Atas Kong Ba Paos? Smile Feb 16, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes


Had a lovely dinner at windowsill pies where I tasted their Atas Kong Ba Paos which I have heard people mentioning about it over and over again! The first time I head of it, I thought that it was just going to be pretty similar to the traditional soft white and black combos. But when it was served up all golden brown, I started salivating. WTH it looks sooo good!

All three of them are of different flavors and they are all gloriously good. The taste is uniquely different for each but I love all of them equally much. The bun is sinfully fried, but the crispy crust is pure heaven.

Looks like windowsill pies aren't just good for pies, but also for Kong ba Paos!

Totally in my top ten favourite food places!

P.S I had to order 2 more slices of pies to end of my meal on a sweet note smile

Healthy simple and tasty, this is my favourite don to order at Ichiban Sushi for lunch.
Salmon Don

Salmon Don

 
The salmon is drizzled with sesame oil to make to more flavoursome and little chopped chilli padis are scattered on the top to give it a little spicy kick! Slather on a little wasabi and you are all ready to feast!

If you are a dining alone a don will be a good option. However if you have a dining partner with you, there is one combination value meal set that offers this salmon don together with a unagi don at a very worthwhile price!

Do check it out!

The outlet at ARC is really popular at lunch, so do pop over before 12pm if not you have to be prepared for a long wait as the lunch crowd picks up there! Service staff seems to be a little short so it can be a little slow, do dine in here only if you have a full 1 hr lunch break

If you are looking for a cheap and good dessert place in Tiong Bahru after dinner, Tian Tian Yuan is a nice pitstop that you will definitely be able to find something that you like.
They have more than 30 varieties of dessert that is available so you can go crazy choosing your favorite.

I have been to this stall several times and I really love their cheng teng which is packed with ingredients. Their prices are definitely reasonable and they don't scrimp on their ingredients.

They can be overzealous with their sugar syrup, so if you are looking for a slight healthier alternative, you can tell the auntie to put less sugar and she will gladly comply smile

Great service, great taste and great variety. What's not to like?
(I only wonder if 20 years down the road, can we still find hawkers like them, since it is such a dying trade)

If you are looking for a good place to enjoy supoer, Swee Choon is one of the best spots to go to. Dont be surprise to see long queues waiting for seats at 1am in the morning, cause they are really popular for their selection of dim sum.
My recent craving brought me in to feast on my all time favourite:
Dan Dan Mian

Dan Dan Mian

 
I like how the noodles here are always springy and never too starchy as if it were overcooked. Big portions which efinitely able to fill you up, I had to share this with Mr Heng, if not I would be too stuffed!
Spicy Beanpaste Chicken

Spicy Beanpaste Chicken

 
The other item which I like to order have to be the Spicy Bean Paste Chicken ( If I never remember the name wrongly) it is served cold, but it spicy savoury chilli oil sauce which it comes in is super shiok for those to love spicy food. I sometime dump the sauce into my dan dan mian to make it more spicy.
Century Egg Tofu

Century Egg Tofu

 
I also like the century egg tofu which is served with a little sweet sauce and chunks of century egg. I wish there could be a little more century egg though. Definitely not enough to satisfy my cravings.
There are loads of really good selections to go for in swee choon and you can just check out the other tables around you to see what they are ordering!
Have fun indulging in swee choon!

Looking for a good plate got hor fun? Look no further than Changi Village Hawker Centre's Wing Kee Chicken Chop Hor Fun. Now this stall have a rival right opposite it called "Amigo" and I used to be a fan of the stall till the standards started dropping a little.
The 2 best sellers which you will often hear people ordering is the Ipoh hor fun and Chicken Chop Hor Fun.
Chicken Chop Hor Fun

Chicken Chop Hor Fun

 
My choice is the chicken chop hor fun and I am sure if you are a guy, you can easily slurp up 2 plates of it. The hor fun is so smooth and soft you hardly feel the need to bite at all. The crispy chicken which is placed atop the hor fun is such a contrast in the texture, when you hear the crunch as you bite down.

If you are a chilli fan, go for it! It is a little sweet despite its spiciness.
Have fun enjoying your plate of horfun as much as I did with mine!
