Chia Keng (Che Jian) Hokkien Mee: Now that’s what I call traditional HKM!
With Amagada If you are looking for a truly traditional Hokkien Mee, then this is the place to get it. It’s got it all. The opeh leaf, the crunchy pork lard, boiled melt-in-your-mouth belly pork, cut chilli and most importantly, a stock made from Sea Prawns or “Sua Lor” as it is called in Hokkien. […]
Golden City Carrot Cake: Carrot Cake with Ikan Bilis and Crispy Fried Chye Poh!
This Stall is Closed! Carrot Cake $3 portion I found it! I found it! The best carrot cake I have tasted is just a stone’s throw away from home and it took me so long to find it! You know, I haven’t eaten any outstanding carrot cake that I can really put my finger on […]
This stall is closed Well, we Singaporeans are an honest bunch. We know our faults and we openly admit them. Impatient, rude, unforgiving and downright Kiasu. We sigh in frustration when we experience graciousness in other societies and lament that we can’t be the same. Hey, all is not lost. Deep inside each and everyone […]
With Cactuskit and liverpool Chilli Crayfish (deshelled) $12 Although this blog is about great food, you all realize that the stalls that we frequent do not necessarily sell THE best food. No, there are several other factors that influence how we decide where to eat our next meal, right or not? At least for myself, […]
Twe Kee Chicken Rice: Mom and Pop still doing it the traditional way.

With smart and bashful hunter Poh Piah is just great. It’s healthy (relatively) and tasty and it is a really good side dish with whatever you are ordering. If you think about it, it is just the Chinese version of the Donar Kebab or the Burrito and the way I see it, it should originally […]
After over a year of blogging, I must admit that I am getting a little spoilt. It is getting harder and harder to find dishes that really make me go “Phwa Say!!” I guess the threshold to delight keeps getting higher and higher because once you have tested the best, the rest just don’t thrill […]
Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles: Damien’s Favourite Beef Noodles!
With smart, liverpool, bashfulhunter, iwatch_ueat, damien and PowerAunty Beef Kway Teow Dry $4 According to Damien, this stall sells the BEST beef kway teow in Singapore. Better than all the rest. So we had to make our pilgrimage down to Toa Payoh to try it. The stall is supposed to be opened till 7pm, so […]
Poh Piah is like the snack food that you buy to accompany your main meal right? I mean, does anyone here simply go out there and eat Poh Piah and that’s it? Usually, we would order a few Poh Piahs as a common “share-share” type of dish. I sometimes think about hawker dishes along the […]
Hong Kong Wanton Mee: The Anderson JC Alumni Pilgrimage
This stall has shifted to Toa Payoh Wanton Mee $2 I was at ABC Brickworks eating at Fatty Cheong’s when I happen to bump into one of our blog readers, Tarzan (cos he’s married to Jane) who also happened to be eating at Fatty’s. However, I noticed that he had a plate of Wanton Mee […]
Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles: Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a Winner!
With smart, PK and ColdStorage Prawn Mee Soup with XL Prawns $8 I think I have found the preeminent prawn mee at last. Up till now, I have found that most of the top rated stalls were just as good as each other and have been having difficulty proclaiming one to be my favourite. That […]

Our group of makankakis visited Serangoon Way Food centre and carnineviand told me about this famous Newton Char Kway Teow stall. It was 3.30pm in the afternoon and there was a queue outside the stall. Being […]
