I’ve heard quite a lot about this food stall at the basement of Katong Shopping Centre that supposedly serves excellent chicken rice. Finally had the chance to try it out while on a Katong trip with mom-in-law and the kids.
In the last few years of lunching at Bukit Merah Central Food Centre, I’ve filtered out a few good stalls and these make up my list of trusty, go-to stalls. One of them is Day Night Fried Kway Teow. There are a few elements I like about their version of fried kway teow. They use [...]

This is one of hubby’s favorite lunches at Amoy Street Food Centre. Briyani + fried chicken — what’s not to like? Especially if it’s done well! Although this isn’t the best briyani rice I’ve tasted, it’s definitely notches above than average. The rice is fluffy and fragrant. The fried chicken (hubby requested for thigh, smart [...]
