Formerly known as Serangoon Nasi Padang, this famous hawker stall is helmed by Uncle Tan and Auntie Cheong who have been cooking nasi padang since 1983. We had BBQ Chicken ($4) and other dishes. Grilled to crispy golden exterior, this boneless chicken has been their signature dish since 1983 ๐Ÿฅบ The chicken is marinated with 17 different spices and is a must try! ๐Ÿซถ

Overall, quite a variety of affordable yet delicious dishes. If youโ€™re up for a treat, try their Sedap Omakase Sets (SOS) that is exclusively available on weekends. Worth the travel โœจ

Apart from the boneless fish served with Nonya curry ๐ŸŸ we also tried the sweet-tangy achar, BBQ sotong and sambal kang kong.

Spice lovers, donโ€™t forget to add a dollop of sambal into your plate! Their sambal definitely packs a punch ๐Ÿ”ฅ

For vegetables, we had the ladyโ€™s fingers and brinjal ๐Ÿ† wok fried with homemade sambal belacan. Apart from this, you can also choose from stir-fried spinach, cabbage, long beans and begedil (though weโ€™d recommend visiting earlier for more choices) ๐Ÿฅฌ

With prices starting from $4.50, enjoy a plate of fried rice (comes in original, tobiko, tom yum and XO flavours). The chef behind this cozy hawker stall used to work in esteemed establishments such as Hua Ting Restaurant in Orchard Hotel and Golden Peony in Centennial Hotel ๐Ÿจ

Donโ€™t miss out on their tom yum fried rice! The addictive sour-spicy rendition turned out to be our favourite ๐Ÿ”ฅ Pork chop is well-marinated and tender ๐Ÿ–

Personally, I would get the tom yum fried rice when I revisit or even try the XO scallop one! If youโ€™re planning to make a visit soon, check out their ongoing CNY set combo ๐Ÿฅณ

The chefs arenโ€™t stingy when it comes to the ingredients. With a base of Taiwanese pearl rice ๐Ÿš the grains are well-separated and each grain is coated with egg ๐Ÿณ We added on the chicken chop which was juicy and tender! Best enjoyed with the homemade chilli ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ

This home-grown traditional popiah brand has been serving handmade popiah since 1958 โœจ

Started out as a push cart stall and now with 10 outlets islandwide, their new outlet is located within Sim Lim Square. The establishment is also Muslim-friendly and affordably priced ๐Ÿ’ธ

Canโ€™t visit without trying their handmade popiah ๐ŸŒฏ The signature item is packed with delicious crunchy turnip fillings and crunchy bits for added textural contrast. I like that their popiah skin isnโ€™t too thick but is still substantial enough to hold all the ingredients together ๐Ÿฅบ Also available with chicken cutlet and prawn.

Exclusive to Sim Lim Square only, the flavourful laksa is chopped into bite size pieces ๐Ÿœ The thick white beehoon comes with prawn, fish cake, taupok and shrimp chilli paste. Value for money!

(update: heard that there were some tweaks made to the broth based on customer feedback)

Also had one of their staples kueh pie tee. Crispy pastry shell filled with turnip fillings.

Overall, a good place to find quick and affordable meals and snacks. You can also purchase their DIY sets for your own popiah party!

First time trying their waffles. We had the chicken cutlet ๐Ÿ— one which was well-complemented with the sweet savoury combination of sauces. Apart from the satisfying savoury waffle, they also have other assorted flavours that you can find in a typical neighbourhood waffle spot (blueberry, kaya, peanut butter) and ice cream waffles ๐Ÿง‡

Have you heard of this spot that sells affordable dishes from only $1.90 ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿฅน

Previously located at Serangoon Garden, Nic & Tom Eatery has since shifted to Chinatown.

I had the seafood cheese beehoon in their previous location and this time round, we decided to try the scallop cheese beehoon. It comes with a generous portion, including prawns and succulent scallops ingredients. This fusion dish is quite unique and thereโ€™s no in between for this: you either love it, or hate it ๐Ÿคญ

First time trying this type of offal ($9). It has quite a chewy texture. Apart from the more unusual swirly intestine, the eatery also sells pig intestine ($8) which is on the fattier side ๐Ÿท
