Feeling famished as I skipped breakfast, I took a leap of faith and ordered the most expensive noodles on the menu. It was the pork tendon teochew noodles. I must admit that I was pretty impressed by the value of the noodles; shrimp, fishball, pork ball, minced meat, pork tendon and pork slices. The entire dish overall was above average and what left a deep impression was the pork tendons which were so flavorful that I will definitely eat it again! At $6, it was pretty acceptable for me for having such a satisfied meal!

Fried chicken Hat Yai style, priced at $7.80, I consider this as a good value. The fried chicken was crispy and tender, the only fault I have with it that it was a tad salty, however when dipped into the chili sauce that comes with it, it was still acceptable. The best way to describe this would be that it is similar to the Verasamy Road fried chicken wings with chicken rice chili, that pile of sinful oily, salty, spicy taste with each crunch. (4.5/5)

At $4.50, this bowl of bee hoon packs real lot of value! The generous amount of bee hoon and fish slices given will help to ensure one to be really satisfied for lunch! The soup was savory and delicious, I rarely get the milk version but the uncle gave me the wrong one. If you order the one with rice, your soup will be filled this "fish floss" that makes it even nicer!

At $3.20, this is really good deal for a set meal of kway chap. 4 large slices of fish cake, 4 pieces of braised pork, one large chunk of tau pok, decent amount of intestines. The thick broth was well balanced with the clear broth of the kway chap itself that it felt so comfortable to consume. It is run by the uncle for decades in this coffee shop and I am lucky to say that it's quality was still maintained throughout the years! Opened from morning to 4.45pm! (Took some time to try this because the wonton mee next door was too good) #hawkerpedia

$4 prawn mee that came with 3 pork ribs and 2 large slices of prawns. The noodles' texture was amazingly good and chewy. The chili was up to standard and does not disappoint. Furthermore, it's prawn broth/soup was freaking delicious that I even proceeded to finish my colleague's portion!

Price starting from $2.50 it's a steal for an above average bowl of lor mee. Ordered the $3 portions, it came with slices of boiled eggs, small fried pork bits and sliced braised pork. After spamming some vinegar and chili(personal preference), the bowl of kway Teow became a sweet, sour, spicy and savory object to consume. I don't usually have craving for lor mee but this was surely satisfying. However, I've had better ones in Taman jurong and Eunos hawker though!

Chili wasn't very impressive. What makes up for this bowl of noodles were the huge quantity of add ons given. However the mushrooms were not very fresh and one can feel that they have been way over cooked. Will only eat this again if I have no other choice...

After an evening swim, there was a sudden craving for some cantonese porridge, hence went to the classic sin Heng kee which I had ate for over 10 years. Although the standards have dropped over the years, it is still retains the tasty minced pork that I loved since young. Normally I will order 肉碎粥(this one),which isn't on the menu, when I have the feel for something different, I will order the century egg version which is pretty tasty too! The fried shallots along with its cooked to the right temperature porridge, was what kept me coming back again and again! Opened from 7am to 930pm!

Priced at $4, available to upsize for $5 and extra bee hoon for no cost, this was much more worth it compared to my lunch. Two huge mashed shrimps, three crispy ngoh hiong, one mushroom/minced meat mix and one bitter gourd fish paste mix. The chilli/sweet sauce mix given was just the right amount for me to dip my food with! Extremely satisfying dinner!

Fresh meatballs and ngoh hiong. Incredibly spicy chili and sweet sauce. At $5 it is still very much worth it with the large quantity and quantity of food given!

I came here all the way for Bak chor mee but it was already closed. However, the same coffee shop sells the best value duck rice at $4! This is the first time that the rice actually was gone before the meat! Everything else was pretty good and totally enjoyed it!

Located diagonal across utown behind those hdbs, sells a very decent plate of chicken rice that comes with really spicy chili. It's quite worth the 3 bucks as the portion was huge and lots of chicken was given!
