Where can you find a salmon teriyaki set which consists of pearl rice, salad, miso soup and two pieces of salmon for only $5.50?

Japanese Cuisine, a stall in Tanjong Pagar Food Centre, serves restaurant style Japanese set meals at affordable coffee shop prices.

Lightly fried with a crispy outer covering and coated with sweet teriyaki sauce, the impressive salmon is irresistably fragrant and flavorful and is certainly the best I have tasted in a coffee shop. Savory but not too salty, the miso soup goes well with the tasty pearl rice and salad.

For only $5.50, you get a sumptuous salmon teriyaki set meal that will satisfy the craving of every Japanese food fan. Come down to Tanjong Pagar Food Centre and experience it for yourself.

Joo Hing Seafood Hor Fun

A friend recommended me to the seafood hor fun from Joo Hing, a restaurant in Joo Chiat which is famous for its cze char (Chinese cooked dishes).

Reasonably priced for an air-conditioned restaurant, a plate of seafood hor fun which costs $5 is served with a wide variety of ingredients such as prawns, sotong, fish, chicken, lean meat and fish cake. Well-fried with a delightful wok hei flavour, the delicious hor fun is coated with thick savory gravy. I was impressed by the freshness of the fish, sotong and prawn which makes the hor fun even more value for money.

If you prefer dining in an air-conditioned environment, Joo Hing is the one restaurant which I will certainly recommend for its impressive hor fun and cze char.

Joo Chiat Place Fried Kway Teow

Having spent a significant portion of my childhood at Joo Chiat Place, I could remember that my favorite food then was prawn noodle soup, followed by wanton mee and fried kway teow. It must be during that time when I first developed my love for good food.

Recently reopened after it was closed for renovation last year, I finally had the opportunity to revisit Joo Chiat Place Fried Kway Teow.

Marvellously fried to a dry consistency, the delicious kway teow is remarkably fragrant and flavorful with a distinctive charred aroma. A plate of fried kway teow which costs $3, comes in a satisfactory portion with egg, sausage and cockles.

More than just a nostalgic flavour, the quality of Joo Chiat Place fried kway teow has remained outstanding over the years. It is certainly one of the most impressive fried kway teow in Singapore.

Ang Mo Kio Loh Mee

Located in Chong Boon Food Centre at Ang Mo Kio, this stall is well-known for its long queue of customers who crave for lor mee for breakfast. Fortunately the waiting time was remarkably shortened by the efficiency of the stall assistants and I managed to get my lor mee within 15 minutes of queuing.

The prices of Ang Mo Kio Loh Mee range from $2.50 (small) to $3.50 (large). I ordered a $3 bowl of lor mee which comes with braised egg, braised meat, ngor hiang, fish cake and deep fried wanton.

Sufficiently thick but not overly sticky, the flavorful gravy is very pleasing to the taste buds and coats the delicate noodles very well. The use of conventional ingredients eg braised meat, braised meat and ngor hiang, strengthens the authentic flavour of this lor mee and makes having it a really enjoyable experience.

If you are a fan of the traditional type of lor mee like me, Ang Mo Kio Loh Mee is certainly one of the best around. Come down and try it for yourself.

Kampong Chicken Eating House Chicken Rice

I used to have the impression that kampong chicken is tough with little skin and fat. Only after trying the chicken rice at Kampong Chicken Eating House, did I realise that I was wrong.

A plate of kampong chicken rice which costs $3.80, comes with a bowl of chicken rice and a plate of steamed chicken. I really could not help but wonder why the kampong chicken had yellow skin. In spite of that, the fresh chicken is fleshy, tender and tasty. Although softer in consistency than usual, the delicious rice is no less fragrant and filled with the flavorful essence of chicken and pandan leaf. Enjoy the rice with the chilli paste that is thick and spicy and the cabbage soup that is sweet and savory.

Located in Outram, Kampong Chicken Eating House has one of the most impressive chicken rice in Singapore in terms of the quality of the rice, chicken as well as chilli.

China Whampoa Home Made Noodle

I have found the BEST HANDMADE NOODLE (BAN MIAN) in Singapore. Located at Whampoa Drive Market, China Whampoa Home Made Noodle has the most delicious handmade noodle with an unbeatable chilli sauce.

For only $3, you get a bowl of handmade noodle with minced meat, sliced mushrooms and 3 large deshelled prawns. Rich with the concentrated essence of prawns and abalone clams, the mouthwatering soup is delightfully sweet and flavorful and complements the smooth noodles very well. The 3 enormous prawns are fresh and juicy and extremely value for money. The highlight of China Whampoa Home Made Noodle is the special chilli sauce that is extraordinarily thick and savory. The flammable chilli explodes into a kaleidoscope of flavours within the mouth and readily tantalizes the taste buds.

Featured on Makansutra, China Whampoa Home Made Noodle certainly lives up to its reputation in the reviews and recommendations. If you are a food fanatic like me, you must not miss the best handmade noodle in Singapore.
