Xin Sheng Huo Seafood Hor Fun

Better known as the hor fun stall in the middle of Alexandra Village Food Centre, I never noticed Xin Sheng Huo until I read about it on the Makansutra forum.

A plate of seafood hor fun which costs only $3 comes with a generous variety of ingredients eg prawns, sotong, fish and mussels. The delicious hor fun is marvellously fried with a distinctive wok hei flavour. The mouthwatering gravy is remarkably savory and complements the tasty hor fun very well. What is most special is its fresh sotong and juicy mussels makes Xin Sheng Huo seafood truly outstanding.

To all hor fun lovers in Singapore, this is certainly one of the best seafood hor fun I have ever tasted. Even the seafood hor fun from famous restaurants and cze char stalls somehow pale in comparison with Xin Sheng Huo. Come down and try it for yourself today.

Golden Shoe Nasi Lemak

Even before I knew where Golden Shoe Car Park was, I already read about this nasi lemak that was described as cheap and delicious on our local food blogs.

A plate of Golden Shoe Nasi Lemak which comes with a fried chicken drumstick, fried egg and fried cabbage, costs only $2.50. The pandan flavoured rice appears really appetizing but lacking in coconut fragrance. The fried chicken drumstick is impressive, crispy and fingerlicking good.

Golden Shoe Nasi Lemak is certainly a hot favorite for the lunch time crowd in CBD with its inexpensive prices and delicious side dishes.

Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee

Located at Whampoa Drive Food Centre, Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee vaguely reminds me of Hainan Fried Hokkien Mee at Golden Mile Food Centre and Nam Sing Fried Hokkien Mee at Old Airport Road Food Centre.

A plate of Singapore fried hokkien mee which costs $3 comes in a reasonable portion fried with prawns, sotong and egg. Fragrantly fried to a semi-dry consistency, the delicious noodles absorb the savory gravy very well. The remarkable feature about this fried hokkien mee is its authentic chilli paste which is spicy, sweet and subtly bitter.

Besides fried hokkien mee, Whampoa Food Centre also has other delicious foodstuff eg fried oyster and steamboat. Don't miss them.

Thiam Seng Seafood Hor Fun

If not for bobafett81's recommendation on the Makansutra forum, I have missed this stall at Old Airport Road Food Centre. After all, there are so many delicious food stalls there, it would take me ages to try them all.

Generously served with a wide variety of fresh ingredients eg prawns, sotong, fish, pork, pig's liver and vegetables, a plate of Thiam Seng seafood hor fun costs only $3.50. Expertly fried to a rich wok hei flavour, the special hor fun is tasty and fragrant yet not overly oily. The gravy is thick and savory and complements the hor fun very well.

Despite facing fierce competition from the neighboring cze char stalls, Thiam Seng seafood hor fun certainly impresses with its great spread of ingredients.

Yummy Sarawak Kolo Mee

Even though I am a fan of wanton mee, this is the first time I tasted Sarawak kolo mee. I have initially wanted to have the curry pork rib noodles at Tampines Blk 137 Market but it was sold out, so I settled for Yummy Sarawak kolo mee instead.

A bowl of kolo mee which costs $3 comes with an impressive array of ingredients eg one fried wanton, two steamed wanton, one prawn dumpling, one piece of pork rib and several slices of char siew. The springy noodles with a distinctive egg flavour somewhat reminds me of instant noodles. Compared with the sweet and spicy sauce of traditional Cantonese wanton mee, the authentic sauce of the Sarawak kolo mee is more savory and salty. I was very impressed with the large prawn dumpling which is extremely flavorful and the tasty pork rib which is fingerlicking good.

Even though it was a wonderful experience eating Yummy Sarawak kolo mee, I still prefer the Cantonese wanton mee because I feel that the sauce blends better with the noodles. But judging by the queue in front of the stall, I guess my opinion is biased and many people like it better than I do. Come down and try it for yourself today.
