Ci Xin Vegetarian Food - Kovan
Ci Xin Vegetarian Food
Location: Blk 32, Defu Lane 10, Soon Soon Lai Eating House
Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 6.00am-1.30pm. Closed Sunday
Mee Siam, and so that is what I ordered. This was a well cooked mee siam overall, with a nice amount of ingredients inside (I particularly loved the cubes of tofu). I thought that the soup/gravy base could have been a little thicker (it was very watery), but for just $2.50 it would be criminal to complain too much.
Price: $2.50. 7/10
Conclusion - Ci Xin is a stall that has stood the test of time, and has a positive following from the workers and individuals living in the Defu Lane area. This entire coffee shop is worth visiting, as this old design can barely be found in Singapore these days. With Singapore so concerned with making everywhere so brand new and squeaky clean, it is nice to escape that pretentious falseness and head to a place like this, which has heart and identity.
