Dinner at Killiney Cafe Katong Square

One of the things to check off the list for tourists visiting Singapore is breakfast at the famous Killiney coffee shop. Many locals, young or old, also head to Killiney Kopitiam for the classic breakfast of kaya toast, soft boiled eggs and coffee. Killiney offers more than just breakfast. We have been eating at Killiney Katong Square recently and realised that Killiney Cafe is actually quite a good place to go to for affordable local food.

Killiney Cafe in Katong is located on the ground level Katong Square, the retail mall adjacent to Hotel Indigo and Holiday Inn Express Katong. It is quite spacious and has high ceiling and thus has an airy feel. It fills up in the mornings but during our visits in the evenings, the cafe is usually not crowded at all.

Local Dishes at Killiney


Some of the dishes we have tried at Killiney Katong Square are Hainanese White Bee Hoon ($7.80), Sliced Fish Mui Fan ($9.80), Penang Fried Kway Teow ($7.80) and the Mee Rebus Set ($6.50 which includes a cup of coffee). The a la carte price of a cup of kopi is $2.40.

Hainanese White Bee Hoon

Killiney’s Hainanese White Bee Hoon had seafood and lots of other ingredients including eggs and vegetables. The broth was light, yet flavourful. The bee hoon was not soggy and there was a hint of smokiness. It was a rather good version of white bee hoon.

Sliced Fish Mui Fan had ingredients similar to the white bee boon. The sauce was thicker and more gooey. The portion was quite large. The dish was not particularly remarkable. Nice comfort food.

Mee Rebus

The mee rebus looked good and the taste was not bad though we thought the gravy could be thicker.

The fried kway teow at Killiney Katong was not the sticky sweet version but the Penang style char kway teow. There were not much ingredients but the dish had wok hei and was tasty. The Penang Fried Kway Teow would be one of our favourite items on Killiney’s menu.
