The white carrot cake is the better one here.

Cheap and good.

Long queue during breakfast.

Available in $2 portions

Only open in the morning. Will closed shop before lunch time.

highly recommend the waffles! pistachio is a classic on point; my friend picked the white chrysanthemum which is an excellent choice

Their signature dish, have a slight wok hei.

Generous amount of ingredients.

Very old school place.

My first time trying bombolinis!

Oreo 🍪
Pistachio 🥜
Chocolate 🍫
Nutella 🌰
Lotus biscuit 🍪
PB&J 🥜

I admittedly don't have much to compare with but these seemed to have a very generous amount of filling in them. I managed to try the lotus biscuit and the pistachio, which were both thick and rich. You could even taste the gritty pistachios they ground down. However, others who tried it all agreed that the excessive powdered sugar tipped the bombolinis into saccharine territory. They were also quite greasy and the dough wasn't as chewy as what I'd expect from a doughnut.

These are considerably cheaper than the popular burnt ends ones (5 for $20) but given the neighborhood location (whampoa) the shop is located, these pastries could be considered on the pricier end.

The roasted chicken u always eat at wedding dinner.

It's crispy and juicy. Only $10 for half chicken, not bad pricing. Nothing to lose, now is the best time to try it.

Old school restaurant, can see they are having hard times, hardly any customers despite having promotions.

Lai wah has been operating for the last 58 years.

The are having promotions for:

1) $4 for mixed meat noodles/beehoon/horfun/fried rice/braised rice dishes

2) signature crispy fried chicken
3) boiled boneless chicken with kai lan
4) Boiled chicken with delicious sauce

$10 for half chicken and $18 for whole chicken. Usual price is $20/$38

Avaliable for dine in and takeaway.

So come down to support this old school restaurant. Their food is good, if not they wouldn't have been around for so long.

Lai wah has been operating for the last 58 years, chances are, if u are Chinese, your parents may have eaten here before.

Decided to have the fried rice, its fairly decent, and very generous with the meat ingredients, really old school, like the type My mum will cook at home. Very home cooked feel.

Yong Xiang carrot cake at Bendemeer food market always has a queue, and I can see why — their teochew png keuh and soon keuh can be pan fried and you can request for more ingredients to be added as you wish! Their pan fried png keuh and soon keuh with extra eggs and dark soy sauce was sooo good. This delicious mess only cost about $6 and is good enough to feed 2/3 pax. Great for breakfast!

Highly recommended by a colleague, so decided to return to try this.

The Venison was soft and tender and tasted good. The sauce also goes very well with the Venison.

Quite enjoyed this, will eat again for sure.

Bendemeer Prawn Noodle is one of the better stalls in Bendemeer Market, but that isn’t saying much. Sure, the prawn broth is undeniably umami, but it ain’t mindblowingly spectacular, and the noodles are, well, standard yellow noods.⠀

The prawns are sparing in serving, but they are acceptably fresh. The pork ribs are probably the most memorable element here, with a fatty felicitousness as it melts in your mouth ever so slowly between chews.⠀

Bendemeer Prawn noodles are decently delicious, and considering that they go for five bucks a pop, it’s hawker fare done right.

The most awesome plate of ribeye! We ordered medium and it was cooked to perfection. Definitely worth revisiting👍🏼
