Not a must to be oily...

We tend to link deep fried food with oily and greasy stuff. However, that isn't the case over here.

'Ngoh Hiang'(五香)
Probably I have picked and ordered too much ingredients, therefore the helpers of this stall
thought that there's at least 2 of us sharing this big plate of 'Ngoh Hiang'. Therefore, she
almost gave me 2 plates of 'Fried Bee Hoon' and 2 plates of special 'Chilli Sauce', on top of
the big plate of ingredients that I have ordered. Luckily she corrected the mistake herself
else I will be staring at 2 big plates of 'Fried Bee Hoon'.

Yes, I do agree that the plate of warm 'Fried Bee Hoon' do taste and smells good while
eating, but it doesn't have the 'WOW' factor as compared to the...

plate of ingredients.
I have given ingredients like 'Prawn Cracker', 'Century Egg', 'Ngoh Hiang', 'Chinese
Sausage', 'Fried Prawn' and 'Fried Cuttlefish Roll' a try that day. Most of the deep
fried goodies over here have this nice crispy texture that isn't too oily. Probably
they have a oil filtering machine that helps them to filter out all the excessive oil.
On top of that, I love the taste of the fresh ingredients, especially the chewy
'cuttlefish'. Anyway, the plate of 'Chilli sauce' that comes with it is a (+) too. They
have also added peanuts into the sauce that gives you this spicy, sweet and crunchy
sensation as you dip the ingredients into the sauce before you pop them into your mouth.
:D However, the biggest drawback over here would be the price. It can easily go beyond
S$10 or more if you are not careful enough.

So where can you give the 'Ngoh Hiang' a good try?
The name of this stall would be 'Xin Sheng Gor Hiong Prawn Cracker'(新生五香虾饼).
It's located inside 'Boon Lay Place Food Village'.
