Mui Kee Congee Singapore serves the famous porridge from Hong Kong which had been at the back of our minds since they were introduced to Singapore by the Les Amis group a couple of months ago. The only thing that deterred us was the crowds that gathered at lunchtime, which meant a queue on most days. If you, like us, have been holding off visiting Mui Kee Congee for this reason, we have good news. It seems that the initial frenzy has cooled down. We visited on a weekday at lunchtime and there was no queue!
Cheng’s @ 27 coffeeshop in Tiong Bahru looks very different from the typical zhi char coffeeshop in Singapore. It is bright and very clean. According to a Straits Times article :25 years and counting: Hainanese coffeeshop Cheng’s 27, the Cheng family regularly receives generous offers to buy over the well positioned corner coffeeshop, but they are not selling. The business has operated in this location since 1989. Previously known as Cheng’s Delicacies, a new generation of Chengs had taken over this business and renamed it Cheng’s 27.
Yellow Pot Restaurant at Six Senses Duxton Hotel is a new modern Chinese restaurant where the interiors excite diners as much as the food.

The food at the restaurant should also meet the approval of the urbane 007 agent.
