Went off to try the relatively new Co Nga Crab Noodles House for their Banh Canh Cua. It’s just a short walk down the same street as Banh Mi Thit!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was $18 a bowl for half a Sri Lankan crab, and there’s also the whole crab or no crab options. The broth that was made with lots of dried shrimps had a thicker and slightly stickier consistency than the type we’re more familiar with, but we still found it enjoyable. Crab was fresh and sweet, and surprisingly had quite a lot of roe! The thick tapioca noodles were smooth with a bit of a chew, while other ingredients you’ll find inside are shimeiji mushrooms, sliced pork, pork rib, Vietnamese fish cakes & a quail egg. You don’t really have to worry about the trouble of deshelling the crab as they came partially deshelled, hence easier to eat! I’d be back to have this again, but probably just the normal bowl that comes with prawns.

Journey to the East yesterday means we could stop by Da Dong for breakfast! Haven’t had their prawn noodles in a long time and that first sip of broth was just ultra shiok. Don’t expect the intense prawn-y sort of base here, but you’ll get one that’s very well-balanced with a garlicky crustacean sweetness. Sadly no refills, so we always make sure we savour every drop 😂 Damn good!

This we weren’t sure how it would be, but was good too! Bee hoon was done soft and tossed in their homemade chilli that’s pretty fragrant. Quite addictive I must say! Came with fishcake slices and Teochew meatballs. The bigger portion is at $6.

Had an ultra comforting breakfast at Yun Heng! Tucked in a corner of Lucky Plaza, they have just about 4 mains on the menu and is an affordable spot in Orchard.

We were most excited to try this and it didn’t disappoint. The hor fun was silky smooth, and while the broth looks plain, it was flavorful with a very nice mellow sweetness. I’m all for heavier seasoned food usually, but this was super enjoyable. Only gripe was the use of frozen prawns, but otherwise, we loved this bowl! There’s also a bigger portion at $8.

First time trying their red mushroom lor mee that comes in a broth with a pink hue. Tastes pretty similar to their classic white lor mee, but with this additional earthiness! Enjoyed this paired with their signature chilli.

First time trying their Ca Fen and didn’t expect to enjoy it this much! The savory starchy broth was ultra comforting and I liked that there’s different bits of ingredients mixed in. Would have liked just a tad more generous portion of ingredients though, just like their lor mees. Good to share this since it may get a slight bit heavy half way.

Didn’t have that good an impression the first time we tried Jiak Song’s dry mhk, but we gave it another shot at their new Bugis outlet and enjoyed it quite a fair bit! The mhk pieces we had this time didn’t have that doughy centres that we experienced previously. These were smooth and cooked thoroughly, while retaining a nice chew! Was surprised that the dark sauce came with a unique wok hei sort of aftertaste too, which helped to enhance the whole bowl. We found the sauce quite average the last time though, so perhaps the consistency can be better worked on.

The side bowl of soup had an egg mixed in and was comforting. Must say though, that the portion is quite small, so go for a bigger bowl if you’re hungry!

Pretty satisfying dinner at Dumpling Darlings, though we did wish that we didn’t have to rush - they have a dining limit of 45 minutes. Thumbs up to the attentive service, really appreciated how the staff made sure our glasses were always refilled promptly!

Their XO Prawn Noodles had well-cooked egg noodles in their xo seafood sauce and soy tare. Enjoyed the lot of textures that you get here from the variety of toppings - tobiko, seaweed, crunchy fried shallots and spring onions. Prawns were fresh and the hanjuku egg that we added on was tasty, but only gripe is the small portion of carbs at the price. Don’t think this would be that filling. There’s the option to top up for more at $1.50.

I personally don’t think it’s worth a long wait for seats, and definitely recommend making a reservation. If you happen to be at their Circular Road outlet on the weekends or for lunch from Mon to Wed, there’s 30% off the bill with Burpple Beyond!

Spiced Pork Cubes Mee Pok from Toast Box in collab with Myojo Singapore. It has 3 spice levels for their homemade chilli oil - mild, spicy and fiery. Noodles were too soft for my liking though and it could definitely work with more sauce to coat the noodles more thoroughly. The pork cubes were marinated five-spiced style. This is available ala carte or as a set with a cup of barley drink.

Thank you @toastboxsg for the invite! ✨

PSA!!! Serangoon Gardens’ Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Pork Noodle has a new outlet in Ang Mo Kio. Uncle will be cooking here while his son-in-law will be helming the Gardens outlet. Popped by early this morning to get a bowl to start the day! Always enjoy the tender pork slices and pork livers, as well as the depth of the accompanying soup made with dried sole fish. My favourite’s still the soup mee kia cause of the not-as-punchy chilli sauce in the dry version here - will be coming by again soon for the soup!

You can pick bee hoon, tang hoon or purely soup for this bowl. Though the clams we had were not as big or plump as we expected, we loved that they were clean and had none of that sandy bits. The broth was clear yet flavourful without being too salty - which made for a very comforting and easy bowl to slurp on! There was that seafood sweetness in the broth and a pretty distinct touch of wine too. Had the tang hoon and it came in quite a good portion.

Huge menu here at Real Food, from starters of fresh soups, to pastas, burgers, noodles and pizzas, etc. Their dry dumpling noodles come with 6 plump dumplings and vegetables. A pity that the dumplings were cooked a bit under, so it was a little doughy, but taste wise it was pretty nice - the filling is made with a bunch of different ingredients and vegetables. They use thick noodles here and the sauce was fragrant!

Slow Bakes right next door is Real Food’s bakery - they have a whole range of buns, sourdoughs and loaves with vegan options. We saw several people eating from both sides as they allow cross ordering.

All is good with a cup of hot matcha latte 🍵✨ IG @cweizhi
