I finally caught this famous stall open. Unfortunately, even though it's a decent plate of duck rice, it's not on the level of the hype. I'd say only the sauce was special.

Awesome savoury broth.
Satisfying indeed.

Sometimes you just want a good simple bowl of handmade noodles, and this is one to go for when you're around the area. For this Dumplings Mee Hoon Kueh ($3.50) the soup itself is probably the best part, and they use fish bones to get that flavourful broth. The kueh itself is fantastic, as it has a good bite and you don't really taste the dough. Dumplings itself has a good bite, and has pretty sizable amount of filling!

Friendly staff and kaya toast set with soy bean milk was delicious! Eggs were perfect, toast was nice and crunchy, organic soy milk tasted lovely and non-commercial!

Decided to queue for this stall because all other stalls that I wanted to try are closed on Tuesdays. I am pleasantly surprised by how gooood this bowl of fish soup is and yet didn’t hear much about this stall when reading through “best food in whampoa” or “best fish soup in Singapore” articles. The white beehoon itself is very smooth and a tiny bit smaller than the usual ones, but of course, the star has to be the fish. We both prefer the fried fish— fried till crispy outside yet the meat is tender (and not mushy). The white fish is nothing special but still enjoyable. Added milk to the soup to get a more creamy taste profile and I’m so happy that the milk doesn’t overpower the original soup flavour. This is one of the best fish soup I’ve tried because each component is done well. What a hidden gem!

Came across New Ubin on Grab and noted they have Lamb on their menu. Decided to give it a try as it’s rare to be able to find Lamb on the menu of Grab’s list of merchants.

They did a fabulous job in having it done just right - medium, where it’s browned on the outside and pink inside. The sea salt flakes were packed separately in a container, so you can sprinkle the amount that you’d prefer. 👍👍👍

4⭐ Ending the dinner with a sweet note. The 龟苓膏 is authentic as the herbal smell is very strong. The other desserts are equally good.
