Haikee Brothers at Chinatown Point is another hawker stall business which has opened a standalone restaurant with a more upmarket setting. Hai Kee Soy Sauce Chicken has coffee shop stalls in Changi and Bedok for many years. It is not unusual to see long queues at those stalls, especially on weekends. The new Haikee Brothers at Chinatown Point is in a more central location and has a rather extensive menu. The modern casual diner is quite different from the coffee shop stalls in terms of ambience but the food is still good and the prices remain affordable.
Those working in Chinatown Point can find lunchtime in the mall even more stressful than working in the office. The corridors are congested and there are queues of hungry people standing in lines outside many of the restaurants and cafes there. Fortunately, there are eateries like Bowl Thai, a casual dining destination with a good range of classic Thai dishes. This Thai restaurant in Chinatown Point has comfortable seating and is a nice place to have a quick hearty meal.
Kok Sen Restaurant is a Singapore zi char outfit that was named a Singapore Bib Gourmand restaurant in the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Singapore Michelin Guide. Located in the Keong Saik dining enclave, the humble Kok Sen restaurant ticks all the boxes of what makes a good local restaurant in Singapore – traditional coffee shop atmosphere, good food, friendly service and fairly priced. Being air-conditioned is a bonus.
