Popping by the East Side of Singapore and we got ourselves dinner at Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup. It has been a while since I visited them a few years back and I was surprised by how much they have expanded from just a stall front to a few in the same place.

Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup
Queue was unavoidable during peak period and to be honest parking around the vicinity is not an easy task though Free Parking is available.

Orders were quick to serve, although the soup may looked watery with spring and fried onions. The consistency of herbal taste is good. Rather, it was addictive and I would say there is a good "depth" in the soup.

Texture of Mee Sua was just right and was not too lumpy. I had totally enjoyed the simple tastes through the bowl of soup in mix pork.

Portion was reasonable and lean meat was tender. Kidneys had been well handled leaving no trace of foul smell and what I like best was those thinly sliced livers that was not overly hard to bite on.

Besides being famous for its kidney Mee Sua, they are quite famous for their Cze Char too.

Stirred Fried Vegetables with Garlic
Prawn paste chicken was notable, at least alot better than my last round of prawn paste chicken else where. Exterior was very crispy and at the same time also burning hot as they were just taken out of the oil pot. Just alone without the lime and belachan, they were good enough.

The settings of the eating place make me feel like dining in Malaysia although the currency conversation rate can't really match the comparison. Overall, such specialty is rather unique in Singapore and they had maintained a reputable name throughout the years.

Kim Keat Hokkien Mee OK Jul 19, 2016

My long overdue "To Eat List" has been revived and YES I managed to visit this Claypot Hokkien Mee in Toa Payoh that went abit viral on the social media last year due to its inspiring stories behind.

After ordering your desired portion (you can order with or without claypot), you can have your buffet of lime and chilli at the table right in front of the stall. The chilli is not overly spicy but it goes well with the noodles.

Luckily, the wait was not that long and our pot of food came within 10 minutes of ordering. The hit of aroma and sizzling sound from the claypot draw our full attention as soon as it was on the table. That was the first time I ever had Hokkien Mee from an earthen claypot.

We had the $10 portion which I think was good for 2-3 pax. Besides being served in a claypot, they gave a different feel from the mainstream hokkien mee as you can see significance differences in the ingredients.

Claypot Hokkien Mee - $10

A good few pieces of tasty "Sio Bak" (Roasted Pork Belly) had been given and apparently, you get to see "La La" in it, which is not common other than the usual prawns, squid, pork belly, pork lards and eggs.

Crispy dark brown pork belly was delicious! It might be a little salty but it taste good alone with its crackling skin.

As a whole in terms of Hokkien Mee, it does have its consistency but still lacking of a good strong stock punch that will actually lift the dish up. Noodles was wet enough, wasn't the dry version that I have read. Personally, I was kind of disappointed about taste but still its a good to know about such dish with tasty pork belly exists.

K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet OK Jul 19, 2016

Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Buffet | Korean BBQ

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/kcook-korean-bbq-buffet.html

Despite having the negative thought of smelling like a walking korean BBQ after every BBQ meal, I manage to get myself seated down at the Korean BBQ Buffet, K Cook in Westgate. Ever since its opening in Orchard 2014, K Cook has been regarded as one of the top 10 Korean BBQ place.

K Cook Korean BBQ & Steamboat
Living in the West for a few decades, there isn't much Korean BBQ options that we can choose from. In fact this opening is something that Westies can rejoice in since it is opened at the heart of Jurong East. Like the usual Korean BBQ places, they are installed with hanging vacuums to withdraw the smoke into the exhaust.

K Cook on the other hand had introduced a new concept of marrying Korean BBQ with Steamboat in the Westgate outlet, thus diners can enjoy the best of both worlds, having barbecued meat as well as steamboat session. Wouldn't it be nice?

Though limited, K Cook Buffet spread are considerably decent, dividing into sections, raw meats,vegetables, garnishing, soup, drinks and cook food.

Cook food was constantly kept warm in the skillet with electric stove below. Japchae, their glass noodles alone was rather salty in my opinion and was not to my liking.

As for the meat balls which contains both pork and beef with gravy drenched all over, they were soft in bites and not too bad. Pretty good stuff to fill your hungry stomach first while waiting for the raw to be cooked.

Here comes the Korean Staples, drumlets and wings. With honey coated, they are rather stickily dressed in their golden brown fried wings. This kind of reminds me of 4 Fingers, NeNe Chicken, the kind of Korean Fast Food up in the malls nowadays.

With another common item from the korean cuisine, they have the candied korean sweet potatoes with sesame seeds.

Another thing korean from their cook food section is perhaps none other than the Kimchi and Green onions pancake that was cut into bite sizes for the patron. Grab some and try!

Moving into the meat section, you get beef, chicken and pork in marinated as well as non marinated form. Seafood such as prawns and sotongs were part of the chilled meat too. They are regularly top up by the staff on duty and fresh.

With Steamboat and BBQ, sometimes the preparation can be a little confused here, why not put some into the BBQ hotplate and some into the steamboat soup for boiling? And if you like Bossam as much as I do, try wrapping the BBQ meat with lettuce added with some dakoritang, spicy bean sauce, garlic, onion as well as kimchi.

Marinated and non-marinated meat
While some may want to make their own Budae Jigae (Army Stew), they provide hotdogs, instant noodles, luncheon meat too.

Too bad for the big eaters, there are time limitation of 2 hours, you have to finish your feast within this period.

Other than that, as an overall, staff are prompt in clearing emptied and dirty plates with a smile. Ambience was clean and neat with korean songs playing in the background from the TVs.

Teck Hin Delicacies OK Jul 18, 2016

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/teck-hin-delicacies.html

 

 

 

 
Walking into Ghim Moh Food Centre and there are many stalls with long queues and one of them was none other than Teck Hin Delicacies that provides the heartlanders with comfortable food for breakfast as well as snack time.

Even though with limited 4 items
1) Century Egg & Pork Congee
2) White Bait & Pork Congee
3) Chee Cheong Fun (2 Rolls)
4) Chee Cheong Fun (3 Rolls)

or in fact 3 kinds of food in the menu, these relatively simple food has gained popularity perhaps because of its pocket friendly pricing and comfy meal at about $2.

Century Egg & Pork Congee is very smooth just like what you have in dim sum restaurant. Amount of ingredients was quite alot. Not only that, pork was marinated and tender. Surprisingly the taste of century egg was better than what I had expected as ginger strips was used to reduce the preserved egg taste.

Centry Egg & Pork Congee - $1.80

Steamed Chee Cheong Fun was silky and smooth, coupled with sweet brown sauce and chilli sauce. Recommended!

Chee Cheong Fun - $1.80

It's kind of rare to see economical food around in Hawker Centre nowadays and it is really something simple, down to earth meal that you may want to look for in Ghim Moh!

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/05/wong-kee-wanton-noodle-roasted-delights.html

After walking 6 rounds in Timbre+, I finally found a seat right along the passage ways of Wong Kee Wanton Noodle Queue. The seat was not really ideal as anyone who walks pass by will either rub against or hit my back.

Apparently, this is one of the longest queues we have seen. We joined the long queue with about 10 pax ahead of us and I literally calculated that it took them about 5 minutes to serve a customer.

Spinach Noodle with beef brisket is one of their signatures served in slightly green flat noodles. They were smooth but didn't have much of spinach flavour as usual when compared to the usual standard ones we had outside. Though the beef brisket was succulent and braised to its softness, I could not enjoy much as I felt that it was rather gamey.

Beef Brisket Spinach Noodle with - $5.50
Tomato noodle? What's that? Beats me as I have never seen anything like this before but this is also one of the popular dishes ordered by patrons who walked pass me. The fried and boiled wantons were placed together on the plate as the stall had ran out of soup. Instead of tossing the noodles with the usual sauces, they were replaced by tomato with common wantons mee ingredients like char siew and vegetables. Talking about that, beside having noodles already processed with tomato flavours, the sauce comes with the real tomato. The noodles, as a whole were a little dry and too tangy for my liking, also I find them quite salty.

Tomato Noodle Wanton Mee - $4.50
Since Timbre+ is still in its novelty stage and with news media advertising, the crowd coming in was literally non-stop. Finding of seating can be a frustration, as a whole, with such a scotching weather, the place not only needs more coolers but also requires more ventilation.
