📍Jin Hua sliced fish bee hoon stall at maxwell

This is my second time eating Jin Hua’s fis soup although my original intention was to try other stalls. But sadly all the other stalls that i wanted to try were still closed / not sure why they were closed for the day of my visit. This shop only starts operation at 11am. Even though a few customers enquired at 1050am+ they refused to start serving till it was almost 11am. When they officially started operation, it took quite a while for the queue to move as they took about 10mins for 2 order as there was only one person taking orders and prepping cooking the ingredients. (Other person was still busy slicing fish and frying fish). The long line of queue soon formed minutes after 11am.

My typical order here is the fried fish thick beehoon soup with added milk (small howl for $4.50). Super love the XO taste in the soup and fried fish went super well with their chilli sauce mix which interestingly had both red and green chillies!

Small bowl has about 4 slices of fried fish, but enough for me since there is so many other good food to try at Maxwell too!

📍Xing Xing Ondeh Ondeh # 01-31 from maxwell hawker

Have been wanting to try the ondeh ondeh and the steamed tapioca from Xing Xing for the longest time since 2015! But everytime when i reach during weekday 12+ lunch hour it would have closed or was sold out. And most of my other visits to maxwell are only at dinner hours.

Thought i will have luck this time but nope they arent selling ondeh ondeh and steamed tapioca cake until 2 weeks from now (me has no idea why)!

Ended up getting the baked tapioca ($1 for a single piece). It isnt something which i like and it felt too heavy/dense for me.

Shall try again at my next visit and hope i will have better luck the next time!

(Side PSA: taste of jiang nan, the famous dintaifung style porkchop fried rice is closed now. Paper notice at the stall indicates “有事回国” so no need to go down to find the stall anytime soon! )

A nondescript stall with the most unassuming yellow signboard, they make among the best homey dumplings I’ve ever had in a hawker centre. Neatly sealed in those yellow wanton wrappers our mamas use at home, their dumplings (and wantons but dumplings especially) are stuffed with lean minced meat and prawns, no-fillers, and super well-seasoned. Dip those beauts in some of their punchy homemade chilli sauce — WEEEEEW. Stunning. They also make some bombass fuzhou fishballs that are mega qq and juicy. Now I’m not gonna call these the best craziest yummiest ones out there, but it’s very comforting and homey to me and I’ve never once dined at Maxwell without ordering from them. Besides, the old couple manning the store are super adorable 🥰

This was average, it was thick and chewy but I would prefer if it was just a tad softer. Fillings were pretty standard, coco was juicy and peanut was crunchy. I wouldn’t mind repurchasing if I happened to walk past, but if I’m in the area I would rather go to Hong Lim / Chinatown Complex.

I didn't plan to eat this but because the stall I wanted to go to is not open so I decided to try out this stall. If you like spinach soup, you should try this. They gave one whole bunch of spinach...chew until I tired. Haha!😅 The prawns are very fresh, the soup taste like home-cooked soup. 有妈妈的味道 ☺️


Pretty good char kwey Teow from a stall in the middle row with a yellow signboard that says fried kwey Teow, fried Hokkien mee , fried oysters and carrot cake .

Good moisture and charredness without being too greasy and great that it was not too sweet at all . Would be even better if fresh prawns are used.

Ask for more chilli to zing things up a bit .
