As with most Singaporeans’ conversations around the dining table go, many a time they revolve around food. During one of those dinners as part of the Lunar New Year visitations, my uncle recommended a stall to me somewhere in Serangoon when I briefly mentioned that Roasted Duck is one of my favourite hawker foods.
And so, I specifically made a trip down. I was definitely not disappointed. The Roasted Duck was moist and succulent whilst the roasted pork had minimum fat in between the layers with a crispy crackling on top.
“New World Mutton Soup” came highly recommended for having one of the best hawker-style mutton soups in Singapore so a visit was quickly arranged.
To be frank, if you’re a frequent reader of this blog, this post might come as a surprise to you. Well, it surprised even me! But I remember that I would post more of our local hawker cuisine on my blog. So, this post adds on to the ever-growing list: No. 18 Zion Road Char Kway Teow and Covent Garden Kway Chap.
Do you still remember the Beef Noodles that came with a thick gravy from long ago at Scotts Shopping Centre? I DO, albeit vaguely! Although I have since forgotten what the taste of the noodles was but I vaguely remember the current dish looking somewhat familiar.
Fond memories aside, looking at this bowl of beef noodles from a new perspective, I thought that it was a dish that’s hard not to like. With the flavourful gravy paired with thin slices of beef, that’s like THE perfect combination.
Oh, the beef balls were definitely irresistible too! And all that for less than S$10 (you can even have a drink with it and not exceed that amount!). Simple comforts for the soul, I’d say.
When the craving for laksa strikes, where do you go? I head to 328 Katong Laksa along East Coast Road. And yes, such cravings do occur for both my friend and I. (We’ve been stuck in Perth for the last 2 months, you see)
There will always be debates of (1) Which stall is the original Katong Laksa and (2) Which stall’s version is the best. Just between my friend and myself, we were two minds about the laksa here. I was of the opinion that this stall serves up one of the better versions, while she claims that the stall opposite is much better. But the one positive factor that would point me towards 328 is, unlike its competitor, it has an air -conditioned dining area (Perfect for Singapore’s eternal summer).
