Fans of Punggol noodles might be wondering where they relocated too after the re-opening of Kovan Food Centre. Well, they have just moved to the coffeeshop down the road……. in case you are really wondering.

Bak Chor Mee Soup $3.50 While I was on my Ramen Rampage, I couldn’t help but think that Ramen is after all a bowl of noodle soup and that there must be a local version of the noodle soup that can give you the same shiokness but for a fraction of the price. So I […]
