Hidden Gem At Ang Mo Kio
Run by a friendly Uncle and Auntie, Tian Tian has been at Chong Boon Food Centre since 1978, before the current owner took over from his dad in 1995. Serving up Fried Beehoon and Fried Maggie Mee as well, all dishes here are offered at prices of $3.50 and $4.50.
Tasty And Unique Char Kway Teow
We decided to go for the $4.50 serving, which came with a mountain of noodles. Delightfully eggy and leaning towards the sweeter side, the noodles are interestingly reminiscent of your Black Carrot Cake. The sweetness however isn’t overpowering, making it a unique version that stands out from the rest. Additionally, there is a pleasant hint of smokiness that blends well with the other flavours while the chilli gives a good kick of spice while balancing out the sweetness.
Topped with crushed, crispy bits of pork lard, they mix with the noodles a lot better compared to your regular-sized pork lard, allowing you to enjoy them more in each bite.
Cooked with lup cheong, fishcake and cockles, the lup cheong is served in thick slices while the cockles are fresh and taste clean. One improvement however would be to increase the portion of ingredients.
