The residents of Lorong Lew Lian have just earned themselves a brand new kopitiam. Just opened to the public on 3 Feb 2023, Kimly Coffeeshop features 9 food stalls and is located at the corner of Block 3.

I spotted a stall called Huff & Puff, which were the exact words the big bad wolf used in the ‘3 little pigs’ children’s story. They specialise in handmade pastries that are freshly-baked every hour— not those factory-bought nonsense.

Their offerings include Portuguese Egg Tarts (S$1.80), Chicken Char Siew Baked Buns (S$1.80) and Potato-Egg Curry Puffs (S$2).

I was impressed that they could churn out loads of homemade goods in the small kitchen space of theirs. They have future plans to expand their menu which includes cakes and other baked goods.

Hua Zai Hong Kong Style Roasted Delight is known for their selections of roast meats like roast pork, roast duck and char siew. Indulge in their signature Special Mala Noodle (S$5) which is known to be 3 times spicier than normal.

Currently, they’re offering an opening promotion for their Roasted Duck Breast Rice, which is selling for just S$1 till 28 Feb 2023. That’s a really good deal!

Craving for some Western delights? Check out Ministry Of Pasta And Grill, which has a whopping 27 varieties of pasta on their menu! One particular flavour that caught my eye was the Devil’s Pasta (S$8.90), which has ghost pepper, chilli, garlic, prawns and olive oil in it.

If you’re visiting in a big group, order the King Kong Pasta (S$28) which gives u 1kg of pasta of your choice (aglio olio, carbonara, mushroom cream, bacon aglio, beef bolognese or chicken bolognese).

The stall also has other crowd favourites like Fish & Chip (S$7.90), Corn Rice & Chicken Cutlet (S$7.50) and Hainanese Pork Chop (S$7.90).
