Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee serves up authentic Sarawakian cuisine with a new Friday Special in a coffee shop in Bedok. Read more.
I don't mind returning back to the same place for a bowl of Kolo Mee again should I have any cravings for it.
The laksa was very good. The gravy made from a base of prawn heads/shells, chicken and various spices was spicy, thick and layered, with tinges of lemak, bitterness, and coconuty fragrance.
There is no lack of good hawker stalls in Blk 216 such as Chris Kway Chap and Sin Ho, and Prawn & Mee is worth trying if you are craving for prawn noodles.
While I wouldn’t say it’s the best prawn noodles I’ve had, I would say its worth a try.
The noodles at Prawn & Mee might come across as ordinary and basic, but give this store a chance and you’ll be in for a huge surprise.
The pork chop was tender, savoury (even salty) and fragrant with five spices and pepper. Tastier than perhaps the DTF pork chop, although thinner. The fried rice was not as evenly fried as DTF, but had more wok hei and more egg fragrance.
I would likely be back to try the other dishes only if the queue is shorter.
Definitely coming back to Hao Lai Ke for more!
Pasar 216 Bedok Central hawker centre is off the tourist belt in a mature public housing area but it has many excellent food stalls - more than many famous, higher media profile hawker centres.
Han Kee Fish Soup is not the first stall to offer such a combination, and I’m more than glad that there is such a combination because white rice with braised sauce and sides will never go wrong.
Chris Kway Chap, one of the popular Stalls to fix your craving.
I am with Chris Kway Chap's many fans - this kway chap is nice.
There are quite a few well-rated Kway Chap stalls around the island, and in Bedok, Chris is definitely the one I would recommend to try.
Hon Ni Kitchen also offers a variety of side dishes such as stir fried long bean, fried bean curd, eggs and more. All of these are equally delicious and go wonderfully with the nasi lemak.
Hon Ni Kitchen is not a big fame, high media profile stall but their nasi lemak ticks all the right boxes for an excellent rendition of the dish. Prices are very wallet friendly too.
The plate of Fried Black Carrot Cake is pretty decent with sweet-tasting black sauce and natural egg sweetness. The carrot cake is run of the mill type but good enough for a simple breakfast if you want to fill a portion of your stomach.
Very cheap carrot cake with prices starting at $2. Both the white and the black carrot cake were very crispy. The white had a good rice fragrance, while the black was really sweet and charred (at areas to a crisp), and tasted like the old school carrot cake I had when I was young, at the old Commonwealth Crescent Market.
The items at Fish & Chicks are reasonably priced, given that so much work is put into making their sauces and dips from scratch.
All in all, I liked that the fish and chicken came in reasonably big portions, and sauces were made from scratch. Perhaps with more branches, consistency could be a challenge which the team would need to work on.
Both of them more more tame than I was expecting; they were slightly sweet, and were neither as earthy as I had hoped they would be. The chili kept things refreshing though, and I'm glad that I opted for the side of begedil too. But I'm not going to get cravings for this place.
This stall at Bedok Interchange (208B New Upper Changi Road #01-64) commanded a pretty long line at lunchtime today.
Delicious Fried Carrot Cake Stripes, an old school delight and this stall in Bedok is one of the most popular stalls for a quick post-meal snack.
