Apart from Katong Laksa, mee pok was introduced to me by my sister when I was in Singapore late last year. Since then, it has been my usual breakfast / brunch whenever I’m in Singapore.
Around my area (in Singapore), there are 3 stalls that are famous for its mee pok and one of them is Lau Lim which located along Jalan Tua Kong.
With gracious amount of toppings such as fish cakes, fish balls and minced pork meat, this bowl of goodness costs at SGD$3.50 – for a small portion.
Tossed in pork lard and chili oil, the noodles were springy and slight crunchy. The amount of chili oil in it was adequate to give a slight kick to spice up one’s appetite.
Although it’s a lil farther – distance wise, I wouldn’t mind going back again as this stall wasn’t as packed as the other two (stalls) and the staff was friendly at all times.

It was my last day in Singapore and with few hours to spare, I followed my sister to the city to run some errands before going to the airport. Given an hour or so, I was left alone strolling around along Orchard Road.
And that’s when I stumbled upon Watami, a Japanese restaurant which sounded really familiar to me, when I was bumming around lost inside Ion Orchard. It took me quite awhile to recall as I remembered I read about this Japanese restaurant from somewhere.
Thinking it would be good to grab a quick bite before my flight, off I went inside without a second thought – since the review I read about this restaurant was good. A quick flip through their menu, I set upon and ordered two items…
First up was Wafu Hitokuchi Steak. Lightly seasoned bite-size steaks were cooked to perfection, retaining its flavour inside while remained tender and juicy. Pardon me for the poor photo quality though.
The second dish was Salmon Splendour. It’s a bit of everything – 3 types to be exact – that consist of salmon.
There weren’t any complaints as the salmon was fresh and the remaining two were kept simple and nice.
Pride as the Japanese casual restaurant, I guess they did it nicely as the price was alright for the food they serve. Not only the staffs were friendly, the waiting time was reasonable – although it wasn’t fair to judge as I went there pretty late afternoon hours (off peak).
