Noodles with thick dark gravy aka lor mee

Old Kallang Airport Road Market and Food Centre,  Xin Mei Xiang Zheng Zhong Lor Mee stall, has one of the best lor mee in Singapore. You will not be able to get your bowl of lor mee from this stall after 1 pm.  The queue is always long.  The consistency of the gravy is just right but have to eat it hot. The gravy will turn watery once it is cold.   One of the ingredients is crispy fish which enhances the tasty of the lor mee. It is worth queuing for about 10 mins for a bowl of lor mee.

My Ratings :3.5/5

Nearest MRT station: Dakota mrt station
Prices : $3/4/5 ($3..small without fish)

French fries carrot cake

Carrot cake that are cut into strips and deep fried. ..that is the french fries carrot cake I am referring to. So far I can find two markets that sell this....Whampoa market and Old Kallang Airport Market and Food Centre.  Since Whampoa market is currently under renovation,  I get my supplies from Old Kallang Airport Road Market and Food Centre.   The carrot cakes are prefectly fried so they are crunchy. .. like eating french fries. They go well with a cup of kopi (coffee).

6 carrot cakes for $1

Good Old Days....Old School Delights

Remember Mr. Wally, Pei Hua and Bala? These characters were from the English textbooks in the early 1980s. Having a meal at Old School Delights is just like walking down the memory lane. I love the decor in this cafe. They even place a box of toys (five stones, country erasers and snake n ladder games) on each table.  We ordered mee siam, chicken curry, laksa and they really tasted like those I had when I was younger. The chicken wings were crispy and pie tees were good too.
Cakes were not fanciful but tasty. I enjoyed the banana cake and seriously chocolate cake.

Service is good. The staff always wore a smile on her face even when we kept asking for extra plates and forks.

Banana cake....generous portion.

Mee Siam is not too spicy.  Doesn't the plate look familiar?

You can play these nostalgic games with your friends before or after meals.

The Mashmallow Tree @ Telok Blangah

This tiny café is tucked at the corner of blk  at 46 Telok Blangah Drive.
If you don't live around the area you will not know this place. There is a huge table right in the middle of the café which is suitable for a group of friends. If you are there alone or with one or two friends, you can choose to sit at a small table with cozy chairs.
I like the swing in the cafe as it reminds me of a garden.  Every coffee ordered comes with a mashmallow.

Surprise discovery at Jalan Besar...

I feel like a tourist in my own country when I went to Jalan Besar. It is somewhere I have not been before.  I have heard so much about Jalan Besar stadium but have not been there. Finally went there and I like the place very much. It is dotted with many cute cafes. Windowsill pies is one of them. The pies are good. However if you want to order main course,  choices are limited. I wish they have pictures of main courses on display as the waiter had to describe the courses on the menu to us. The pie section should also indicate the name of the pie so that we do not need to ask the counter staff. Prices of pies are also not displayed. Overall the food is ok. The price is abit steep for the portion I get...e.g. 2 stuff chicken wings for $11. I would go back for the pies though.

Wheeler's Yard @ Whampoa

There are many unique cafes in Singapore.
Recently I went to a cafe at Whampoa.  It looks like a warehouse on the outside but once you walk into the warehouse,  you will enter another world.
The portion of the food is quite big. I enjoyed the all day breakfast set.
