坤记, Koon Kee Seafood

Squids, Prawns, White Clams and Chinese Mussels (displayed at stall counter)

Don't we all love Veterans? Veteran cook, veteran artist, veteran seamstress; the only good thing about aging is the wealth of experience and skills that come along with it.

We know of this old uncle at 79, Telok Blangah Drive Food Centre, #01-22 who despite his advance in age, insist on operating his little seafood cook stall with fresh ingredients bought from the market every morning!

What's on menu for the day depends on the type of seafood he succeed in obtaining that morning; but one thing's for sure - the Seafood Hokkien Mee.

Hokkien Seafood Noodle ($4, less seafood option for $3 available)

As i took picture of his seafood, the uncle said shyly, "Today's prawns a little small sized." But i didn't mind, for that's a lot of seafood for the modest price. You wouldn't too, especially after tasting the freshness of his sea products.

They were so... good! So fresh! And sweet! Oh!

And i was definitely surprised that Ric, who has rather weak stomach, took in the shellfish greedily. While the seafood came fresh, it took meticulous effort to ensure they were properly clean for consumption. And the old hawker manages to maintain a good level of hygiene all by himself, at the stall.

We are proud to recommend this food joint.
