This stall specializes in one of Singaporean's favorite tze char dish - the prawn paste chicken, or better known as har cheong gai which is essentially deep fried chicken marinated in fermented prawn paste.
.
The menu here is simple.
.
You can buy the chicken wings ala carte at $1.80 each (minimum two pieces), or as a meal with either two wings (Set A $5.20) or chicken cutlet (Set B $6.80). Both meals come with rice and a sunny side up with cucumbers and half a wedge of lemon.
.
There is also the basic meal (Set C $3.50) which is similar to Set A but only come with one wing and no fried egg.

The Japanese fusion bak chor mee is served with a sous vide egg and their signature braised pork roulade, on top of the usual minced meat, pig's liver, meat ball and fish ball found in a traditional bowl of bak chor mee.
.
In tune with their Japanese fusion theme, even the soup had a shoyu taste to it which is a refreshing change from the usual pork based broth.

The bak chor mee come with the usual minced meat, fish cake, stewed mushrooms, lettuce, and the not so usual fish ball with fish roe filling and pork ball with minced pork filling in the soup.

As its name suggest, the oyster omelette rice is white rice buried under a bed of fluffy omelette dressed in a special sweet sauce. Three plump oysters lay hidden within the omelette, like treasures awaiting to be discovered.
.
The oyster is plump and juicy with a clean briny taste without any unpleasant odor.
.
Although this is just a very simple oyster omelette rice, there is nothing more comforting than a mouthful of rice with bits of egg. The oyster is an added bonus.

Henry's Ipoh curry, which is based on his mum's recipe uses far less curry powder but with more emphasis on the aromatics like lemongrass, chili, dried shrimp, garlic and shallots.
.
I find the curry broth light but packed with flavors hence easy to drink. The layer of oil on the surface is not as thick as those found on our local curry.

Ke kou mian translates to "delicious noodle", or it could simply be referring to the Koka brand of instant noodle that the stall used in the making of this dish.
.
Basically, the stall cook instant noodle with your choice of broth flavor (pork, seafood, spicy, tom yum) and added ingredients like meat and vegetables to it.
.
My ke kou mian ($3/$4) contains minced pork balls, chopped vegetables and an egg.
.
Other than instant noodle, you can also opt for sang meen, yee meen and you mian.
.
In terms of ingredients, there may not be much but the generous portion of noodle makes for a very filling bowl.

The stall roasts their own char siew instead of getting ready made ones from the supplier.
.
Sliced in fairly thick chunks, the char siew is reasonably well-roasted with a nice color and charred bits on the exterior. The cut used is rather lean but fortunately not tough and dry.
.
The highlight is their handmade egg noodle which the stall owner make from scratch at the stall every afternoon. It is rare to find noodle stalls that still make their own noodle yet One Mouth Noodle persist in doing so and that deserves a salute from me.
.
I guess the result speaks for itself as the thinner than usual mee kia is delightfully springy with a lovely bite. Dressed in a concoction of light soy and fragrant oil, I thoroughly enjoyed this artisanal noodle.

I ordered a roasted chicken rice for one ($3.50).
.
My order came with a bowl of rice, a bowl of soup and a portion of chicken breast served on a separate plate.
.
The chicken meat is topped with shredded scallions and fried garlic bits while underneath it is a portion of bean sprouts dressed in a savory mix of soy sauce and sesame oil.
.
One of the main reason why I chose Qi Le over other chicken rice stalls is because I found out from the reviews that they give out a large bowl of soup with every order.
.
It seems the soup they serve here is similar to what your grandmother would make and not the usual sad bowl of tasteless hot water spammed with spring onions.

The portion my plate of carrot cake is pretty huge for $3! I thought the stall has made a mistake and had given me the $4 plate instead. I double checked with the auntie and she confirmed that it is indeed my order.
.
The generous portion can actually be shared among two persons which is totally value for money!

You can pick an assortment of fillings to have inside your rice roll ranging from the usual char siew to the more exotic flying fish roe and salmon.
.
Since it is my first time at this stall, I decided to go for the original ($2.50) without fillings so I could better appreciate the rice roll in its simplicity.
.
Instead of sesame seeds, sweet chye poh (preserved radish) goes on top of the rice roll. .
As delicate as it seem, the rice roll is thin yet resilient. The crunch of the chye poh provides an alternate texture to the smooth and springy rice roll.

Unlike the usual seafood hor fun that come with a light-colored gravy, this black bean sliced fish hor fun ($5) was topped with slices of fish and drenched in a dark-colored gravy instead.
.
However, I find the taste of pepper more pronounced than the black bean which make me feel like I am having black pepper sliced fish hor fun more than anything else.
