By this, I mean everything coffee shop, kopitiam, hawker centre, and markets! Cheapest, most worth it & best kind of my favourite food😋 Ratings take into consideration price of the dish, quality of the dish, and overall service and ambience of the location if applicable!🌟

Crayfish laksa with a generous amount of taupok and reasonable portion that’s good for sharing. The laksa here was more on the coconutty and creamy side. Nothing too spicy, making it suitable for both spicy and non-spicy palates to gain enough satisfaction. Apart from how the crayfish makes this laksa just a bit more “atas”, the idea of the laksa being served simmering hot in the claypot with an amazing aroma sure made me feel like the price point of this was worth it.

Love how the Mee Siam gravy here is much thicker than usual, and with this thicker consistency it had a nice siap siap flavour and with a sweet spiciness. It’s really not your usual texture but I actually really enjoyed it!

Finally visited the refurbished Chin Mee Chin, and it took me long enough to come to this traditional yet charmingly nostalgic coffeeshop. The Kaya toast set doesn’t look like what you’d expect, the classic square toast, but was made with a round bun that was just slightly toasted, but well-buttered and soft. A nice alternative to the other kaya toasts out there! I personally did not enjoy the yuan yang I got together with my meal though, for the texture was a bit too thin.

On the other hand, the oyster omelette paled in comparison against their Hokkien mee. It was overwhelmingly starchy, and slightly tasteless as well. Egg was also a tad bit dry.

For some reason the reviews for Seng Kee isn’t that great, but the Hokkien Mee I’ve had was arguably one of the best I’ve had. That being said, I enjoy my Hokkien Mee more on the wet side, which Seng Kee very successfully delivered. Every bite was slurpy, with the gravy being both sweet and savoury on both ends. The chilli packed a super complementary punch which completed the dish.

It’s really not how desperate times call for desperate measures when you are craving for laksa and go to Toast Box willingly — because the laksa here is my guilty pleasure. It’s a bit on the pricier side with the set, but the nature of Toast Box being so accessible makes it easy for me to grab a quick and pretty damn decent lunch — with curry chicken rice and laksa being top two on my list. The laksa here by default comes with mee tai mak, which works pretty well with their broth. Their broth caters to the average Singaporean and in fact, tourist, whereby it strikes a good balance of creamy and mildly spicy, but nothing overbearing. Unlike some stingy stallholders in coffee shops, there is a good portion of taupok, fishcake, and prawns in this bowl of laksa as well.
P.S. Drink not pictured.

Actually surprised at how this was executed. While i thought it was more dry laksa than hokkien mee, it did the job of satisfying my laksa craving especially with the savouriness being pretty on point. A huge bonus is the generous portion of ingredients! The plate was choke full of fishcake, taupok, egg, and prawns🤤 my favorite laksa is just a stone’s throw away from Power Coffee House, but I’d still recommend this cafe quietly nestled in the heartlands of Bedok 85.

Now that self-service buffet has resumed, to join the “buffet” party without burning a hole in my wallet, I visited one of my favourite no frills joint with free flow ice cream and drinks. While the food itself is not free flow, it’s always good to have just one portion of mains, and then unlimited portions of drinks and dessert. That being said, the portion for the spicy cheese and chicken ramen was so huge, making me feel like I was at a real buffet.There was a generous amount of chicken slices in the noodles, and the soup was decently flavourful with an adequate spicy kick. An affordable, decent, and filling noodle option here.

Wok Express at NTU North Spine is a recent addition, but one that is welcomed especially with the Wok Hey fad a while ago. Nonetheless, everyone loves a good plate — more of box, of fried rice. Opted for the XO Fried Rice because I wanted something more flavourful than the usual egg fried rice. Safe to say, while the flavour of XO definitely could’ve been stronger, it lived up decently to my expectations of a fast-food fried rice concept. The base price is $6.60, which is a choice of fried rice with 3 other ingredients, whereby you have a plethora of classic fried rice ingredients to choose from. On that note, you can add as many ingredients as you want, as long as its within your budget.

I know its not the wisest decision to spend $6.30 on a bowl of laksa but Katong Laksa was literally my childhood, and I cannot lie and say that I don’t occasionally dream of it. Katong laksa is not the most affordably priced, but there are more exorbitant bowls out there. There’s something rich and creamy about the laksa broth, that gives a good spicy kick when you request for the addition of chilli. The already cut silky smooth noodles don’t require you to use a chopstick — so take mouthfuls of noodles, soup, and cockles all at the same time. The prawns were thin and measly, but being here a number of times, I wasn’t really expecting much from the ingredients here. Nonetheless, I’ll still come back for their pretty solid laksa broth and the nostalgia.

Curry chicken was super shiok! Generous amount of gravy with an amazing consistency. It was both spicy and creamy enough for me. I definitely could have done with more chicken meat, but you should know I polished off the gravy.

Rendang was on the sweeter side here. But like the curry chicken, they were very generous with their gravy! Not a lot of chicken here probably because it’s just a small thigh, and I honestly didn’t see how this was ‘crispy’. For a moment I thought they gave me the wrong order, but with the chicken doused in gravy it might seem impossible to uphold the standards of crispness. Plus points for their perfect looking egg though! This looks good and tastes decent, but I’d honestly go straight for their chicken curry!
