The morning queue turns round the corridor, into the lift lobby of Taman Jurong Market Food Centre, and everyone waits patiently for the fried vermicelli and noodle that runs out fast. Another item that got cleared out but not be replenished is the steamed yam cake.
After many visits, we know we'll always miss out on something no matter what time we come - cos by the time we got to the head of the queue, something is sure to be sold out. Given their many food options, we grabbed what were available - warm gluey porridge (not in picture) and chewy sticky rice is clearly the understated here.
Be prepared however, to be snubbed if you prefer your noodles plain, like ours. Without topping up your plate with sides like luncheon meat, ngoh hiang or fried chicken wings - the hawker actually holds on to your order and said things like, "Must add at least 1 ingredient." Or you may just be given a darkened face for the morning.
