Never knew Teochew muey can be this yummy until I first dined at Ye Lai Xiang. As the restaurant name goes, “fragrance when night falls”, I wondered was it because of the night rain or the strenuous exercise I did before dinner that made this so yummy! Love today’s lala (clams) - fresh and juicy in light curry; also not forgetting its very crunchy French beans that goes so well with the rice porridge!

The caifan stall with the longest queue. Like caifan at other hawker centres, the popularity makes no sense. Curry was mediocre and meat was minimal.

A case of almost perfect except for one fatal flaw. This common Chinese dish is always generous, but here it's relatively little, even though at nearly $6 it's pricier than most of the menu.

Keng Eng Kee takes on zi char-inspired burgers at this new hawker stall in Bukit Merah. For a fun, fusion dinner, share the generously portioned Chilli Soft Shell Crab Burger ($15) — crispy soft shell crab slathered in sweet, spicy chilli crab sauce, sandwiched between buns. Expect the same wok hei goodness, packed into one big burger bite.

My first meh meal at this zichar stall. Nothing special.

Having had this at KEK Keng Eng Kee Pandan Gardens when they had the Wok Hei Burgers, the Modern Cze Char (“Mod-C”) menu at the now-defunct branch is now available at KEK Keng Eng Kee Seafood under the Wok In Burger brand name, featuring the familiar pastas, burgers (now known as Kung Fu Burgers) and a few rice dishes and sides; some of them new on the menu while some of them being favourites at Pandan Gardens.

This was as good as what I remember it to be; fluffy, buttered and toasted burger buns that were not too heavy, that sticky, aromatic and sweet coffee sauce drenched generously on a pork patty that makes KEK Keng Eng Kee Seafood’s Coffee Pork Ribs so good, and the addition of pickles to for refreshing crunch. A very good attempt on bringing local flavours into a westernized item without being overly pretentious, retaining both elements well. The burgers are also absolutely value-for-money here; $9.80 nett with fries, coleslaw and water chestnut drink on the side — fries being crisp and well-seasoned with salt, while the coleslaw comes not too milky whilst adding apples for a crunch. Something I would crave for again!


$13.90 | Hidden gem in a corner of Bukit Merah. The portion is quite generous. BBQ pulled pork is tender and flavourful. Don’t forget to ask for maple syrup! 🍯

It is introduced with the novel idea of incorporating local zhi char dishes into Western style burgers.

Say “Hello” to Chilli Soft Shell Crab Burger, Salted Egg Pork Burger, Coffee Pork Burger, Pai Gu Wan Burger and the likes.

Am not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but it came exactly how one would expect it to be like – deep fried soft shell crab drizzled with sweet, slightly spicy chilli crab sauce and sandwiched between burger buns.


The only place I know selling this. Quite interesting. It's oily and the flavour is in the oil.

Good Morning, this time we’re exploring Ghim moh food market, starting our day with a simple Chinese Teo chew dish, Singapore Carrot Cake.
Ghim moh Carrot cake is one of best. The scrambled eggs and diced radish cakes are perfectly coated with sweet dark soy sauce, abundance of chye poh, delivering a good balance of sweet and salty nuances. The stall uses 100% vegetable oil, a healthier alternative!
