Sukiya Singapore Review @ Bugis +

Sukiya Review @ Bugis +

Sukiya 5

SukiYa is a Japanese shabu shabu or hotpot restaurant with quite a number of outlets in Singapore. The hotpot culture seems to be well-received locally with many new brands chipped into this piece of business.

The all-you-can-eat hot pot offers the typical dishes, there are various types of meatballs, choice of veggies, noodles, mushroom, fresh seafood (squid) and rice. Of course, the highlights are the pork, beef and chicken sliced meat that go with different hotpot soup.

Sukiya 7

At SukiYa, there is up to six types of soup base to choose from. You have Butaniku, Kimchi, Tonyu Miso, Shabu Shabu, Sukiyaki and Black garlic soup.

Sukiya 6

Different dipping sauces are available, the popular one like Ponzu and spicy peanut sauce or simply mix your own dipping sauce.

Sukiya 4

You are given two choices of soup to go with the meal, based on recommendation; we went for the Sukiyaki broth and the new flavour – Black Garlic soup. Sukiyaki is a blend of sugar and bonito stock added to a base of brewed soy sauce, the sugar provides the sweetness to the soup from the savoury soy sauce.

Sukiya 3

Black garlic soup is the latest addition to the range of soup here, made of pork soup base and ground black garlic – a health food by definition. The fragrant of black garlic was distinctive but the base soup was diluted and only a whiff of taste, we feedback to the kitchen and in return we were given addition half a bowl of concentrated pork broth to intensify the overall taste, the bowl of broth was the same concentrated broth to make the base soup, the added broth instantly changed the taste of the soup from a bowl of insipid broth to a full body flavour-rich milky soup.

Sukiya 1

All the items available for the hotpot was seemingly off the shelf, perhaps Sukiya can have one or two house-specialties to create market differentiation. Trays of meat were thinly sliced and the highlight of the meal here, freshness and quality can be assured here and you can go for All-Day premium meat with free-flow Wagyu beef and Iberico pork for $ 10.90++ to enjoy the subtle meat.

Sukiya 2

Limited choice of cakes and ice cream are available for the sweet tooth to end your meal.

Our verdict on SukiYa

Sukiya is largely focused on its choice of quality meat to lure the diners; this is where the attraction all about and everything else was less significant.

Lunch $ 18.90++ Dinner $ 24.90++ All Day premium meat with free-flow Wagyu beef and Iberico pork for $ 10.90++

Michelin Star Restaurants Singapore 2017 (FULL LIST)

The Michelin Guide has awarded 38 restaurants in Singapore this year, up from 29 last year. The three- and two-starred restaurants remain the same, except that Waku Ghin, which had one star last year, has upgraded to two now.

The major changes occur in the one star category:

1. Two restaurants, Forest and Terra, lost their star this year.

2. There are 11 new restaurants. Out of the 11 restaurants, Australian cuisine gets two spots, one occupied by Whitegrass, which I predicted would receive a star. Both Whitegrass and Meta are on my Best Restaurant 2016 list, and Meta also received a star.

3. The stalwarts of Singapore fine-dining get a nod too: Garibaldi, Iggy’s, and Saint Pierre.

4. And there is more appreciation for local chefs as Labyrinth, which serves mod sin, gets a spot.

5. There are also more Chinese restaurants added to the list.

Last year, people complained that because Michelin Guide is sponsored by Singapore Tourism Board, the first time ever that Michelin receives sponsorship, the results might not be fair. They also questioned why hawkers are on the list. Everyone is elated for the hawkers, but the Guide takes into account ambience and service and a food centre doesn’t score well in those categories.

This year, I see another problem. Liao Fan Soya Chicken, which retains its Michelin star, has also a Bib Gourmand entry this year. Both outlets serve the same food and should have similar standard. But why does the hawker stall get a star but the restaurant a Bib Gourmand?

Here’s the full list of the Michelin star winners. Congrats!

Galaxy Note 7 FE ‘Fandom Edition’ Release Date Tipped In New Report

By | June 29th, 2017

If you cast your minds back to the end of 2016, you will undoubtedly remember the failure that was Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7.

After initially being released to excellent reviews and selling well, the phone was recalled twice following a series of high profile fires and explosions in which the device injured people and damaged property.

The recall meant that everyone got a refund and Samsung set about working out what went wrong, and now the company is apparently getting ready to have another go at releasing its big, big phone. It’s called the Galaxy Note 7 FE, or Fandom Edition. No, we don’t know why either.

According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, the new Galaxy Note FE will arrive in stores on July 7th starting in South Korea, although a release elsewhere on the planet is somewhat unclear at this time. It seems there is not an expectation that the re-release of the Galaxy Note 7 will impact on sales of the current flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ double act, but we do wonder how confident Samsung is of that. Timed somewhat suspiciously, the new Galaxy devices are also receiving a new color option in Taiwan, with pink being the order of the day.

For those wondering about the safety of the new Galaxy Note 7 FE, we’re told that the new devices will feature different internals to the ones which shipped the first time around, so there should be no cause for concern there. However, it will be very interesting to see how something with the name Galaxy Note 7, regardless of its full name, will sell to customers that will surely want to ensure their phones don’t set anything alight at the drop of a hat.

Watch this space, and maybe see what the Galaxy Note 8 has to offer too.

Husk – Enjoy Delicious Froco (Frozen Coconut) Dessert at Plaza Singapura

Combat the sweltering weather with a cup of Froco at Husk. Nope, I didn’t spell froyo wrongly. Froco is an abbreviation for frozen coconut, the new dessert on the block that blends nutrients from young Thai coconuts into a creamy ice-cold swirl. Not unlike frozen yogurt, it is a refreshing dessert that is perfect for coconut and ice-cream lovers!

Husk Scooping_edited

Husk blends young Thai coconut flesh and water to form their in-house specialty – a smooth and light concoction that has a distinct coconut taste. It has a low dairy content (around 1%!) and is low in sugar as well. Don’t be mistaken, that doesn’t mean it won’t be able to satisfy your sweet tooth. The young Thai coconut flesh is a natural sweetener for the froco, without leaving it cloyingly sweet.

Husk has 3 sizes available for their frocos: Short ($ 3.80, $ 0.80 for additional topping), Tall ($ 5, $ 0.80 for additional topping) and Parfait ($ 6.50, comes with 3 toppings).

Toppings include mango, pineapple, jackfruit, banana and watermelon for fruits and homemade muesli, homemade granola, peanuts and chocolate for the crunch.

Husk Parfait2_edited

The Parfait is the most value-for-money, as it comes with a generous swirl of froco. Compared to other frozen yogurt establishments, they have a limited variety of toppings. Also, there aren’t any ‘sauces’ to pick from. However, we didn’t miss it at all! We got the watermelon, mangoes and homemade muesli(Thai recipe).

I know how it feels like to step out and have your once tall froco swirl melt into a sad puddle. If you’re going to be outdoors, Husk offers smoothies as well. Instead of being coconut-based, they are fruit-based instead with the addition of coconut water.

Husk Smoothie_edited

We tried the Pump It ($ 6.20) Smoothie which is a Power Smoothie made from a blend of banana, honey and granola. It is rich and decadent with a strong banana taste. Banana helps to replenish the body with essential electrolytes and potassium nutrients.

They also have Green Smoothies like Just Beet It ($ 6.80) which has carrot, beetroot and lemon as well as Fruity Smoothies like the Jumping Jack ($ 6.80) which features mango and jackfruit.

Husk All2_edited

Husk Shopfront_edited

Husk is located at B2 of Plaza Singapura. Their cheery turquoise and yellow decorations make them hard to miss. Would I go back again? Certainly. Froco is a healthier alternative to frozen yogurt and is no less refreshing and satisfying. It even helps to improve digestion and support the absorption of key vitamins, minerals and amino acids. What’s not to love?

While we were there, the shop assistant told us about plans to introduce another type of frozen fruit dessert that is well-loved by the Thais – mango. The release date is unconfirmed and they have not officially launched the flavour yet, but they are currently offering sample-sized cups for customers to try. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait!

Downgrade To iOS 10.3.1 No Longer Possible As Apple Stops Signing The Firmware

By | June 28th, 2017

You can now no longer downgrade to iOS 10.3.1 firmware on a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. Here’s what you need to know.

Today Apple pulled the plug on iOS 10.3.1 firmware, killing the downgrades or upgrades to the said firmware in the process. While normally this wouldn’t matter much for a firmware like iOS 10.3.1 as it has no public jailbreak available for it as yet, Pangu team however did demo a jailbreak on the firmware though it was never released to general consumers.

With Apple now no longer signing iOS 10.3.1 firmware, iOS 10.3.2 is now the latest and only public firmware being signed by Apple. In addition to iOS 10.3.2, Apple of course is also signing developer and public beta builds of both iOS 11 and iOS 10.3.3, later of the two is which expected to be made available for download to consumers very soon.

Last week, at MOSEC 2017 in Shanghai, China, a security research team which goes by the name of KeenLab demonstrated a working jailbreak for both iOS 11 beta and also iOS 10.3.2 firmware. This was the first time a jailbreak was demoed for both iOS 11 and iOS 10.3.2. And while there is no guarantee that KeenLab’s jailbreak will ever see the light of day, it’s still encouraging to see hackers continuously been able to bypass Apple’s security measures and checks in place for jailbreak and research purposes.

We will of course keep you updated on the state of jailbreak affairs but for the time being, if you are already jailbroken, our advice would be to stay on that lowest possible firmware unless and until there’s a jailbreak made available to public for latest firmware versions.

Kueh Ho Jiak – Unique Modern Ang Ku Kueh with Sweet Potato Skin!

Kueh Ho Jiak Shop

Ang Ku Kueh is a small oval-shaped Chinese pastry that has chewy and sticky glutinous rice flour skin wrapped around a sweet filling that fills the centre of the pastry. Traditionally, it is red in colour. However, the ones at Kueh Ho Jiak come in an array of colours – purple, brown, yellow and even BLACK.

Kueh Ho Jiak All

Rest assured, for there is no artificial colouring and preservatives added to the ang ku kueh here. The skin gets its colour from the sweet potatoes that it is made from. 5 different types of sweet potatoes are used in the creation of the skin. Think Hannah sweet potatoes, Japanese sweet potatoes, Jewel sweet potatoes, Purple sweet potatoes and Garnet sweet potatoes. The skin of the kueh is freshly made by the creative Chef Sandy Hannah Tan.

Kueh Ho Jiak Collage

Compared to the usual ang ku kueh, the skin is softer and slightly thinner with fillings that are not as sweet. They have a range of fillings for you to pick from. Flavours include classics like mung bean, red bean and yam, as well as more premium flavours like fresh durian, fresh jackfruit and hae bee hiam.

The Sweet Potato Ang Ku Kueh with Red Bean fillings go for $ 1.20 per piece, and was my favourite out of the lot, as the filling was not too sweet and tasted rather natural. The skin was a bit too oily and left a greasy shine on my fingers after popping the kueh into my mouth. However, we liked that the skin was thinner compared to the usual ang ku kuehs out there.

You might also recognise a certain cartoon character on their kuehs! The Hello Kitty-shaped Sweet Potato Ang Ku Kueh ($ 1.20) contains a peanut filling. The sweet ground peanut filling is sure to be a hit among children. We liked that the ground peanut fillings were tightly packed together in the core of the plump kueh.

The Yam ($ 1.20) filling is made from scratch by mashing yam together. It is made using Chef Sandy Hannah Tan’s own recipe, and is healthier as it is less sweet.

If you’re wondering how to differentiate between the different kuehs, here is a short guide to help you. The Bear-shaped ones have coconut fillings, full purple-coloured ones have yam fillings, Hello Kitty-shaped ones have ground peanut fillings and the flower-shaped ones have either red bean or mung bean fillings.

Kueh Ho Jiak Items

Other than their classic Ang Ku Kueh, Kueh Ho Jiak also offers unique items like Bomb Puff. They currently have Curry Potato ($ 1.50), Extra Spicy Lime Sardine ($ 1.50) and Egg Mayo ($ 1.50). The bomb puffs have crispy laters that are handmade with love with the use of top quality butter.

This is an interesting rendition of the classic Ang Ku Kueh and is worth trying! Do place an order with Elizabeth at 90284359 to prevent disappointment, as stocks are limited after 1pm.

Tai Cheong Bakery Review 泰昌餅家 @ Holland Village

Tai Cheong Bakery 泰昌餅家 @ Holland Village

Tai Cheong Bakery 5

The popular Tai Cheong Bakery in Hong Kong famous with its egg tarts has finally made an inroad into Singapore, the opening of its first dine-in concept cafe or Cha Chan Ting is at Holland Village after a successful test launch of its takeaway counter in Takashimaya.

Besides selling the all-time favorite egg tarts, traditional buns and cake, the bakery shop has other main dishes on the menu, eg. Tastes of Hong Kong include the usual toast, curry and the popular three coloured silky eggs with rice.

The highly raved about egg tarts have to be on our order list but you are limited to two per dine-in customer.

Egg Tarts $ 1.9

The tarts have a shell between the soft crust texture and solid texture, filled with light and smooth fragrant egg custard, the crust was fragrant and packed with nice buttery aroma, the egg tarts have to be consumed while fresh, we bought a box back home but it was mediocre with its crust turned soggy.

Tai Cheong Bakery 1

Bobo Buns and Chicken Pies $ 2.8

The Bolo bun with the butter was additive but the chicken pie failed to impress us, it was ordinary and seriously nothing to short about.

Curry Chicken with rice $ 9.9

Tai Cheong Bakery 2

The curry was rich and robust in flavour, spicy level was well within the tolerable range, the fork-tender meat was a pleasant to the bite and a dish we love the most of the visit.

Scrambled Eggs Toast Stack $ 6.5

Tai Cheong Bakery 4

Bread toast is always one of the top favourites in any of the Hong Kong cafe, no double the scrambled egg was smooth and fluffy, the insipid taste of the egg was simply a disappointment.

Three Coloured Silky Eggs with rice $ 9.9

Tai Cheong Bakery 3

The plate of rice was covered by the layer of silky scrambled eggs,  topped with veggies and roasted pork and pork belly, the plate of rice was doused with some light brown salty sauce to add on the flavour. Undeniably the egg was good but the overall taste of the rice was not impressive at all, a featureless plate of rice in our opinion.

Our verdict on Tai Cheong Bakery

Tai Cheong Bakery may be good with their bakery items but the main on the menu are not too impressive. If something that truly interest us, it will be limited to the egg tarts, Bolo buns and the curry.

Fifteen Nine Cafe & Bar, Jalan Riang: Escargot Mac & Cheese and Other Disappointments

Fifteen Nine Cafe at Jalan Riang, Serangoon takes over the space of Rokeby, and it is a horrible addition to what is an enclave of good food. It lacks clear direction in food and decor; it doesn’t know what it wants to be.

Take the decor for instance. Laminated tabletops with pictures of Eiffel Tower are paired with metallic chairs? The French use bistro chairs. Unable to decide whether they want whitewashed or bricked walls, they attempt to do both. But it’s a polite, not a raw, exposing of bricks under the white paint. #colorwithinthelines #sosingaporean

Like the decor, the menu is a mess. “Pitza” takes up a substantial part of the menu. The menu doesn’t explain what pitza is, but I guess it’s a pita bread with toppings, looking like a pizza. It’s like bread you can buy at Breadtalk. To be fair, if the toppings are interesting, it may be redeemable, but unfortunately, it’s a copy of other restaurants’ interesting pizzas, such as the smoked duck with hoisin sauce ($ 8). The ingredients repeat themselves such as the shredded chicken in two pitzas, shredded chicken ($ 8) and sweet tooth ($ 8).

Mee So Chicky Burger ($ 17) sounds good on paper and tastes like paper. The minced chicken patty is coated and deep-fried with mee goreng, and it’s topped with sriracha sauce. BFF complained, “These are frozen fries, right? And the chicken… it’s frozen too, not fresh?”

I honestly didn’t know and we didn’t want to ask. But the moist-free burger is also taste-free, a terrible waste of calories. Although I advocate a zero-food-waste policy, I did not finish it because I could not finish it.

The escargot mac & cheese ($ 14) consists a blend of mozzarella and gouda cheese. On first bite, it’s not bad, there is a tangy aftertaste and the texture of macaroni is nicely bouncy. The escargot is devoid of an earthy flavor. But BFF had to ruin it for me. He said, “Do you know what cheese they use? It tastes cheap to me.”

Haha. So difficult to eat with rich people. They want expensive ingredients in every thing. But after he said it, the cheese tasted sour to me. The tongue is suggestible.

But BFF pinpointed the major fault of this cafe, other than the cafe isn’t well conceptualized: They sell their food cheaply because they use cheap ingredients. Anyone who has some experience in cooking knows that the most important thing in cooking is the quality of the ingredients. And because the ingredients here are inferior, the food turns out badly. If you get cheap ingredients, you can still make tasty food when you put your heart into it, but unfortunately, from the menu, it doesn’t look like much heart is put into the food design.

Fifteen Nine needs to improve in many areas: their direction, their menu, their look, their food. But their service is pretty good.

“Do you want coffee?” BFF asked.

“Why don’t we drink coffee and have desserts here?”

“No, I really don’t like it here,” he said resolutely. “Let’s go to Wimbly Lu.” I did not disagree.

When we were at Fifteen Nine, we were the only patrons. I gave the excuse that it was a weekday afternoon. But two doors down, at Wimbly Lu, it was full house. We paid $ 36 for two persons.

New iOS 10 Jailbreak Tweaks: Actif 2, Callisto Pro, Kairos 2, Creamy, And More

By | June 25th, 2017

Jailbreak tweaks are never the easiest things to come by, not because there aren’t many to choose from, but actually quite the opposite.

With so many jailbreak tweaks floating around Cydia, it can often be difficult or almost impossible to see the wood for the trees, and jailbreak tweak overload is no fun for anyone.

We know that as much as anyone here at RP, which is why each and every weekend, we gather the most noteworthy new and updated tweaks, and bring them to you right here. This week, we have nine tweaks that we think you are going to dig, and while some of them may be familiar to you, we also strongly suspect there will be enough new blood in here to keep even the most experienced jailbreaker happy. So without further ado, let’s just jump right in, shall we? All tweaks are available via the BigBoss repository, and the cost, if any, will be mentioned.

ClassicPlayer ($ 0.99, BigBoss)

Do you remember the very first iPod? We do, and while today’s technology is lightyears ahead of it, we do sometimes miss it. ClassicPlayer brings some of the clickwheel fun to iOS, and we think you are going to love it.

Kairos 2 ($ 2.99, BigBoss)

Being able to schedule when an iMessage or SMS is sent is something we still cannot believe iOS does not do as standard. With Kairos 2, you don’t need to worry about that fact.

Sinatra ($ 1.99, BigBoss)

The standard, stock Now Playing interface within iOS is cool and all, but couldn’t it be a little bit more interesting? Why yes it could. Enter Sinatra.

HomeCardIconLabel (Free, BigBoss)

A simple tweak, users of this can set an icon and a label for the Home page, making it more recognizable in the app switcher.

CamMode (Free, BigBoss)

The kind of tweak we love, CamMode does one thing and one thing only, but it does it well. With CamMode installed, you will receive a HUD telling you which camera mode you activated when switching between them in the stock Camera app.

Callisto Pro ($ 2.49, BigBoss)

With Calisto Pro installed, a whole host of added options and features are brought to the iOS Lock screen. These include the ability to be notified the last time a device was locked and even setting the current time as the device’s passcode.

Actif 2 (Free, BigBoss)

Are you a heavy user of Activator? Of course you are, and with Actif 2 installed, invoking an Activator action can trigger an if/or condition check. If a condition is met, X happens. If not, then something else does. This has the potential to be super, super powerful.

Torch on Focus (Free, BigBoss)

Turns the flashlight on while focusing the camera in low light situations.

Creamy (Free, BigBoss)

This package brings the iOS 11 passcode buttons to iOS 10 and 9. For more on the tweak, check out our detailed post here.

The Ultimate Bedok Food Guide – 23 Fab Places You Must Try

It has become a known fact that good food is ubiquitous in Bedok. However, as foodies, we only want the best, don’t we? We all know the popular ones like the bak chor mee at Bedok 85, but what about some of the lesser known stalls in Bedok? This time, we’re pulling out all the stops to present to you the ultimate Bedok food guide! Without further ado, let’s go!

Chris’s Kway Chap

Bedok_Chris's_Kway_Chap

Notwithstanding the long queue in the sweltering weather, Singaporeans still love a set of honest-to-goodness kway chap. Albeit the slightly higher price tag, Chris’s Kway Chap commands a throng of loyal customers, especially on the weekends. While we did find it a little overrated, we loved that the intestines were clean and void of any smell or bitterness. The broth is pleasantly robust without an overpowering herbal taste which some people love. Remember to dip those innards in the tangy chilli for an added burst of flavor. If you have to have kway chap, you don’t have to look any further.

Address: 216 Bedok North Hawker Centre #01-80, 216 Bedok North Street 1, Singapore 460216

Opening Hours: 8am to 130pm daily. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Ye Lai Xiang Cheng Tng

Bedok_Ye_Lai_Xiang_Cheng_Tng

One of the best ways to beat the heat in Singapore is to dive right into a refreshing bowl of ice cold dessert. While there’re admittedly other desserts, this bowl of cheng tng from Ye Lai Xiang Cheng Tng is a noteworthy one. For 3 bucks, this satisfying bowl offers a considerable amount of ingredients including dried watermelon, persimmons and sweet potato. We liked how it’s not overly sweet and is a real life-savior in the heat.

Address: Bedok Food Corner Stall #31, 1 Bedok Road, Singapore 469572

Opening Hours: 12pm to 8pm daily.

Hill Street Char Kway Teow

Bedok_Hill_Street_Char_Kway_Teow

One of our pet peeves (probably yours too) is to waste calories eating something that wasn’t good. Fret not, because this char kway teow in Bedok South Market is definitely worth failing your IPPT and skipping your yoga classes for. Hill street Char Kway Teow ($ 3) is pretty popular so be prepared to come early and queue. We especially loved the wok hei in our char kway teow and the crispy pork lard that added a sinful crunch. The noodles are adequately moist and fried uniformly to ensure a consistency throughout the dish. If you’re going to have a cheat day, don’t cheat yourself by skipping this.

Address: 16 Bedok South Road #01-41, Singapore 460016

Opening Hours: 1030am to 730pm daily. Closed on Mondays.

Hon Ni Kitchen

Bedok_Hon_Ni_Kitchen

As a typical Singaporean, I’m also a sucker for cheap and good food. So, I’m going to share with you a 2-dollar Nasi Lemak because sharing is caring. For $ 2, you get coconut-flavoured rice with your choice of 3 sides which includes everything except chicken wings. Subsequent additions only costs 50 cents each. Yes 50 cents, even your tau hui zui (soya bean milk) costs more than that. You can also opt for your beloved chicken wings at just a buck. Rumour has it that the fish otah is very fragrant. The star and essence of this Nasi Lemak, however, is their homemade sambal chilli which is free!(But don’t take until other people don’t have la) While the food is cheap, the quality is far from cheap. Alas, now I’m sure I won’t be the only aunty queuing for a plate of Nasi Lemak at Hon Ni Kitchen.

Address: 216 Bedok North Hawker Centre, 216 Bedok North Street 1 #01-07

Opening Hours: 730am-2pm daily. Closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Plum And Rice

Bedok_Plum_and_rice

If you’re into fusion food, this one’s for you! Plum and rice uses Umeboshi, a salted Japanese plum, extensively in their Japanese-local fusion hawker stall. This acidic pickled plum is known to aid digestion, mitigate fatigue and even expedite detoxification. They also offer fatty braised pork belly and fresh steamed cod fish on the side of their rice or porridge. For under $ 10, it really can’t get any better than this.

Opening Hours: 8am to 2pm daily. Closed on Mondays.

Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian

Bedok_Xing_Ji_Rou_Cuo_Mian

Bedok 85 is a crowd magnet when it comes to supper and one of the reasons people flock here is the Bak chor mee. Since there are two Bak Chor Mee stalls, there has to be a better one right? We tried both but found that they’re nearly identical. Despite always having a significantly longer queue than its neighbour, Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian seems to be a crowd favourite. We liked the springy noodles a little better than it’s neighbour. If you’re not in a rush, you won’t be disappointed by the Bak Chor Mee here.

Address: Fengshan Market & Food Centre, Stall #7, 85 Bedok Street 4, Singapore 460085

Opening Hours: 230pm to 130am daily. Closed on Thursdays

Ah Balling Tang Yuan

Bedok_75_Ah_Balling_Tang_Yuan

Also reigning from bedok 85, ah balling tang yuan offers a great-value bowl of tang yuan (4 for $ 2). We were told that they make their tang yuan by hand daily to keep it fresh and chewy. With all the different permutations of tang yuan and soups, you’ll be spoilt for choice. We got the green tea with peanut soup combination and loved the chewy tang yuan with a mildly sweet green tea core. Great for a sweet dessert fix after your savory Bak chor mee!

Opening Hours: 930am to 930pm daily.

Chai Chee Pork Porridge

Bedok_Chai_Chee_Pork_Porridge

Another well-known stall from bedok 85 is chai chee pork porridge, which serves a hearty warm bowl of porridge that never seems to bore. Some call this hospital food or old people food but I love it! We loved the gooey consistency of the porridge and the pretty generous serving. Add 50 cents for an egg and you’re good to go! Too bad they don’t open till dinnertime.

Address: Fengshan Market & Food Centre, #01-210, 85 Bedok Street 4, Singapore 460085

Opening Hours: 5pm to 2am daily.

Zhong Xing Ban Mian

Bedok_Zhong_Xing_Ban_Mian

Walk into Bedok interchange hawker centre and you’ll notice the iconic yellow bowl syndrome originating from Zhong Xing Ban Mian. Besides the good selection of handmade noodles, they also offer a variety of different ways to enjoy your bowl of handmade noodles. As a regular, I’m usually here for their dry ban mian which I can’t recommend enough. Each bowl comes with oodles of noodles that are thick, yet chewy. We liked how the sauce balances the flavours from the dish, without being too salty nor watery. The anchovies and shallots enhance the flavour and add texture to the dish as well. Since its just beside Bedok mrt, you don’t really have any good reason not to try this if you’re in Bedok.

Address: Bedok Interchange Food Centre, #01-17, 297 New Upper Changi Road, Singapore 460207

Opening Hours: 10am to 10pm daily.

Xin Mei Congee

Bedok_Xin_Mei_Congee

Also residing within Bedok Interchange food centre, my other go-to on rainy days is Xin Mei Congee. While my bias towards the sticky Cantonese version is apparent, this bowl of porridge is still an outstanding one. What sets this apart from Chai Chee Pork porridge is that they set the dough fritter (youtiao) sitting on the bowl instead of cutting it up and throwing it into the porridge. This guarantees a crispy, non-soggy youtiao which is so satisfying. The porridge is rather similar to the one from Chai Chee Pork porridge, even though I would probably give the edge to the latter because I prefer my porridge gooier. 

Address: Bedok Interchange Food Centre, #01-22, 297 New Upper Changi Road, Singapore 460207

Opening Hours: 10am to 11pm daily.

Nangfa Kitchen

Bedok_Nangfa_Kitchen

Situated near Bedok 216 market is this angel of a Thai restaurant: Nangfa Kitchen. Nangfa, which means angel in Thai, is driven to serve angelic food and dish out an authentic Thai experience. We prefer Nangfa to Nakhon because of their consistently good flavors and generous portions. For $ 6, you can get a plate of scrumptious stir-fired minced pork with basil or even a bowl of mouthwatering tom yum soup! We love the authentic flavors of the dishes which makes for a satisfying meal everytime. If your mouth catches fire, Nangfa offers a refreshing glass of ice lemongrass ($ 3) or thai milk tea ($ 3) to extinguish the flames. They’ve even got the popular mango sicky rice and red ruby for dessert! If you’re willing to queue (which you should), then this is one place you can’t afford to miss out.

Bedok Food Corner Hokkien Mee

BedokCornerHokkienMee

If you’re in bedok food corner to get the cheng tng like we recommended, you’d probably be looking for something else to eat since it is rather out of the way. Bedok food corner hokkien mee offers a good old plate of hokkien mee that hits the spot. We love the deep flavors and the use of a thinner bee hoon in this dish. Throw in the belachan for an added fragrance and fiery kick! After you’re done slurping down the hokkien mee, you’ll be grateful that there happens to be an excellent cheng tng store nearby for dessert.

Address: Bedok Food Corner, 1 Bedok Road Singapore 469572

Opening Hours: 4pm to 9pm daily. Closed on Mondays.

Percolate Cafe

Bedok_Percolate_Café

Given Singapore’s humid and sunny weather, some of you might prefer to hang out in a café to blow some steam off after a long week instead of going to a crowded hawker centre. Percolate café is a go-to for many to get their coffee fix and chill hang-out sessions. They use Papa Palheta coffee beans here. We love the minimalistic interior and the homey vibe that the café exudes. If you need a chill place to read your book or emails, this cafe is probably it.

Address: 136 Bedok North Avenue 3 #01-152, Singapore 460136

Mobile: 8256 0316

Opening Hours: 1030am to 930pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 930am to 930pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Closed on Tuesdays.

Enak

Bedok_Enak_Nasi_Ambeng

For a wholesome breakfast, Enak serves up delectable traditional Malay dishes at affordable prices. We were impressed with their Nasi Ambeng ($ 5.50) which comprises beef rendang, sambal goreng, bergedil (potato), archar (picked vegetables), terung (spicy eggplant), serunding (grated coconut) and a champion sambal belachan. We love the tender beef rendang which is infused with the flavor of coconut milk. If you’re more of a noodles person, get the Mee soto($ 2,50)!

Address: Block 16 Bedok South Road Market & Food Centre, Singapore 46016

Opening Hours: Opens daily till late lunch. Closed on Tuesdays.

Red Hornbill

Bedok_Red_hornbill

Situated right beside Bedok Library, Red Hornbill dishes out some pretty sweet Kolo mee and Sarawak Laksa. Owing to his heritage from Sarawak, Mr Then Hua San aims to recreate the flavors from Sarawak here in Singapore for Sarawakians that moved to Singapore. At $ 4, the portions of bouncy egg noodles and minced pork were more than generous. We were also impressed by their Sarawak Laksa ($ 5) which boasts a light-bodied broth that somehow still captures the essence of a good bowl of Laksa. We were told that the Laksa paste is brought in from Sarawak to guarantee a flavor you could probably only get in Sarawak. Served with crunchy bean sprouts, shredded chicken and sliced prawns, this bowl of laksa is great if you’re not very good at handling spice. Beware of the snaking queue on weekends (45 minutes wait)!

Address: Block 205 Bedok North Street 1 #01-357, Singapore 460205

Opening Hours: 11am to 2pm, 4pm – 830pm daily. Closed on Mondays.

Milk & Honey gelato

Bedok_Milk_And_Honey_Gelato

Situated round the corner of Bedok 86, Milk and Honey Gelato is a no-brainer especially after your orh luak/bak chor mee/sambal stingray feast at Bedok 85. Easily filled on weekends, this humble café opens till midnight to appeal to the dinner/supper crowd of Bedok 85. Opened around 4 years ago, this cozy café serves gelato and waffles, amongst other items like milkshakes and teas. If you’re a durian lover, rejoice because they sell a premium mao shan wang flavor that you’ll love. If you’re a sesame street fan, then the cookie monster milkshake is for you! Great food is meant to be shared so they’ve even got a buddy meal for you and your plus-one (jio me if you have no one). In spite of the other tantalizing flavors, we still went for the classic Milk and Honey on waffles. The handmade waffles were dense and moist on the inside with a crispy exterior. The Milk and Honey gelato was pleasantly invigorating especially on a hot afternoon. Unlike most cafes, this cafe has a relatively smaller sitting area so better go early after dinner to chope your seats!

FATCAT Ice Cream Bar

Bedok_FATCAT

If you need to get your sweet fix, FATCAT ice cream bar is yet another viable option in Bedok. Inspired by the nickname given to him by his friends, owner, Charles, decided to name his café after his nickname! Keeping to their existing Japanese theme, the interior of the café has been remodified to emanate a Japanese vibe. On that same note, they have also introduced new Japanese flavors including Umeshu (alcoholic), genmai (brown rice green tea), kinako black (roasted soy bean flour), and edamame (green soybeans)! Unfortunately, we weren’t very adventurous and went for the all-time best-seller: Earl Grey Lavender ice cream on a charcoal waffle. We were told that they make their ice cream and waffles in-house daily to guarantee a freshness like no other. 

Address: Block 416 Bedok North Avenue 2, #01-25, Singpapore 460416

Refuel Café

Bedok_Refuel_Cafe

Eating out with a group or friends or family can be tough because everybody wants something different. Located just beside Bedok Reservoir, Refuel café’s extensive menu is bound to put a smile on every face. While it is seemingly out of the way, this café is no stranger to Bedokers. What stood out was their all-day brunch selection which serves up your favorite breakfast all day err day. We decided to go for the Honey BBQ ribs which was one of their bestsellers. For $ 14.90, we were not disappointed with the generous serving of 8 juicy ribs drenched in a sweet tangy BBQ sauce. Served with corn and slaw, the ribs were tender and just delectable.

Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup

Bedok_Seng_Kee

One of our favorites for rainy days is the kidney mee sua from Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal soup. We especially love the thick, rich herbal soup which is just irresistible. For $ 4, you get a hearty bowl of mee sua with kidneys, innards or lean meat. We like how the herbal taste does not overpower the dish and the generous serving. Overshadowed by their slurp-worthy mee sua, the steamed fish is yet another noteworthy dish from Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup. You can customize and choose how you like your fish to be cooked. Depending on the number of people you’re feasting with, they’ll recommend an appropriate portion that will ensure that you go home satisfied. 

Opening Hours: 12pm to 12mn daily.

Bedok North 85 Fried Oyster

Bedok_Oyster_Omelette

As our list draws to a close, how could we ever forget fried oyster omelet (orh luak)? While fried oyster omelet comes as an acquired taste for some, this is great comfort food for me. Katong Da Fei Kun is another, yet great, option to enjoy at Bedok 85. The fried oyster omelet comes in thick big chunks which we like. We also appreciate the generous amounts of eggs that’s fried to perfection. Ultimately, the use of fresh big juicy oysters won our hearts over. If you’re headed to Bedok 85 for supper with the gang, get the 10 bucks version and you’re golden.

Address: Fengshan Market & Food Centre, 85 Bedok North Street 4 #01-49, Singapore 460085

Opening Hours: 2pm to 3am daily.

Ah Wah Rojak

Bedok_Ah_Wah_Rojak

Whilst waiting for your sinful char kway teow from Bedok South Market and Food Center, you’ll probably want something to munch on to help pass the time right? Ah Wah Rojak showcases an interesting take on the popular Chinese rojak dish by using cuttlefish for an added crunch and flavor. We especially love the prawn paste which is just the way we like it: sweet, sticky, tangy and not too watery. What makes this stall stand out from other rojak stalls is the extra step they take in toasting the fried beancurd (taupok) and dough fritters (youtiao) to guarantee a warm toasty crunch. Mix all that together in a mixing bowl and we’ve got ourselves a winner! Who knew waiting for char kway teow could be this enjoyable?

Address: 16 Bedok South Road #01-36, Singapore 460016

Opening Hours: 12pm to 2pm, 530pm to 1030pm daily.

Chai Chee Fried Carrot Cake

Bedok_Chai_Chee_Fried_Carrot_Cake

Contrary to traditional fried carrot cake which we just love for breakfast, Chai Chee fried carrot cake offers patrons a bag full of thick fried carrot cake strips without the egg. They look like fries and are just as addictive as fries. Bite into the crisp exterior to reveal soft toasty carrot cake that is just surreal. It’s like fries, just better and cheaper. Once you start, you won’t stop. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Address: 216 Bedok North Hawker Centre, 216 Bedok North Street 1, #01-55, Singapore 460216

Opening Hours: 5am to 1pm daily.

Tian Nan Xing Minced Pork Noodles

Bedok_Tian_Nan_Xing_Bak_Chor_Mee

To end the list with a bang, here is yet another bowl of bak chor goodness that you shouldn’t miss out on. With over 80 years of history, Tian Nan Xing bak chor mee is one of the reasons why Bedok has been unanimously crowned a Bak Chor Mee haven in Singapore. For the same price as Xing Ji Rou Cuo Mian from Bedok 85, you’ll get a more generous helping of ingredients that makes for an even more satisfying meal. If you prefer softer noodles, you’ll probably like the one from Bedok 85. If you like your noodles done with bite, then this bowl of Bak Chor Mee is definitely for you! We also love the handmade dumplings which were just heavenly. Taking into consideration the shorter queue and larger serving, this would probably be a better bet than the one from Bedok 85. Afterall, there’s a reason why they’re still drawing throngs of people after 80 years right?

Address: Kaki Bukit 511 Market & Food Centre, 511 Bedok North Street 3 #01-10, Singapore 460511
