Would totally choose this bowl of curry chicken noodle over laksa any day 👌
.
Opted for the $5 portion and was rewarded with a warm bowl brimming with tender slices of steamed chicken, fish maw (YES), fishcakes, potato chunks, cockles, and beansprouts. The star of this dish is definitely the fluffy taupok which soaks up all the goodness and oozes with every bite.
.
The picture accurately depicts how rich the curry is. Infused with mild curry spices, the gravy wasn't overwhelming at all! The generosity of ingredients and savouriness of the curry is the perfect combination which made me slurp the bowl up with relish.

Just imagine kway teow doused in a flavourful sweet gravy with a savoury herbal note 😊 I opted for their braised duck leg which consisted of tender and succulent slices of duck meat. For the full experience, toss it together with the fried scallions, beansprouts and chilli for a velvety and crunchy experience.
.
My only gripe was that the kway teow has a slight alkaline taste 😂 Would have enjoyed it more if they used a thinner version of kway teow used normally in Ipoh hor fun!

Bathed in a soupy tangy vinegar sauce, I gave the ultra smooth noodles a good toss to coat every strand. What sets this stall apart from the rest is their soup. What is alluring about their soup is the umami flavour thickened with their ba chor, and egg. Pairing it with the al dente noodles which were firm to the bite, each slurp was robust and multidimensional. ☺

I would easily rate it as the best fish soup in the CBD as their broth definitely wins hands down as compared to other fish soup stalls in the area. What makes their broth so unique is the preserved vegetables and the addition of the fried garlic, as these ingredients help to elevate the flavour profile of their broth!

If you usually go for the fried fish option, you will realise that the meat would would to become soggy after a while. In this particular bowl of fried fish soup, the chunks of meat actually soaked up all the tasty broth and they are infused with both sweetness and savouriness. Each bite leaves me wanting more and my bowl was empty before I knew it 😂

To be very honest, I would crave for this from time to time, but I would strongly advise the takeaway option as it can become a real sweatfest with the huge crowd and poorly-ventilated dining area. 🤔

Interestingly, this plate of shredded chicken hor fun ($3.5) has a very distinct star anise flavour which is embedded in their gravy, giving it a good mix of savoury and spiciness. The slippery soft noodles, extremely tender chicken slices, and huge juicy are all drenched in the glistening gravy - needless to say, each bite was simply divine!

As much as it is very tasty and makes you forget about the rest of the world during the slurping session, it is highly recommended to slurp everything up CAREFULLY to prevent "messy splatters" 😂

Touted as being one of Singapore's best ban mian, I can safely proclaim that it does truly live up to its name. Their broth is concentrated with so much goodness from the ingredients which they used in the boiling process - ikan billis, pork bones, and prawns!

I have to admit that sheng mian (or any other forms of yellow noodle) is not exactly my top choice of noodles, and I would usually go for you mian. But, I would gladly make an exception for this store. Being freshly handmade, their sheng mian is al dante and springy. Encompassed in their rich broth, every single bite bursts with umami without it being overly salty.

Each bowl also comes with a large fresh prawn, lean pork slices, vegetables, and the two most important toppings - the egg and crispy anchovies which help to bring the whole dish together and add an extra oomph to it.

Located in Lorong 8 Toa Payoh, their snaking long queue makes this stall hard to miss. I would usually go for the soup version as it feels more satisfying to me. Even on a hot day, this bowl of noodles still feels extremely shiok🔥That's how amazing it is - definitely worth every drop of sweat and penny!

I have never been a huge fan of black carrot cake as I prefer the white version, but this stall converted me with the sweet black soy sauce which caramelised during the cooking process. The dish was cooked in a wok on high heat which accentuated the charred taste and sweet chye poh flavour 🔥

This store is arguably one of the best I have tried! Wish I could just have this everyday 😂

Served piping hot in claypot filled with dark savoury sauce with strong ginger fragrance, and topped with a fistful of spring onion, the frog meat is extremely tender and sweet! We mixed the dark gravy sauce with the porridge, giving it a nice velvety texture 😋

Also, as it is situated in a hawker centre, you could also order other varieties of food such as Mala or beer to complement the frog porridge 😉 Will definitely be back for this!
