The oyster omelette must be by far the best in Singapore. The all-on-one-plate dishes (like pork chop rice, curry chicken rice) are reasonably priced. The à la carte dishes tend to be expensive. Either the organisation is terribly inefficient, or the (very nice) staff overworked, because the wait at Maddie’s can be maddeningly long, between 15 min and one hour!

Tempted by Wong Ah Yoke’s review in the ST, we tried delivery service for One Prawn Noodle. We ordered the 3-combo and the Super Prawn mee soups, and added the pig tail soup out of greed. The delivery arrived early. The broth is easily one of the best in Singapore. The lard is sinful but oh so yummy. Not sure it makes sense for junior celebrity chef Gwyneth to do this, but it’s to the great benefit of food lovers, so thank you and bravo!

Thanks to the circuit breaker, we discovered TTS via delivery, as we would not have ventured to Geylang to try it. The soups arrived hot, and all the three we ordered were excellent (turtle claypot, black chicken, and cordyceps) - in many ways better than at Soup Restaurant! To accompany the soup, the yam rice is not extremely yummy, but still yammy and quite good. Even the mundane radish omelette is commendable. Tan Ser Seng is the Tan Tock Seng of soups!

The roast meats here are far from being the best in Singapore, so the almost-cult status enjoyed by this stall is a bit mysterious. However, the food is good - in fact better than that at restaurants charging several times the price here. Fantastic value !

Following a renovation a few years back, this is easily the cleanest hawker centre in Singapore. Not as large as some others (like Maxwell, Chinatown Complex), but still includes some countrywide famous stalls, for shui kueh, Hainan chicken rice, roast meats, pig organ soup, hokkien mee, kway teow, etc.

Tekka (aka Zhujiao or KK market) is a Singapore institution. It is a wet market where you can buy meat, vegs and fresh fruit at a fraction of prices at Huber’s Butcher or Cold Storage. In fact, there are wives of billionaires who still shop here. It is also a huge and diverse hawker centre, with the highest number of South Asian stalls in Singapore - North Indian, South Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and probably SriLankan too if you look hard. You will also find many Chinese (chicken rice, bak chor mee, etc) and Malay stalls. In the old days, there was a slaughterhouse here (hence the name of the Buffalo Road). Maybe Tekka should have a stall selling buffalo Bistecca?

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
