128 Dessert Stall @ Telok Blangah Crescent Food Centre - Affordable Dessert Starting From A Dollar

128DessertStall3

During my recent visit to ABC Hawker Ah Hua Fish Ball Noodle at Telok Blangah Crescent Food Centre, I also took the opportunity to check out 128 Dessert Stall which is just a few stalls away. The stall interests me because it sells a variety of desserts starting from a dollar which is almost impossible to find nowadays.

Tau Suan 4.2/5

We had the Tau Suan ($1) which comes with you tiao. For the price point, the stall did not stingy with the portion. The mung beans dessert was neither too sweet nor gooey. It was cooked to an enjoyable bite complemented by the crispy you tiao.

Bubur Terigu 4.2/5

The other dessert we tried is the Bubur Terigu ($1). This is also know as the white wheat dessert. Using white wheat and cooked with gula melaka. Coconut milk is drizzled over the dessert before serving. Another delightful dessert which was well balanced. Once again not overly sweet or gooey. I like the addition of coconut milk, providing an addition lift in flavour.

Besides the affordable pricing of a dollar for desserts here, the portion was generous and most important it tasted good! No wonder there was a constant queue at the stall.

Zhen Jie Seafood (珍姐海鲜大虾面) @ Bukit Merah - Not All Lobster Seafood Prawn Noodle Is Good

ZhenJieSeafood7

Lobster seems to be the trend in 2017 making its way into the local hawker scene. The whole viral thing probably started with Sumo Big Prawn Noodle when they started offering lobster for the prawn noodle. Soon many copycats followed and even we have lobster nasi lemak now. Upon coming across the news that Zhen Jie Seafood has opened at Bukit Merah, I decided to make my way down to the stall to check it out.

Lobster Seafood Prawn Noodle Soup 2.5/5

I had the Lobster Seafood Prawn Noodle Soup ($16/$24) which comes with a whole lobster and some clams. Compared to other stalls, the bowl of noodle is rather lackluster with the dinky ingredients. The noodles were also overcooked, which was too soft for enjoyment. The prawn came across as a normal prawn broth which was average but I was expecting more robustness in the broth for the price I am paying.

Crayfish Seafood Noodle Dry 2.8/5

I also ordered the Crayfish Seafood Noodle Dry ($10/$15) to try. The stall owner has ran out of the big crayfish and offered me 3 smaller ones in place of 2 big ones. I accepted the offer but was a bit disappointed when he took out 3 frozen one from the fridge. Once again, the noodle was overcooked. The saving grace is the chilli sauce which managed to give some lift to the disappointment bowl of noodle.

Unfortunately I left disappointed after trying the noodles. It felt like the stall just try to jump onto the bandwagon by simply putting luscious ingredients into their bowl of prawn noodle, instead of fine tuning their bowl of noodle to suit the different ingredients.
