I rate this as one of the best fried hokkien mee i’ve tried in Singapore so far. The noodles are so flavourful with a strong wok hei taste & the sambal chilli is so good that the whole dish is elevated to ‘must try’ category!

My favorite stall in Balestier food center. Thank God they were opened when I reached at 10+am, way before lunch hour!

I had initially ordered it because of the aesthetics, but it proved to be not only pleasing to the eye, but also to my tastebuds.
The chicken breast is cooked sous vide and was really tender. The homemade mashed potatoes had a nice smooth consistency and was far from plain tasting, especially when paired with the many accompaniments such as the butter corn and roasted hazelnuts, which also provided a nice crunch contrasting the smooth texture of the mash.

My sis-in-law Joanne had picked up a box of these chicken pies from a shop near her home. Although this place that’s located at 603 Balestier Road is better known for “tau sar piah” (I‘m not really into them personally), their chicken pie won me over.
It has a puff pastry that’s not too thick and a filling that did the most important thing - it filled the space within the crust. I’m sure you know that’s not usually the case with chicken pies sold at most places unfortunately. Taste-wise, it also passed the test. The soft shredded pieces of chicken had been cooked in some kind of a light creamy sauce and came nicely seasoned too.

Popular choice for tourists but this was still one for us to dine in comfort for the night. The fish maw soup with crabmeat was also perfect for the cold night. The portion for their rice seemed to have shrunk but it was tasty nonetheless.

Taro Big Bowl is its name, and fancy dessert is its game.

($11.50) For this individual serving of bento set with drink.
Fluffy pearl rice, tender soft braised pork bits, homestyle vegetables, egg and soup.
Highly recommended!

XO Sliced Fish Bee Hoon ($9) from Hong Kong Street Chun Tat Kee located at a coffeeshop along Holland Drive (sorry I can't find the right geotag).

My jaw dropped when the staff came with whole bottle of XO Cognac and poured an overflowing spoonful of that aromatic alcohol into the hot bowl of fish soup. 😍 I enjoyed that sweet burnt aftertaste and those chunky yet tender sliced fish.

Well, be prepared for some friendly attention as the strong liquor smell soared through tables away. 😅

This Tau Sar Piah is definitely a cut above the rest! The pastry itself is buttery, flaky and a bit crispy kind. There are 2 flavors available - sweet (with sesame) and salty (w/out sesame). Their fillings is pretty average but decent. (S$0.80 each)

Ordered the Ultimate Beef Yard Burger ($27.90) and Signature BBQ Pork Ribs ($24.90). Decent cafe food with nice hipster vibes and definitely very worth it with Burpple’s 1-for-1!! Onsen egg and crisp thick cut fries made up for the slightly dry wagyu beef patty and pork ribs could have been more tender but were saved by a substantial refreshing side salad of mixed greens, pineapple, green apple and baby potatoes. Nice place and prices are nett, but may not go back without the deal haha.

It’s value for money! 1/2 a chicken which give you the flexibility to mix between 2 type of chicken - roast and Hainanese white which I thought it was quite good that you get the best of both world for just $19? Portion is almost as good as 1 whole chicken for some other place. But texture of chicken wise was not as smooth and tender as some of the better ones which I find it a bit disappointing. The breast portion was a bit dry and rough and the thigh portion could be done smoother and softer. But minimally the chilli and ginger sauce was pretty good.

A pretty hidden and unpretentious spot around Whampoa that serves authentic Taiwanese fare. While we felt that the Vermicelli with Pork Chitterlings was a more representative item here, the House Special Braised Pork Rice comes with enough sauce and a good load of chunky bits of tender, braised pork belly for a balanced bite amidst the melty meat. The preserved vegetables helps to cut through the savouriness and meatiness of the dish; the braised egg was done a little solid and served lukewarm – could have been better if served at a warmer temperature.
