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!🌟

Actually surprised at how this was executed. While i thought it was more dry laksa than hokkien mee, it did the job of satisfying my laksa craving especially with the savouriness being pretty on point. A huge bonus is the generous portion of ingredients! The plate was choke full of fishcake, taupok, egg, and prawns🤤 my favorite laksa is just a stone’s throw away from Power Coffee House, but I’d still recommend this cafe quietly nestled in the heartlands of Bedok 85.

Now that self-service buffet has resumed, to join the “buffet” party without burning a hole in my wallet, I visited one of my favourite no frills joint with free flow ice cream and drinks. While the food itself is not free flow, it’s always good to have just one portion of mains, and then unlimited portions of drinks and dessert. That being said, the portion for the spicy cheese and chicken ramen was so huge, making me feel like I was at a real buffet.There was a generous amount of chicken slices in the noodles, and the soup was decently flavourful with an adequate spicy kick. An affordable, decent, and filling noodle option here.

Wok Express at NTU North Spine is a recent addition, but one that is welcomed especially with the Wok Hey fad a while ago. Nonetheless, everyone loves a good plate — more of box, of fried rice. Opted for the XO Fried Rice because I wanted something more flavourful than the usual egg fried rice. Safe to say, while the flavour of XO definitely could’ve been stronger, it lived up decently to my expectations of a fast-food fried rice concept. The base price is $6.60, which is a choice of fried rice with 3 other ingredients, whereby you have a plethora of classic fried rice ingredients to choose from. On that note, you can add as many ingredients as you want, as long as its within your budget.

I know its not the wisest decision to spend $6.30 on a bowl of laksa but Katong Laksa was literally my childhood, and I cannot lie and say that I don’t occasionally dream of it. Katong laksa is not the most affordably priced, but there are more exorbitant bowls out there. There’s something rich and creamy about the laksa broth, that gives a good spicy kick when you request for the addition of chilli. The already cut silky smooth noodles don’t require you to use a chopstick — so take mouthfuls of noodles, soup, and cockles all at the same time. The prawns were thin and measly, but being here a number of times, I wasn’t really expecting much from the ingredients here. Nonetheless, I’ll still come back for their pretty solid laksa broth and the nostalgia.

Curry chicken was super shiok! Generous amount of gravy with an amazing consistency. It was both spicy and creamy enough for me. I definitely could have done with more chicken meat, but you should know I polished off the gravy.

Rendang was on the sweeter side here. But like the curry chicken, they were very generous with their gravy! Not a lot of chicken here probably because it’s just a small thigh, and I honestly didn’t see how this was ‘crispy’. For a moment I thought they gave me the wrong order, but with the chicken doused in gravy it might seem impossible to uphold the standards of crispness. Plus points for their perfect looking egg though! This looks good and tastes decent, but I’d honestly go straight for their chicken curry!

📍Blanco Court Beef Noodles
Managed to try the dry version of beef noodles from Blanco Court Beef Noodles. Thought I would prefer this much more over the soup version but this proved me wrong. The gravy of the beef noodle was decent enough, but the beef slices were too chewy to my liking. Somehow, the soup version seemed to be the more flavourful version.

Well-executed bowl of mala minced pork noodles. Noodle texture was pretty decent, and the ramen egg was adequately flavourful. Wantons were adequately plump and juicy, Overall Mala taste was nothing too spicy or numbing, so feel free to add the “shiok chilli” to your bowl to jazz up the flavours. It seems like Wanton Seng is famous for their “shiok chilli”, which comes in two versions — one that is not too spicy and one that is a killer! The non-spicy version is on the sweeter side, while their killer version is truly a killer, so put it in moderation!

Twosome noods — a chance for you to get the best of roasted delights in a bowl of wanton noodles. Char Siu, Roasted Pork, and Wantons. What more can you ask for? Drizzle a bit of their shiok chilli, or douse your bowl in it if you want, this “modern take” on your classic bowl of wanton noodles is sure to satisfy that noodle craving (undeniably with a higher price point). Nonetheless, with good vibes, service, and drinks, this is a price I would not mind paying.

📍Blanco Court Beef Noodles
Usually go for dry beef noodles but it was completely sold out that night, so I went for their soup version. Surprisingly tasty and flavourful broth, but I think it got a bit too salty after a while. Nonetheless, a pretty decent bowl of beef noodles at a food court, albeit slightly expensive.

Landed my hands on a OG Lemak Set when I went to Newton food centre on a weekend evening. Although I was meaning to try their rendang sets, they were unfortunately sold out for the day.

I was absolutely blown away by the sambal belachan. Nasi Lemak is admittedly not my go to meal, but when I eat it, I look out for its fragrance and more importantly, their chilli. OG Lemak serves their Nasi Lemak with two kinds of chilli — sambal Tunis and sambal belachan. The sambal Tunis is the more common chilli you’d get in your Nasi lemak, giving sweeter nodes to your meal. I did however, adore the sambal belachan because of the very well-executed sour and spicy kick it gave.

Because their rice is twice steamed, the result was a soft and lightly textured plain of rice. I did not find it fragrant enough though. Upgrading my chicken to a chicken thigh, the portion was sizably decent. The chicken itself was pretty unique, because it’s unlike the fried chicken wing you’d find at your usual Nasi lemak stalls. The batter was thin and crispy, which makes the whole meal feel slightly less tad oily. Whilst unique, whether or not I’d prefer this over my usual fried chicken wing is a whole new issue. Truth is, I don’t. The chicken was huge but dry, and their take on chicken skin was not enticing enough to win me over. Let’s be real, the higher price point doesn’t make this very attractive either, especially when you can get much cheaper and more fragrant options out there.

Just Acia holds a lot of nostalgia for me, especially because I remember it as the place to go for affordable set meals and free flow drinks and ice cream when I was a secondary school student. It is unfortunate to hear that Just Acia closed its longstanding outlet at Dhoby Ghaut xchange, but I believe you can still find it at Pasir Ris, as well as Bedok (where I went). Possibly because the food seems like a classic canteen style food that does not focus on quality but rather, affordability, which has made it less enticing. Furthermore, with inflation, prices cannot safely say that they are affordable, as compared to hawker centre prices.

I went for the spicy chicken and fried gyoza set, which honestly surprised me. Granted the gyoza was that of frozen gyoza that can be said was subpar, especially because it was not crisp enough, the spicy chicken was pretty good. The spicy sauce was flavourful and… really spicy, which went very well with the white rice and kimchi. Overall, the portion was decent, and I think what will make the price you pay truly worth it is if you get your fill of drinks and ice cream. The drinks range from soft drinks to coffee, and the ice cream flavours rotate each time. There is a slight hassle due to the pandemic regulations when it comes to taking the free flow items, but do be patient as service staff would need time to attend to your requests.
