    Chwee kueh #02-43! The kueh was non-sticky and light, paired with chai por that is nicely fried, not drenched in oil. Chilli with hints of shrimp, the dish balances a light base and savory goodness!

    Economical rice with Peranakan twist. Babas Peranakan #02-225 sees long queues even though it's @ an obscure corner. Lots of (spicy) dishes to choose from. Chicken curry is a must

    Chee Cheong Fun (rice rolls). Sold by Shang Hai Chee Cheong Fen. Simple, light snack. Black sauce is sweet, chilli sauce packs a punch. For vegetarians, opt for his turnip or mushroom fillings

    Braised duck rice (or porridge). Run Ji #02-140.Simple serving of traditional staple. Duck meat slices were thick. Operated by friendly elderly lady. So expect old school cuts which incl bone bits :-)

    Very colourful and just right flavours of CNY Yu Sheng ingredients bought from the dried goods / sauces stall at Chinatown Market; but still got to buy and shred own carrots (white / green / orange).

    Emerald Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle @ #02-044: 1 out of 2 stalls where mum likes to da-bao whole chicken back home. Its flavourful & not too saltish, I also like. This stall is slightly cheaper

    Rice porridge. Find diners deep in thought in betw mouthfuls of porridge @ 6am. Tucked in a corner, Tian Tian #02-185 serves the quintessential pork porridge. I like its honest blandness. Fish availab

    Hong Kong Mongkok Dim Sum @ #02-097: Mum's favourite place for fresh & meaty Har Gao, Siew Mai & Char Siew Bao. When she got craving, she would take 1.5hrs bus to & fro to da-bao one box each of those

    Apart from the L2 food centre, do not miss the basement wet market for fresh fish, freshly-made Yong Tau Foo and many more. For the uninitiated, a bit overwhelming but that's part of the fun!

    Ignore overload of tips abt Yue Ping fried pumpkin cakes. It doesn't exist. It's now Chai Chee Cuttlefish (yummy snack!) Examine the phantom contributors in 2011, that's all they spam abt. Fishy :-(

    Local kopi. Make a bee-line for "五十年代", a coffee stall to the left of the escalator as u come up. Kopi was thick, strong & smooth. Saw a bean grinder inside. Presume they grind them fresh ;-)

    Nutritious Soft Liquid Food: Black Sesame Paste. Wholesome dessert good for bone-strengthening and darker hair, but its 'heaty food'. Need to drink cooling stuff after that.

    I think that this is the main Hawker Center in Chinatown. Go here for clay pot rice (which is great) or dessert soups. This is also where I've seen juiced sugar cane.

    Grab a beer over at one of the 4 or 5 craft beer stalls. They're off in a corner, but very worth it. Beef noodle soup is VERY good
