Had the Golden Prawn Fritter Rice Set ($10.80) and the Steamed Chicken w Vegetable Set ($14.50). Overall enjoyed both but nothing outstanding. Could find similar quality at a cheaper price.

Pretty interesting Gula Melaka Kaya Butter Toast! The spread was very unique and love the fluffliness of the bread. Teh was not too milky which was good!

Extra crispy, golden-brown pork cutlet topped with sweet onions, cubed potatoes and served with tangy tomato-based sauce is damn good and makes me very happy!

This is the first Hainan Story location. It is a food court which sells only Hainanaese food such as the ever popular chicken rice by Wee Nam Kee, claypot Yee Mee, etc. But I came for coffee and their Hainanese Kueh - Yi Bua. This used to be something only available during special days of celebration and remembrance. At least that’s what I experienced as a kid.

Made with glutinous rice flour, the Yi Bua here comes with coconut filling and coconut/peanut filling. Both are sweet, with the latter a little savoury. It complements the glutinous rice pastry skin well. Coupled with a cup of Hainanese coffee and soft boiled eggs, maybe a Kaya toast, it becomes a perfect way to start your day.

Next time I’ll come try the rest of the menu. Hainanese must support Hainanese, my father used to say.
