1. Pork Bun “猪”扒包
I was introduced by a colleague to visit Seng Huat Coffee shop for a surprise breakfast set a few days ago. I was simply amused by the comical choice of toast that the owner chose; a piglet-faced one. In fact, this is the first time that I come across such unique pork burger, that really “lives up to it’s name”. Over here, you get to enjoy this delectable pork burger for only $3.50! The succulent, marinated pork chop, complemented with butter, cheese, mayonnaise and chilli, is packed in between a pair of adorable piglet-faced toasts; an absolute gastronomic delight that you may even hesitate about taking the first bite!
For those with a heavier appetite, you may opt for the set meal ($4.80), which includes 2 additional eggs and a choice of coffee or tea.
Though it is a plain and ordinary coffee shop, I was impressed that food hygiene is maintained at the highest standards and with the friendly staff on site, it is a place not to be missed!
Who says you’ve got to burn your pockets to enjoy good food? Come on down to Seng Huat Coffee Shop to grab your pork burger today!

2. Hot Plate Oyster Omelettes 铁板蚝蛋
I am certain that I am not the only one that feels extremely queasy after gobbling down a plate of fried oyster omelette. Or sometimes guilty for letting all my workouts go down the drain. After all, you know what they say: a minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips. Oyster omelettes have always been a forbidden pleasure for weight loss seekers like me.
Last week, I chanced upon Tokyo BBQ and decided to give the oyster omelette a try after a long day at work. To my astonishment, it is one of the most enjoyable and less “sinful” oyster omelettes I have ever tasted. Unlike most oyster omelettes, this one uses lesser oil since the owner chooses to use the hot plate style instead of frying, a healthier version I must say. The oysters used are ginormous (about 2 times larger than normal ones), much fresher and extremely juicy. An intriguing addition is its sesame seeds, which adds a different texture to the dish. Many may not know, sesame seeds are actually excellent sources of protein and calcium!
The hotplate oyster omelette comes in 3 different prices ($8/$10/$12). For a plate of $8 omelette, there are about 13 to 15 oysters. Depending on your appetite, the more you pay, the more oysters you get! Though prices may appear steep, you are paying for quality and the investment is definitely worth it.

3. Heart-Shape Toast 心形面包
Few weeks ago, I chanced upon a unique breakfast set whilst rushing off to work. I was HEARTened to see such a LOVE-ly kaya toast served in a way which I have never seen before, a heart-shape.
The stall holder makes the effort to imbue some creativity to make ordinary toast extraordinary. Like most coffee shops, kaya and margarine are their two main spreads. For those who wish to have a heavier breakfast, do try out their breakfast set meal that comprises the heart shaped toast, 2 eggs and a cup of coffee (that tastes mediocre- hey, where is the love?).
This breakfast set really did surprise me and was an unexpected highlight of my day. So come on down to try this set meal and perhaps, pick up some of their skills in making this heart-shaped toast to surprise your friends and family too!
