I have always been a fan of wantons and soups. So this dish was an utter delight to me. A bit of the oily side, both the broth and wantons were flavourful.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh! The char siew pork was so very tasty. It was melt in the mouth with just the right amount of sweet and spice. It think it is a must have.

Traditional Hainanese curry rice located at a corner within an old-school coffee shop. Like a normal cai png stall, we get to choose if we want to have our ingredients placed all together on a plate of curry rice or have them served on separate plates. We ordered the crispy pork chop, tau pok, braised pork belly, stewed cabbage and cereal prawns served with rice dosed with a trio of curry, braised sauce and chap chye gravy.

The crispy pork was a popular choice among diners with almost every table ordering it. It was fried till crispy and it is very addictive. The tender with melty layers of braised pork belly soaked up the braised sauce well that comes with subtle herbal notes. Stewed cabbage was well seasoned and cooked till soft. Another popular item was the crunchy and deshelled cereal prawns that consist of coarse bread crumbs, cereal and egg. All these are best enjoyed with a plate packed with flavours, rich and not overly cloying curry rice 》$17


Overall: 7/10

Tony's cafe serves some quality economic rice or cai fan. There is a good variety of meats and vegetables, and they tasted really food. I especially loved the black pepper pork as it was so tender and eat slice was coated fully in the sauce. The fried chicken, egg tofu, cabbage and brocoli were also well cooked but they did not stand out.

Prices are rather steep here as it cost $6.60 for 2 meat and 2 veg. While I don't mind heading back to try their meatballs which is said to be great, I don't think I'll frequent them due to the price.

What cheap stalls are there? Let me know!

This was a Tuesday (18 October) Special
Inspired by Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups
Salted dark chocolate ice-cream mixed with caramelised peanut butter and pretzels

A mix of kiwi, banana and malibu rum

Cafe latte with tinge of sweetness from manuka honey; well-balanced coffee & milk ratio; good for trying..

Mixed fruits & nuts salad topped with firm & chewy baby abalone in truffle sauce; truffle taste very very mild, nonetheless the sauce is quite flavorful with wide dimensional taste, light & appetizing; not the usual greens-only salad (zucchini, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, capsicum, purple cabbage, apple, raisins, almond, cashew nuts, etc.); good for sharing & worth a try..

Flaky & buttery pastry filled with generous portion of tender chicken with mashed potatoes & half hard-boiled egg; 1 of the best chicken I've tried locally; best for sharing as might get surfeiting..

Big bowl of thick bee hoon in laksa gravy; gravy is rich & palatable, not spicy; came with 3 fresh prawn, 1 piece of firm scallop, 1 hard-boiled egg, some fish cake slices & tau pok slices; another good bowl of noodle worth a try..
