Update: Burgs By Project Warung has relocated. The new address has been updated at the bottom of this post.

The hawker stalls at Golden Mile Food Centre took up the two lower levels of the building. So far, I have covered most of the must-try stalls on the upper floor.

This week, I ventured downstairs to the lower floor where the majority of the Muslim stalls are. 

Contender number one on my must-try list here is Burgs, a Muslim-owned burger joint run by three friends with culinary background.

Offering gourmet burgers at pocket friendly prices, I ordered "The Classics" - a cheeseburger at $4.90 which includes a serving of thick-cut fries (top up $1 for onion rings).

This is actually an accidental find during one of my many trips to Golden Mile Food Centre. I was walking past the coffee shop at Blk 17 when my nose caught a whiff of curry in the air.

Once, I got home, I began googling for "blk 17 beach road curry" and the term "koothurar" turned up. A further search revealed that Johor Kaki, Seth Lui and Dr Leslie Tay have all blogged about this stall before.

Well, this can only mean that a visit to Koothurar is imminent!

Keng Heng (Whampoa) Teochew Lor Mee @ Golden Mile Food Centre

The second stall that I wanted to visit at Golden Mile Food Centre is called Tong Ji Mian Shi (桐记面食).

Seriously, can the hawkers from this food centre impress me any further?

First, there is the healthy fried kway teow with heaps of chye sim and now this - lor mee with fried lotus root!

Ooh, it certainly got my attention and I cannot wait to try it.

Unfortunately, I am greeted by a vacant unit (#01-100) with no signboard when I got there.

Thinking that I might have gotten the unit number wrong, I circled the row of stalls a couple of times but it seems they are gone for good. 

Thankfully, there is another very popular lor mee stall at the food centre called Keng Heng (Whampoa) Teochew Lor Mee (慶興(黃埔)潮州鹵麵) which have appeared on Makan Places: Lost & Found.

It is also the winner of the 2012 King Of Kings (王中王) award.

91 Fried Kway Teow Mee @ Golden Mile Food Centre

Some time ago, photos of a particular char kway teow from Golden Mile Food Centre caught my attention.

What makes it so special is that it is topped with so much green vegetables you could barely see the kway teow (flat rice noodle) below.

I had wanted to try it then but never did due to procrastination. Distance is also a factor as the location is rather out of the way for me. It does not make sense for me to go all the way there just to have a plate of char kway teow.

I finally found a justified reason to brave the long distance there after I collated enough stalls that I wanted to try at the food centre. The first stall that I visited, is of course this stall known as 91 Fried Kway Teow Mee.

"Why 91?" you asked? That is in reference to the stall's unit number, #01-91.

Teochew Fish Ball Noodle @ Blk 462 Crawford Lane

Update: Teochew Fish Ball Noodle has permanently closed.

There are two very popular noodle stalls at Crawford Lane and people tend to compare the two together although they are starkly different.

One of them is the famous 1-Star Michelin Tai Hwa Pork Noodle at Blk 466 while the other one is this Teochew Fish Ball Noodle located at Blk 462.

Tai Hwa specializes in pork noodle aka bak chor mee (minced meat noodle) while the other one - the one in this post - sells fish ball noodle even though both contains somewhat similar ingredients like bak chor, meat ball and pork slices.

Hup Choon Eating House - Phoenix Tail Sui Kow Noodle @ 1 Binjai Park

Hidden among the private estates along Dunearn Road lies a coffee shop called Hup Choon Eating House and inside, there is a nameless roast meats stall that operates from 7am till 3.30pm.

There isn't much info you can find regarding the stall though I can't say the same for the tze char stall that operates from the same coffee shop at night.

Anyway, I found out about this stall from a friend when she posted a beautiful sui kow (prawn dumpling) on FB. I have never seen a sui kow wrapped this way before so I decided to go see it for myself.

Master Tang's Pork Liver Congee @ Blk 233 Bukit Batok East Ave 5

Update: Master Tang has permanently closed.

A year ago, I wrote about Master Tang who is running his own wanton mee business at Sixth Avenue. For the uninitiated, he is the ex-head chef of Crystal Jade.

Apparently, he has moved to Bukit Batok East Avenue 5 a couple of months ago.

I finally revisited him at his new location at a coffee shop under block 233 which is just one bus stop distance away from Bukit Batok Bus Interchange.

You can simply walk over or take a bus.

Mr Bean SOYummy Durian Ice Cream

So, I was at Yew Tee Point a week ago when I saw this banner in front of Mr Bean.

Durian Ice Cream! Both durian and ice cream are among life's greatest pleasures so what's not to like about them? Even more so if you combine them together!

Now available in single-serve tubs (105g), each tub is less than 200 calories so snack away with no worries! They are also egg-free and dairy-free since they are made from soy.

If you have tried Mr Bean's ice cream before, you would have known that they are not too sweet. There is also no artificial durian essence smell.

To describe how it taste like, I would say it's similar to durian snowskin moon cake.
