Leng Kee Beef Kway Teow, East Coast Park

I have been patronising Leng Kee Beef Kway Teow, at the East Coast Park Lagoon Food Centre, for some years now. The soup, which is like a consomme, is clear and light, but sweet and full of beefy goodness. You don't get to customise your order much... you can only choose the serving size (SGD4 or SGD5) and the type of beef (meat only; or a mixture of meat and internal parts). The 70-year-old uncle who runs the stall is fierce and brusque but that has not deterred customers from queueing up for 45 minutes or more to get their fix. This is just a fraction of the very loooong queue that had already formed at 5.50 pm.

I like a mixture of meat and other parts including tripe. It's more interesting.

After dinner we strolled around East Coast Park and watched the wakeboarders being towed round and round the man-made lagoon by motorised pulleys on elevated cables. Costs SGD42 per hour on weekends. It looks thrilling but I think I am too chicken to try though!
