Read a lot of reviews on this place but did not have a chance to try as we were always there on wrong timing, i.e. weekends dinner crowds or during school holidays.
If not for complimentary tickets to board Singapore Flyer, we doubt we will ever order any food as this place was always packed with both locals as well as tourists.
We were quite amazed as this place was designed to resemble the 60s where rugged wooden tables and chairs were commonly used in old coffee shops. We also saw familiar street names being displayed to indicate what type of popular food being remembered by diners.
We decided to try a few stalls to get a taste of the nostalgic childhood of ours.
Fried Prawn Noodles – We saw a long queue and thought that it must be delicious but while waiting, we noticed that the noodles have already been pre-fried and one guy just took a portion of the noodle from a pot, threw some spoonful of broth, gave it a quick stir and then add in the rest of the ingredients. Instantly, we knew we have chosen the wrong stall.
Fish Ball Noodles – This is a better bet as the handmade fish balls are big and chewy. The noodles were cooked just nice.. Not too soft or lumpy. The chilli gravy was good too.
Ice Ball – The stall holder was a bit stingy on the colourful syrup but being a humid day, we don’t mind as what we wanted was to quench our thirst. We saw that some of the soft drinks like Coke or Kickapoo were sold in smaller bottles with a big tin cup which we found it quite memorable as that was how we used to share our bottled drinks with our siblings.
We also heard old sentimental songs being played and this brought back many old memories that we shared with our grandparents during the kampong days.
