REVIEW: Good hawker food in Singapore - Sumo Big Prawn Noodle and Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles

Heard rave reviews about this super worth it big prawn noodles at ang mo kio. It's also all over social media! I went down during one of the evenings and there were like absolutely no queue. XD Lucky me! I heard that there's always long queue and that could take up to 45 minutes to 1 hour. The picture below did not show the food justice as i was surprised it came in such a large bowl. You could also see the generous amount of Clams and also the crayfishes surfacing on the soup. There are 3 cray fishes sliced into half in this bowl of soup. The bee hoon is well hidden beneath all these seafood goodness, and also the soup is actually kind of sweet. Very flavorful indeed. This crayfish beehoon soup costs me $13 and it is so worth it with these generous portion of seafood. Besides this, they also offer  Prawn Bee Hoon Soup ($5), Sumo Big Prawn Bee Hoon Soup ($8), Japanese Lala Soup ($6.90) and also Lobster and Big Prawn Soup  ($24.90).  Best time to go is probably during weekday evenings.

Opening hours: Tue-Sun 9am to 4pm and 4.30pm to 9pm
Closed on Mondays.



I also visited Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles during the evenings. Also no crowd at all. There's like probably 2-3 people ahead of me in the queue. :) What really attracts me to this place is that they actually gotten a a MICHELIN Star. I have never heard of hawker food getting michelin star. Correct me if i'm wrong. Anyways i think It will probably taste better with chili but I don't eat that~ anyways they have added vinegar into the sauce. Something normal stalls don't add. Noodles is springy and al dente on point. Everything is good from the pork to pork liver. Not sure why this is 1 Michelin star though but it is indeed yummy.

Address: 466 Crawford Lane, Tai Hwa Eating House #01-12 Singapore 190465 
Opening Hours: 9:30am – 9:00pm (Closed on 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month)

RECIPE: CREAMY GARLIC MOZZARELLA MUSHROOMS PASTA

Recipe adapted from http://therecipecritic.com

Used Mozzarella instead of Parmesan cos ran out of it. haha. I do not think it will make much difference.
Even though the recipe only include mushrooms as the main ingredient, i added mine with meatballs, prawns and tomatoes as i prefer a variety of food. I feel like top cafes in Singapore should include a variety of pasta menu because there are so many different ways to cook pasta.

REVIEW: The Daily Press and Atlas Coffeehouse

I am not sure when The daily press has these eggs benedicts on their menu. I was hesitant to try initially because it looks plain to me? Good food in Singapore is hard to find and The daily press has been introducing new food items, from pastas to now egg benedicts and white and black cold drip coffee. They also have seasonal food items like these. The daily press is also my go-to cafe to visit when i think about where to eat in toa payoh. It is definitely one of the top cafes in Toa Payoh. You can see from my pictures that the hollandaise sauce covers the poached egg generously. I like that the turkey bacon is Not that crispy. 

Address: 126 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh, 310126
Opening Hours: 10.30am - 9.30pm everyday




I also went back to the Atlas coffeehouse for lunch, This was after my second last exam. Here is the Barista breakfast! 2 espresso shot is everything for students like me.. Kept me awake till late night. Just what I needed! Now that exams are over~ I should cut down on coffee. 😆

Closed Mon

Farmers pasta and barista breakfast coffee at atlas coffeehouse. This consists of spaghetti with asparagus, cherry tomatoes, basil and shimeji mushrooms and is also so so yummy.

REVIEW: Otoko Ramen and Kanshoku Ramen Bar

So, the arm rest of my computer chair Broke. Wtf!! I had to go to queensway IKEA to get a new one. People actually suggested that i buy one at courts which is relatively nearer but..... i prefer to buy my furniture at Ikea even though it is slightly pricey. 

Address: #01-16, 321 Alexandra Rd
Opening hours: 11am - 10pm daily

Anyways i had dinner at Otoko Ramen which is at Alexandra Central that day. Alexandra Central is still a relatively new mall.. there wasn't much people eating at Otoko Ramen during dinner time. I ordered the shoyu ramen and gyoza. They also have free flow hard boiled eggs. The broth is alright. Would have preferred it to be thicker and more flavorful. The egg could have been soft boiled like onsen egg with the runny egg york. The noodles are al dente too. Having eaten ramen in japan makes me abit skeptical about the standards in Singapore. This bowl of ramen could have been better.



I have also went to the kanshoku ramen bar! Would have preferred them to serve the ramen slightly hotter but this is the Bomb!! The truffle is super prominent here and slurping the al dente noodles is so shiok! i can't even express the taste explosion in my mouth. The char siew is quite tender and easy to chew. :)

Address: ION Orchard #B3-18, 2 Orchard Turn Singapore 238801
Opening hours: 11am - 10pm daily

REVIEW: Now Noodles+ and Waan Cha at Novena

Not sure why the workplace has power shutdowns often and we were also forced to take time offs and leaves, >.> Anyways due to that, i have time to go to Novena for lunch before heading home! Since the social media is raving about the mee tai mak with century egg, i have decided to drop by now noodles+ to try it out! Now Noodles+ is located at square 2.

Address: #02-65 Square 2, 10 Sinaran Drive, 307506, Square 2, 307506
Opening Hours: 11am - 9pm daily

The mee tai mak is well-cooked but i felt that the spiciness is too overpowering. It is like all i'm tasting is the chili. It does provide that extra kick for chili lovers but it's a no-no for me as i can't handle food that is too spicy! And it tastes the same with or without the century egg. lol It is also super overpriced at $9.80. They also offer dry mee siam, vegetarian mee goreng and heng hwa noodle soup at the same price. 




After that, i walked over to Novena Regency to buy some iced Thai milk tea. They have 3 different sizes and I bought the large one which is $3.80. 

Address: #01-45,, 275 Thomson Rd, Singapore 307645
Opening Hours: Mon - Fri 11.30am - 9pm
Sat - Sun 12pm - 7pm
