Kimdo BBQ 金都串串烧 @ JB City Square (Malaysia, Johor Bahru)

Lau Shu Fen Noodles (Silver Needle Noodles)
If you are someone who frequently cross the causeway using public transport (i.e. bus), you would likely know about Kimdo BBQ 金都串串烧 . Kimdo BBQ is a small stall located at City Square which you would need to pass if you are entering the mall after clearing the customs. It is popular for its signature BBQ Single Bone Chicken Wing and Lau Shu Fen Noodles (Silver Needle Noodles). Kimdo BBQ as its name suggests is a BBQ specialist. Their stall in City Square is in fact a BBQ expresss stall offering 15 to 20 BBQ items. Their main outlet is located at Taman Sentosa.
Lau Shu Fen Noodles (Silver Needle Noodles)
I heard so much about their Lau Shu Fen Noodles (Silver Needle Noodles) but have never tried it before since its quite troublesome and heavy to pack this back into Singapore. Fortunately, I got an opportunity recently. 

The Lau Shu Fen Noodles (Silver Needle Noodles) was delicious. It was filled with generous serving of ingredients ranging from salted fish, cabbage, mushroom, minced chicken and shallots. The soup was tasty too! 

Kimdo BBQ would among the first few stalls I'll visit. I think the concept of a barbecue pitstop in a shopping mall is pretty unique. You’ll get to choose from about 15 to 20 items for the staff to barbecue on the spot, ranging from the normal fishballs to the broccoli.
Single Bone Chicken Wing, Seafood Tofu, Curry Quail Eggs and Hokkaido Scallops
For the BBQ items, after you have ordered the items, the staff would BBQ them on the spot. Our favourite items are the Single Bone Chicken Wing, Seafood Tofu and Hokkaido Scallops. The chicken wings are unique as they are flat and just have a single bone. It was easy to eat it and the meat was full of smokey fragrance. Their homemade chili complement it perfectly even though it was so spicy. 

This is a stall that I always patronise for their BBQ items whenever I cross the causeway via public transport! If you have not tried this yet, you should!

Serangoon Garden Carrot Cake & Wanton Noodle 菜頭粿雲吞面 (Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre)

While queuing for Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle's Fish Maw Soup Noodles, we noticed that most people who were eating the fish maw soup also had a plate of carrot cake at their table. We realised that the carrot cake was from a stall called Serangoon Garden Carrot Cake & Wanton Noodle, which seems like the only carrot cake stall at the food centre. 

Although the stall also sold wanton noodles, nearly everyone who ordered from this stall ordered their carrot cake. 
White Carrot Cake $3
We ordered the White Carrot Cake which cost $3. Taste wise, it was decent. It  had a crisp texture on the exterior, and was firm and soft on the inside. And I like the fact that it was not overly oily or tasty.

I noticed that most people ordered their Black Carrot Cake. I wonder if that was their more popular dish.

Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle 胜记香菇肉脞面 (Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre)

 Fish Maw Noodles (Soup) $10, Minced Meat Noodles (Dry) $4.50
Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle 胜记香菇肉脞面 is a popular minced meat noodles stall. Its unique selling point is and most popular dish is in fact another dish; Fish Maw (鱼鳔) Noodles. It is indeed surprisingly that a hawker stall would sell fish maw as it is considered a luxury item that is more commonly sold at a restaurant. This stall has been so successful in this dish that most people who patronise the stall would not hesitate to order this dish. 
The stall has been in operation for more than 30 years. It used to be located at Eunos before moving to Changi Road and eventually to its current location at Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre. When we visited this stall on a weekday afternoon at lunch time there was a queue of 8 persons. The queue was slow moving as each dish was cooked individually. This was also one of the few stalls where there was a perpetual queue. 

We ordered the Fish Maw Noodles (Soup) $10 and Minced Meat Noodles (Dry) $4.50. 
 Fish Maw Noodles (Soup) $10
If you are visiting Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle, you have to order their signature Fish Maw Noodles (Soup) $10 since this is a dish that is not available at other hawker centres.
 Fish Maw Noodles (Soup) $10
The Fish Maw Noodles (Soup) $10 was filled with lots of ingredients. There were lean meat, minced meat, pork liver, braised mushrooms, egg, beansprouts and 3 slices of fish maw! They were so generous with the fish maw and braised mushrooms. If you have cooked and ate fish maw at home, you would know that choosing and buying one of good quality is hard and costly. Cooking it is another art of its own. If you buy one of lousy quality you risk making the whole dish fishy. This stall executed the fish maw extremely well. The fish maw was not fishy and did not make the soup tasted fishy! *Claps*  

The soup was robust and tasty with a natural sweetness. Moreover, it had a unique smokey fragrance in it and the bites of dried fish sole enhanced the taste of the soup. No wonder most of their customers ordered the soup based version.
 Minced Meat Noodles (Dry) $4.50
The Minced Meat Noodles (Dry) $4 (also known as Bak Chor Mee) was quite unique as the sauce used was a concoction of dark soya sauce (instead of vinegar), mushroom sauce with chilli. The serving of ingredients was also very generous. There were many slices of lean meat, pork liver and minced meat. There were also lots of beansprouts at the bottom along with fried pork lard and  dried sole fish. What I liked most was the amount of braised mushroom given. Most minced meat noodles stall no longer cook and provide this, even if they do, they would just provide 3 slices. 

If you are at Serangoon Garden Market & Food Centre, do give their Fish Maw Soup Noodles dish a try. Its real good!
