pastry stuff not top of my list, but i quite happy to have a nice cuppa & chat with good friends. ambience wise it is no better than any of the good coffee places.

we had a day trip to JB recently, so we thought we would recast it for singapore. haha!

we also had a 10pax bakuteh + curry rice lunch at my place post JB. 🙂

a slightly different kind of curries. maybe i will give this curry hainanese pork chop a try also.

loo's curry rice

loo’s curry rice

the loo’s curry rice was quite simple food, dishes a bit limited, but still quite enjoyable.

curry sauce - loo's curry rice

curry sauce – loo’s curry rice

the curry was especially shiok!

not that it was better than the fish head curry or lemak chicken curry. it’s slightly powdery, but overall just very shiok combine with the rice & pork chop.

curry pork chops

curry pork chops

pork chop was good.

not a particularly interesting dish for me. still thinking whether i want to try cooking this. deep-fry is always a bit troublesome & i try to avoid.

curry sotong

curry sotong

curry sotong was good. large sotong, nice think ones. nothing special i guess.

meat balls

meat balls

meat balls were ok.

egg plant

the egg plant was good. nice colour & great taste.

chap chai was quite standard.

loo’s curry rice

simple food, limited selection, no really special dishes except curry.

green tea & almond pound cakes

after loo’s curry, we had coffee at tiong bahru hawker centre.

Just Average Zi Char @ Jin Wee Siglap on 25Apr2016

fish maw soup - S$25

fish maw soup – S$25

a friend organised a movie session on 25.4.2016. ^^

we watched 2 movies – “Room” & “Everest”. in between, we walked to siglap for dinner.

jin wee restaurant @ siglap

it’s a regular zi char eating house.

jin wee restaurant - menu

jin wee restaurant – menu

menu likewise pretty standard zi char fare.

we were looking at the lie tong 例汤 S$12 & the fish maw soup S$25. a friend decided on the fish maw soup.

soup was quite good. quite chokeful of ingredients, good amount of crabmeat & very tasty.

not as good as the fish maw soup at beng thin, but maybe not that far off.

seemed expensive at S$25 at a zi char place like this, but what’s important is it’s good la..

crispy pork chop - S$15

crispy pork chop – S$15

the crispy pork is popular here, we ordered the larger serving at S$15.

crispy pork was good, & the sweet sour sauce was well done too, a competent sauce not too sweet & good with the pork. sweet & sour not my favourite though.

overall i like loo’s curry pork chop better.

fried tofu with minced pork - S$15

fried tofu with minced pork – S$15

the fried bean curd with minced pork was quite tasty too.

felt expensive to me at S$15 for a simple dish with cheap ingredients, but maybe it was not exorbitant.

sambal kang kong - S$10

sambal kang kong – S$8

the sambal kang kong was nice if quite standard fare anywhere.

the dinner came to S$71 including drinks (we had 4 barleys + 1 tea) for 5pax, so about S$14pax. we ordered not much food though just 3 dishes + soup.

i thought the prices were just a bit expensive but it was quite ok dinner overall.
