Leng Leng Ice Cream

Apr
23

At a quiet corner in Eunos, you will find a nice corner to chill and enjoy ice-cream. Visited Leng Leng Ice Cream on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Despite the cold weather, the warm hospitality definitely helped. I ordered the Sugee Waffle with Thai Ice Tea ice cream. The Sugee Waffle batter are homemade and Auntie Leng even came to us and asked whether we like it. Told her the waffle was alittle too thick and hard and she said she will fine tune it.

The ice cream was good as it wasn’t too sweet, suitable for people like me who doesn’t like sweet stuff.

The waffles also come with some childhood favourite like chocolate roll etc. Leng Leng Ice Cream is located at 116 Changi Road #01-11, Singapore 419718. Do check them out.

Seng Huat Coffee House

Jan

I don’t usually venture out of my usual neighbourhood to explore coffeeshops but when I chanced upon a photo uploaded on my friend’s Instagram, I decided to give it a try.

If you are living in the Northeast and has always think that there isn’t anything interest, you may want to think again. Seng Huat Coffee House, located at Hougang Central, not only serve the common chicken rice and economic bee hoon, but also has a drink stall that sells Pork Buns.

Seng Huat

 

These are not ordinary pork buns. These pork buns are served with mayo and cheese (remember to tell the staff you want chilli sauce when ordering) and the buns comes in the form of a pig. The pork bun are sold at $3.50 each and $4.80 if you order a breakfast set (which will include a drink and 2 eggs). The “eyes” are raisin so perhaps or maybe, you can say that its a raisin bun?

Pork Bun for Breakfast

 

We feel that its worth traveling to give it a try but be prepared to wait for awhile longer as there is usually a queue and limited seats around.

Seng Huat Coffee House is located at Blk 811 Housing Central, #01-2016.

Tai Cheong Bakery

Dec

I was checking my Instagram and found out that Tai Cheong actually opened an outlet in Singapore (other than the store at Takashimaya).

At this outlet at Holland Village, they also serve macaroni, toast, sandwich and rice. However, other than the tarts and beverages, the rest of the food are only served during lunch and dinner time. We went during tea time and was disappointed when they didn’t serve the main course.

We then ordered egg tarts. durian and cheese tart and coconut tart. The egg tarts were served hot while I personally feel that the coconut tart was a little too sweet.

Egg Tarts

 

We wanted to buy take away but were told that dine-in customers would have to join the other customers who were in another queue for take-away. There is another separate queue for dine-in customers. Tai Cheong Bakery is located at 31 Lorong Liput, Holland Village.

The Bakery Chef

Dec

I’m always in search for good rainbow cakes because after all, it is my favourite. I’ve tried one at Macpherson and another at Haji Lane. The search continues and this time I traveled to Jln Bukit Merah to give it a try.

The Bakery Chef has been in existence for quite awhile and it seems their specialty is their rainbow cakes. There was the chocolate and the vanilla one and its pretty obvious that my preference was the vanilla one as it was less sweet. There are limited seats within the cafe itself but if you don’t mind, outdoor seating is available too.

Personally, I feel its worth trying. The Bakery Chef is located at Blk 161 Jln Bukit Merah #01-3711.

Katong Chicken Curry Puff

Dec
18

Forget about Old Chang Kee and whenever I’m in Marine Parade and that craving for curry puff sets in, I’ll always buy from Katong Chicken Curry Puff.

I like the crust as it doesn’t feel oily. The curry puffs are freshly made at the stall itself. They are not stingy on the servings, there are eggs, chicken and potatoes. It is also not very spicy (at least for me).

If you are interested to try, the stall is located at Blk 84 Marine Parade Central.

Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee

Oct
23

I know it may be too heavy to have noodles to have breakfast but when its good, you just simply have to eat it.

Located at a quiet corner of Amoy Street Food Centre, Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee served tasty and chewy Teochew fishball noodles.

Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee

 

As its name suggests, other than fishballs, the noodles also comes with char view and minced pork. If you like vinegar, you can add it in yourself. Looking at the picture below, you will know that the stallholder is not stingy with the serving. The noodles are chewy and tasty.

The next time when you visit Amoy Street Food Centre, you may want to try Ah Tee Ko Ko Mee. It is located at 7 Maxwell Road, #02-131.

What to eat in Hong Kong?

Aug
11

I’ve visited Hong Kong on a few occasions and have blogged about a number of food places. Here’s a list of places which I’ve compiled.  Some  of them date back to 2011 but they are still around as of my last visit.

Dim Sum

Breakfast at Lin Heung – Our first visit in 2011 was quite memorable and decided to go again when I brought my parents along in 2014. The standard of the food seemed to have dropped. Lin Heung Tea House is located at 160-164 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong and their contact number is 852-2544-4556. If you are traveling by train, alight at Sheung Wan MTR Station Exit A2.

The Push Cart Aunty

Cafes

Mido Café – First got to know about this place in 2011 and went back again in 2015. I like the ambience of the place and favourite has always been the baked rice. There have been mixed reviews but I feel its worth visiting. Mido Cafe is located at 63, Yau Ma Tee, Temple Street.

Baked Rice

Yee Shun Milk Company – My cousin recommended Yee Shun Milk Company to me and told me that its a must to try their steam milk. If you have tried Australia Dairy Co., you may find that it doesn’t taste as good.  But I think its always good to have more options and should give it a try. They have a few outlets and are located at;
Mong Kok – 246-248 Sai Yeung Choi St S
Jordan – 63 Pilkem St
Causeway Bay – 506 Lockhart Rd

Steam Milk

Australia Dairy Co. – During my visit in 2015, I remembered going on 3 consecutive nights  to eat the Almond Steam Egg Custard and I didn’t get tired of it. It was tasty but not too sweet and was really different from the ones served at Yee Shun Milk Company. It is located at 47 Parkes St, Hong Kong.

Almond Steam Egg Custard

Hokkaido Dairy Farm – If you are looking for breakfast which cost below HK$50, then you should consider Hokkaido Dairy Farm. It is locate at Shop A-B, G/F, 211 Johnston Road, Wan Chai.

Peanut Butter Toast

Hello Kitty Secret Garden Café – Looking for a themed café in Hong Kong? You will probably want to visit it because its a Hello Kitty Café, but if you are not a fan, then perhaps you want to give it a miss. The food is acceptable but nothing much to shout about. The café is located at 19 Ormsby St, Tai Hang, Hong Kong and is about 10 mins walk away from Prince Edward MTR on Hong Kong Island.

Hello Kitty Secret Garden Cafe

Lan Fong Yuen – They are only opened at 10am but the wait is definitely worth it as they serve one of the best milk tea and pork chop bun.

Noodles

Mak’s Noodle – While Mak’s Noodle is now in Singapore, just like Tim Ho Wan but the food will definitely taste better from where it all begin. There is no char siew but just wantons! The noodles are springy and you will want a second serving after finishing your first bowl. Mak’s Noodle is located at 77 Wellington Road.

Kim Keat Hokkien Mee

Aug
10

We always have a problem on Saturdays… What do we eat for dinner? So usually, I will look at my Facebook, Instagram or even google to get some ideas for dinner. We have tried quite a number of Hokkien Mee and this was something quite different for us – it was served in claypot.

Surprisingly on the day of our visit, there wasn’t a long queue but general observation is that most of the people visiting the coffeeshop were ordering the Hokkien Mee. We waited for about 15 minutes before the food was served. There were squids, prawns, clams and its generally watery (some may not like it). There were 7 of us and all of us had our fair share of the prawns, clams and squids.

The children enjoyed so much that we ordered another claypot Hokkien mee. The two claypots were ordered at different timings and all of us felt that both tasted quite differently. The first one was tasty (or maybe we were hungry) and the second one was less than satisfying.

Nevertheless, our conclusion that this is a place still worth visiting. If you are interested, it is located at Blk 94 Toa Payoh Lorong 4 #01-264.

Breakfast at Tong Ah Restaurant

Mar

It was the one week school holidays and we did not need to leave home earlier for work. The wife asked to go for breakfast so I was trying to figure out where else other than Amoy Food Centre that we can go to. I decided to drive along Keong Saik and found this eating place called, Tong ah Restaurant.

I think Tong Ah Restaurant sells zhi char from afternoon onwards but in the morning, they are selling half boiled eggs, toasts and coffee/tea.

We ordered Teh-O, toast bread, French toast and half boiled eggs. The Teh-O was good, it isn’t bitter at all – just right and to our liking. The kaya was not very sweet. Wife actually enjoyed the French Toast. Overall, we enjoyed our breakfast but this meal costs us $7.

If you are early and around the Chinatown area, you may want to consider trying it. Tong Ah Restaurant is located at 35 Keong Saik Road.

Tian Kee & Co.

If you are driving along Dakota Crescent, you may have to be a little more attentive and look out for Tian Kee & Co. because it blended so well with its surrounding that its possible to miss it.

I brought my cousin there on a Sunday afternoon and luckily it was not that crowded. I ordered Tandoori Chicken Wrap and Matcha Latte. The Tandoori Chicken Wrap came with mashed potato. The tandoori chicken was a little spicy. It was well marinated and tasted just right with the mayonnaise sauce. There were carrot, cucumber and cabbage to go along with it too. The matcha latte was not too sweet which was something I like.

Tian Kee & Co. is located at Blk 12 Dakota Crescent #01-48 and is accessible via bus or MRT (Mountbatten Station).
