檳城家鄉味 Traditional Penang Food at Kitchener Complex

There is an interesting small eatery in Kitchener Complex. It has a Chinese name –  檳城家鄉味. The Menu says “Traditional Penang Food” – we are not sure if that is a description of the food or the name of the eatery. Even if you cannot read Chinese, it should not be difficult to locate the place. Just look for the iconic Penang street art on the wall of a little cafe and various signs and posters advertising Penang delicacies.  Continue reading →

Sungei Road Laksa – $3 Laksa at Jalan Berseh

Sungei Road Laksa

The Sungei Road flea market might be gone but fortunately the $3 Sungei Road Laksa stall is still around and doing a thriving business. With only one thing on the menu, this laksa stall in an old style coffeeshop is as traditional as it gets. It still uses charcoal fire. Its laksa is old fashioned goodness. Sungei Road Laksa is famous and popular without having to call itself famous. The usual long queue at the stall is probably its best endorsement.

Blanco Court Fried Fish Noodles – new location at 325 Beach Road

Blanco Court Fried Fish Noodles at Beach Road

Blanco Court Fried Fish Noodles

Blanco Court is one of the old food haunts in Singapore that has become extinct. Pidemco-Raffles Properties purchased Blanco Court, situated at the junction of Ophir Road and North Bridge Road, in 1997 to retrofit it into a hospital and medical centre. The Raffles Hospital now stands in the spot where the popular Blanco Court food centre used to be. The food centre had famous stalls selling Kway Chap, Fish Soup, Prawn Mee and other local delicacies. Today there are are number of hawker stalls with “Blanco Court” as part of their names. A Blanco Court Fried Fish Noodles has been operating in Beach Road for some years. It has just set up shop at a new location – 325 Beach Road. We cannot be certain that it is the original sliced fish soup stall from the old Blanco Court but it does serve delicious sliced fish noodles.

Fei Fei Wanton Mee Joo Chiat

Fei Fei Wanton Mee in Joo Chiat

There have been much debate about Fei Fei Wanton Mee. The wanton noodles stall in Joo Chiat Place was probably one of the most popular in the East but it is getting mixed reviews nowadays. There used to be two Fei Fei stalls in Joo Chiat run by two brothers. There is only one left now. It goes by the name FeiFei Wan Tan Mee King. We re-visited the stall recently. We thought that while it might not be the king of wanton noodles, FeiFei Wan Tan Mee King still served pretty good wanton noodles.

Provisions Dempsey Road – Skewers, Claypot with free coffee & snacks

New restaurant, Provisions Dempsey describes itself as follows: “Singapore’s first Skewers & Claypot Cocktail Bar. We serve comforting foods of South East Asia in provincial formats; in an earthen wear vessel and on a stick.” It is located in Block 7 which is right at the back of the Dempsey restaurant area. This part of Dempsey is nice and quiet as the road in front leads to a dead-end. The lush foliage made us feel like we were visiting a restaurant in Bali.
