One of the things this coffee shop is known for is the Hainanese Pau or Pau Hainan. The dough is so soft and fluffy that it sticks to the base paper. Unlike other paus where some people like to peel off the outer skin, with this pau there is hardly any skin to peel. With the 10 varieties, both sweet and savoury, try the Chicken Curry – RM1.30; Char Siew – RM1.30; pumpkin (labu) - RM1 or the kaya, tau sar (red bean), tau yong (lotus paste), coconut, butter and vegetable, and sometimes even durian. Prices from RM1 to RM1.30.

The Wonton Mee stall has double-boiled Herbal Chicken where the chicken is so tender it falls off the bone. With noodles, it is priced at RM5. Regular noodles and wonton is RM3 and other accompaniments are char siew – RM3.70, black-pepper ribs – RM4, mushroom chicken feet – RM5 and dry chicken curry – RM3.80. Wonton is 5 for RM1 and shui kao is 80 sen each.

The signature dish of the restaurant is the Chiu Pie Sang Mien – RM6 and Wat Tan Hor – RM7.

Western Food has more than 20 dishes on the menu, try the Chicken Chop Rice at RM5.50. The Coffee is good – RM1.60.

Go at breakfast time for the Pork Mee as the stall is packing up by lunchtime. The prices range from RM3.80 to RM5; yong liew is 60 sen each.
