my good RI friend organised a 6pax lunch at ng soon kee fish soup on 15.12.2016. ^^

we arrived at geyland east centre food centre, 117 aljunied ave 2, about 11.40am.

ng soon kee only starts 12pm. so we ordered medium 4x$5 fish soup + S$10 braised duck, got a table at the nice airy outside next to ng soon kee, & few of us went round to look at other stalls.

S$1.50 ngoh hiang

the ter huang kiam chye = pig organ soup stall, aik kee, was listed as one of the fav 5 in this geylang east centre fc.

we considered roastmania, but decided to pass on that this time.

$5 ter huang kiam chye = pig innard soup

$5 ter huang kiam chye = pig innard soup

the pig innard soup was quite tasty, good standard.

the ingredients not too bad too, quite ok for S$5.

S$1.50 ngoh hiang

S$1.50 ngoh hiang

the nogh hiang used to be like such great thing in some reviews.

but really, it is nowhere near the standard of any ngoh hiang stalls, or even some S$1 beehoon mee stalls.

i guess it was passable but even our friend’s helper did a better, tastier ngoh hiang i had recently at his housewarming lunch.

S$4 hokkien mee

S$4 hokkien mee

the S$4 hokkien mee was ok, above average.

stock was tasty, prawn was ok, belly pork strips & lar pok were all good.

quite good, not overly. eg a friend’s brother did better hokkien mee when we had gathering at her house in nov2015.

*******

actually talking about this, my own experimental hokkien mee also better than this la..

ng soon kee fish soup

this arrangement was quite perfect.

as ng soon kee does not start serving until 12pm.

so just nicely after we finished the ter huang kiam chye & hokkien mee, the fish soup & braised duck were ready.

S$5 fish soup

S$5 fish soup

i had originally not intended to take the fish soup. i wanted to just try the duck though i know it was NOT the usual lor arh – brasied duck – that i prefer.

fish soup not my favourite, usually soup quite bland. i don’t mind the fish but it is nothing special to me.

S$5 fish soup

S$5 fish soup

this fish soup though quite tasty.

there were quite a good serving of fish for $5, and the soup was tasty. i am happy that i took the fish soup.

S$10 braised duck

S$10 braised duck

the braised duck was quite what i expected.

nice braising sauce. duck was tender.

S$10 braised duck

S$10 braised duck

its was NOT the lor arh – braised duck – texture & feel that i prefer, just a cooked dish, like braised chicken pieces, very different experience from eating lor arh…

overall i would rate the fish soup best, the ter huang kiam chye next, hokkien noodles & braised duck about same for me.

bee chiam kueh

bee chiam kueh

after lunch we adjourned to the inside rows for coffee.

a friend bought some bee chiam kueh to try.

the peanut sauce was quite good, but the dough was not soft, not fluffy, not fragrant..

after lunch, we drove in 2 cars to bukit batok to attend a very close friend’s mom’s wake.
