By this, I mean everything coffee shop, kopitiam, hawker centre, and markets! Cheapest, most worth it & best kind of my favourite food😋 Ratings take into consideration price of the dish, quality of the dish, and overall service and ambience of the location if applicable!🌟

I liked this a lot, and I think it’s pretty affordable for a meal in a tourist attraction. It was sufficiently flavourful and of adequate portion, making it filling for a meal. Although this is no authentic back pepper beef teppanyaki, I have no complaints! This is definitely one of the better meals to have in the Zoos.

Sesame shoyu sounded like an unorthodox option with black pepper and teriyaki as the alternatives, but it was surprisingly extremely tasty and flavourful! Only gripe I have is that together with the rice, it would be a drier option because it did not have much gravy to it. Still, I thought it was pretty delicious and definitely one of the better dishes within the Mandai Parks.

The soup was pretty tasteless, which made it seem like a healthier counterpart to the fried chicken. The fried chicken cutlet was good, but the noodles really did not have much flavour to it. Overall a mediocre meal but not complaining since it is rather affordable considering the location. Would probably try something else here!

This spicy chicken tasted like mala chicken. I liked the flavour but sadly the portion of chicken wasn’t really generous. There were 5 relatively small pieces with rice as well as a lot of other vegetables, which wouldn’t be really worth $10.90 outside but for the River Safari it is considerably a reasonable price.. still a decent food option in a tourist place though!

This is a HUGE WARNING that If you do try to buy from this shop during the peak hour, especially on the weekends, be prepared for a 1-2 hour wait. I bought this and it took about 1h15 minutes my order. I realised it was not because the stingray wasn’t done, but the vegetables. So by the time I brought the stingray home, it was not as hot as it should’ve been. Nonetheless, Chan BBQ has been featured on social media plenty, resulting in their widespread popularity compared to the other BBQ stalls there. The stingray was huge and meaty which honestly took me by surprise, I was afraid they would kinda cheat me out of. And give me a smaller stingray. The sambal when drizzled with lime was still on the drier side, and I’d prefer it to be slightly wetter with my stingray. Perhaps this would be different when served physically on a sizzling hot plate. Nonetheless sambal was really spicy and good, and generous at that! It was overall a good meal other than the waiting time and haphazard service.

From Sin Bedok North BBQ Chicken Wings Store at 85 Fengshan Centre. From what I know, there are 3 stalls which sell grilled chicken wings here. The most famous sells it at $1.30/pc. This and another stall sells it at $1.40/pc. Safe to say that I can’t tell much difference in terms of taste - after all it’s a dish that is pretty hard to go wrong. At least for this stall, their chicken was hot, grilled and beautifully charred. It was 10c more than another stall but there wasn’t a queue, although they gave me a heads up that I had to wait for 30 minutes (probably means they’re quite famous too right?😂). I guess my only gripe is that their chilli wasn’t served with lime. Not sure if it’s because it’s a takeaway and they forgot to give, or they genuinely don’t have it with their chicken. Unfortunately, lime would really add another layer of flavour to grilled chicken wings which I utterly adore. Nonetheless dipping the chicken with chilli only is suffice as well, because its just simple deliciousness.

From Chan BBQ stall in Fengshan 85.
This Kang kong really lives up to its name as it was really spicy! I admit that I ordered the small portion, but I’ve always expected the portion of vegetables to be more generous so I was pretty disappointed because I felt like the portion was a bit smaller than usual. But a great complement to the other ingredients from this stall for people who believe that there must be vegetable and fibre in your meal!

In takeaway form, they very kindly separated the sauce and oysters from the omelette. Not bad for the small portion. Unlike fried oyster which is cooked flour, this is a more foolproof choice if you want to avoid the starchiness and just want all the egg. However, the chilli is different, with this chilli being on the slightly sweeter and less spicy side. I must say I prefer the chilli for the fried oyster, but I personally enjoyed the combination this gave me as well. Really delicious when you eat it with rice because it’s kind of like a gravy!!😜

From the ‘85 Western Food’ Stall.
It was sufficiently delicious but the portion for $6.50 was a tad too small as I believe I can find bigger portions elsewhere! The only thing that was generous was the black pepper sauce at the side; but overall, chicken, albeit looking big, was thin and the portion of sides were pretty small. Nonetheless, it’s still a decent dish.

From Shanghai Xiao Long Bao stall, which is bustling for their famous Xiao Long Bao, which can be sold out before the day ends. When I went, they only were selling noodles, so I went for their zha Jiang mian. For $3.50, it was a small portion of not too thick, well textured noodles, but extremely dry. There was essentially no sauce at all, and I solved this with the chilli that they provided. I must say that the chilli was slightly spicy and sour which really gave an added layer to the zha Jiang mian. I can’t imagine how dry it would’ve been without the chilli, and I was personally disappointed by how it was initially served; it was only the chilli that gave saving grace. But for $3.50, I don’t wish to expect much as well!

Comfort food in the realm of expensive restaurants; so while it is $8.10 for a bowl of curry chicken with rice and a huge cup of tea, I would say it’s reasonably price. Curry was thick and spicy, with lots of taupok and potatoes but.. so few chicken midwings! There were only 3 small ones, which made the meal less satisfying. But I’m not going to lie and not say that on some days I find myself craving for the curry toast box offers, because I enjoy the gravy on rice more than I think.
Tea was served in a huge cup, always preferred yakun but not complaining since the drink comes more worth it than the set, and I needed my caffeine fix.

For a plate of regular wanton mee, you get 3 dumplings in the side of soup. For upsized, you get 6 dumplings and arguably more char siew. If we had known, we wouldn’t have purchased the soup! For $3, the soup had a GENEROUS amount of wanton, probably more than 10 inside!
That aside, we waited for our serving for about half an hour because of how popular it is. I appreciate their generosity of wantons in the soup. The boiled wantons itself were small, but filled with ingredients as well. However, there was nothing surprising about its flavour, not much sweetness to it.
The winner of this wanton mee would be the charsiew. The flavour of the charsiew was amazing. It had a sweet charred flavour to it, complementing the tangy, well-textures egg noodles that would come second in place.
The wanton mee here is oil-based, and you can choose to add dark sauce to it yourself. If I had known I would have done it! While I cannot confirm that I would return, if I do, I will definitely takeaway as it is quite difficult to secure a seat in the small Coffeeshop.
Worth the experience! Especially if you are out and about looking for the better wanton mees in Singapore.
