From the Burpple community

I love how all his ingredients are very clean/light tasting and super refreshing (not too oily or salty). Other versions that I've tried elsewhere are usually too oily or salty for my tastebuds and tend to have those jelat feels afterwards.

One super unique selling point of this shop is that they have a beehoon version instead of the rice. The beehoon has a super fragrant sesame oil aroma and is light tasting. As a person who tend to feel very bloated when i eat too much rice, i am so glad that there is thunder tea beehoon version because now i get to satisfy my 雷茶 cravings and have the whole plate to myself without being overly full by carbs.

Also i love that for their ingredients, they have savoury sweet chye poh and azuki beans as well as winged beans << which is different from other stalls.

The tea soup itself is super aromatic and the basil+mint werent too overpowering. Also, their version has the perfect balance herbaceous minty taste and roasted nutty profile. I love how its slightly savoury too.

Beehoon set: $5/$8
Rice set: $6/$9

The small portion by itself is really super filling and is quite huge. So worth!

The boss is also really friendly and i love the rock music that he blasts. HAHHA super cool personality. The lady boss is also really nice and friendly!

Worth it: 5/5
For the portion, taste and service, this is really worth it!!! I feel that its cheaper than other thunder tea rice stalls out there (ie. Sunny choice cafe version which cost $9.50) and the taste is even better.
Taste: 4.75/5 (minus a little because i felt that the tau pok was a little too overly-fried and hence it was a bit too heard and i couldnt taste the fragrance of the soy)
Overall: 9.75/10

From one of my fav leichafan stalls at Bukit Timah hawker centre, this vegetarian bee hoon was yummy and chokeful of wholesome veges. Priced at $3, the portion size was generous and very filling. For those who enjoy a good bowl of leichafan, their leichafan is quite good too and is worth a try.

I seldom take vegetarian food, attracted by the queue, I decided to give this a shot. The ingredients were fresh. Tried the Thunder tea on its own but the taste was a little too funky for me so I decided to pour into the rice and mix together. It tastes much better when you mix everything together. It’s good, healthy and very filling.

$6 thunder tea rice with really nice and fragance brown rice that is very soft and moist. The fragance comes from the pandan leaves and lemongrass that are cooked together with the brown rice. Had to queue for approximate 10mins but ohwells, the uncle at the stall is quite entertaining. He is kind of “dancing” with the blasting 90’s oldies music at the background while preparing all those ingredients.

When we talk about Lei Cha Fan, the first thing that comes to your mind would probably be the green (tea) soup that is served with your rice. The soup from this stall is light, clean, and easy on the palate.

Most of the time, the bowl of Lei Cha Fan itself is slightly plain, but this stall’s Brown rice Lei Cha FAN (the rice, literally) blew me away. This is the best I have tried!!!

Being a Chinese vegetarian stall, the vegetables are usually fried without garlic and onion. One would expeft the flavours to be (slightly) bland.

Nope. It is one of the most wonderfully flavoured rice I have tried. They don’t use msg btw.

The brown rice has a wonderful aroma from the assortment of aromatic herbs/ spices like lemongrass, ginger etc it was cooked with. It goes very well with the array of vegetables! So, order the brown rice!

It you have friends who have tried but don’t like Lei Cha Fan, or brown rice, bring them here to try this. It will change their mind about thunder tea rice being bland and unexciting.

By the way I tried the Nonya rice dumpling opposite this stall. Soft, overcooked and a tad too wet/ mushy for my liking. Can’t remember the name of the stall, but it was disappointing.

Looking at all this colour just makes me so happy!!! All ingredients on this plate are freshly prepared so they’re never ever soggy or cold and stale. Since I’m not a fan of ikan bilis that most leichas have, I like that this version comes with sweet radish instead. You can also choose between beehoon or brown rice.

Pro tip: While you’re queuing for your food, just pay attention to the boss who takes so much pride in cooking the food. Doesn’t it make you feel happy just seeing someone enjoying the whole process of food preparation? 😌😌
