Foodies Tour
We went on a food tour searching for the much anticipated Michelin Bib Gourmand 2016 stalls that could be found in Amoy Food Centre, and tried also to fill our tummies with other delicious food there.

A Noodle Story #01-39
The much hyped Singapore-styled ramen has to been given the thumbs up for it's creativity I am sure. There was a short queue even slightly before it's official opening at 11am and thereafter, shortly a long queue follow suits after. 
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 11am - 230pm, 330pm - 730pm
                         Closed on Weekends and PHs

Basically thin noodles aka mee kia was the carbo base topped with traditional wanton, hot spring egg, cha su ( akin to thick fat belly meat) , crispy potato wrapped prawn. The presentation looked really appetizing and appeal. 
Well, have to say taste wise it did not really lived up to the expectation. Basically it was really dry mee kia similar to the versions you would get in Bak Chor Mee or Wanton Mee. The noodle was in one lump and we have to loosen up to mix well with the dark sauce. The chili paste might have saved it from being a un interesting bowl of noodles. 
Ingredients wise, it was really ordinary and nothing to shout about.  For a bowl of $7 this was not exactly worthy and we do not think there will be a 2nd try. Good creativity but didn't cut for it's taste. 

Small $5,90 Medium $7,20 
(I was looking at prices from past reviews and it seemed like the original $6 pricing has risen quite some dollars since 2015? )

Yuan Chun Famous Lor Mee #02-80

Banking on it's reputation, we tried out the lor mee, but the gravy was a bit too watery and the taste too bland even after vinegar and minced garlic were mixed in. Unfortunately nothing could heighten the flavorful lor mee that we were looking for and there are, indeed better lor mee stalls around Singapore. 
$4 per bowl ( "with ingredients" as was stated)

Crispy Curry Puff #01-21
Also mentioned in the honorary list of Michelin Bib Gourmand Hawker stalls this year, we love the puff was it's crispy layered pastry flakes and spicy curry potato. 
A joy to indulge with. 
Comes in flavors like black pepper chicken, sardine or yam paste.
$1.20 each

Coffee Break #02-78
Coffee Break was recently featured in The Straits Times for being a stall that's now helmed by the 2nd generation and sees a revamp in their menu and offerings in catering to the working adult crowd in Amoy area.  We were pleasantly surprised to find a variety of newbie offerings such as different "new-age" flavors of latte and mocha, in the likes of black sesame, butter pecan, hazelnut, sea salt caramel and the list goes on. 
Priced competitively at $3,80, they are indeed cheaper than the next door cafes offering a latte in that district and with so many interesting flavors it's no wonder they are a hit.

Finally satisfied
We had the Sea Salt Caramel Latte ( Hot and Cold) with the Earl Grey Creme toast at $3.00 ala-carte. 
This was perhaps our most satisfied deal for the meal. Toast was crispy thin and spread with sweet earl grey flavored creme. Sea Salt caramel was awesome as the saltiness and sweetness were pleasantly distinctive. The hot version had a stronger punch and less diluted as compared with the cold version.
