PRICE:
$5.50 Seafood Black Pepper Bee Hoon
$4.50 Yee Mian

๐Ÿ‘Nice view of punggol marina
๐Ÿ‘Generous portions
๐Ÿ‘Yee Mian comes with a lot of fried pork lard

๐Ÿ‘ŽWould not order Seafood Black Pepper Bee Hoon because it lacks black pepper taste (only a sprinkle of it)
๐Ÿ‘ŽOutdoor seating area = Second-hand smoke (not suitable for families with children)

WOULD WE RETURN? Yes! Prices of rice and noodles are reasonable and comparable to the Punggol coffeeshop zichar rates

BILL: $15 for two

$4 Black bean sauce hor fun, $4 white bee hoon, $7 sambal potato leaves

PARKING: ERP parking right in front of coffeeshop

WAITING TIME: Amazingly slow. We were the second last customers when we arrived at 10pm on Tuesday night (there were only a couple of other customers, all of whom were already eating or finishing up). The last customer got his plate of white bee hoon AND finished AND left, before we even got served our plate of white bee hoon.
The sambal potato leaves came first, like it was supposed to be our appetizer dish. ๐Ÿ˜

SPECIAL LOVE FOR ๐Ÿ’—: the very flavorful sambal potato leaves (perhaps because of the generous amount of fried pork lard bits?) โ€ข Generous serving size for the regular portion of bean sauce hor fun

NOTES: White bee hoon was fried with an unimaginable amount of oil. We didn't recall it being this oily the previous times we ate here.

BILL: $58.50 nett (3 pax) inclusive of the 5th dish, Prawn Ball with Mayo & Pork Floss, which arrived first and got wiped out too soon

WAITING TIME: Reached at 6.45pm on Sunday. Not long at all for such a popular zichar place. Very efficient system (order first before getting a table). First dish arrived after 5 minutes.

SETTING: Coffeeshop

PARKING: Right downstairs (Coupon parking)

CHILLI: Nice belachan chili sauce + the usual chilli w/ soya sauce

SPECIAL LOVE FOR ๐Ÿ’—: the sauce in the Chili lala dish โ€ข the small crunchy bits in the signature Butter Pork Ribs

WILL NOT ORDER AGAIN: 1) Fragrant beancurd $12 - we all wished there were chyepoh among the minced meat but nope. 2) Prawn Ball with Mayo & Pork Floss $15 - the quantity just doesn't justify the price. Also do not like the mayo.

WILL WE RETURN? Definitely
