Chicken wing and fish paste beancurd skin. A rare economical beehoon supper spot. Not my first time having the wing. It's juicy but quite bland. The fish paste beancurd skin is rare that's why I ordered it. It's not bad.

Quipped that the laska was similar to Roxy laksa, the family’s benchmark for the best laska in SG. The laksa connoisseur of the family, my dad who had way too many bowls of laska in his hay-days, said there were difference but this was a very good bowl of laksa. While acknowledging the laksa connoisseur’s verdict, I reminded him that the snaking queue (we queued 40 minutes) might find this the best laksa in Singapore 😬

One of the best, filled with generous peanuts. I am the lucky one who managed to grab these in time before they are sold out before 11am.

This stall only has roast chicken. Luckily, although I'm a firm believer that chicken rice should be white, I came for their roast chicken. Unfortunately, the bird was quite disappointing. It's not unlike most roast chicken. Shout out to the rice though. Very fragrant.

Sudden crave for Laksa. Here I am at Tanglin Halt Market to "dabao" Wei Yi Laksa & Prawn Noodle for lunch.

From a fruit stall facing outside. It's Thai coconut, but the texture was off because the stallholder initially made me a coconut juice, then realised I wanted milkshake and adapted it.

Soya bean milk and grass jelly. Too sweet. But also shiok. Haha.

This old school bakery at Tanglin Halt was something I’d traveled from the East for- a paltry effort compared to the coming 70 year old baker owner’s daily efforts to bake an assortment of bread and cakes with his wife.
I preferred the cakes here, for those moist sponge with smooth buttercream was something my home baked version couldn’t triumph. Also the orange flavouring chiffon cake was delightful too.
While I am glad uncle gets to retire once the community around Tanglin Halt goes into our history books for good- what a loss of heritage it would be should these old school bakeries gradually dwindle and vanish one day.

P.S: look at that old school plastic bread tray!

My last meal outside before lockdown 2.0 and it's disappointing. I can't believe I waited all these years to try this, nor can I believe it's so popular. Char siew was like tree bark and noodles forgettable. Only wantons were decent.

One way to increase my happiness level quickly is to give me a plate of chicken cutlet from No. 1 Western Food. This hawker stall serves the best fried chicken cutlet that comes with a thin, ultra-crispy breadcrumb coating and tender, juicy meat. The cutlet, fries, baked beans and sliced tomatoes are served with an irresistible special savoury-sweet sauce with onions that goes so well with everything and keeps me coming back (every weekend!) for more.
