This is Part 3 of 3 series of the food blogs from The Community Service Interest Group (CSIG) in the School of Life Science and Chemical Technology (LSCT) at Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

CSIG aims to encourage students from LSCT to serve the community.  During the pandemic, all volunteers activities with direct physical contact with our elderly residents is suspended.  Hence, the group decided to contribute to our Home with this series, recommending hawker food which  are elderly-friendly.  These are their food adventures at Lorong 8 Toa Payoh Hawker Centre.

Fried Fish Lor Mee

The Fried Fish Lor Mee was a rare find with its relatively affordable price at $3 for a big bowl!

I could have added some chilli, vinegar or garlic to my bowl of Fried Fish Lor Mee to spice up the taste as it was quite bland. The gravy was thick and pretty surfeiting. Noodles had an easy-chew texture. There were 3 pieces of fried fish.  They had a good crunch with no fishy taste, and easy to chew. The portion was sufficient and substantial. I would prefer it to have some greens for nutritional value. Overall, I still enjoyed the bowl of Fired Fish Lor Mee!

Kway Chap

For a single person set, the Kway Chap from Guan Kee Kway Chap #01-24 was affordably priced at $3.50.

The Kway Chap set was loaded with a variety of delicious ingredients such as tender pork belly slices, chewy pork intestines, thin cuts of fish cake, half a boiled egg, pieces of fried tofu and a bowl of rice flour sheets. I was impressed by how flavorful the soup was as well as how soft the flour sheets were.

Overall,  the dish is suitable for everyone as it is easy to chew and affordable. However, due to its high fat and sodium content, this dish should be enjoyed in moderation.

Beef Shank Noodles

The Beef Shank noodles I ordered, at $4 per bowl, had generous amount of beef shank cuts. Other than the dry version which I ordered, there was also the soup version.  There were different types of noodles to choose from, like Kway Teow, Yellow Noodles or Bee Hoon.

The bowl of Dry Beef Shank Noodles was fragrant and flavourful. A bowl of soup was a perfect appetizer. The beef shanks were served in bite-sized, so it was easy to enjoy. The meat was tender as well and the noodles were very soft to chew.
