After a 8km leisure walk, we went to one of our rest stops at Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe along Upper Serangoon Road. The cafe opens until 3am in the morning.
I ordered a serving of soft-boiled eggs that went well with dark soy sauce and pepper. I broke the eggs, drizzled the condiments and stirred the mixture evenly. The eggs had runny and curd-like white and the yolk was runny. The texture was superb. (Food rating: 3/5)
Chicken Macaroni Soup was quite a disappointment. Expecting the noodle soup would taste better than instant noodles but it was identical to instant noodles with ingredients. The ingredients were good but the broth tasted as if it was made from chicken stock cube. I could not finish the noodles. (Food rating: 1.5/5)
Egg noodles with Luncheon Meat and Fried Egg was ordinary and served as a good staple. As for the taste, I felt that it is just okay. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
Prawn Paste Chicken was chicken cubes coated with prawn paste and flour being they were deep fried to reddish brown colour. The dish came with a bowl of sweet and sour chilli sauce. I would recommend sharing the food as I got queasy after the second piece. It was too salty and oily for my liking. (Food rating: 2.5/5)
Of course, not forgetting the beverage and dessert. The Milk Tea was too sweet for my liking, however, there was a nice buttery milky aroma in the tea. I had to add water into the beverage so that I can enjoy the beverage. The Mango Shaved Ice on the other hand was huge. The taste was so-so. The mango bits were small topped with mango flavoured ice cream. The mango syrup was so-so as well. (Food rating: 2/5)
