Tasty Lor Mee at Kim Seng Eating House, Block 168, Lor 1, Toa Payoh, Singapore 310168

After crossing the second link, we took the PIE (Pan Island Expressway) and finally arrived at Kim Seng Eating House, Blk 168, Toa Payoh Lor 1. The coffee shop (kopitiam) is located in the vicinity of HDB flats. This place is rather small but all the chairs, tables and hawker stalls are neatly arrange to fill up the little space to the maximum capacity. There was a good early lunch crowd in Kim Seng when we walked in.
Anyway, we found a small unoccupied table and my brother in law immediately went to our favourite stall to order the food.......

Enter the famous Toa Payoh Lor Mee (Braised noodles)......
The lor mee here taste a little different from Penang Lor Mee, which has a stronger star anise aroma.
Anyway, Kim Seng Toa Payoh Lor Mee has a nice combination of mild spices which makes it unique and tasty. We love the crispy fried yam base fritters (smells like yam to me, lol) that comes with it which goes along well with the gooey dark soya sauce based soup.

A bowl of tasty Toa Payoh Lor Mee which cost SGD2.50 comes with a generous amount of pork slices, eggs, fritters and sambal......yum yum.......makes me wanna go back and eat it!

A Foodie Road Trip to Singapore - Crossing the Second Link Bridge

It has been 4 years since my family last visited Singapore. Anyway, we managed to squeezed in some time to take the kids to Singapore recently. Ahhhh....good to visit Singapore again, a great food haven.....

At Singapore Custom check point in Tuas, Second Link....
This is where we get our passport stamp and every car have to buy a Cash Card from the office you see in the photo. If you already have Singapore cash card, please remember to put it in the card reader machine at the custom booth to register your entry or else you will have to pay a small fine when you exit the country. If you do not have any Singapore Cash card, then you must purchase one at the office you see in the photo and swipe it at the card reader machine.

After Tuas checkpoint, we drove through PIE (Pan Island Expressway) towards Toa Payoh, Lor 1 (Road 1)to have our favourite noodles.......Wanna know what it is?.....check out my next post.....coming soon!

Spaghetti Farm, Mid Valley Mega Mall

It was just around 1 hour after we had breakfast and my youngest son complained that he was hungry again. I took him to the lower ground level of Mid Valley Megamall to look for some light snacks for him since it was still a bit early for lunch. I spotted The Spaghetti Farm outlet not very far away from the escallator and decided to give it a try.
I was wondering whether he can finish his food so I just ordered a plain Pomodoro Spaghetti (RM6.90) for him. They have a promotion during that time; for every spaghetti meal ordered, you are allow to add a soup and soft drinks for RM3.50 only. So the total bill came up to be RM10.40.

The spaghetti was quite delicious and my son loves it. I guess he likes everything that has tomato sauce in it! LOL!
Nothing to shout about the mushroom soup.....

Since it was still early for lunch, there were still many empty tables. By the time we finished our meal, the crowd started to come it.
A good place to have a family meal!

Angry Bird or Catapult?

When my 4 year old son saw this, he says it is an Angry Bird! I was going like, huh? Angry Bird?....then I suddenly realised that he was referring to the famous angry bird game. LOL!
Well, video games influence our kids so much nowadays. English teachers would have a hard time teaching them proper English. ha ha ha!

Then, after I put some rubber bands on the catapult for him to use, he said, 'Dad, can you give me some angry birds to shoot!'. Pengsan liao!

3rd visit to MCY Restaurant....Signature Dish, Boneless Chicken

This is my third post and review on MCY Restaurant. I didn't get to try out the famous MCY House Speciallity Chicken, so I took my family back there recently. This time around the boneless chicken dish was available. It is actually chicken skin with fish paste like fillings underneath. The chicken is then deep fried using bamboo net as support until golden brown. The taste? Simply delicious.....dunno how to describe, because it is a completely new taste to me!

The homemade Choy Heong Beancurd is very soft and smooth. Taste really good!

This Curry fish Head is actually a complimentary dish and cost only RM8, available for food orders of above RM50. The curry fish head might not look very attractive but it is very tasty. It has a perfect mix of spices.

I love the tender young shoots of sweet potato plants. Sweet and taste when fried plainly with garlic.

The piping hot Ham Yee Fah Lam Poh (Pork Belly with Salted fish). Can't go wrong with this dish.....always taste good!

The total bill came up to be RM 101.20 for 5 adults and 3 children.

Fish Maw - Sand or Salt?

At first I was shocked when I saw these pebbles like stuff in the fish maw that I bought from a vendor in Chai Leng Park, Butterworth. The first thought that came to my mind was the supplier might have put in pebbles into it to increase the weight because the fish maw alone is very light.
But when I investigate further, the pebbles like stuff is actually sea salt. Did they put it in to preserve the fish maw? This is the first time that I encounter this after buying fish maw for many years!
Have you come across this before?
