Chee Cheong Fan - 2 rolls/piece @ S$1.50
This is the traditional Chee Cheong Fun that served with red sweet sauce, sesame oil with toasted sesame seeds sprinkle on it, a popular breakfast item especially in the past.
I prefer the red sweet sauce then the black sweet sauce. I remember in the late 70s, simple Fried Rice Vermicelli with just Bean Sprout, dazzle with this red sauce and chilli sauce. Super simple but simply delicious. Guess, these are the food of the past generations, the younger generations prefer something else …
In fact, I wanted to order a combination of Yam Cake (S$1) and Chee Cheong Fun (S$1) served in this red sweet sauce and chilli sauce. But they don’t have Yam Cake on that day, no luck. This is from a traditional vegetarian stall in Marsiling Food Centre which has been in operation since 1990s or maybe even earlier, and there is always a LONG queue. And Cheong Cheong Fun is a POPULAR item there.
Is it that fantastic? Well, it is delicious but not to the Fantastic level yet but so much better than most of the stalls that selling this item and it is veg*n version. They get their supply from the factory. It is smooth but not so soft and silky smooth like the Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun which is make on the spot which is really soft, slippery (veg*n version is hard to find) and filled with mushroom or other ingredients.
The sauce is nice and the cost is very reasonable. And it is served in a black square plate, it just look so stylish and make you yearn to order it. It is rare to find a Hawker Vegetarian Stall using so stylish crockery … Wow!
If you don’t like sweet sauce, request to have just oil and soy sauce, it is not a problem at all. Their Yam Cake is yummy too, based on my memory, it has much more yam bites, it is soft compare and fresh … But it is just too far to go …
