    I have passed by this cafe many times, both the one at NAC and Tampines Mall. We won’t be surprised if we see the one at NAC packed all the time. Hey, it’s town after all right! But the one at TM is empty. Good thing it’s air-conditioned, if not there’s a high likelihood they smack flies most of the time.

    Decided to try the food there today after checking out the menu. Didn’t look too pricey, so well, let’s give this place a chance yea. Walked in and saw someone eating fried rice. Looked good. But I wanted to order a set lunch that came with a dessert. I asked if I could change my dessert to something else. They said that I could, but I need to pay extra - even if it meant that I asked for something the same price!

    Eventually I got myself a bowl of Crispy Chicken Noodle (or something like that) with soup. It cost me $6 I think, out of which the 2 small pieces of chicken they served could have cost them only 30c. You know, the sort you get from NTUC in a packet? The soup was quite blend. On the whole, it was quite plain other than for the chicken I had. And to think this cost me $6 when I think hawker centres have better noodles at $3 :s

    Disappointing..

      This one's is one of the few HK cafes that I like.

      The service here is quick but friendly still. They see you at the entrance and serve fast. They're also quite alert when you need you something.

      I usually order the Baked rice which is pretty good with a good serving of meat unlike some which you have to dig like crazy before finding any. The cheese is not cheddar thus it doesn't harden when served. Drink would usually be Red Bean Ice... This one needs some improvement as it's different every time it's served. Sometimes there's too much ice, sometimes it's too sweet.

      Ambience-wise... it's fine if you sit inside but the other seats are very visible to the passers-by and some people are plain rude staring at what you eat as they walk past. Even worse if there's a queue and those people watch you eat as they queue.

      Price-wise is slightly under $30 for two people so it's fine.
