Little India Singapore Part II

 Hmm.. had to go back Little India again today since mom wants to exchange the pants that she bought yesterday. Took the opportunity to take a few more photographs of the Tekka Centre / Tekka Market, though it's a bit more difficult today with my two boys tagging along.

Delicious looking grapes and pomelos

Found some interesting vegetables and delicious looking fruits at the market section and tried a few different stalls at the hawker center today :)

This time around, I decided to try the stalls at the center of the hawker center, beside the square clearing as I needed to buy prata for my son and there seemed to be people queuing at a prata shop there (typical Singapoeran mind, if there's a queue for it, t must be good :p ) The mee kuah (noodles in bright red gravy with some slices of meat, potatoes and egg) at the stall besides it looks appetising, so I ordered that for myself, all the while glancing at other people's plate of Indian Rojak (seems to be quite popular there) and Yakader Dum Bryani.. I decided to resist, after all, how much can my mum, my two sons and I finish? 

Ar-Rahman Royal Prata

The crispy prata
 Turns out the prata was not a bad choice, it was light and crispy and the accompanying dhal was nice too, a Japanese lady in front of me ordered Murtabak and her Muratabak looked light and fluffy, very enticing.

Jalan West Coast Stall, where I bought my Mee Kuah

Mee Kuah

My Mee Kuah's gravy tasted delicious, but I feel that the beef slices was too little, it also comes with potatoes, one egg and a few bits of peas.

YaKader Dum Bryani
Mmmm mmmm.. hubby's favorite, the queue was non-stop.

As usual, my teh tarik fix, though this time from another stall nearby, I like today's one better, the tea strength is just right, though I should have told them that I prefer my teh tarik less sweet.

All in all, it was a nice day spent with my mom and my boys.
