Geylang adventures

Geylang adventures

Since moving to Geylang, I’m determined to try and find all the hidden gems in this area!

$6 portion. Crispy and good for sharing but probably too sinful to eat as an entire meal.

SO GOOD. Ordered $6 Takeaway. The queue was pretty long at 7pm and I must have waited at least half an hour! Tasted great and had a smoky bbq flavour. Must try.

Went past this signage of "Charcoal Fried Hokkien Mee" probably about a hundred times before finally deciding to finally eat here tonight 😋
The longest queue belongs to Swee Guan Hokkien Mee, the boss repeatedly fries their noodles over and over again resulting in the distinct charcoal flavour embedded into the noodles. Pictured here is the $8 portion, that strangely isn't 'wet' or 'dry' but of somewhere in between, moist yet not overly ladle with zhup.
However, it seems that the Hokkien Mee isn't the only good stall here. The one that stole my heart would be Kwong Satay, really tender well-grilled chicken/pork (50c each, Min. 10 pieces). Noteworthy would be their special satay sauce that gives off a slight mysterious hint of pink - still can't taste what's the special extra ingredient in it 🤔

The Fried Oysters ($5) from Hup Kee delivers plump fresh oysters served with crisp and slightly stretchy kind of Orh Jian.
For more supper places, check out @Burpple Supper guide release last week and read "I know what you ate last supper" by @iamjaynedoe 😎

For someone like me that didn't like wantan mee have to give a 👍 up to this stall.

The noodles are cook just nice and it's more to the old school kind of wantan mee which adds chilli and tomato sauce. Beware of the spicyness.
The char siew is flavourful and chewy, the pork wanton is normal but the texture of the skin is slightly hard, the soup itself is quite good. 8/10

This was actually pretty good for its price ($9 per serving)! The scallop and egg white were cut and mixed so well that one cannot tell which is which until you put it in your mouth.

Finally had the opportunity to try this much raved about crab bee hoon. Was a bit apprehensive given so many negative reviews about the queue and the price, we went at 9pm so luckily was seated straight away and only waited 20 mins for the dish to arrive (there was only one other table in front of us). It was so fragrant you can smell the strong seafood and wok hei before even taking a bite. The noodles were wonderfully cooked, not too soft with a good bite to it and the flavour was fantastic! Aromatic and infused with crab essence, with distinct mushroom and sweet capsicum flavour. Finally there is a good dose of smoky wok hei and fried garlic. Super yum but after a few plates it feels just that little bit heavy on the palate. Our crab was slightly underdone, we had to send the legs back to be zapped in the microwave because the crab roe was a bit runny. We ordered one crab bee hoon to share between 3 of us ($84 per crab, fixed price not by weight). Overall verdict 7.5/10, the price is the pain point considering the location and dingy set up, compared to other decent seafood zi char places. Glad I tried it once but it's difficult to get to without a car and probably won't return.
