Soufflé pancakes elsewhere would all be indignant to share their name with this soggy excuse of a pancake. You can tell from the appearance that it wasn't well cooked, and true enough, it tasted like bread that's been left in liquid for an hour. Utterly gross.

Hidden within the Tai Sun Coffeeshop at Kitchener Complex, those who do not work in this area have probably never heard of this fish soup. However, those who do know are in the non-stop queue. While it might look long, it moves fast (15 minutes) and the Mixed Sliced Fish Bee Hoon ($5) is worth the wait. The soup is well-balanced and the fish is very fresh, but the rockstar is has to be the fried egg bits!

Ordered all the flavors of the balls with peanut soup to try. My favourite is the peanut and matcha. Peanut flavor is sweet yet salty, matcha is very fragrant. If you love matcha, it is a must try.

For $4, it’s the best lor mee I’ve ever had. Plenty of ingredients but the noodles portion is pretty average. Do opt for the $5 bowl for a bigger portion and more ingredients.

Ordered the following: $11.88 for Baileys cold brew. $9.30 for Bao zi. $8.80 for Paddlepop cheesecake. $15.40 for pandan pancakes... the prices here are a bit steep. But i guess you are paying for the artwork of the old school desserts as well. The old school desserts are pretty unique and delicious. The pandan pancakes are fluffy but it is not what i would order again. My favourite item is the Baileys cold brew.

Super traditional Chinese steamboat and chicken rice in the basement of golden mile! Affordable and homely!

Food was mediocre. Luckily there was a one for one else it prob wouldn't be worth it. Zero service. I wasnt expecting any but a smile on the faces of the waiter and waitress will be nice. Waitress took the order and looked grumpy. Won't return again if i can help it.

Min $6.00 per bowl. Available in $8.00 and $10.00 too.
Location: Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle, Blk 466 Crawford Land, #01-12, Singapore 109466

Delicious homemade rainbow mee hoon kueh and ban mian. A hidden gem at the fringe of CBD.

In 7 out of 10 discussions with my parents on where to eat, the name of this eatery is brought up.
Sprawling across a few units in the basement of the Golden Mile Tower, “Golden Mile Thien Kee Steamboat” is the perfect place to tackle cravings for Hainanese chicken rice, steamboat, “zi char” and freshly-grilled satay in one fell swoop. A family-run establishment, the friendly and vigilant bosses can always be seen hovering, ready to lend a hand where needed.
The chicken of their chicken rice is decent but it is the rice that I really like. It is on the oily side but it sure is tasty. In fact, I’m happy to spam it with their lip-smacking, slightly salty chilli sauce and have it just like that.
They do their steamboat the traditional way. So forget about selecting a broth because there is only a standard clear one. As for the ingredients, there is no choice involved. Only elimination. Unless you tell them what to leave out, the standard mixed plate of prawns, sliced fish, sea cucumber, fish maw, sliced pork, pig’s liver and cockles will land on your table. Ditto a plate piled with Chinese cabbage and a small bowl with a raw egg still in its shell. One such set is suitable for two, so a party of four should double it. Of course, nothing complements the ingredients cooked in the steamboat better than the chicken rice chilli dip.
We like to supplement our meal by getting on a stirfried vegetable from the “zi char” menu. Sometimes, an omelette too.
Although we didn’t order on our recent visit, this eatery also serves satay that we find tasty. Their grilled meats are consistently well-marinated and tender.


Does Tai Hwa come in as Singapore’s #1 in BCM?

Tai Hwa’s rendition hits it pretty spot on. Sweetness from stewed mushrooms, heat and tartness from chilli and black vinegar respectively and noodles served with a Q. Topping it off, a dried sole fish for the crispy element.

Is it worth the wait and heat? Umm, if I’d 1.5 hours of free time- maybe.
