Duo Ji chee cheong fun

Duo Ji has got to be my favorite hawker-style chee cheong fun 猪肠粉, literally “pig intestine noodle”. This nondescript-looking stall in Smith Street (Chinatown) food centre is something of a institution there for chee cheong fun lovers. They open at 7am, but can sell out as early as 9.30am!

Hui Ji Fish Ball Noodle Yong Tau Fu

Hi hi, pardon the long silence. Been busy and also fell sick, so no time or energy to update this blog. This hawker stall is another one of my regular haunts whenever I go to Tiong Bahru Food Centre.
