Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe (新旺香港茶餐厅) @ Northpoint, Yishun [Singapore]

Six years ago, Xin Wang was a new entrant to a special segment of the food industry known simply as those Hong Kong cafes that offer a huge variety of food, beverages and open till the wee hours.

I had a great dining experience then at its first outlet in Marina Square and did not have the chance to visit again since my last visit to its branch in Kovan Mall. 

C'mon, you can't blame me! Singapore is a food paradise and taste buds do change as we age! Not to mention the hundreds of restaurants, hawker stalls etc that open each year in Singapore! 

Anyway, the family wanted somewhere near home for lunch and we finally decided on Xin Wang in Northpoint as it serves one item Jovyn needed; porridge. The following is what the adults had:

Pork Chop Burger
After you have been eating all those ingredient-rich burgers from reputable burger joints, such a plain burger doesn't really appeal to me. Having said that, my sister liked this pork chop bun very much! 

French Toast with Peanut Butter
I was expecting a French Toast with peanut butter INSIDE and not OUTSIDE! French Toast done in the above style has always been disappointing as the middle would be just simple bread with no excitement. Kim Gary's French Toast wins hands down.

Steamed Creamy Custard Buns
Nowadays, whenever i see jin sha or liu sha bao on the menu, i must order it! 

Looking like a pair of hard boiled eggs, the thickness of the dough was too hard to stomach. I am not known to have a small mouth and the fact that one bite was not enough to catch a glimpse of the yellowish liquid said a lot about the thickness.

The colour was a vibrant yellow (like egg yolk); the taste was no doubt sweet-savoury albeit too watery in my opinion. Would i come back for this? Maybe.

Chicken in A Basket
My craving that day was fried chicken! Although i have not heard nor read any review on Xin Wang's deep fried chicken, i could not resist ordering three pieces.

Served piping hot, they were surprisingly not too bad. However, the seasonings were not comparable to KFC. Simply put; they were just normal deep fried chickens that managed to satisfy my craving.
