Best hawker food, tried & tested 🥟

We ordered two portions of chicken wings and all this cost $5.50, which was really quite affordable. The basmati rice was so incredibly fragrant, fluffy and flavourful, the egg was perfectly done with a runny yolk and all the ingredients had significant effort put into them - all fresh and satisfying. The only gripe I would have would be that the chicken could be bigger (but then again I’m very used to Punggol Nasi Lemak’s giant chicken drumsticks), and the chilli wasn’t very spicy.

We had both the harcheonggai wings and the cutlet, and we loved both! The portion size was so generous that I was struggling to finish my food at the end, and the wings and cutlet were so juicy and well flavoured with the prawn paste. I’d definitely recommend this place, so give them a try. The prices are really affordable too, $5+ for a large cutlet. Their rice is fragrant and the chilli is really good as well!

The huge juicy fried chicken is to die for everytime! Their standards are consistently high, and their ingredients are freshly made and really good.

Back here again! Coffee here is strong, smooth, extremely well-flavoured and really the whole package. I’ve introduced this to my friends and they have consistently been mindblown by the standard of the coffee here, as well as the really affordable prices. This is really my absolute favourite neighbourhood/heartland coffee place!

($13) This was good! The sotong pieces were large and juicy, and the salted egg coating was very flavourful, with just the right amount of spicy flavour. Our only gripe is that $13 feels rather pricey for a relatively small dish, but most zhichar places do charge prices like these.

We ordered the Large (portion for 4-5) for $15 to share among 3 people and this white bee hoon was glorious! It was incredibly smooth and flavourful yet light, the noodles were coated in the broth perfectly. The flavour was creamy with slight wok-hei, and the servings of prawns and squid were pretty generous. Would definitely come back again for this!

Second time trying this, and this time I got the white version ($5, comes in $4/5/6) and it was really good! The white version may look plainer on first glance, but I assure you it’s very flavourful, yet light on the palate. For $5, you get quite a good portion of nice springy noodles, with 2 fried dumplings, 2 wantons with a really flavourful prawn soup, and lots of char siew and fried Thai sausages. Being a spicy food lover, I added at least half of the chilli flakes into it and it really gave it an extra spicy kick. I’d come back anytime for this!

We had 中辣 which didn’t feel too spicy; I’ve had spicier 中辣 mala from other places but it still packed sufficient punch. A huge plus point here is that the ingredients here were really fresh and the prices decently affordable - we shared this between 2 people and it cost $11.40. Will recommend if you are in the area!

Had porridge here for lunch on a Friday afternoon - the queue gets long from 12pm onwards, so we managed to beat the queue around 11.45. Do note that you need to top up to add egg and youtiao! I didn’t really like the youtiao though because it wasn’t crispy and felt kinda soft and chewy, unless it’s meant to be like that... I also found the porridge slightly bland by itself, had to add quite some soy sauce and pepper. I actually think I still prefer the Kovan market porridge. But good choice of wholesome food if you’re in the area!

This Hokkien mee is the more soupy kind, rather than the more fried, dry kind. I added all the chilli provided inside and it made it even better; very flavourful and yet packing a good punch. I’d say this is one of the better ones I’ve tried, but I still love chomp chomp’s most, and Yi Ji Hokkien Mee at Kovan (near Punggol nasi lemak) for their crazy chilli. 👅

Had the small green curry ($6), large Pad Thai ($9) and the Giant Phad Kapao (huge Thai basil chicken with egg and rice). The green curry and the basil chicken were really good and portions were huge, but we all found the pad thai too sweet for our liking. Will recommend if in the area!

The ban mian here is really good - I think the best part of it is the chilli that really packs a punch. The chilli isn’t just ordinary chilli sauce - it’s fresh chilli which really gives the ban mian some extra edge. It’s really spicy though (coming from a spice lover) so if you think you can’t take it, ask for less chilli! The noodles are soft and springy and I love the pork slices and meatballs.

Already thinking of my next meal 👅
