This is another stall that has been included in Michelin Bib Gourmand List. The steamed chicken ($5.30 for drum stick and chicken wing rice) is really smooth and tender, and the skin has a jelly-like consistency. It goes well with the salted vegetables served on the side and the fiery chilli. However, the rice is too dry for my liking - wished it is more moist and fluffy. Interestingly, this stall also sells fried Ngor Hiang ($3) and I love how crispy and fragrant it is.

I have never seen a fish ball noodle with sooooo many ingredients! The $4 portion comes with a generous amount of fish balls, fish cakes, fish dumplings, pork slices and yong tau foo-ish fish paste tofu. The fish paste is very fresh and it has a nice bounce without being too hard. However, the alkaline taste of the noodles is too strong for me and I wished the sauce is more vinegary. Having said that, still pretty pleased with the unexpected fish ball noodle - yong tau foo pairing.

I wasn’t expecting much, but the gravy of the Lor Mee ($4/5) is surprisingly robust and delicious, especially with the garlic and vinegar. It comes with the usual pork slices, ngoh hiang, fried wanton, fried fish, fish cake and egg. There is nothing fancy or extraordinary about this, just good old lor mee for days when you crave comfort food.

We ordered the Fried Intestine Porridge ($5/7) and the porridge is really smooth and flavourful. The paper-thin fried intestines are crispy and fragrant, and they add a nice crunch to the velvety porridge.

This stall has been awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand and I think it serves up a pretty decent plate of Hokkien Mee ($4/5/6). The noodles are on the drier side, but still fragrant and infused with wok hei. There is a good amount of prawns, squid and pork slices. The chilli is not super spicy but it goes well with the noodles and a dash of lime juice. Although this is not my favourite hokkien mee as I generally prefer mine to be more saucy, this is still quite tasty.

I will never leave Tiong Bahru Market without my favourite chwee kueh (5 for $2.50) from Jian Bo Shui Kueh😍 The kueh is very soft and the sweet and savoury fried cai por is fragrant and highly addictive! Easily my favourite stall in the entire market:)
