Chinatown Eats

You know, I have been visiting Chinatown pretty frequently. Haha, some of you know why. Yes, I needed to get supplies of ribbons and clips for my new hobby. Actually I am not making them for Sweetie anymore, she has a whole load of new clips already. I am making them for my friends' kids mostly. haha.

Ipoh Tuck Kee Sar Hor Fun 2nd floor, Hong Lim Food Centre

This is an icon. It has been here for ages, it has a faithful following lining up outside its stall during lunchtime, and its cheap and good.

There is the long queue. It moves quickly though.

The dumpling soup is tasty and cheap - $3 for like 10 dumplings, and a whole prawn in each dumpling. Delicious!

The crayfish horfun, is a steal at $3.50, and it is simply delicious. Slippery smooth hor fun with savoury prawns and crayfish. Yum Yum Yum.

Loh Mei Specialist People's Park Centre Food Court

Ever heard of Loh Mei? It is a stewed dish with chicken wings, cuttle fish, kang kong, pig's intestines and other interesting things. Hard to find nowadays, but interesting and tasty nonetheless. My mom cooked it once sometime back and it was delicious.

This stall is probably the only stall in Singapore, but it's standard is nowhere near Por Por's! Anyway it is not bad for $4.

An assortment of goodies.

Served with rice, it makes a filling meal.

Chew Kee's Braised Chicken Noodles, Chinatown
This one is also pretty famous. There are 2 stalls side by side, owned by brother and sister, and they are competitors. Not sure which is better, but my friends think that the brother is more friendly so we always go to this one.

The braised chicken ($12 for a 4 person portion) is always good and tasty.

Some greens to up the fibre intake.

Delicious noodles, and they also serve hor fun too. I usually prefer hor fun, but today i just felt like noodles.

And of course lots and lots of ribbons for new hairclips... Here are some in my new collection:

Oh the clips are so sweet! You should take some photos of Sweetie with the clips, she'll look very pretty in them. :)
