Empty bowls at Face to Face Noodle House

Empty bowls at Face to Face Noodle House. Our kids can be picky eaters, but they finished every last piece of morsel at this restaurant.


Family friendly restaurants
For the record, we seldom share empty bowls during our reviews.

But nothing makes parents more happy then kids enjoying their meals!

Order your noodles at the counter. The menu is actually quite limited, less than 10 main dishes. But we heard all are good.

Face to Face Noodle House is from Malaysia, and they are known as 面对面 too.


To quote from Face to Face Noodle House “With a noodle recipe boasting over 100 years of heritage, 30 outlets in Malaysia, and more than 2 million bowls served each year, Face to Face Noodle House is known for its authentic Sarawak noodles”.

The mince pork and noodle messed well together with the other ingredients to give a favourable texture.


This traditional Sarawak Kolo Mee is always my favourite. Just cannot resist the mee-kia look alike, so delectable. The char siew 🙂


The noodle portions are more than enough for one person 🙂
Pan mian (4) and anchovies anyone?

Smashed the “onsen” egg and mix well, this was a first for us and we love it.


Our table was full of delicious noodles. Dry, Soup, Chili, we were hungry. When we were there, we noticed the restaurant is popular with families too.

In fact, Face to Face Noodle House sometimes cater to kids with special non-spicy kids meal (example Month of May and Mother’s Day).

For the Month of June, a child (under 7 years old) eats free with every paying adult Yeah!

If kids have a choice, they might only extra oh-so-good side dishes :p

We are not kidding, our favourite side dishes are the Bacon Cheese Balls and the Stuffed Cheese Scallops 🙂

Thank you for the invite, Face to Face Noodle House. Our family will be backed for more noodles (and side dishes!).  More details and promotions on their Website and Facebook .

Family friendly cafe at Ah Dong Teh House

[ Sponsored ]

The first thing which capture our eyes at Ah Dong Teh House are the wall decorations. We love the cute cartoon animations, it brighten up the venue and brings a smile to customers.

Ah Dong Teh House is a halal certified Hong Kong style bistro (with a local flavour), but the menu has options to suit everyone.

Even the Ah Dong menu cover looks cute. Maggi noodles and (chicken) luncheon meat are popular with my kids 🙂

Wok, Local, cuisine, western, seafood, or hot plates?
If you cannot make a decision, go for platters.

We heard the curry noodle is consistently a hot favourite (sometimes sold out before dinner)

A wide selection of beverages and desserts to choose from. I spotted Yuan Yang 鸳鸯 too!


XO Carrot Cake is the bomb, our favourite dish for the night. Take note it  is a little bit spicy. We love the chunks of chicken luncheon meat with carrot cake (unique texture), and the coating of floss.

Chicken Noodle Gong Zai Mian 公仔面), aka fast food from Hong Kong 🙂

Fried sotong (squid) you tiao for starter.


Xin and her fried rice. There is always something for everyone.


Our “Meat Lover” platter, with huge chunks of delicious (ok, we were a little bit guilty) turkey hams! Meat lovers rejoice, the seafood platter can feed 3 to 4 easily, and looks tantalising too.Ah Dong Teh House


Good venue and value for family gathering, big portion for the whole family, value for money and tasty food too. We ordered too much food!

Ah Dong Teh House was crowded with families when we visited. It is a popular haunt for those living in Sengkang and Punggol.

Root Beer float with Ah Dong Curry chicken noodle (crazy combination!) , but Wei loves it. He loves the spicy and tender chicken.

Take note curry chicken  noodle will likely sold out before 7pm. We were lucky to grab the last bowl of the day.


We always have a compartment for desserts and sweet stuffs. Pancake with extra dosage of marshmallows 🙂

Xin diy a ice kacang for us! Please go EASY on Gula Melaka and condensed milk haha. The kids had fun “colouring the ice mountain!

Did you know that Birthday boy and girl can get a free Ice Kachang 🙂

Steam Box dining, Healthy Food Fun preparation

[ Sponsored ]

Steam Box dining (蒸好食), love the Chinese name (which rhymes like 真好吃 ). No claypot, nor steamboat but Steam Box.

Steam Box’s “steam-potting” is a new concept in Singapore, and this is a trend from Hong Kong. The food are freshly steamed not boiled, and there is a pot of porridge below where all the essence (sauce) dripped into.

Kids busy eating, take note of the different colour plates, which indicate different “steaming” duration.

Order anything, everything. We heard the Eight Treasures porridge is popular, but we chose a safer option (less herbal) for the kids, seafood porridge. Dim sums are available too.

If in doubt, follow Chef’s recommendation.

Steam duration, go by the colour plates (refer first photo), set the timer. We were not sure how we should start first, but after one or two rounds, the kids took over the food steaming and ordering.

Before we forget, condiments and seasoning to suit every taste bud, unlimited serving 🙂

Endless activities, kids take turn to place the food inside the tray.

Sometimes we argue over what to cook first, a fun family cooking (I meant steaming) experience.

Every time the “timer” counts down, we would eagerly lift the lid for more delicious treats. The bacon is delightful, sweet and tender not greasy at all.

Because all the food are steamed, it is less oily and suitable for everyone in the family. We would strongly recommend the fresh seafood.

Juicy prawns are ready, guess who peeled for the lucky kids!

Mushrooms for the adults, yummy!

Steam Box venue is spacious and we were quite surprised that the steam did not stick to us. There is an overhead fan extracting excess steam.

Tuck in everyone, we love everything on our table 🙂

Where did all the essence go?

Video (Youtube link) : Check out the goodness under the lid 🙂

Our seafood porridge has been brewing slowly, richness from seafood, bacon harvested.

We enjoyed our sweet porridge and lunch 🙂
Thank you Steam Box for the Fun and Healthy dining.

Healthy food option, reasonable pricing and friendly staff, we can understand why Steam Box is popular with families.
