Kopitiam @ Vivocity
Lunch was a quick affair, as both JK and I needed to run errands for our respective babies (diapers, brown rice, quick stop at Toys'R'us... you know, the usual stuff for a busy working mom).
Vivocity has a number of food courts (including the famous Food Republic on the third floor). We went to Kopitiam at Basement 2 - for an easy quick meal.
My hotpot bak chor mee (SGD4.50) was better than I expected. I hope it's not MSG-laden. The noodles were a little soggier than I would have liked, but otherwise it was a tasty bowl of thin mee pok tossed in a delicious mix of vinegar, soya sauce, ketchup, chili.
And look at the generous array of ingredients. Pork balls, pork slices, minced pork, liver, sliced mushrooms and a fried pork wonton. All were nice, not too fatty, not too oily. They also add some bits of fried lard in this, so be warned.
The soup had a dumpling and an egg in it. Not too shabby at all.
Then we ran our errands and I was tempted to buy some mooncakes. Because, they even had this chinese orchestra performing next to their stand, can? Wow, this mooncake sale is serious business, man, with so many stalls vying for customers.
