Lucky to have tried 3 soups alr, haven't repeated since. They have 5 in total, I haven't had the lotus root and ABC yet

I tot this was less impressive than normal at first, until I realised I had flu. So it's probably as good as their other soups, they're pretty consistent

The ckn rice and ckn were both passable, but ofc, if all their meats were exceptional that would be too OP. The oil they drizzle over it was fragrant though

The char siew portion for this price is reasonable, considering the quality

The rice is slightly dry

Sauce is the run of the mill herbal duck sauce(not their excellent danggui sauce), you can do without if not for the dry rice

Siobak has a good crunch, it's the hard style but not too hard. There's also a nice roasted aroma at the ends

The char siew tho. It's got a good bite, and is the candy style but without crust. However, the super strong marinade and the smokiness really stole my heart, I normally wouldn't approve of char siew without crisp but I enjoyed this very much

Chili is quite spicy, not too special otherwise

The daily soup was old cucumber this time, it's really good as ever. Tender pork ribs, generous ingredients, and luxurious liquid

Very glad to have this near my house

Getting our Teochew dim sum fix at Swatow City in Bukit Batok Home TeamNS, an unusual location which is great as this branch is less crowded.

This branch doesn’t serve their dim sum on traditional pushcarts but all the delectable dim sum items are served warm and prepared upon order.

Glad to know that I can take my family to get one of our fav comfort food, without having to travel too far away from my neighbourhood!

A short walk from Bukit Gombak MRT Station and you will find this vegetarian restaurant packed with people during lunch time.

They have been open for many years serving their vegetarian foods, with different items available for everyday as well.

When I came, they have this popular dry noodles that comes with mock meat, fried beancurd, mushroom and veggies on the top of springy noodles.

A neighbourhood ice cream shop at Bukit Batok, popular among the people living in this area.

Pretty small shop but you would find some interesting flavours like this one.

I love black glutinous itself as a dessert and definitely open to this creation. Surprisingly it taste great as well.

Smoked duck rice.

This nameless stall does not have a signboard and it operates out of a rojak stall.
They begin business daily (except Mondays) at the ungodly hour of 4.30am till 9am.
A plate of char bee hoon with a fried chicken wing and a fried fish fillet costs $3.

From Waa Cow:
The beef did not have the signature “butteryness” of wagyu , it was only slight tender and juicy with a charred taste. I’m no beef expert but I’ve had better wagyu.

The rest of the ingredients were mehhh

Therefore, as an average food enthusiast, this is really not worth it for me.

Ordered the $6.50 Fried Hokkien Mee with Salted Egg Calamari. The portion for this price is fairly big. Noodles did not have enough wok heat but overcame with good amount of eggs and the bee hoon they used was springy and al dente. Bit stingy with only half a lime given and a sprinkle of pork lard, although the latter was fried just right and crispy. The chilli sauce did not accentuate the flavour of the noodles and neither was there sufficient heat. Perhaps, with less piquant taste from half a lime, a tangy chilli sauce would have worked better. Two “tails on” prawns were there in the mix. These were good and fresh; they were almost crunchy in their freshness. Also in the mix was some sliced pork belly meat and calamari.

Speaking of calamari, the Salted Egg Calamari was more of a distraction than anything else. It did nothing for the noodles except to contrast slurpiness with crunchiness. I am not sure if this is a generational gap thing. Certainly I failed to appreciate it with the noodles.

Perhaps I should come back and try other combinations but the noodles itself is not so strong a motivator for me.

With mushroom and soup

Quintessential Ba Chor Mee. Not too oily or spicy. Portion and ingredients pretty decent for the price.
I like that the lettuce were cut into small pieces, easier to eat :)

Yentafo Noodles - Thai yongtaufoo. You get to choose whether you want soup (only if you like sweet) or dry, and your type of noodles. Not my style.
Moo ping - a tad too sweet and needs more char. Otherwise decent.
Deep fried pork with garlic - pork itself not seasoned with garlic but comes with fried garlic bits. Good with beer.
Pad Thai - too wet for my liking but tastes good
Mango salad - yes please! The mango had some sweetness. Not overly spicy but tasted fresh and definitely better than most places .
Claypot prawn glass noodles - off-menu and a special. Special, it was.
