Tangs Island Cafe
Does anyone know what's good at Island Cafe upstairs at Tangs? I vaguely remember I had something decent there a few years ago, but just can't recall what. Momo blogged a nice Sio Bak (roast pork) which looks pretty good. On a recent trip there, my friend had the crayfish laksa (S$13). But he found it lacking in flavour. Not salty enough, and the curry was a bit diluted.
I can never resist Penang fried kway teow, but the ones in Singapore are a gamble. This one (S$12) is nowhere near what I was hoping for. It's closer to the sweetish, gooey Singapore version. And though it doesn't look like much, it'll sit in your stomach for the rest of the day. Serves us right for being too lazy to walk elsewhere for lunch.
