There’s actually a secret at Hong Lim Food Centre known only to regulars and I wasn’t aware about it until my elder sister, who worked next ...
I had been delaying the publication of this post as Hong Lim Food Centre was closed for two weeks due to its identification as a cluster for...
The chicken was moist, tasty, and with a crispy skin that was further topped with a crunchy laksa seasoning.
I feel that the key to being a successful hawker is not only to have tasty dishes but also to have the ability to be consistent, giving people a reason to keep coming back.
This really begs the question as to why there are not more curry mee stalls around, seeing that their business is so good!
It’s always interesting to find out for yourself if the highly-lauded food stalls with perpetually long queues are really worth the wait. Inspired by the local television show, Where The Queue Starts, I decided to put myself in one of those notoriously long queues at Hong Lim Market And Food Centre,…
While we waited for the food, the pickles at Spring Court was so so good. Could finish one whole plate on my own.
Service at Spring Court Restaurant is old-school charm and efficiency.
Today's poh piah was much more tasty than the last two times we were here.
I have not been dining out much during this period for personal reasons. This pretty much explained why I have not been updating this blog. ...
Finishing a meal here left me with a hodgepodge of emotions.
Really good and cheap chicken curry mee you must try if you are a curry fan. Sweet, very lemak, mild spices. I shall be back for more Cantonese Delights dishes.
I liked most of them, even if the broth was a tad garlicky.
On the whole, Dong Fang Hong Sotong Ball Seafood Soup proved to be a stand-out, amidst the treasure trove of popular food stalls in Hong Lim.
The taste is complex yet it is coherent as it is just many many complementary layers of natural savoury sweetness.
I remember Chef Eddy Wan. He used to run Rustic Bistro at China Street but closed down. I visited the cafe in June 2015 and was quite impres...
I do see Eddy’s No.1 becoming another reason why people visit this place.
The journey was long but Eddy made it and boy, am I glad that he did.
Overall, the dish still tastes better than others I tried in Singapore but I will not queue for it.
One such stall is Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee at Hong Lim Food Centre which is also recognised in Michelin Bib Gourmand Singapore 2018 and 2019 edition.
In all honesty, I find this a great bowl of noodle but the small serving for its price is a big deterrent for me to enjoy regularly.
Soggy noodles that reeked of alkaline and neh, I am barely impressed with this far from the Michelin version.
Firm slices of fish were nice but the kailan was a little fibrous. As a whole, it was delicious.
Tried their chai por fried rice which looked very mundane.
With modern wok–hei dishes by day and traditional zi char fare by night, I’d say Tang Kay Kee deserves multiple return visits.
Popular early breakfast option at Hong Lim Food Centre serving traditional Teochew handmade fishball and meatball with spicy noodles.
I found them on the salty side but no complaints here. $3.50 for a delicious yet sinful breakfast.
Worth a try - the best thing here in my opinion is their unique sweet savoury peppery sauce.
Though the food isn’t mind-blowingly spectacular, it is undeniable that Tuck Kee (Ipoh) Sah Hor Fun stands as one of Singapore’s cheapest places to enjoy crayfish hor fun.
