This chee cheong fun is glorious. The skin is thin, slippery and silky smooth, and it’s filled up with plenty of tasty char siew bits and topped with sesame seeds. Fragrant isn’t an adjective I usually use to describe chee cheong fun but I’ll gladly use it on this one. The family who owns this stall is friendly as well. Go on a weekday morning if you can, the queue is slightly more manageable then.

Quite a nice seafood soup with a tasty clear soup, though expensive for the amount of ingredients. There’s prawns, fish, minced pork, a fishball, meatballs, fried fish cake, fish maw and lettuce. An extra $1 got me a lot of extra bittergourd. I like this with Ipoh hor fun.

Zion Road prawn mee is my favourite! Prices have gone up over the years and they’re now 8/12/16/20/25, but when you see the size of the prawns you understand why. The prawns are huge, and are of monstrous proportions if you pay $25. There’s also a good portion of tender pork ribs, and the soup is wonderfully rich with both a prawn and a porky fragrance.

I had the fish maw noodle soup which this stall is famous for. It comes in two sizes, $11 and $13, and I got the $11 one. I loved the huge soft chunks of fish maw. There’s also pork liver, mushrooms, minced pork and a few cabbage leaves. Unfortunately I didn’t really like the soup. Yes it is cloudy and eggy, but it is also loaded up with an overwhelming amount of MSG.

Loved the silky smooth thin skin of the chee cheong fun. The prawns are juicy and the soy sauce and sesame seeds are just right. One of the best chee cheong funs I’ve ever had, though I’m not sure if it’s worth the queue.

From Delicacy Fish Soup. Despite the good reviews online, there was barely any queue. The soup is clear and light with dried sole fish added to it. What I liked best was the thick chunks and good portion of fish. It’s not the best fish soup but it’s above average.

There’s a choice of small ($2.50, no dumplings), medium ($3, 2 dumplings) and large ($4, 6 dumplings). This was the large. While the mee kia is mediocre, the dumplings and the soup are the highlights. The skin of the dumplings is mediocre, but it encases this amazing filling of meat and dried fish that taste nothing like any other dumplings I’ve ever eaten. The soup is garlicky and flavourful, with lots of minced pork.

The Noodles stall usually has one of the longest queues. I don’t think this dish is on the menu, but everyone knows about it. Just tell the uncle or aunty “can can” (“mix mix” in Chinese) and you get a mix of all the ingredients – mushrooms, minced pork, fishballs, fishcake, ngoh hiang, shredded chicken, beansprouts, green vegetables, spring onions, wanton, shui jiao, and your choice of noodles, the default being a nice springy mee kia. And all for the price of $2.30! You just don’t get this type of value for money anywhere else. I had the soup form, but the dry form is good too.

Bak chor mee with mee pok. Decent bowl of noodles, satisfactory but not spectacular in taste. Generous portion of ingredients. I liked the addition of the crispy fried stuffed beancurd. Also liked the vinegary gravy.

Lovely place for breakfast and lunch, located on the first floor of Beauty World. I came here after walking in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and appreciated the comfort food in an air-conditioned environment. The french toast was eggy, moist but not soggy, and not too oily. Will return for more breakfasts!

Such an innovative twist on the traditional kaya toast! The earl grey milk spread was mildly sweet and combined beautifully with the salty butter.

I got this from the branch at Tan Tock Seng Hospital. The rice rolls are slightly springy and have a nice bounce when you bite into them. There was sufficient sweet sauce but not too much. There's self service spring onions and I sprinkled plenty on top of my bowl.
