Hawker Centre @ Changi Village

10 05 2010

Tuck away at the northern east end of Singapore, Changi Village boasts a variety of hawker stalls that are well known among the locals. On our last day, we paid a visit to this place and tried some of the famous dishes served in the corner of this island.

The hawker food in Singapore in generally cheaper than Malaysia (dollar to dollar comparison), averaging at around SGD 3 – 4 per mail. We arrived there  around 10 a.m. and the place was already packed with customers.

The Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee is quite popular and it is already featured before in my previous post at Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur. But here is where the real deal was. The Hokkien Mee served at Changi Village is flavoursome. The prawns are fresh and the dollop of sambal provides the extra kick. The noodles were also wet as Singaporean version of Hokkien Mee is cooked with more gravy.

The grilled chicken wing was also good. While it is nowhere as great as the ones at Cao Cao Lamb, it was pretty delicious too.

We also had the fried oyster omelette which comes with fresh and big omelettes. It was slightly oily but nevertheless nice. The chili sauce which came with the dish was also good.

And here is something different. The Singapore version of Wantan mee has a tinge of chilli taste mixed with the noodles upon request. They also mixed fried and soup based wanton into the meal. Overall, I find it okay despite having so many food awards received by this particular stall for its noodles. For those who loves hawker food, Changi Village is a good choice to start with.

Buffet Dinner @ Raffles Town Club

10 05 2010

We were fortunate to have Uncle Liong and Auntie Serene bringing us over for dinner at Raffles Town Club on our second night at Singapore. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised to find a good spread of buffet food at the restaurant.

The food was pretty good and one of the most delicious dish there was the pork satay.

Yes, you read that right. The meat is really juicy and sweet.

Using pork as the meat brought a whole new level of taste to the usual satay that we normally eat in Malaysia. Highly recommended!
