We have zillions of such snack and kueh stores in the neighborhoods in Singapore but this one is a little more special. They actually have makeshift seats and tables for customers dining in. Chai Chee is not short of coffeeshops cos there are already 2 full sized ones round the corner but this one is always crowded. And I found out the reason why. See my food pic below for answer.
Taste: The fried beehoon and mee was good. Made me wanna eat more but my will power was stronger. Coffee lacks punch but it’s prolly only $1 or less. They have chee cheong fun, yam cake, carrot cake, lor mai kai, sometimes mee siam, etc. Neighbourhood gems like these keeps inflationary prices away. Love them!
Price: $3 with my kopi-c kosong.
Ambience: Messy. Eat house in a shop kinda concept.
Sorry for the lack of posts recently cos it has been madness since I came back from Medan and the mountains in North Sumatra region. It was definitely a rewarding trip as I was experiencing semi-wet processing of coffee beans for the first time and that this method of processing is pretty rare in the Southeast Asian region. Anyways I have loads of food pics to share, I will find a starting point soon.
Anyways this beehoon stall was previously at block 309 of Hougang Avenue 5. They had to move due to the landlord jacking up the rentals so that they can take it back and perhaps rent out to their preferred vendors. Very apparent problem in F&B scene unless of course you’re a brand to reckon with. But I’m actually even more happy to see them at block 327 as I board my buses from the bus stop there haha.
Good thing about this beehoon stall is that their prices are reasonable and at the same time, tastes good. There is another stall at block 322 which has been monopolizing the area for quite a while, even though the taste is really just soso.
Taste: As mentioned, the food is really good, well seasoned for the meats, only thing to pick on is the sambal chilli. Can be a little less liquid.
Portion: Normal portions are big. I ask for extra beehoon sometimes.
Service: Self-service. Lady over the counter serves while the hubby cooks behind. Service is good.
