Local breakfast packed from Bukit Timah Food Centre

Last Sunday around noon, our youngest sis flew back to London. Just before she flew back, it was her last breakfast here. A few days ago she still had a short list of things yet to try.

After church, we walked over to Bukit Timah Food Centre and packed breakfast home. Here's some of the things we bought that was on her list.

Here's the Chwee Kueh that she wanted to eat. We bought 2 packs of 6 pieces at $1.50 each.

It's such a comfort food ya? Warm, soft yet firm steamed rice cakes. Topped with chai por that is so fragrant and yet not so salty. Add a bit of chilli. Oooo.... Satisfaction.

It's carbo and more carbo. Made also from rice flour and radish. Chai Tow Kueh. We know sis don't like the black version, so we queued up for the 'white' version. There are I think 3 or 4 stalls of CTK at Bukit Timah FC, we like this particular stall where our family thinks is the best. (Main staircase up, the 2nd aisle I think, I recognize the stall, but not the exact location.)

Another dish with Chai Por! The crispy eggs and skin on the outside, soft in the inside. We like it like that! We ordered a $4 and it was such a big pack.

We also had 'Ngor Hiong'. This mix of various fried stuff and century egg is my other sis fav. Yup, she queued up for this. We had 3 packs of bee hoon to share. $15

What a full breakfast we had.
Any of the above is your favourite comfort food too?
