Probably the most affordable beef bowl in town currently; $10 nett and in Sengkang just beside Ranggung LRT Station.
To summarize, the experience I had with the Hanging Beef Bowl was pretty similar to the burger I had previously here — it seemed to carry potential but needed fine-tuning. Thought the meat to rice ratio was decent, and that I liked the crispy fried bits atop the rice that gave it a good crunch. The beef was decent considering the price tag, but it is a little chewy though comes with a hint of smokiness from the grilling. Sous-vide egg wasn't really flowy; more molten and bearing solidification and that the rice was a tad clumpy at parts. I did enjoy the brown sauce that was drenched onto the other components — it keeps things from going too dry here but I am not sure if some folks might prefer a more Japanese-style sauce instead? It's not bad for $10, especially given that I would say this is quite good if you are living around the area and don't want to travel far for a beef bowl, but I would say it does need to be refined for others to head down to the area to try it.
Spending my New Year's Eve lunch away from the crowds at this hideout in Hougang that I had been visiting since my Poly days; nowhere near school but had always been worth the effort to travel to.
Had always loved their grilled dishes which I find are very well-executed; the Grilled Chicken Thigh was a dish that I had never fail to order every single time here. The Grilled Pork Chops is also very well done; glazed and grilled, the meat comes glistening and tender with a smoky flavour — the meat itself carrying no traces of unchewable, fatty bits here. Mash was chunky with traces of real potatoes used here; not those uninspiring instant mixes that is used here with buttered greens at the side for a balanced feel.
Occasionally there are days that I would come to Chef's Hats craving for pasta instead of the Grilled Chicken Thigh; this would be what I order to simply have the best of both worlds. This comes with a choice of a few different types of pasta and a small selection of sauces; opted for cream sauce and penne for my order today. The cream sauce is barely overwhelming and nowhere near jelak — still creamy but on the lighter side as it coats the penne pasta that is done al-dente. The Grilled Chicken chunks were juicy and tender; pretty flavoursome without being greasy. One of the dishes that I find comfort in.
Cookies and Cream was unexpectedly good! Their shop is tucked in a rather "ulu" area but it was worth the traveling to such good cookies&cream! Should have ordered double scoop 😭 P.S. Tried their bold flavours like Chilli Crab and it tasted EXACTLY like chillicrab just in icecream form 🙂
Located at a corner of a hawker shop, this stall serves a really good burger. The price is worth it considering the good quality of the beef patty. The meal comes with fries, bacon, caramelized onions, and delicious cheese sauce that you would have to pay extra in other burger places. Other options in the menu are equally enticing. Definitely would come here again for the food.

They are always carrying a simle when cooking, each and every plate is filled with passion and love.
Thank you Uncle & Auntie for your Oyster Omelette & Fried Kway Teow.
I truly enjoyed the food you served to me.
This is a place you'll go to when you're in the mood to explore new places in the neighborhood on a Saturday afternoon. Located in the deep end of the food court, Flambé serves pasta, burgers, steaks and fish fare. I had the beef patty done medium rare marinated with a hint of chimichurri. It went really well with the caramelized onions, bacon and cheese giving you a burst of flavors. I can totally imagine this served at nicer environments at double the price. Satisfaction!
Yummy Chicken Roulade stuffed with sundried tomatoes & mushroom served with mashed potato, preserved limes finished with rosemary garlic sauce! 😋
