Street food is a quintessential part of the Thailand experience. Wherever you go in the city, there are always plenty of street food serving convenient, delicious and cheap meals. Keeping the mood truly local, the new Talad Thai in Bedok Mall has all the ambience of a Thai street stall – metal tables, old school gates, push carts… A new sister brand under Simple Eats | The Thai Noodle Bar in Changi Airport Transit, Talad Thai prides itself on serving a list of favourite Thai street food.
Pork Slice with Spicy Lime Sauce ($7.80), on the other hand, was a pleasant surprise for me. When you dip the sliced pork and garlic into a green chilli sauce, you get such a burst of flavours instantly. Another dish that wow-ed me is the Fish Maw Soup ($7.80). The soup is rich and tasty, yet not overpowering. Couple with bamboo shoots, mushrooms and shredded chicken, you can choose to have it soup or with bee hoon. Don’t forget to add some quality vinegar to enhance the flavours.
Spicy & Sour Mixed Noodles ($8.90) is a bowl of wildly potent broth which was insanely spicy, intensely rich with onsen egg. If I may, this is probably a better version of bak chor mee. The chicken rice of Thailand may not be as famous as Singapore’s, but it is still a popular comfort food. Using their own recipe, Grilled Chicken with Hainan Rice ($8.90) is well-marinated to give a tender and tasty meat. The rice made from chicken stock is milder as compared to our local version. Their homemade chilli sauce is incredible. The sweet-spicy sauce which will have you gobbling your dish down. I thought it is a great accompaniment for other Thai dishes.

Dian Xiao Er
Unit: #01-73 to 74
Whenever you dine at Dian Xiao Er, the first dish that comes to mind is definitely roast ducks. The ambience is intentionally planned to be rustic and raw with the careful selection of materials to complement the freshness of the herbal roast ducks, which are prepared and roasted in the display kitchen daily.
The history of duck roasting can be traced back to as early as the Yuan Dynasty when it was listed among the imperial dishes. Till today, this delicacy has won praises from former US president Bill Clinton and the Bush presidential family during their visits to China.
At Dian Xiao Er, they choose Cherry Valley ducks of the finest quality; naturally breed off the lakeside. The ducks are first marinated with a myriad of herbs and spices for hours, thereafter roasted with appropriate temperature to keep them from drying out in the oven.
A duck roasted in this manner is crisp to the touch and golden brown in appearance; its flesh is both tender and juicy together with an overwhelming herbs fragrance. We tried the Duck Roasted with Ten Wonder Herbs ($15.50 small), which is marinated with 10 herbs including codonopsis root, foxglove root, licorise root etc. It is crisp to the touch and golden brown in appearance while the flesh remains tender and bursting with juicy herbal goodness.
A new dish in the menu is Golden Lotus Roots with Pumpkin ($11.30 small). The thinly sliced crispy lotus roots are tossed and coated with a layer of delectable salted egg sauce. It is great for starting each meal. Another dish to try is Fiery Sambal Squid with Prawns ($16.80 small) featuring tender squid rings and prawn balls tossed in specially concocted spicy sambal sauce with petai.
Only available in Bedok Mall during weekdays from 11am to 5pm, enjoy a superb plate of Duck Noodles in 10 Wonder Herbs ($8.90). Tossed in their signature Ten Wonder Herb sauce, enjoy a savoury touch paired with tender crisp duck. You can choose to have it with original noodles or spinach noodles.

Known for serving piping-hot bowls of hearty ramen, RamenPlay has a repertoire of gastronomic dishes comprising ramen, donburi (rice bowl) and steamy Shabu Shabu for you to select them.
One of their house specialties includes Pork Yakiniku Tonkotsu Ramen ($13.80). Springy noodles are steeped in the traditional rich pork bone-based broth and piled with thinly sliced stir-fried pork. The yakiniku slices are topped with a light sprinkling of fragrant sesame seeds and a dash of spring onion.
I have always been a big fan of RamenPlay’s donburi, especially this signature Butariki Ishinabe ($13.80). Served in a heated stone-pot rice bowl, the dish boasts both pan-fried and barbecued pork, spring onions, seaweed, raw egg and a drizzle of RamenPlay’s addictive secret sauce. All ingredients worked well together with the pearly morsels of Koshihikari rice. Be blown away by the bursts of flavours!
Some worthy appetizers include Crispy Dango ($4.80 for 6 pcs). Breaded then deep-fried to a tantalizing golden brown, these succulent chicken meatballs drizzled with mayonnaise and plym sauce are great for pairing with any bowl of rice or ramen. The homemade Yaki Gyozas ($3.80 for 4 pcs) are tasty too – juicy dumplings with pork fillings encased in a thin wanton skin. They have been skilfuly pan-fried to be deliciously crisp on the outside yet moist within. Polish off with the accompanying house dip of shoyu and vinegar.

Famous Texas restaurant chain Wingstop has opened its first Singapore outlet in Bedok Mall. As the wings experts, they take pride in serving only the freshest, cooked-to-order chicken wings that they sauce and toss by hand.
With the focus on cooked-to-order chicken, the Wingstop menu features traditional and boneless wings that are sauced and tossed in one of 11 bold, original flavors such as Original Hot, Cajun, Atomic, Mango Habanero, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Hawaiian, Garlic Parmesan, Hickory Smoked BBQ and Louisiana Rub and Oriental Soy Pepper.
For me, nothing beats a classic. The Original Hot and Louisiana Rub won my hearts as both were subtle yet complemented the meats very well to bring them to a whole new level. The Mango Habanero sauce is a refreshing one which my dining partners enjoy very much. Just for Ramadan, they have come up with Kecap Manis flavour which is a big hit for locals.
The easiest is to order the Classic Wings or Boneless Wings sets ($9.95 for 6 pieces, $11.95 for 8 pieces) where you can mix 2 flavours with 1 regular fries, drink and dip. For those who want to try all flavours, the best thing is to gather your friends and enjoy the wings together!

Join in the Bún Chả craze and enjoy a slice of Hanoi while it is now available at all Pho Street Singapore’s outlet island-wide for a limited time period only!

A classic Hanoi meal of charcoal-grilled pork slices and pork patties, served over noodles, we gave a thumbs up to the tender and flavourful grilled meat in a tangy sauce with slices of green papaya and carrot.

Canton Paradise sets out to capture the essence of Hong Kong with its offering of nostalgic Cantonese favourites and an array of Shunde cuisines. The extensive all-day menu offers an affordable selection of Hong Kong classics, like roast meats, traditional dim sum, congee, wanton noodles, nourishing soups and claypot dishes.
When we talk about Hong Kong cuisines, we can never miss out the roast meat. Go straight for the BBQ Combination ($24.80) which combines char siew, chicken and crispy BBQ port in a platter!
I love the Canton Crispy BBQ Pork where pure fatty pork has been slow roasted to perfection for 4 hours. Canton Paradise specially imported an oven to do this. The skin was crispy and the meat was seasoned all the way which gave an explosive burst of flavours. Another crowd pleaser is the melt-in-the-mouth BBQ Pork Belly with Honey Sauce. That bit of fat really gives it just the right amount of texture and juiciness.
One of their highlights in the dim sum menu is the soft Baked BBQ Honey Pork Bun ($4.50). Comes with sweet char siew bits, it’s slightly crispy on the outside but moist within. We were also impressed with the flavours and aroma of Fried Carrot Cake in XO Sauce ($7.80). Cubes of carrot cake were evenly coated with the mild spicy XO sauce – we can’t stop at one. Bite a mouthful into the soft and piping hot Steamed Custard Bun ($4.90) and you get that lava custard egg york that’s slightly gooey and creamy.
Canton Paradise’s Spring Water Tofu is prepared using premium soybeans that is full of proteins, and natural mountain spring water that is rich in minerals. They are finely grinded and filtered 3 times to remove all residue, resulting in smooth and tender texture. The Braised Firm Tofu with Assorted Mushrooms ($11.80) we had was very light in taste.
*DEAL* Enjoy XO Carrot Cake at $5 (U.P. $7.80). From 24 June – 10 July 2016. Valid for dine-in at Bedok Mall. Limited for 1 redemption per bill per table. Terms & Conditions apply.
Yoshinoya is all about affordable and delicious Japanese Beef Bowls. Look at the extensive menu, which is sure to excite even the pickiest of eaters. The Combo Bowls are great if you can’t make up your mind or are just perfect for sharing with friends and family.
These days, you can hear tender beef slices swishing through a pot of bubbling broth as Yoshinoya introduces Shabu Shabu Set ($12.90). The perfect heart warmer includes a hot pot, premium Japanese rice and chukka wakame. Add on $0.80 for a tamago egg. The meat is cooked upon order, so remember to remove it soon when you it reaches you. Plunk into the soft eggs or soy sauce, it’s so fun to eat and can make a filling meal.
Should you feel like eating something else, you can order Yoshinoya curry set or combo set meal. Indulge in rich and aromatic Ebi Fry Curry Ramen ($8.90) drenched in house-made curry that is smooth and potent with a balance depth of flavour. The curry is made with selectively chosen fresh potatoes, ripe carrots, and sweet onions with combination of Japanese spices for heat. Succulent fried prawns coated with flavorful breadcrumbs for extra crunch. Served with springy ramen and kizami nori, it makes you crave for more!
I love the Teriyaki Chicken & Salmon Combo ($10.90) featuring tender chicken leg that’s grilled to golden perfection topped with secret recipe teriyaki sauce. Pairing heart-healthy pink salmon on a bed of steaming white premium Japanese rice and a colourful mix of vegetables, the set is complete with a miso soup and ice soda.
