The best of both worlds can be had here with adjoining stalls selling excellent roast meat and wanton mee. The sio bak (roast pork) is the best I've had so far, with its delightfully crispy skin and tender meat. Sweet-smoky caramelisation also brought out the natural flavours of the melt-in-the-mouth char siew.

The wanton mee was something else as well. It tasted very similar to Kok Kee's winning umami sauce, only it comes with springier noodles and way better char siew ☺️

Definitely a keeper in my books.

I don't think I've ever waited more than 15 mins for congee, and this just broke the record and doubled it at that. It was 1pm on that fateful day.

The portion is generous for its price ($4.50 for the pork+fish+egg+century egg option) and the pork slices and pork liver were expertly cooked to tenderness and creaminess respectively. Spring onion, fragrant fried shallots, and savoury tung choy (preserved vegetables) were also thrown in for added oomph. Worth trying if you're in the area, but do head down earlier to beat the lunch crowd. Closes at 3pm.

$12 gets you a big bowl of liquid gold teeming with fresh seafood (crayfish, prawns, fish) and minced meat. The opaque broth was surprisingly light and had a natural sweetness from the pork bones & crustacean. Won't mind having this again if I'm in the area.

A delicious twist on the kaya toast. Loved the heady coconutty notes and crispy thin toast. Pity the taste of matcha was rather weak. Other flavours include earl grey creme, cinnamon sugar and black sesame.

The sea salt mint iced latte was a refreshing pick-me-up in this sweltering weather, but again, the milk-to-coffee ratio wasn't in its favour. For non-coffee drinkers, chocolate and mocha options are also available with other interesting flavours such as black sesame, Irish cream, caramel rum, pumpkin spice, etc..
