Takeaway mixed veg rice from Ah Xi Prawn Crackers
Here's an old shiny rock (#01-83 Beo Crescent Market & Food Centre, 38A Beo Crescent,). Not the shiniest of the lot but a gem nonetheless. Which actually means something in an era where there are a million claimants to hidden gems who do not even understand what's a gem. Or even comprehend the word 'hidden'.
It's an unglamorous frills free and down to earth mixed vegetable rice stall run by an old local gentleman who likely serves more hungry people daily than any - any Michelin starred restaurant in the world at a cost that does not even amount to half the service charge for a restaurant we pay for these days. Here's what $3 buys in a foam box of comfort food. Tasty, satisfying and as local as it gets here.
