As mentioned in a Char Siew food guide I’ve compiled before, I adore Hua Fong Kee Roasted Duck’s Char Siew rice not only because of the friendly service but because of the char siew rice served with a dollop of dark, syrupy sauce which makes the already fragrant pieces of char siew more flavourful.While the serving of char siew sold here is slightly smaller than most of other char siew stalls, the thinner slices of meat are delicious and even more so when paired with roasted pork.Do not judge a book by its cover is all I’m saying. , it was puzzling for me to think about how such a simple-sounding dish could gain such a reputation but my initial doubts were quickly dissipated.The beauty of having tze char porridge at this stall is that the owners are humble with the dishes they prepare which funnily enough makes their food taste even better.Paired with the all-too-familiar fragrant rice and a syrupy serving of dark soy sauce, the chicken rice at Lee Fun Nam Kee definitely does not disappoint, taste-wise.While I greatly appreciated the chicken rice dish as a whole here, I did notice how the slices of chicken they serve here are thicker than the norm and while many will see the beauty in that, I would have preferred the chicken to be more thinly cut.Besides that minor kink, the generous portion of chicken rice here, together with the dumpling soup is a definite must-try for folks nearby.The claypot hokkien mee at Kim Keat Hokkien Mee is just as delicious as its name suggests.
The egg prata served here is aromatic, fluffy and it tears easily while the cheese prata tasted very much like an Indian-ified grilled cheese sandwich.
The dish is plain but the sauce so full of flavour and the cabbage just the right texture and as do many of the other dishes at this stall, the saltiness, which is not overbearing, pairs very nicely with the basic porridge provided. I absolutely adore muah chee but it is getting harder and harder to find these suckers recently.
It is a relief that Hougang Muah Chee still entertains hopeless lovers of Muah Chee like yours truly.
His congee is well-prepared with a flavourful stock and the porridge comes out warm, smooth and somehow not pasty.
Uncle Kun also serves up other lovely traditional Chinese delicacies like Siew Mai and Yam cake, which are definitely worth a try too.
