Singapore Hawker Food – Part 3

I have been trying to blog differently recently by having a theme. To support local Singaporean hawker food, I set up a new theme called Singapore Hawker Food, tried out the local food shared by Singaporeans on social media and shared my opinions. I am sure you are the same as me, would like to know the views from a non-food blogger’s or Youtuber’s point of view.

I am glad that one or two people are willing to eat with me so that I can try different food and give more food reviews. I wish we could continue to try more food together and share our thoughts. Also, I am happy whenever we are together enjoying our food.

I may be active on Instagram and Facebook Page, and I try the food by myself without getting sponsorship or partnership. It is purely based on my opinions and preferences. No offences.

Coffee Break

I tried their breakfast set as well; I ordered the kaya butter toast with a cup of hot drink.

Address: Hong Lim Food Centre, 531A Upper Cross St, Singapore 051531.

Ah Fatt Fishball Noodle

Noodle is al-dente, surprisingly. I liked it. It is a dry version, so I expected it to be in a mix of chilli sauce, oil and vinegar. The mixture’s taste is typical; the amount of the sauce is just right to cover the mee pok. Sometimes, when I order the dry noodle, the sauce tends to be flooded in the bowl. The soup is a little salty, so I left one side.

The fishballs are nice, bouncy and fresh. The fishcake is a little hard compared with the fishball. I do not know whether the fishballs or fishcakes are handmade. On another visit a long time back, I ordered fishball noodles. It consists of four fishballs, one fried fishball, a few tiny slices of fishcakes, and some minced pork.

Kang Le Fried Prawn Noodle

The thick bee hoon and yellow noodle are used for cooking the Hokkien mee. I like the level of wetness of this plate of Hokkien mee where I could see little broth at the bottom of the plate. The top part is dry yet flavourful. It is full of wok hei (the heat from the wok). The ingredients are pretty standard across all stalls. It comes with medium-sized prawns and squids. I liked the chilli paste that was used to mix with the noodle. “It is superb”, said the auntie.

Soi 19, Thai Wanton Noodle

I ordered a bowl of regular and large in size. I am sure you can differentiate the normal and large from the picture above. A large wanton noodle comes with char siew (barbecue pork), two slices of Thai fish sausages, two fried wantons and another two wantons in a bowl of peppery soup.

The noodle is springy, dry, not oily, and does not have extra sauces left in the bowl, so I suggest that you quickly mix it with the chilli flakes and fish sauce before it turns drier. The noodle is well coated with their seasonings that I think it is good to go without extra fish sauce. But, the fish sauce will give a different flavour.

They give a generous amount of green vegetables, making this wanton noodle healthier than the Chinese-style wanton noodle.

Bai Nian Dou Fu

I am unsure if the People’s Park Food Complex stall is still available. But, their popularity at the food court here, I do not think they have moved out. I love to eat yong tau foo; it is healthy food. This stall has several people queueing during lunchtime to buy their famous yong tau foo. It comes in a small or big bowl. The yong tau foo ingredients are fixed, but you can add more ingredients by paying extra money. They serve one type of noodles only, the vermicelli. Also, they do the yong tau foo in soup based. There is no dry version.

Green Sky Fried Kway Teow

Fried Kway Teow is quite good and full of wok hei. It is so surprising that it is located at the Bedok Food Centre. The fried kway teow is slightly wet, still flavourful, it is not the oily type that after eating for a while I feel jelak (sick of eating). A reasonable portion of ingredients.

Address: No. 1, Bedok Road, #01-14, Bedok Food Centre, 469572, 469572.

Burger & Lobster

The original lobster roll with fries and salad

I gave my first try of their lobster roll after a year the Burger & Lobster established in Singapore. It was always a long queue at the Jewel Changi’s outlet when it was launched. During my visit, there was no queue. However, I was unsure whether it would be good to make a booking before dropping by.

The overall dining time was quite short because the portion of the lobster roll was not big, but it took some time to finish the fries. The lobster’s meat was fresh, well-tasted and I would prefer to go without the butter for the real lobster taste. For the bun, it smelt good, crispy from the outside, chewy from the inside. It was a great pair with the butter.

The whole food presentation is simple, but the view that surrounds the restaurant is great. The waitress gave us a table with the view that facing the fountain from the rare angle, quiet enough to enjoy the food, listen to the water falling from the sky… I made a video during my visit too!

If time permitted, it is definitely a good place to hang out for a drink and sit there to read a book too. Before I wrap up, let me finish my write-up with a share of a picture of the drink that I ordered.

Hawker Food

Recently I have been trying a few of the hawker food and I would like to share some of them here.

Kang Le Fried Prawn Noodle, Changi Village Hawkers Centre, Singapore.
Address: 2 Changi Village Rd, Singapore 500002.
The hawker centre is full with people during my visit on one sunny Saturday after my marathon. When I approached this food stall, there were six plates of fried prawn noodle in queue. The cook prepared all the fried prawn noodle at one go for seven portion including mine. At first, I am a bit worries about the quality of the fried noodle because he cooks in big portion. When the fried noodle is served, they put the chili paste and it is superb as per said by auntie, his wife. She said the chili paste is homemade and she even told the foreigner the chili paste is better than other chilies.   I’m not sure if it is home made or not.

Kway Teow Soup, Eastlink Food Court, Tampines, Singapore.
Address: 8 Tampines Central 1, Singapore 529543.
Although I feel its slightly pricey for a bowl of noodle which some minced meat, fish cakes and fish balls, I feel satisfied for having a bowl of hot soup after a long day in the cold office. The soup broth tastes normal in the beginning and as it cooled off, I am able to taste the sweetness of the soup broth. I almost finished the soup. The uncle cooks with care as how I see him cooking for the first two customers.

The Western Co, Singapore.
Address: 30 Foch Rd, Singapore 209276.
Our colleague wanted to try this food stall which offers TWC Raclette Chicken which waited for an hour. The making process is more interesting than the chicken itself. The amount of cheese on top of the chicken chop is just right, however, the overall taste does not really match or blend well.

Poulet

Poulet, Singapore.
Amazing French Roast Chicken.

Dinner time with two lovely girls. They picked this restaurant and it was my first visit. Being the first timer, I let both of the girls to pick the best ones, however, it was a little late when we reached the restaurant and some of the dishes finished.

We ordered the classic lemonade and ginger lemonade. The top view of the drink looks pretty good with the restaurant’s name as the background. I have no idea why the ginger lemonade has a piece of mint on it.

The two girls ordered the countryside mushroom soup, creamy and tasty.

I try something different that what is recommended. The Pissaladière – it is a classic dish from Provence.  I tried the Pissaladière de Poulét,  a puff pastry with its golden crust that was crispy to the bite. It has two types, I chose the chicken and another one is the mushroom. It is something unique to me, light yet filling.

My friend chose the signature dish, Poulet. The chicken or the drumstick looks tenders with the thick sauce on it. I believe it must be a very nice dish and it has a very good review on it.

Next, my another friend ordered the Salad de Canard Fume, a garden salad with smoked duck slices and raspberry dressing. The orange wedges and roasted pine nuts lent it a tangy flavour.

Since it was getting late and we did not spend much time to enjoy the food and drink to the fullnest. However, it is still a good dining experience here. Next time, if I visit the restaurant again, I will make sure I will try the Poulet and be there early to enjoy the signature dish to the fullness.

Address: Terminal 3, Changi International Airport, 65 Airport Blvd, Singapore.
