Steam Sia, as the name suggests, isn’t quite your usual modern bistro bar. Located in the heart of Serangoon Road, Steam Sia is presented with a simple idea in mind - to live in retrospect of the past.

I like the retro decor of the place! Food had hit and misses. Curry chicken is highly recommended and the prawns are good too!

is the retro makeover becoming an 'in' thing nowadays? this shophouse cafe is decorated with vintage stuff from the 60s to 80s, such a 'blast from the past'. tried the signature grilled salmon, and it was good. the assam fish did not live up to our expectations, maybe we should have chosen to stick to the 'signatures' and ordered the popular nonya curry chicken instead.

 Steam Sia is a place where children born in the late 19's still can have remembrance of their childhood. As part of their decor, they have old nokia phones, which are known to be as durable as hammer, snakes n ladder board games, old ceramic bowls and plates, rotary phone, and also a hopscotch drawn, etc! Seems very Singapore style cafe, but they do serve western food too.
 
 Ordered raisin float for only $5.90, which I liked a lot. Sweet, and have my favorite rum & raisins!
 
 Seafood Stuffed Sailing Boat $8.90. Don't really see much seafood in it, except for prawns?? Something like baked potato with prawn as topping, some bits of mushrooms. Tasted ok, though you can grew sick of eating it.
 
 Nonya Assam Prawn with Pineapple $8.90. Their prawns and big, but not as crunchy as I wanted it to be. Assam sauce is not too sour, just nice for me :) Neither is it too spicy :P
 
 Steam Sia Nonya Curry Chicken $12.90. They also have it for serving 2 pax at a price of $20.90. Curry looks spicy, but it is ok. For average-spicy takers, this should not be a problem. They have tomatoes in the curry, thus, I think this emits a little sweetness to the curry, lowering the spiciness in some way. Their bread is soft to pull apart and chew, making my meal less energy intensive!
 
 They also have 3 corners which I think are quite cosy, more to having a little more private space. Do read my blog for the illustrations!

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
