Hock Sin Kee

This stall moved from the already demolished Margaret Drive Hawker Centre to this food centre after the closure in February 2011. I used to stay in Holland area and always patronised Margaret Drive Food Centre regularly. 

It was an indescribable happiness to see this old signboard once more in its new location. I still recognised the old uncle and old auntie, the stall is solely manned by both of them. I chatted with the auntie for a bit then ordered fried rice and sweet & sour pork to be taken away for dinner at home later. 

This stall offers very old school style tze cha. Simple dishes are offered, cooked and served with a passion.

The fried rice and sweet & sour pork still warm when i gotten home. The fried rice at $4.00 was quite a generous serving. The portion was good enough to be shared amongst 2 adults. It simply stir-fried with bits of char siew, mixed vegetable and prawns. This might not be the best fried rice that i ever tasted but i can taste the amount of love in it. 

The sweet & sour pork were stir-fried with bits of carrots, onions, green pepper and tomato to give it the desired taste. It actually tasted like those dishes that you will get during those old school wedding dinners that used to hold at the void decks of the HDB flats a long time ago. The portion was of a generous portion as well. The pieces of pork were well-fried and mixed nicely with sweet & sour sauce, the sauce has gotten a good balance of sweetness and sourness. It went really went with the fried rice.

It was a very satisfied dinner that left me feeling warm and happy.

If you want a taste of old school style tze cha then you should give it a try before they retired or go missing again. Strongly recommended.
