Food That Worth to Try at Hong Lim Food Court

I quite often visit the Hong Lim food court and there are few food stalls recommended by the local food bloggers. I tried some of them and these are the ones that I personally think it is worth trying. Since I am going to head to Chinatown for work, I will have some of them again, and try some other stalls that I have not been trying yet.

Jin Hua Fish Soup

Unsung hero, I liked this fish soup noodle over the famous stall in this same food court. I order the clear soup or with milk without additional cost. Furthermore, this stall did not charge me for changing my noodle to yee mee. Besides that, I like their soup base which is a stronger flavour compared to other fish soup stalls.

I cannot find another better fish soup in this food stall that is not always in a long queue. Understanding from the Google review, this stall rates at 2.8 with some bad reviews. However, I think the preferences are a very subjective matter. The generous portion of the fish meat and great soup base made me always go back to this stall whenever I wanted to have fish soup for lunch or dinner.

Other fish soup stalls that are popular or famous in this same food court are:

  • Fan Ji Bittergourd Fish Soup (#02-70)
  • 全香美 Fish Soup (#02-35)
  • 老K鱼汤 (Lao K Fish Soup) (#02-23)

Address: #02-38, Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, 531A Upper Cross St, Singapore 051531.

SL II Muffin

I liked both their coconut tart and muffins. For muffins, I would recommend trying the chocolate chips and apple cinnamon. I did try their other flavours too, however, I personally would pick these two as my favourite. Do expect a long queue during lunchtime. There is no queue in the early morning but the choices of muffins are limited because they are still baking.

Next, I would like to try Granny’s pancake (#01-58) which is located opposite this muffin stall. Since it opens early in the morning which gives me a good option for breakfast too.

Address: #02-32, Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, 531A Upper Cross St, Singapore 051531.

Ji Ji Noodles- Since 1965

They served a generous portion of ingredients, although I was hoping to get 3 wantons instead of 2. Maybe, if they can replace the deep-fried wantons with normal ones, I will get 4. Their wanton, although is not as big as HK styled wanton noodle, it is still slightly bigger than small-sized wanton that you may find in KL. I guess, if I add up all the 4 wantons, maybe it is still the same. The ingredients inside the wantons are normal and did not see if there is any water chestnut included. Personally, I think adding the water chestnut together with minced meat can enhance the eating experience.

The noodle is thicker than the usual wanton noodle, which makes me think that is how it distinguishes itself from other stalls. And, the good thing is it is able to maintain the chewiness of the noodle. Wanton noodles should be cooked al-dente. After I took some time to take some photographs and mixed the noodle with the dark sauces, the noodle was not soggy. I cannot imagine if the noodle turned soggy.

Another stall that sells thicker wanton noodles is the restaurant called Wanton Fu at ARC380, Jalan Besar. Another wanton noodle stall selling in Hong Lim food court that I want to try is from the stall called Belly Lucky Noodles (#02-25).

Address: #02-48/49/50 Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, 531A Upper Cross St, Singapore 051531.

Coffee Break

I am delighted to find out Coffee Break has another stall, closer to my office. Their coffee is sock-brewed the traditional way, which is less time-consuming. Sock-brewed coffee is something that Singaporeans are very familiar with, and it is inexpensive.

Address: 531A Upper Cross Street, #02-41, Hong Lim Food Centre, Singapore 051531.

Day 2: Top View at Beomeosa Temple

I was very happy and satisfied with the autumn foliage that I saw at the Beomeosa Temple. At that point of time, I wished more to see throughout my ten days in South Korea. This picture was taken when I stood at one side of the Daeungjeon Hall, facing the mountain right opposite of the temple. I took a deep breath to enjoy the natural air. It was a cooling and slightly cloudy on that day. It rained drizzling a little while.

For a short moment, I sought for a peaceful mind.

The visitors were freely walking around the temple compound, exploring the beauty of the place and make prayers, while for me, I took some time to immerse myself into the atmosphere and the thoughts in my mind.

Day 1: Missions Accomplished In Busan

My planned first day in Busan mostly be covered by arriving safely at Incheon International Airport, Seoul, South Korea, taking the KTX train to Busan city from Seoul Station and visiting Gwangalli Beach and Gwangandaegyo bridge. The planned dinner at my hostel area was easily located and satisfied.

A lot of time spent on travelling from one place to another place. This made first day seemed to be little unproductive and I missed the visitation to Kyungsung University district and Yongso-ro food street after my dinner which I covered later of the days.

However, It was a quite fulfilling day for my solo trip.

Acting Cute?

말해!뭐해?(Tell me! What are you doing?), said my client. Well, he saw I was listening to this song when I paused the playlist from my Note3 and he said he was listening the same song as me. I was rolling my eyes 🙄 and he further showed his playlist to confirm it. It was kind of an ‘huh’ situation that I gave more 🙄🙄🙄 expression.

Don Your Personal Pie Club


It is a quarter Chicken Pie bought by my cousin from Singapore when she travelled to Kuala Lumpur. I liked this chicken pie so much when I first had it 1-2 years back.

The chicken pie consisted of corn, carrot, potato, quarter boiled egg, mushrooms and of course chicken. The pastry was crispy and taste was very good. The fillings inside was flavourful and not too strong of spices. Good try!

Location:
Don – Your Personal Pie Club (China Square Central), 20 Cross Street, #01-34 China Square Central, Singapore.
