Tiong Bahru Market is a favourite eating place for me. Today, I had lunch there with my family.
The beancurd at Long Ji (Store No. 250) is the best and cheap too. I have brought friends and customers there before as well. Even the customers from Hong Kong are amazed at how good and inexpensive it is. 60c a bowl!
I always make it a point to bring some back to consume later in the day and night. A big container of yummy beancurd for only $1.10! I bought four containers' worth.
The dough fritters are only 70c each. I bought 3 for $2.00. I think the dough fritters at Food Republic are not as nice and they cost 90c each.
The Lor Mee is also famous. There are two Lor Mee stores. This is the corner store next to a washing area. I cannot remember the store number. $2.50 a bowl and it includes fried fish and fried wanton.
Original Tiong Bahru chwee kway (steamed rice cakes?)! I prefer this to Jian Bo chwee kway. The secret of good chwee kway is really in the chye poh (pickled turnip?). Cannot be too oily and too mushed up. This is just nice. Price? A princely sum of $1.
