This is the kind of meat that can make a vegan salivate and ignite the carnivore in you. This is not your usual roast meat. This one is definitely different and left an impression on me.

The Char Siew is tender and not overly sweet while the Roast Duck is decent and not tough and dry. I can talk about the Sio Bak all day. It’s that good. The fatty Sio Bak with crispy skin literally melts in your mouth. Some might find it too fatty but I love my meat fatty.

Paired with the rich and savoury sauce and chili, it really brings out the flavour of the meat. Delicious.

I grew up eating this Ngoh Hiang Bee Hoon and I think people living in Choa Chu Kang have most likely heard of this underrated Ngoh Hiang stall located in this popular 24-hour coffee shop so I feel it’s worth a mention.

In the morning, the stall sells Economic Bee Hoon. In the afternoon, they are converted to Ngoh Hiang Bee Hoon. They have a wide variety of Liao to choose from. The Ngoh Hiang, Tau Kwa and Prawn Crackers are a must order. The Ngoh Hiang is tasty while the Tau Kwa is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The Prawn Cracker is light and crispy too. Paired with the humble Fried Bee Hoon and the sweet and sour chili dip, it is the ultimate sinful choice for supper.

For $12.50, it is more than enough to satisfy your supper needs and your craving for deep fried food. Best shared among loved ones.

This comforting bowl of Bak Chor Mee is solid. It is very well-balanced and the umami will rock your tastebuds.

I went with Mee Pok as usual. The noodles are springy, chewy and on point when mixed with the chili sauce and the tangy vinegar. This simple yet complex bowl is definitely heavy in flavour.

There are minced meat, meat balls, braised mushrooms and I particularly liked the liver. The liver which has a nice texture is well-cooked but the gamey taste is not for everyone. The bowl of soup at the side also helps to cleanse the palate. Overall, the taste is awesome and it is one of my all-time favourite Bak Chor Mee stall.

The first time I had Fu Lin Fried Yong Tau Foo was at @foodrepublicsg @sunteccity so when I chance upon their outlet at @immoutletmall , I remembered their deep fried Yong Tau Foo drowned in their distinct minced meat and mushroom gravy paired with their thick Bee Hoon that was drenched in the same gravy.

A tad disappointed with the gravy this time as I remembered it to be more peppery and flavourful but still a decent Yong Tau Foo for $13.50 Nothing to shout about for their chili and sweet sauce but this portion can definitely feed two hungry people.

You know it’s probably good stuff when you spot a queue at Hi Leskmi Nasi Lemak.

I always believe that the major elements that make a good Nasi Lemak are the Sambal Chili and Rice. The sambal is on the sweet side and the taste is on point while the rice is lacking the coconut aroma. For the Chicken Drumstick, it is crispy and well marinated but on the dry side. The Otah here is tender and flatter compared to other Otahs out there.

Overall, I have to say this plate is above average but not spectacular(like the one in Adam Road).

I have heard a lot about this Hokkien Mee so when I was in Toa Payoh, I was like, damn I must at least give this a try. When the simmering Hokkien Mee that was served in a claypot came to my table, it certainly caught my undivided attention.

This has got to be one of the most instagrammable Hokkien Mee out there. But does the taste live up to its appearance? Kim Keat Hokkien Mee is definitely on the wet side. Soupy and generous in portion, it comes with prawns, squids, clams, pork lard and sio bak. However, it was lacking the most important element. Wok Hei was almost non-existent but luckily, the chili make up for it to give it a extra boost in flavour. Not my favourite but better than average.

I have been craving for a decent plate of Hokkien Mee for ages and when I discovered there is a new Hokkien Mee stall near my place, I decided to settle my dinner at the familiar coffee shop and get a queue number.

You can buy the Hokkien Mee for $5 or $7. Of course, I got the $7 plate of Hokkien Mee to satisfy my cravings.

The chili really packs a punch while the noodles tend to gravitate towards the sweet side. I wished the portion was bigger for $7. Overall, the taste is still okay but not spectacular.

The Fish Noodle Soup from Song Fish Soup is flavourful and has a clean taste to it. The soup is good but there is nothing to shout about for the fish. The tangy chili sauce that contains fermented bean paste adds a kick to it. For $5 a bowl, the portions are quite generous. Light and simple.

At first glance, it’s quite an aesthetically pleasing bowl of Century Egg Lean Pork Congee($5.20) in a coffee shop setting. This new stall near my place sells Fish Soup and Congee and I think it's worth a try even though I waited quite a while.

For me, the attention to details contributes a lot to the success of a dish. The seasoning for the congee was balanced and not too salty and I like the consistency. By adding fried shallots, thin strips of egg slices and peanuts elevates this bowl of warm gooey goodness. The You Tiao is legit.

Will come back again for another bowl of congee.

Affordable western fare in the neighbourhood.

The Char-Grilled Chicken ($6.50) was well-seasoned while I wished the Crispy Chicken ($6.50) could be more crispy. The meal came with two sides. I chose the French Fries and it was crispy while the Mexican Cheese Pasta was flavourful.
