Alex’s Eating House – Beach Road, Singapore

I can’t believe I didn’t write about one of my favourite places for canton roast meats in Singapore! I reckon it’s prolly because I frequented this place way before I started eatwithroy! Believe me, this place has been here since I started working 17 years ago! (Damn, I’ve just disclosed my age!) My memory about this place can sum up with only one word, crowded. Especially during lunch hours. Nevertheless, they always have enough supplies to serve their customers as they roast all their meats at their simple kitchen facility behind.

I visited this place again recently hence I was able to snap pics of the place and the food. Seriously, the standard of the food here did not drop a bit! Love it when they maintain the food standards so that the younger generation can get the taste of the good foods that we eat when we were young! Check out the pics and reviews below:
