In my never ending quest to find delicious authentic hawker food I was fortunate enough to meet someone at the local dog park who is also a foodie and recommended Spice Express in Melville. Well, of course as a dutiful Singaporean Chinese daughter, I took my parents out for lunch there.
I have to say we were more than pleasantly satisfied and satiated. Spice Express is a little take away place with some basic chairs and tables, where customers are likely to share a table. To be honest I’m not overly fussed on the aesthetics or decor of a place, as long as the food is authentic and has the perfect aroma then I’m happy and so are my taste buds.
We shared 4 dishes :
Fried Chicken Wings
..and of course my parents had their “kopi su su ” …or otherwise known as Singaporean style milk coffee with condensed milk …mmm..I love condensed milk!!
All of this only cost us about $34. Right price 😉
The owners were from Singapore and obviously understood how food should taste. Hence, the authenticity.
So, If you ever have a craving for this style of cuisine I’d highly recommend it. You know I may even take my “egg” Polish/Croatian girlfriend out for lunch there. I would definitely score a lot of brownie points if I did!
