Old Airport Road Hawker Centre

Postby Blobbi » Sat Jan 09, 2010 5:38 pm

Tks to Zack, Way2Go and CKS, I've been going to the Old Airport Road HC for brekkie. Super duper!

Today at 10.30am, as the queue was not so bad, hubby queued up for the super popular Lor Mee (wah, forgot name!). The prawn noodles were already sold out by then but the Lor Mee was verrrry tasty! DH said the Tiong Bahru Lor Mee (on the opp side) was not as tasty but the gravy was not so thick, so he preferred it. I had Whitley Road Hae Mee - the $5 medium prawn were giant, so the $8 bowl of giant prawns must be monster ... DS had nasi lemak.

What are the other super duper stalls there that you guys like? I'm still hoping to have that famous hokkien mee near the toilet :!:. Ayything else??

It's called TP rojak
but it's located in OAR (Old Airport Road) HC.
If u like rojak,
there's a very good one at Dunman HC
further down the road.
Think it's called Lau Hong Ser
Warning:
Queue can be very long at peak hours.
IMHO, this one beats both TP and Hoover rojak.

There are many good makan stalls here
wanton mee,
crab
curry puffs
otak
satay
herbal chicken etc... :drool:

The pasta is quite good for the kids.

Lao Fu Sze char kway teow attracts some crowd
Tried it, but prefer the one at Bedok HC

HCM
He opens only at 11 am and often finishes early by 4+ pm
Best time to go is just after the lunch time crowd.

What's HCM? You mean HoKien Mee?

Yah man, the curry puff - so special!

Which Wanton mee, otak and satay?

We tried the otak from the Nasi Lemak store. The 80cts otak was just studded with prawns. Shiok!

Tks for your expertise again, Way2Go!

Yuh... Toa Payoh Rojak very solid :drool: . The prawn sauce very generous and thick, but rather sweet. Got thick juicy chunks of pineapple and mango. Buay tahan... think must go and buy it now.

But very atas also... must take number and got electronic counter to beep you. No number no talk.

The funny thing is that they have this picture of the cover of a magazine with a model in a Grandis holding a PDA. That Grandis was my car :wink: . Long story. But the auntie still never give me priority everytime I go to order from them leh :( .
