Teochew Kueh at JB Pasar Malam that's Always Sold Out before Sunset

Teochew-Kueh-JB-Pasar-Malam

You know, on those evenings when I don't feel like having dinner, I often go to this pasar malam (night market) Teochew kueh stall to get a big bunch of munchies and there will still be plenty for breakfast the next morning 😄

Back at Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles 華記大蝦麵 at the Esplanade Mall after almost exactly one year (since it opened here. Wah Kee was founded in 1951 and the parent stall is still in operation at Pek Kio hawker centre).

Ghim Moh Food Guide. Hin Fried Hor Fun with Prawn Beef Sliced Fish

Ghim-Moh-Food-Centre-Hin-Beef-Hor-Fun

Judging by the perpetual queue at the stall, Hin Fried Hor Fun with Prawn Beef Sliced Fish is one of the stalwarts at Ghim Moh food centre (itself one of Singapore's best loved food haunts). I love Cantonese style beef hor fun and is always on the lookout for good stalls. (Quite hard to find good hor fun in Singapore. Please share with me your favourites.)

Ghim Moh Carrot Cake. Chai Tow Kway 菜头粿

Ghim-Moh-Carrot-Cake-Chai-Tow-Kway-菜头粿

The queue at Ghim Moh Carrot Cake stall starts soon after 6am and lasts till as early as 12 noon, when all the day's carrot cakes are sold out. Ghim Moh Carrot Cake's kway 粿 are freshly made at the stall, so once the day's batch is sold out, it's shutters down.

Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Ghim Moh Food Centre 元福建炒虾面

Looking at the lunch time queue at 元福建炒虾面 fried Hokkien prawn mee at Ghim Moh food centre, I could never have guessed that the stall is a new kid on the block - it has been here for only one month. It just confirms one thing - that locals can always spot good food faster than anyone 😄

Yi-Restaurant-奇味鸡煲-Spicy-Hotpot-Kovan-Singapore

We gathered at Yi Restaurant 奇味鸡煲 in Kovan for China style spicy hotpot. Aaron missed the spicy hotpots of Shanghai and Yi Restaurant was the nearest thing to those in China that he came across in Singapore.

香味 Chicken Rice at Viva Biz Park in Chai Chee Singapore

香味-Chicken-Rice-Viva-Biz-Park-Chai-Chee-Singapore

香味 Chicken Rice and Roasts stall in the Bai Nian food court in Viva Business Park in Chai Chee serves a good chicken rice. 香味 is a welcome addition to Singapore's east which though famous for good food, oddly isn't as well endowed with great chicken rice stalls as the rest of our chicken rice obsessed island.

Singapore Best Yong Tau Foo List. Bai Nian Niang Dou Fu 百年酿豆腐. Viva Business Park

Bai-Nian-Niang-Dou-Fu-百年酿豆腐-Viva-Business-Park

When I stumbled upon Bai Nian Niang Dou Foo 百年酿豆腐 in People's Park Food Centre over a year ago, I liked it very much. Ban Nian's style of yong tau foo is not the typical YTF we are used to in Singapore and Malaysia, but if we keep an open mind about it, it is really very nice. There is something about it that made it special, but I couldn't quite pin it down at the time.

Today, I finally got the answer.

Tong Kee Chicken Rice 東記雞飯. Tanglin Halt Food Centre. Singapore

Tong-Kee-Chicken-Rice-東記雞飯-Tanglin-Halt-Food-Centre-Singapore

So, I asked Niven whose family ran the famous Sin Kee chicken rice stall at Margaret Drive hawker centre on the whereabouts of the old stalls at the now demolished food centre 😢 I had lunch and dinner at Margaret Drive hawker centre countless times as I worked and lived nearby in the 1980s 😢 I remember there were four chicken rice stalls, fish ball noodles, char kway teow, zhi char, popiah, dessert, sui kow soup etc among many more. A part of me went missing when I lost touch with these stalls 😢
