It was a lazy weekend when Mmy and I (well mostly me) decided to visit mall since we were so near it; it is just right outside the entrance of the Bedok MRT Station (How’s that for convenience? ^^). So into the mall we went… and we were disorientated with the layout. While exploring the lower levels that already had shops and food establishments lined up we stumbled upon Tim Ho Wan. I have only been to Tim Ho Wan once before at Plaza Singapura with LuttiSparrow & .Co, so it was a delight to have found another outlet.

Since there was hardly a queue and not too many people (as the first time), we decided to give this outlet a try. Service was fast and prompt, food was served hot and it was the usual chaos of people chatting and munching, while some trying to get the attention of the waiters to take down their orders. There was orderly (structured) chaos as people were ushered in and seated, with orders and food being taken down and served all at the same time. With the seats closely placed, it might be uncomfortable for some to have their conversations be overheard by others or hearing the latest gossip from the table next door.
Anyways, the foods that we ordered were:
BBQ Pork Bun (Signature Dish!!) @ S$3.00
Prawn Dumpling (a.k.a Hakau) @ S$5.50
|These were a simple delight: translucent, chewy and moist skin enveloping juicy fresh pieces of prawn.|
Vermicelli Roll (Chee Cheong Fun) with Shrimp filling @ S$5.50
|The shrimp was fresh, juicy and succulent, and the skin enveloping was nice. That said, the skin was not as smooth as the one I had at the Singapora Plaza outlet.|
Rice (Chicken and Sausage) @ S$6.00
|Same as the first time I ate this. Essentially chicken and Chinese sausage (with a mushroom or two) with rice. This would be recommended for the hungry souls as it is quite filling and flavorful.|
Fried Beancurd Roll @ $5.50
|These were a crispy, not-too-greasy, delight.|
It was also my first time ordering take away, and apparently you would have to pack the food yourself (into those Styrofoam boxes). But (apparently) they were nice to me that day and decided to hand me a plastic bag with a Styrofoam box already packed with those delicious BBQ Pork Buns (and quickly ushered us to the counter or payment – courteously off course)!
