😍 Char Kway Teow cravings satisfied. First time trying this popular CKT.

Ordered their largest portion at S$6 which is suitable for 2 persons to share.

Taste was good, neither overly sweet or salty to me. The kway teow and noodles are fried in dark sauce with cockles, eggs, pork lard pieces, lup cheong, fishcake, beans sprout. Expect long queue for this.

[Temporary located at Chinatown Complex Food Centre as the Zion Riverside Food Centre is currently under renovation]

Supposedly this is the Malaysian version which is on the spicier side, but to be honest I didn't notice much difference!!! It was very good thought and I loved the amount of egg given. The whole mini food court is not bad but feels a bit like a bougie food court...

Lovely cafe to sit and have a snack or light brunch at while doing work. Loads of power points for charging laptops and free wifi! The coffee is definitely the highlight. The GF cake was supplied by the Oh My Goodness bakery that specialises in solely GF bakes so you know it's legit.

Steak had a nice char! Good value with Burpple Beyond!

Worst dining experience ever that I had to log in to Google to write my first review publicly. Do not recommend for special occasions or any occasion at all.

1) Booked online but the restaurant was unprepared and even completely unaware of our reservation for a birthday.

Part of our dining group were lost trying to locate our table and had to rely on the neighbouring store’s staff to bring us to our room.

2) It was extremely difficult to order or request for bill - simply because there’s no one around. Poor service. It cumulated to me calling in to the restaurant’s hotline just to get someone to come over with the bill.

3) Wrong orders. Two dishes were missing and we had a repeat dish. We were also charged an additional dish.

We ordered 2 ngoh hiang, bill accounted for 3. After waiting for the bill, Staff 1 finally appears with the bill and we pointed out the inaccuracies. After some time later, Staff 2 comes to clarify. We repeat our story. Yet some time later, both staff reappear with plates from the kitchen claiming we had 3 servings.

That was more than 3 rounds of waiting for staff to basically appear, on top of frustration to get basic service the whole night.

We were more than happy to pay for the repeat dish which we did not order, but it’s something else to argue over 2 or 3 plates of ngoh hiang when we can clearly count the dishes on the table.

Worst F&B experience ever on top of ruining a birthday surprise.

One of the cafe’s popular items.
Very well priced at 5.20.

Could jolly be priced at 8 to 9 dollars in other atas cafes .

Interesting shio pan texture here - a little more chewy than ordinary breads but tasted very organic ie no bread improvers etc .

Smooth and enjoyable cappuccino.

Can try their baked curry puffs and lemon tart - one of the more reasonably priced items here .

Service is a plus plus point - friendly and warm .

Trying a yunnan blend for the first time and didn’t like the sourish tinge but top class service here from the accommodative staff whom changed my drink to a cappuccino- so much better .

The banana cake had a nice texture and good banana flavour - can do with much less sugar .

Quite a pretty cafe to sit and watch the world go by I say .

Pretty decent ramen! Noodles sufficiently springy but flavour is ok only, tasted almost like those Chinese yellow noodles. My black garlic broth is oddly milder than the normal garlic broth, but I preferred mine because the garlic broth one got saltier towards the end. They even have fresh sliced garlic in the soup itself so if you don’t like garlic don’t get their Umami series 😂

This place specialises in creative modern interpretations of Dim Sum . We tried the XLB, CCF , Dumplings .. everything is good . But it was cold and rainy that day and somehow the good old piping hot congee which had the sweetness of the pumpkin hit the right spot for me .
