PappaRichI have heard about PappaRich for sometime, but never tried until now. They are a restaurant franchise from the other side of the causeway and I always believe that I can get cheaper Malaysian cuisine elsewhere rather than paying premium prices at their restaurants here. It’s hard to argue about that, but the fact is, PappaRich has a vast collection of Malaysian delights consolidated under one roof, and it’s a convenient choice for our Muslim friends pampering their taste buds with their love ones as well as for visitors from other countries to have a glimpse what most Malaysian cuisines are about, minus anything that do with pork of course.

I won’t pretend their Prawn Mee is wonderful, but it’s decent nonetheless. With shredded chicken, 4 pieces of big prawns, hard boiled egg, bean sprouts, and water spinach. The soup is moderately sweet, but a good prawn broth usually comes richer.

The Kuay Teow soup came with flat rice noodle, spring onions, chives, and bean sprouts. I’m not a great fan of their chicken broth Kuay Teow Soup, which is light, and unremarkable for that price if not for the accompanying steamed chicken. Their steamed chicken is simply outstanding and deserves ranking among the best steamed chicken in Singapore! The meat are tender, oily, and taste marvelous with the soy sauce. PappaRich do serves steamed chicken with rice in their menu, and I suggest for those who like to try their steamed chicken to go along with rice. I will probably try it in my subsequent visit.

Ipoh Kuay Teow Soup with Prawns & Chicken Slices, $9.90++

Ipoh Kuay Teow Soup with Prawns & Chicken Slices, $9.90++

This dish is quite similar to that of Ipoh Kuay Teow Soup with Steamed Chicken above, same bland soup, but with the addition of chicken slices and prawns. However, given a choice though, I’d still prefer one that comes along with the steamed chicken, because the nicely marinated chicken managed to bring the taste up by a small level.

This wok-fried flat noodles include 4 prawns, egg, cockles, chives, and bean sprouts. On its look, it certainly is attractive, and many diners ordered this dish while I was there. Indeed, it tastes good, probably the closest it can go to the real thing without the use of lard. However, it’s a healthier choice, and this remains the best order I had there!

Dunman Road Char Siew Wan Ton Mee 德明叉燒雲吞面

Published November 28, 2014 by piggie

WP_000032-DunmanI was passing by Dunman Road one weekend afternoon and decided to stopover at Dunman Food Centre to try out Dunman Road Char Siew Wan Ton Mee, an outlet that is somewhat out of my way in normal circumstances.

There was hardly any visible queue, yet I had to wait something like 15 minutes, but the quality of the food at least justified the wait, but not for any longer in my opinion.

There are two attributes worth mentioning, one is their chili, the other being the wanton. Anything else are just mediocre. But well, many others couldn’t even better that! Their chili is the hottest I ever tasted from a wanton noodle, spicy, with mild sweetness. For me, it’s great. But for those who dislike chili, it may not worth the wait. I absolutely have to mention their wanton, not truly fantastic, but it’s tastefully marinated, with adequate amount of saltiness, very flavourful! I would strongly recommend this only if you love both of these attributes, otherwise it’s not worth a dedicated trip here if you are not passing by this tiny food centre.

Home Cook Minced Pork Noodle

Published May 13, 2012 by piggie


I’m not pretending to be a chef, in fact, far from it. I hardly know how to cook! LOL!

It happened one fine afternoon when I was boiling instant noodle, my friend messaged me, hence I responded to it. Took a few minutes off, but I conveniently forgot my lunch. And that’s my last pack of instant noodle, bloated! @_@

I was hungry as a <(=@=)> and I could not wait to get another pack of noodle from the supermarket, so, I scooped the bloated noodle from the ‘soup’, and started thinking what I can do with it.

I very much wanted to twist the noodle off those excess water, alas, I settled on frying them, but not without any ingredients of course, otherwise, it probably serves itself worse than a dog food! LOL! So, I opened the fridge and trying to savage whatever I could do with. Found myself some leftover luncheon meat (well, actually, it’s some corned pork from Tulip), which I shredded into minced pork, and fried with sliced onions. I would very much love to have some spring onions, but mum didn’t keep stock. Next, I fried the noodle in the residued oil and added some of those cheap awful butter mom brought, which actually tasted terrible on breads (seriously!).

After that was done, and I was satisfied that excess water had been drained off, I added pepper and the minced pork on top, along with some pork floss.

And the result? OMG! That was the best noodle I have ever cooked! A buttery taste with semi-crispy minced pork and pork floss, it tastes even better than some restaurants I patronised! And that’s how I turned a tasteless bloated noodle from a vomiting material into a class act! I’m not bragging, and mum cooks better noodle than me, but mum never uses butter in her meals, and I have successfully integrated butter pasta into instant noodle. I hardly ever like pasta noodle, but the buttery taste still fascinates me. Now, I found a way to make pasta out of local noodles which taste much better! Feel so proud! ^.^
