根叔美食世家 - Toa Payoh

Owned and managed by a family from Hong Kong. Chef himself made authentic Hong Kong Dim Sum and other dishes that are on par with those that are sold in Hong Kong. Located at the heartland of Toa Payoh market, long queue can be seen from this small hawker stall early in the morning. Recommended to come here before 12pm to avoid disappointment as food gets sold out fast.  

Yam Cake with Preserved Meat ($2.20 small)

This handmade steamed yam cake has very smooth and mashy texture that melt in your mouth. It can be easily scooped with your spoon like eating mash potatoes. Traces of yam cubes could be found within the cake, adding on to the texture of it. Fried onions and sesame seeds are sprinkled on top as garnish. 

The brown sauce is sweet, the kind that you can find outside. Wonderful combination.

Glutinous Chicken Rice (Lo Mai Kai) ($3.00)

The long shaped glutinous rice is filled with delicious chicken meats, mushroom, salted egg yolk and Lup Cheong (Chinese sausage). Salted egg yolk and Lup cheong mixed with soft glutinous rice give out aromatic fragrant and yet dancing around with my taste buds. Totally love this dish as the glutinous rice is done just right, not too sticky or lumpy.

Fried Bee Hoon ($2.20 small)

Surprising this fried bee hoon is rather tasty. It is not dry but quite moist. The bee hoon is fried with ikan bilis broth, which enhance its taste, together with vegetables.  

Prawn Dumpling ($3.00 for 3)

The dumplings are fully packed with prawns, slices of mushroom, carrots and minced meat. Tasty with juicy fillings which i can't stop myself from having more. Really must try!!!
