Chee Cheong Fun (2 rolls)
Topped with Crispy Mock Goose, sweet sauce, chilli sauce, chopped spring onion and sesame seeds
Plus 6 pieces of Yong Tau Foo (Stuffed eggplant, fried dumpling, cuttlefish ball, fishcakes).

Was tipped off about this under-the-radar stall, mostly known to residents of Tampines East. Operating for at least 5 years, probably more.
Presentation is iconic, using large, old-school metal plates, with the chili in metal bowls that resemble the chwee kueh moulds.
The juicy pork and liver 5 spice rolls have nice meaty savoury salty spice earthy notes, the soft water chestnut cakes have lovely earthy sweet savoury flavour, and the fish cake is bouncy and large with sweet savoury notes.
The prawn cracker fritter shatters lightly with savoury shrimpy sweet flavour, while the chewy guan chang / Chinese marinated sausage is meaty with savoury salty flavour.
I like that they're generous with the crushed peanuts, and the inclusion of cucumbers is good. The chili is lightly spicy salty, with a mild kick. Nice.

Have you had your breakfast? Here we are having our breakfast from our favourite bee hoon / nasi lemak stall at Tampines St 21 Market.

This is totally a hidden food gem in the east and I would say that it taste way better than any of the nasi lemak I have tried. The ingredients were freshly prepared and fried. They are all crispy and not super oily kind of deep fried food.

Interestingly they prepared the bee hoon using the rice cook to stir fried it (probably to prevent fire accident) but the white bee hoon taste really good and you really have to depend on luck to see whether you get to try the white bee hoon because it run out pretty fast.
Another point to note is that they open till around like 10am in the morning, you really have to be an early bird to be able to try this and as they are located within the wet market so you only get to dabao it. 📍 Tampines Street 21, 201 Wet Market (located beside the egg stall)

Whenever we happened to pass by the store, we see people having the assam fish head ($20-may be seasonal price) and it looks legit good. Thus, we have decided to give it a try. Indeed, the assam sauce taste really shiok, the spicy level is just nice for my comfort level. The fish was really fresh and it is definitely worth it to pay the price for the fish head.

We particularly also liked their Japanese style pork ribs ($13). The pork ribs were nicely marinated with their japanese style sauce and the floss which was sprinkle on top of the pork ribs blend really well.
This is definitely a good tze char recommendation for people living in Tampines/ East. 🚇 Tampines East Station (DTL) 📍 Ming Kitchen Seafood, Blk 201C Tampines Street 21

Chance upon this hidden gem in Tampines when decided to explore some old estates over the weekend.
Located in the Coffeeshop side by side with a rather popular bah Chor noodle stall.

The stall serve the similar snack selection like most Ngo Hiang stall has. What set it apart was the freshness of the ingredients ; it’s chilli sauce and it’s presentation of food that totally blow my mind. Let’s dive into the detail.

Ngo Hiang - they have typical cured cuttlefish; fried prawn cracker; chestnut cake ; bean curb ; cured sausages and etc which spell freshness . It also serve the rare pig liver Ngo Hiang that was hard to find nowadays. Owner has also the skill to fry the ingredients and yet not oily which the plate has not much oil left.

Chilli sauce - typical chilli sauce are hot which also serve along with sweet sauce. Not for this stall which they only serve one kind of chilli sauce. The sauce spiciness is acceptable and is of savoury with hint of garlic and serve with fresh ground peanuts.

Presentation - Probably one of the most innovative usage to serve to food which owner uses metallic plates for putting in Ngo Hiang ; bee hoon and chilli sauce. The chilli sauce saucer plate was like a rice cake saucer plate made of aluminium which I think is really good idea and nostalgic.

Total 11 ingredients in this picture plus 2 plates of bee hoon cost me $15 which is reasonable in comparison with other Ngo Hiang Stall.

Normally, foodie will upload the pictures of food, but i decided to take a picture of my empty bowl and plate to convince people just how good the food is. Located at Tampines St 21, Blk201C, Chang Cheng Mee Wah Coffee Shop S(523201). You will never know there's a hidden gem in this vicinity. Let alone in a coffee shop. The cashier is very welcoming and if you can't make your mind up, she'll be more than willing to help you with what to eat. The price is not that steep(it's cheap!) and the portion of the food is fulfilling. Waker X Oppa is definitely a better alternative if you are looking for cheap and good Korean food besides Seoul Garden. Although it is located in the east, but let me tell you this, it is worth the travelling time there. Try it! It's guuuuuuud!!
