Maxwll road Soon Soon Popiah, spring roll ($2.50) - usual ingedients like bangkwang (turnip), garlic, roasted peanuts and beansprouts. Pale in taste compare to other stalls
Katong Kean Kee Fried Oyster ($8/$10) - Crispy and not very oily. Big fat Oyster is fresh and not stinky. Long queue for this stall but i do not find this dish worth queuing.
Tiong Baru Meng Kee Roast Duck set ($10) - Normal to me, the roasted meat is nice
Fried Carrot cake ($4) - Black version is sweet, not over cooked but be prepared to queue as there are alot of customers for this stall. Take note to order and pay for your food first before queuing.
Fried Hokkien Mee ($5/$8) - Moist and tasty. Broth is flavourable and taste of prawn. The noodle really soak up all of the prawn broth making this dish very delicious. recommended for this dish
Drink stall - Expensive drinks sold here. Sugercane sell at $2.50 per cup, isnt this expensive??
Opening hours: daily 11am -11pm
Verdict: 3 / 5
As a local, i strongly do not recommend this place here as there are really alot of better stalls and better quality food out there. The quality of food here is really not worth the price as the price is really steep. But for a tourist, this place is where you can really taste a variety of well-known food in Singapore. Rather than travelling all around Singapore just to have a taste of local cuisine, come here and tour around, it may have what you have been looking for.
