Calling all vegetarians! Here's another Korean option for you. If you heard of The Boneless Kitchen and love what they are serving, you will be glad that the people behind Daehwa are the same.

Before we begin our gastronomic korean vegetarian dinner, we learnt that their food is free of MSG and free of five alliums. As a non vegetarian, I'm quite concern being real thirsty after some vegetarian meals and I'm glad that they are taking care of it.

Just like any other Korean Restaurant, these side dishes given are refillable.

For those who love Korean Cuisine will be familiar with the Army Stew or Budae Jjigae. This comforting stew is definitely one of the popular hot pot dishes in Korea. Suitable for 2 to 4 pax and comes with 2 bowls of rice.

Army Jeongol 부대찌개- $42

With a balance of spiciness, saltiness and slight sweetness. Being a vegetarian dish, you still get to see luncheon meat and hotdog in the stew but its mocked meat. Other ingredients include cucumber, tofu, noodles, mushrooms, rice cake etc. The initial spicy taste was not very distinct till the broth was refilled at a later stage.

Woot! I love this classic savory dish. The sweet potato noodles is paired with mushrooms and asparagus topped with coriander and sesame seeds. It was flavorful and texture was chewy and springy. Recommended!

Japchae 잡채 - $15

 It's not the typical starchy kind of Kimchi Pancake. Tasty when paired with the sauce. However,the circumference of the pancake was charred and hardened, not to my liking, otherwise overall is good.

Kimchi Jeon 김치전- $8

Also known as the squid rings. Wow! This dish swept my feet off. It's meatless yet taste like one. Don't do without the bean paste that comes along with it.
Ojingo Ring 오징어 - $6

Ojingo Ring 오징어 - $6

 
The sinful cheesy bowl of French Fries with Truffle. Definitely worth the sharing the calories as the portion is big. Needless to say, they are generously tossed with grated cheese, mayonnaise and fragrantly served. Bet you cannot stop at just one mouthful.

Cheese Truffle Gamja Twigim 트뤼플치즈감자튀김 - $12

For those who love Boneless Kitchen and do not want to travel into the Eastern part of Singapore, Daehwa will be a very good Korean vegetarian alternative for those who reside in the West.

Ah Kow Mushroom Minced Pork Mee Smile Jul 23, 2018

If you love BCM (Bah Chor Mee) you would have probably heard of Ah Kow Mushroom Minced Pork Mee which was previously located in Hong Lim food Center. The stall has been around since 1945, passing recipe from the original owner to his sons.

Everytime, without fail, I will get to Ah Kow's Die Hard Supporters adding to its long snaking queues. What's so great about the bowls of noodle, let's check it out.

Our frequent order from the stall will be Bee Tai Mak Dry in its smallest available portion at $4 per bowl. For those who prefer more vinegar in their minced meat noodle will definitely appreciate the "uncontrolled" use of black vinegar in their noodles.

Minced Meat Noodle (Dry) - $4 (Small)

Noodles were springy and complemented well with the sauce. Ingredients were generous in its thick cut braised mushrooms, handful of minced meat and noodles stand up with its fragrant fried sole fish.

Minced Meat Noodle (Dry) - $6 (Big)

Overall, Ah Kow's noodle is some food that we will return for its taste and generous portion.

Apart from food, I notice that the stall owner has passion in running the business. On several occasions, I noticed that his white shirt was totally drenched either in his sweat or most probably from the steaming vapour of his soup, but such thing has never stop him from serving out more delicious bowls of Minced Meat Noodle!

Thai Boat Noodle Smile Jul 11, 2018

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2018/07/thai-boat-noodle.html

Visiting the old school building, Beauty World, it is less likely you will skip this Thai Boat Noodle Shop that is tuck at the corner of the 1st Floor. Food menu from Thai Boat Noodle is pretty extensive with the usual Thai Snacks and common beverages.

Both the Lemon and Milk Tea are pretty satisfying.

Thai Ice Lemon Tea & Thai Ice Tea - $2.50 Each

The presentation looks like what I had in Bangkok in somewhere near victory Monument. The soup that comes along with the boat noodle is rich and in dark brown color, totally identical to what I had. Not only that, it was tasty and I am so please with the meat ball too.

Boat Noodle Pork - $5

While for the Beef Boat Noodle, the texture of meat is similar to what we have in the Pork Boat Noodles. They are tender and tasty.

I find that this is the closest Thai Boat Noodle I ever had in Singapore that has the taste of what I'm looking for. Service wise, they are friendly and most of the staff in kitchen are Thai workers thus the quality and authenticity of taste are for sure verified. Now that we need not fly direct to Bangkok for a bowl of Thai Boat Noodle, just head down to Beauty World and it will definitely fix your craving.

https://www.umakemehungry.com/2018/06/thye-hong-fishball-noodle.html

Thye Hong Fishball Noodle is one of the recommended to eat places in Bukit Batok. Although I'm not a fishball noodle lover, I'm trying to appreciate and find out what has kept people coming back and join the queue. This was my second visit and the first visit I felt that their fishball noodle was nothing out of the ordinary.

On this visit, I can finally understand why. Their fishballs are supple and bouncy, with no uniform sizes. Why? If you do not know, these fishballs are all handmade from scratch from Yellowtail Fish. Besides that, Thye Hong Fishball Noodle has a long history with recipe passing down from their father.

Bee Tai Mak Dry - $3.50

Beside selling the noodles, if you like their hand made fish cakes, you can also order separately as an additional topping to your meal.
