LE Cafe Iconic Beancurd Tart & Nostalgic Cakes from the 1960s 麗英豆花撻 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Le Cafe Iconic Beancurd Tart & Nostalgic Cakes from the 1960s 麗英豆花撻

LE Cafe Confectionery & Pastry is synonymous with the best beancurd tarts in Singapore - afterall, they created it. The soft, velvety smooth beancurd filling is delightfully refreshing with delicate taste and aroma of gently sweetened soybean with hints of almond. The stiff buttery crusty cup provides crumbly bite to the famous pastry. LE Cafe's beancurd tart can be addictive and is one of the uniquely Singapore things visitors must try. I have been eating LE Cafe beancurd tarts long before I started blogging.

Is Singapore Hawker Food Too Cheap?

Is Singapore Hawker Food Too Cheap?
Photo credit: Wikipedia

Bumped into the famous Dr. Watch while having brunch at Havelock Road Hawker Centre in Singapore. He is one of the watch experts Singapore courts tap on when they need a professional assessment on the authenticity of ultra luxury watches. He said that it is very difficult for a layman to discern between a $250,000 watch and a $500 clone.

Every Ipoh Tourist goes to Chang Jiang White Coffee 長江白咖啡 @ Jalan Windsor

Every Ipoh Tourist goes to Chang Jiang White Coffee @ Jalan Windsor

Every time I come to Ipoh, my local buddies will bring me to Chang Jiang White Coffee 長江白咖啡 at Jalan Windsor without fail. I had procrastinated writing about it because Chang Jiang really doesn't need any more introduction - too famous liao lah. Ask any Ipohite for Ipoh White Coffee recommendation and Chang Jiang is bound to be mentioned (along with Nam Heong and Sin Yun Loong in the same breath).

Woong Kee Tau Fu Fa. One of the Best Ipoh Bean Curd 旺记祖傳豆腐花

Woong Kee Tau Fu Fa. One of the Best Ipoh Bean Curd 旺记祖傳豆腐花

The humble bean curd is found everywhere in Malaysia and Singapore, but only in Ipoh do people say it is a Must Eat for visitors. No where in Malaysia and Singapore can you find bean curd as smooth and as aromatic as those in Ipoh. (I am not sure how Ipoh bean curd compares with the best in Guangzhou China.)

Ministry of Rojak by Abdhus Salam Rojak @ Northpoint City in Yishun Singapore

Ministry of Rojak by Abdhus Salam Rojak @ Northpoint City in Yishun Singapore

Looking for things to eat in the sprawling Northpoint City mall in Yishun Singapore, I stumbled upon this Indian rojak stall at the old wing (north wing) beside the Subway and Kopitiam foodcourt. Northpoint City is a labyrinth with hundreds of food outlets but not many offer traditional street food fare, so I was pretty excited by this find.

Breakfast @ Kedai Kopi Keng Nam 瓊南茶餐室. The Quintessential Ipoh Coffee Shop

Thanks Gilbert and Cassandra for taking us to 瓊南茶餐室 Kedai Kopi Keng Nam (coffee shop) to experience an authentic Ipoh breakfast. If you have time for just breakfast in Ipoh, I would suggest Keng Nam coffee shop because of the variety and tastiness of the food here, not to mention the good Ipoh coffee.

Nice Food in Woodlands. Selera Menanti @ Marsiling Lane Food Centre

Feeling famish after crossing back to Singapore from JB, I went to the nearest hawker centre, Marsiling Lane Market & Food Centre for a quick bite. I zeroed in on Selera Menanti Traditional Malay Cuisine stall as it had the longest queue. Tried their soto ayam and loved it. I shall be tasting their menu one by one whenever I come by this way again.

Ah Choy Wan Tan Mee @ Muar Glutton Street 亚才云吞面. 麻坡贪吃街

Muar Glutton Street is a short 100 metre long strip of food stalls along Jalan Haji Abu. I like the Ah Choy Wan Tan Mee 亚才云吞面 here - I think it is one of the best in Johor and Singapore. (Disclaimer: This is a "red" wanton mee. Hardcore "black" WTM people can skip to the next post 😝 )

Nasi Campur @ Sudut Selera Sri Cempaka, Johor Bahru

We went exploring Johor Bahru's hawker centres and stumbled upon this popular nasi campur stall at Selera Cempaka (a public hawker centre run by JB city council). Nasi campur is the Malay version of "mixed vegetable rice 杂菜饭" or "economic rice 经济饭" with Malay homestyle dishes.

Low Yau Kee (Lao You Ji) Porridge. KL People's Favourite Congee 老友记粥

Low Yau Kee (Lao You Ji) Porridge. KL People's Favourite Congee 老友记粥

I had long wanted to try Low Yau Kee Porridge 老友记粥 stall which operates at night outside Soong Kee Beef Ball Mee at Jalan Tun H S Lee near KL Chinatown. Many KLites say this humble street side stall serves the best porridge in the world. (This porridge stall is referred to by various names such as Lao You Ji etc but the sign at the stall says Loa Yau Kee.)

Say Yes Hong Kong Dim Sum near Sutera Mall in Johor Bahru 思源香港点心

Say Yes Hong Kong Dim Sum near Sutera Mall in Johor Bahru 思源香港点心

I have seen friends sharing about Say Yes Hong Kong Dim Sum 思源香港点心 for quite a while but haven't been there till today as I don't go to the Sutera side of JB much, nowadays. Say Yes is a good dim sum place as their food is better, ambiance is nicer and more comfortable than coffee shops. But, prices are about the same as kopitiam dim sum i.e. good value for money.
