What's up with the bad reviews?!

Either there was no menu or we were not given one. But who cares since we knew what we wanted. We took a plate of chicken, hainanese pork chop, roast pork, and sambal kang kong. If you are ever clueless in Yet Con, just go with these dishes. You won't regret it.   Some have complained that the chicken was "bland and tasteless, with no sauce" but that is precisely why I love the chicken here so much. The chicken was served without the usual sauce and oil, and sits on the plate naked. Without the sauce and oil, you are able to taste the fragrance of the chicken for what it is worth. There is no need to hide under the layer of sauce and oil, like a shy maiden hiding behind the screen. Together with the chilli, the chicken was so tender and fragrant.    The hainanese pork chop was nice, but it was not mind blowing. I really adored the roast pork!! Crispy, not too much fat, and just so good. I was also completely blown away by the sambal kangkong. Sambal kangkong is a very simple dish that I have all the time, but this has got to be one of the best ever. They were very generous with the sambal so the dish was super tasty.    We finished everything happily and decided to wash this delicious meal down with KOI Bubble Tea from Bugis Plus. I was so full and happy from the meal and bubble tea! We burned the calories by walking back to the office.

Justice to Yet Con... Or is it?

Despite the ravingly bad review at the bottom, my husband & I still decided to visit Yet Con anyway as we live in close proximity & that we never venutured into Purvis street for food before.

We ordered Hainanese Chicken + Sweet and Sour Pork. 

The sweet and sour pork, in my husband's own word, was the best in Singapore he has ever tried. I found it quite tasty & less oily than most in Singapore too but compared with those from Hong Kong, the flavor can still be a bit more balanced.

The Hainese chicken I believed has the most controversy & many compared with Tian Tian, for that I would say the followings:

1) Texture & tenderness -wise, both shops had their chicken well done. 
2) If flavor is more important for you, go to Tian Tian.
3) If you wish to be able to taste the chicken with natural chicken flavor, Yet Con wins - hands down. This may also explain why their chicken is so much more expensive.

The only thing I really didn't like (the non-existent service aside - though I don't find the service "Bad" per se - I have seen much worse.) is that they have this strange public toilet like odor coming out everytime they open the door to the kitchen. That was really yuck considering we paid $26 for a 2 person's meal.

Overall I will say the place is worth a visit once or twice in a year for their chicken & pork, though you won't find me eating there that often - partly due to the cost, partly because I really don't like the odor from the kitchen.

Yet Another Con.....

Real disapointment as this was THE place for chicken rice ! (including the ambience)
Terrible value for money: we paid close to $40 for 2 persons
Roast pork was dry and hard; portion of chicken was right for 2 persons and the veg was huge (to be fair not sure if they only have one size)
The rice which used to be their signature'dish' was bland.
When we paid at the counter and were rather surprised at the bill, we tried to ask the old guy at the counter if the amount was correct - he simply glared at us and just kept repeating 38.40! 38.40!
Next time we're going across the street....!
