MANY will not have heard of this Kopi Tiam. It is at the junction of Telok Kurau Road & Changi Road & is called Kim San Leng (Changi) Kopi Tiam (coffee shop). Here, I had Wantan Noodles with 3 tasty Sui Kow (half moon shaped dumplings filled with minced pork and mushrooms) in a clear consomme with springy Capellini-like yellow noodles, 1mm in diameter as well as Kai Lan vegetable. Not gourmet cuisine but quite tasty and I felt quite content after eating it. Enjoy it with pickled green chillies and a big glass of ice cold Barley in a Tiger Beer mug.
Across from the Kopi Tiam is Hong Ho Phang Hong Kong Pau…One of the very few places that make their Char Siew Pow and Tua Pow (barbequed pork) in house. Pow are fluffy steamed dumplings filled with very delicious meats like pork and boiled egg in the case of the Tua Pow. Tua Pow means in the Hokkien language: “BIG”!
