The sun was out in all of its oppressive heated glory. And just like everyone else, we needed to seek respite from its angry rays before we melted into nothingness. Oh the drama.

And so welcoming was the blast of cool wind. We decided to bask in all of its air conditioned loving arms whilst waiting for a seat in the bustling crowd of cafe hoppers on a Sunday. Thankfully, getting a seat at their communal tables didn't take too long.

The creme brulee latte came with an overpowering scent but for what it served in smell, it failed to make up in taste.
let them know to separate the ice cream?

These chicken wings looked like heaven. But again, fell short of their pedestal.
Straight from the fridge to the oven grills left them with an unmistakable un-thawed taste.

delicious looking

The waffles?
On their own, they were decent.
But those two scoops of vanilla ice cream was less than stellar.
They tasted of low quality and ruined the entire waffle order.
The tiramisu was quite the saving grace.
Though a little costly for its size.
It's a shame though because I loved the decor,
the aircon was quite the blast smile The happy colors in the washroom and the cute drawings of The Tiramisu Hero of course! I'm sure they'll get better as the cafe continues. Jiayou!

A slice of history.

 
I was impressed by the rich heritage of this shop.
An immediate text message to my aunt staying down the road at Kerrisdale leaves me feeling like a country bumpkin.
They dine here every weekend it seems!
Well, that's going to change in a minute.

 
Jumbo Spring Rolls ($3 per roll)

This was a great starter to dinner.
To camera action.
To conversation.
And simple satisfaction.
Crisp rolls deep fried to a golden brown packed densely with a myriad of flavours.
Simple. But so much flavour.
Charsiew, egg, vegan flour crispy bits and beansprouts to keep things moist and bursting with juices.
Eating this with sweet sauce was a preview of things to come.

 
Seafood hor fun- Large ($14)

I'm a carb monster and this was just speaking to me from the time it was set down on the table.
The generous servings of assorted seafood.
I hoped the gravy would have that umami.
And I wasn't disappointed.
The dish would've scored a lot higher in my opinions if the horfun was not fried with soy sauce for color and instead, simply tossed with minimal oil over high heat for that characteristic wok hei flavour.

 
Prawn paste chicken- Large ($22)

This was a deep orange and best eaten piping hot.
Unfortunately, the flavour of prawn paste was a lot less muted than its pungent fragrance.
Having said that, this was still a plate of juicy chicken pieces with the satisfying crackle of deep fried skin.

 
Homemade beancurd in mushroom sauce ($22)

Silky smooth pieces of beancurd cut into squares and deep fried.
Topped with sliced chinese flower mushrooms and yellow chives, drizzled generously with sauce.
This was my favourite comfort food tonight. smile

Black pepper beef ($22)

Tender slices of beef well marinated with a strong black pepper sauce stir fried with a generous serving of onions.
Fans of the red meat should make an order for this dish.

 
Fried Prawn with Oats-Large ($37)

The priciest item on the table that night but these juicy and succulent large prawns were well worth the price tag.
Girls would be pleased to see that the large prawns have been served peeled.
Eating this without getting oats all over your mouth is still an art.
And there were more than enough prawns for practice.
The use of oats in place of cereal was a novel step.
And although rougher in taste than the latter, this alternative was less sweet and definitely very filling.

 
Fried vegetables with minced meat ($16)

A nondescript dish of chopped veggies topped with minced meat had a je ne sais quoi that kept me wondering.
The boss kindly lets us in on the magic.
Powdered dried flat fish and oyster sauce made for a delish gravy that these veggies were stir fried in.

 
Sweet & Sour Pork- Large ($22)

These battered pieces of pork were minimally covered in batter so you get a full bite of pork in every cube.
I found the meat a little tough though but I actually would rather lean than fatty pork for this dish.
The sauce was an addiction.
It was also a plus point that real pineapple pieces were used instead of the canned ones.

Nice family style environment, with enthusiastic waitstaff who serve with a smile.
I'll definitely be back with family soon for some Cantonese styled stir fry in the Bugis area.

Always a good time of meeting and eating with the OpenRicers.
Thanks for the food tasting invite OpenRice smile

For 5 hungry boys Smile Nov 01, 2013

Five hungry boys and where would be near to smu for some dinner. Fatty's!

 
This was a large portion of sambal fried rice and this was enough for two bowl sized servings for 5. The ingredients were substantial with diced charsiew and the fragrance of sambal that wasn't overwhelmingly spicy.

the rice grains were separated and not with so much oil that it stops one from going for seconds.

goes very well with green chilli. smile

and their prawn paste chicken in the background. the chicken was soaked in oil. which i supposed added on to the fact that it was so addictively delicious. crisp and fragrant. a small portion goes for $8.

there are many good food stalls in tiong bahru. And this although often overlooked, is one of them.

 
the addition of mushrooms in minced meat noodles isn't always present and the more i do appreciate when they add it into my noodles. smile

the noodles were done dry with a sauce that had enough spice for kick and keeps you going at the noodles.there was pork lard. just a little for fragrance.

the soup that came with this wasn't the usual boiled water with some msg. it actually had flavour. i even asked for a second serving.

get a portion of the roasted char siew from the stall on the opposite side of the market. that's a lot of yum for lunch!

the ingredients are simple. but not every stall gets this right.

 
this was an indulgence in fried items. and they all tasted so good.

i loved the ngoh hiang especially. full on ingredients and flavours.
this went perfectly with the sauce that accompanied. eat it freshly fried for maximum satisfaction!

oh, don't forget the squid. for the chewy juicy squid flavour. this didn't need any sauce to make a difference. smile
