The most important component here is the fluffy rice which is suffused with coconut-y flavour, and this went magnificently well with the sweet and spicy sambal. I also appreciated the freshly fried ikan bilis. The chicken wing was nice enough, but nothing out of the ordinary.

One of the better wanton noodles in Tampines, the noodles are perfectly QQ and slicked in a slightly sweet sauce. The star is the slightly fatty char siew, but the wantons unfortunately tasted faintly of freezer burn and were hard.

An under the radar stall at Tampines Round Market, Ju Ming Xiang's bak chor mee is worth a try for its generous amount of ingredients. The noodles lean towards al dente and the sauce is vinegar forward, both plus points for me.

There’s a large amount tender minced pork, pork slices and liver, along with pork meatballs. On top of that, there are even fishballs, as well as an admittedly uncrispy fried wanton. The only niggling thing was the slightly stale lard which detracted from the otherwise positive experience.

Vinegar at the serving station to add as to your taste is always appreciated at bak chor mee stalls. The noodles here have a stronger alkaline taste than usual, but I actually like that. They also ask if you’d like it more spicy, which I can appreciate.

The standard bowl here comes with a good amount of braised mushrooms, minced and sliced pork, liver and a single pork meatball. It’s a decent rendition overall.

@jofameepok's unique selling point are its undeniably addictive fried fish sticks which garnish every bowl of noodles. The deep-fried fish paste wrapped in beancurd skin is shatteringly crisp and savoury.

The basic bowl came with your usual suspects of minced pork and pork slices, 1 fishball as well as 2 pork meatballs that had a rough-hewn texture I enjoyed. A generous amount of sinfully oily crunchy pork lard only improves things.When it comes to the sauce and noodles, It's a decent if mild mix that warrants no complaints from me.

Without a doubt a must order, the grilled pork neck is magnificently smoky and succulent, streaked with melt-in-your-mouth fat and with bits of crispy char on its browned skin. This was utterly delicious and worthy of repeat ordering.

A little too sweet and not quite spicy enough for me, however the freshness and crunch of it more than made up for the qualities it lacked. Plenty of red onion and dried shrimp added bags of flavour. This is still a decent rendition.

Perhaps the weakest dish I've had amongst the numerous ones I've tried here, the pineapple rice was on the bland side and contained too little of the fruit. It was rather plain overall even with the addition of the meat floss.

With hints of smoke, splashes of garlic and hits of sweet spiciness, the kang kong hit all the right notes. The portion could have been a wee bit larger for the price though.

This is my go to for Thai food in Tampines. It's hardly exceptional, but always solid, dependable and tailored very much to local tastes.

Their green curry is rich and creamy, packing just enough heat and chockful of tender chicken and half-spheres of baby eggplant. The fragrance of Thai basil and chilli gives it a wonderfully inviting aroma, making it an excellent accompaniment with plain rice.
