A premium version but it's darn good! Loved the wagyu beef slices (and they were generous with portion too!), plus the gooey sauce that stayed that way until the bowl's finished. None of that stuff that turns watery halfway through.

Generous portion of oxtail with awesomely rich gravy. Carrot, celery and potatoes to balance it out. Reservations recommended. Limited parking in a nearby hdb estate.

I first heard about "British Hainan" from John, a software engineer at Burpple. Then, coincidentally, my parents asked me to join them when they decided to go there for lunch. That's how I discovered this quaint and homely restaurant located in a corner shophouse in Joo Chiat.
Its interior is filled wall to wall with the friendly owner Mr. Puah's collection of genuine vintage paraphernalia and antique curios - such natural conversation-starters they are. You can choose to sit inside amongst them or along the five-footway outside, which is where I took the above photo.
Although British Hainan serves classic dishes like Oxtail Stew, Braised or Grilled Rosemary Lamb Shank and Hainanese Pork Chop in the evening, it is the well-known "Wah Eng Beef Noodles" that you can enjoy between 11am and 5.30pm daily instead. Personally, I liked how tasty the thick sauce was, and thought the toppings in my bowl was pretty generous too.
If you are Hainanese, all the more you should visit this place because Mr. Puah is clearly, very proud of his heritage. Don't be in a rush when you are there. Have a chat in the dialect with him if you can speak it. Both he and his wife are very hospitable.

Hainanese Pork Chop is the star of this place. Admittedly the photo doesn't look great but it tastes better than it looks. Unfortunately my group had to wait close to an hour for our food, according to the owner its an anomaly because they were one chef down today. Anw this dish is priced at $15 thereabouts.
