went to sembawag park for an early morning stroll with 2 friends/old schoolmates yesterday. they were living in the area during school days so knew the place really well, and also very good at identifying the flora & fauna. 🙂
after the pleasant walk, i left to join another friend for lunch at havelock hawker centre. i had some business dealing with this friend in the past. he is 10 years my senior, picked up photography 4 years ago, & after selling off his business 2 years ago, is now very active in travel photography & recently started to be involved in charity missions.
we arranged to have lunch at havelock turtle soup 合落山瑞 at 1130am on 5.3.2015.^^
this stall was introduced to me by a friend after the saw my Facebook posting on tan ser seng. i was keen to give it a try. 🙂
timing was good, just before the lunch crowd, and so easy to park.
i ordered S$10 bowl and small S$0.50 yam rice each.
soup was tasty. there were lots of meat, gelatine & some innards. chilli was spicy, and overall taste was very good. ^^
i didn’t think it was comparable to tan ser seng though.
nor fu he at jalan berseh food centre (in fact i think fu he had the best deal for the price).
both had more intense & tastier soup & also turtle paws etc. but for S$10, this was very good for the price. i would probably just order a S$15 bowl for sharing & try the other food like kueh chap & the fish soup which seemed popular.
the yam rice was quite ok. again tan ser seng’s was more much fragrant & tastier but it cost S$1.30.
my friend went to grab some dessert. he had sea coconut jelly & i had soursop jelly. as good as any place & only cost S$1.50!
