Food Diary: Adam Road Food Centre (Singapore)

I'm embarrassed to post the hour at which we ate... Late night supper!  I'm currently compiling a "Singapore Eats" list and want to get it posted by next week.  There are a bunch of places I still need to revisit for better photos or a re-taste to double check my choice.  There are only so many meals in a day, so lately there have been a number of extra visits late into the night.  The things I'm starting to do for this site.  Ridiculous.

Unfortunately, the nasi lemak stall I was looking for wasn't even open!  ARGH.
So to console my poor self, I ate something else.  :)

Noo Cheng Adam Road Prawn Noodles: I'm a noodle kind of girl.  I tried Noo Cheng's prawn noodles two weeks ago.  It was good, but definitely not the best I've had in Singapore.  Adam Road seems to be better for Malay food than anything else, but I wasn't in the mood for it.

I had the pork rib noodles, this time with rice noodles (SGD$3).  I could not be bothered with peeling otherwise mediocre prawns.

Coupled with teh tarik (unfortunately, I forget the stall name)

Tek Kee Hot & Cold Desserts: Disgusting pigs we are, we even finished off with a late night dessert.  But I felt less guilty once I noticed that there was a constant lineup of 4-5 people in front of this stall at 1am.  Fellow oinkers.

My first ching teng.  The numerous press articles posted on the stall highlighted their ching teng and its relative cheapness compared to other stalls.  Still, even at SGD$1.50, it's really just a bowl of shaved ice.  Nice profit margins, I imagine.

It's much more simple and modest than other versions of shaved iced I've had (usually drowned in condensed milk, corn, jelly and other goodies).  Still, I enjoyed the bits of dried longan, ginko nuts, clear jelly, and rock sugar flavors.  Looks like I'll have to add ching teng to my Singapore hunting list.
