sauce is on the sweeter side but it is balanced out by the tangy chilli that packs a punch. Exceeded my expectations:)

The soups from 香浓老火汤 at Maxwell Food Centre (#01-86) are consistently good. The Apple and Pear Pork Rib Soup ($4.50 + $1 for yam rice) is very sweet and comforting. The apple and pear melt in your mouth instantly and the pork ribs are so soft that the soft bones have a jelly-like consistency. Love the pairing with the yam rice too. Soup fix of the week checked!

Old school hawker western food anyone😎? The Pork Chop ($7.50) from Tasty Barbecue at Maxwell Food Centre (#01-94) is very tender and the sauce is a delicious balance of sweet and savoury. It comes with a super soft bun, baked beans and fries. The size of the pork chop is very generous. Nothing too fancy, but highly satisfying.

Finally jumped onto the bandwagon of the latest Har Cheong Gai craze at Ah Tan Wings new branch in Maxwell Food Centre (#01-03). I got the Wing Wing set ($5.20), which comprises of 2 shrimp paste wings, aromatic rice and fried egg. The signature wings are on point - they are the most intense Har Cheong Gai I have ever tasted. The shrimp paste aroma is super strong and the wings are very crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The tangy chili sauce cuts through the strong flavours and keeps the jelakness at bay. Along with the egg and aromatic rice, the meal is satisfying and sinful at the same time - definitely not to be missed if you are fan of Har Cheong Gai.

This is my first time trying Teochew-style beef noodles. The Dry Mixed Beef Kway Teow with Tendon ($6) from Empress Place Teochew Beef Kway Teow (#01-43) is tossed in chilli and sesame oil instead of the usual thick gravy - I find it fragrant and delicious! The beef slices, tripe and beef balls are tender, fresh and they go well with the chilli, though I felt that the chilli could do with a little more acidity. The tendons are very soft, almost like a jelly that melts in your mouth. The beef broth that is served at the side is sweet and rich. Good stuff👍🏻!

The Lotus Root Peanut Pork Rib Soup ($4.50) from 香浓老火汤 at Maxwell Food Centre (#01-86) is perfect for the chilly weather lately. The soup is robustly flavoured, the peanuts and lotus roots add a nice crunch but what impressed me the most is the pork ribs - they are so thoroughly simmered that the meat falls apart without effort and the soft bone/ cartilage is of jelly consistency. Simple and comforting!

The Herbal Chicken Soup ($6.50) from 香浓老火汤 at Maxwell Food Centre (#01-86) is very rich and sweet. The soup is packed with red date, ginkgo, longan and goji berry, and every scoop contains a lot of ingredients. The chicken is so tender that the meat literally falls off the bone. The mushroom absorbs the essence of the soup fully and is an amazing burst of flavours🤤 Paired with yam rice, the meal is hearty and satisfying - I could see myself returning again for a soup fix!

The addiction to yong tau foo with chee cheong fun is real🙈 My Monday staple from Zhen Zhen Delights at Maxwell Food Centre comprises of 7 ingredients with CCF ($5.10) drenched in chilli and vinegar, hmm so good🤤!

My favourite grab-and-go breakfast from Maxwell Food Centre: 70cents red bean pancake! This stall (No. 26) is literally called Pancake and the chewy pandan pancake goes really well with the generous red bean filling. It comes with coconut and peanut filling too. On lucky days, you get a freshly sliced pancake that is still warm from the pan, yums😋!

Something tangy and sweet to perk you up🍅

The Tomato Egg Noodles ($4) from 常爱吃板面鱼汤 at Maxwell Food Centre is essentially a noodle version of tomato omelette (番茄炒蛋)! It comes with minced meat, tomato and egg - throw in 2 extra dumplings ($0.60 each) and it’s one of the most comforting food you can have on a rainy day☺️
