Malaysia Chiak!

In 2012, F&B conglomerate Fei Siong Group (behind brands Encik Tan, Nam Kee Pau, 85 Rehill Teochew Fishball Noodles, HK Egglet among others) piloted to runaway acclaim Malaysia Boleh! - a 7,000 sq ft food court-esque enclave at Jurong Point that distilled and corralled under one roof the quintessence of street food culture from across the causeway. Five years later it doubled down, adding another 15 hawker stalls on an adjacent 8,000 sq ft shoplot as well as opening sister eatery Malaysia Chiak! at The Centrepoint which peddled similar albeit less exhaustively varied fare. Still, continual crowd-pleasers feature: Penang Road Chendol, Klang Bak Kut Teh, Hainanese Curry Rice, Damansara Chilli Ban Mian, Morgan Mee Rebus, Kuantan Nasi Lemak, etc.

Malaysia Boleh! currently has three locations islandwide; Malaysia Chiak! has seven.

Malaysia Chiak! @ Great World City

What knocked our socks off:

The claypot rice was assertively flavoured, what with earthy aromas subsumed into soft fluffy grains and a bountiful medley of sesame oil-spritzed chicken chunks, salted fish, Chinese sausage slices letting savory umami run riot. Do however be prepared to wait for around 20-25 min whilst tending kitchen hands ensure your order(s) simmer to hot, delicious perfection.

Petaling Street Famous Clay Pot Rice ($5)

The mee rebus reeled us in equally: firm yellow noodles drenched in a warm molten gravy (then chaperoned by beancurd cubes, sliced green chilli, hard-boiled egg plus fried shallots) imparted sharply delineated curryish tones, yet also allowed an ensuing sweetness to permeate unencumbered.

Morgan Mee Rebus ($3)

A third dish that passed muster was the chilli ban mian: fulsome, chewy wheat ribbons consonant with minced meat paste vibing grippy, fibrillose black mushrooms cum crispy anchovies, of course not forgetting one custardy onsen egg plopped right on top (note though its chilli didn't pummel tastebuds nearly enough).

Damasara Chilli Ban Mian ($4.50)

Other items sampled but turned out to be non-events:

Popiah ($2)

Kuantan Nasi Lemak ($3.50)

Penang Road Chendol ($2)

85 Bedok North Fried Oyster

Helmed by former seafood restaurant chef Ng Soon Huat, 85 Bedok North Fried Oyster (勿洛北85蚝煎) began life 18 years ago at then already thriving east side supper haunt Fengshan Food Centre, expanding over time to lease adjoining stalls that most fortunately command prominent street frontage (it has since further enacted satellite presences in Hougang, Kovan and Sengkang).......

Chong Pang Huat

Satay sellers are a dime a dozen in Singapore since forever, with most just eking out hushed, microscopic existences across generations. Chong Pang Huat's decade-old franchise network of unfamilial shake 'n bake outlets is therefore somewhat an anomaly; still we'd heard largely good things despite never having gotten around to tasting their fare. Until a recent fortuitous late evening that is,......
