Jurong Point Malaysia Boleh!

One of the latest craze for west-siders is to flock over to the newly opened food court in Jurong Point – Malaysia Boleh located at level 3, which sells authentic Malaysia’s Street Food.

Although the food court has been opened since a few months ago, but the crowd has not died off, this shows that the food must be somewhat edible.
The most challenging part? To find a seat in the tiny food court. You will at least need another person to ‘chope’ seats for you, else forget about eating in.

I love the longan drink, drank up all by myself leaving not a single drop for Love. haha! It contains pieces of longan meat as well, i like!

Malaysia’s Bak Kut Teh is different from Singapore’s heavily black peppered Bak Kut Teh and there are also much more ingredients such as mushrooms and dried bean curd.

Chicken rice was so-so, chicken meat was normal but the chicken rice is quite fragrant.

Prawn noodle’s soup was too thick IMO

My mum used to fry these “nian gao” together with sweet potato and yam during Chinese New Year! Brings back the nostalgic taste!

Generally the foods are worth trying, prices are normal food court prices ranging around $3 – $6.
If you are bored of the usual food court dishes, you may want to try this out! We will be back to explore more!

Dry Bak Kut Teh

We were talking about Dry Bak Kut Teh the other day while having lunch, most of us did not try the “Dry” version before, so Hazel decided to bring us to have a taste of it.

鸡公煲 is a Bak Kut Teh restaurant at Sultan Gate Street.

The dry version!

We ordered the soup version too.

My favourite Enoki Mushroom, it’s a side dish by itself.
The verdict? I think i’m not very used to the taste of the dry version as the “pork smell” was abit too heavy for my liking. I still prefer my black pepper soup base bak kut teh more LOL! Heard from my malaysian colleague that Malaysia’s dry bak kut teh version taste much better, we shall try it when we get the chance.

After dinner, Love came to pick me up and he was very nice to drive to Marina Square for me to buy a slice of cake from Secret Recipe as i was craving for it.

Calculating the petrol cost and the parking fee, the trip was totally not worth it for a piece of cake, but Love still did it for me. <3!

Founder Bak Kut Teh

The best food one could have for a cold and rainy day – a piping hot bowl of Bak Kut Teh!

I realized it’s so good to stay in the east, because most of the good food is located in the east!

<3 is always the one who brings me around for good food in the east, while seriously, there’s nothing in the west i can bring <3 for a feast. LOL!

<3 has been telling me about this famous Bak Kut Teh restaurant which even Jay Chou visits when he is in Singapore and finally, i get a taste of it!

Before you stepped in, you would have seen the walls of the restaurant plastered with celebrities photo with the owner.

The soup was extraordinary peppery which makes it spicy hot, those who like pepper would definitely love the soup.
The meat was a tad hard thou, which i don’t really favor, i’ve eaten much tender and nicer meats!

If i would to go back again, it would just be the peppery soup and nothing more.

Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh

My bro was enlisted into Army on 4th March and only able to book out 2 weeks later, exactly on his birthday 18th March.
I’ve been looking forward for my bro to get into NS because he would be forced to stop playing his computer games all night long and hopefully become more mature and sensible -_-

After sending my bro in for enlist, my dad and i went Chinatown for Yum Cha before heading for a walk at the newly opened Nex shopping center.
While searching for food to dabao back home for dinner, we chance upon this newly opened restaurant – Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh. Their opening seems grand as there’s lot of congratulatory florals displayed outside the restaurant, which i guess the owner must be of certain status.

My dad and i decided to check out the new place for our pack away dinner. The strange thing is, before you stepped in, the restaurant display photos of the dishes but not the price!

By the time we saw the exorbitant prices on the menu, we were already in the restaurant, it would be embarrassing if we would want to leave. Never mind about that we thought maybe the food is really nice and portion would be big, so should be worth the price? So we tried to order 3 different kinds of meat and to my amaze, they doesn’t serve salted veg? hmm

While waiting for our packed food, which was ridiculously long, we surveyed other table’s dishes, my dad and i were stunned by the small portion of meat served and we were praying that our packed food would be of a bigger portion which would at least justify the price. Our packed food finally came and a sigh of relief as the containers were at least larger than the portion of food served. I made my payment at the counter while my dad took the packed food.

While on the way out, my dad told me that the packed food seems very light and true enough, it seems like just the weight of the container and rice.
To our horror when we opened the container at home….

The meat was like only 1/4 of the container!!

We totally felt cheated! As you can see, the portion does not even cover 1/2 of the spoon!

This is seriously the first time i ever felt so angry over an unjustified meal. Although we ordered 3 portion + rice, but as compared to what outside stall sells, it’s only for 1 person portion even with the RICE can!! The rice is also ridiculously so small in portion and 1 packet cost $1.20!!

In the end, i headed out with <3 for dinner while my parents ate the bak kut teh which they said it’s not even nice! OMG!

Seriously, if you are considering having a hearty bak kut teh meal, please do not visit
