Decided I was tired of eating in town, so met my friends at Thomson instead. Thomsons transforming into a very lively stretch with lots of eateries and at least FIVE ice cream shops.
Chicken Macaroni soup in the foreground ($5.90). Simple home-cooked food. Macaroni with chicken shreds, carrot slices, quail eggs and a tasty soup.
Curry Chicken with rice ($8.90). The owner recommended Mee Siam and this, which says something about its popularity. The curry here is homemade by grinding spices, no curry powder in this. DEDICATION!
Mee Siam ($5.50). You can get these foods at hawker centers for lower prices, but you can be sure there are no preservatives in your food, which is surely a consoling thought! Gravy was sweet and thick. I personally like my Mee Siam a little sour and lighter, but this definitely is made with 100% heart!
Really home-y place to be, especially of you’re from the 1980s/1990s generation. We sat there and played Happy Family (the ancient card game) and it brings back fond memories of childhood 🙂
