an old friend bought lunch today at toa payoh lor 8 today on 30.4.2016. ^^

there were several well known stalls, from carrot cakes to ocean fish head curry to white beehoon.

we decided to have the scissor cut curry rice, so we can sit down & chat & not have to queue at separate stalls.

scissor cut curry rice was not yet fully ready & display all their dishes.

we were the first customer at 11am on a saturday, so no queue, we just collected the dishes.

my friend paid S$15.50 for 4dishes for 3pax, about S$5pax. pretty good.

mainly it’s the curry that attracts me! pouring over the rice.

actually come to think of it, it is almost same as japanese sweet curry (also poured over the rice!)

the curry here was almost as good as that at loo’s which we had recently. well, maybe loo’s a bit better la.

curry was good. chicken wings ok just so-so. not sure why they don’t serve chicken thighs?

kong bak

kong bak was very good in texture, taste too, sauce the a bit gluey type, slightly sweet not enough “pang”.

steamed egg with pork & water

steamed egg was good. this a childhood dish still common today.

i remember having it at RI canteen at grange road.

spinach

spinach was usual. pretty ok, not much different from the $10 romaine lettuce at paradise dynasty ion orchard.

both were ok but can do with a bit more oil as the plain veg can be a bit “siap”.

overall, it was a pretty good lunch at S$5pax.
