great location.
Ok, I don't live here but I love this place. Why? Because they have so much FOOD!! Let's see, for breakfast there's 2 choices of excellent dim sum and curry mee. A short drive to OUG there's beef noodles and a great chicken chop, not to mention the morning market... See More
with so much good food inside, the chin long bao is a must to try! That's just my favourites for breakfast.
For dinner (I'll get to lunch later) my favourite is Secret Loc which its food is two million times better than Wong Kok or Kim Gary's. So much bigger portions and so much better quality! Then there's the penang char kway teow nearby also and the owners are really from Penang! And then for desert there are the Sweet Hut on the same row as Shabu Shabu facing the main road.
Now lunch... skipped that since I don't really take lunch. But they have fish head noodles, gourmet burgers, Chatime, Snowflakes... all my favourites! Plenty of mamaks too but I don't like mamak food so I never tried those. Erm... so much more food there! Down the road to OKR also near got the Thai Street Food I love it!! Well, only like Kuchai Lama for the food la. Other than that.. me no likey the environment there. xP
