One of the last bastions for village-style dining in the city, Union Farm Eating House has been serving its simple but popular fare of paper-wrapped chicken (纸包鸡) using its original recipe which has not been changed for nearly 50 years. Other staples included blanched egg noodles tossed in oyster sauce & topped with choy-sum vegetables.
But the piece de resistance remained the little parcels of marinated chicken, redolent of ginger, Shaoxing wine, oyster sauce & ground pepper, slightly sweetish.
Union Farm Eating House's setting was incredibly rustic, considering its location on Clementi Road, in-between Maju Camp and Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
