Not sure why but Peanut Pancake or Mee Chiang Kueh, as it’s more commonly known as, feels like my childhood even though I don’t remember eating this often when I was young. I suppose that’s how eating this snack makes you feel, like a kid again!

It’s the perfect snack, dessert, or even as breakfast. This stall is always one I will visit when I’m at the Serangoon Gardens Market and it does not disappoint.

The pancake is crispy on the outside and has got that bouncy and slightly chewy texture on the inside. It’s really filled with peanuts as you can see from the picture so every mouthful has a good balance between peanut and pancake. I don’t usually like my sweet foods to have too much sugar so I do wish this was a little less sweet but I think for anyone else, the level of sweetness is just nice, not too sweet.

Honestly, this was an A+ meal.

We came for my dad’s birthday and shared a variety of dishes, the star of which was the Bistecca alla Fiorentina, a 1kg T-bone steak. We all like our meat a little red so we went for medium rare, and as you can see, it was perfect. It had those beautiful grill marks on the outside, a luscious red interior, and was incredibly tender. Some of the pieces on the outer parts of the steak were a little more cooked, around medium, while the inner pieces were rarer. The dish also came with roasted potatoes and cannellini beans.

We were here on a Monday evening, so it was a bit quieter and more enjoyable but still enough of a crowd for a buzz. Our waiter was attentive and quite friendly, knowing how to give recommendations and advice on the dishes and portion sizes as well as treating my dad to an additional glass of Grappa at the end of our meal. My dad had ordered one type and the waiter also gave him another type to try.

It’s definitely an authentic Italian restaurant, one of the few in my opinion, in Singapore, and worth paying a little more for. Be sure to ask for an indoor table if you want to be in the AC, as the tables outside can be a bit humid even with the fans on.

People eat to live, I live to eat.
