Came to Foong Kee Coffeeshop at Keong Saik Road for wan tan mee, but we were more impressed by the well roasted Char Siew as some other blogs have mentioned. I especially liked the crispy almost burnt or charred sweet bits (sweetness courtesy of the honey added in the marinade). I think that it’s best to come here for lunch as it was almost deserted at dinner time and only a pathetic amount of meat was left and the wan tan mee seemed to be just warm and not heated up enough. Perhaps they cater more to the office crowd.
I think I have to continue my search for the best wan tan mee. Perhaps to the reopened Kok Kee Wan Tan Mee one day.
The coffeeshop is rather sprawling and seems to be in it’s original state. Quite a rare sight in Singapore where there’s always a new restaurant or hip cafe taking over. But after reading this post but Nathanael I guess it was another old coffeeshop that was taken over 8 years ago but the decor retained.
As we didn’t quite know the location we walked quite a distance from the Chinatown Complex Market to get here. The area seems to be gentrified with fancy bars and restaurants intermingled with old coffeeshops.
6 Keong Saik Rd, 089114
Opens: 11am – 8pm (but it’s better to go for lunch as I think the meats run out as early as 6.30pm, and it’s closed on Sundays and Public Holidays)
