Ang Ku Kueh is a traditional Chinese cake made to look like a tortoise shell; hence the name that translates to red tortoise cake, although ...
Everything at Poh Cheu Soon Kueh And Ang Ku Kueh is still made from scratch daily by the family, so you can be assured of the quality control here.
Apart from ang ku kueh, Poh Cheu is popular for their soon kueh as well.
We enjoyed the Samsui chicken at Keng Eng Kee. Tender juicy sweet poached free range chicken eaten with mild grated ginger wrapped in crunchy lettuce.
It now offers island-wide delivery, bringing its delicious food to every corner of Singapore.
They have gotten a good supplier for their seafood, which is fresh.
I would definitely return for their shrimp wontons, and I wish they sold frozen ones so I could have them whenever I like.
Although this stall specializes in soya sauce chicken, it is their sui kow and soup that impresses me more.
I enjoyed the Shrimp Dumpling though.
Also, I like my Laksa fiery spicy but, despite adding the sambal chilli provided, I still find the spiciness too mild for me.
Depot Road claypot laksa is nice as it has its own unique style and sweet tasting profile. It's a mild, friendly laksa, especially good for introducing the dish to the uninitiated. I would have it again, if I am in the area.
I liked it so much that I nearly went back for a second bowl before realizing that that would be too much coconut milk in one day.
With no dine-in allowed for the next few weeks, no thanks to the enhanced measures for Phase 2 (Heightened Alert); I was wondering where I s...
Remember to drop by to give their muffins a try the next time you are around Alexandra!
This seemingly run-of-the-mill bakery in Alexandra Village Food Centre is a wildcard in a food centre that’s famous for their avocado drinks and delectable local food.
The minced meat noodle stall is opened on alternate Sundays, so do take note as they have a sign in the shop stating if they’ll be open this Sunday. Come get your Bak Chor Mee fix here today!
Seng Hong Coffee Shop is one of those last surviving old school coffee shop that seemed untouched by time.
I love how "crunchy" the mee kia is. Well, not crispy crunchy but al dente crunchy.
Known for their rich flavor given the high salinity of the Red Sea, the red prawns exhibited fresh crunchiness with a deep, endearing sweetness. p.s. I always eat prawns with their shells as I am lazy to peel them and it's extra calcium for the body.
Alexandra Village Food Centre welcomes Chef Goo, a seafood-centric stall that offers Hokkien mee and crab meat fried rice! Read more.
Chef Goo’s rich and heady pork and seafood broths make its dishes stand out from its counterparts. While there were some hits and misses, overall I really enjoyed the Hokkien mee and pork leg bee hoon. It’s worth a visit if you’re in the area, but I wouldn’t travel all the way just for their fried rice or pao fan.
You know what I find hard to resist? Fried chicken, especially one with the word “famous” as it is like a direct challenge for me to take it...
In conclusion, I wouldn’t have joined any queues for Winner’s Fried Chicken but it’s an option if it’s a quick buy. As for the title of best fried chicken in Singapore, the jury’s still out.
These franchise hawkers operate under the brand’s name, using the same flour and recipe that they’re so well-loved for.
All the confectionery and kueh kueh are traditionally hand-made using the finest ingredients and the best part is yet to be - quantities are very limited, the shutters are closed once they sell out daily.
Such old school shops are real gems that are keeping traditional foods alive! The steam lapis and kueh dadar were really worth the trip to Alexandra Village!
3 reviews of Lina Confectionery "Their love letters (cooked over charcoal) is the best! Their green pea cookies are the best! Melt in your mouth good. Everyone I have given to loves them. You will have to wait until after Chinese New Year and…
I am probably still too young to talk about nostalgia but our meal at New Market Teochew Braised Duck Rice was so satisfying!
My order came with a bowl of rice drenched with their lor and a portion of braised duck meat served separately on another plate with cucumber slices underneath.
Overall I have a satisfying lunch at New Market Teochew Braised Duck Rice. I don't mind returning for a meal if I have craving for braised duck.
I decided to give them another try. I don't think my opinion of them has changed.
My plate of char siew and roasted pork rice comes with an hard-boiled egg and bowl of cabbage soup. Portion wise, it is rather filling for me and I wasn't expecting an egg to be included so I would say $4 for this meal is quite worth it.
It is almost a role reversal! The Pork Belly is firm and tender with a good bite.
I enjoy a bowl of well-made noodles, and Chun Seng Noodle House certainly gave me that.
I do taste some vinegar in the sauce but on the whole, the flavors are well balanced and complemented each other nicely without any trying to outshine the others.
This is likely to be the only place for such hearty burgers with the familiar local flavors and it is definitely worth a try.
It’s refreshing to see traditional restaurants willing to experiment and evolve, crafting new dishes rather than resting on their laurels.
Overall, a pretty delicious burger at a great price point which is comparable to that of fast food joints.
We weren't exactly impressed.
This is a simple yet satisfying Fried Hokkien Mee though not the best that I have tasted but it is good enough.
Not my favourite hokkien mee in Singapore as I prefer the wetter version, but it definitely is an above-average dry plate of goodness!
