no particular wow factor about this place but it was a pretty cosy cafe w not many patrons & they had comfy sofa seats which made it a nice quiet hangout spot. the waffles ($5.20) were fluffy and sweet but not crispy. had a choice of chocolate, maple or caramel for the waffles. the passionfruit sorbet ($4.50) was sour and flavourful but didn't really taste like passionfruit. the cookies & cream ice cream was good. redeemed burpple on the ice cream so our total bill was only $9.70! the staff were really helpful and nice too ๐Ÿ˜Š

Heard about the new Tuk Tuk Gai that had recently moved into the coffeeshop situated at Blk 279 Sengkang East Avenue โ€” we had previously visited the coffeeshop for the now-defunct Empyrosis; a western cuisine stall that used to be within the same coffeeshop. There has since been some changes with the tenancy of the stalls here; apart from Tuk Tuk Gai, we had also found a couple of new stalls here such as Da Wei Wang ๅคง็…จ็Ž‹ that primarily serves up minced meat noodles, as well as the new Mana Lagi โ€” a concept by the Fattybombom Group that western cuisine, curry rice etc. which are all halal-certified. Tuk Tuk Gai is a concept by the folks behind Yaowarat Seafood โ€” focusing on Thai fried chicken as their primary offering, the stall offers their fried chicken with either Chicken Rice, or Coconut Rice. For those who are not into fried chicken, the stall also offers Garlic Pork as an option for their rice dishes; other Thai dishes that are being served at Tuk Tuk Gai includes Basil Chicken / Pork with Rice, Tom Yum Seafood Noodles Soup, or Thai Green Curry with Rice and Egg. The ala-carte section of the menu comprises of side dishes, while the dessert section has two items listed; a Mango Glutinous Rice and the Tapioca in Coconut Milk.

We were really tempted by the Coconut Rice with Wings and hence went with it; the item being pretty wallet-friendly considering its portion at its price point at $5.90 โ€” comes with coconut rice, sunny side-up, two full Thai fried chicken wings, shallots, Ikan Bilis and peanuts, as well as chili on the side. On first look, one could probably tell that the dish is likely inspired from the local favourite Nasi Lemak, especially considering the condiments that come together with the plate. The rice, which comes with light hue of green, is actually pretty fragrant; comes with a light aroma of Pandan and coconut milk that was fairly alluring, yet being sufficiently moist and fluffy. The sunny side-up is also decently executed; some may call it the the typical โ€œNasi Lemak / Economic Bee Hoon plastic eggโ€ considering how it looks, but we were actually surprised by how the egg yolk was somewhat runny still as we poked the yolk with the fork. Moving on to the Thai fried chicken wings, we were really impressed with how these ones went โ€” not only were they not greasy, but while despite the fried batter being on the thicker side, we liked how each bite delivered a crunch before one reaches that juicy flesh within. The wings have also been marinated with turmeric before being deep-fried; really enjoyed that slightly sweet yet savoury note of the fried chicken here which was a pleasure to have. To further elevate the texture of the chicken wings, they have also added fried shallots to the dish to up that crisp factor as well. The Ikan Bilis were also kept well โ€” delivered the crunch without being feeling anywhere limp from being displayed for too long, whilst being just saltish enough for flavour; the chili on the side providing quite a good spicy kick whilst being sweet enough just like how Nasi Lemak chili should have been that makes it a good accompaniment to the coconut rice.

One of the biggest draw on Tuk Tuk Gai for us was the price point โ€” really liked how all of the mains here are priced below $10; the only item that is priced above $10 being the Whole Thai Fried Chicken which costs $12.90. In terms of food quality, we found that Tuk Tuk Gai delivered; definitely enjoyed the Coconut Rice with Wings that was a great alternative to a usual plate of Nasi Lemak in terms of its composition and price point. Overall, a spot which we are definitely happy to revisit again โ€” value-for-money, and a gem in that Sengkang residents would likely be excited to check out.

Visited One Chuan, a Sichuan restaurant located right outside Buangkok MRT station, with my foodie friends recently. The interior here is really pretty, and dining here does give you a sense of tranquility with its nature-themed ambience.

As for the food, the ones that made an impression for me were the Dry Capsicum Steamfish (fish slices were tender and flaky!) and Crispy Fried Eggplant (taste was sweet, and it was still pretty crispy by the time we ate it!).

Clockwise from bottom left:
~Dry Capsicum Steamfish ($23.80)
~Fried Spicy Chilli Chicken ($14)
~Crispy Fried Eggplant ($12.80)
~Appetiser Cucumber ($6.80)
~Matcha Lava Cake ($6)

quite an enjoyable textural experience with the crunchy cong + light clouds of meat + salty clear broth. But taste wise not super porky. It is more reminiscent of chicken rice soup with a pork slant + pork ingredients (meatballs, pork slices). Still a nice accompaniment to the noodles though!!

Ordered the mee kia dry + chili. One of the better bak chor mees out there. Noodles were cooked just right, doing doing kind. gave generous amount of meatballs, wanton, liver, minced pork and lard. Got some dried salted fish also which is great and not too overpowering too. The dry sauce is very flavourful and less vinegary compared to the Hill Street one so you can request for more vinegar from the auntie if you are a vinegar lover! But I thought it was good enough without :)

For over 32 years, this elderly wife-husband team of Mdm Lim Suan Eng and Mr Ong Lim Chong have been delighting customers with 2 dishes; their signature oyster omelette and char kway teow.
With her vast experience, Mdm Lim handles the frying of the CKT, doneness can be requested (more wet or dry, more or less char), evident of her skill - I opted for the dry savoury version, which carried robust smoky savoury salty sweet flavour.
Garnished with tender fish cake, crunchy chye sim / chinese flowering cabbage, crisp bean sprouts, wispy egg, chewy lup cheong / dried cured pork sausage, and bouncy blood cockles.
Their home made chili, which contains fresh red chili, garlic, lime juice, and pork lard(!), offers a bright spicy savoury sour kick, shiok.

We ordered Pork Noodle (่‚‰่„ž้ข) ($5) (Dry w less chili) & (Soup) on last 2 weeks ago but I was busy with going out during weekend but I have no time to write previous food review. I will do for all the food reviews asap b4 reaching the weekends. So Pork Noodle broth was really good and authentic taste as they were using premium ingredients. I always went to ausg store located at lavender street during weekends and everytime got queue for this particular store. It's not that salty and just nice for overall that they put all the ingredient such as pork liver, meatballs, pork pieces. We felt that the wanton wee was too thick for their skin but the filling was too little in amount.

Located on the second level of Hougang Green Shopping Centre, hiding a ice cream shop full of neon signage on the wall.

Their Binggrae Banana has a strong flavour which is creamy yet refreshing, especially when you have a super hot weather outside.

Buangkok residents can now escape the sweltering heat at this new hipster gelato spot in Hougang Green Shopping Mall! With it's flashy neon lights and unique gelato flavours, be sure to add on Waffles for $5 to go along with a single scoop ($3.90) of Hojicha, Caramel Popcorn and White Chrysanthemum & Goji Berries. Burppler Xing Wei Chua sang high praises for the Milo Dinosaur, which was "sufficiently rich without biting the throat given the โ€œheatinessโ€ of Milo and just sweet enough without being cloying."

You can find drinks / dessert / ice cream in this cafe and definitely nice!

Tried the mix and match dessert before I had Burpple Beyond and it was good. Used Burpple Beyond this time to get 1 for 1 Beverage. Had the Yuzu Grapefruit Smoothie + Honey Royal Milk tea with just the price of $6.90. Quite affordable!

Definitely will return again if Iโ€™m nearby the area! I really love the Yuzu Grapefruit Smoothie! Great for the weather because itโ€™s ice blended!

If you like your oyster omelette crispy, then this is one stall you gotta try. I ordered the small portion ($5.50) which was already pretty substantial! It's filled with crispy bits that were so satisfying, especially with the charred flavour. The oyster were fresh and succulent as well. Totally something I will eat everytime I am in Hougang!
