Very generous with the ground peanut. As you bite into the pancakes, the ground peanut is falling off constantly due to the abundance. The pancake has a unique chewiness that I have not found in Man Jian Pancakes elsewhere. At 90cents a piece, this is a real gem and we will all be sorry when it is gone.

I just wonder if it will taste even better if I come earlier in the morning when it’s freshly made….

Ordered their Mixed Pork Noodles for $4.00. Got 3 slices of pork, 2 thinly sliced pieces of liver and 2 pieces of intestines. Even the lard was given after I requested.

Broth was very bland. The meat however was well cleaned and had no funky taste except the intestines had a slight bitter taste from the alkaline wash. Bee hoon was a good portion though. The star of the meal was their special green chilli sauce which was piquant and packed quite a bit of heat.

All in, nothing like what you will get in Malaysia for the same price, whether in terms of ingredients or taste.

Regularly mentioned as having among the best fried chicken wings around, which the Singapore Prime Minister even queued for; this humble stall was established in 1989, and also offers a good range of economical dishes.
.
Their chicken wings are sourced from Brazil, with quality checks to ensure pieces are large and chunky. It's marinated for up to 6 hours in a house blend of oyster sauce, light soy sauce, salt, white pepper, and other secret ingredients, then coated in a light batter of rice flour and water.
.
The deep-frying is temperature controlled, with each piece fried for 7 or 8 minutes, resulting in an even golden brown colour.
.
Incredibly fragrant, with a light crispy crunch to the chicken skin, and warm juicy tender chicken meat, having robust meaty savoury spice salty flavour with the marinade infused. It's not overly greasy, yum.

Nostalgic as my grandparents used to bring me here as a treat; though sadly I'd only rediscovered it a few years back. The stall has been around for over 50 years, and is slated to close in July 2022.
.
Their secret sauce is the star, a tomato and barbecue sauce base that is rich with piquant sweet savoury flavour, deliciously addictive.
.
The medium thick slab of boneless chicken is perfectly grilled, tender with a succulent chew and bold meaty smoky sweet savoury salty flavour.
.
Sides of juicy cucumbers and tomatoes with vegetal sweet flavour, soft baked beans with sweet savoury notes, fluffy crisp English crinkle chips with savoury salty flavour, complete this.

One of the juiciest burgers I have tasted, buns have a fluffy core and a nice toasty crust. Caramelized onions that made it taste even better. $11.50 for a double cheeseburger; don't let its size fool you. The flavour and the satisfaction (filling up stomach space and tastebuds) is worth the money.

I had it on an empty stomach and it was after am intense workout session. Filled me up.

Prices have gone up slightly but it’s still very cheap! I’ve reviewed this before - it’s not say *super* good but it’s something we keep going back to, it’s good enough. I prefer the black sauce one (this is the white one), bc the noodles are a bit alkaliny and the black sauce masks that. We opt for no charsiew bc it’s quite dry. Fried wantons are crispy and boiled wantons are slippery smooth, not very alkaliny. Noodles are springy and very nice when piping hot! Green chilli is a must.

Open only from Thur to Sun, I will only pick this period to come to this market as I must have a bowl of “Tong Sui” from Xi Le Ting 喜乐亭 before I leave. Each bowl only $1.00. So good.

Nostalgic and comforting bowl of Porridge filled with generous ingredient. So shiok.

Hmm I don't get the hype and wait time. This was only marginally better than hawker burgers. Maybe McDonald's standard. The patty, bun, cheese and pickle were so ordinary. There was caramelised onion but very little. The best component was the tater tots.

It’s really good, worth my trip to go down.
Feature the Classic beef cheese burger double patty ($11) and Hand Batter Fish burger double patty ($9.5).
The beef cheese burger, the soft bun served with juicy tender beef patty, slow caramelised onion and homemade sauce.
The hand batter fish burger, the soft bun served with fish patty( very crisp outside while inside juicy), cheese, homemade sauce.
