Swatow Seafood

Dimsum lunch at the old Chinese restaurant in Toa Payoh. The name of the restaurant changes but for the last 10 years or so its called Swatow Seafood Restaurant. The decor has been updated but the food is still traditional. There are only a few of us so we had dimsum for lunch, some of the other tables ordered family sized set meals that came in really generous portions.

Don't ask for roast meats though, all the meat here is braised or deep fried.

Tian Tai Eating House

Corner coffeeshop at the intersection of Kim Keat Road and Lorong Limau is filled with malay food stalls. For some variety there is a chinese seafood zhu chao stall. The malay food here is really good and the place is always filled with patrons. It's about $2.50 for 3 vegetables & rice, if you have meat then its about $7.50.

Further down the road at the intersection of Kim Keat Road and Kim Keat Lane is an Indian coffeeshop. And when you hit the main road, there's BJ (Botak Jones) American Diner serving western food.
