Assam Curry Fish Head

Our dish was served piping hot on the plate with the fire warming the fish. It was covered with vegetables such as onions, lady fingers. tomato and long beans.

The gravy was appetizing and a great pairing to our plates of white rice. Fish was tender and fresh.

Oats Sotong

The dish is not up to my expectation as the taste of Oats does not marry well with the Sotong. Though fragrant is there and the texture of Sotong is chewy, somehow the taste was lacking in this combination.

If you have been to Clementi 448 Market & Food Centre, there are a number of stalls that are visibly popular among the rest and one of them is none other than Kian Seng Lor Mee Prawn Mee Laksa stall. You will notice that the stall always have a long queue lining up since early in the morning and that prove the number of die hard fans they have!

I joined the long queue and wanted to order some bowls of Laksa but ended up disappointed as it was all sold out.

The bowl of Lor Mee and thick Lor Sauce that was not too cloying or starchy. It also have a generous portion of pork belly, Ngoh Hiong, slices of fish cakes and braised egg. Apparently, such traditional and unpretentious bowl of Lor Mee is well liked by the heart landers.

To be honest, the 3 dishes on the menu were the regulars all time favourite. The taste of Prawn Noodle was traditional with 4 small prawns in a bowl, lean meat, fishcakes. If you are looking for traditional Prawn Noodle taste with a decent prawn broth, this will fit the bill.

While their Belgian Waffles are one of the must-order, I had 2 scoops of ice cream, Raspberry and Cookies & Cream on it. The elegant piped fresh cream on the ice cream and waffle had completed our meal.

I'm glad that Waffletown make a comeback for all their supporters as we really miss such nostalgic taste from their fried chicken. However, due to a shortage of manpower, they will be opening from 5pm to 9pm except Monday till further notice.

Looking into their Signature Pizzas, I had the Selvaggia when translated from Italian it means Wild. This was recommended in the menu and their 12" pizza can be divided into two different flavours if you want. The pizza was thin crust and topped with tomato sauce base with mozzarella cheese, cooked ham, salame, sausage and bacon. The Thin Crust pizza was crispy and it seems like we had enjoyed the pizza spread on a piece of biscuit.

We ordered their Waffle with 3 scoops of Ice Cream and were kind of shocked at the pricing. We had coconut Lychee, Dark Chocolate and Pistachio. In fact, these are the combinations of their Special Type of Small Batch of Gelato. The coconut lychee had a special punch of coconut with a subtle taste of the lychee while the Sicilian Bronte Pistachio was rich fragrant and smooth.

I know of Formosa Delights from their handmade noodles through the stalls in the foodcourt. They have been fond of their quality handmade noodles and pastries since 1998.

Their Formosa Finest Handmade Noodle was shocking and not to my liking. Though the texture of the noodles was perfectly fine, the stinky seafood smell was too strong. The broth was sweet with the seafood, vegetables, mushroom and minced meatballs.

One of the Taiwanese Must Have will be the Signature Braised Pork Rice. The mixture of braised pork belly, minced meat, braised peanuts and cabbage is decked up by a bed of pearl rice. The bowl was sprinkled with chopped spring onions and tucked with a dollop of chilli too. We added the braised egg 卤蛋 at an additional $0.80.

Personally, I love the herbal infused pork belly chunks that boasted a strong scent of cinnamon and star anise. What's more, they have a good amount of melt in the mouth fats and tender meat.

This hidden gem among the industrial estate is definitely worth highlighting especially for those who are craving Taiwanese food. Though the pricing may be steeper compared to other food in the industrial estate, I would say the price paid is worth the taste. The selection is of a good variety and I will be back for others.

With the noodles hidden by the braised gravy, decked with pieces of pork as well as the delicious fried fish, I could not resist but fastened my footsteps to the seat as soon as I got hold of my orders.

I like that the Lor Mee gravy was slightly thick but not too starchy. The bowl also comprises of half a portion of braised egg and coriander as garnishing. If you prefer your bowl of Lor Mee with Garlicky flavours, additional chopped garlic can be added.

All Chee Cheong Fun was made to order on the spot. There are four choices on the Menu, Plain Chee Cheong Fun at $3, Mushrooms, Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun at $4 and Shrimps Chee Cheong Fun at $5.

Mushroom Cheong Fun 港式鲜菇肠粉 - $4
The translucent rice rolls cradle stir-fried shitake and Shimeji mushrooms. The rolls were springy and smooth, drenched in the savoury sweet dark sauce with white sesame seeds toppings.

To be honest, I have always been craving for Railway Bento even when I'm in Taiwan. Their Railway Bento is of a big portion and I'm kind of surprised. The plate of Bento Meal comprises of one gigantic slab of pork chop coated with sweet-savoury dark sauce, braised eggs, sliced Tau Gua, greens and pickles.

The dark sauce given was so generous that it may be overpowering its taste and too salty to go without the white rice but for the portion at the price paid, this is indeed tempting.
