Jaggi's

 Punjabi North Indian Cuisine

Have passed by this place on quite a number of occasions.Always though this was another North Indian restaurant,with high price ala carte menu.
One occasion the door was open saw people queuing at what looked like a display counter.What else went in to see ....










Yes,it was a food display counter,there was no ala carte menu.You have order the food at the counter,self service,take the food to the table yourself.There were no price tags or signs.











It's a very neat,clean place,quite spacious .This was a lunch visit went early,the crowd came a bit later....

 All the dishes were served on a sliver platter.

Hong Kee Porridge ..Commonwealth

Sometimes we find a gem of a taste at the unexpected places.

First I went to this food centre to try a noodles,which did not meet my expectation,but discover a gem of a wanton noodles link at this food centre.Now I get to taste one hell of a tasting porridge.


 Looking so plain and watery,served with cut chillies.What was install was big surprise by itself.The pork porridge.

Yue Lai Xiang Chen Teng

Cheng Teng since 1939... Bedok

As I was having the kang kong cuttlefish,I couldn't resist noticing the constant queue,at the stall next to it.
These people,sure have long history with their cheng teng(the cuttlefish kang kong was started by the same person).This would be most probably,be the only stall I have come across or maybe the only stall  in Singapore that only sells cheng teng and nothing else.
My first taste of cheng teng was about some 35 years ago.The flavour of the dried logan from the boiled logan and ingredients were just incredible.And I became a instant fan of cheng teng.

Yue Lai Xiang Cuttlefish Kang Kong.

With over 70 years....this should be it....??



I like  Kang Kong Cuttlefish.Though not many stalls sell this nowadays,I just can't seem to find a stall, to really satisfy me or at least say this was worth my trips for once.. Having heard about this stalls a couple of times,decided to give try.

Afandi Hawa & Family ...Mee Rebus

Fandi Mona.... no now..Afandi Hawa & Family Mee Rebus



I use to travel from my place in Yishun to Haig Road just to have my favourite Mee Rebus fits.The only stall I thought,which was worth my trip to have a bowl of mee rebus.

13 Nov 2010

Jian Kang Noodles

This was accidental discovery.I was there to try out another stall in this food centre.But this stall with it's constant queue caught my eyes.After one bite,I have already visited,this stall trice in a week.


First visit had wanton noodles.

 The serving portion was quite big for $2.50.Asked  him to do his way.Topped with char siew and some veges.The char siew  is not the sweet type.

Yantra ..A Hidden Gem

Deepavali  Special Buffet......
A Hidden Gem in a Shopping Mall


Went there to try out the Sunday Brunch.But the menus were changed .I was told the spread was changed for a Deepavali Special Buffet..






















The outside could be very deceiving .Step in...the atmosphere changes.A classy,very nice posh,spacious,cozy ambience with a lot of  natural light coming in .There is this a nice,very good feel to the place.

Chendol

Almost the Traditional way....
Chendol you can find it almost in every dessert stall...

I remember when decades back the way chendol,(which are made from mung bean) were sold.They do their own chendol.You won't know what they selling,unless you familiar in that area..In a make shift push cart stall with big stainless steel container,along the roadside.The chendol drink was inside the the container .Ice shaved when ordered,the chendol drink poured into a small bowl.And the taste....

Jie Bakery & Confectionery

Old is Gold....Traditionally Baked Bread Loaves.


In this rundown dark messy shop,there is pure gold mine.
A bite of this bread,brought back flashes of memories of  my childhood days.Flashes of beautiful,carefree childhood days are so fresh, hard to forget.Simple things like,running after a bread selling van,can be so joyful.

10 Oct 2010

Che Jian Hokkien Mee

The other stall at Chomp Chomp.

 I thought only  Ah Hock ruled at Chomp Chomp for Hokkien Mee. But this Hokkien Mee stall "Che Jian" does command,it's equal amount of followers at Chomp Chomp and the wait time for a Hokkien Mee can be equally long too.Waited for around 25 minutes.

Hong Wen Mutton Soup

 Beauty World Centre  ...Bukit Timah

It's been at least maybe over 2 decades,I had this mutton soup....

This was when,they were  just starting out there.I still could recognize the man,selling the mutton soup..I used to work around Bukit Timah area back then and Beauty World Centre was one of my, often lunching place.
It's an open roof top food centre.The food centre has not changed much,even though there has been some renovation works.

We decided to go with the buffet.

Astons.....

Express.....Kopitiam...



Aston Express...They are suppose to be cheap good western food with some high quality taste to give the  local heartlands stalls  a run for the money.Have visited a number of Astons' Specialties and Express.
And this Express stall more often than any other Astons.(I work nearby.)

Annalaskmi.....Payment... As You Wish??

               This Branch is Closed

This restaurant has a very unique payment style.
Pay what you feel like paying.

Yes! sounds crazy,maybe they have a screw loose.Here you eat as much as you want,and pay what you want to pay.Sounds too good to be true but it is the truth.























Once they had,one of most....maybe the most posh,expensive,high end ,classy,Indian vegetarian restaurant,in Singapore,in Excelsior Hotel.

Tiong Bahru Lor Mee.....Bukit Batok

To Taste The True Orginal Tiong Bahru Lor Mee.

Decades back in Tiong Bahru market hawker centre. A never ending stream of queue can be spotted.And  this stall commands the queue anytime of the day,till they close.I have eaten this Tiong Bahru Lor Mee couple of times,decades back,in Tiong Bahru market hawker centre.
 Yes,this is the original Lor Mee stall that commanded the queue in Tiong Bahru.I still recognize the people from the stall.

Jumbo Seafood.....

At Riverside Point....


The last time we went,we could not get inside seat.This time around they showed us a round table which had about 6 people already seated.The whether was cloudy,not hot as the  last time we came,so we opted to seat outside.
Homemade Beancurd.$12.00.This is buddy's favourite,every time he see this in the menu,he will surely order.It was soft,too eggy for my liking and too much starch in the sauce.But still quite nice enough.

Duman Road ...Char Siew Wanton Mee

The other....Wanton Mee

When I told my friends I just had Duman Road wanton mee,they straight away presume,it was the other one in basement .They did not even realise there is another wanton mee stall,in the food centre.
Less known,than their counter part at basement .This stall commands, their own faithful followers.
