after a satisfying big prawn noodles at why eat har, a friend suggested going to a retro place for a cuppa on 28.4.2015.

i guess the 2 of us were diehard kopi guys, so we drove in 1 car to king george’s avenue to this place called aeiou.

aeiou didn’t sound very creative? don’t know. it could be that they are a group that is also into children education, edutainment etc.

inside was quite interesting, retro as my friend said.

& there was a vertical landscape wall, though it didn’t look particularly attractive.

flat white was good, smooth & fragrant-

probably about the same as carpenters & cook

also about same as assembly coffee w/o the standard of latte art (not a great differentiator for me)

my personal preference where coffee is concerned –

chye seng huat is better

dutch colony also better.

i supposed cool chic cafe place can be a good way to bring traffic to the antique house. don’t know. 🙂

we did not try the cakes, so my friend suggested we may go again with some friends for the yuzu cheese cake, salted caramel cake & lemon tart. 🙂

S$5 prawn nooldes

had another round of yummy big prawn nooldes at why eat har, a big prawn noodles stall opened recently by my good friend’s brother.

the last time i tried was with a big group of friends on 6.3.2015. this time we had 10 chap pies.^^

the S$5 prawn noodles looked marvellously yummy! 🙂

the 2 prawns (4 pieces of 1/2-sliced prawns) were quite a bit larger than the S$5 bowl at ah hui at balestier food centre.

S$6 big prawn noodles

not so evident from the photo that the S$6 big prawns were much larger than these S$5 ones.

6 of us ordered the S$6 big prawn noodles. not sure if this was the usual pricing as the board said S$8, but prawns do vary in size & price on the day & i know the stalls adjust the prices accordingly sometimes. e.g. when we were at wah kee at pekkio food centre, cambridge road recently, the prawns were larger than what they served for S$10 so we had to order S$15 big prawn noodles.

most of us added the S$2 pork ribs so total+S$8. i think one friend had the S$6 w/o pork ribs.

noodles were lesser than the last round (which was like the 2nd day after stall opened & we feedback that noodles were a bit much).

chilli sauce was more intense, could be because of lesser noodles, but did feel a bit tastier.

prawns were good as last time. the proprietor chong long, my friend’s brother, said the fishmonger told him these prawns were sweeter than anka prawns & a friend agreed it was sweeter. i must say i did not feel much difference. i though the prawns this time were just slightly overdone & not as bouncy as last round, but equally fresh & sweet. 🙂

the pork ribs were very good standard, very tender, consistent but not falling apart & great taste. as a pork rib dish i thought it was very good, very well done. personally though i not specially into the tender pork ribs noodles bit. for pork ribs i prefer bakuteh style with slightly more bite rather than the soft bones teture & feel.
