Poh Cheu is renowned for their ang ku kueh which come in twelve different flavors: black sesame, coffee, coconut, durian, green bean, green tea, mango, peanut, pineapple, red bean, salted bean and yam.

I am honestly quite intrigued by the bold flavors they have come up with for this traditional pastry. What's admirable is that everything from the filling to the skin, is entirely handmade. They have a group of ladies working in the kitchen, kneading and rolling out these babies for us.

I have long heard about Poh Cheu's ang ku kueh and I am glad I finally had the chance to give them a try.

No Name Fish Soup @ Blk 127 Bukit Merah Lane 1


This KPT Coffee Shop at blk 127 Bukit Merah Lane 1 is truly amazing. With only three food stalls and one drinks stall, it managed to keep afloat despite competition from the nearby Kek Eng Kee and Alexandra Village Food Centre.

From Yang Zhou Fried Hokkien Mee in the previous post, the no name fish soup in this post and the ang ku kueh from Poh Cheu in the upcoming post, all three are popular in their own rights with each drawing a constant queue during their operating hours.

The queue at this fish soup stall, in particular, can stretch all the way out of the coffee shop during lunch hour. One reason for the queue built-up is because every bowl is cooked individually, with only one uncle helming the stove. However, you can see him cooking furiously away non-stop over a roaring fire whose flames envelops the tiny pot bubbling away.

For the last 30 years, the owners of Yang Zhou Fried Hokkien Mee have been frying their noodles over a charcoal stove inside a coffee shop at Beo Crescent, effectively drawing long queue of customers everyday.

Two years ago, they relocated to another coffee shop called KPT Coffee Shop at Blk 127 Bukit Merah Lane 1 which, unfortunately, does not allow them to use charcoal anymore.

I am a old school foodie and I am game for anything cooked over a charcoal stove. Although they no longer uses it, I am still tempted to give them a try thanks to the glowing reviews online.

I visited the stall at about ten on a weekday morning with no queue in sight. The stall owner - Uncle Lim - was busy at the back while his wife is seated at the front with the newspapers spread in front of her. I walked up to her and placed an order for a $5 plate.

Weng Kiang Kee Porridge is just next door to Fatty Ox at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre. I have been to Fatty Ox a couple of times but I have not noticed Weng Kiang Kee Porridge there before.

There were a couple of customers sitting around in front of the stall, waiting for their orders thus I decided to join them to see what the hype was all about.

The stall adopts an electronic queue system. When an order is placed, you will be given a number tag which you have to wait for the corresponding number to flash on the screen in order to collect your porridge.

Economical rice, or more commonly known as chap chye png (mixed rice) is no stranger to most of us here. But have you heard of one that specializes in Peranakan dishes?

Today, I am going to introduce Babas Peranakan - a Peranakan food stall located in Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre.

Peranakan cuisine are usually found in restaurants but to have one in a food centre is hard to come by.

Some of the dishes I saw on display included vegetable curry, chicken curry, assam fish, fried mackerel steak, otah and fried long beans among others.

The variety of dishes is quite limited compared to a regular chap chye png stall but that is only because one person is cooking in this space constrained kitchen. However, you can be assured of the consistency and quality of the food delivered.

I ordered a plate of rice and picked chicken curry, bitter gourd yong tau fu and chap chye. I also asked for curry sauce to be splashed over the rice. The bill came up to $5.

While waiting in line for my porridge and fried bee hoon from Chang Ji Gourmet, the Doraemon decal on the shutters of Happies Bak Kut Teh caught my eyes.

After some googling, I found out that the stall owner Connie Chan, is a fan of this anime character. If you check out their Instagram account, they occasionally have Doraemon's merchandise available for sale.

I myself is a fan of the robotic cat from the future hence my particular interest in this bak kut teh stall at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre.
