San Lou Hor Fun
The rice noodles(Hor Fun) is mixed with fish meat and a lot of bean sprouts in dry gravy.
Very interesting dish as I never see this in other places.
The XO Fish Soup
Weird combination but taste good
Another must try dish - Prawn Paste Chicken 虾酱鸡
A shot at Esplanade
Can see the Singapore Flyer from esplande too
Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hun
You just can't miss the big sign board
Too bad that the black sesame paste and the peanut paste are sold out.
My red bean soup.
Passed by the another famous dessert shop 味香园 on my way home
A good walk at Singapore river before I called it a night
Chinese likes red Lanterns as deco
My friend recommended this little restaurant. Need to have very sharp eyes to locate this restaurant as it is again, blocked by some food stalls in front of it. I also noticed that most of the customers are from china. Does that mean it sells original szechuan dishes? For that, I need to go to SzeChuan and verify it one day. :)
Salty groundnut and sour cucumber & carot as appetizer
Lower Left is Sauteed Diced Chicken with Dried Chilli(辣子鸡)
Upper Left is String Bean Western Style(干扁四季豆)
Right is Sauteed Pork Sliced In Pepper and Chili(回锅肉片)
SzeChuan dishes are mostly salty, oily and spicy. Sounds very negative? No, no, no.....just that they are stronger in taste....Give me a beer, please. ;)
Most of the SzeChuan dishes need it - dried chili

and the DHL Balloon in sky
It is a bit tempting to watch the DHL Balloon going up and down endlessly everyday. So, I decided to give it a try. Furthermore, I only need to pay 50% of the regular price in sgd or the full price in RM. Can you believe it? Isnt that another great news? More about Malaysian gets half price

There are 4 famous stalls(47, 49, 57, 328) or more in the same row. I have compared 49 and 328 on the same day. If I am not mistaken, 328 is the older laksa stall and 49 is quite new. However, both stalls is supported by their big group of laksa fan.
49 Katong Laksa Stall
A bowl of Katong Laksa is always complimented with otak and a glass of barley drink
After that, I moved to the opposite shop, 328.
Still photos everywhere
If you were to ask which stall is better, I will go for 328. There might not be a big difference in the katong laksa, but I feel that 328's otak tastes better than 49's otak.
Little opinion, do not compare it with penang laksa or any other laksa, take it as a new dish. I am sure you will like it too. To me, it definitely worth travelling down for a bowl, or two.
After checking in Swissohotel The Stamford, I started my day from Tanjung Pagar(丹戎巴葛).
After the white house and red dot traffic, I reached the famous Maxwell Food Centre(麦士威美食中心) in china town(牛车水).
Saw long queue at the Zhen Zhen Porridge which I once had my breakfast. In my humble opinion, the fish porridge is not very outstanding. But the porridge, selling at Sgd2.50 is value for money as the fish meat is in every bite. And one must not miss the yu shang(chinese shashimi fish slices) here. You don't normally see yu shang in malaysia hawkler food. Here are the fish porridge and yu shang photos, managed to find the 2 years old photos from my hard disk. :)
silky smooth fish porridge
yu shang topped generously with spring onion, fried onion and sesame
But this time I am going to try something new. This Hup Kee Ngor Hiang has won a lot of rewards and recommendations. In Singapore, the numbers of hanging newspaper, certificates and photos will tell you how famous a shop is.
A plate of pink sausage, liver roll and egg slice. Liver! I didn't know it is a liver roll until I visited their website when i am back in Malaysia. How can they make it? It doesn't taste like liver at all. I personally like the egg slice the most.
Must be a famous chinese temple in China town
Look at the size of writing brush
