Poh Cheu Ang Ku Kueh and Soon Kueh review. Traditional shop at Alexandra Village, Jalan Bukit Merah near Ikea Singapore
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.
Keng Eng Kee opened a new outlet in 2022 at SAFRA Tampines. With the restaurant in the East and the zi char restaurants in West Singapore, they have the whole Singapore covered.
Keng Eng Kee (KEK) Seafood is considered one of the best in Singapore, and for my son’s birthday we went here.
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.
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.
Durian Lab Cafe by Ah Seng Durian in Bukit Merah serves durian-centric cakes and pastries and good Mao Shan Wang ice cream.
The warm MSW Burnt Cruffin tasted, well, burnt more than of durian. The pastry and the chao ta dominated over the durian puree, which I though there could have been a bit more of.
Being a fresh entry into the durian dessert cafe scene, Durian Lab Cafe is going to need some improvements to get off the ground.
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.
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.
The prawns, while sweet, were a bit tough. The noodles were the sticky type, and the broth had a good seafood flavour, but the alkaline taste in the noodles overwhelmed the prawn broth flavour. A bit middling for me. 不会想念.

MARCH 3, 2020 Recommended by Miss Tam Chiak. I’m not sure how I never noticed this stall with its seriously close to half an hour queue. Solid and deliberate slicing skills (刀工). Very nicely …
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.
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.
Nonetheless, those thin silky wonton skins are to die for. It literally slipped through my chopsticks because it was so smooth, especially after being dipped in the shallow puddle of chilli oil.
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!

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.
Hor fun is the main course, with the option of beef, seafood, and fish. Other zi char style dishes like mui fan, ginger, and spring onion sliced fish and beef rice.
I ordered my favorite avocado shake from Mr Avocado Exotic Fruit Juice to go along with it.
The cake was the most attractive of the lot. Compared to the posh cakes that are available these days from the likes of Awfully Chocolate, Chalk Farm and Baker’s Brew, it did not have the depth or sophistication of flavours.
The texture of the cakes were so cottony soft.
I have to say that I was absolutely impressed by the remarkable food that the 28-year-old chef is churning out.
Their menu is kept simple, there are prawn noodle and pork ribs noodles at $3.50 each, for dry and for soup version. There is also an option to have both the prawns and pork ribs at $5 per portion.
The flavour of the noodles were nice in a light savoury kind of way - with the wiry noodles (no alkali taste) laced with lard and those red dyed lean slices of char siew.
Traditional old school wanton mee, with a robust and spicy sauce of sesame oil, lard and chilli sauce. Comforting, not unlike Dover Kai Kee nearby. Not bad, but nothing special I thought. Apparently an old favourite of many, recommended by Jokor Kaki.
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.
