    Leng Huat Fishball Noodle @ #02-89 Taman Jurong Market & Cooked Food Centre



    Mee Pok was perfectly al dente, coated with tasty, tangy chilli sauce. Fishballs were big and meaty. This stall used to be really popular at the old 'no. 1 market' at Taman Jurong, but after it was demolished, shifted to this multi-storey building, and lost quite a bit of their customers. The auntie told me that the taxi drivers used to stop by at the roadside to patronise them, but @ this building, they couldnt do so, so stopped coming..

    Rong Xing Hakka Yong Tau Fu @ 02-01 Tanjong Pagar Food Centre

    Wanton Mee @ Wah Kee Noodles @ 01-125 Amoy Food Centre



    Read that this stall was formerly Guang Dong Wanton Mee from Maxwell Food Centre. First, I must say, it was very good, I enjoyed it. BUT I belong to the school that an excellent wanton mee must have excellent noodles, and its noodles, to me, were only so so, So how is it good ?



    well, it's the absolutely sinfully fatty and perfectly caramelized Char Siew and the tasty wantons that made it come good...  and you can add $1 to get 3 huge prawn dumplings which were crunchy and succulent.

    and since the wanton mee was so good, I went on another day and tried their Beef Brisket Noodles, which I heard was better:







    the beef texture is a little tough, but the gravy.. whoa.. absolutely delectable... heard that they cook the gravy with Nam Yue or fermented beancurd...

    this stall is definitely worth a visit !

    Alkaff Mansion Ristorante at 10, Telok Blangah Green

    finally managed to make my way down to this refurbished grand old building...



    It's now an Italian restaurant, helmed by a chef who was formerly from Senso and Palio. The place is beautifully refurbished, with old tiles and new steel-and-glass wine storage in the middle.



    so how did the food measure up? First, the bread :



    breadsticks were crispy, focaccia underneath was served warm. off to a good start.

    Wife selected the set lunch and chose the foie gras. It was nice, but not something extraordinary, unlike....



    Smoked Sturgeon with avocado and crab served with citrus fruit emulsion

    an absolutely beautiful appetizer .. a layer of smoked fish provided the base, followed by crabmeat, avocado paste, and topped by fish roe, and a pretty flower... the taste was as good as the presentation. fantastic !





    Angelhair Vongole

    plenty of juicy clams in al dente Capellini in white wine sauce. very good, but the next star was:



    Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragout

    This is another signature dish... Marinated for 7 days in red wine, the wild boar ragout was absolutely divine.. with the al dente pasta, and enhanced by the sheet of aged cheese, which it was served wrapped in.. Superb !

    meal ended with a lava cake which was pretty normal:



    but I think I have seen and tasted enough to want to come back again.

    Swee Guan Hokkien Mee @ Geylang Lorong 29..

    Arrived at bad timing .. the fella just started cooking one batch, so there was a long queue waiting...



    Finally..



    It was yummy... had a slightly smoky taste... loved the fragrance...

    but the star of the night was the Pork Belly Satay we ordered from Kwong satay in the same coffeeshop :



    it was absolutely amazing... worth every cent of the dollar it cost !

    Blanco Court Kueh Chap 白兰阁粿汁@  #02-02, Holland Drive Market & Food Centre




    very well-stewed intestines and other ingredients, soaked in savoury gravy. The Kway was also very smooth and delicious !


    Chen Ji Ke Jia Niang Dou Fu @ #01-27, Clementi 448 Market & Food Centre



    all the YTF items were delicious, esp the ngoh hiang and the meatballs... I even saw aunties coming and filling their bowls with like 20 items to queue up patiently, and after that, tell the stallholder to just cook and put in plastic bag, then they just takeaway the whole bag of YTF items home !

    The noodles isn't anything much (in fact very little), sauce is not bad, but the real stars are the fried stuff. So crispy, So crunchy, So delicious !

    Lee Kheong Roasted Delicacy @ 02-15 Hong Lim Food Centre

    This stall was originally from People's Park Food Centre.. it moved across the busy Cross Street junction and is now at Hong Lim...



    First, the Sio Bak ... crispy, savoury, yet not very fatty, it's really good !



    The Char Siew was perfectly caramelized ... excellent stuff, except that I wished that they can come in bigger pieces

    to those who want to find it, it's next to Tai Hwa Bak Chor Mee and opposite Outram Park Char Kway Teow ... look for the blue sign !

    2 prawn noodles in PSA Tanjong Pagar Complex @ 7, Keppel Road...

    Liang Seah Street Prawn Mee @ #01-03 /04 Orchid Coffeeshop



    prawns were served shelled, but halved. Quite fresh, though some may find it quite troublesome to have to peel. Chilli was tangy, and yes, they serve all kinds of noodles, including mee kia, which I find so-so, and it came swimming in quite a bit of soup, so not really dry (I like my noodles dry and oily). Ribs were tender, and cooked well, as they fell of the bones and cartilage. The soup was excellent, really tasty. Above cost me $4.50.


    Amoy St Boon Kee Prawn Noodle @ #01-01/02, HLY Eating House



    The dry version came swimming in a thick layer of ketchup-based chilli sauce, something really different from the normal dry prawn noodles. Extra marks for being unique, and in a pleasant way, as it tasted pretty good actually. The soup was also quite intense and slurpilicious.



    Prawns were deshelled, which made it much easier to eat. Helps that they were fresh too !



    Ribs look tender, but they were actually a little tougher than the Liang Seah one.



    Last but not least, the $4 version I ordered came with 'powder' intestines. Went very nicely with the noodles.

    last but not least, was the very interesting Kailan cooked in two ways...standard kailan stalks with deep fried kailan leaves.. v interesting... almost everyone thought the latter was seaweed.
