Beano - Tanjong Pagar
Location: Blk 6, Everton Park, #01-16
Opening Hours: Daily 8.00am - 8.30pm
D24 Durian Pudding, which was rich and thick, and had a strong and aromatic durian flavour. Of course, if you're not on the durian bandwagon, then this will not appeal to you. But personally (as a durian addict), this was incredibly delicious for me. The Beano Beancurd and Beano Soymilk were both very smooth and had a nice rich soya flavour.
Durian Pudding $1.00. 9/10
Soy Milk $1.10. 7/10
Original Beancurd $1.50. 7/10
Conclusion - It is small family run shops, hidden in dilapidated HDB's, that still are a lasting reminder that Singapore does have some culture remaining. I always have a lingering regret, that I never lived in Singapore 30-40 years ago, when the way of life was much slower, the amount of people lesser, and the country had much more of an identity. Therefore, visiting places like Beano, give me that satisfaction of seeing somewhere that wouldn't be out of place in 1970's Singapore. Of course, this is supported by delicious food - Best of which is definitely the durian pudding.
