Koo Kee is famous for their Yong Tow Foo Mee and has many outlets in food courts and hawker centres all over Singapore. Koo Kee Restaurant at Jalan Sultan is not just another Yong Tow Foo Mee outlet.

Syed Alwi Road has a rich heritage and is said to be an architectural feast. Students of architecture can admire the decorative wall tiles, window openings, arches, columns and pilasters of shophouses built from the late 1800s to the 1960s in a range of styles. We cannot tell the difference between a column and a pilaster but we are glad that in one of the colourful shophouses along Syed Alwi Road we can eat sumptuously and cheaply. 传统大连面家 Da Lian Traditional Noodles at Syed Alwi Road serves a good bowl of Teochew minced pork noodles or bak chor mee and we like their satay bee hoon too; and it is open all day and all night.
Lavender is a subzone of Kallang with historic street names such as King George’s Avenue, Horne Road and Jellicoe Road. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) Building, Jalan Besar Stadium and the headquarters of People’s Association are located in the area served by the 劳明达 Lavender MRT Station (EW11). Besides trendy cafes (see TOP Cafes in Lavender), Lavender also offers many cheap and good food options. 1 Michelin Star Hill Street Tai Wah Pork Noodles in Crawford Lane is well known but there are many other hawker stalls with good food in Lavender. The Sliced Fish Bee Hoon, Mee Hoon Kueh and Teochew Kway Teow Mee stalls in Ta Sun Eating House are examples of places for cheap and good noodle dishes.
In case you have no time to read this entire post, I can easily convey all I need to say into one sentence. If you like roast pork, then a visit to One Bowl Restaurant in The Sultan Hotel, Singapore should be on your to do list. Although the roast pork is referred to as char siew in the menu, it does not look like the regular char siu that we are used to. Instead of thin slices of mostly lean meat with red colouring at the edges, the char siew at One Bowl Restaurant were partially fatty pieces, cut into thick slabs and without any colouring. More oily than the usual kind but perhaps that is what gives it its rich taste.
CT Hub in the Kallang-Lavender industrial area may become a new food hub as Deliveroo has just established a new central kitchen there. Deliveroo Editions 2 at CT Hub 2 hosts several restaurants, and customers can order online and pick up their food from these restaurants at CT Hub. There is also a 20-seat dining space for customers to dine in. Besides Deliveroo Editions 2, other CT Hub food and beverage options are also rather interesting.
