Was quite 嘛 but not too spicy (we ordered 小辣). Not bad, my dinner buddy really likes this!

This comes with vegetables on top + ikan bilis which was crisp and light and salty! Ckt has wok hei and was very clean tasting.


Hurried to amoy to queue for hankee which has insanely long queues daily. We queued for about 30 mins.

The soup was light but flavourful, and the bottom parts which were filled with garlic had an extra kick of flavour which was delish.

The fish was the pièce de résistance (aka the carry) wow I am impressed! The fish slices were thick and kinda bouncy - texture was great!! The natural sweetness of the fish shone through, and was balanced with some slight savouriness. There was no fishy smell as well.

Was great having this delicious bowl of fish soup on a cold rainy day :)

An old heartwarming grandma who prepares the popiah with love when ordered! :”) just simple honest good old popiah

Cheap XLBs!!!!!! A stall which I have always enjoyed patronising but it seems like today it wasn’t as pleasant as I rmbed it to be :-( no soup in XLB which is impt in a GOOD XLB!! And wanton wasn’t too flavourful sadly. But!!! Ordered their Cong You Bing (not in pic) today and IT WAS GOOD 👅 doughy but still crispy!!!!

A nearby breakfast option that we always go to when we can’t think of where to go. The ccf is paired with a sweet brown sauce which is satisfying (I prefer brown sauce over red sauce). Not the besttt hawker ccf I’ve tried, but still sufficiently soft. Sometimes I eat it plain with sesame oil which sounds bland but it’s good!

The carrot cake from he zhong is great as usual! It’s something that we’ve eaten so many times over the past 10+ years :)

- fishball had caipo, green n red bits, quite nice texture to bite
- taukee stuffed with fish meat: not bad, soft n tasty
- taupok was also stuffed with fish meat, tasted slightly different from the normal taupok which was nice
- soup is clear and clean tasting
- spinach was crunchy

a rather decent meal, but you should add noodles/rice to make it more filling

This came with chicken, pork belly, lupcheong (chinese sausage), salted fish. The chicken, albeit a rather thick cut, was cooked well and was not dry. Unexpected! Love the chinese sausage. The other components were decent. Rice was nice and separated, like you could see each individual grain and it wasn’t clumpy. Overall a satisfying meal, but the $12 portion was definitely too much for 2 people. Would be just nice for 3/4 people. I called in to order 1 hour in advance, so please call in if not you’ll have an insane wait time in the humid market.

I got the meepok w vinegar only while my lunch bud got the normal meepok (chili, vinegar & ketchup I think). Components that I liked best: soup, noodles & fishballs! Added more vinegar to my noods bc I love vinegar. A spoonful of the nicely cooked noods + garnishings (fried garlic, lard & spring onion) + mushroom was gr8. The soup is tasty, prob from the natural flavours of the ingredients (don’t think there’s MSG). Fishball didn’t have a fishy taste, tasted like the fishballs from my childhood (cc margaret drive fishball). The prawns, fishcake and pork slices were decent too, the pork slices are not the dry lean kind. My lunch bud liked the liver (I don’t like it so I gave it all to him), he said that it was cooked well, kinda like medium rare such that it’s not too rubbery. This has 1-4-1 so I’ll gladly pay $4 for this!

The skin was of the right thickness, and I appreciated the natural sweetness of the filling / meat juices. The flavour profile of the filling could have a little more dimension, but this already is not bad :) will be back to try the fried dumplings!

Enjoyed this!! The mhk was smooth n slippery but still had a bite to it, the broth was tasty and they were q generous with the ingredients. Lots of minced meat & veg, and the ikan bilis! was! nice. I was also surprised that there was dried scallop. I’m sold :) -W
