Cambridge Forum International Food Court, 6014

This Wembley food court is an ol' faithful for food urgencies among locals. There's no food in your house, you don't want too spend much money and you want to eat now. Cambridge Forum food court is cheap, open most nights a week, has choice and is BYO. Most food courts are generally parcel of a larger shopping complex, where business is owed to shoppers in the right place at the right time. Cambridge Forum brings customers without the help of nearby stores. People visit for the food court fair alone.

It’s not all gravy though – the carvery and Japanese aren’t super great. But that’s ok, it wouldn’t be an authentic food court without the bad stalls too. The best is probably the Singaporean – famous for their Char Kuey Teow. Flat rice noodles stir-fried with shrimp, tender strips of chicken, omelette egg, bean sprouts, onion and chives in a mix of soy sauce. I have not eaten a truckload of Char Kuey Teow in my time but a plate of this stuff is too more-ish to savor. Delicate ribbon like noodles tossed with a bundle of chunky fresh prawns, combined with the salty soya sauce and a tinge of aromatic sourness…ideal comfort food.

Stir fried vegies
Char Kuey Teow $10.50
A plate of the Char Kuey Teow will set you back $10.50 here. We also knocked back a bowl of stir fried vegetables which came to under $10. These were tastier than they sound. I could eat a bowl of the veggies and be satisfied. If you don't feel like noodles, the dim sum place is also pretty good.

Dim Sum

Food: 4/5 (For the Singaporean Char Kuey Teow! Seriously better than tasty and not too oily, generous on the seafood)
Ambience: 2/5 (Its still a food court)
Service: 4/5 (Super fast, buzzer system)
Value: 5/5 (good size and freshness for what you pay)
