Singapore is fast becoming more and more expensive to live in, and it's not so easy to get a decent meal for <$5.
So let's help one another find good meal for less.
It should be tasty most importantly, filling and hopefully include a drink..
I just had lunch with a bro, and we can get the ball rolling:
At Lengkok Bahru, there is a coffee shop with a quaint ambience, and there under a big tree, you can find a place to eat that fulfils all three. Plus it's near to the service centres at Leng Kee:
The coffee shop has just two stalls - a low-key noodle stall called Block 58 Lengkok Bahru Minced Meat Noodle and a drinks stall that also sells traditional soft, steamed bread.
It closes on some Sundays, as indicated by a little sign on the wall. You will be glad to know it is open today.
Kway teow tng (flat-rice noodles in soup) and bee tai mak tng (short rice noodles that resemble rat's tails in soup) are my usual go-to dishes at fishball noodle stalls and this stall does a good version, with a few cubes of pork lard and a splash of scallion oil.
There is also mee pok, mee kia and mee sua, which you can have dry or in soup.
If you opt for dry noodles, be sure to ask for additional chilli and vinegar so that there will be enough to coat each strand. My mee pok tar last week was far too dry.
Prices start at $3 a bowl. Each bowl of noodles comes with slices of fishcake, fishballs, meat balls and well-seasoned minced pork and lean pork slices.
On a low-carb diet? Order a tasty bowl of liao tang (ingredients in soup) instead. Ask for an egg to be added into the soup for extra oomph.
BLOCK 58 LENGKOK BAHRU MINCED MEAT NOODLE
Block 58 Lengkok Bahru, open: 7am to about 2.30pm, closed on some Sundays.
And the coffee is good too..
