I do frequent Simpang Bedok quite a bit as it is relatively near home and I like the relaxed vibes there. The second floor market has been closed for a good while now and the last I heard it was going to be torn down. But a recent Facebook posting by Andrew made moo curious.
One evening's visit affirmed it. The second floor market is relaunched!
Shall update about some of the stalls there in (hopefully not over) due time. Today's slot is reserved for this cze char stall that churned out lip-smacking Har Cheong Gai.
The Prawn Paste Chicken (aka Har Cheong Gai; $8 for 8 pieces) were a bronzed golden bunch of midwings with a crispy well-fried skin flavoured with the savoury, earthy prawn paste. Juicy and a real delight with plain white rice, these wings were calling out for beeeer!
Also enjoyable, the Beef Hor Fun ($5) was a hearty plate of kway teow stir-fried with a fairly nice wok hei, pieces of tenderised beef (though I personally do not take to Chinese-style tenderised beef) and a mildly garlicky sauce.
Reasonably priced cze char with competent cooking and scrumptious Har Cheong Gai near home? I'm sold. Moohehe.
The uncle recommended the fish head steamboat which I will keep for my next visit. Can't wait to also try some of his other dishes. Hooves crossed.
