🍝 Penang Fried Kueh Tiaw ($5) - For me this is portion for 2! Loaded with cockles, deep fried lard, prawns and sausage, this is definitely a yum! Just can’t believe such a big plate just cost me $5.
🍛 Curry Pork Rice (&5) - Portion is really out of expectation!!! The curry tastes more to ‘Malay’ type compared to other curry like Thai’s. You can taste herbs and spices other than just santan.
🌱 Stir Fried Spinach ($8) - No special comment but it taste ‘homey’.

Here in this cosy family like restaurant we like this fatty char siew and thus missed vegetable dishes.

This char siew is one of the best fatty char siew in Singapore. It's around $15. The sambal vegetables consist of different types of vegetables.

It also has KL Hokkien mee. Overall we rate this 8/10. Good for family dining if you can stand the oily dishes.

Crab bee Hoon, Guinness pork ribs, crispy tofu. All were really good and would reorder every dish.

Bring the clan for the ultimate family dinner — Char's Double Roast ($24 for 350g) with Special Char Siew and Roast Crispy Pork Belly. And since you get 1-for-1 with Burpple Beyond, balance out all that meat with the excellent Three Treasures (spinach with eggs, $14) and Dou Miao with Dry Scallops ($14.80).

I thought it will be dry but it turned out the deep fried pork is crispy on the exterior and tender inside. This is flavoured by the aromatic garlic, elevating the whole dimension of the dish.

Had a lovely lunch here at good chance popiah. Loved the chilli and the popiah filling. The small set for 6 rolls is $19.80. It is so good. Ordered the vermicelli and the orh nee too. The vermicelli is abit oily. While the orh nee $4.80 is not recommended. The real good type of orh nee doesnt taste like this. Overall a satisfying meal, no gst or service charge. The price is what you pay. Appertiser is $1.50. Towel $0.50. Free water.


三撈河粉 was not to my liking though my friends enjoyed it

PRICE: Starts from $0.50 a stick

WAITING TIME: 5-10 min

- limited choices for the lowest priced ($0.50) sticks
- not as oily as the ones you get in JB
- the sauces aren't as fantastic as those in JB

WILL WE RETURN? Possibly. Since there is hardly any late-night food option around Punggol. But the thought of sitting and eating in the outdoor aka smoking zone though...😣
