5 Food Picks - Fried Porridge, affordable Thai, Fried Chicken Cutlet with Curry

February 09, 2022

Heyooo~

Sharing five food places I visited in the last month! Sorry for some of the crappy photos, I wasn't planning to do a post about these at all. 

Curry Fried Chicken Cutlet 

Expectedly, Hong Lim Food Centre is chock full with people, and this stall has a long snaking queue that disappears down rows of other stalls. Seems like it is very popular! If I were still working in an office, lunch time would be my favourite time for sure. 

This is a treat at $4.50 with a choice of either rice or noodles. 




The curry is rich while not overly watery. It is slightly sweet. The fried chicken cutlet is hot and crispy, as much as it can be, before it touches the curry. The noodles are A+, very springy! Love that. 


P.S. SLII muffin egg tarts are available at #02-32 Hong Lim Food Centre too!

George's Laksa


The funny thing was that ST food writer Tan Hseuh Yun shared a post about George's Laksa on Facebook the night before our planned trip. We were worried that the place would suddenly be filled with queues but fortunately we needn't have worried XD 

This yummy hearty bowl is $4. Skipped the hum on this occasion because the vaccination lady told me to avoid seafood after the jab. It's not my favourite laksa but its thick rich gravy places it in my top three. 

Here's my list hahaha:

1. Parkway Laksa (now at Haig Market)
2. George's Laksa
3. Sungei Road Laksa
4. Katong Laksa (somehow always at the bottom of my list because the soup is almost always served cold on different occasions? I really don't know why. I gave this laksa many chances - don't scold me because it's your favourite, it simply is not mine.)

The uncle is nice and friendly too! Why is this of note? Because sometimes famous stalls have scary auntie/uncles that holler at you especially if you're a little bit slow in your reply. It can be traumatising.

Hamburg Steak Keisuke

Yes I know this restaurant has been around in ages but I never got around to try it. I This meal was the priciest! However, it does include a free flow salad bar and small desserts. We enjoyed that very much.

It offers four types of eggs - sunny side, tamago, tamago with mentaiko and scrambled. You have the usual suspects for the vegetables, several choices for salad dressing, sweet potato, bean sprouts, seaweed etc. I don't remember salad being so enjoyable. Haha. It's a good way to fill up on your greens!


We ordered two sets! One original hamburg set ($20.90) and one that had the oozy cheese ($22.90). Each set comprises of soup, rice, sauce, a tempura prawn, some tofu and of course, the hamburg steak.


The hamburg steak was juicy! The cheese one was surprisingly not bad too but at the same time it is oilier too. The hamburg steak here is very soft and 'flakes' off easily. Personally, I prefer a more solid patty but I guess hamburg steaks are usually soft like that.


The desserts ran out and were not replaced? So I didn't get to try anything from that side of the salad bar apart from the coffee jelly and watermelon. 

Do take note that a server will be taking the salad foods for you due to Covid-19.

Dynasty Fried Porridge

This was my first time trying fried porridge! Rozz often raves about it on her IGS so I was really intrigued. The stall is in a kopitiam, not a standalone restaurant if you're trying to look for it!

Both dishes were $7. 


The fried porridge was flavourful, sticky and comforting. Perfect for a rainy day. Why eat plain white porridge when you can have this? XD

The KL Black Hokkien Mee was pretty good too! I enjoyed the thick noodles. The fried pork lard is very generous for both dishes but just dump them if you don't like them. 

Overall I think it's worth a try! It's not phenomenal but not bad especially when you're sick of the usual hawker fare. Nearest MRT is Bendemeer (DTL) or Lavender.

Thai Gold Food

 I was so wrapped out checking out the art work by NAFA students that I forgot I had to cross the road to Sunshine Plaza. D'OH! 

Thai Gold Food is a familiar haunt for those who work/study near this Bugis area. We ordered a lot of dishes - to a tune of $14 x3 = $42! That's pretty affordable for the variety in my opinion!

1. Pandan leaf chicken
2. Tom Yum Soup *not too spicy, don't worry*
3. Fried Prawn Cake *MUST GET*
3. Kuay Tiao *choose this over phad thai*
4. Pineapple rice
