Unforgettable taste of Authentic Peranakan food! Ordered the Signature Laksa, Sambal Prawn with Rice and Acar, Iced Teh C and Kuih Kuih. $35+ for 2 pax.

Eating in a temple?

I was amazed as i walked past this place, an uncanny eatery in the heart of CBD, it feels like time somewhat stops here and it gives off rustic vibes. Also, they are serving local delights here like Laksa, Meesiam, Seafood soup. We were very pleasantly surprised that the glass prawns are HUGE and fresh, certainly adding a depth to the broth.

Meesiam is nice. For $10.80, its a lil pricey, but you get a quality rendition of our local delights. Also, its a peaceful sanctuary to eat in. Will be back!

Had mee siam and lime juice for lunch. Comes with three jumbo prawn, the mee siam is not too sour and I quite enjoy it!

A hidden cafe found inside a temple... It's called Chong Wen Ge Cafe... Generous portion and the ingredients used are worth the price paid for... The nonya kuehs are not bad too but I find it abit pricey in the sense that is really very small for $1.50/PCs... I didn't take photos of it... Personally I felt the mains are more worth eating... Check this out...


It’s my first time seeing a juicy kueh dah dah. Do you see that fat drop on the glass?

It was flatly sweet encased in a sticky crepe that had no bite :/



I love evaporated milk.

So I had no qualms with this cup of: shot of espresso + full mug of (seemingly buttery) evaporated milk.

But this milky palate leaning is highly a personal preference.

7/10 (for me)
