S$15 black bean sauce song fish head 松鱼头

went with sis & b-i-l to two chefs @ commonwealth crescent for a quick lunch today on 18.11.2015. 🙂

my last post on two chefs was 2 years ago, no change in opinion..haha!

it was 11.35am. they were open, no customer yet. we were the first. 🙂

see hum (cockles)

S$7 see-hum (cockles)

we ordered a see hum (cockles).

cockles were tiny! & the serving very small for S$7. inflation la..usd going up? whatever…

for me the best dish was this S$5.50 san lo hor fun.

special sauce song fish head (松鱼头)

but really no comparison with 香港街珍记 – Hong Kong Street Chun Kee, just 1 level up at the market next door

the sauce at chun kee has a nice tangy lime taste, & it’s like 2x the size.

& even the zi char stall hong man ji delights 鴻满记小吃 at mei ling market & food centre sells a good S$13 hk steamed song fish head 港蒸松鱼头.

S$15 black bean sauce song fish head 松鱼头

lunch came to S$27.50. not ex but then servings really tiny. so for me only the san lo hor fun consider good (but then it was not always consistent!). the song fish head & cockles were just ok only…

& lastly, the old lady server had a poor service attitude. haughty, unfriendly, told us curtly there was no sliced fish beehoon soup here, the S$5.50 hor fun was very small, & looked very fed-up when we didn’t order a larger portion.

& interestingly, the young fella who took the bill was quite courteous, maybe he’s the boss..

i think no chance i will come here again for the song fish head la when hk street chun kee is one step away.

Good Ice Kacang @ Sing Heng Dessert (& Bad Pig Trotters ) Mei Ling Market & Food Centre on 20Oct2015

ice kacang

ice kacang – S$1.40

we were at mei ling market & food centre & had the S$13 song fish head hk steamed 港蒸松鱼头 at hong man ji delights 鴻满记小吃.

& also pig trotters & pig liver & kidney soup (below).

i was looking around for ice kacang. the sing heng dessert stall was a bit hidden but i found it anyway. 🙂

ice kacang

ice kacang – S$1.40

at S$1.40 it’s probably the cheapest ice kacang in singapore. 🙂

the one i usually goes to is at adam road food centre. that is S$2, the usual price charged in most food centres.

i was thinking maybe they have a thing or 2 to learn from adam road when the lady  hardly added any evaporated milk. it’s like just a trickle whereas adam road pour like 20ml…lol.. onto the ice kacang.

surprisingly though, it was very good, even though i still prefer more evaporated milk. haha!

& that’s why i decided to record this. a good ice kacang.

pig trotters stall

pig trotters stall

to add to our song fish head hk steamed 港蒸松鱼头 lunch, we ordered pig liver & kidney soup & pig trotters from the stall selling them together with bakuteh & kueh chap. the stall proprietress is a vietnamese.

pig liver kidney soup

pig liver kidney soup – S$5

the soup was tasty, so maybe the bakuteh would be good. i won’t really want to try because the pig trotters was really bad & i lose confidence on the stall.

pig liver kidney soup

pig liver kidney soup – S$5

the pig liver & kidney were so so. i had much better ones….

pig trotters

pig trotters – S$5

the pig trotters i think was a disaster!

pig trotters

pig trotters – S$5

the braising sauce was tasteless. how could it be tasteless?

pig trotters

pig trotters – S$5

when i saw it, the colour & look were all wrong. maybe the taste & texture would be ok, but they were not, downright bad!

there was no gelatine texture & bite.

definitely a stall i will not try again.

was with my sis & b-i-l this morning & originally we drove to alexandra village to take the song fish head. but even at 11am the carparks were completely full & many cars were waiting.

we turned back out at bukit merah & queensway to go to hong kong street chun kee 香港街珍记 at commonwealth crescent, but decided to drop in at mei ling market & food centre to try out the stalls on 20.10.2015.

since we wanted song fish head, we picked the zi char stall at the hawker centre, hong man ji delights 鴻满记小吃.

the song fish head hk steamed 港蒸松鱼头 was S$13. they also served the black bean sauce fish head but sis decided to take hong kong steamed. it would be S$18 at alexandra village & at hong kong street chun kee 香港街珍记 at commonwealth crescent.

the song fish head hk steamed 港蒸松鱼头 was good, as good as the established places, not sure if the fish head was smaller?

sitr-fry kailan S$6

this stall actually quite good food for the price. becos we wanted to try the pig trotters etc from another stall we did not order other dishes.
