Newly-renovated BK Eating House at Tampines has mala, western food & CKT till late

Less than 2 months ago, I wrote about the opening of a newly-renovated coffeeshop at Tampines Street 81. Happening just 3 blocks away, yet another kopitiam, BK Eating House at Block 824 officially reopened on 2 Jun 2023. The people living in the area are such a lucky bunch!
