✨Lor Mee✨
I went for the basic yellow noodles, and to my surprise, there was no alkaline taste at all! I like how they were really generous with the pork slices and the fried minced meatballs too! The pork slices were slightly too fat for my liking, but the minced meatballs were so enjoyable🤤 It has a little QQ taste, and it was still crispy after being in the gravy for a long time. However, the gravy is slightly more watery than usual, hence it felt more like a sauce than a gravy, but the flavour and ingredients taste just as delicious!

💰: $3

V glad that this gem of an eating place is just around the corner of my house. Their menu is extensive - they don’t just sell hot dogs! I got their signature chicken frank and omg they did not disappoint. Their chilli con carne is a bit on the spicy level so beware! Gonna try their burgers and western dishes next!

滋补养生小火锅 (Nourishing Mini Hotpot)

⭐ 4/5 ⭐
🍴With a long queue of 15 people even before the 9am opening time, we knew this was a must try. After 45 mins, we dived into the bak chor mee with high expectations and glad that it did not disappoint.

The winning elements were first, the mix of pork lard, vinegar, and chilli created a moreish sauce that coated the noodles well, and second their generous serving of perfectly cooked liver slices and soft minced pork pieces. Also liked the self-service of fresh and crunchy spring onions, chilli slices, and extra vinegar.

On the sauce and ingredients alone, this would be a 4.5-5 ⭐ . The one letdown was the noodles that though springy, was too starchy. The accompanying pork soup was tasty but not particularly noteworthy. Overall, would eat this again if in the area. We'd say it's worth a 30+mins queue (but not an hour), especially if you have the time to spare.

Tasty and tender frog meat cooked in medium-mild spiciness, thick, gooey and savoury sauce. Chilli padi can be found so be careful not to accidentally bite the seeds. Haha.😅
I like how the meat is soft, chewy and easily detached from the bone. Apart from that, the sauce is just normal and lack fragrance but paired it with plain porridge, certainly makes it more yummy.
The more frog you order, the cheaper it is in overall pricing.

Smooth, light savouriness with a hint of sesame oil. Texture is great. Add sauce to improve taste.

Been a while we had dried chilli frog with porridge.🐸😆 Lazy to travel far so we had it nearer to us which is in the west.

Hidden gem western food.

Needed to wait 40+ mins for it.

Ordered at 6.30pm on a weekday, and chicken cutlet sold out already.

Lots of people waiting for takeaway, the macik damn busy.

Really old school type western food.

The skin of the chicken chop is crispy.

Chicken chop is really good. Can't imagine how their chicken cutlet can be.

Really good according to the wife. Easily one of the best vegetarian bak kut teh.

Saw that this ulu place is packed with diners on a weekday night. Most tables having the claypot rice.

This place feels like a genuine hidden gem for vegetarians.

My wife expects me to travel down from punggol to get this for her again.

[Tien Lai Rice Stall]
Location: Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre (Near Lakeside)

Previously went around 11am and they ran out of charsiew so now I’m back here again!

🍴& 💵:
Charsiew Siobak Rice + Charsiew ($3.50 + $1) 🙆🏻‍♀️ - Not trying to be funny but the star of this plate is the RICE Hahaha! The rice was SUPER FRAGRANT as though I was eating fried rice. Felt like they used overnight rice because it was 粒粒分明 (every grain was well separated(?) haha. Just not the moist kind of rice) Definitely not the usual white rice from rice cooker. I’m on a Low carb diet but I finished all the rice because it was just so good!
And I like the chilli too. It was spicy enough with the slight sourness.

Okay to the main point which is the taste of the meat. The charsiew has the nice burnt charcoal taste but the meat was pretty lean. Some pieces were quite dry. No wonder they pasted the healthier choice logo for the charsiew. Lean = Healthy lol. As for the roasted pork, it was better because it was fattier. But wish that the skin can be slightly thicker so that it will be crunchier and have more bite to it.

Kinda queued 15mins for it.

“The white rice is superb! LOL”

There are several Chicken Rice stalls at Blk 505 Jurong West Food Centre while I personally feel that Soh Kee Cooked Food stand out from the crowd.

Listed in the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2021 Bib Gourmand, not the usual Chicken Rice stall as they specialise with Chicken with Porridge set. Price from $3.50, it comes with a huge bowl of Porridge accompanied with tender and juicy Steamed Chicken. What I usually order is the chicken thigh ($4.50 per set) as featured.

Ideal for hunger pangs at ungodly hours, Takagi Ramen has been my family’s go-to for quite some time - an option whenever we are seeking a quick and decent ramen fix. At $8.90, my order of Butashoga Ramen was a competent bowl of Tonkotsu Noodle soup. Apart from the full-flavoured base, the affordable and hearty pick comes with a small heap of ginger-braised pulled pork, braised bamboo shoots, and spring onions. The sweet meaty flavour from the pork enhancing the creamy, already-rich, and lip-smacking broth. The thin noodles were a little on the softer side in my opinion but still slurp-able and the cherry on top was adding a seasoned ramen egg for an extra dollar.
