This place alone is going to take one a long long time to explore.

Li Fang Porridge 丽芳粥品

Decided to order from this porridge stall. There is always a queue at this stall during lunch time, thats why I decided to check this stall out.

What I ordered

Pork Congee $2.80 with egg $0.50

Looks quite appetizing. The grains of rice are quite quite well cooked till its soft and thick mixture. Its not those kind of porridge which is watery or with lots of water. Another good point will be the complimentary fried dough fritter (youtiao or 油条) added into the porridge. Moreover, each order was cooked individually.

However, I found the porridge too salty for my liking and also there were just 3 pieces of pork slices in my porridge.

Angel Horse Teochew Fish Soup

There’s always a long queue (8-10people) at this particular stall. Being a Singaporean, I decided to in the queue and see eat for myself whats so good about this stall.

Start of the queue

Side view of the queue

Not as bad as I thought, waited in the queue for about 20-25 minutes only to order.

Look at the picture above do you notice chilli padi? I guess its fresher this way??

Fish Soup, $5.00 with Rice $0.50

Fish Soup $5.00

The fish soup comes in $3.00, $4.00 or $5.00. What is inside? Seaweed, bitter gourd, slices of fish, tomato and tofu. The soup is clear too. Ok, I been wanting to write this since the start of this post. This has got to be the best fish soup in singapore. I have never had such a delicius bowl of fish soup before.

The soup is not salty and you can taste the sweetness of the soup. I am not sure how they make the fish stock, but from the taste, lots of effort and hard work has been put into this fish stock. No milk added to artificially enhance the taste of the soup.

The ingredients are real fresh. The fish is most important. Its not fried. When eating fried fish, its hard to determine freshness of a fish.  Look at the picture below.

slice of fish

Looks normal right? Well, when you taste it, you will know its very very fresh. Its soft, smooth and you can taste the sweetness of the fish meat. Absolutely freshlicious! Does anyone know what the fish used call? Is this Batang fish? And also, it does not help that I like bitter gourds! For once, I do not need to request to add bitter gourds as this stall put that in by default. Together with the rest of the ingredients, I polished the whole bowl.

Salted Bean Sauce with Chilli Padi

Oh yes, the salted bean sauce with chilli padi complemented each other quite well too. A nice combination!

Do try this when you are in the area, its worth the wait and money. I will certainty be back for more.

Tow Seng Wanton Mee

Located at Albert Centre Market & Food Centre . This food centre has so many stalls, lots of people queuing up too. Normally when you are unfamiliar with a place, the rule of thumb is to go to the stalls where there is a queue. That was what I did. Not that this was the only stall with queue, several other stalls had queue too, but some looks very long and some I was not that interested to try yet.

Wanton Mee dry, $3.00

The wanton mee cost either $2.50 or $3.00. I ordered the $3.00 one dry with no chilli. The mee serving was alot. And the good thing was that the mee was springy (QQ) and not stuck together as a lump. It was easy to mix the bowl of mee and ingredients with  the sauce below. The sauce was well mixed and delicious. You can easily eat the noodles as each strand was not too long and seems ‘well oiled’ (if u know what i mean lol). I was full most probably from the huge portion of mee.

Char Siew and vege were average, just that some pieces of char siew seems too dry. Green chilli added inside enhanced the taste of the wanton mee.

Wanton

Wanton was average too. Not lousy, not fantastic either. I would say overall, this was a decent wanton mee meal. And I will not mind queuing up for it unless I find a better one in the area (too many stalls to try).
