Deanna's Kitchen & Xie Kee Hokkien Mee

1) Deanna's Kitchen is a relatively new halal hawker store at Toa Payoh. Malay friends can visit the market and try this out. It is located at Toa Payoh West Market & Food Centre and is only open from Friday to Sunday. I went on a Saturday and the hawker centre was frigging packed full of people. I ordered the prawn noodles with clams which cost $6.50. 

A bowl of noodles with so MANY clams is totally worth it. The soup stock is sweet and flavorful with a tinge of peppery aftertaste but i feel like it is not as rich as Sumo Big Prawn Noodles. Nonetheless, the bowl of noodles was good and affordable overall with the amount of ingredients.

2) Xie Kee Hokkien Mee is located at Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre. I have been wanting to try this particular store out since it is quite popular and is located along the way to school! So school has started and i have been busy with assignments. :( I had a saturday class last week so i  took the opportunity to go see if this store is open for lunch before heading to school. I was quite lucky and the store is open after the third time visiting this food centre. This food centre is always crowded but somehow i always manage to find a seat. 

The noodle that they use is the flat kind which different from other stores. I can definitely taste some wok hei in it but i feel like this was kind of just above average and lacking in taste. I wouldn't say it is extremely tasty but you can try it out if you're in the vicinity?

1) Japanese Vegetable Curry rice. Not sure if the curry cube is vegan but i used only vegetables here. There's potatoes, baby carrots and corn, shiitake mushrooms and brown enoki mushrooms. Used japanese rice too. This is really easy to make. You cook the ingredients first, then put in water just enough to cover whatever there's inside. Put in the curry cube when the water is boiling and stir to make sure the cube melt into the water. Let it simmer for maybe 5- 10 minutes and stir occasionally.

2) Tomato based pasta with salmon. I cooked the salmon in balsamic sauce and basil. Best to cook the salmon in 5 minutes with medium heat to to maintain tenderness of meat. I then cook the enoki mushrooms and added the pasta sauce afterwards. I finally pour the sauce onto the plate of pasta.

3) Pesto pasta with cheese sausage. I have an extra sausage left from the breakfasts that i have been making. I cooked the enoki mushrooms, white button mushrooms and chopped cheese sausage in pesto sauce and then pour it onto the pasta. Pesto pasta is one of my fav food and western food stores outside rarely has this dish. I usually buy the pasta genovese sauce from fairprice.

4) Thai Green curry with rice. I have this pack of deSIAM, Thai Green Curry Paste sitting in my fridge for a very long time from a past purchase from iHerb. This requires coconut milk. I have been putting this off for a very long time cos lazy to buy. LOL. I finally bought it from sheng shiong, Ingredients here are baby carrots and corn, chicken and shiitake mushrooms. Firstly, you pour the curry pack into a pan and stir fry it until fragrant. Secondly, you put the chicken inside and cook until ready. Thirdly, you put the rest of the ingredients inside and pour the coconut milk in and also 1 cup of water. You can gauge how much water you need based on how many milk you're using. Lastly, let it cook for around 10 minutes and you're ready to serve. :) This particular brand of green curry boasts rich flavor and subtle spiciness. Worth a try.

Korean food at Toa Payoh #hawkerfare

I have explored the mini army stew in my previous post and i am now back to Man's Kitchen & Waker Chicken for more! Trying the Waker original chicken, kimchi fried rice and bibimbap. I only realised they had a 'tender' version of the chicken after my order came. :S The waker original chicken seems more like breast meat to me? If it is breast meat, it is quite nicely done. The chicken is not tough at all. The bibimbap however was quite disappointing. okay so it doesn't have much sauce cos bibimbap is like that. lol i really can't appreciate this kind of rice dish. Kimchi fried rice is served on a hot plate  but portion is really too little. I do not expect these kind of store in a coffeeshop to have restaurant standard but it is really nice to see people putting in effort and serve affordable korean food.
