Breakfast at Tiong Bahru Market

Macaroni Soup

I went back to Tiong Bahru Market again for breakfast...and in fact, back to that same fish soup lady from yesterday. It wasn't because it was anything special, but rather just because the thought of a light soup for breakfast sounded good. This time I got the macaroni soup though, which - as suspected - couldn't compare to Xin Mei, but at least this didn't require as much travel time.

Chwee Kueh

I was still a bit hungry though, so I picked up some chwee kueh, although this time from the other stall (64, I think?) on the other side. I really don't remember the specifics of Jian Bo's version so it's hard to make a confident comparison, but today's did strike me as a bit more fragrant. I should do a blind taste test one of these days to be fair.

Jian Bo's definitely better because they work sesame seeds into the preserved radish.
