Soup was not as rich and flavourful, would be better if it was less oily. Pork ribs were tender but portion of both prawns and pork ribs were small. Still, was thankful for a comfortingly hot bowl of prawn noodles on a rainy day
A bowl of medium sized freshwater prawns will set you back about $5.50 while the ngoh hiang is appx $10. They have pork ribs, pig's tails etc too. Place was bustling with activities when we reached around 12:30pm, just in time for lunch.
I went for bee hoon which is slightly thicker than those thin version others are offering. Personally felt the soup was underwhelming and slightly oily but then there are those who might prefer this. Thoughtful gesture on their part as they have handmade paper bowls for one to throw away prawn shells.
A must have! Juicy mid joints tossed in marmite. You'll get hooked & addicted
Miss: sambal potato leaves/stingray.
An oddly satisfying meal nonetheless, all thanks to my favorite company. 😊😘💕
Top grade Mao Shan Wang from Pahang, Malaysia.
Sweet that comes with a little bitterness, definitely worth a try!
Official opening is on 3rd July and durian ice cream will be available that day as well !
Thank you @wheretoeatsg and @ministry_of_durian for having us and thank you @uricacxy for extending the invite 😘
Season of the King of Fruits is here!! And a new store @ministry_of_durian has just opened providing Durian Lovers another place to drop by or call for delivery. With grand opening on 3 July 2016, they will launch dessert such as Mao Shan Wang (MSW) ice cream too. But till then we shall gorge on the durians.
It's my first time trying Red Prawn and I can see why some prefer this over MSW. Slightly pinkish flesh that's slightly creamy but has a bittersweet taste!
One can never get enough of this humble, totally nameless eating house, unless you looked at the signage that is way above, and unlit. Their frogs are nice and huge, firm muscle and utterly tender. The sauce, is nice and thick without being too salty, great for with the plain smooth porridge that you just have to order. They have great BBQ dishes too, such as stingrays and squids. So be sure to come at odd hours or early, for it gets pretty hard to find a parking slot or table when it's peak hours.
Ft. Tom Yum risotto & laksa lasagna. Was attracted to the 1 for 1 weekday lunch deal but was greatly disappointed by the taste. The tom yum risotto lacked of the distinct hot and sour flavour , and it tasted more similar to laksa . Mediocre laksa lasagne is a much better choice compared to the prior one
2 combination meat with rice cost $7. Almost twice the price compared to the other roast meat stalls. Some might say it is not worth it. But this plate promises quality of the char siew and even the rice. The chilli and plum sauce goes very well with the meat too. If you haven't try it before, do make a trip down to the main outlet at macpherson to taste it for yourself!

Blackened, beautiful CHAR SIEW courtesy of Kay Lee - honestly befitting "Char" namesake! There is no gimmicky sweet sauce used pretentiously to hide bad pork here. The Roasted Duck has more to learn from its black brother - go for char siew portions alone, no regrets!
