Approx a 10min brisk walk from Tiong Bahru MRT station, this restaurant is located alongside many other eateries. In fact, the mass of eateries here are all Teochew Cuisine.. Reservations are recommended during peak meal hours as the restaurant had not a single empty table whilst I was there. Arriving at about 6.45pm on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was already packed. My reserved table was the only empty one. The restaurant is not big and does not cater to al fresco dining. About 10 tables

Approx a 10min brisk walk from Tiong Bahru MRT station, this restaurant is located alongside many other eateries. In fact, the mass of eateries here are all Teochew Cuisine..

Reservations are recommended during peak meal hours as the restaurant had not a single empty table whilst I was there.
Arriving at about 6.45pm on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was already packed. My reserved table was the only empty one.

The restaurant is not big and does not cater to al fresco dining. About 10 tables in all. A look around, the population were mostly aged, big clan families, dining together.

Service staff are quick to attend to you, they are mostly Mandarin/dialect speaking though. Service is prompt and courteous.

Here are the items we ordered: Gelatin pork belly, Omelette with oysters, green vegetables, Kong Bak (with steamed buns), Cold crabs, a steamed fish and a serving of Ngoh Hiang.
We had wanted to order noodles as well.. however, we realised that the only choice we had was Hokkien noodles.
The Fried Rice seemed popular. Almost every other table had a serving of it!

Gelatin Pork Belly -- erm.. seriously, the look of it was rather scary. Like clumps of plastic fat all over. Not my cup of tea. It is their special though...

To some, the Cold crab was alittle salty, to others, it was alright. To me, it was a tad dry. I'm more used to having crabs with lots of sauce/gravy!

The Kong Bak was tough. Would have liked it more if it was a bit more tender.

Best dishes for me? The Omelette and the vegetables. The omelette was wiped out after a turn of the Lazy Susan.


I would recommend this place for family dining and celebrations of birthdays - for the aged. The restaurant sells Longevity buns too. Pre-order is required.
