This is really good. The coffee has great flavour and is strong and smooth. But the cup is really too small for the price.

Surprise find. Gelato shop in an old neighbourhood run by two aunties.

Nestled in the industrial estate of Ubi, Lay Eng serves a mean bowl of lor mee. A good bowl of this gooey goodness lies in its gravy which in this case was savory, subtle and not overly starchy. The ingredients were pretty generous and the fried fish fritters were wonderfully fresh and crispy.

WHALE LALA PASTA: Mala base pasta with mushroom and juicy prawn; not too oily and spicy; taste is well-balanced..
SIGNATURE TERIYAKI SALMON RICE BOWL: A slice of salmon on brown rice with edamame, corn and cherry tomatoes; quite flavorful; salmon is well-cooked and skin is slightly crisp..
BEAUTY SMOOTHIE: Avocado milk shake with honey; thick and creamy..
PANDAN KAYA LAVA CAKE: Pandan cake with kaya lava flowing; topped with vanilla ice cream; not too sweet; portion is small: good for 2 to share the calories..
CLEANSING JUICE: Green apple and lemon juice; super sour and refreshing; aids in digestion..
Overall a satisfactory and affordable meal at a small cosy cafe; service is good; no GST and service charge; will be back to try other dishes..

Fell in love with this wanton mee! There’s a few other options here for wanton mee, but Burpple and the queue told me that this was the better of the bunch. The noodles here also leans more towards the thinner, Hong Kong style mee with a less eggy texture and every mouthful had a great bite. But the thing that brings it all together is the generous spicy, slightly sweet sauce coating every strand. Even their wanton, something I don’t normally care much about, earns my vote of confidence for the well seasoned meat and silky skins!


Grab your colleagues and pop by this cafe that is just a short walk from Tai Seng MRT. Must-tries include their well-seasoned Mushroom Aglio Olio ($14.80) and the tender yet crisp Louisiana Grilled Chicken Rice ($12.80) served with brown rice seasoned in nutty-sweet sauce. Pro-tip: drop by for lunch because all mains come with a tea or coffee.

Came back to Prodigal Cafe specifically for this beaut so here she is. It was very crowded at 2pm in the afternoon on Hari Raya as it was a public holiday, but we managed to get three seats at a table for six. The staff were quite attentive and came to ask if there were enough seats for us at the table which was nice.

We weren’t asked which bread we wanted this time, so I guess the default option was the Hokkaido thick toast that I have no complaints about. This dish is every bit as good as I remembered and my parents enjoyed it just as much. We’d make more frequent visits here if it weren’t so out of the way for us, but at the same time we also appreciated this quaint, cozy cafe in an ulu HDB neighbourhood.
