Ban Mian 福州板面 (Toa Payoh Central)

Dry Pork You Mian $3
 I have heard about how awesome the dry Ban Mian located in J99 Eating House at Toa Payoh Central is.
Hence, We made a special trip down to Toa Payoh for this on a Friday evening. The stall name is called Ban Mian 福州板面. It is less than 5 minutes walk away from the Toa Payoh MRT station and HDB Hub. 
Needless to say, both of us ordered the Dry Pork You Mian $3. Most Ban Mian stalls are self-service (i.e. customers would need collect their own orders and bring it to their table. Whereas for Ban Mian 福州板面, all we had to do was order and give our table number. The food would be delivered to our table. This was probably because there was a need to wait for a good 15 minutes. 
Dry Pork You Mian $3
 The Dry Pork You Mian $3 was served with a bowl of soup.
Dry Pork You Mian $3
 A generous amount of ingredients (minced pork, vegetables, anchovy (ikan bilis) was given.
Dry Pork You Mian $3
As this was the dry verison, there was dark sauce at the bottom of the bowl. Before eating it, the sauce should be mixed with the noodles till every strand was well coated with the dark sauce. To be frank, this bowl of Dry Pork You Mian was not fantastic. We felt thirsty the entire night.
Pork Ban Mian $3
On another Friday night, we went to try their soup version noodles. We ordered the Pork Ban Mian $3 and Pork You Mian $3.
Pork You Mian $3
The Ban Mian was slightly undercooked while the You Mian was overcooked. These soup version Ban Mian and You Mian were decent but not the best. What is certain is that their soup version fared well better compared to their dry version.

I doubt I will try their dry Ban Mian again. If you are keen to try the dry version, try the one at 161 板面 Ban Mian (Bukit Merah Central). It tasted way better.

Inspirasi Stall (Bedok Interchange Food Centre)

Soto Ayam $2.50
Inspirasi is a muslim hawker stall located at Bedok Interchange Food Centre. The food centre recently underwent renovation. It is now well-ventilated and airy due to its high ceilings and numerous fans. 
Inspirasi sells Mee Rebus, Soto Ayam, Mee Soto, Chicken Porridge at $2.50 and fried potato patties (Begedil) at $0.50. 
This stall is well known within the area and there would be a perceptual queue during lunch and dinner hours. In fact, there would always be a long queue at this stall just before it opens for business. 
Soto Ayam $2.50
I ordered the Soto Ayam $2.50 because to me, this is probably the best Soto Ayam in Singapore. It consisted of cubed rice with shredded chicken and bean sprouts in a chicken broth.
Soto Ayam $2.50
The two factors that I believe made this stall so popular is because of (i) fresh ingredients and (ii) chicken broth. The chicken meat was surprisingly soft; tender while the bean sprouts were not only fresh but also cooked just nice. 

The chicken stock was clear, light, flavourful and slightly sweet. I always add the sambal chilli (which you can add according to your preference) into the soup to give it a wonderful spicy kick and an added dimension to the taste.  

This Soto Ayam is a must try

Minced Meat Noodles (Sim Lim Square Food Court) 2nd Post

Abalone Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle $4
With the recent Sim Lim Square Saga on customers being scammed, most people (locals and foreigners) are avoiding the shopping mall. Most of us would have forgotten that there is a food court at Sim Lim Square basement. What I would like to highlight is that the Minced Meat Noodles at Sim Lim Square is worth a try. Delicious and value for money. (no hidden cost, no warranty charges, no need to sign any contract!)

It has been around 2.5 years since I last visited this stall.  Some of the food items remained at the same price while others were increased by $0.30 to $0.50. There was a queue of around 5 persons when I visited during lunch time on a weekday. 
The bowl of pork lard which used to be placed at the front of the counter was now placed at the back of the counter. Nevertheless, I am sure if you require more pork lard you can request for it.
Abalone Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle $4, Dumpling Soup $1
I ordered a bowl of Abalone Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle $4 and added a bowl of Dumpling Soup $1. 
Abalone Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle $4
Look at the variety of ingredients (mushrooms, fishball, meatball, minced meat, prawn, bean sprouts, fish cake, dumpling, lettuce, scallion) given in this bowl of Abalone Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle which is priced at just $4. Value for money and delicious! 
Dumpling Soup $1
There were 3 pieces of dumplings in the Dumpling Soup. The dumplings were decent and at $1 it was so value for money too!
Mini Pot Noodle $5
 On another visit, I ordered the Mini Pot Noodle which cost $5.
Mini Pot Noodle $5
The bowl of noodles stole the limelight from the mini pot. Look at the ingredients in this bowl of noodles. Normally when such a dish is order, the noodles be accompanied by only beansprouts. But in this case, it was accompanied with braised mushrooms, dumpling and even a slice of abalone!
Mini Pot Noodle $5
In the mini pot, the ingredients were quite usual with the likes of minced meat, prawn, fish ball, meat ball, fisk cake, dumpling and an egg. The mini pot tasted was so-so.

O'sulloc Tea House 오설록, Okrumong 옥루몽 (South Korea, Seoul)

Green Tea Ice Flakes 녹차빙수 14,000 KRW (S$17.50)
If you have been to Jeju Island, you have probably heard of O’sulloc 오설록 which specialises in green tea. O’sulloc 오설록 with its cafe, museum and tea plantation is a popular tourist attraction. It is so popular that it has several tea houses / cafes in Seoul at Myeongdong, Insadong, Apgujeong and Daehangno.
We visited the O´sulloc Tea House 오설록 티하우스 at Myeongdong. It is located next to McDonald's! The place was huge, occupying two floors.
Menu
Menu
The menu..
Besides selling beverages (tea) and desserts such as ice cream, tiramisu and ice flakes (aka bingsu), they also sold tea bags which tourist can buy back home as gifts for their love ones.

ps: You can find some of these tea bags at a cheaper price in the supermarkets in Seoul such as E-mart 이마트. In fact we bought S$400 worth of things in E-mart including Happy Call Pan and Neoflam Pot. =)
Although there were several empty table and chairs at level one, we decided to explore level two. Level two was quieter and had even more seating capacity. There were magazines at the side for browsing and comfortable sofas. The downside of sitting at level two was that we still had to go level one to collect our orders when the drink and desserts were ready.
Green Tea Ice Cream 녹차아이스크림, Jeju Orchid Green Tea (Hot) 제주난꽃그린티, Green Tea Cheese Tiramisu 그린티치즈티라미수
During the first visit, we ordered the Green Tea Ice Cream 녹차아이스크림, Jeju Orchid Green Tea (Hot) 제주난꽃그린티 and Green Tea Cheese Tiramisu 그린티치즈티라미수. Needless to say, everything we ordered consisted of green tea flavour.
Green Tea Ice Cream 녹차아이스크림 6,00 KRW (S$7.5)
The Green Tea Ice Cream 녹차아이스크림 6,00 KRW (S$7.5) was served with green tea (matcha) powder sprinkled on top. The ice cream was not overly sweet and the green tea flavour was distinct, but not overwhelming. Quite pricey considering that it consisted of just one scoop of ice cream.
Green Tea Cheese Tiramisu 그린티치즈티라미수 5,000 KRW (S$6.25)
We also ordered a Green Tea Cheese Tiramisu 그린티치즈티라미수 5,000 KRW (S$6.25) for sharing. The Green Tea Cheese Tiramisu consisted of mostly sweet mascarpone cheese while the top layer was generously filled with bitter green tea powder.
Jeju Orchid Green Tea (Hot) 제주난꽃그린티 5,800 KRW (S$7.25)
Jeju Orchid Green Tea (Hot) 제주난꽃그린티 5,800 KRW (S$7.25)
The Jeju Orchid Green Tea (Hot) 제주난꽃그린티 5,800 KRW (S$7.25) comes with a cover and the tea bag is attached underneath the cover. Its a good idea as it keeps the drink warm and when you feel that the flavour has been extracted, you can take the tea bag out and leave it on the cover prevent it from being dirty. You are then able to "reuse" and "refill" as many times as you wish with the self-serviced hot water provided.
Green Tea Ice Flakes 녹차빙수 14,000 KRW (S$17.50)
We made a second trip to this shop for their Bingsu aka shaved ice.
Green Tea Ice Flakes 녹차빙수 14,000 KRW (S$17.50)
The Green Tea Ice Flakes 녹차빙수 14,000 KRW (S$17.50) was huge! Green tea ice flakes, green tea ice cream with red bean puree. This is best shared between a group of people. In terms of bingsu standard, I find this average. The shaved ice was a little too hard. The best bingsu is the one from Okrumong 옥루몽 (I shall talk about this towards the end of the post).

Do note that the drinks and desserts at O'sulloc Tea House 오설록 티하우스 are pretty pricey. But I guess its okay to indulge and pamper ourselves once in a while =D.

Now back to Okrumong 옥루몽. My Korean friends bought us to this dessert place called Okrumong 옥루몽 which is located in Dongdaemun Design Plaza 동대문디자인플라자 at Basement level 2, Store 11.
Red Bean Bingsu 가마솥 전통팥빙수 and Black Sesame Bingsu

They ordered Red Bean Bingsu 가마솥 전통팥빙수 and Black Sesame Bingsu for sharing. The shaved ice were just so incredibly soft and snowy! In addition, in terms of taste it was not overly sweet! This is a must try! The address of this at Dongdaemun Design Plaza (Basement level 2, Store 11), Eujiro 7-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul. I understand that they have several branches in Seoul.
