Finally trying the food here out. Didnโ€™t expect much because Iโ€™ve never had good experiences with Thai food from Hawker centres. So I was pretty shook by this phad thai. Itโ€™s better than some of the restaurant in sg (and I dare say some places in Thailand even). Iโ€™d crave this.

Theyโ€™re a new entrant for the 2021 Michelin Bib Gourmand so I was curious to see if it lived up to its award and damn right it did. For one, the portion sizes here are MASSIVE. My porridge was spilling over when I carried it back to the table. Porridge is also on the grainier side which I quite liked. It was also packed with ingredients. Got their poached chicken on the side too and this was Uber tender and juicy too. The place is pretty ulu but Iโ€™d go back for it.

There are two popular curry noodle stalls at Hong Lim. Iโ€™ve tried both and this one has a thicker more rich gravy. Itโ€™s rlly good and I can see why ppl like it. But considering that you have to eat this like a bowl of soup, would prefer it to be of a more soupy consistency like the one upstairs. Not saying itโ€™s bad but Iโ€™d rather be dipping bread into this than eating it with noodles. Iโ€™d still have it again though.

Got the Wagyu beef bowl. For $6.80 itโ€™s rlly damn worth it. Beef was tender and they give a lot of vege so itโ€™s a very all rounded dish. Good for people who need to up their fibre intake.

The curry chicken here is solid and damn nostalgic but the sellers were very rude. They were very aggressive and impatient with the old man in front of me which is quite a turn off. Idk if curry chicken is good enough to bring me back lol.

Iโ€™ve never left Alexandra food centre without getting an Avocado drink. There is King Avocado and Mr Avocado. I like both lel. The stall owners of both stalls also very nice.

Saw that this received a Michelin recommendation. Coffee was good but not the best. Kaya toast was a disaster. Bread wasnโ€™t properly toasted and looked pretty sad. Youโ€™re better off getting some your kaya toast fix from ya kun.

The queue is hella intimidating but because I am a a FOMO Singaporean I just went to queue lah. In the end, it was a good choice. The noodles here sibei springy and nice. The pork and char siew is ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป THE FAT TO MEAT RATIO THO. Wah and I only paid $3.50 for it. How to not queue for it??

I would rate this a solid 9/10 but I found a bone in it and I actually swallowed it. A shame because itโ€™s a damn good bowl of porridge. Very creamy, chock full of ingredients. I would eat it again though, I hope this was just a one time mishap.

Got the KL curry option ($4). Interesting. I like it. Curry wasnโ€™t too gao and the chee cheong fun damn silky like my silk pillow also cannot fight. Would eat again.

Saw this EVERYWHERE for the past few days so I knew I had to try it. It was opened by a ex-Naked Finn chef so I had high hopes and the fish soup here lived up to it. Fish was fresh, bouncy and firm, did not have a unfresh, fishy smell. The soup was on point too and had a nice sweetness from the fish. Itโ€™s $6 for a bowl which some may find a little pricey but I think itโ€™s worth it!

Iโ€™m not a fan of lor mee and I had no intention of eating it today but when I went to ABC brickworks I was somehow drawn to it?? Confused but ok, got a bowl of it from this unassuming stall that is easily missed and WOW. Can foresee myself eating here a lot more. The gravy was of just the right consistency and had a decent amount of garlic. Came with ingredients like pork belly, some fried stuff etc. For $3 pretty worth it. Noodles were also not soggy. Am happy.

I eat like a sumo wrestler
