Quite timely too, if I may add since I was getting sick of fine dining.
Yup, you heard me right.
Is this just a phase or am I jaded for good? I don't know but for now ...

Personally I've always been a white bak kut teh sort of person. My parents would take us to Rong Chen since it was near our place. Sin Heng 's ribs are pretty good but without a piece of childhood memory attached to it, it was missing the X-factor for me.

The chai poh omelette was good but it was no Pariaman. A dunk into dark thick soya sauce elevated it to almost-but-not-quite-Pariaman.
