Hands down my favorite beef noodles stall at all time. I haven’t been here for a long while, it still taste good! They used to provide chinchalok, not sure why I don’t see it anymore. It’s a pity, cos I feel the chinchalok further enhances the taste.

All the flavors of the Ah Balling are good except for yam, I find that you can’t really taste the yam.

Soup Flavors: Peanut/Ginger/Longan/Almond
Prices: 4pcs at $2, 5pcs at $2.30, 6pcs at $2.60

Not as good I have expected but it’s not bad. The broth is sweet, probably from the natural sweetness from the lala. I like the fried garlic bits which enhances the taste.

This is disappointing. Hor fun has no wok hei at all. The beef is also quite tough.

I seldom take vegetarian food, attracted by the queue, I decided to give this a shot. The ingredients were fresh. Tried the Thunder tea on its own but the taste was a little too funky for me so I decided to pour into the rice and mix together. It tastes much better when you mix everything together. It’s good, healthy and very filling.

I always preferred white carrot cakes over black ones because white ones tend to have more eggs. Unlike the typical flat pancake style, the carrot cake here is thick and chunky. Fried with a generous amount of chai poh and eggs, the sweetness from the chai poh complements the savory taste from the fish sauce. The exterior is also nicely fried to give a well-charred crisp. I also noticed that it was not too oily as there wasn't any significant amount of oil residue remaining on the plate, unlike some other places.
Note that there are two stalls here, one for takeaway, another for eating in.

The soup is really sweet and tasty. The handmade noodles are springy. Other than the distinct porky taste in the meatballs that I don’t really like, it’s a pretty good comforting bowl of noodles.

A good plate of hor fun with good amount of work hei and generous serving of tender sliced beef. Gravy is slightly salty though.

First time trying Sarawak kolo mee. I like the noodles, they are very Q and cooked to the right al dente texture. The noodles are tossed with shallot oil and fried shallots, which makes it very fragrant. However, it’s a little bit dry perhaps a little more gravy will help. The portion of wantons and char siew are quite generous for $4. Char Siew is tender, but I find the wanton fillings a little bit dry as well. As for the soup, it's quite bland.

Authentic and affordable Thai food at Hom Aroy Thai food stall. The fried vermicelli is very tasty and full of wok hei. The prawns are fresh and crunchy. Aroy Mak Mak! 👍🏼😋

Perfect choice to cool the body down in this hot weather. Not bad but I would prefer a softer ice texture.

My mum was the one who intro me this stall. This was her fav. I was skeptical of how special can the simple dish of Chee Cheong Fun and yam cake be, don't they taste the same everywhere? I was wrong, the Chee Cheong Fun here is silky smooth, the sweet sauce was not too sweet and the fragrant sesame oil and sesame made it taste even better. I usually order the Chee Cheong fun and yam cake combo but it was sold out that day. The yam cake here is really good too!

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