Cavalock Does Something Fishy

When I was a kid, my mom would sometimes make some Bird's-Eye fish fingers for me. Couldn't find any Bird-Eye brand fish fingers at NTUC Fairprice, found this I&J brand instead. Not the best choice, had a very lemony taste to it. Prepared this simple dinner for one a couple of nights ago, with boiled veggies and mashed potatoes. Hope Cold Storage has Bird's-Eye.

Believe it or not, this was only my second time at the popular Old Airport Road food centre. Yah, really, first time was like a few years ago then they closed the place for renovation. Anyway, was there for lunch the other day, totally on impulse, was on the bus and saw that it passed by the place and decided to get off there.

Lots of empty seats during lunch hour. Not becos no one's eating but the place is really huge so there are enough seats for everyone. Figured I'll eat first, explore later. Joined the first Q I saw and its for wanton mee, always a favourite. Best part of my meal were the dumplings, very meaty and full.

Now, check this out, the stall after the next on the right was another wanton mee stall (blue sign). Both stalls have a ton of respective newspaper and TV reviews pasted all over their front stall walls. One had a long Q, the other no Q. But the one without a Q had one of those electronic Q number boards. As a 'first-timer', I'm gonna head to the stall with the long Q, not the stall where no one's seems to be patronizing. Anyway, that's just my theory.

You just reminded me I haven't eaten fish fingers in the longest time. I love this stuff, Bird's Eye is good. I think you can try Cold Storage or Marketplace. Love it with chili sauce.

Longest queue at Old Airport? I think you can try the lor mee... haha the queue is madness!

yah, bird's eye is good. cooking for one can be quite a handfull... by the time, i finished one dish and was preparing the next one, the first dish would be cold. :(

nah, it wasn't the longest Q there, it was the first long Q I saw. saw a few other Qs after my lunch.

Saw Bird's Eye fish fingers in Cold Storage yesterday. There's cod, haddock & salmon. Didn't know they're that expensive.
