Omelette

Hatched

Hatched is the place for EGG lovers! They have eggs baked, boiled, fried, poached and scrambled! This is the place where no matter what time you wake up, eggs and toast are always available!

The ambience is good for gathering with friends. I love Sir Benedict and Oozy Baked Egg very much. The mashed potato that comes with Sir Benedict and Go Fish were good. The mushroom gravy that comes with it enhanced its flavour.

I would have preferred if the staff could refill our iced water more readily.

Make sure to make your reservations as the cafe is a little small.

Food Court @ Tampines 1

Some really good local food can be all eaten at the food court located at the top level of Tampines 1. The portions are big and really value for money. If you buy the top-up card, your food will get a 10% discount.

The Hokkien mee here is stir-fried with pork’s lard, and you can top up with any amount of crispy deep-fried pork lard. The egg omelette is thick, juicy and the oysters are BIG! The mee hoon kuay’s soup and chilli are good. Not the lousy taste. If you are having a light diet, go for the sliced fish soup that comes served with a piece of deep-fried egg. Its soup is thick and fragrant. My dad particular likes the nasi bryani there. The portion is HUGE and their curry mutton is good. Not to be missed is the chendol at this food court. The gula melaka is very very fragrant. That’s what makes the whole chendol good.

Come here for a try!

Frog Porridge and Oyster Omelette

My favourite place to eat frog legs porridge and oyster omelette! No need to go Geylang and sweat over parallel car-parking!

My colleague had a craving for these today, and hence, we were there AGAIN! HAHA! The only bad thing is that the tables are small – can only fit 6 people at most! Our table is always filled to the sides. And the place is super crowded and a little dirty.

Frog leg porridge: 1 for $8, 2 for $16 and 3 for $22.

The 宫煲 (gong bao) flavour one is the best! Spicy and fragrant! The frog is not the mini small ones, but quite large ones, which are meaty and their meat is so irresistably chewy! The gravy that comes with it matches the plain white porridge perfectly. The plain porridge comes in small, medium and large sizes. They also have it in ginger-onion (姜葱) flavour, which is more suitable for those that cannot take spicy stuff. Seriously, why is it that so many people not be able to take spicy stuff?!?! They are missing out so much food! Next time I will post on spicy steamboat (麻辣火锅).

There is also this stall that sells carrot cake, oyster omelette and Hokkien mee. All of these mentioned are FANTASTIC! The Hokkien mee is not too dry, nor too soggy. And the mee has that prawn flavour all infused! The oyster omelette ($5 or $8) is crispy  and  do not miss out their chilli sauce!!! I usually don’t dip chilli while eating oyster omelette. But this one is super good that I can’t resist! The carrot cake has a lot of egg with it, and almost every bite of it is with egg. YUMMY!
