When I do my weekly wet market grocery shopping at Tiong Bahru Market, one of the regular food places I go to for breakfast is this Chinese vegetarian food stall. It is run by an elderly lady (and her son, I think), and was formerly located at a coffee shop in 56 Eng Hoon Street. Now it has relocated to another coffee shop at the corner of Seng Poh Road and Eng Watt Street, where the famous Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice is also located.
My usual order is their fried beehoon with assorted toppings. The default toppings are mock meats, cabbage, and crispy beancurd sheets.
Although the same dish can be found at other Chinese vegetarian stalls, I like this version because the food is fresh and well-executed. And the fried beehoon has a subtle smoky flavor which is really enticing.
They also have quite a wide variety of side items, similar to ngoh hiang stalls. After you pick your items, they will be deep-fried and served piping hot.
I like the seaweed roll and beancurd; the latter comes with soft and juicy insides. But I don’t really like the spring roll; a bit too peppery for my liking.
The side dishes are not cheap. The above plate with just two items cost S$3.00.
But I would still go back for their vegetarian beehoon.
