went to wife & daughter to nearby commonwealth crescent food centre for makan on 4.9.2016.
parking was ok at 12pm on a sunday. free parking.
we have not tried any of the hawker stalls here (except the HK Street Chun Kee zi char).
so i guess we went by the queue & the dishes we want to try.
ok lunch crowd not really crowded.
both wanton noodel stalls had quite long queue.
i queued at jian kang noodles stall #02-77, like 8 pax before me maybe <15mins.
i had the small $3 wanton noodles. char siew looked anaemic but moist & tasty! i added $1 pork ribs. they were very good, nicely braised, tender & tasty. the wanton & soup were very good too. & the noodles qq, stringy & excellent tasting sauce.
& the dumpling soup 水饺汤 is the best here, much much better than kok kee’s (which is non descript). here S$3 for 5 dumplings, firm & very tasty, just the right texture & taste & the soup was great too!
the S$3 bakchormee was kind of average.
my daughter said it was not too bad. by the time i took it after 15mins queue at jian kang it was a bit soggy.
taste was ok but not standing out, like-
not much queue also, before or after i ordered.
i am thinking to try the other corner wanton noodles with a queue (a bit shorter like 5-6pax) the next time.
