Dai Dong Prawn Noodle – Best Prawn Mee Soup For Me!
By Alfred February 23, 2010
I was on a mission to hunt for Big Prawn Mee stalls outside of the Jalan Besar/Beach Road vicinity lately and am glad to report that I managed to find a few on the northern part of Singapore which will be reviewed in the next few posts. Now I'm feeling very good lately as far my hae mee fix is concerned because I've finally found one hae mee that is worth a rave, finally!!!! Let's face it - Prawn ...

Hui Ji Fish Ball Noodle, Yong Tau Fu – Seriously Shiok, Authentic & Cheap!
By Alfred February 4, 2010
The beautiful thing about commercialisation of our local hawker food businesses, is that we appreciate the old school stalls(really authentic kind) even more. Nowadays, we have to travel quite a distance to a particular stall to experience a particular authentic taste. I mean after all the travelling hassle(bitter), the sweetness becomes more sweet and the shiokness becomes more shiok, right? It has a greater perceived value(seen as gold!) due to it's scarcity, otherwise if they are all over the place ...

Jia Xiang Sliced Fish Soup & Noodles – If You Love Seafood As Much As Your Bak Chor Mee
By Alfred February 1, 2010
Jack of all trades kind of hawker stalls are becoming a common phenomenon nowadays. If you want to find stalls that sell just 1 item in food centres, that might equate to you trying to find a needle in a haystack. It is actually quite sad to see how out of sync those 'Master Of 1 Food' type of stalls are with the rest of those japalang stalls in markets nowadays. You see, food businesses are becoming very competitive ...

Thiam Seng Seafood – At Last You Don’t Need To Spend $10 For A Shiok Hor Fun!
By Alfred January 18, 2010
The best hor fun for me was done without the use of eggs and with that delightful wok hei from the charred hor fun permeating through the gravy. Now it's true that some hor fun with eggs thrown in can still taste fractionally shiok but yet most of the time, that 'eggy' flavor can be a little 'disturbing' because it masked away all those essential shiok flavors like the wok hei(if any) or flavours of any other ingredients like ...

Crystal Jade Kitchen – Finally Found An Authentic Salt & Pepper Spare Rib!
By Alfred January 14, 2010
Every time I have a Cantonese meal, I would remember the days when I was abroad. In foreign land, the food that you grew up eating can be hard to come by and one would naturally look for the closest thing to flavours one missed the most and for me, Cantonese food come the closest. Unfortunately, when I came back, I realised that authentic Hong Kong flavors are something one will be really hard-pressed to find in Singapore. Apparently, the ...

Lam’s Abalone Soup – The Ultimate Bowl Of Mee Pok Tah!
By Alfred January 10, 2010
Have you ever wondered what does it take to create a bowl of mee pok tah that is second to none? I must confess that the vigorous attempt by Ah Guan Mee Pok Pte Ltd quite wow me with their $7 bowl which has ingredients like scallops and crayfish but the shiokness there somehow didn't quite hit the potential for me because boiled seafoods are not shiok enough. So what can come to the rescue? Lam’s Abalone Soup is ...

Tai Shek Hei House of Traditional Bamboo Noodles – Retro Bamboo Pressed Noodles
By Alfred December 26, 2009
If you asked me where was the best noodles I have had in Singapore, I will say it was at Crystal Jade. Distinctly like what you can get from any wanton mee stall in Hong Kong, it got that little springy, chewy yet slippery texture with that translucent look that can be so delirious to slurp. I am not sure here, but I'm guessing that Crystal Jade's noodles could be due to the handmade outcome or perhaps the effect of ...

Yan Kee Noodle House – Ikan Bilis To Go With Your Mee Pok Tah
By Alfred December 24, 2009
Fishball noodles and bak chor mee(teochew version) are getting scandalously similar nowadays. You get the same kind of chilli sauce, vinegar, same noodles choice, minced pork, fishcakes, porkballs. The only thing that separates the 2 is the fishballs. I think if there are two local foods that have a high possibility of been coalesced into one very soon, then this 2 would be it. Alas even the soup of these 2 noodles are tasting very similar. I wonder ...

Yong Li Fishball Noodles – Very Shiok Bak Chor!
By Alfred December 16, 2009
Nowadays contemporary styles' coffeeshop is a common sight and it is just unfortunate that the taste of foods sold in these eateries are also as contemporary as their appearances. Inevitably, we became more appreciative towards coffeeshops that look like they were caught in a time warp because naturally, it is at these old school eateries where we can still find foods that are really authentic.

Hua Kee Hougang Famous Wan Ton Mee – Chilli Good, Wanton Shiok!
By Alfred December 15, 2009
Singapore is just a little island but there are so many types of wanton mee as opposed to the entire Malaysia where you can only find one type which is the one that comes with some black soy sauce. Don't you find that an irony? Interestingly there are chilli in so many Malaysian's foods but when it comes to Wanton Mee, it must be eaten without chilli as what my Malaysian friends said 'must savor the original flavour'. But to ...

Ah Guan Mee Pok Pte Ltd – Scallops Or Crayfish To Go With Your Mee Pok Tah!

People in different countries don't greet people the same way. It range from the simple universal "Hello!" to American's 'Howdy?" to British's "What's up?" to Aussie's "Good day!" to Singaporeans' "Jiak Pa Buay?"(Eat already or not?!). Singaporeans are so passionate about their food that the first thing they want to know about their friends is whether they have eaten their meals, but have you wondered why are we so passionate about food? There have been many discussions about this and ...

Changi Seafood – Very Shiok Live Seafood At Affordable Prices!
By Alfred December 8, 2009
I must confess that I don't eat at chinese restaurants a lot. It's not that restaurant's foods are not shiok but more often than not, you can eat the same thing(most of it) at many cze char places for a lot lesser. In most cases, I find myself pondering over the difference between a $6 plate of kai lan at a cze char place and a $15 one served at a restaurant. Even when I go on trips, I couldn't ...

Hong Sheng Restaurant – A Famous Cze Char Stall That Refuse to Charge Exorbitantly!

Hong Sheng Restaurant at Toa Payoh Ever since I heard about Hong Sheng Restaurant in Toa Payoh and had an opeh leaf hor fun there, I was dying to return to try out their cze char dishes. Aiyah, unfortunately this is one place you must really come early like 5pm or be prepared to wait for 1-2 hours for your food to be cooked. Nevermind that no stalls are allowed to open in the evening and they occupy the ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge: Wrap-Up
By Alfred December 1, 2009
The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge Hor fun is something one can eat at many cze char places but more often than not, it is 'severely abused' in the form of a $3 pack. Let's face it - for $3, there is a limit to the shiokness attainable, right? There are many ways to make a plate of hor fun more shiok but if like me, you find it needless to reinvent the wheel, then an opeh leaf version ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 8: Fei Lao Seafood At Bedok
By Alfred November 30, 2009
Fei Lao Seafood may sound new to you but it is a household name at Bedok area for hor fun with a ferocious 'breath of the wok' or what is famously known as the wok hei in cantonese. Somehow it's here where the spirit of the fire can be unlocked to impart that nice smoky sublime flavour from the wok to the hor fun which lingers over the opeh leaf. Well, for those who are interested to read more on ...

It is not surprising to see opeh leaf hor fun being disguised by pretentious facades at some cze char outlets but then the novelty of it is not just a matter of putting fried hor fun on a piece of opeh leaf. The niceties of an opeh leaf hor fun must include the inconspicuous wok hei with plenty of delicious seafood(king prawns and cucumber) while the gravy must do a good job in blending the flavour and the taste to ...

If you asked me like, 15 years ago what is the most amazing thing about a plate of opeh leaf hor fun, I'd swear it's the big succulent prawns. I mean, big juicy prawns are things that kids only get to eat during occasions like wedding dinners so to find it in a pack of strangely wrapped hor fun is one of those moments I relished. Moving on to now, my pick would be the wok hei. I mean wok ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 5: Fatty Weng At Guillemard Road
By Alfred November 24, 2009
The construction of what will be a very tok kong(fantastic) hor fun is, as I've mentioned many times before, the ingredients used( good seafood), tasty gravy and good wok hei. For those who are unclear, wok hei here is referring to the charred surface that appears on the hor fun which will provide every mouthful of it with a little 'grilled' aroma similar to what you get in satays or steaks. It's just that little bit of charred(not a lot) ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 4: Hong Kong Street Chun Kee At Bukit Merah
By Alfred November 23, 2009
I've lately been brought to the attention of several Cze Char stalls that have opeh leaf hor fun in their menus. After eating at these stalls, I have to say that the flavours seem to be very different in most of the stalls though they all are quite authentic in their own ways. Basically, the one that I grew up eating(Fei Lao), is my gold standard opeh leaf hor fun. It's the combination of the ingredients used, the bud-titillating ...

There is one question that is always on my mind: Why can't the normal $3 horfun which you can find in any kopitiams have a good wok hei on them? Why must wok hei and opeh leaf go hand in hand? For those who don't know, in the good ole days, hor fun with the wok hei was as common as prawns in your prawn noodles soup today. Back then, if you were having hor fun for dinner, the smell ...
