Fried Dried Hor Fun [$4]

The Fried Dried Hor Fun is one of the most popular dishes here and I totally get why! It's a very simple looking dish studded with just vegetables, a few slices of mock fishcakes and mock meat, but done really well - fragrant, fried thoroughly and not greasy. What won us over was definitely the wok hei (not extremely strong but was enjoyable to have), something I don't think is as common in vegetarian dishes. Take note that they serve this with eggs so be sure to inform the chef if you don’t want any.

Tom Yum Mee Soup [$5]

Think they use the usual vegetarian tom yum paste for the soup here but no complaints from us because they’re very generous with it! The appetising base is flavourful, a teeny bit spicy with a strong kick of sourness. Lots of ingredients in this - enoki mushrooms, cabbage, beancurd skin, mock fishcakes and mock meat. Got mine with thick bee hoon, but the kway teow they use here is super silky smooth, will definitely get that instead next time!

Deep Fried Mushroom in Sweet and Sour Sauce [$7]

A whole plate of crunchy deep fried oyster mushrooms in a coating of sticky sweet and sour sauce - these were was soooo addictive, especially the smaller bits of fried batter hidden underneath. They use a thicker batter here but the crunch that comes along with it redeems it all! I don’t usually go for sweet and sour items but this was nicely balanced and is one of my family's must orders.

Jing Yi is a popular vegetarian zi char style stall, so be prepared to wait, (we came at 5pm for dinner but the wait was still around half an hour) especially every 1st and 15th of the lunar calendar. Most vegetarian stalls in the area close by the evening, so this here is a great choice for late lunches and dinners. Prices are kind to the wallet too!

It has been years since I had this vegetarian tom yum fried rice.

So far, hands down the best vegetarian zichar I've had. In fact, it opened me up to a world of vegetarian dining options. Expect Long waiting times. Located at the same Kopitiam as Ah Kow Bak Chor mee. #burpple

thai milk tea x salted caramel ice cream ($6.50 for 2 waffles and 1 scoop) @ beans & cream

ice cream craving but we need not venture far; thai milk tea x salted caramel - just when you thought the ice cream was going to be too sweet for your taste, it turn out really fine and balanced, which is why is always enjoyable at beans & cream. chilly weather also means we can sit outside and enjoy ice cream sloooowly.

Hot Claypot Noodles + Salted Egg Yolk Diced Chicken For 2pax

Top: Claypot noodles (medium size: $10) This item is not shown on the menu.. the lady at counter mentioned that some items that are not stated in the menu can be checked with her directly.

Bottom: Salted egg yolk diced chicken (small size : $10) the egg yolk sauce is flavourful and every pcs of the diced crispy chicken is coated with that sauce.. 👍

Hidden Gem

Don't confuse this with Milk & Honey Frozen Yogurt - this is Milk & Honey Gelato, with only 2 outlets: Bukit Batok (HomeTeamNS) & Bedok.

Service was a tad bit slow, but the Quaffles (+$3 for half, +$5 for whole) & delicious ice cream more than made up for it. As with most gelato places, you can try flavours before you commit to buying them - I had the Shy Green Nut (pistachio) & Earl Grey Bergamot. Strong flavours, & there were actual nutty bits in the former! Will definitely be back; already have a loyalty card in my wallet, ready to be used.

Plain Pratha

Best pratha if you like soft & doughey just like mey 😁👍🏼😉😃😄😜🍴packet pratha still good! 😊☺️ $1 each! Oh yes, the curry is thick & refreshing with a little herb tanginess! 👅💦💦

Great Place!

Mooks Thai Bistro has 2 outlets - I dined at the Bukit Gombak one.

The minced meat was too salty, but the rest of our dishes were pretty good. Comfortable ambience, family-friendly place, good price point, & with ample parking.

carbs, meat, heat

order the 干捞面 here and you will be rewarded with a large bowl of handmade noodles, 2 fuzhou fishballs, 2 fried dumplings and a scoop of salty, oily minced meat. tip: you can ask for more minced meat or ask to change the fishballs/dumplings. really, though, the star is the noodle. mixed with the oily sauce and extra red chili, each bite is a savoury, oily delight. and at only $3.50 it's something you can eat everyday.
but pls don't la it's not the healthiest of foods (you need your 2+2 fruit and veg and this provides none 😶)

Salted Caramel, Whisky Espresso Ice Cream with Waffles

Let's just say that I don't end up at this part of the island much, so whenever I do I like to end up here for a little sweet treat.

Both scoops were smooth and creamy — the Salted Caramel carries a balanced tinge of sweetness and saltiness while the Whiskey Espresso Cream despite not being quite as boozy as I wanted it to be did carry a nice hint of caffeinated flavour with a light touch of whiskey. Waffles have improved ever since my last visit but still needs a bit more improvement — while it carries a hint of buttermilk fragrance, the waffles are still pretty much on the soft side and lacking of a crisp crust.

Fried Carrot Cake

Fried carrot cake is also known as "chai tau kway". Not the usual sweet dessert, but a kind of Chinese steamed carrot rice cake.
