Selling Noodles or Ingredients

There will be times where one would come across great delicacies unknowingly. Similarly, there might be chances that you will be coming across side dishes that might taste much more better than the main dish itself. For example...

'Teochew Sliced Abalone Minced Meat Noodle'(潮州鲍片肉脞麵)
From the appearance, this might look pretty decent and it's the portion of it that looks
kinda small. However...

Usually, when it comes to a bowl of noodles or 'Kway Teow'(more commonly known as fat
rice noodles) , I would stir the whole bowl of ingredients thoroughly before digging
into the noodles first. The taste of the 'Kway Teow' ended up to be pretty normal and
I think that the lady cooking the noodles have added a bit too much sauce into the bowl
itself. Though the taste of the 'Kway Teow' remains to be the same, but the texture is a bit too soggy.

However, as I started moving on to the ingredients, I realise something pretty interesting.
In actual fact, the ingredients that they are serving over here are pretty tasty. For a
start, the ingredients wrapped inside the delicious 'Dumpling' are not only crunchy, there's
a nice mix of vegetables and meat inside the 'Dumpling' too. :) Though only a few slices of
thin 'Abalone' was given, but all of them are pretty fresh and chewy. On top of that,
sinful ingredients like 'Fishball', 'Lean Meat', slices of 'Fish Cake', 'Meatball', 'Minced
Meat', etc... were added into the bowl of noodles too. Probably, the normal noodles and
'Mee Pok' might have tasted even much more better, but I personally think that they need to
work harder in preparing a delicious bowl of 'Kway Teow'. By the way, the salty soup is
kinda disappointing too. It's a bit too pepperish to me. :|

So where can you give the delicious ingredients a try?
The name of this stall would be 'Top of the Town'(高峰麵家).
It's located in one of the coffee shops towards the end of 'Neil Road'.

By the way, let's take a quick glance of the 'Noodles' menu.

  • Opening Hours:
  • I'm not pretty certain myself too. Their opening hours seem to be pretty long. Therefore, it will be great if anyone out there can enlighten me on their opening hours. :)

Yong's Teochew Kueh...

Since I have travelled all the way up to the Northeast looking for good food and instead of leaving the area without a stomach full of food, I decided to give the other stuff a try. While walking around the area aimlessly, I ended up coming across this shop that sells nothing but different types of 'Teochew Kueh'. Therefore...

Left: 'Soon Kueh'
Right: 'Yam Kueh'

'Yam Kueh'
For a start, I personally find the overall experience eating the 'Yam Kueh'
to be pretty funky. Do not be mistaken, the taste of the 'Yam' itself is
there, but the idea of stuffing 'Yam' and 'Mushroom' into a 'Teochew Kueh'
just doesn't seems right. Although the 'Kueh' is freshly made but the
overall taste of it is kinda weird and funny.

'Soon Kueh'
When I was savouring this, I'm pretty surprise that the 'Soon Kueh'
still remains to be pretty warm. This simply prove that the 'Soon Kueh'
were freshly made and as I was savouring the 'Soon Kueh', the taste of
the crunchy turnip mixed with a bit of vegetables just makes it so much
more tastier. Topped with some of my favourite ingredients like 'Mushrooms'
just simply explains why I couldn't resist the taste of it up till today.

So where can you give the freshly made 'Teochew Kueh' a try?
The name of this shop would be 'Yong's Teochew Kueh'(榮潮州粿).
It's located along Upper Serangoon Road.

  • Opening Hours:
    07:00 - 19:00 Daily

A heavy Teochew Porridge for Lunch

How heavy can your lunch be? That's probably one of the common questions that I have been asking myself on a daily basis. If one's appetite can be measured using some electronical device, I wonder how will mine turn out to be. Either way, let's move on to the main topic today. :D

'Teochew Porridge Buffet'
I have given the daily 'Teochew Porridge' lunch promotion a try back then. As far as I
could remember they have a large variety of delicious ingredients and the prices are
pretty reasonable too. (Therefore, if you are a glutton like me, you really can enjoy
it to the maximum.)

For a start, Besides for white rice, they also serve 'Sweet Potato Porridge'(番薯粥),
'Fried Rice', 'Fried Bee Hoon' over here too. Out of all the options listed over here
I think that the 'Sweet Potato Porridge' would be the best and the most filling too.
Just by looking at the big slices of 'Sweet Potato' should pretty much explain
everything. However, if you are a 'Curry' guy, a bowl of white rice should be a better
choice for you. :P (Anyway, I ended up trying most of them.)

As for the ingredients itself, I have list down some of the better one.

'Sichuan' vegetables
It's crunchy and despite of the fact that the slices of chopped chilli are missing,
the taste of it is pretty spicy, which I love it very much. :P

'Teochew Fishcake'
It's pretty chewy and depending on the chef itself, the ingredients used in making
this may varies. As for the one over here, they have stuffed quite a bit of vegetables
inside it.

'Curry Chicken'
Even it's called 'Curry Chicken', there's actually more 'Chicken Drumlets' than anything
else. By the way, the taste of the 'Curry' have blend into the 'Drumlets' completely.
On top of that, the taste of the 'Curry' over here are pretty milky and sweet too. :D

'Braised Egg and Peanuts'
How can one savour a good 'Teochew Porridge' buffet without all these braised stuff?
Even though the taste of the braised sauce are pretty much the same, but I just
couldn't resist these stuff. Just by picking up one peanut after another into my mouth
have definitely made my appetite grown bigger and bigger.

'Preserved vegetables'
If you are into the salty taste of the 'Preserved Vegetables', you have definitely
come to the correct place for it. I only took a small portion of it and due to the
salty taste of it, I almost have difficulty finishing it.

By the way, I think I have ended up having more than 8 'Curry Drumlets' that day and
a bowl of sliced oranges for desserts too. Although the whole buffet last for merely
2 hours only, but it only took me an hour to fill my appetite to the maximum. :P

So where can you give the delicious and affordable 'Teochew Porridge' a try?
The name of this place would be 'The Rajah Inn'.
It's located on level 2 of 'Tiong Bahru Plaza'.

Cream Puff from Beard Papa

I have eaten all sorts of pastry in Singapore. However, up till last weekend, I have yet come across a delicious 'Cream Puff' in Singapore. In fact, most of the 'Cream Puff' in Singapore have a few major weaknesses. For a start, the texture of the 'Cream Puff' is either too soft or the amount of filling that was insert into the 'Cream Puff' aren't satisfying enough. However...

'Mango Yogurt Cream Puff'
I have bought 2 'Cream Puff' the other day. One of them would be the 'Mango Yogurt Cream
Puff' and the other one would be the original 'Cream Puff'. Taken out from the fridge, the
taste of the 'Mango Yogurt Cream Puff' is fantastically delicious. It comes with a not so
hard and not so soft texture, a fluffy interior topped with a nice aroma of 'Butter'. As
for the filling inside, the sweet and refreshing 'Mango Yogurt' is delicious and cooling.

In fact, I have eaten the 'Cream Puffs' of 'Beard Papa' as I was travelling in Japan back
then. The way that they are selling the 'Cream Puff' over here are pretty much the same as
those in Japan. After a customer place an order for a 'Cream Puff', they will pick up one of
them and inject a generous portion of fillings into it. In other words, you will be getting
lots of fresh cream inside the 'Cream Puff' itself. There is this amazing sense of happiness,
when I was savouring the nice 'Cream Puff'.

The name of this shop would be 'Beard Papa'.
The above shows the outlet located in the shopping mall, 'Serangoon Nex'.

A different M3N and not MSN...

How different can a bowl of 'Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles'(M3N) be? If you have done up a survey asking groups and groups of people this question, probably you might be getting all sorts of answers. However, as for today, let me introduce you to something different...

'Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles'(香菇肉脞麵)
Usually, I would go for the 'dry' version of 'Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles',
but since it's my first time giving this stall a try and I realise that the
stall owner has listed down the 'soup' version of 'Mushroom Minced Meat
Noodles' as one of the specialities, I think that I should give it a try too.

Just by taking a look at the bowl of noodles, one can easily spot ingredients
like 'Pork Livers', 'Minced Meat', 'Seaweed', 'Mushrooms', 'Vegetables',
'Noodles', 'Bean sprouts', etc... Anyway for a start, the soup itself come with
a very interesting strong aroma and taste. Despite of the fact that we are
3 or 4 tables apart from the stall, we still can smell the strong aroma of
the soup itself. From the taste and the colour itself, it's probably a mixture
of vinegar and some special ingredients. Regardless of the ingredients used,
the taste of the thick, non-pepperish and superb soup would most likely be one
of the thickest and flavoursome 'Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles' soup in Singapore.

As for the noodles that they have used over here, it's very different from
what you are getting elsewhere. It's like a mini version of the common
'Mee Pok' noodles, which is much more thinner in terms of size. However it's
much more tangy and chewy than the normal 'Mee Pok' noodles. Even when it's
fully submerged into the bowl of soup itself, it doesn't end up to be soggy
too. While mixing the noodles, the ingredients and a bit of soup together, the
amount of goodness that I'm getting are fantastically good. A bit crunchy,
a bit chewy, a bit of vinegar, in fact it's a mixture of different types of
senses, which manage to blend together nicely and deliciously.

So where can you give the noodles a try?
The name of this stall would be
'Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles'(勝記香菇肉脞麵).
It's located inside 'Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre'.

Another Hakka 'Yong Tau Fu'

Since there's a free lunch shuttle bus departing from my office to a nearby food centre on weekdays, I decided to hop onto the free shuttle bus that's going to 'Clementi' last Friday.

'Hakka Yong Tau Fu'
For a start, I love the Chilli and Tomato sauce that they are pouring all
over the bowl of noodles. As you can see, the sauce itself isn't too
watery and in actual fact, when you stir all the sauces and the noodles
together, the chewy noodles will ended up to have this sweet and spicy
touch. However, I don't find it to be spicy enough. Probably they can
try to increase the spiciness of the sauce even much more. :P

As for the bowl of ingredients itself, all the ingredients look pretty
rich in colour and the taste of all of it are relatively good. All the
meat paste that were stuffed into the individual ingredients were
firmly wrapped together. You wouldn't be getting the meaty stuff falling
apart and best of all, the taste of the meat and the individual
ingredients are blending together nicely. As for the sweet clear soup
itself, it does come with a nice taste of 'Soy Bean' but it's not strong
enough. Probably it would taste much more better, if they have added
much more 'Soy Bean' and preferably 'Ikan Bilis' too.

Although most of the ingredients might appear to be pretty much the same
as compared to a normal 'Yong Tau Fu' stall, but in actual fact there's
actually a major difference. Rather than stuffing most of the ingredients
with fish meat, they are actually stuffing it with meat paste, which
makes it pretty unique and special.

The name of this stall selling 'Hakka style Yong Tau Fu' would be
'Chen Ji Ke Jia Niang Dou Fu'(陳記客家釀豆腐).
This stall is located inside 'Clementi Market and Food Centre'.

  • Opening Hours:
    12:30 - 16:30
    (Closed on Sundays)
  • I was eavesdropping the conversations made by the customers standing in front and behind me and they were mentioning that when business is good, all the ingredients will be gone before 3pm. Therefore, if you really want to try the food over here, you should really start queuing before 12:30 when the queue is still super short.

A Fluffy Dessert...?

Not sure about you people out there but have you eaten a fluffy dessert before? Basically, the post today have something to do with a Fluffy Dessert. :P

'Fluffy Signature'
I have ended up giving their signature dessert a try. It comes with a small mountain
of milk flavoured 'Snow Ice' surrounded by cubes of freshly cut 'Kiwi', 'Mango' and
'Strawberry'. However, I'm not really sure what's the small black coloured balls
since the taste of the fruits are far more overpowering than the small black balls.

Anyway, I don't think that there's anything special about the 'Snow Ice' that they
are using over here. The taste of the 'Snow Ice' isn't too sweet. Anyway, I
personally find the fruits to be the main attraction of this dessert. The freshly
cut fruits are not only fresh, the 'Kiwi' are pretty sour too. When you scoop a bit
of 'Snow Ice' and pieces of 'Kiwi' and 'Strawberry' together, you will be getting
this shivering sensation that to a certain extent, it felt like 'Winter'. :P

Although this place is kinda small, but they are preparing and serving a large variety
of food over here. They also have 'Pancakes', 'Finger Food', 'Main Courses', etc...
In other words, rather than categorising it as a 'Dessert' house, I think that
it's much more appropriate to actually categorizing it as a 'Cafe'.

The name of this 'Cafe' would be 'Fluffy Dessert'.
It's located along 'Tanjong Pagar Road', which is pretty near 'Maxwell Food Centre'

  • Opening Hours:
    12:00 - 23:30
  • Looking at the opening hours, if you suddenly have the urge for 'Desserts' you could actually give this place a try. :D

Time for some tasty music again...

Before you scroll down to the main subject of this post, let's sit back and enjoy some good old Chinese Song first...

'Ye Lai Xiang'(夜来香)
Although 'Teresa Teng' isn't the original singer of this piece of music,
but no one will forget about the legendary 'Teresa Teng'.

'Chicken Cutlet'
The time is 7pm and I was hoping that I could find something nice and new to try. After
walking around the food centre for the second time, I finally spot this ordinary looking
stall selling Western Food. Despite of the number of items that they have, the long queue
is amazingly long. Well, I ended up joining the queue and placed an order for a plate of...

'Chicken Cutlet'
I'm glad that I have gone for the 'Western Food' served over here. For a start, rather
than providing the customers with packets of chilli or tomato sauce, you can simply
squeeze out as much sauces as you like from the free flow sauces 'bar'. Although it's a
'bar', it's actually 2 bottles of sauces by the side of the stall. Food wise, the 'French
Fries', itself are pretty crunchy and not too oily. Even though the chilli sauce are
pretty normal stuff, but it still blend into the taste of the 'French Fries' nicely.
Next, the chef have added a generous portion of vegetables, which includes 'Peas',
'Corns' and 'Diced Carrots'. Though it's served cold but the vegetables are nicely
done and although it's merely vegetables but it's still far more better than merely
a few leaves of lettuce or a portion of salad. The set meal also comes with a Bun too.
The chef has also provided a tube of 'Butter' for the 'Bun'. I started off cutting a
hole on one of the sides and scoop a bit of 'Butter' into the 'Bun', before cutting
the whole 'Bun' into 2 and savour it. 'Bonjour'~~~ Although this is a tedious way of
savouring the 'Bun' but you could really taste the sweet 'Butter'.

As for the piece of 'Chicken Cutlet', the crispy texture itself have scored lots of
points already. The chef has also added a scoop of specially blended sauce over it.
Best of all, the succulent piece of 'Chicken Cutlet' is fantastically delicious.
The standards of the 'Chicken Cutlet' is so high that it really makes one wonder
why didn't the chef open his own 'Western Food Restaurant'. Well, only when there's
nice chef like these that will allow us to have delicious food at an affordable
price everyday.

By the way, let's take a quick glance at the menu of this stall.

So where can you give the delicious 'Western Food' a try?
The name of this stall would be 'Tasty Barbecue'(夜来香).
It's located inside 'Maxwell Food Centre'.

  • Opening Hours:
    Mondays - Fridays: 6pm - 10pm
    (Closed on Weekends)
  • There isn't a typo and the stall is opened for merely 20 hours only every single week.

An unexpected journey ...?

I have decided to travel to Clementi for lunch last week. After a satisfying meal at 'Clementi Market and Food Centre', I wanted to try one of the 'Soya Beancurd' shops nearby and that's when I came across this new bakery...

I ended up buying 4 different types of buns that day. Initially, I was thinking of
bringing them back to the office and have it for 'High Tea'. However, while waiting
for the free shuttle bus at the bus stop, my stomach started growling again and I
decided to pull out one of the bun and eat it. And this just so happen to be the...

'Custard Bun'
For a start, the buns that they are selling over here are pretty fluffy. On top of
that, initially I thought that they probably might be cutting down on the amount of
fillings that they have added to the buns, but they have proven me wrong. They are
pretty generous with all the not so sweet custard fillings. In fact, if you are not
careful enough, the custard might flow out of the bun easily. Best of all, since all
these buns were freshly baked and most of the tray were emptied within minutes,
therefore the fragrance and the taste of a newly baked bun was fantastically great. :D

'Ham & Cheese Bun'
This is pretty much similar to the 'Ham & Cheese Bun' out there. However, one good
thing about this bun would be the fact that the 'Ham' isn't overcook and it's not
melting into the bun thoroughly.

'Butter Bloom'
My experience with this is pretty much the same as the 'Custard Bun'. The rich and
tasty butter is unbeatable. However, either I am too slow or the fillings were meant
to be like this, the butter have blend into the bread completely, which doesn't really
matters that much, since it still remain to be pretty delicious.

'Golden Sands Bun'(黃金流沙包)
Back then, this seems to be a rare delicacy in Singapore. The salty egg yolk + custard
fillings are pretty good. The mixture of both sweet and salty ingredients make this bun
a must try for everyone. The taste of the bun gets even much more better when it remains
to be hot and milky. Just be careful with this bun and don't let the 'gold' flow out of
the bun and get wasted. (Now, it seems that I have found a new place to get my
'Golden Sands Bun' fix. :P)

Anyway, my friend was taking and uploading photos of this shop, the day before I went to
Clementi for lunch. Luckily she have uploaded photos of this place, otherwise I might
have miss something that is affordable and deliciously good. :D

The name of the bakery would be 'Baker Talent'(パン達人).
It seems that they have outlets island-wide and the above shows the
outlet located behind 'Clementi Mall', beneath Blk 442, Clementi Avenue 3.

  • Opening Hours:
    09:00 - 22:00 Daily
  • Despite eating 4 different buns with 10 - 15 minutes, I don't find the buns too heaty and probably I should just buy a few more for 'High Tea' the next time round. :P
  • By the way, if you are thinking of getting the buns for lunch, you better join the queue as early as possible. Probably it's due to the relatively low price that they are selling the individual buns (all of them are lower than a dollar each) and the taste of it, the queue during lunch hours can be crazily long. The waiting time gets longer and longer when there are customers that buy a big bag of buns at one go. =.="""
  • By the way, here's a list of the 'Baker Talent' outlets island-wide.

Appetizers buffet for FREE*

We, human beings are the greediest species on earth. Despite of the size of our stomach, when we are hungry, we will feel like eating different types of food. Therefore, it would be great if we can try a large variety of food at one go.

At this restaurant, you can give the Appetizers buffet a try for FREE*.
It includes japanese dishes like 'Soba', 'Takoyaki', 'Chawanmushi', etc.
Since it's free, the taste of most of the appetizers are pretty normal.
However, there are some exceptions too. I personally find the 'Onion Steak'
(Image on the top left hand corner) to be exceptionally good. The chefs
have added some spicy touch to the fried crunchy onion slices. The overall
taste and the texture of the onion slices are pretty good and interesting.

By the way, if you really want to give the Appetizers buffet a try, there
is this simple condition that you would have to fulfill. The condition
requires each customer to place an order for a Japanese Set Meal, isn't
that simple and easy? :P

'Eel & Clams Rice Box Set'
My favourite Japanese set Meal would be 'Eel Rice Box Set'. Therefore,
I ended up placing an order for this the other day. The delicious taste
that you are getting when you mix all the 3 main ingredients(Eel, clams
and cucumber) together are fantastically good. The crunchy cucumber and
the fresh ingredients are something that one could really look forward to.
(By the way, most of the set Meal at this restaurant are within the
price range of $10 - $30.)

The name of this restaurant would be 'Hifumi'.
The above shows the branch located in 'Plaza Singapura'.

Opening Hours:

Where did all the buns go?

Looking at the current market, if you are thinking of buying a bun, the price of a bun would range between a dollar to a few dollars. I kinda miss all the lowly priced and delicious buns. So where did all the affordable buns go?

Initially, I thought that this stall is selling some indulging dishes, therefore
there's always a queue of people queueing outside this stall. However, it ended up to
be a stall selling various types of buns only. Anyway, if you are thinking of
getting fanciful buns over here, you will be very disappointed. They are only making
simple buns like 'Kaya Bun', 'Curry Bun', 'Luncheon Meat Bun', etc... over here.
Since I still have some space inside my stomach, therefore I ended up buying a
'Curry Bun' and a 'Kaya Bun' too.

'Curry Bun'
As for the 'Curry Bun' over here, not only the price of the bun is relatively
cheap, but the fillings of the 'Curry Bun' are pretty good too. The 'Curry Bun'
has been loaded with a generous portion of potato curry and on top of that, the
nice fragrance of a newly baked 'Bun' is pretty attractive too. It's pretty hard
to come across such good 'Bun' in times like this.

So where can you give the 'Bun' a try?
The name of this stall would be
'Serangoon Garden Bakery & Confectionary'(實龍崗花園麵包西菓店).
It's located inside 'Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre', which is located near
'Chomp Chomp Food Centre'

Half a head of Curry (Closed)

Since I have managed to knock off early and rather than having my dinner at the coffee shop opposite, I decided to go for nicer stuff. I ended up having this for dinner...

'A sizzling Claypot of Fishhead Curry'
When I was working around this area, I have given the 'Curry Chicken' and 'Curry Fish
Meat' a try before. Since I haven't been eating 'Curry Fishhead' for a very very long
time, I have decided to do something crazy and I have ended up placing an order for
a Claypot of 'Curry Fishhead'. Even though it's merely half a fishhead, but the portion
is big enough for an individual. Anyway since all the Fishhead Curry are not prepared
upfront, that means upon ordering the 'Curry Fishhead' you will have to wait for
another 20 minutes or more for the food to be delivered to your table.

Here's a closer look of the 'Curry Fishhead'. Vegetables like 'Yam', 'Tau Pok'
(a type of fried Beancurd), 'Lady Finger' have been added into this dish.
And probably because all the ingredients aren't boiled for too long, therefore
most of the ingredients still have this crunchy touch. On top of that, the
sizzling thick curry is pretty yummy and it's a little bit spicy. However, the
excitement that I'm getting from the 'Curry' have slowly decrease as the pot
of Curry cool down. One should always finish up the Curry when it's hot. :P

Even though I'm getting half a fishhead only, but the portion that I'm
getting is pretty generous and the flesh of the fishhead is pretty fresh.
However, even though the flesh of the fishhead is pretty fresh, but
probably due to the fact that all the ingredients aren't cooked long
enough, therefore the taste of the 'Curry' haven't blend into the flesh
of the fishhead completely. The Curry have blend into the vegetables
completely, but not for the flesh of the Fishhead, which is a big
disappointment. For a 'Fishhead Curry', this have definitely failed
miserably, but if you considered it as 2 separate dish, it have actually
fared pretty good.

So where can you give the delicious 'Curry' a try?
The name of this stall would be 'Marina South Curry Delight'(濱海南咖喱魚頭).
It's located inside 'Tiong Bahru Market'.

  • Opening Hours:
    11:30 - 21:00 Daily
  • Besides for 'Curry Fishhead', they are preparing some other 'Curry' dishes like 'Curry Chicken', 'Curry Mutton', 'Curry Pork Ribs' and 'Curry Vegetables'.
  • By the way, if business was good, they might be closed before 7pm. So in order to avoid disappointment, you probably want to pop by the stall very early. :D
