Hidden away in the Bukit Timah enclave, Choupinette been serving classic French dishes since 2002. When translated from French, "Choupinette" means "Sweetie Pie" in French.

The cafe also doubles up as a bakery where you can see lovely homemade loves displayed in the wooden baskets near the entrance.

It was an impromptu breakfast arrangement on a Saturday morning and we did not make an advance reservation. We approached the cafe as walk-in customers. We were then told that they were fully booked till 11am and they will call us in 20 minutes time if there were empty seats.
Can you spot the loaves?

The menu items are rather limited and have no illustrations.

The doughnut stick was said to be on the house, the reason being that they have kept us waiting.

The Ema's Set is the basic set among all and only served until noon. This gives us a choice of croissant or pain au chocolate or sultana or small brioche or wholemeal mini-baguette with butter and jam. 

All sets on the menu are served with fruit juice and any coffee or hot tea or even hot chocolate. It quite out of the ordinary practise that they offer 2 glasses of drinks in a meal.

The chocolate brioche is a perfect addition to a simple breakfast. The buns are pillowy soft and consist of chocolate.

The set comes with a glass of fruit juice and we have cranberry and lime juice. These are not freshly squeezed juices and most probably some carton juices that can be bought off from the shelves.

The Egg's Benedict's is a definite crowd-pleaser as almost each and every table did have one such similar-looking dish as their order. An a la carte order would have it cost at $19 but we have ordered in as a set and that comes with 2 drinks.

Choupinette has nailed it! The Egg's Benedict was perfectly done and well-executed with hollandaise sauce spread on both poached eggs.

Besides just having eggs on toast with ham and hollandaise sauce, I'm actually quite impressed but how crispy the toast was. The texture was simply as good as munching on some biscuits.

Here comes our 2nd drink, a glass of hot cappuccino and a glass of ice chocolate.

As an overall, service was ordinary and the cafe space is limited and hard to accommodate a large group. It will be advisable to do a reservation prior to going down to avoid disappointment.

The Neighbourwok 街坊 Smile Oct 02, 2020   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Hawker Centre | Noodles

If you hear of the Dim Sum in Bukit Batok near the swimming pool, Lai Kee Poa Tin, you got to try out the Fried Prawn Noodle Stall there too. The Neighbourwok is located in the same coffee shop and selling 2 kinds of food, namely, Fried Prawn Mee and Satay. They have been operating for a few months since 28th June 2020.

Although they are relatively new in the neighbourhood, they are actually one of the best Fried Prawn Noodles in the district. The noodles were flavourful enough with "Wok Hei" taste and subtle sweet egg taste. Even though pork lards were being used in the process, the noodles were neither greasy nor "gelat". 
Fried Prawn Noodle - $4 (Small)

From strands of noodles to the thin strips of pork belly meat, they are generally well accentuated with the prawn broth. On a side note, their homemade Chilli had complimented the dish very well. 
Fried Prawn Noodle - $5 (Big)

The key components in a good plate of Fried Prawn Noodle consist of fresh prawns, pork lards bits, sotong, rich prawn broth, yellow noodles with thick white bee hoon, chilli as well as lime. 

On the other hand, the texture of the noodles is well kept in its shape, being still springy, unlike other places, you may find them already turning soggy when it is served to us. There are 3 types of meat to choose from, Chicken, Pork and Mutton. The cost of a per stick of Mutton Satay is $0.80 each while the rest costs $0.70 each.

Satay

 
Satays are skewed to perfection, accompanied by aromatic chunky peanut sauce. To elaborate, the meat was thoroughly cooked, especially for Mutton, most places that we ate, the mutton satay was quite tough, dried and gamy. The Neighbourwok had actually done a good job by providing such satisfying satay.

PGFN Smile Sep 29, 2020   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Hawker Centre | Noodles

PGFN refers to Pandan Gardens Fishball Noodles. It was founded on 1st March 1982 by a couple, Mr and Mrs Seow. Till now, the business has gone through 3 generations of the customer at their original coffeeshop at Pandan Gardens. If you do not know, PGFN is serving Laksa as well as Fishball Noodles at one of the corners in the coffee shop and they have a few branches throughout the years. 

To name it, their Flag Ship stall is actually located in Keat Hong CC, operating 24 hours since 15th April 2017 with a casual and affordable air-conditioned environment. Other branches are located in Punggol and Bukit Batok West.

Signature Fishball Minced Meat Noodles come with a mixture of fish dumpling, minced meat, slices of fish cake and fishball.

Comparing this Signature Fishball Minced Meat Noodle to the popular chains of fishball noodles that
I had, the taste cannot get any worse. It's still packed with a full of Asian taste, or rather a staple dish that we normally seen here in Singapore.

We preferred to explore something more than just fishball noodles and had the mushroom minced meat noodle. Mushrooms were well braised and definitely the meatballs together with minced meat sums up an average bowl of noodle.

Fish cakes were our side orders and really complemented well with our bowls of noodles.

Personally, I find that the standard of fishball noodle won't lose out to any popular fishball noodles franchises/branches/chains in Singapore.

71 Lor Mee Smile Sep 29, 2020   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre | Noodles

Just a day ago, one of my friends randomly forwarded me a video of this Lor Mee stall, asking me to try it out in Bukit Merah View Hawker Centre. She has also advised me not to go in during the weekends morning as the queue will be rather long but too bad as the week is already nearing weekends, lo and behold, the queue was indeed snaky long. It took about 20 minutes before we get to order our food.

Let us check out the reason for the queue now. The regular bowl of Lor Mee is inexpensive and reasonably priced at $3. The portion may seem not enough for some but I find it just right. I have everything all in and that includes the coriander, minced garlic as well as chilli. 
Lor Mee - $3 (Regular)

Ingredients that made up the bowl of Lor Mee is nothing fanciful but rather ordinary. They are slices of Ngoh Hiong, fish cakes, Lor Bak and crispy bits, adding some crunch to our food. The Lor (gravy) is not starchy and is more on a lighter taste, in which it does not make the meal too "gelat" towards the end.

Dining with a guy that has a greater appetite, the order comes with additional ingredients and noodles priced at $4.50. You can order solely with yellow noodles or a good mixture of noodles with Bee Hoon.

Overall, if you prefer a lighter and simpler taste in Lor Mee, this will be your take! As for me, I have no preference of heavy taste in gravy or even the lighter taste, I find that both have their own special taste.
