When you have meal there, not to forget to order O-gao (Kopi-O). Hainanese black coffee is unique in taste and aroma. Too bad, during that moment, my caffeine intake already exceeded quota, thus no coffee.


If you wish to eat there, be there earlier than usual lunch hour, otherwise you will see the whole restaurant crowded and filled up.
