Supposedly quite famous, I decided to try this Xiang Xiang char Kway Teow. There was no queue and they whipped up the dish pretty quickly. Right after I paid, I got my dish immediately, it was almost as if they had already cooked it before I had even ordered.The Diah was lukewarm but I did see them serve it out of the wok, so I was okay with it. It didn't have a lot of taste, but it had some wok Hei, so I was okay with that. Definitely not the best plate of char Kway Teow I had but for $3, I think t was decent. But I wouldn't be trying it again, definitely try other stalls. Probably this is why this stall has no queue at all continue reading
Changi village Food Centre had undergone a 10 months renovation last year and was re-opened just this year on January. Although the hawker centre still look the same with its original blue metal roof facade intact, many stalls was seen relocated. However with the enhancements, there were more seating available as well as improved toilet facilities.With a new brand new appearance from Xiang Xiang's signboard, it was a good showcase to customers that they had won good comments from the media on their specialties.Xiang Xiang served only 4 dishes, namely: Fried Rice, Fried Hokkien, Prawn Mee, Fried Kway Teow and Mee Goreng.Every order is cooked fresh, these flat rice noodles were stir-fried on the spot with soy sauce, cockles, beansprouts, prawn, chinese sausage and egg. It packed the kind of traditional flavour I had longed for - my Char Kway Teow fix! The amount of sweetness was perfect from the bits of eggs and black sauce, most importantly they were not as greasy as I thought. Char Kway Teow with prawn is not really a common sight in hawker centre and they have it!Awarded by TheNewPaper as the Best Hokkien Mee in Changi Village, they did live up to their name. My smallest ordered portion was in fact generous and totally out of my expectation. It does really give an oomph!The plate of mixed yellow and white noodles were moist enough to my liking cooked with their flavourful prawn broth. Squeeze some lime juice over them to enjoy a tangy and refreshing taste of the Hokkien Mee. Yummy!The 4 items sold by Xiang Xiang is a good place to "show off" the local cuisine to our foreign pals especially if they choose to dine in Hakwer Centre. Having said that, considering the cost and quality, it isn't too bad a choice after all. continue reading
I was craving for some hokkien noodles and decided to try this stall; have previously tried the hokkien mee from another stall at changi village hawker and was mediocre. There wasn't any queue and I got my food in 5 mins. Amount of ingredients added - prawns and squid were alright, and the noodles was moist with broth. However, it's not the best i've tried and the broth is not too flavourful. continue reading
Colleague drove us out to pack our lunch again from Changi Village. After walking around the market, I bought the Chinese-styled Seafood Mee Goreng and it turns out to be quite a real disappointment. Noodles are stir-fried just nice, but not only it is not spicy enough, it is totally tasteless. Ingredients are almost non-existent as I can only see 2 small prawns and it cost $4. Don't think I'll buy from this stall again. continue reading
