Ever since Raffles closed down, elainew has had trouble finding any good Singaporean places—until now. The new and awesome little place that has satisfied her yearnings is Kopitiam.

The highlight so far is definitely the amazing chicken rice, she says. The rice is flavored nicely; the chicken is wonderfully tender, and comes with minced ginger and hot sauce. Curry chicken is mild but still pretty good; it comes with a nice broth. There are also neat little sets, like lunch set A: toast, freshly made kaya, soft-cooked eggs, and coffee.

Great service, too. The owners are friendly, superattentive, and willing to change the restaurant up to meet the demands of their patrons.
