The place is tucked at a corner. Despite at a corner, you will see a long queue for the simple food. I call this simple food as it is this simple food that attracts most people, including me. I ordered a plate of mee hoon with an egg and luncheon meat, like most people. Feel so much like hong kong!! To complete the meal, i ordered a cup of coffee too. While sitting there, you simply do not feel you are in Singapore. The buzz around the shop... Only one word to describe. Nostalgic! continue reading

YY Kafei Dian 喜园咖啡店 - Beach Road/Purvis StreetA crowded and busy old school Hainanese coffee shop located right at the end of Purvis street.Make your order for all food and drinks at the counter.Range of old school breakfast on display: Assorted breads, donuts, sugar cookies and muffins.Back to the 60's chinese coffeeshop settingKopi, thick toast and half-boiled eggs ($4.90) - Thick toast was soft and fluffy on the interior with generous spread of home-made kaya and a thick slice of butter.Typical Hainanese breakfast of early daysHainanese chicken Rice ($4.00) - Both the steamed white chicken and roasted chicken were tender and rice was fragrant yet not oily. Overall food was on the salty side.Verdict: 3.5/5YY Kafei Dian sells a wide selection of Hainanese food which are equivalent to our typical local food. Zi cha menu is available as well for evening crowds. continue reading

My colleague suggested trying YY Kopitiam for lunch one day. YY Kopitiam sells ‘zhi char’ style food and there is also a chicken rice stall within the kopitiam. Hence, you could say that there is a wide range of food to choose if you run out of lunch ideas. One colleague ordered the Xin Zhou Bee Hoon, it is oily and does not have much ingredient. Another colleague ordered the Chicken Rice, it is lightly fragrant and chicken is soft. I ordered the Wanton Mee from the chicken rice stall. The wanton is not bad and the char siew is not thick and fatty.There is also a display cabinet full of kuehs. The kuehs were not bad and its great with a cup of coffee for tea break. continue reading

I get to know of YY Kopitiam's existence when my Hong Kong pal told me that this was under her list of Must Go places in Singapore. Decided to give it a try and see how it fare.Its retains of the old School Singapore Kopitiam Culture could be probably the reason why it was recommended in the page of singapore's tourist guide. Selling old styled local breakfast (half boiled eggs, big fluffy kaya toast with kopi or teh) and other local breakfast items. It does also serves zi char during lunch and dinner times.Not forgetting its ambience, it drew us back into the 80s, 90s where coffeeshop (kopitiam) were simple and humble unlike the modern fanciful decorations we had in most of the breakfast places right now. Well, I should say, we can hardly find such places nowadays.Food served was pretty run of mill and one could probably get them from any coffeeshop. Service was turned off especially when beverages were wrongly served and the worker was rude to took the cup away .Kopi O was lacking in fragrance, I could not smell the aroma of roasted coffee unlike other traditional coffee like Nanyang Coffee.The toast was fluffy on the inside and crispy toasted outside. Nothing to shout about as I could get the same type of bun from many other places in Singapore. Kaya was spread sparingly on the toast and the taste was somewhat unique. It had overpowering of coconut sugar.The plate fried vermicelli wss served warm. Surprisingly, the bee hoon was rather tasty and was fried just nice. It was neither too dry or too wet. However the side dishes was standard-fare.Nasi Lemak was factory made with packet of sambal chilli sauce in it. Unlike traditional nasi lemak, there was not fried egg in it. Just deep fried kuning fish and ikan bills served together with rice which was hard and very cold. The fish was over-fried & the rice was not fragrant.It's kind of wasted or rather a disappointing for us to travel all the way down on a sunday morning and experienced its slow and blur service. In fact, Perhaps if one is going for its environment, it's still acceptable. For food and service wise, there were definitely better players nearby.Total Cost: $9.20For Full Reviews, visit http://umakemehungry.blogspot.sg/2013/10/yy-kafei-dian.html continue reading

YY kafei Dian has home-cooked food that reminds you of home.A simple mixed vegetable in an earthen pot served steaming hot.Fresh vegetables of at least 5-6 types made up the dish:wongbok,babycorn,french beans ,carrots and jews ears and xiao bai chai .The second dish is seafood tofu with seasonal vegetables.The dish is fragrant with crispy beancurd.The third dish is chicken bite-sized cooked with carrots and french beans with cashew nuts thrown in.The children loved the simple dish.The fourth is unusual. It is bittergourd coated with duck yolk,flour and deep fried.The bittergourd taste is slightly hidden by the saltyduck yolk.Deep fried curry leaves are thrown in for that extra taste.The food is delicious with hot rice and as if that is not enough ,we called for a fried rice and a dry noodle.You can opt for mee goreng if you like it hot.The dry noodle is definitely better than the fried rice.It is chewy and fragnant.The total spending for 5 is around $60.00.We will definitely be back for other dishes. continue reading
