Peanut Pancake

To me, this is best peanut pancake stall in Singapore. I patronize this stall at least once a week. It has been operating from Pek Kio market for more than 30 years and is now managed by the owner's daughters. The batter is perfectly done and they are very generous with their finely crushed peanuts. To enjoy the pancake, you must eat it hot. Don't pack it into the Styrofoam box. They also make the round red bean and coconut pancakes. Each piece cost 50 cents.

Crispy Biscuit

This shop opposite China Square Food Centre has been around for many years. Tan Hock Seng makes and sells traditional chinese biscuits. On weekday (lunch period) there is always a long queue for their crispy biscuits. So the owner restricted the purchase to 3 packets per customer. The biscuits are really crispy, especially when eaten warm. Inside each biscuit is a salty sweet paste. Each pack contains 10 pieces and cost S$5.

Yong Peng - FishBall Noodles

Yong Peng is the most convenient stopover point on the way to Malacca/KL. Take Exit 241, as it the shortest route to Yong Peng town. Yong Peng is known for its fishball noodles and there are many stalls selling them. We stopped at Restoran Yuen Yew, which is located beside a petrol station, because they claimed to be the original fishball stall. The fishball here is really crunchy and full of fish meat, instead of flour. They also sell fish cake, which is deep fried. Each bowl cost RM$3.00. They also have the dry version which comes with black sauce. But the soup version taste better.

Malacca - Tang Sui (Sweet Dessert)

Located at a lane behind Hotel Formosa is a stall selling traditional tang sui. Elderly people come here to relax or chit chat with the cheerful stall owner and enjoy his hot dessert. He sells only 3 kinds of dessert, Puloh Hitam, Green Bean and Sweet Potato Soup. We ordered the Sweet Potato soup and found it to be very refreshing. The soup is lightly flavoured with ginger and the sweet potato is not over cooked. Each bowl cost RM$1.50. Hotel Formosa is located along Jalan Bunga Raya


Malacca - Mee Kahwin

In Malacca, there is stall selling a unique dish called Mee Kahwin. Khawin means marriage in Malay. This dish is a marriage between Mee Rebus and Indian rojak. And what a delightful marriage this turned out to be. The gravy from the Indian rojak blends very well with the mee rebus gravy. Each plate cost RM$3.00.

Finding this place can be quite tricky. It stall is located inside Restoran Ming Huat, which is at the turning into the Portuguese Settlement, along Jalan Ujong Pasir. The stall operates from 9.30am to 3.oopm.


Malacca - Pineapple Tarts

It took me three trips to Malacca before I found this "shop" selling pineapple tarts. Because, it is not really a "shop" but a house. Everything here is made by hand. From cutting the pastry to patiently filling each tart with pineapple jam. There is no walk-in sales. You must order in advance. When we arrived in Malacca our first stop was this "shop". We placed our order and came back 3 hrs later to collect our freshly baked tarts. Each box of 20 tarts cost RM8. The "shop" is located at 307A Jalan Parameswara.

When I learned that this restaurant will be closing shop in two day's time, I quickly brought my two makan kakis to enjoy this food. My previous meal here was on 23 Nov 2005 (See posting on this date). Unlike my previous dinner, the restaurant was quite crowded today. As usual, the food was simple and consistently good. We had the Fried Sweet pork, Broad bean vermicelli, Tofu and potato vermicelli, Fried Sweet potato, Pork ball soup, Steamed pork dumpling and Red Bean paste pancake. The fried sweet potato (top right pic) was excellent. It was fried and coated with sugar syrup that harden when dipped into a bowl of cold water. This simple and healthy dish is rarely found in Spore. For 7 dishes, our total bill was $59.00 including rice and tea. Will having our dinner we saw two large refrigerator being wheeled into the restaurant. The departing Boss told us that it belongs to the new owner which will be taking over on 21 Dec 05. We spoke briefly to the new lady boss. She told us that they will continue to serve Northern Eastern Chinese food and the menu will be expanded to include more new dishes. We will be back.


Wantan Noodles

This wantan noodles stall has no name. Just a sign proclaiming "36 M.S. OWN MADE WAN TON NOODLE". The noodles are springy and soft to the bite. The chilli sauce is not too spicy. The char siew is very thinly sliced. Each bowl cost $3 and comes with four wantans. The stall is located at Blk 204 Serangoon Central inside Li Yuen Eating House.

FREE Vegetarian Food

The Singapore Buddhist Lodge, at Kim Yan Road, provides one of the best vegetarian food on the island. And it is free for all, regardless of religion. Every day, buffet style lunch and dinner are served. Today, being a full moon day, additional dishes are provided. I counted at least 10 different types of vegetarian dishes. There were samosas, mushrooms, curry veg, chap chye, lady fingers, fried noodles, seaweed, tofu, salted veg, porridge and desserts. Overall the quality of cooking is quite good. There are two serving points. One on the ground floor and the other on the 1st level. Lunch starts at 11.30am. You have to wash the plates yourself after eating or you can choose to use disposable plates.

Far From A Maddening Crowd

Tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood, somewhere near Hillview, is a shop serving Thai Muslim Seafood. This shop also sells excellent prata and teh tarik. Good place for a leisurely breakfast or for a relaxing cup of tea in the evening.

Peranakan Food

If you like Peranakan food, go to Helen's Deli. This no-frills eatery along Upper Thomson Road (near Sin Ming) serves excellent Peranakan food. Three dishes stood out. Helen's Curry chicken, Fishmaw soup and Fried Kangkong. The curry chicken was very tender and not too spicy. The fishmaw was stuffed with minced meat and boiled with bamboo shoots. When we were there on Sat night, the Fried Kangkong was sold out. So we asked the staff if they could replace the Kangkong with Kailan. They agreed. And we had one of the best Fried Kailan, ever. The taste was in the special chilli sauce use for frying the vegetable. For dessert, we had chendol and durian puff. The chendol was so so, but the durian puffs were good. I saw many customers buying durian puffs by the boxes.

We were at the Whampoa Bus Interchange for Thosai breakfast when Sunny decided to buy some lopez from the Malay stall selling Nasi Padang. Surprising, the lopez was good. The rice was well steamed (not too hard) and the gula maleka not too sweet.

Whenever XiaoChi stopovover in Singapore he will ask for chilli crabs. No other countries in the world are able to cook chilli crabs the way we do it. It is finger licking good. We took him to Jumbo restaurant at Serangoon Gardens and the chilli crabs did not disappoint us. Also good was the crabs steamed with eggs and steamed prawns. What are you waiting for Brendan?

Hong Kong people called it congee, we called it porridge. Whatever the name, the congee at Wah Noogee is so smooth you could drink it. This newly opened eatery located at Carlton Hotel is a sure winner for lovers of Congee. We had the "boat" congee, which came with meat balls, cuttlefish and peanuts. The restaurant also sells noodles, which I find quite ordinary. While waiting for your food, take a look at the ceiling. The orange lamp shades are quite artistic.

Chinese Rojak

You really have to eat this rojak to know how good it is. Ask for extra dough fritter (yau char kwai) when you order from Eat May Know stall at Bendemeer Food Centre. The fritters are still very crunchy after mixing with prawn paste as it is freshly made by the same stall.
