Craving for the Mee Pok & Dried wonton noodles with their delicate noodles, fish balls,char siew and sauces in Singapore. Are they an endangered species? Please prove me wrong.

    No, it's not endangered. If anything, there are even more mee pok places these days in the numerous food courts & hawker centres in town. My all-time favourite remains Tai Hwa - link below:

        Interesting development in the past year or so - the 2 brothers split up and now run rival mee pok stalls.

        My fave is still the one above (at Crawford Lane) which is light-years ahead of its rivals anywhere in S'pore, but the brother who's in-charge had also opened a branch in Bestway Bldg (Prince Edward Rd).

        The other brother has stalls in the malls like Vivocity's Food Republic, and the much-maligned ION Orchard.

          Re mee pork, second Gomez and klyeoh's choice of Tai Hwa at Crawford Lane.

          Re Singapore style wonton noodle, I like Kok Kee at Lavender Food Square.

            Oh yes, Kok Kee - definitely one of the very best wanton noodles in the city!

              Really Great! Will try both. Can't wait to get back, and post comments.

              Any suggestion , where to go for those delicate battered, sweet, pisang Rajah ' Goreng Pisang".

                  Will have that for dessert after Tian Tian. Thank you.
                  How about Great Ice Kachang?

                    I can't think of a really good ice-kachang place in Singapore, but you should go to Zion Road Food Centre for its to-die for Chng Teng. There's a dessert stall across from it which does good ice kachang if that's your preference.
                    Else, Anne's Peanut ice kachang stall in Tanjung Pagar Food Centre is the much talked-about by foodies here.

                      Great. Will start with fried kway teow and finish with Chng Teng at Zion Road Food Centre.
                      But will definitely have a go at Anne's ice kachang - seems interesting with peanuts.
                      Thank you so much.

                        You should also buy the latest copy of Makansutra when you're here. KF Seetoh does a nice job and his guide gives a good, detailed introduction to hawker centres & good food places in S'pore. I don't own a copy myself (as I know what I want & where to go) but browsing the guide, I noted that most of my favourite places are correctly reflected & rated in there.
