Stumbled upon this old school-styled cafe which had traditional kopitiam delights at an affordable price in comparison to the other establishments in the Tanjong Pagar area.

Started off with the Peanut Butter French Toast ($4.50) which were slightly-bigger-than-bite-sized squares of eggy bread filled with peanut butter, with drizzles of honey on top. This combination worked surprisingly well, but I wished the peanut butter filling was thicker and creamier.

For mains, we had the Signature Hainanese Chicken Cutlet ($15.90). The chicken cutlet was clearly the star of the show - a huge, thick slab of breaded boneless chicken leg. Bite into it with an audible *crunch*, and you'll be greeted with the juicy and flavour chicken within. Pair this with the rich, buttery gracy, and you have a winner of a chicken cutlet. Loved this from the first bite till the last lick of the plate.

Washed everything down with the Iced Teh C ($4), and we were already making plans to return to try the other dishes on the menu!

Crispy toast with Kaya butter 👍 and air-conditioned dining place. Curry chicken normal not too nice for personal.

The French Toast Peanut Butter ($4.50) is quite pillowy and although there isn’t a lot of peanut butter, the peanut butter does come through. This is pretty enjoyable.

The Hor Fun with Egg ($6.90) is a wok-hei bomb - there is so much smokiness packed into this deceptively normal looking hor fun. The hor fun is nicely charred and the gravy is tasty. Wished there were more ingredients to go with the noodles though!

Went on a weekday and there was already a queue at 1145am. Best to head down earlier

Portion size is quite big. Would recommend 2 dishes + 1 side to share among 3 ladies

Recommended dishes
Fried hor fun, signature hainanese chicken cutlet, bread with kaya and butter, chicken wings!
