In Singapore, Fatty Cheong at ABC Market is synonymous with "bu jian tian" 不见天 char siew to go with their egg noodles or plain rice.
There are 2 stalls by the same name in this food centre by the same owner, the original stall is to focus on roasted meat and the newer stal...
The char siew was nice.
By Chef Pang Kok Keong. Oily and fragrant, nicely cooked chewy noodles and umami meat filled yong tau foo.
Very soon, you will be able to enjoy grilled seafood at night as Hakka Pang will switch to a ‘seafood shack’ concept called Guppies. Expect a variety of grilled fish and seafood served with different dips.
Pang’s Hakka Noodles, Yong Tau Foo and Fishballs at The Sprout Hub (on the ground of the former Henderson Secondary School).
The noodles were slightly clumpy but the sauce was fragrant savoury and slightly sweet, lifting the noodles. The wantons was nicely marinated and fragrant and a decent sized orb, with smooth skin, but the char siew was again a tough and papery piece.
This wanton noodle is decent but I would not go all the way there for it. However, I do not mind having it if I am in the neighborhood. I would probably just tell the auntie to omit the black sauce.
I'm still missing this place once in a while for it has brought me memories of the past. No doubt that the taste might be simple and bare basic for others, I felt that I still prefer the such old-school taste from time to time.
Offering traditional and authentic Malay cuisines, Nusa & Tara has earned itself another return customer as I will definitely be back to try the Mee Siam and Nasi Lemak!
Small Potatoes Make The Steak Look Bigger recommended the lontong here, and it was really quite good. The gravy packed heat, but had an otherwise gentle savoury lemak flavour.
The dishes on the side may vary from day to day.
What I didn’t tell them was that in a market flooded with factory-made fish balls, $0.60 for authenticity is a steal.
Well, first time visitors to the stall take heed. Do your homework and find out how the stall operates if you do not want to incur the wrath of the lady boss.
Yong kee famous fishball noodle at ABC Market is famous for a good reason. With a history stretching 24 years, the hardworking husband-and-wife team running the stall sure have perfected their recipe for their bestselling fishball noodle. Don’t let this humble dish fool you – it packs a punch! The...
Apparently each outlet handles their soups a bit differently, and this wasn't the one that Michelin blessed. But I liked it.
Popular soups are sold out early, so it is advisable to turn up before the peak meal times.
It is recommended to pair the soups with their signature pumpkin rice, which tastes a tad similar to yam rice, but armed with a fragrance of dried shrimps.
I was asked whether i want to have minced garlic added and as for the chilli sauce as well as vinegar and red cut chillies are available for self-service. Apparently, it seemed to be a little different in taste, the gravy seemed lighter and not as gooey. Or, perhaps, i might have tried other better Lor Mee thus i did not find it as good as it used to be. It is still a comforting taste nonetheless.
Will I Return Again? Overall, the dishes at Abundance are quite good. While it does not serve the traditional type of Taiwanese dishes you will find in places like Eat 3 Bowls and 台ONE味 Tai One Wei, it is worth a try if you are in the vicinity.
Just 5 minutes walk away from Redhill MRT station, you will get to this Abundance Taiwanese Style Cafe that is located under the HDB flats.

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.
Seng Hong Coffee Shop is one of those last surviving old school coffee shop that seemed untouched by time. Visit them while you still can before they bite the dust in this fast paced society.
I love how "crunchy" the mee kia is. Well, not crispy crunchy but al dente crunchy. The marvelous old-school tossing sauce is just enough to coat the noodles without being too wet. You definitely have to ask for their chili sauce even if you cannot take the heat because it is really amazing.
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!
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.
