A rainy day’s favourite! Rich tomato soup broth that tastes slightly similar to that of haidilao’s! However, as seen here, it can get pretty oily. Yummy but oily, so not something to have frequently! The noodles were super yumz and al-dente, the braised beef was flavourful and fall-of-the-bone. Served with half a hanjuku egg.

Wholesome rainy day herbal noodles with pork! As pictured, it’s a generous portion of noodles and pork, with Goji berries and half a hanjuku egg. The broth was extremely herbally - definitely not for those who dislike soup 😂 The fiancé, a Chinese food and soup lover, has nothing but praises for this. Not for me tho!

A Hong Kong specialty and a must try! You get to choose from 4 selections of noodle size and types - choice of springy egg noodles (thin/thick) OR rice noodle (flat/thin). Pictured here is the thin egg noodle (that's springy and Q! 'Chose what Hong Kong noodle houses are famed for! The noodle threads are tossed in some house made savoury sauce - a blend of soy and other secret ingredients I believe.

The noods were topped with a generous portion of beef brisket braised to tenderness - definitely worth the price that you're paying for. According to the fiance, this is way better and way more affordable than DTF's. The brisket was fall-off-the-chopstick kinda tender, with translucent bits of collagen and maybe, some fats for that extra bit of juiciness 💦

This has got to be one of the most value-for-money breakfast in my list of hawker finds! Loaded with tons of protein - ngoh hiong, fried fish (fresh!) and chunky lor bak. This bowl of delicious mix seemed small but it left me extremely filled. This probably explains the 20-30mins long’ queue but definitely worth every second of wait time. My papa had this for the 2nd time and he rarely queues for food!

Super long queue but super worth the wait!! Testament to the worthiness of the food is the .. queue! Most ordered the white beehoon and fried fish. I decided to go for the claypot noodles instead - was in the mood for salty that day! It does overpower the light, refreshing and milky taste of the soup tho. So select your noodles wisely!

We were around the hood for something else but it was closed! Turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we got to try this yummilicious asian delight served with a modern take! Chef Joel’s meekia was served with runny onsen, shredded crab meat and thiccccc braised charsiu. It was a very satisfying, slightly upscaled version of meekia.

Crispy horfun was mind-blowing. There wasn’t any sight of horfun when the dish was served. Turns out, the crispy, keropok-like strips were horfuns! Yes, they’re battered and fried - not exactly the healthiest but I’d say it’s indeed better when battered 😂 Doused in horfun gravy with egg swirls and served with a generous serving of pork slices!

$4.50 per bowl, serving wasn’t exceptionally huge. Neither was the taste. Not bad, but not wow. Better, cheaper options available!!
Face-palm 🤦🏻‍♀️

$4.50/serving, with extremely generous serving of wanton noodles and thick slab of chicken cutlet. The cutlet was fried-upon-order, hence you’re assured of a freshly-fried piece of chicken each time you order. The batter was crisp and the chicken was tender and juicy - nothing tough and distasteful. It was pretty addictive and ... a sizeable piece that leaves you really full after some noodles too. Definitely not for someone with a small appetite (advisable to share). Jiji serves this with their special wanton noodles - slightly thicker version than most wanton noodle places that I’ve been too. The thicker noodles soaks up the curry very well; with a springy texture that makes you wanna finish all up even if you’re already very filled up from the cutlet. The curry was a tad more salty than the version from Cantonese Delight, also located in the same hawker, but definitely very yummy too.

At $10/bowl, this certainly isn’t the cheapest in the hawker but definitely one of the must-tries, especially if 3 uncles ahead in the queue (seemingly HOBOs of the hawker centre and the precinct) ordered the same. It was a blessing in disguise that the cheaper items on the menu that I’d budgeted to try were sold out! Crayfish were succulent, juicy and peeled off the shelves very readily! Prawns were peeled - so much ease to just pop a pump one into your mouth!

Rich, cholesterol packed bowl of noodles with really good chilli paste. Served with a side of soup!

This was EXCEPTIONAL, especially from young owners who’re just around the 30y.o! As unassuming as it seems, the meepok were evenly coated with some secret oil (yes, calories, fats and fast track to paradise), with every single strand being cooked al-dente. Who doesn’t love springy noodles?! The young owners have mastered the skills of charring their charsiew to the perfect balance of tender insides, with charred (& sweet!) ‘crust’. The roast pork was cackling kinda crispy and the minced pork - again, as unassuming as it looks - were packed with flavours. There has to be some sorta secret seasoning in there!!

Oh. Not sure why there’s laupasat on the bowl but am pretty sure the legit outlet is the one at Old Airport road 👌
