They closed their doors this Sunday at 24 Mar.
Really light and yummy Apple and Aloe Vera cake and wobbly bread pudding - omg I’m sad now that this would be the first and last time I would be having this. But oh well, but late then never.

If you having their sushi for the first time please try this! It is really good.

The mango really goes well with the ebi.

I have eaten their curry items before so decided to give it a try for the rest.

They do have unagi don which cut into pieces, together with the egg and rice. Of course it might not the best you can have but it is still worth trying.

Khao Soi, a Northern Thai cuisine, is one of my favorite dish. This stall sells pretty decent one. I just felt the curry is a bit too thick. For a set meal that comes with a drink and dessert, it only cost $6.90. Cannot complain 😁

Back at my hiding place at Dong Po colonial cafe.

Apart from my usual order of coconut tart , I was happy to see another of my favourites - the Pandan coconut cake on display .

So fragrant and moist with the natural flavour of pandan shining through and a little desiccated coconut to add some texture amidst the soft and tender cake . And at 1.50 per slice for so much love and effort - what affordability in this day and age where cafes are charging 7 to 8 dollars for cake slices that are mainly churned out in bulk from central kitchens ( or factories I call them ...)

This reminds me of a headline that I read somewhere on why would people pay 15 dollars for brunch but less willing to pay for a plate of wanton Mee which sometimes requires much more work , effort and behind the scenes preparation .

Perfect afternoon treat with a cup of their fabulous Kopi to watch the world go by ....

I hope places like Dong Po will live on forever ...
because it just preserves a past of Singapore....

Selected $4.50 bowl of hand crafted YTF.
Craved this favourite beehoon.
Today reduced spring onion perhaps.
So yummy!


This hearty bowl of beef stew is loaded with chunks of fatty beef brisket and silky noodles encompassed in a thick savoury soup. I like how the broth is not too starchy, and it combines really well with the other ingredients. The flavour of the broth is accentuated with the spices and leaves which they used in the broth-cooking process.

The side of meatballs and Vietnamese rolls were really appetising and opened up our palette. The meatballs were well-marinated and peppery, and had the right chewy texture. We throughly enjoyed munching on them ☺️ The fried rolls were very crispy and flavourful as well.

However, the fresh roll and chicken pho were rather bland and we felt that NamNam's might be better 🤔

Overall, the experience is pretty authentic and I love their warm hospitality. Would definitely be back again for my beef stew pho and porkballs 😍

The ANTicipated scale ⚖
👅Flavour: 8 ants
💰Value: 8 ants
📍Convenience: 7.5 ants

the rice on its own is quite bland to me. but mix the rice, herbs, sauce everything together, add a piece of the tender chicken and you will get a wonderful combo. she was full of praise for this dish during the entire duration. wanted to order the sambal prawns but they were not available.
$12 for this plate.

The drinks were good and i really liked the coconut tart! Was not overly greasy, but instead, refreshing.

The chocolate cake was very average.

Regardless, it is a very retro place to catch up with fam & friends over tea! The place is also air conditioned, so thats a bonus

This place is famous for their pork chop rice and noodle but recently they also started serving Lu Rou Fan and Fish Soup noodles (by the same boss under the same shop compound).

The Lu Rou Fan here is so good. A tad oily but that’s fine if you don’t have it everyday. Since the boss is Taiwanese, so this Lu Rou Fan is really compatible to the ones you get in Taiwan. Except that the meat is bigger in pieces here, instead of the more minced kind in Taiwan.

Portion is seriously big for $5. Give them a try if you are in Bugis area next time.


Taste: 5/5

A cursory touch of each pork chop reveals a very crisp exterior that makes each slice of it enjoyable down to the last bite. Not to mention the portion of the pork chop is huge
