Remember Lavender Food Square? They used to house famous hawker stalls like Kok Kee Wanton Mee, Miow Sin Carrot cake and Albert Street Prawn Mee. The hawker centre, together with the neighbouring Eminent Plaza were demolished in 2014 and in its place now stands ARC 380. The building has been in operation since 2018, but […]
Here is another hawker who is making chee cheong fun fresh on the premises! I had written about Pin Wei at Cambridge Road FC and the Freshly Made Chee Cheong Fun at Old Airport Road previously but it has been quite a while since a new stall has emerged. I still can’t figure out why […]
Mui Kee Congee: Iconic Hong Kong Hawker Comes to Town!
Mui Kee Congee is one of those popular eateries which are often on “To Eat” list of anyone heading to Hong Kong for a holiday.

If you don't wish to travel all the way to Anson to try the Chee Cheong Fun, then the good news is that a similar version is available right here in Singapore. This particular shop, which sells Teluk Intan style chee cheong fun has already been around for a few years but has recently changed hands and undergone a complete renovation. The new owner, Michelle, a Singaporean who was born and brought up in Teluk Intan bought over the shop so that she can re-create her favourite dishes which she used to enjoy as a kid.

Lai Hua Porridge Cheong Fun: Found my Zhar Leong at last!
This stall is closed I finally found a stall in a hawker centre that sells Zhar Leong (Chee Cheong Fun with You Tiao)! For those who haven’t yet tried this Hong Kong Dim Sum dish, it is essentially deep fried flour wrapped in steamed flour and drenched in a slightly sweet and savoury soy sauce. […]
Freshly Made Chee Cheong Fun: The Secret Weapon for Finicky Kids!
Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun $2 each My five year old daughter is really picky about food and often would take an hour just to finish a meal (if she even finishes it!). But when she took her first bite of this Chee Cheong Fun, she couldn’t stop eating it and I had to go […]
