Food Finds at Changi Village Hawker Centre x Singapore Airshow 2020 – 16 Feb 2020

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now, you’ll kinda realize that Bear’s been bringing around to explore new places over the weekend as we slowly tick off new experiences together.

After all, he’s #BearTheExplorer while I’m this hermit at home; and occasional Wanderess (#HermitxWanderess).

Sidenote: I still prefer hermit mode though 😂

That aside, we were out for lunch on this day to check out Changi Village Hawker Centre!

Tip: come here with an empty stomach or with friends/family to be able to enjoy more food together from the plethora of hawker stalls here!

Here’s a rundown of what we tried/ate here.

Changi Famous Nasi Lemak

This is definitely one of the rare few times where I actually queue for food but also because all the famous nasi lemak places here have a never ending queue. Bear said this was the better version so let’s try it!

Personally, the rice was not lemak enough imo, chicken was dry though crispy on the outside. Otah was not bad and we enjoyed the chilli. Otherwise, I thought it was just okay overall. Would love to try the other stalls in the future for comparison such as the Mizzy’s Corner (also super long queue) and the famous and highly raved International nasi lemak which is rarely open.

Rating: 3 / 5

Ho Guan Satay Bee Hoon

We saw quite a number of reviews online with regards to Ho Guan Satay Bee Hoon and Bear wanted to try to see if it was good cos it may not be easy finding really good ones in Singapore.

To be frank, it was my first time eating satay beehoon and their rendition is not bad. I know it looks as if there’s a lot of satay gravy but the beehoon etc soaks it up too fast so my only gripe here is that there’s too little sauce LOL. 🤣 Bear said he would return with his parent next time!

Rating: 3.5 / 5

Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang

I’m quite alright with goreng Pisang though I never had many that really impressed me – until I tried Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang!

It’s the next level, perfectly fried with the right amount of batter and banana ratio and the banana is big and of good quality. Worth it to top up for the bigger piece of banana for $1.50, I’m really impressed with it. Will be back!

Mei Lin Leng Re Yin Pin

A visit to Changi Village Hawker won’t be complete without having their famous Commando dessert aka logan de red tea jelly / Red Tea Logan from the original dessert stall, Mei Lin Leng Re Yin Pin. This stall is hidden inside, and its not the copycat located on the outer-lier of the hawker centre.

Nothing pretentious but just shaved ice with the red tea syrup, red jelly and logans. Very refreshing and cooling to enjoy on a warm day like this. The red tea taste is also surprisingly quite strong.

You can also get an ice kachang for $2 and an avocado dessert for only $2.50 which is super worth it!

Rating: 3.5 / 5

Pineapple Juice

You rarely see pineapple juices in hawker centres nowadays and it was my first time seeing it! For a mere $1, you get a nice big cup of pineapple juice with ice and cut pieces of fresh pineapple cubes at the bottom. Refreshing and well worth it.

Rating: 3.5 / 5 + 0.5 for value (4 / 5)

On the whole, we will definitely be back here again to try out the other stalls (show some love to the other stalls, other than the famous ones!) to find more gems.

Oh yes, one other purpose of coming to Changi Village for lunch on this day was to see if we could catch any aerial displays from the Singapore Airshow 2020 from Changi Beach (for free)!

In the end, we managed to watch some of the performances while we were at the hawker centre without heading down to the beach area.

It was hot but luckily we managed to find some shade to at least protect ourselves from the harmful rays of the sun.

Nonetheless, it was well worth it considering that the air show only occurs every two years! 🙂 Bonus? It was free lol.

What I can’t believe later on is that I still had stomach for dinner 😂 Simple and light homecooked fare before ending off with a shared dessert of beancurd sprinkled with chia seeds 🙂

We also embarked on our first DIY project together on this day and fingers crossed it will turn out well after!

And that’s it for this post and the end of #weekendswithmitsueki (for this week at least!).

More importantly, thanks for BEAR-ing with me and reading all the way till here 🙂
