black pepper chicken chop

Show me on map
This stall has been mentioned in the papers before. But I had heard about it some years back when it was already popular and pulling in the crowds at its previous address across the road at block 55. This location is more spacious and Uno occupies its own shop unit space although it is colocated beside a coffeeshop (you can cross-order drinks/food from there). Also, the bigger HDB carpark at this current address is a bonus to drivers. I tried the black pepper chicken chop which was quite good and not too oily, although it was not griled as hot as I would have liked it. Most of the dishes(chicken chop/cultet, porkchop, fish and chips, and yes, even seafood spaghetti !) cost $5, the lamb chops cost $6, but the star dishes seem to be the beef steaks - black pepper sirloin, rib eye, tenderloin - which cost from $9 upwards.
If you're wondering about the name, well, 'uno' is Italian for the numeral one. Do they live up to their name ? Try and decide for yourself.

This stall used to be at the corner of old block 135 (before the double-storey food centre, block 127 was built). Back then, seating was alfresco and tables overflowed onto the open area outside the hawker centre. Business was good and so was the hokkien mee. When I had my hokkien mee here in this replacement centre (under HUP), something seemed to be lacking although the same guy was doing the cooking. Was it the food or the atmosphere ? I wasn't totally sure. Perhaps it was purely psychological - the old hawker centre had a look similar to the Commonwealth Avenue (Margaret Drive) hawker centre. The laid-back feeling of having your noodles under the stars has somehow been lost to this spanking new food centre.

Show me on map
The bak kut teh here is the clear and peppery type, although the spiciness of the peppercorns used is very mild and weak. The pork rib meat was done just right, tender (seemingly from long slow-cooking) and not overly stiff like what you usually get at the Balestier Road stalls. Overall, this stall is one of the better choices for BKT and braised pork trotters in and around the Toa Payoh region. $30+ will get you and 3 companions a full meal - a generously-sized braised pork trotter; 4 bowls of pork rib soup; a plate of mixed pig tripe/intestines/innards, tofu and braised eggs; one plate of steamed peanuts; a plate of garlicky (lightly) salted vegetables; and rice per pax. Incredible value for money !

This is my first entry for the popular Crystal Jade chain of dim sum and Chinese/Cantonese restaurants. I wouldn't normally want to add these type of outlets/restaurants here, but I've recently been coming here a few times and enjoying the food, so I thought I'd break with good ol'tradition and put this one in. To get an idea of what order, here's a hint: I never fail to order the crispy roast pork cubes (脆脾烧肉) which goes very well with the mustard sauce (drool now, you wasabi lovers). You can also get this same dish at the Red Star Restaurant which is at HDB block 54(or 53?) Upper Cross Street in Chin Swee Estate near Manhattan House. Another dish I tried (see photo) was the Deep Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk and the roasted duck meat. All pretty decently prepared and cooked I must say. Advance reservation is advisable for Crytal Jade Toa Payoh - Tel: 6397-2383.

Show me on map
I tried Ah Hock's some years back and it left a good impression at the time. If my memory serves me right, the father was still involved in running the stall then. This time round, the result was disappointing - the oyster omelette was fried too dry, the oysters seemed 2nd rate and the eggs just didn't give the fresh mushy aroma that I remembered from long ago. All this would have been excusable if it was a $2/$3 plate from any hawker stall, but $4 (the lowest-priced plate) for a tweeny portion served in a sweaty cranky makeshift hawker centre just didn't cut it for me. I'll stick to Chomp Chomp and even Beng Hiang at Amoy Street where the value per-dollar beats this hands-down.

Don't take my word for it though, go check it out yourself :- Opening hours 12pm - 12am midnight, closed on Wednesdays.

This stall has branched out into many outlets throughout Singapore including West Mall, Eastpoint and Marina Square among others. It also has a corner coffeeshop-style eatery along Balestier Road. I ordered a roast chicken rice packet here on a Sunday (Mar 2007), and the rice and chicken meat were both not up to par. It was totally unexpected considering that this stall was once a Yummy King awardee (you see the placard on their stallfront) and endorsed as "Chicken Lickin Good" by Margaret Chan in the Sunday Times (marketing blurb on their white styrofoam packets). Truly, another stall/chain that has fallen victim to the curse of the foodie award and chain expansion. I can't say for the other outlets, but for this one: not worth your trip at all.

This 24-hours bak kut teh shop is found next to a bus stop along Balestier Road. I found prices here quite unjustified when benchmarked against Founder's (unit 347 a minute's walk away). The usual BKT bowl costs $4.50 and the not-so-generous spare ribs soup cost $6.50. The chye buay (preserved vegetables) costs $2 - double that of Founder's (as at this time - early 2007). To be fair, most of the side dishes were rather well-cooked and tasty. Would I come again ? not likely given the many other BKT choices in this area. Also, I'd rather try the late-night porridge supper buffet at Quality Hotel not far from here.

This stall, however, changed my mind and set the benchmark, not only for HongKong style roasts, but roast meat in general. If you've been eating red-coloured char siew (叉烧) then you won't know what you've been missing all this while until you savour the superbly done honeyed char siew (密汁叉烧 - mi zhi cha shao) from this shop. The other winners here are the crispy roasted pork (脆皮烧肉), roast duck and fried chicken. They'll take orders (a few days in advance) for roast pigs as well. Tel: 6283-3695.

This shop is famous for their crab bee hoon / noodle soup.

I myself am guilty of using the shorter form although I knew the spelling on the awning of the Ang Mo Kio outlet puts their name as 'Mellben' in large letters. It seems they made a name change some years back, and before the current location in Ang Mo Kio, they were situated in a Serangoon Central HDB kopitiam near the Lorong Lew Lian area. They have spun off a branch in Ang Mo Kio Block 233 (opposite the current one) called Uncle Leong's Seafood. Tel: 6285-6762.

This stall serves up a wide range of western food choices. Food quality is pretty consistent and above average but nothing really impressive. Prices are higher than most other hawker center or open-air food courts - $5.50 for chicken chops, chicken cutlets, pork chops and $6.50 for lamb chops. The sirloin beef steak costs $7. Given these prices, I don't think they're value-for-money.

The bak kut teh here comes with bony pieces of pork and is really run-of-the-mill and disappointing. The braised pig trotters does better and is a more popular choice among diners. Don't confuse this stall with Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh, located at Block 341 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, which is a better choice by far.

This corner stall is found in an open-air hawker centre located at the 4th floor of this old shopping centre that has seen better days. The hawker centre is an anomaly that seems to be in a timewarp stuck in the 80s. A rare find in an age ruled by the Kopitiams and Food Junctions.

It produces some of the better fried kway teow in this area. If you don't want prata or the over-commercialized food eateries across at Cheong Chin Nam Road opposite this centre, then try this stall, gaze out over to Bukit Timah as you eat and let the surroundings bring you back to the 80s.
