This unassuming stall offers a range of zi char dishes, alongside a traditional fish soup. You have a choice of adding XO (extra old) brandy or not, the default is without alcohol.
If you opt for the non-alcoholic version, the broth remains decently rich, with primary notes of the white pepper, black pepper, ginger, and evaporated milk, being milky sweet savoury peppery spice in taste.
The long silky smooth rice vermicelli noodles carry mild grainy sweet notes, while the crunchy chye sim / chinese flowering cabbage lends vegetal sweet flavour.
The medium fillets of boneless toman / snakehead fish are chunky and soft, with meaty sweet salty savoury flavour. I like to add chopped red chili for a spicy kick.

The skin of the xiao long bao was delicate fine and almost translucent, filled with well-marinated minced pork and pork broth. The pork broth was subtle in its flavours with a hint of sweetness ใ€‹$6 / 5 pcs

The Shanghai spring roll was served crispy, crunchy and golden brown on the outside, moist and well-cooked with braised cabbage inside ใ€‹$7.20 / 6 pcs

A small Chinese restaurant hidden under an HDB block in Ang Mo Kio that serves pretty good Chinese dishes. Unlike the usual Chinese restaurant, they have limited seatings and menu but are good enough to make you walk out with a satisfied belly. We went ahead to order some of their signature/recommended items such as xiao long bao, pan-fried buns and spring rolls.

The pan-fried buns (็”Ÿ็…ŽๅŒ…) are my favourite! Pan-fried buns have been a Shanghainese staple that differs from the traditional version of xiao long bao where it holds more soup and is fried upside down - fluffy on top and crispy at the bottom ใ€‹$6 / 4 pcs

Our favourite pet friendly place

This chicken rice stall is considered much unique as they offered their chicken rice in different flavours.

Lemon is one of them, comes with crispy chicken meat in lemon sauce. Every plate will be paired with achar, cucumber and a bowl of soup.

I pickedย the ๐—ฆ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ with brown rice as the base. I liked the salmon cubes, which were fresh and tender. My three sides were broccoli, long beans and scrambled egg. The egg was a disappointment as it was lumpy and not creamy at all.ย 

To sum up, the bowls are decent and at this price point, you shouldn't be expecting too much. The specialty at @booncafe.sg is the Curry Chicken with Country Loaf ($6), which I saw someone at the next table having. The portion looked huge, so perhaps that's a better choice than the bowls.

Hidden within ITE College Central is Boon Cafe, a minimalist cafe serving All Day Breakfast, Western cuisine, Sandwiches and Build Your Own Bowls to the staff and student population. The best part is, everyย item is under $10. Visitors need to pay $0.50 extra per pax for every order.

My makan buddy chose the ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ with pasta as the base and beef as the protein. The thin slices of beef reminded me of Chinese la mian, a bit tough and a bit sinewy, so they weren't the most enjoyable. The spicy pasta and egg roll stood out, while the kimchi and broccoli were decent.

Seeing a steady stream of customers at Ho-Bee Roasted Food, I joined in the queue as well. Since many of them ordered the ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐——๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ธ, I chose that as well.

The meat was tender and juicy, but the glistening skin wasn't as crispy as I'd hoped it was. The achar on the side was surprisingly good, its crunchy and sweet-sour profile providing both a textural and flavour contrast.

Overall it was pretty decent, if a little too oily. I've had better roasted ducks before, so I don't understand the long queues at this stall.

๐Ÿ’ฐ $14 per box of 4 on Pickupp, +$1.70 per sea salt maple bombo
๐Ÿค‘ codeใ€ŠBREADINOSAURใ€‹for $5 off on Pickupp

Got this via Pickupp in a box of 4! Never tried @thefatkidbakery 's bombos before, I found this flavour pretty interesting.

The bombo is pretty oily, as with most donuts. I like that its slightly crispy on the outside, and pretty generously filled.

The filling kinda tastes like butter sweetened with honey. It's a pretty classic yet nice flavour, esp for butter lovers.

Would try @thefatkidbakery 's other flavours in the future too! Ps they're available on @pickupp.sg where you can get $5 off with my promo code ใ€ŠBREADINOSAURใ€‹! There's currently free delivery so dont say bojio ๐Ÿ‘Œ

The filling was fine but the exterior didn't have a good texture.

That's kind of the story of this place, it's pretty decent, can visit if you stay nearby, but really not worth travelling for

Very soft, very sticky, I'm sure there are people who will love this. I quite liked it too, esp the umami bits of dried prawn and minced meat.
