We used the online Keng Eng Kee delivery website to order some tze char comfort food. This popular tze char restaurant at Alexandra Village is famous for their seafood items and signature coffee pork ribs.
Among the many food choices at Mei Ling Street Food Centre are two noodle stalls – Newton Tan Song Heng Hokkien Fried Prawn Noodles 陈松兴 and Hai Tang Lor Mee (海棠卤面). We selected these two as they provided contrast – the Mei Ling Street Hokkien Mee in a light broth and lor mee noodles in a dark thick gravy. Mei Ling Street Market and Food Centre is a relatively remote spot. It is not close to an MRT station or a nearby busy commercial area. So we like to go there to avoid crowds. On a weekday lunchtime, these two stalls attract a manageably short queue.
Bib Gourmand Hor Fun stall Shi Hui Yuan Hor Fun Speciality is probably the most famous stall in the Mei Ling Market and Food Centre in Queenstown. There are many other stalls that are also highly regarded. Today’s story is about our late breakfast of the Michelin award-winning hor fun as well as some crunchy fish balls and noodles from Xin Lu Teochew Fishball Noodles, which used to be at the Margaret Drive Hawker Centre.
The Cheese Ark is the kind of place that we would expect to see in Dempsey, Cluny Court or Orchard Paragon. But this specialist cheese shop has chosen to open in an unlikely location in Singapore. It is in a ground floor shop of a HDB block along Stirling Road in Queenstown. It had just relocated there from its previous location in PasarBella at The Grandstand (the former Singapore Turf Club premises in Bukit Timah). Having read the interesting story about the Cheese Ark and its proprietor, Ms Syu in Channel News Asia (Scared of Stinky Cheese?) . We decided that we had to make a trip to Queenstown.
