Friend recommended this place to us and we travelled there one peak hour weekday. Parking was horrible and this area, although in Singapore feels like another part of the world, messy, very crowded, foreigners milling around and compacted into a small area next to a small car park.
Food: We ordered the fried bean curd with filling, penang fried kway teow and the hokkien mee. The fried bean curd was powdery and nor well fried, miserable amounts of filling. The hokkien mee (soup) lacked the pork flavour and it was only spicey, as all Penang hokkien mee are but lacking the robust taste of prawn and pork. The only good dish I ate was the Penang fried kway teow and I think that, by being healthy, they fried it with a mix of vegetable oil (cheaper) and pork lard. Enough garlic and chili made it taste with adequate fire and stir frying.
Value: Expensive because of the poor ambience and above kopitiam prices.
Ambience: We sat outside next to the five foot way and road, on a cool night comfortable by would be better inside (was the aircon working properly??).
Service: A mohawk-hair-cut man with hair stained red took the order and he was in a hurry and gangster like, which describes the happenings in Geylang - all in a hurry to make money, stay away from the police and hewn in a rough manner.
