Had porridge here for lunch on a Friday afternoon - the queue gets long from 12pm onwards, so we managed to beat the queue around 11.45. Do note that you need to top up to add egg and youtiao! I didn’t really like the youtiao though because it wasn’t crispy and felt kinda soft and chewy, unless it’s meant to be like that... I also found the porridge slightly bland by itself, had to add quite some soy sauce and pepper. I actually think I still prefer the Kovan market porridge. But good choice of wholesome food if you’re in the area!


I personally feel this is the best porridge place in Hougang and one of the best porridge places in Singapore.

What you get here is comforting porridge choices that will surely satisfy. My personal favourite is their century egg with lean meat ($4, add 50 cents for egg); the porridge here is tasty & smooth with a good consistency. I added abalone slices ($3) to complete my meal.


This Hokkien mee is the more soupy kind, rather than the more fried, dry kind. I added all the chilli provided inside and it made it even better; very flavourful and yet packing a good punch. I’d say this is one of the better ones I’ve tried, but I still love chomp chomp’s most, and Yi Ji Hokkien Mee at Kovan (near Punggol nasi lemak) for their crazy chilli. 👅

Had the Oreo cheesecake flavour and taro flavour. Do note that the gelato deal means 1 for 1 on double scoops ($6.50)! I enjoyed the flavour of the oreo cheesecake but I felt that the texture was lacking, it wasn’t creamy and it was difficult to scoop up occasionally. The taro was more creamy but the flavour wasn’t exceptional, tasting rather ordinary instead of a strong, rich authentic taro I was looking out for. But overall decent ice cream here, will recommend with burpple’s 1 for 1 deal and if you are in the area.

Came here with no expectations but the curry was really rich and flavourful and also spicy enough (for jap curry standards). Every bite of the curry and rice was like heaven for me, as the flavour was so good and so much better than typical chains like monster curry (which IMO has pretty mediocre curry). The chicken cutlet I ordered was also golden and crispy, and I enjoyed the ham tonkatsu as well which was pretty unique. You can get Japanese curry rice here for around $5 onwards, so this is really value for money. I’d return again for my fix of Japanese curry for sure!

I got the student meal with nacho cheese on popcorn chicken ($7.90) and I added on pork cutlet (+$2.80). The curry exceeded expectations, it was thick and savoury. The meat was decent too

May the year of the pig be as stuffed and juicy as this cute pork chop bun! 😋

Nice, quiet and cosy cafe operated by timbre group. No service charge but you've to return tray. Dogs allowed! Food is decent fusion style.
