Bedok Corner Hokkien Prawn Mee @ Bedok Corner Food Centre - A Delicious Plate Of Goodness


For someone staying in the West, Bedok Corner Food Centre is somewhere I hardly venture to in the far East. Little do I know much about the hawker centre except for the Cheng Tng stall. Without any clue what else is good at the hawker centre, I decided to try Bedok Corner Hokkien Prawn Mee which has a queue.

Hokkien Prawn Mee

A plate of the Hokkien Prawn Mee ($4/$5) comes with squid, prawn, beansprouts, egg and pork lard. Most hokkiem mee stalls use a mix of yellow noodle and thick beehoon but over here, the stall uses the thin beehoon. Without a good control of the wok, it is easy to get the beehoon burnt. Hence I really have to applaud the skill of the stall owner.


The other reason why I like about the use of the thinner beenhoon is that it can absorb the stock better. Every strand of the noodles seem to be coated with the sweet robust stock. However for the chilli, I am not a fan of it. I think it can be better.


The other thing I like about the plate of hokkien prawn me is their fried egg, buried together with the pile of noodles. The aroma of the fried egg provides the extra oomph to the whole dimension of the dish.


Overall, this is a good plate of hokkien prawn mee. I am glad that my trip to the far East was not wasted. I really enjoy the plate of wet and flavoursome hokkien prawn mee.

Wuerstelstand @ 7 Stars Coffeeshop (Dover Crescent) - The Last Sausage Kiosk Before The Equator


It is rare to find an "Ang Mo" running a food stall and it is even rarer to find an "Ang Mo" selling sausages. Erich's Wuerstelstand used to be located in Chinatown. Many fans of its sausages were disappointed when he decided to call it a day. However this was temporary, Enrich decides to reopen the stall at a new location, moving into a coffeeshop at Dover Crescent.

Sausages Snack Platter 4/5

We started with the Sausages Snack Platter ($16) to have a bit of everything. It comes with 4 different types of grilled German sausages with condiments, sauerkraut, pickled chilli and pickles. It is understand that Enrick does not made his own sausages but this is supplied by a German company that produces quality pork sausages.


By the way, Wuerstelstand only sells pork sausages. There is no chicken or beef sausages here. However he offers a variety of pork sausages. For our snack platter, we had Bockwurst - no cheese smoked pork sausage, Kaesekrainer - smoked pork sausage with cheese, Bratwurst - traditional grilled german pork sausage and Spicy Chorizo - spanish style with paprika. My favourite is the Kaesekrainer with its oozing cheese in between and hint of smokiness.

Sauerkraut, Pickled Chilli and Pickles 4.5/5

The snack platter also comes with Sauerkraut, Pickled Chilli and Pickles. I really applaud the thought from the chef. While I think most people may not appreciate it but I love it. This is probably how we can experience the authentic way of appreciating Austrian cuisine.

Meatloaf Sandwich 4.2/5

While browsing the menu, I noticed an item that I have not tired or even seen in Singapore before, the Meatloaf Sandwich ($5). Three thickly sliced grilled meatloaf is sandwiched between a crispy bun. It is then dressed with mustard and tomato sauce. The crispy bun maybe a bit hard for some but I enjoyed the chewy bite. Paired with the grilled meatloaf which tasted somewhat like luncheon meat, it complemented excellent with crispy bun.
