Famous JB101 Firewokz @ Bukit Batok Tower

We took 40 minutes to locate this place even we were just inches away from the place, we went to other two nearby buildings before we managed to locate the place. GPS never seems to be helpful so before we talk about the food, let us orientate you the way to go before you lost like “sotong”.

For driving, look for WCEGA Plaza, at the carpark entrance, do not go straight into WCEGA Plaza carpark but turn right to another carpark entrance that lead you to WCEGA Tower. There is not clear sign to show you the way and you could easily miss the turn. At the carpark, take the lift to level 2 and the stall is just right next to the famous Kay Lee roast meat joint stall.

Famous JB101 Firewokz operates from a open air food court right at the centre of the building, there is patio umbrella for every table to shade from sun and rain, so you can eat at peace and don’t worry too much for the weather.

Ones probably can deduce from the name JB101 is a taste coming across the causeway. Offering cheap and decent zi char food for the workers working around the areas.

White Bee Hoon $4/5/6

You can’t expect the same high standard as of Sembawang While Bee Hoon, JB101 white bee hoon gives you the basic flavour and taste. A healthier choice for you.

San Lao Hor Fun $5

famous jb101 firewokz 6

Cooked with generous portion of Snakehead fish slices, the noodle was done with a light touch and little charred flavour, perfect for the health conscious folks.

Hokkien Fried Noodle $4

The KL type of Hokkien fried noodle, thick noodle similar to udon fried with the dark sauce, we are not a big fan of KL style Hokkien noodle but amongst the three noodles we tried, the Hokkien fried noodle apparently the best.

Bittergourd with Black Bean Sauce Chicken $10/15/20

Diced chicken fried with black bean sauce and bittergourd, the slight peppery sauce was succulent in taste and the inclusion of Bittergourd could never more than a perfect pair to win your heart over.

Mongolian Spare Ribs $10/15/20

The ribs was cooked with mild spicy sauce which is unique, meat was tender and the spicy sauce able to lift up the overall taste.

Claypot Beancurd $8/12

famous jb101 firewokz 7

Plenty of veggies cooked with tofu and seafood in the claypot. Taste was simple with the heavy reliance from the seafood and veggies to provide the needed sweetness. It seems like a common practice here with the emphasis in natural seasoning which make ones less guilt on what to wolf down the oesophagus.

Assam Fish Head $20/22

famous jb101 firewokz 10

Not yet introduced on the menu but the Assam fishhead was umami at the first bite. The fish head was as fresh as the sea intended, the ravishingly beautiful assam gravy doused over the fish added the sweet-savoury-sour delightful flavour, appetizing dish that worth the try.

Sambal Prawn $16/20/30

famous jb101 firewokz 3

The hei bee or dried shrimp was distinct within the sambal sauce, it helped to elevate the sambal sauce a step further allowing the flavours to mellow out and developed into a full stimulate taste.

Our verdict:

The location may pose some challenges to locate the stall, however, Famous JB101 Firewokz @ Bukit Batok Tower provides decent zi char at the reasonable price can still be a good attraction to those working nearby and the residents.
