Penang Char Kway Teow ($5.50) Aromatic "wok-hei" permeated the oodles of noodles completely. And because it was relatively grease-free, I hardly felt the twinge of guilt that usually accompanies the act of me falling face first into a plate of "char kway teow". The only thing I would change about this is the beansprouts. They could do with some fattening up.
Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun Soup ($4.50) I have walked past here several times at night and it's always full of customers feasting on their steaming hot pots of "Malacca Satay Lok Lok". I haven't tried it for myself so I can't comment but I did have their "Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun Soup" and it was really satisfying. They're generous with the smooth rice noodles - almost too generous in fact. And although the plentiful shredded chicken breast meat was a bit on the stringy side, all was forgiven when I sipped the soup. It was clear but full of flavour, and it had crispy bits of fried pork lard in it! Ok, anything with fried pork lard gets me beaming, so I was immediately nodding my head happily as I sucked up every drop of soup from the bowl. They also have this wonderful spicy chicken rice chilli sauce which went very well with the "hor fun" and shredded chicken. Another plus point is they are open till 2am every single night so I know where to go if I feel like having a healthy supper :)

Near Lavender MRT is The Beef House, commonly known for good Hakka Yong Tau Foo. However, when I was there at 12.30pm on a Saturday, they were completely sold out. So, I just ordered what was left - Beef Ball Soup and Noodles [$4].⁣ ⁣ Because it was not planned, those 2 dishes certainly caught me by surprise. Firstly, the beef balls tasted springy with strong umami. The owner makes them by hand everyday and I can assure you their taste is completely different from any beef ball you buy outside. Secondly, unlike the usual MSG soup from many noodle shops in Singapore, the soup here was very refreshing. It was a clear soup but it had good concentrated flavours. Lastly, the noodles were thin, chewy with a strong onion taste. It may not be suitable for everyone but I certainly liked it as it paired well with the beef balls.⁣ ⁣ Overall, I may not have gotten to eat the famous Hakka Yong Tau Foo set there but the Beef Ball Soup and Noodles were definitely not subpar. In fact, they were so tasty now I wonder how good the Yong Tau Foo is that it overshadows the success of these 2 dishes. I shall return another day, albeit earlier to make sure I try them. -Foodier✌🏻
Handmade Hakka Beef Balls This corner stall located along Syed Alwi Road is famous for 3 things, their Hakka Beef Ball Bee Hoon Soup, Hakka Yong Tau Foo and Hakka Beef Kway Teow. Although I’ve never tried the latter, I must admit both their Yong tau foo and homemade beef balls are seriously good. Their beef balls are dense with a nice chew to it. The flavour is legit and tastes miles better from what you typically get from factory-made ones. For one, you can actually taste the beef in the ball. They’re also really massive which is a major plus too!
Hakka Yong Tau Foo Set ($3) With or without the noodles, the price tag of this set remains the same. The number of decently sized yong tau foo pieces (beancurd, bitter gourd, mushroom, fish and pork balls, fried wanton and wuxiang) is totally dependent on your luck as it can hover between 6 to 8 of them. The springy noodles were tossed in pork lard and topped with minced pork. So yum! Definitely missed this old school taste/ 古早味! According to my mom, you might be delighted to find dried oyster wrapped with meat if you were to join the morning crowd!

Tiong Shian Porridge. Located at 265 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 088745. . . Pork Porridge with Century Egg, $4.50. A relatively large bowl of porridge for the price! Very smooth silky porridge with minced meat and generous portion of Century egg👏🏼👏🏼! This traditional porridge is very tasty on its own and texture is just right, not too watery nor sticky! Fried onions and scallions topping surely adds more flavours to it! Super yummy lunch! . . . #hungryunicornsg #tiongshian #tiongshianporridge #porkporridge #centuryeggporridge
A Tasty Pork And Innards Porridge ($4.50) Housed in a corner coffeeshop next to the huge Smith Street Market and Food Centre in Chinatown is this porridge institution. I have always gone there for their frog leg porridge but I tried the pork one last night and liked it very much too. For $4.50, it sure was chockfull of sliced pork, meatballs, pig’s liver and intestines. The porridge itself was properly seasoned and fortunately, not too sludge-like. I am not fond of eating porridge that has the texture of wet cement.

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).
