This casual restaurant serves Indonesian inspired Asian food spread across three types of menus, including ala carte, porridge buffet and steamboat ala carte buffet. The porridge buffet has over 20 varieties of Indonesian Chinese dishes, while the steamboat buffet features over 100 steamboat and cooked food items.
Just found out about this really cheap porridge buffet at Tiong Bahru Plaza. For the price of $8.10 ( inclusive of GST ) and 20+ dishes of choices. I think is worth the visit.
Beside Porridge they also serve rice, among all the different choices of dish you can eat together with the porridge, I personally like the following:
1. Salty Egg - nice and not too salty.
2. Braised Pork belly- love it. Especially it is unlimited supply.
3. Mei Cai pork belly - again, totally my of dish.
4. Fish cake - surprisingly good.
5. Boiled egg in soya sauces - just like egg.
6. Mince pork - go very well with the porridge.
The rest is also good. But these are the few I got a few repeat.
Totally going back there again when I have a craving for porridge.
After taxes, the porridge buffet cost about $9 per pax ($6.90++) which is really a bargain, the dishes are mostly quite well prepared and I can taste that they used decents cuts of pork, chicken and fish in their dishes. The restaurant is tucked in the eatern end of Tiong Vahru plaza behind other eateries. The verdict arrived about 30min after my meal when I felt very thirsty, which means they were very generous with their MSG. Such a pity cause I am sure their dishes will taste quite decent with lesser or no MSG.
Went around TBP to scout for our next small gathering, we decided to test out Rajah Inn.
There is a skinny PRC waiter wearing specs seem to be having a bad day. While we were seated, she keep talking about how bad her colleague was and talk to us non stop till we told her off nicely.
She soon returned and having a bad attitude, every dish she served us, she put it on the table as if we've owed her a living
Food were so-so and ambiance were dark and not well lit. (Probably due to the wall colour)
We regretted our penny. Save your penny and go for nearby shops like Thai express, Lao Beijing or 18Chef.
