Vermicelli with Grilled Pork and Spring Roll ($9.50)
.
Never a fan of vietnamese food but @mrspho changed my opinion. This bowl of dry vermicelli is full of flavour with its sweet and mildly spicy sauce poured and mixed into the bowl. The pork slices were a tad dry but the spring rolls were very crispy with an ultra thin skin and lots of meat in it.

I’m gonna be honest, I’m kinda addicted to soya sauce chicken. So it really was kinda inevitable that as I was walking down Bugis with an empty stomach, I would end up eating Choo Chiang’s magnificent meats. According to the assorted newspaper clippings, they used to be located in Yishun, so I suspect that they could very well be the long lost roast meats stall I used to frequent a lifetime ago.

The soya sauce chicken was tender, juicy and terrifically tasty. The thick sauce was healthily herbal and full of savory flavors, and there’s a generous amount of marvelous meat to go around. The roast pork was another winner, with its well cooked fat and thoroughly seasoned meat. Of course, the crackling was the main event, and it was unarguably stellar. Crunchy and utterly smashing, when you bite into a slice of siew yoke, everyone within a five meter radius is gonna know about it.

The char siew could give all the other roast meats stalls out there a hell of a run for their money, save for the fact that the guy swinging the cleaver has the aim of a bad guy in an 80’s action movie. The superb slices of char siew are very unevenly sliced, one slice would be paper thin while the next would be supremely chunky. Of course, everyone knows that when you slice char siew too thin, the texture is ruined.

Fortunately, there were a few joyously thick slices of char siew, and I can confirm that they are truly tender and incredibly moist. The mildly sweet and stunningly savory seasoning lathered onto the meat pre roasting has thoroughly infused every last molecule of meat, and every bite was a truly sapid sensation.

Only problem is that this three meat combo will set you back by a whopping $9.50, so expect your wallet to get absolutely pounded. While there’s far better value out there, Choo Chiang’s meats have me firmly aboard the taste train to Flavortown.

Unfortunately this wasn’t presented in the pineapple like some other thai places but still tasted really good. The fried rice had a nice wokhei to it and it was quite a generous portion. It was laced with bits of egg, 4 decently sized prawns and chunks of pineapple. However, to me it lacked the distinct color and sweetness that comes from the pineapple but still not bad.

You get ALOT of soup for $10 and they don’t skimp on the ingredients as well with squid, prawns and mushrooms. I would say you could get 5-6 bowls of soup out from this pot. I ordered the thick version and I’m guessing it differs from the clear version by adding coconut milk/cream which you can taste from the soup. The coconut milk/cream mellows out the tomyum flavor slightly but you still get the acidic and spicy hits. Really flavorful and would definitely order this again. They only accept reservations from Mon-Thurs!!

** Quick dinner while walking around Bugis. This is my first time trying Jinjja Chicken so I decided to order the mix wings set (soy & spicy flavor). To be honest, the wings were pretty underwhelming as the sauce was not evenly coated and the wings were not crispy either. Both are criteria I’d deem as pass/fail for Korean fried chicken. I also thought the spicy sauce wasn’t flavorful enough and surprisingly enough, the soy flavor were much tastier this time round.

This stall only sells curry noodles. All you need to do when ordering is to inform the auntie what noodles you want. This stall is very generous with their ingredients, which include tau pok, potato, beansprouts and pig skin!

Favorite Yong Tau Foo from Lucky Plaza!
As great as ever, my favourites are the mushrooms and meatballs. This meal will always be a 10/10 for me.
