Please be patient with Famous Seng Heng Family Restaurant Pork Ribs Prawn Noodles as stall is managed by an uncle with a one-man operation.

Uncle has simplified the menu to just two so that it is easier and cost-effective to manage alone.
For $5, you get generous amount of ingredients with four prawns, pork ribs, a mountain of noodles, fish cakes slices, sprouts and vegetables. Pork ribs were well cooked, tender and you can peel off the flesh easily from the bone. Prawns were fresh and juicy. Soup was thick, savory and flavorful, and not too salty. Fantastic!

Guang Tai Lor Mee
Although it may appear like a disaster to eat a bowl of messy Lor Mee, but this Hokkien dish, especially at Guang Tai, is usually bursts with savory, hearty flavors and is a joy to slurp up. There are many places in Singapore that sell this goopy noodle dish, but not all of them are up to par in terms of flavor and taste as compared to Guang Tai Lor Mee. Stall is managed by one auntie, who opens stall as early as 6am in the morning to handle all the food and preparation alone.
Guang Tai served a very traditional style Lor Mee at $3.50 with generous chunks of Pork Belly, Ngoh Hiang and half egg as main ingredients. The bowl was filled to the top with thick yellow noodle and ingredients that were soaked in a nice and fragrant starchy brown gravy. The Starchy gravy was not too thick and complement well with the noodles and ingredients. Do remember to top up extra garlic, black vinegar, chili sauce, cut chili to your delight.
