From its humble beginning in 1955, till it closed in June 2022, this beloved old-school stall served up homely Chinese Teochew meals daily.
.
Entire generations have grown up eating at this joint, run by Carol Lee and family. The wide range of painstakingly prepared dishes, numbering up to 30 daily, were tasty and affordable. No surprise that folks returned time and again.
.
It's the closure of such places that remind why I even began blogging - to capture and preserve memories, not just for others, but for myself.
.
Their plain rice porridge used to be medium thin and watery, with mild grainy sweet flavour, and always served warm.
.
The Garlic Yu Choy has a light crispy crunch, with a nice vegetal sweet earthy spice flavour. The Soy Braised Peanuts are lighter than elsewhere, with a firm crunch and savoury salty nutty flavour.
.
The Minced Pork In Black Bean & Chili Oil has a tender juicy satisfying chew, with lovely meaty savoury spicy salty earthy flavour. The Luncheon Meat Spam is thick cut and tender springy, with nice meaty salty savoury flavour.

Basking in the festive mood with Swensens' Christmas menu! 🎄 This is one of their classic dishes - tender & aromatic Herb Roast Chicken 🐔 ($45++, 4-6pax), comes with creamy mushroom sauce. I would say that it is well-marinated! Definitely sets me in the mood for Christmas!

A major throwback to the time I visited the charming Chū and Co for their wonderful bakes! More of a takeaway spot as there were limited seats in the area (from what I remember there were just random chairs around). So, I got the Bacon Leek Cream Scallion Oil ($6.50), Pesto & Comte Pistachio ($6.50) as well as Potato, Spam, Garlic Butter ($6) to go. 

Much love for sweet-savoury pairings, I really liked the Pesto & Comte Pistachio. My favourite of the lot, the pastry had a great lamination - think light, crisp, flaky, round croissant-like goodness after a quick pop in the toaster. The flavour from the pesto, comte, and pistachio combo was a solid ten too. Very nutty, superbly umami, and especially pleased with the herbaceous hint. I just enjoy the intensity of the mix. However, something to note, it did get pretty oily due to the pesto.

On the other hand, the Bacon Leek Cream Scallion Oil ($6.50) was more of a miss for me as the dough was a little dense and the flavour profile was tangier due to the cream. The amount of leeks, leek cream, and bacon to dough ratio was a tad off as well as I personally prefer more toppings in every bite. Hence, for the Potato, Spam, Garlic Butter ($6), the dough was also a little harder to chew but there were a good number of potato cubes and saltish spam covered in melted cheese to go around. A lovely and classic option to reach for when craving a carb-y snack. Overall, the prices are kinda steep but the offerings are rather unique and they come pretty sizeable.
