There's also Collins at kopitiams, and it served a hearty portion for us with some unique sides (sweet potatoes fries, mushroom medley) and special sauces (pesto cream eg). Chicken cutlet ($9.90) was juicy & tender but the pork cutlet ($12.90) was sadly dry. The roasted pumpkins was a miss for us too, as it didn't capture the sweetness

First time trying and all in all, it's definitely a good contender of Astons

Friday hunt for dinner leads us here to this western food chain at Sims (near aljunied), for a diverse menu with affordable options - we got the ribeye steak with 3 diff sides ($15.90).

Overall, it's al-right but felt it could do more as the sauce is slightly salty and overwhelms it. My fave is the garlicky Aglio Olio. Ps. Realise peri peri is a kopitiam western food chain

And you know why this charkueyteow place has long queues at Chinatown Complex (imo one of the best kopitiams around). You can smell the char and wokhey around the stall, and they whipped this dish that: soft QQ kuayteow and beansprouts, extremely juicy clams. Not too oily and it's on the wet side.

$3 for regular, wished we went for the bigger one at $4. The queue never stopped.

This stall is near the escalator

It's a wonder how they continue to keep their chicken rice at $3.50, and I deeply respect that. It's been years since I ate it although I stay nearby and I must say this is a winning plate of chicken rice from it's authentic tasting chicken broth, cold jelly chicken skin and tender meat, less oily rice. It just tastes healthy, compared to most chicken rice that's generous in both salt and oil

after a good sweat-it-out. This $5 plate from stall 21 is so sumptuous, and a generous serving I barely finished it. It's prawn mee how I like it - soaking in prawn essence, eggy fragrance, thin beehoon and thick noodles, with fatty pork slices.

This winner of the Michelin Bib for 4 years (2016-2019) definitely deserves the throne. The sauce brings out the fragrance of 30+ herbs, without being too potent - and it has been constantly cooked for 30+ years. Plus each plate packs about 1500mg of rice collagen. Unique taste no doubt.

I love how there's both delicately cut duck and chicken drumstick meat along its smooth hor fun which you can easily slurp it up. Also, those big, juicy chunks of mushrooms - just 👌👌altogether.

The pride in this hawker food won my heart. #supportlocal #traditionalfood

New flagship store at Laupasat - check it out!

Tried Chengji, 成记 (Stall 24) with their Pork Leg Bee Hoon ($5). Its fragrantly whipped together though I also realise its with my fave canned pork trotters - that familiar and comforting taste... Lime and chilli sauce recommended!

Also had the carrot cake from Stall 22 Hokkien Mee, crisp yet moist with a strong radish taste, felt like we didn't have enough!

Happy birthday SG - and one of my favourite part of it is our hawker food, and the tireless hawkers behind them 💛

I got this generous bowl of lor mee for just $2.50 near Parkway Parade, and it comes with a perfectly crisp fried fish, slices of lor bak, egg, fishcake and... very earthy lor mee sauce.

I'm usually very particular about lor mee, and this just checks all the right boxes. It gives a good kick with the vinegar and garlic.

And of course, what makes this stall the most memorable to me is....how the owners simply tell me that its alright i forgot my wallet, and to pay after the meal and that I should enjoy my piping hot bowl of lor mee first (came back afterwards). This trust right here - i'm so thankful.

Also ft H's char kuey teow thats a unique rendition in satay sauce - not the black one we expected but i guess still quite shiok


Had all the intentions to just get a $4 large bowl of wanton mee but truffle..... its super worth it still $6.50 for noodles soaked in truffle oil. Plus it comes with numerous/countless plump chewy + crisp fried wantons

I wish interim moves away from plastic utensils, but i can imagine what a logistical nightmare it is, especially with the crazy lunch crowd already.

Been wanting to try this for awhile, especially hearing how the noodles are made fresh and with more egg so its more springy, and the story of the lady boss. The sauce was less salty than i expected, considering how dark it is. Good stuff :-)

Tried their braised meat and black fungus noodles for $5. Unique combination!

What a spread!

Assam laksa ($4),
Claypot rice ($5)
Charkueyteow ($5)
Oyster omelette ($5)

Ranked in the order of how long we have fo wait, the oyster omelette did take a long while... During dinner time. I enjoyed them all, especially the unique and appetising assam laksa, which i hope can be found more easily around s'pore !! We also wish theres more oysters in our omelette, and that its crispier, but still good!

Even though it has a $6 price tag, but got it without much hesitation because Taiwah usually has a long queue! They are known for using the solefish to make their noodles and soup more fragrant!

The meepok is soaked in just the right amount of vinegar for me, with a dense and meaty dumpling - but overall i think its still slightly overpriced.
