📍Yi Jia Chun (The Arcade)
- Pig Stomach and Pork Ribs Soup 豬肚排骨湯

Peppery pig stomach soup warms one up on a rainy day~

Plenty of pig stomach and pork ribs, nicely prepared, generous portion and no unpleasant gamey smell!

But be prepared to leave that place smelling like I don’t know, I need febreze…

Damage: $7 (without rice)

📍Ah Gong Minced Pork Noodle (Maxwell Food Centre)
- Signature Claypot Bak Chor Mee (Dry) 自創砂鍋麵🍜

Quite disappointed for the bcm was lacking that hint of black vinegar, all I tasted of was just chilli and a bit of soya sauce.

On top of that, the overpowering pork lard, and mushy meepok (probably cos constant warming in the claypot), just made this meal a little surfeiting to stomach.

The minced meat balls and wantons were alright, decent.

The portion was quite small, made me feel like getting a dessert or something to fill my stomach and to clear my palate…hmm…

Observed queue during lunch hr, and the uncle was very friendly, maybe the bcm didn’t make it to the std that day or maybe the soup one do better than the dry one, I’m not sure but well…

Damage: $4.50

📍老吳記羊肉湯 Mutton Soup (AMK)
- 羊肉湯 Mutton Soup🍲

Rainy day calling for a bowl of piping hot mutton soup to warm one up~

Nice herbal mutton soup, can smell it even from far~

Soup was well balanced (neither diluted nor overpowering), ginger and coriander definitely play impt roles, not forgetting to mention the sweetness from the goji berries…

The mutton was tender, the gamey smell from the mutton was also mild, at least to me this was acceptable, and the stall was generous with the portion of mutton, at this price, what a steal indeed!

Though came by at off peak period (at abt 3pm+), waited for a good one hour for it, can’t imagine during lunch hour…

Overall, a value-for-$ mutton soup that I wouldn’t mind coming back for (but maybe not that frequent cos of the wait)…

Damage: $5.50 (without rice)

📍Ming Shan Mutton Soup (Chinatown Complex)
- Mutton Rib Soup🍲

The mutton was tender and a little gamey (which I like), in a good way, not too gamey, go pleasantly well with ginger and coriander~ Generous portion of meat too!

The herbal soup was deep and sweet, sweetness from the goji I believe.

Overall, this was good, feeling warm after having a bowl of mutton soup, and definitely value-for-money!

Would revisit this stall!

📍No Name Hainanese Curry Rice (Beo Crescent)
- Hainanese Pork Chop🍖
- Fried Prawns🍤
- Cabbage🥗
- Sunny Side-up🍳

The pork chop belongs to the thin and crispy type, can’t really taste or even see the meat, more like a pork-crackling I would say. It’s not bad but I prefer a thicker / meaty pork chop though.

The prawns were the must-order, like it crispy and the seasoning was good (not too salty) but really complement well with the rice and curry sauce!

The cabbage was pretty soft, and the sunny side-up with running yolk, nothing to complain, decent~

Last but not least the curry sauce, not that spicy, just the spice to add a little kick, and it’s quite diluted, not ask thick as I expected, at least makes one feel less heavy and less sinful, not bad…

Be prepared to queue for a good 30min for this during lunch hour…

Damage: $5.50 (excluding coffee)

📍Arcade Fish Soup (Arcade)
- Fish Soup (add veg)🍲

All-time fav, best on a rainy day, still good even on a sunny day.

Guess the fish was batang fish, tender (not mushy) and sweet (not legit sweet but is fresh seafood kind of sweet, u know what I mean).

The fried garlic and chilli cannot be missed~ The chilli is spicy and refreshing at the same time cos of the lime, yum!

Super long queue during lunch hr, be early to avoid the crowd!

Damage: $7

📍Coffee Break (Amoy St)
- Kopi’o kosong☕️

Not the cheapest Kopi’o kosong you can find at Amoy St but still, their coffee was pretty good, robust enough and that coffee aroma~

In need of this for afternoon boost.

Damage: $1.60

📍Tong Fong Fatt Chicken Rice (Telok Ayer Interim Market)
- Chicken Rice🍗

It’s been a while since I last had chicken rice, since there’s no queue that day and saw PM Lee’s photo at the stall, thought of giving it a try.

When it comes to chicken rice, usually go for 雞尾肉(should be chicken thigh if I’m not wrong) as the texture taste like drumstick but at no extra cost, chicken rice hack okay~

The chicken was indeed tender, the soya sauce was also quite on point, goes well with the rice. The rice was distinct and separate, really like nothing to pick on.

Perhaps, just the soup, a little too oily that is...

You may also help yourself to the chilli, ginger and dark sweet soya sauce, the chilli (quite spicy to my surprise) like up the chicken rice to another level.

Overall, quite a satisfying meal, wouldn’t mind having this again...

Damage: $3.50

📍Hjh Maimunah Mini (Hong Leong Building)
- Chicken + 2 sides

Yummy Malay food eh~ the chicken and sides are well cooked, seasoning wise quite well-balanced, not too heavy/ bland...

The gravy (adding that coconut fragrance) and chilli are a-must!

Like the different types of chilli they have, tried three of them and all tasted distinctly different!

Light orange chilli being the spicier one, then the middle chilli tasted spicy & a little sour (lime?) and the sambal tasted a little on the sweeter note.

Filling and satisfying lunch, no wonder so long queue~

Damage: $6.50

📍Clifford Centre NTUC Foodfare
- Korean Spicy Chicken Soup🥘

Pretty disappointed by the soup, as plain as it looks, not much ingredients inside, a few pieces of tofu, few pieces of marinated chicken meat (really like few pcs), some enoki mushrooms and kimchi and that’s about it...

I think I was full from the soup and rice...

Taste wise, it’s okay but just, perhaps I can get something better...

Damage: $6.50

📍Chiew Kee Noodle House 釗記油雞麵家⁣⁣
- Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle 油雞麵🍗⁣⁣
- Dumplings Soup (3 Dumplings) 水餃湯🥟⁣⁣
Generally, I’ll eat the skin when it comes to soya sauce chicken, roasted chicken or fried chicken...😋⁣
Who don’t eat the skin???😅⁣

Tender chicken that was well marinated, and the noodle was springy without that alkaline smell, quite on point eh!

The dumpling filling includes mushrooms, prawn and minced meat paste, like the fragrance and chewiness, yum~

Damage: $6
