๐Ÿ˜‹ Peanut butter min jiang kueh from Grannyโ€™s Pancake! Crunchy peanut bits with the soft pancake just make for a satisfying sweet treat! ๐Ÿฅœ Who needs western pancakes when youโ€™ve got these traditional delicacies? #oldisgold

Is a bowl of bull shit which cost me $3.20. With Only 2 fishball. And for the $2 fishball noodles itself have 6 fishball. Taste wise is bad as well. ๐Ÿ™„

Mee kia! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป
Not really a fan of noodles but I do enjoy hawker centre foods. This meatball mee kia was flavourful and the noodles gave me a good slurp! I requested for 'a little bit spicy' but that 'little bit' was already 'too spicy' for me! HAHA.

Coffee is great, smooth and fragrant, not overly sweet, not overly acidic, just the right balance! The toast and eggs are however, the best part of the set meal! Bread is well toasted to perfection, no burnt edges, no hard-as-rocks parts, the butter is melted and so so smooth! Eggs are cooked perfectly - not too runny not too cooked, I'm usually not a big fan of half boiled eggs (other than my usual fix at a famous chain of cafe run by a family), but this, THIS stall, makes the eggs so well that I polished off the whole plate on my own without sharing with my husband! You would have to try it yourself to know how awesome the eggs are!

There was a q at 1.30pm, and before we were done eating, the shop closed!
Love the chewiness of the noodle, portion was just nice for $3. The soup base was thick and fragant too

One of the nicest Chendol I had in a while. Love the generosity of the Gula Melaka that they poured on top of the creamy coconut milk. Will definitely drop by here for dessert if I am in the area again.

Half boiled eggs made just the way it should be. Runny on the inside but cooked enough that it wouldn't break when I opened it. The owner puts the right amount of butter and kaya spread giving the toast the perfect harmony of sweetness and butter cream. Must try.

From ๅทๅฅฅๅฐๅŽจ (#01-78), meaning Sichuan+Cantonese Kitchen, which it really is as it sells both Sichuan dishes like this sour veg fish and mala stuff, as well as Cantonese soups. They do both cuisines wonderfully, at an affordable price. This fish dish isn't the nicest we've tried (love their Chong Qing Grilled Fish!) but still good; looked harmless at first but was suuper tongue-numbing kind of spicy.

Dear hubby observed that the layout of this old coffee stall mirrored the trendy modern cafe where the barrister will be facing the customers when making the drinks ๐Ÿ™‚

Black carrot cake - the combination of sweet sauce, egg, radish, and turnip is spot on.

Price: $ (starts from $2.50)
Taste: 4.5/5
Verdict: must try
Availability: AM only

Am i addicted to curry rice? Anyways this one is quite oily and thick as you can see. I ordered chicken cutlet, fried egg and potatoes! The curry has a little grainy after taste, other than that i have nothing to pick on. yum yum~

Very few stores are opened on ๅˆไธ‰๏ผŒbut I am glad #hoeheng is. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Super flavourful starchy sauce with chunky tender pork that absorbed all the goodness of the star anise & five spice. ๐Ÿคค All the goodness paired with the fried fritters(that I never figured out what it was) ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Yum #burpple #lormee #sghawker #hoeheng

This Kaya Toast melts in your mouth.
The owner insists that you eat it on the spot.
Good breakfast eat or snack anytime of the day!

Traditional breakfast for today. Having a bowl of hot Mee Soto with bagedil (potato ball) plus additional fried liver. Extra cili padi kicap for extra punch!! powwow!!

means effort went back to zero?). But it's k, we all need some motivation, don't we? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Spotted this in Lorong 8 Toa Payoh market bearing the sign - Only available at night, then I definitely need to go for it! Portion comes in $3/$4/$5, mine is the $4 one and it came with many many sinful treats like the unusual fried wanton and fried fish. Felt the gravy could be more fragrant but huge helping of minced garlic and vinegar made for for it!
