17th August 2013.
It was my first time visiting Upper Boon Keng Road Market and Food Centre due to another site visit around Kallang.
It is a nice and quaint place (maybe because we visited it slightly off lunch hours). The place wasn’t too crowded and quite a number elderly residents hanging around for beers or a chat.
Freshly baked bread from the ovens of Boon Keng Bread. Their Yam Bun was pretty good.
Penang Fried Char Kway Teow. Not too bad and very affordable. The prawns were fresh and the noodles have a nice smoky flavour. However, I find it a little dry but considering its about 3 dollars for a large serving, it’s really cheap.
The best dish I had here with my friend is the Chicken Biryani from the Roti Prata House. The rice was perfectly cooked and very fragrant and I the accompanying lamb curry was excellent.
The chicken was not bad as well, with a beautiful crispy skin and juicy flesh.
