A Prawn away to Checkmate

This is one of my favourite at Tiong Bahru Market. I love it so much that I don't have any difficulty eating the same dish for every single meal. :) Similarly, I find the Prawn noodles pretty healthy. The soup of the Prawn Noodles were not very oily and besides for the usual bean sprouts, some other green vegetables were also included in the Prawn Noodles also.

This is the store that I have being talking about.
It is located on level 2 of Tiong Bahru Market.

This is the Prawn Noodles Soup.
I also love the Prawn Noodles when it's dry and it comes with a lots of chilli.
Regardless of the type of Prawn Noodles that U had ordered, I loved them both. <3 <3

水粿 - ABC? (A Broken Chinese)

No there isn't a typo error. This is a common dish that you can find in a hawker centre in Singapore nowadays. Especially if you have been living in Singapore for the last 20 or more years, you might have heard of the infamous 'Tiong Bahru Chwee Kueh' before. There might be a possibility that this was the same store that have created a trend of opening 'Chwee Kueh Store' all over Singapore. As for myself, it was pretty fortunate for myself to be staying in the Tiong Bahru area for my entire life and this is definitely a taste that I have grown up with.

As usual photos of Food:D...

This is how the store looks like. The same store had been using
the same sign board as far as I can remember.

Here comes the fun part. Images of 'Chwee Kueh'.
Everyone had a different way of judging a good 'Chwee Kueh'.
Some goes for the Dried Radish, some goes for the texture of the 'Chwee Kueh', some goes for the chilli and some of them would be looking at the combination of all 3 factors.
As for myself, I go for the chilli of the 'Chwee Kueh'. I love it...
But I still prefer the taste back then where 'Chwee Kueh' were once offered at a price of S$1 for 5 pieces where Tiong Bahru Market used to be a wet market. :)

  • The operating hours were pretty long and the operating hours were as close as 8am - 10pm

A dessert fantasy for me :D

Everyone in this world had their own fantasies in different areas. you might dream to live in your own castle, dreaming yourself driving a Ferrari or having a dream of you yourself eating a delicious delicacy with all the ingredients that you like. As for myself, this is one of the dessert fantasy that I have been having...

A big bowl of Ice Kacang with only Red Beans and condensed milk covering all the ice.
The ingredients used in this delicacy were pretty simple, and these ingredients were ice, read beans and condensed milk. That's it, simplicity were one of my favorite choices.

(Note: I do agree that I am a Red Bean freak,
but I just couldn't resist the taste of Red Beans.)

But where can you find this delicacy?
It's available at the Kopitiam located at Tiong Bahru Plaza and not all the Kopitiam outlets are selling this delicacy. So hurry down to one of the Kopitiam outlets and try your luck in finding this delicacy, if you have the same dessert fantasy as I do.

Yes, you are not mistaken, there isn't a typo mistake in the title. The title is really 'RIA' or 'AIR'. Why 'RIA'? This is the actually the name of the restaurant, which is 'Ayam Penyet RIA'. As for 'AIR', it's a short form for ' Authentic Indonesian Restaurant'. This is an Indonesian Restaurant with the name of 'Ayam Penyet RIA' located in Lucky Plaza, along Orchard Road.

Here are the photos taken that day.
This is how the restaurant looks like from the outside.

Es Kacang Hijau - Ice Kacang with Green Beans
Too bad this isn't made with Red Beans else I will become a super regular customer.:D

Es Cendol - Ice Chendol
The amount of grass jelly given in each cup of Es Cendol seems to be a lot.

Although the Chilli were not as spicy as the Ayam Penyet store located in SGH, the overall experience dining at the store was pretty good. Especially when they had a large variety of Penyets to choose from. :D

Have a break(from reading) have a Pig Organ Soup.. :P

In the past, I was a frequent user of the National Library located near Bugis Junction. Before stepping in and after stepping out from the National Library, I would never miss the opportunity to savour the delicious Pig Organ Soup(猪杂汤) located in the coffee shop located at Level 1 of Bras Basah Complex.

Without further ado, let's take a look at this delicious delicacy. :D

This is the Pig Organ Soup that I'm referring to. The ingredients thrown into every one bowl of Pig Organ Soup is satisfactory. Besides that, peanuts were provided for free too. Best of all, you can choose to have the soup with either white rice or yam rice. Isn't that great?

Look for yourself, the soup was clear enough for you to actually see that the owner really threw a lot of ingredients into each and every one bowl of Pig Organ Soup.

This is how the stall looks like.
You can actually see the 3 big words 'Pig Organ Soup' positioned on top of the stall.

Oh my, after writing this post, I have the urge to eat Pig Organ Soup again... :P

Kyoto - Kaiseki Cuisine - Chihana

When I went to Japan for a trip last year, I was eating Kaiseki Cuisine for the first time in my entire life. The name of the restaurant was 'Chihana'. In fact, 'Chihana' was one of the Kyoto restaurant that Michelin Guide had awarded a rating of 3 stars. Therefore, I decided to dine at the restaurant when I went to Kyoto last year.

Here are my opinions: The service and the cuisine provided by the restaurant was fantastic.

The following were photos I had taken at 'Chihana':
