Bedok : Mini Food Paradise

18 May
Jalan Tua Kong Lau Lim Mee Pok
308 Bedok Road (Simpang Bedok)
Bedok Shopping Complex
Closed on Mondays

We were going to East Point to collect mummy’s specs and decided to find something to eat near the area. We headed to Bedok! (: And boy was I glad we did! We found where the famous Jalan Tua Kong Mee Pok is! You see, Paul and Peggy have been talking about this place for the longest time, and after trying their chilli (which can be bought from there), I had to try this place. It was THAT good. (:

when you do visit this place, be prepared to wait. There is ALWAYS a crowd! We were there at almost 3pm and it was still crowded!

we ordered the small bowl of noodles ($3) and it was just nice for us, but I think for the big boys, they would need the bigger bowl ($4).

it was SO GOOD. (: loved every single bit of it! The noodles were cooked to perfection and they really gave heaps of meat for such a small bowl!

it came with a bowl of soup which was really tasty! yes i know, I only got good things to talk about this time. (:

we also went to get mini soon kuehs! It has been my favourite since I was really little. Dad use to buy it for me on his way home from work, cause he knew I like them! hehe yes. I was always a daddy’s girl. hehe. This time, for the first time, I went there with my parents.

Esther’s Pot Mini Soon Kueh. Even better than I remembered it to be.

it’s only as big as a saucer! (:

I should do this more often. Going to areas in Singapore that I seldom go to and try their food there!

Now, I’m craving for prata. haha have been for a really long time! haha. Recommendations anyone?

Nandos : Pre-opening Singapore

18 May
Nandos
Bugis Junction
(Malay Street)
200 Victoria Street
#01-85 Bugis Junction

Thanks to Twitter I got a chance to enter the competition of winning pre-opening tickets for Nandos!

YES! Nandos has arrived in Singapore, at long last! (: And boy was it good!

Although there are only limited things we can order. but everything was freee! hehe (: What we were given were Nandos dollars, hehe so cute! 300 dollars to be exact.

So, almost immediately upon arrival, we were greeted by an enthusiastic bunch of people and were shown to our seats. It was a little different from the Nandos in Melbourne, as it’s not self-service. Rather we were served. They gave us a brief but clear explanation as to how the night was going to be and which are the dishes we could order.

As a starter, we were recommended to order the the peri soup and I was so glad you took that recommendation. It was really quite good! (:

and the food came very quickly too!

the happy faces (:

I had an extra ticket (I was given a table of 4) I asked Stephie to join us! (:

out chicken! (: hehe We ordered the HOT! we kinda felt that it’s actually spicier in Singapore as compared to the one we had in Melbourne. (: to suit the taste buds in Asia i suppose? it’s good! not complaining at ALL!

our sides! (: we were given a choice of 2 sides each! The must have that we all ordered as one of our sides was the peri peri chips. Then we ordered a different second side each.

I had the peri corn, steph had the peri potato salad, dad had the rice and mum had the coleslaw.

We all really enjoyed ourselves! (: Everyone who misses Nandos should really go give it a try! You won’t regret it!
