Beach Road Prawn Mee 美芝律大虾面 at East Coast

Beach Road Prawn Mee East Coast

The prawn noodles served in Beach Road Prawn Mee Eating House, which is found not in Beach Road but in East Coast Road, may possibly be one of the most popular in Singapore. The customers come by bus, by bicycles, by taxis and in their Toyatas, BMWs and even Bentleys to savour the famous prawn noodles. Street parking lots are available but never quite enough and you will see many cars parked illegally near the prawn noodles stall. The place may also be popular among some traffic wardens – they will surely issue their quota of parking tickets simply by being there during the opening hours of Beach Road Prawn Mee Eating House.

Brunch at Cedele Bakery Cafe, 112 Katong (Outlet Closed)

Cedele Bakery Cafe

Cedele opened a bakery cafe in 112 Katong earlier this year. They offer a good range of sandwiches, salads and soups. It has long opening hours and is a good place for breakfast or late supper and anything in between. The bakery also gives those living nearby a great option should they realise late in the evening that they have forgotten to buy bread for the next day’s breakfast.

Toothsome Cafe di Tanjong Katong (Closed)

Toothsome Cafe

(Note – under new management since July 2015 – see post Toothsome Cafe – New Owner, New Menu)

9 January 2015

There is a new cafe in Tanjong Katong just opposite the Katong Post Office named Toothsome Cafe. The name immediately reminded me of Oliver Dental Surgery down the road. I asked the manager of the cafe (or maybe the owner) about the name and he said it was derived from the idea of awesome food. The dictionary meanings of toothsome are “temptingly tasty” and “good-looking; attractive“. I thought the new cafe was quite attractive but the food there, though good, could not be said to be awesome.
