Yeap Seng Egg Tart

When I was having my favorite ban mian at Whampoa Market this morning, I stumbled upon this stall named Yeap Seng Handmade Pau Tim which has a variety of pastries and dim sum at very affordable prices.

Although priced at only $0.70, I feel that Yeap Seng's egg tart tastes better than the famous $1.30 egg tart from Tong Heng in Chinatown. Filled with thick butter fragrance, the flavorful crust goes very well with the mouthwatering egg custard that is just of the right sweetness.

Besides egg tart, Yeap Seng also has carrot cake, char siew bao, fried ngor hiang, curry puff etc. If you are a pastry lover, come down to Whampoa and try it for yourself.

Gourmet Claypot Herbal Chicken

With a wide variety of claypot dishes ranging from herbal chicken to claypot rice, bak kut teh, curry chicken and claypot noodle, Gourmet Claypot at Compass Point Food Court has one of the best claypot herbal chicken that I have ever tried.

Reasonably priced at $5 with additional $0.50 for a bowl of plain rice, the delicious herbal soup comes with several pieces of fresh and tender chicken. Served piping hot in a claypot, the mouthwatering soup is rich with the authentic flavours of Chinese herbs such as angelica root, codonopsis root and wolfberries etc. Another plus point is the special chilli sauce which goes very well with the tasty chicken.

If you have the craving for traditional homemade herbal chicken soup, you must come down to Sengkang and try Gourmet Claypot herbal chicken today.

Kim Seng Live Prawn Noodle

Formerly known as Feng Yun Live Prawn Noodle when it was located at Kim Seng Plaza, it has shifted to Marina Square Food Court and is now known as Kim Seng Live Prawn Noodle.

Served at a promotional price of $3.90, the prawn noodle comes with two live tiger prawns, shredded braised meat and fish cake. You can choose to have either the traditional prawn soup or the nutritious herbal soup. Having tried both, I prefer the nutritious herbal soup which is exceptionally savory and fragrant. The live tiger prawns are indeed fresh and sweet.

Whether you are a fan of prawn noodle or herbal soup, come down to Marina Square and try this special herbal prawn noodle from Kim Seng today.

Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah

Search for "Balestier" and "tau sar piah" on Google and the name Loong Fatt comes out in most hits, ahead of all its other competitors along Balestier Road.

Closed on Sundays, I finally had the chance to savour the famous Loong Fatt tau sar piah when I went there on a Friday morning. Although slightly more expensively priced at 70 cents instead of 50 or 60 cents from its other competitors, the tau sar piah from Loong Fatt is considerably larger in size. Served fresh from the oven, the special crust is soft and warm with a distinctive butter fragrance. The thick red bean filling is irresistably delicious with the right balance of sweet and salty flavours.

Having my Loong Fatt tau sar piah with a cup of hot green tea was a wonderful experience. Come down to Balestier and try it for yourself.
