Ho Guan Satay Bee Hoon: Pioneer Generation Hawkers!
Satay Beehoon and cuttlefish kangkong belong to that category of hawker food which may be best described as "niche". Some hawker dishes like chicken rice, roti prata and carrot cake are so much a part of the Singaporean identity that one really cannot be considered a true blue Singaporean if you have tried these dishes in your life. (Ok lah, vegans excepted) But I am very sure that there will be some readers here who have never eaten Satay Beehoon before, right?
So far Cendol Melaka comes closest to the one I remember from Teochew Cendul in Penang. It is the type that is sold along the streets of Malaysia. Light, refreshing with just a pinch of salt to give it that rounded mouth feel. Nobody would ever dare say that it is as good as the best ones in Malaysia but it is certainly amongst the best that you can find here in Singapore.
International Nasi Lemak: Alamak, which Nasi Lemak!
If you have been to the newly renovated Changi Village Food Centre, you would be lost. It would seem that all the stalls have just played musical chairs and have relocated to another place even though the layout of the hawker centre seems to be much the same! I am not sure what the rationale […]
Million Stars Goreng Pisang: Do you eat Tempura but Shun Goreng Pisang?
I had some pretty amazing Tempura during my trip to Tokyo and that got me trying to make some Tempura at home. For those of you who have ever tried making Tempura, you would know that is is not as easy as it looks. It’s quite an art to get the batter to that crisp […]
Changi Teochew Kitchen: From Simple Teochew Mueh to Teochew Banquet
This restaurant is closed With Fashionfoodie,Cactuskit, Jencooks, Wahcow, Toothfairy and BossConan Now, this Teochew Kitchen was recommended by Fashionfoodie who, if you all remember, is one of our Teochew Ah Hias who really loves his Peh Dou Her. So when he started going on about the Braised Duck and Tua Terng (Large intestines) here, I […]
Guan Kee Chai Tau Kway: Still steaming it themselves!
This stall is closed All is not gloom and doom in the hawker front. We all complain that it is going downhill and that everything is getting outsourced such that hawkers are now more like traders rather than cooks but there is a glimmer of hope over the horizon. I guess with all things, it […]
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. […]
Sri Sujana: Nasi Lemak Contender #2 Changi Village Hawker Centre Part 6 of 6
With smart, holydrummer and iwatch_ueat Sri Sujana is right next to Mizzy’s and they are selling the set at $2. As far as I can see, the only difference is that Mizzy’s uses a deeper plate. The rice here has a stronger pandan flavour which I enjoyed. Again the rice would have been so much […]
Mizzy’s Corner: Which Nasi Lemak Stall? Changi Village Hawker Centre Part 5 of 6
With smart, holydrummer and iwatch_ueat Shown here with an extra chicken wing Can’t get away from a Changi Village series without blogging about the Nasi Lemak. I guess the main question on everybody’s mind is NOT “which one is the most popular” because International Nasi Lemak is the one with the longest queue. The real […]
Beef Kway Teow: Flavour that you can See! Changi Village Hawker Centre Part 4 of 6
The owners have retired and the stall is closed I find it the most satisfying to discover stalls which sell really great food, BUT which still does not have any newspaper cuttings or pictures of Mediacorp Stars on them! Don’t let the simple, unadorned frontage of the stall fool you. Within this unassuming cubicle lies […]
Sri Bastari: Is my Ayam Penyet? Changi Village Hawker Centre Part 3 of 7
With smart, holydrummer and iwatch_ueat For those who go to Changi Village Hawker Centre but never bother to venture across to the market side….. well you have been missing out on quite a gem! Ok, I am really talking about the biggest Sua Gu (Mountain Tortoise) which is myself! Ayam Penyet is the healther alternative […]
Amigo: Bak Chor Mee my Friend: Changi Village Hawker Centre Part 2 of 6
This is one of the better Bak Chor Mees around and I actually like the chilli here more than many other stalls. For me, the balance of the chilli and vinegar is just right and the combination of the mince pork and the sauce was really shiok. The only thing that is preventing it from […]
