I’ve discovered a new takeaway lunch place and it’s conveniently located near China Square, which is perfect whenever I attend lunch time services in town. The concept is really similar to the likes of the Daily Cut and Wafuken. Basically, you pick your protein, sides and accompanying sauce.

Opted to have some Hainanese curry rice. Despite the late lunch timing, there was still a queue which remained constant while I was having my lunch Continue reading
I’m willing to bet that most of us would not really know the name of this yong tau foo place. However, if you said that key words, i.e. Circular road yong tau foo, I think most people working in the CBD / Raffles Place would have an inkling of where you are referring to.
