顺利羊肉汤 (Shunli Mutton Soup) – Hougang, Singapore


This mutton soup stall has been around since a decade ago when Hougang Avenue 7 has a wet market cum hawker center. Every since the demolition of the market, this stall has moved to a coffee shop nearby to continue cater to their customers within the vicinity. This mutton soup is the Chinese style type and known for its strong medicinal taste which is suppose to be good for your body.

Stall front... selling a lot of other things also 'cos times are hard.

Manhattan Business Restaurant – Hougang, Singapore


This is actually a bad review for this coffee shop located at Block 811 Hougang Central, just opposite the entrance of Hougang Mall’s main entrance… Dunno why it’s named as a restaurant but that’s not the main issue. The main issue with this place is the drinks stall. The drinks are all overpriced… Overpriced is ok with anyone I guess but at least make your drinks taste good right?

A Kopi-C kosong (coffee with evaporated milk & no sugar) cost $1.20 (or was it $1.30?) and totally watered down! I was basically drinking hot water with a little coffee taste and a little evaporated milk! Drain water may taste even better! I read from foursquare that their milo is also bad! Overheads may be high but come on, not so bad until you scrimp so much from your drinks right?? Imagine it was so bad that I swore I had to write this article! Hope the owner reads this and do some changes for the prices they are charging…

But with all due respect, the chicken rice there is awesome but be prepared to queue during peak hours!

Store front…
Taste like water from the drain…
