    Ooooooohhhhhhhhh... this is my fav fav! I am Hakka so mebbe that's why? Hee Anyway, i get my fix at Boon Lay Shopping Centre the big foodcourt outside. $2.50 onli. Great value for money!! Mmmm The bad thing is it's onli open during the day (cater for breakfast & lunch) & sold out darn fast!! SOmetimes, by lunchtime, it's already finished! I heard there's one at Jurong East Central but not very sure exactly where it is. Would really appreciate if fellow cotters can recommend more places for this!!

    Btw dodo, where exactly at Raffles Place? TIA!

              in short, it is herbs, rice and stock and peanuts and stuff mixed up
              very tasty

              not a common dish though, only seen in singapore in recent years!

                I guess it's an acquired taste. It's kinda 'greenish' taste & u might not like it if you do not like minty & herb-ish taste. At first, i didn't like it but the more you eat it, the more you will fall in love with it! My mom makes a mean lei cha fan!! Done the authentic way.. the tea leaves are ground using a guava tree branch for the 'authentic' taste! Sigh.. But a lot of work coz have to cut & chop a lot of vege & fry individually. Better just go out & get my fix.. but of coz not as good as homemade! Hee

                    They are different types (clans) of Hakka.. For example Ta Pu ke, Her Po ke etc.

                    Lei Cha is mostly eaten by Her po.. Thats why not many hakkas know what is Lei Cha unless they are 'her po ke'

                    The best lei cha i have eaten is made by my grandma. And my aunties cook really fabulous lei cha~ Yummy!! It's healthy and delicious!

                    So far never fancy those lei cha in Singapore. I think in JB ones are more authentic, thus better.

                      hehe i fancy my grandma made Lei Cha too, but sadly she has passed away. peekaboo, there's 1 at jurong west but i don't remember the street. Not sure whether do you know the post office just opposite the community centre there? there's this 1 POSB atm right outside the bus stop and they sell lei cha there... not too sure whether its nice though cause i haven't tried it

                        Hi girl, thanks for the tip off! I think i can roughly get an idea where u r talking about. Is it Jurong West Ave 1.. that area ppl usually call Hong Kah? The corner foodcourt right opposite OCBC? Didn't know there's one there coz i stay at the new extension area. But if there's a lei cha fan there, i can foresee myself going there very often soon!! Hehe

                        Would appreciate it can give more info such as block number, coffeeshop name, etc.. thanks girl so muchy!

                            I am Hakka too. But my dad has never heard of lei cha fan, only lei cha (though he thinks it's too scary to drink) Have to say that neither of us are particularly fond of Hakka food in general!
