I’ve been to this place twice and both times were pretty satisfactory. My family settled for weekend dinner on both occasions. We went in the evening to avoid the crowd. Whatsmore, early dinner is better too. More time to digest your food. Hahaha. The shop looks pretty rundown and there aren’t many tables around. However, the staff is rly friendly. The food is cheap and the servings are big. You get a big plate of stir fried vegetables for $8. Other zi char probably sells that good amount of veg for $10-$12? I realized there are quite a handful of regular customers because the Uncle who takes orders seems to know many of the customers!!

Signature dish: Ba Kut Teh (BKT): $6 (Smallest size. 1 serving) Looks dull but I really like their BKT. Very flavorful and they are very generous with their meat. There’s 4 big pieces of meat!!

Signature Dish: Curry Fish Head. Although this is their signature dish, i don’t really like it. Theirs is the salty version of Curry Fish Head. I am not sure if you get what I mean but I personally prefer the sweeter version. Nevertheless, I see it on many tables!

Steam Fish. We ordered the tail of “Ngor fish” (in Hokkien). I think its called threadfin. I prefer this to the Curry Fish Head. The fish is very fresh.

Toufu with minced meat. The uncle who takes order recommended this dish to us. If I am not wrong, they make their own toufu. This is really yummy!!

We ordered other dishes like Heng Cai etc.. I like their omelet. Pretty thick and delicious!

The canopy cafe

Eric and Joanne brought me to the canopy cafe for dinner last weekend!! It was a hidden jem with the stunning scenery.

So beautiful right!! ^^
I would prefer to go at night because of scenic view. It’s outdoor seating. We had their local delights. They do serve Japanese and western too but I am not sure how good they taste. Most people ordered the local delights anyway. However, their service is really slow. The waiters are not attentive and Eric got to ask strong>;thrice for an extra desert spoon. I strongly discourage you to go by public transport. You’ll be perspiring, annoyed with the long waiting of the only sbs bus that passes there. What’s more, the bus does not stop directly in front of the cafe. You still gotta walk a distance into marina golf club. It’s pretty inconvenient to get there unless you are travelling by car or taxi.

Two chef’s

Headed to Two chef’s eating placetwice in a week. The food’s Rly worthy for the price. To avoid the crowd, you’ll probably want to consider an early dinner , prob 530pm? I rched at abt 8pm during my first visit. There were a lot of people but the waiting time was pretty short although there’s a queue to be seated. Their service is fast. Food was served pretty quickly after we’re seated. A 10-15 mins walk from commonwealth MRT.
