Located next to the Punggol Park Connector which is where I usually hangout to cycle or to exercise. Visiting the park connector at different times of the day brings about different feelings. When you are there for a late night supper, you can feel how tranquil and serene the place is.
With a pitch dark forest staring back at you, and all you hear is gentle breeze howling at your ears. I really enjoy night walks there, but always be alert as there may be stray dogs around. If they do appear, just remain calm and walk away - do not show your teeth and do not show signs of anxiety (such as quickened foot steps). Why? Because all those actions are provoking and threatening to them, and that will land you into deep trouble...
After a long day of work, I would visit small cafes and restaurants to unwind. Not all the time, but whenever I feel a little hungry, yet a full meal is going to be waaay too much for me.
I have visited this tea restaurant twice, and managed to try out their chef recommended foods and their toasts. Just so I could provide a more wholesome review with a variety of food. ^^
AH DONG TEH HOUSE
10 Tebing Lane, #01-03/-04
Tel: 6241 0309
Here's a snap shot of their menu, introducing their tea restaurant.
Here's Ah Dong's recommended dish, the Curry Ramen.
1. The curry was diluted. As if they wanted to save curry for another bowl of ramen.
2. It was not spicy despite being labelled as spicy
3. The potato was "lan" - overcooked, and it literally tasted like mash potatoes
This costs below $10 (can't remember the exact price anymore), and it is something I would never order again because it didn't taste good at all. I would recommend you to go to the Hong Kong Cafe to have their curry ramen, it is thick and delicious.
FISH & CHEESE
Decent fish and chips, but there's definitely better ones out there~
ICED MILK TEA
What's a Cha Chaan Teng without milk tea? So I ordered a cuppa ice milk tea.
It did smell like the real deal, however it was still lacking in flavour. Tea bags when over soaked will produce a very "siap" taste - a sub-taste of bitter. So... it's pretty normal.
Overall: 2/5HOT MILK TEA
|Stains on teaspoon|
(Includes 2 half-boiled eggs, 1 drink and 2 slices of toasts)
The toast was very good, it is thinly sliced and crispy! The kaya had a very nice gritty texture, and the thick butter is chilled yet soft when you bite into the toast. (I am not the best at describing food huh). I really would recommend having this if you come here, just the toast hehe.
Are you a OCBC card holder? If you charge this meal to your credit/debit card, you would get 10% off ala carte items AND receive a $5 VOUCHER for your next visit with no minimum spending. Because of this, I will be going back just to have my toast. Hee...
