This was the kovan outlet near my house but I can't seem to find it here. Food at Hansik restaurant is always consistently good and I esp love the lunch sets which come w free flow banchan!! at really affordable prices too!! I've been going w my family since young n seen how theyve really grown from a much smaller and less crowded space and I think they rlly deserve the love!!

Loved the congee, Japanese style 红油抄手 and XO carrot cake. Wasn't a fan of the bolo bun-ish liushabao bcos it was really SO jelak given sweet exterior + interior but I know I'm the exception!! All in all almost everything we ordered was of exceptional quality so I'd say go here and skip the other v well known place down the road (why do people go there again? Sorry to my mind it just reminds me of NSFs exhausted after a night out at zouk's old JIAK KIM Street premises).

So good. Nearly comparable to the one I had in hua ting!!

Haven't come across a stall like this in a mainstream-ish food court like Koufu! Pretty interesting, they have skewers like those for satay lok lok and you can mix and match as many as you'd like (3 meat and 3 veg for $5.50) if I remember correctly. I went for another fixed item 招牌捞渔粉, which sounded dodgy but tasted really good! Came with super fresh fish, veg, tofu and buckwheat noodles in a rather milky sesame broth - kinda like pork collagen broth from BIAP but less salty and way healthier. Reminded me of a cold winter day in Beijing some months back :-)

Got the tofu bibim salad which had a rather heavy sweet chilli sauce (so maybe not health in a bowl after all?) and really fresh ingredients. Tofu was so firm and meaty that I didn't regret choosing this over the options w meat. Yummy!!!

Everything here, including this chirashi don, was fresh, decently portioned and excellently presented. Prices werent too steep either, considering the quality. Really enjoyed my meal here, courtesy of my brother.

Mr prata sucked big time the last time I tried it (I'm talking palak paneer which was so watery the green parts separated from the water and anaemic thosai)
Was forced to head there yesterday afternoon coz everything else in the area was too far out from my campus and was feelin sulky about it cos I'm quite particular about my egg thosai but WOW WHAT A CHANGE! This was crisp without a fault and HUGE and the dal and sambar were decent enough too. Thumbs up to whoever works there on weekends, any other time, go at ur own risk.

Dover Road Kai Kee Wanton Noodle

My favorite wanton mee in the whole world and no I will not stop raving about it. It reminds me of childhood, of pontian wanton mee when it first came to sg without any hype and wasn't in every single capitaland mall, of strolls to the coffee shop down the road from my house to buy wanton mee in a takeaway kopi bag before tuition on Saturday afternoons. Doesn't hurt that the people at this store are always smiley too, reminding me of grandma and grandpa. They also speak almost entirely in canto and love a short exchange with customers!

No. These are by far the worst kaya ballz I've ever had. Yakun should take these off their menu immediately and stick to the classics. Each ball was doughy and rather cakey in a DRY kind of way and with the tiniest glob of kaya pipped nonchalantly on top. No. There's a kiosk in the middle of bugis street selling the same thing but MUCH better and if I recall, also cheaper. But honestly just get them when you cross the causeway, nothing compares to those in Malaysia!

Doesn't look like much but this is the love of my life RIGHT HERE. I love jianbing so much when I was staying in Beijing for a bit I had it almost thrice a week...... Quintessential breakfast food there, but almost impossible to find here - trust me I've searched everywhere. It's tough to get the right sauce here - the only other store I've found dumps hoisin sauce over premade jianbing wrapper and calls it a day. Blasphemy!! But here, the sauce is just right: a little sweet, salty and very suited to the singaporean palate I feel. Skin and the 薄脆 (fried wanton wrapper) are commendable as well. Do give this a try!! I mean both times I've been here everyone is just lining up for the cheap malatang and at this point I'm just really confused by why mala and not jianbing took Singapore by storm these past few years. Its a big trend in other countries and the lack of it here is slightly offensive. Oh well. Enjoy!!

The stall is called Dover Rd Lai Kee Wanton Mee and it is my favorite wanton mee in the whole of sg - - lean cuts of char siew, springy noodles, generous serving of vegetables. No particular ingredient is really the star here but they come together for a simple yet flavourful dish.

I love Korean food and I've been coming to Manna Story for years now with my family. Their steamed egg and seafood pancake is to die for! This place is never really crowded and I can't understand why - hands down beats all the other chain Korean restaurants in the vicinity.
