豐盛號 Fong Sheng Hao Singapore is a retro Taiwanese breakfast cafe. The Fong Sheng Hao breakfast of charcoal-grilled toast with milk tea is said to be one of the top must-try breakfasts in Taipei. Originating from Taipei’s Shilin Market, Fong Sheng Hao Singapore sets up shop in the newly opened Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ).
Fong Sheng Hao Singapore in PLQ Mall
Located in basement 2 of PLQ Mall, Fong Sheng Hao 豐盛號 Singapore occupies a small space near the entrance of FairPrice Finest. More than half of the shop is taken up by the food preparation area and the cashier’s counter. Using small tables and simple stools in the remaining space, the cafe can accommodate about 30 dine-in customers.
Fong Sheng Hao Menu
The menu of Fong Sheng Hao Singapore is quite straightforward. There are sandwiches, charcoal thick toast, tea and coffee as well as a few breakfast items like half boiled eggs and ang ku kueh. When we visited, only the sandwiches and beverages were available. The charcoal toasts were not.

Toasts with Milk Tea & Coffee
A self-service system is used at Fong Sheng Hao Singapore. You place your order and pay at the counter and collect the beverages. A buzzer will be given to prompt you to collect the food.
We ordered the Pork Egg & Cheese Toast with Milk Tea Set ($9.60) and the Pork Floss Egg & Cheese Toast with Kopi Set ($7.50). The wait for the food was about 15 minutes. Expect to wait more than 20 minutes when the cafe is busy.
The coffee was strong coffee like the local coffee from our typical coffee joints. The signature milk tea was nice, with a natural smooth taste, and not too sweet.
The Pork Egg & Cheese Toast looked plain and unexciting. There was quite a generous portion of egg but the pork slices were thin. The pork had slightly crispy edges. The sandwich had to be eaten quickly as the melting cheese and butter would make the bread soggy. The combination of savoury and sweet flavours made the sandwich quite enjoyable.
The Pork Floss Egg & Cheese Toast had egg omelet and pork floss as the filling. Besides cheese and butter, condensed milk was added, resulting in a sweet savoury combination. If you had tasted the Flosss buns from BreadTalk, you would be able to imagine the taste of Fong Sheng Hao’s Pork Floss Egg & Cheese Toast. We liked the Fong Sheng Hao’s Pork Floss Egg sandwich more than the Pork Egg & Cheese sandwich.
Satisfying Fong Sheng Hao breakfast
Overall, we had a good satisfying Fong Sheng Hao breakfast. We thought the sandwiches were nice but to label them as must try food would probably be overselling them. Perhaps we were not unlike visitors to Singapore, having read travel guides listing Killiney’s kaya toast as one of the top local Singaporean food to try, finding our local breakfast toast enjoyable enough but wondering what the big fuss was about. It could also be a case where a Fong Sheng Hao breakfast in Taipei would have a certain element of romance and having the same sandwiches in the basement of PLQ Mall would be a somewhat different experience.
