Maxwell Food Centre on Food Revolution Day

Maxwell Food Centre

I wasn’t interested in the Food Revolution thing and I am not a fan of Jamie Oliver as well, so we decided to a meet up for some hawker food at Maxwell Food Centre instead with Vinleon and Yew Ann (to his disgust), they thought I wasn’t serious about hawker food.


I spotted a newly opened stall named Tong Xin Ju selling Shanghai Dim Sum so I decided to give it a try, the Guo Tie (4.00 SGD for 8 pieces) came out as soon as I ordered it which gave me a bad feeling about it. However, to our relief, it turned out well and I kind of enjoyed the crispy pastry with generous minced pork filling.

We also had a plate of Pineapple Fried Rice from the Senet Issan Thai, the rice itself lacked the pineapple flavour and is basically yellow rice with pineapple cubes, chicken floss and mixed vegetables out of a bag. Thankfully, the rice has a wok hei flavour and the chicken chunks were quite tender.

I also ordered a plate of Rojak (3.50 SGD) to share from a stall that sells rojak, poppiah and cockles. The dressing was quite thick and sweet with a bit of tangy flavour to it. I found the you tiao to be a little too tough but otherwise it was an okay rojak.
