Alert ⚠️ Support and enjoy the awesome chicken rice while you can. This hidden gem is closing in one week, and they currently have no plans in relocating.

Famous for its poached chicken with the authentic jelly under the chicken skin, Tiong Bahru Hainanese Curry Rice & Chicken Rice also provides free chicken soup for every person at the table. And every bowl of this clear soup comes with some chunks of chicken meat, not forgetting to mention - it is refillable.

Some of the popular side dishes include Salad Youtiao ($3.50) and Homemade Tofu ($3.50). Of course, if you want to stay focused like me, just order quarter poached chicken ($11) and quarter roasted chicken ($11) to indulge the best of both worlds.

When I'm seriously craving for a bowl of good prawn noodles, I have three places on my list and one of them is the Zion Road Big Prawn Noodles aka ηŸ₯ε‘³ι²œ Fresh Taste Big Prawn Noodles, located at the Zion Riverside Food Center.

I'd always go for the dry version to enjoy the chilli-coated noodles separately from the umami-packed broth with those gigantic wild-caught sea prawns. πŸ˜‹

It's hard to find an eatery that does everything right. So glad that I stumbled upon Chye Kee Goldhill Roasted Chicken Rice, located near Novena MRT Station. They serve delicious roast chicken, well-executed roast pork, tender roast duck and nicely-caramelized char siew at a wallet-friendly price point. 😘

Chye Kee Goldhill is one of my favourite food spots to get a good plate of tasty roast chicken rice with tender roast duck ($7). 🀀

Bbq chicken wings ($1.40/pc) and satay ($0.70/stick) from Chong Pang Huat. 😚 With multiple branches over Singapore, one of them can be easily found at Zion Riverside Food Center.

It's my 3rd visit to 88 Hong Kong Roast Meat Specialist but the famous crispy and savoury roast meat (sio bak) is sold out this time by lunch time! 😲 Nonetheless, I'm still satisfied with the perfectly caramelized and tender char siew as well as the flavourful roast duck. ☺️

It’s raining again… but that doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm to eat good food! 🀭

Warming myself up on this chilling evening with Teochew-style bak kut teh from Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha. Besides the crowd-pleasing tasty and peppery Spare Ribs Soup, the Braised Tau Kua (Beancurd) is a must-try! πŸ˜‹

I also love how Ya Hua allows us to choose between fatty or lean Braised Pork’s Trotters. We had to go with the leaner one to look after our waistline but if fats mean flavour to you then whatever floats your boat. 😘

This depicts a beautiful plate of nasi lemak - fluffy butterfly pea flower rice (no additional cost), peanuts + ikan bilis, choice of egg (sunny side up or omelette), and the big chicken wing. All for just $5!!

The chicken wing is fresh, tender and full of juice. Big love for the crispy chicken skin that is not oily at all. 😘

My favourite part of dining at Sedap is that I get to enjoy the free flow selections of sambal! 😍

Chicken chop with crackling crispy skin and tender-soft juicy meat on top of the intensely flavourful noodles that had totally soaked up all the goodness from the seafood broth. Squeeze that lime and perfect the taste by stirring in the fragrant spicy chilli for a real good kick! 😍

Happy 54th Birthday Singapore! πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ It can't be more apt to indulge in some local dishes on the national birthday. 😚 Ya ya it's just me finding excuses to eat.

This sharing platter "Bao Ka Liao" ($32.90), which means 'encompass everything' in Hokkien, showcases the famous Rolex watch chef Warong Kim's Hokkien Mee, Tenderfresh's Fried Spring Chicken as well as Popiah by Ah Boy from Good Chance Popiah. πŸ€“
.
The Hokkien Mee definitely stood out for its noodles that had entirely absorbed the robust and thick broth made from prawn shells and other secret ingredients. And kimslaw just goes so well with the crispy fried spring chicken - nobody can disagree with me on that! πŸ˜†

If you love roast duck, Roast Irish Duck from Duckland has to be a must-try! πŸ˜‹
|
Absolutely tender and full of flavours, the duck has the right amount glistening oiliness with the skin still slightly crispy.

Fret not! These Irish ducks have no foul gamey taste and smell, all thanks to the high quality care and controlled diet. Thus, these ducks are considerably petite for the price tag - $50 for whole duck and $28 for half duck.πŸ˜„

Once in a while I crave for that old-school chicken chop that I used to have when I was little. I'm so glad that many hawkers, including the one I just visited - Tasty Barbeque 倜ζ₯香 (#01-94) at Maxwell Food Centre, are still serving this simple and yummy chicken chop with crinkle fries + fluffy soft bun with butter for $7.50. 😘 Yes, I'm reliving childhood memories.
