Have been hankering for Malay style Mee Goreng. Not Indian style with loads of egg and colouring or Chinese style which has seafood and loads of ingredients, but the original mee goreng that I used to get in school. Simple with an emphasis on the noodles alone. So tasty. Can anyone tell me where to get the best version? The one I had today was nice but it still didn’t come close to my memory of the perfect mee goreng that I had in school. Maybe the taste was heightened with my memories of childhood, where everything is rose tinted.
The mee goreng was only S$2.50.
The lady at Warung Mak Ning at #02-113, was very sweet and polite. Glad I patronized her stall.
B had nasi padang and he said it was really spicy. But he felt that the one at Arab Street was still very much ahead in terms of taste.
The Nasi Padang stall had a long queue which is usually the case for the more popular stalls.
I had wonderful Teh Alia (Ginger Tea with Milk). It was a bit sweet, but with strong dose of spicy ginger.
Actually all the stalls I patronized here had owners that were friendly and welcoming. Not a grouchy face in sight. How lovely. The whole place had been newly renovated and is so spacious and breezy too. I recall that it used to be very cramped.
I got the tea from the stall with the bright green signboard.
Also indulged in goreng pisang (fried banana) for just 80 cents for 2 pieces. This was not sweet but very oily. Still good.
Saw my favourite Singapore bird twittering about – the little brown sparrows.
At the other end are the stalls selling traditional Malay attires, plus modern long dresses as well.
So many stalls that it was hard to make a choice.
Briyani Express caught my eye.
Sinar Pagi Nasi Padang was the other nasi padang stall with the super long queue.
This was the cutest thing. Roses Cafe is definitely owned by a Liverpool fan. It says you’ll never drink alone. The Bandung here looks very tempting.
The high ceilings were great. Made the whole place very airy. Good ventilation and food smells did not linger, unlike the situation in a cramped air-conditioned food court like Food Junction at Nex.
There was a stall selling Soup Kambing and Soup Tulang. Artery clogging, but B says super yummy.
Besides clothes sold on the second level, below there was the wet market.
As we took the escalator down we saw the spacious wet market and the fruit stalls.
A convenient taxi stand right in front of the market.
