Hard to mess up but still not nearly as good as roti canai should be.

Scrambled egg with dried turnip ($2.99).

Sadly, dessert is not so great at Green Island.

You're better off ending with some frozen yogurt a few doors down.


  1. i like their chewy noodles too and the sizzling the egg dish pops!

  2. That's a good lookin' spread, Rivers! Love chewy rice cakes!

  3. Definitely reliable for sure! I've only seen it improve over the years. I really like their oxtails with lily root, and the pork belly with boy choy isn't bad either.

  4. Yum! And now I'm craving for Chinese food thanks to your pictures.
