Finally tried Boon Tong Kee Kway Chap which comes with a Michelin Recommendation. Food lived up to the hype, duck was tender and had a good amount of fat and skin on it. Portion size was also generous and I was left feeling full and satisfied. Will be back!

I love the oyster cakes from Fu Zhou Poh Hwa Oyster Cake but I just wish that they didnโ€™t put celery or coriander in it! Other than that itโ€™s perfect and everything I want in a snack.

One of my new favourite curry noodle place though itโ€™s a bit hard to fight my No. 1 which is the Hock Hai Curry Noodle. Sheng Kee Curry Noodle is located at Berseh Food Centre and the uncle sibei skilful when he was cooking this sia I was damn mesmerised. The curry was also on the lighter side and the chicken was ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Iโ€™ve tried almost all the Changi Village Hokkien Mees in Singapore and as for now, the Lor 8 Toa Payoh outlet has my heart. I visited the original outlet at Changi Village itself last week and I was expecting a lot from it (original store mah) but sadly, it fell short of expextations. The noodles were al dente but on the verge of being undercooked (I lowkey didnโ€™t mind this tho, I like hard noodles). Prawn stock used was decent but not as rich as its other counterparts and the wok hei was non existent. Uncle gave me a good amount of lard though, which made me happy. Probably just came on a bad day, I have faith in them.

People always fight over which nasi lemak is better at Changi Village Hawker Centre. My top contender is Mizzy Corner but itโ€™s a hard fight, I really like the others too. This one is from Changi Famous Nasi Lemak which is ironically not as famous as Mizzy Corner or Old School Canteen, but itโ€™s not bad eh. I got the 5th set which is the largest and cost $5. Portion size was good, chicken was Uber crispy, bergadil was sed so and otah did not have a strong fishy smell. Chill was also fantastic โ€” sweet with a spicy kick and not too hot for my weak tastebuds. Only gripe is the egg. Was rubbery and it felt like they left it in the fryer and forgot about it.

Old Nyonya sits at the bustling Maxwell Food Centre and sells an array of delicious local dishes like laksa, curry chicken and this mad good Rendang Chicken. The rendang sauce was ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป and the chicken was SO. TENDER. I also like how they have extra crispy things at the side for a nice crunch. Defo will be back!

The queues for Sin Chew Satay Bee Hoon are insane! Managed to get to the store before they opened and there was already a queue. The ingredients used are super fresh and we rlly love the nutty sauce so much. Worth the queue!

Finally tried the much raved about Xiao Di Hokkien Mee! Weโ€™ve heard mixed reviews but our experience was really good. While the wok hei could be stronger, the prawn stock used to cook the noodles was ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป and the dish was packed with umami.

I donโ€™t eat beef noodles very often but I think Hong Kee Beef Noodles may be my new favourite place. The uncle here has been cooking the dish for decades and has won multiple awards for it. You can opt for either the dry or soup version and I went for the dry, which features noodles doused in a thick, viscous gravy. You still get to enjoy a bowl of soup on the side and this was pack full of beefy herbal flavour. I also loved how the beef slices were super tender โ€” something that is hard to find these days!

Had Amoy Don from lunch the other day and got the cheesy cutlet don. I honestly wasnโ€™t expecting much but this was surprisingly good! Cutlet was really crispy and it really had cheese oozing out of it! Portion size was also pretty substantial for the price. Would recommend for whoever is in the CBD area cos need go back office liao.

Was feeling some good olโ€™ old school western food so I decided to try this stall called London Grill at Old Airport Food Centre. I got the pork chop and while this plate of food admittedly wasnโ€™t the best, it was super nostalgic! The pork itself was thin and a bit dry but the marinade was spot on. I also really loved the garlic bread ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป the veges were just frozen peas carrots and corn in cream sauce and tbh it didnโ€™t taste fantastic but it tasted like childhood and I really liked it??? Iโ€™d come back!

Damn good ayam penyet, fried and hammered freshly on the spot. Meat remained tender and succulent too. Will order again
