Not a bad plate of chai tow kway. I liked that there were some crusty caramelized bits on some of the edges.
Overall, this is a very hearty meal and a great rendition of nasi lemak!
ayam penyet - Rice was plain, not chicken rice. Meat from the chicken was a little dry.
They're two stall units worth of space. They could be good. Or I could be wrong.
While my initial intention was to get kuey chap, I ended up being distracted by their pig intestine noodles.
Lor Mee 178's lor (the gooey sauce) is relatively clear and just slightly savoury sweet.
Satin’s Mee Rebus Tulang. This exciting cross-cover combines rich and gelatinous braised tulang, or bone marrow, with creamy mee rebus for a flavourful treat.
In retrospect, we liked the chicken rice at Shi Mei better.
This was done really toasty and crispy on the outside, stuffed with cucumber and beansprouts, and topped with peanuts and a nice pungent shrimp sauce or hae ko. Nice traditional stuff.
There is no lack of food options in Tiong Bahru Food Centre and The Coco Rice is worth a try if you need to satisfy your nasi lemak cravings. The portion is quite huge and it is personally too much for me.
If you’re looking for a cooler, cheaper alternative to your typical Cafe cheeseburger in Tiong Bahru, Skirt & Dirt is the place to be! They also have another outlet in Bukit Timah that’s closed on Tuesdays.

Singapore Lor Mee, previously Zhen Hao Lor Mee at North Bridge Road, has relocated to Tiong Bahru Market, and still serves delicious lor mee!
A breakfast of chee cheong fun with savouries of otah, scarred looking fried egg and a cheap hot dog that transcends decades of memories through space/time.
Not a bad eat but I didn't like their gloopy sauce. Gotta remember to get this without that gloopy sauce the next time.
Overall, being a true blue Singaporean, such simple and straight forward breakfast is nothing more than comfortable to me.
Needless to say, this was a joy to have in the hot weather and I cleaned it up in no time.
