Round Market Tampines Prawn Noodle, Singapore.
The pork rib prawn noodle is sold out. The soup broth smell was great on the day before when I visited this food court during lunch time for the Sarawak Kolo Mee. The queue was long too during that time. My colleague and I believe the noodle must be great too, judging by the smell, queue and people sitting around the area are either eating prawn noodle or kolo mee.
So, I tried this stall with my colleague on his last day. It turned out to be a bit disappointed as the soup broth is not fantastic as we thought. But I am not sure, it is because it is not pork rib prawn noodle. The ingredients and portion of the noodle are generous. It gives 3 prawns and plenty of pork meat. Still good and worth to try. Wish to have a time to go there try the pork rib noodle.

Rating: 3/5. Delicious, tasty and generous with ingredients. Slightly disappointed with the soup broth, maybe will try one more time.
Rocher Beancurd House, Geylang, Singapore.
After the dinner, we went to the next shop to have our desserts. There was a short queue when we reached. So, I took this picture when we were queuing. They won an award before this.
It is great to have a bowl of warm, smooth and silky Tau Foo Fah (beancurd). The sweetness level is just right, no need to tell, less sugar or something. Some patrons stop over by the roadside to by this Tau Foo Fah. They sell other snacks as well, if you pass by this area, you can drop by and try. They do have other branches.
Address: 745 Geylang Road, Singapore.
Rating: 3/5. Good, silky and warm beancurd in town that is good for breakfast and after meal desserts.
Nasi Padang Punggol, Century Square, Tampines, Singapore.
This is not my first visit to the shop locates at the Century Square. Almost each visit here, I choose to have the set meal with fish. I try to eat fish whenever I go out. The Assam Fish with Sambal Kangkung comes with a piece of papadom.
I liked their Assam Fish and I think we can get the same fish at normal mixed rice stall. It seems to be a little expensive to eat it now. The portion shrinks. Is the real Nasi Padang in Punggol cheaper? Please introduce to me. Thank you.
Address: B1-22/23, Century Square, Tampines, Singapore.
Rating: 3/5. The taste is still delicious although the portion is getting lesser.
Kim Zen, Mid Valley, Malaysia.
I went to Mid Valley yesterday and spent my lunch at Kim Zen. It said to be affordable restaurant in Mid Valley and yes, it is. However, the taste is so-so. It is better you spend a bit more somewhere else. Kim Zen is a sister outlet to Kim Gary.
The only dimsum I liked was the barbecue chicken bun (char siew pao) but it is a little dry. It is not a choice for HK style char chan teng.
We ordered a bowl of dumpling soup noodle. It does not come with cheap price and the ingredients are very little. They give two medium small size of dumplings and half an egg. Imagine you have to eat the whole bowl of noodle with just 2 dumplings and half an egg and the soup broth is nothing fantastic.
I have no idea why me and other patrons are here…
Perhaps, this is one of the restaurants that has no queue during lunch hour. Improvement is greatly needed on their food quality and the range of the drinks. Cheap yet not worth a penny.
Address: G(E)-013, Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Rating: 1.5/5. The points are given to the barbecue pork bun and no-need-to-queue restaurant.
Sarawak Kolo Mee at Round Market, Tampines, Singapore.
Last week, during the lunch time, I went to the food court at the Round Market with my colleague. He introduced me the Sarawak Kolo Mee which he claims to be nice and delicious. We walked from our office to the market and it took us about 15 minutes walking time.
Upon reaching the food court, we looked for the table and he started queuing. It really needs a lot of patience to wait for a bowl of noodle. Just look at the picture’s timestamp and the queue.
I switched table and took another picture after 10 minutes of waiting. The queue is still long and my colleague’s turn is about there.
Finally, after 20 minutes our food is served, a plate of Sarawak Kolo Mee which consists of 3 fried wantons, 4 dumplings, some char siew (barbecue pork), some stewed pork and vegetable. It gives a bowl of clear soup. It gives generous amount of ingredient and I felt it is value for money.
I mixed the stewed pork’s sauce with some red chilies. The chilies are hot and if you cannot eat spicy then do not mix them all. The noodle’s texture is okay and I prefer not to cook until al-dente.
This kolo mee is a lot different than the actual kolo mee that I tried in Sarawak, Malaysia. Here is some of the old pictures of the kolo mee I tried back in Sarawak six years ago. Different ingredients and some mixed with dark soy sauce. All of them are nice 🙂
Address: 137A Tampines Street 11, Singapore.
Rating: 4/5. Delicious, tasty and generous with ingredients. The noodle can cook a bit more al-dente because I feel when it mixes with the stewed sauce, the noodle will become soggy.
