I didn't plan to eat this but because the stall I wanted to go to is not open so I decided to try out this stall. If you like spinach soup, you should try this. They gave one whole bunch of spinach...chew until I tired. Haha!😅 The prawns are very fresh, the soup taste like home-cooked soup. 有妈妈的味道 ☺️

Huge piece of unagi for the lunch set. This stall sell various wallet friendly Japanese bentos.

Comes with generous servings of char siew and two types of wantons. Instead of the common char siew with red coloring, I prefer this type of caramelized brownish char siew. I suggest getting the large portion cos the ingredients are so yummy you won’t get enough of it.

Unlike the usual lor mee’s stock, this one is not too thick or starchy like glue. This is the first time I can still drink the soup from a bowl of lor mee. I like the slight hint of herbal taste and sweetness from the soup.

By the time I’ve reached home, the noodles have already soaked up the richness of the stock. It’s not the best Hokkien mee I’ve tried but it’s not bad. It does contain a very subtle hint of wok hei with generous egg bits. The prawns are a bit overcooked though. And unlike the usual Hokkien mee, this one doesn’t have any pork meat. Overall, it’s still a decent plate of noodles.

This bowl consists of lean meat, pork belly, pork shabu, pork skin, meatballs, egg sausage, radish, spinach. The soup was surprisingly light. I like the handmade meatballs, it’s bouncy and tasty. Egg sausage tasted just like egg tofu with skin. If I were to come back again, I will just order the meatballs and egg sausages.

I like that it's not too sweet, and the mild spiciness from the ginger warms up the stomach on this rainy day.

Prawn fried rice at only $2, what a steal! Added a fried egg with chicken at $1. It comes with a bowl of free soup which is quite tasty. The boss kept the price low intentionally during this sensitive period. Acts of kindness like this, restore my faith in humanity.

I didn’t know there was another hill street fried kway teow in Chinatown. Unlike the one at Bedok, this one was a bit low profile. I was attracted by the fragrant of the fried kway teow from a few hundred meters away. It’s not the best one I had but it had a gd amount of wok hei and old school taste. A pretty decent plate that’s worth the calories.

Love their fresh handmade ingredients especially the prawn. I used to eat this frequently when I work nearby. You can upsize your beehoon with no additional charge. They increase price and I also noticed they gave less ingredients now. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Served with a generous serving of crispy pork chop, the pork chop is well-marinated and tender. The curry gravy reminds me of laksa gravy. It kind of tastes like a mixture of laksa and curry gravy, creamy and tasty in a good way and not too spicy. The hor fun is smooth and goes really well with the curry gravy. Pretty good, I’ll definitely try this again when I’m around this area.

Who says money can’t buy happiness? Money can buy good food and that’s basically the same thing.
