Good Ol’ Comfort Classic Whenever I am feeling low, I look around me and I know there’s a place that will stay within me, wherever I may choose to go. I will always recall the stall where they serve up the best roast meats, and that is Fatty Cheong. At $8 for the holy trinity of roast duck, roast pork & char siew, it’s a shocking steal. Y’all already know all about their fatty, smoky and savory char siew is, how unbelievably unctuous their sio bak is, and of course, y’all know all about that ridiculously redolent roast duck. But that dark, delicious gravy just holds it all together oh so perfectly, and floods the steamed rice with flavor. This is home, truly, where I know I must eat. Where my dreams wait for me, where the gravy always flows.
Fat 🅱️ O I Z Fatty Cheong has opened up a new noodle stall right at the back of ABC Hawker Center, and for five bucks, you too could get a plate of sapid shui gao (soup wonton) hor fun. While the shui gaos aren’t the best as the skin is too thick, it’s still quite quaint in its own right. Due to the generosity of Fatty Cheong (who I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume is the owner), those shui gaos are pretty plump and sensationally superb. The hor fun is done al dente, and the standard issue chili is rather redolent and spicy. Of course, Fatty Cheong’s sinfully stellar char siew makes everything better. Hey, if you liked the noodles at the OG stall, you’re gonna love this one.
Char Siew Rice $3.50 The char siew is very tender and has the fragrance of the charred taste. The dark sauce and the chilli sauce pair beautifully with the char siew and rice. The rice is abit dry though, which is why the sauce comes in useful. Score: 9/10

Abacus Seeds 2.5 Quite average and doesnt quite have the usual chewy texture, this one was slightly mushy.
Went a little Ku Ku when I devoured the Kueh... was also slightly Ang-ry at myself for not having tried this sooner... . . Yesterday, I got to try some kuehs for the first time from @pohcheukitchen. It was an impromptu decision to go down for some kuehs with my friend and it was a decision that I did not regret. I managed to try the yam ang ku kueh which I really loved a lot as it was not too sweet and the filling was generous. Imagine having orh ni but enclosed in a thin and delectable layer of ku kueh skin. Splendid! I had the peanut one which was pretty normal but still delicious nonetheless. The one with the mung bean paste filling was slightly too dry for my liking and I have had better (read more about it below). The soon kueh, bamboo shoot kueh, koo chye kueh, and png kueh were also pretty good too. You could tell that they use plenty of dried shrimps when you bite down on the kueh and that is one of the reason for the fragrance it emits. Many places sell kuehs with skin that is too thick which diminishes the quality of the kuehs in my opinion. Not here though, as the skin for all the kuehs that I bought were appropriately thin. I will definitely be back to get all 12 flavours of ang ku kuehs! Too many flavours, too little room in the stomach! 😂 . . I once had a discussion with @traditionalfoodhero and @ariane.le about what I would choose to have as part of dessert for my last meal (if I had a choice). I said that my aunt's Ang Ku Kueh, which she used to make for friends and family on special occasions, would definitely top the list. I love Ang Ku Kueh ever since young mostly because of my aunt but I haven't had nice ones for a long time because my aunt is now too old to make her signature Ang Ku Kueh. I would say that I am quite particular about my ang ku kuehs and my favourite would be the mung bean paste ang ku kuehs made by my aunt. Mung bean paste ang ku kuehs were my aunt's signature and they are the best I have ever had. People often attempt to pay my aunt for her to make it in batches but she always rejects the offers. Making ang ku kueh is extremely tedious but I guess my aunt's love for the family is stronger, thus only making it for us. 😅

A Myriad Of Flavors This place offers a large variety of flavors - from the traditional such as peanut, green bean to the less seen (pineapple, durian). I loved how soft the skin was across all the flavors I tried. Pictured here: Peanut, Coconut, Red Bean and Yam (all flavors $1.10 each).

Set Menu B Considering that Old Street Bak Kut Teh is a restaurant chain located at malls, I think that the quality of the BKT is not shabby at all. With Set Menu B (S$17.10), it’s literally an upgrade of the ribs to the Premium Pork Loin Ribs, and they come with a basket of dough fritters, a bowl of rice and a bowl of Tau Huay. The meat was not too tough for easy tearing with the teeth, and soup is definitely refillable. They also have a condiments bar where chopped chilli, garlic and other sauces are readily available on demand. One thing that I perceive as a double-edged sword is the ordering system, which is by a tablet that is affixed at each table. While it is surely convenient as a food ordering device, it’s a little bothersome to realise that it can only be accessed from one side of the table. So if you come in to look for a “table for one”, just be mindful of where to sit, and then go to the opposite side of the table to retrieve the chopsticks and spoons.
Bak Kut Teh Set ($11.10) Each set comes with rice, you tiau and beancurd. The soup is peppery which helps cut the slight heavy taste of the soup. I could ask for soup refill for many times! Most of the time, I can't finish the beancurd as I get too full at the end of the meal 😅 Definitely value for money!
~ LUNCH ~ Price: ~ $10 per pax Today is gonna be a cold wet day, time for some ba ku teh💕✨can I say, don’t be deterred by the fact that it’s a restaurant/popular franchise. It is legitly good:) The soup is slightly too peppery and oily but the taste is on point. The preserved vegetable is $4.20 but at a closer look, it is huge and contain a generous amount of pork fat and meat! The large portion ba ku teh contains like 6-8 pieces of meat - worth!🤤 They have a condiments bar and also free flow of soup!🌝✨ sometimes I really think it’s more worth the value and a higher quality of food to give these random restaurants a chance and abandon the food courts. ( Hawker centre is a eternal food santuary, no debate there😌✨) #burrple #burrplesg #foodiesg #sgfood #foodgramsg #bakutehsg #wheretoeatsg #whattoeatsg #straitstimesfood #foodinsing #singaporeeats #eatsg #sgeats #foodsg #singaporefood #foodblogsg

Review on Soon Kueh (Turnip Filling aka Mang Guang; $1.20 ea) & (Mini) Ang Ku Kueh Date visited: 12/5/2018 (Sat, 12.45pm) I managed to buy the last box of soon kueh (only 3 left in box). Soon kueh was very delicious. Skin was really soft, not too thick, and slightly chewy - not the translucent/ slightly transparent Hakka-type of skin that I don't like. Turnip filling (aka mang guang filling) was fantastic; fragrant and flavourful. Really love their soon kueh! It is something I will buy again. Wish there's more filling though. But at $1.20 per handmade soon kueh, I'm not complaining. The box of mini ang ku kueh was ok. Skin was soft with a good QQ consistency. Out of the assortment of flavours I got, I actually prefer the coconut filling one; more flavourful than the rest. Sweet mung bean was normal, but then again, sweet mung bean filling was never my favourite. I usually love anything yam-related though(anything with Orh Nee). But the yam one was like the sweet mung bean one; it was actually difficult to tell the filling apart from the skin. Maybe I should have gotten the normal-sized ones. The kuehs are good to keep for 2 days. If you can't finish them on the day you bought them, in the evening, keep them in the fridge and you can still enjoy them the following day (the last day you should eat them).
Rare Find Soon Kueh (S$1.20) which stuffed with bamboo shoots Ku Chai Kueh (Steamed Chive Dumplings) 蒸韭菜果 which stuffed with chives Available at @Kuehs_And_Snacks Preferred the Soon Kueh more as it was rare to find it these days and tasted less raw than the other one. .

Soon Kueh + Ang Ku Kueh (bean, yam) Got these from a super traditional-looking store, manned by the cutest old uncles and aunties (who btw are pretty good salesmen; just imagine how your grandma will coerce you into eating more, but instead these oldies are making you buy more goodies). Didn’t get to try them cos I got them for my family, but my mother said it’s 软到离谱 (so soft it’s a crime).
