Drove out for lunch with a friend to Syed Alwi for Teochew kway teow mee and a bowl of fish dumplings.
As usual, I got lost and went here, there and all over before I found the place (I can picture my husband’s contorted face had he been in the car). I checked the street directory before I drove off, I swear! I think I should add a GPS system to my 2011 wish list.
Flavour of the noodles is nowhere as good as our favourite haunt in Simpang Bedok but the chilli is quite yummy. Not the fiery spicy sort but has a texture like heybi hiam. Wouldn’t mind buying a bottle to eat with plain rice, if only they sold it on its own.
Then we went to Mirabelle to buy charcoal buns, chocolate croissants, scones and tuilles.
