My opinion:

This kopitiam stall sells traditional Singapore vegetarian food including fried bee hoon and mixed vegetable rice. For this 2016 food review, I have tried their rice meal for $4.60. My food items were green vegetables, mapo tofu, mock “chicken cutlets” and mock “sweet sour pork”. Honestly, this was the most expensive Singapore food court vegetarian meal that I have ever tasted.

Green vegetables were chewy, mild tasting and mixed nicely with the rice. Mapo tofu had an awkward artificial taste and its sauce was too thin and watery.

Although the mock meat items looked almost like the real stuff, their taste and texture gave them away. They were bland, dry and suffered from the same mild tasting problem of the mapo tofu. Certain portions of the rice were poorly cooked and actually stuck together.

In conclusion, the food here was average tasting and expensive. The owners are highly advised to add more sauce to the food items and review the rice production process. If you are not a mixed vegetable rice or vegetarian food fan, I will strongly suggest you give this stall a miss.
