This was so so tasty! We ordered the Seafood Soup and the Crayfish Seafood Soup. There was a subtle taste difference and I prefer the crayfish version. No regrets ordering the biggest bowl! 😆

Have been to old airport countless time, and have known the existence of salt for a long time, but somehow I just couldn't bring myself to try it because it is slightly expensive / lunch buddy doesn't wana share chicken chop w me / one of us having sore throat / it was sold out by the time my parents were there to dabao food back for me. Finallly tried it over the long PH weekend! Ordered 2 plates of set 10 (sous vide grilled chicken with garlic fried rice) at $7.30/plate. You have the option to add on an egg for 70cents/egg but we declined. First impression= the garlic fried rice wasn't served hot. It was room temperature at best, perhaps because it was cooked in batches. The sous vide grilled chicken however was hot out on the plate. The chicken skin was perfectly grilled till I had no qualms eating the chicken skin! The chicken meat itself was also juicy and not dry! Parents who tried it too had good reviews for the sous vide grilled chicken! 😄 #burpple #burpplesg #salt #oldairport #saltoldairport #grilledchicken #sousvidegrilledchicken #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg #whatsgoodhere #foodtrails #sgfoodies #sgeats

After reading Wong Ah Yoke's article in Straits Times on his Top 5 kway chup in Singapore, and seeing my favorite kway chup listed as No 2 in his list, I was very curious to taste his favorite kway chup. That led me to Old Airport Road with @kenwashio who queued 30 mins for this plate pictured here.

I know why people love this, and I could understand why some don't. The offals here had the perfect texture. They're velvety, springy, and retains enough bite. It's clean tasting, yet retaining some of the inner linings that gave these offals their distinctive taste. Nevertheless, others may find the braising sauce too mild, with the gravy of the kway lacking in herby tastes. I'm happy with all of the above, I can appreciate both light or heavy sauces. Overall it's very good, but if I've to nitpick, the only thing I didn't like was the chilli which felt too watery and uni-dimensional.
🔸
Try it and let me know what you think of this? But surely, I still love the AMK kway chup, as my number 1.

So, ta da!! The Hakka noodles tossed in pork oil was the able foundation for the meats. The char siew was nice and fatty (probably too fat for most, but i did ask for it) and a surprisingly disappointing roast pork.
It’s not the usual standard but the noodles made up for it, although now I kinda wish I had the patience to queue for the fish soup.
Now I must complete my Mission for this long weekend: Cendol, prata, briyani and anything with lots of cockles or pork lard. PS: carbs consumed during a public holiday or vacation doesn’t count. .

Heard about the Char Siew and Roasted Pork at Roast Paradise is another must-try.
.
Ordered 100g of Char Siew and Roasted Pork to share. Boy oh boy - it was so good! The Char Siew was well-seasoned and caramelised - and a little sweater than the other Char Siews that I’ve had. The meat was tender and I particularly liked the charred edge. And if like those Char Siew from Fook Kin - you will like these from Roast Paradise.
.
The Roast Pork was OK - nothing to shout about - but did it went well when eaten with the slightly tangy mustard on the side.
.
Disappointed they they ran out of noodles though - heard that it’s pretty good too - but I guess I will never know unless I come back again! Oh well...maybe next time!!

He claims that Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee serves one of the best Lor Mee in town. Unfortunately it was closed. So, we did the next best thing - we had Xiang Ji Lor Mee - that was located at the same Hawker Centre - instead.
.
Xiang Ji Lor Mee came with generous topping of fried fish flakes and fish chunks, pork belly slices, Ngor Hiang, half of an hard boiled eggs, bean sprouts, chopped red chillies and sambal chili which gave that added heat to the dish, minced garlic and garnished with Chinese parsley. And although I didn’t get to try Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee - Xiang Ji Lor Mee did not disappoint at all. The sauce was thick, gooey and flavourful - I added a little more vinegar for a better balance of that vinegary and spiciness in the sauce. And it was so good that I finished up all that sauce.
.
So if Xiang Ji Lor Mee is already that good - at least to me - then I gotta come back again to try Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee - and when I do, they had better not be closed...!!

Tried the famous charsiew here. Certain part of the meat was too fatty. The lean part of the meat was tender. However a large amount of the char siew was burnt giving it a very bitter taste. Would prefer if they burnt it less.

Still feel this is the best wanton mee at old airport road.

The chilli compliments the noodles so well.

And the overflow of fried onions.

👍👍

I was often out of luck when I visited! I wanted the char siew and roast pork on Hakka noodles, and wasn't disappointed! In a way it was like a taste of home, with the wide slippery noodles coated with fragrant oil and white pepper, just like my auntie used to make at home! (My auntie is of Hakka descent too, so maybe that's why it's similar?)
Of course the meat was da bomb. Herbal with a tinge of sweetness, and the crispy crunchy skin of the roast pork was just ummmhh.
Sooo satisfying!
