Blk 16 Bedok South Road Hawker Centre

Came all the way to this hawker centre to try the famous Hill Street Char Kway Teow... unfortunately, it was closed. Note : the stall's operating hours are 11am-7pm. I've heard its really good, and it's also one of the stalls featured on the TV show "Makan Places - Lost and Found". Definitely want to come back here another time to try it...

We decided to eat here anyway... we had Black Carrot Cake, Fried Oyster Omelette and Penang Char Kway Teow - ordered from a stall opposite the Hill Street Char Kway Teow stall, and Chicken Satay from a nearby stall... some of my favourite hawker dishes of all time :)

Nothing spectacular about the food we had... and it brings to mind the article in Life! section last Sunday about how the quality of food in Singapore is deteriorating despite us being a 'food paradise'. Totally agree - besides some exceptional hawker stalls, most of the food tends to be incredibly generic... carrot cake from a hawker stall in ang mo kio pretty much tastes the same as carrot cake from bedok. Especially for things like satay - have a feeling that most places get the satay from the same supplier as it seems to taste the same everywhere you go...

Not that the food is bad... just generic. Well, can't complain - even though it doesn't taste fantastic but I can still get to eat all this anytime I want. Sorry all you guys overseas, I just had to rub it in :P
