Drinks: Iced Sour Plum ($2.50) and Warm Home-made Barley ($2.20)

The drinks available at Attap House range from the traditional Coffee or Tea, Honey Lemon Tea, Sour Plum Drink, Iced Lemon Tea or Home-made Barley.

Although there is the option available of having your drinks either hot or cold, do note that for certain drinks an additional charge of +30¢ is required when served cold.

Otah Bun ($2.50/$5 - set meal)

Do not belittle this small slice of bun and otah that you see.

The portion of food (as seen above) was taken so as to showcase the inner fluffiness of the bread and the thick slab of otah given as well as the gracious amount of seafood placed into it — check out the whole prawn used! The actual portion of the bun and otah is actually almost the size of a person's palm!

When consumed together with a small slice of butter, one will be hit by waves of savoury spice, sweetness and buttery fragrance.

Assam Fish with White Rice ($5.80)

To make this dish, the choice of fish steak used is dory fish.

I personally love the assam sauce which had an adequate balance of spice and sourness, however I can't say the same for the fish as it had a distinct fishiness — most likely due to the choice of fish used.

Nonetheless a commendable effort for creating a fantastic assam sauce that would go well with white rice and it provided a tangy spicy taste to the otherwise bland brinjal and okra.

Pork Chop Sambal Fried Rice ($6.80)

Thick slices of meat coated in a savoury black sauce? YES PLEASE!

The pork chop might come across as being a bit too salty when consumed alone, thus it is best eaten together with a mouthful of the accompanying sambal fried rice!

Satay Mee Hoon ($6.80)

With its satay sauce made from a mixture of both peanuts and cashew nuts, one would be amazed by the tinge of cashew nuts' sweetness and aromatic fragrance!

The sauce is less oily and less salty as compared to those that you have in coffee-shops and hawker centres, thus making it a healthier and available option to satisfy your craving for Satay Mee Hoon!


Cashew Fried Rice With Fresh Chicken Breast ($6.50)

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE DISH OF THE LOT.

Yes I know that this dish cannot be any more simple, but it is always the simplest things which are the most pronounced.

If you have read my Instagram caption for this plate of fried rice, you would know that this dish reminds me of my mom. This is how my mom cooks her fried rice. It tastes savoury and has a little bit of spice from a sprinkle of pepper.

The fresh bits of chicken breast meat adds a whole new dimension to the dish because it provides texture and the savoury-sweetness of fresh chicken meat is incomparable to any unhealthy preserved meat sold in supermarkets.


Braised Hokkien Mee ($5.90)

If you have never ever had this before... I'M JUDGING YOU. What have you been eating at Tze Char stalls?!

Braised Hokkien Mee is a traditional dish that is in most Asian menus, and this one from Attap House originated from an old lady who has been cooking hokkien mee for over 50 years of her life.

Watch the video below to learn how you can replicate this dish back at home!

Bobo Cha Cha ($3.00)

Upon being served this dessert, I could smell the fragrance coming from the use of coconut milk and pandan leaves.

This dessert is not overly-sweet and the cubes of taro and purple/yellow sweet potatoes provide great texture and taste to this bowl of traditional Asian dessert.


Waffle with kaya and peanut butter ($3.00)

I highly recommend this dessert, and I cannot wait for their kaya and peanut butter jam to be sold in jars! This is the best kaya and peanut butter jam that I have ever had in my life.

Forget about how Skippy has always been promoting its peanut butter jam to be the smoothest that you will ever have... you have never had smooth peanut butter until you have tried this one from Attap House!

Waffle with ice cream ($4.80)


Rating: 4/5

My two cents:

Attap House is a local homegrown eatery started by Mr Edmund Koh and the restaurant begun its operations in July 2015. The local restaurant was created with the hope of bringing back nostalgic memories from the 1970s-1980s.

This casual dining area is able to contain 80-seaters with both its indoor and outdoor seating areas. The design of the eatery included aspects that would remind of the kampung days — from wooden tables and rattan chairs as the choice of furnitures used, to straw mats used as their wallpaper, and tungsten-bulbs as the choice of lighting which brings back memories of how those were the only lightbulbs available back in the old days.

The restaurant's menu serves a variety of Asian- and Nyonya- inspired food and beverages, all created in the kitchen by Executive Chef Mr Marco Ong. The Executive Chef has had 16 years of international experience under his belt and strives for authenticity with every dish produced from his kitchen.

Attap House is suitable for office workers (working in the vicinity) to drop by for a quick and satisfying lunch or to take a tea break. It is also great for families of big and small to gather together for a nice breakfast or scrumptious dinner.

For breakfast/tea, individuals can choose from the available options of Homemade Otah Toast or freshly-made Peanut Butter and Nyonya Kaya with either toast or waffle.

I LOVE THE PEANUT BUTTER AND NYONYA KAYA JAM AT ATTAP HOUSE! I have never had any jam that tasted as smooth and creamy before!

The peanut butter jam at Attap House is made in-house with an added natural sweetness combined with a light fragrance due to the introduction of cashew nuts into the jam. As for the nyonya kaya, it is also made in-house with a stronger punch of caramelised sugar due to the addition of gula melaka.

The signature main course(s) at Attap House are their Satay Mee Hoon, Braised Hokkien Noodle, Pork Chop Sambal Fried Rice and my personal favourite Cashew Fried Rice with Fresh Chicken Breast.

As an effort to fill more Singaporean tummies with their delish food, Attap House has implemented their own delivery service* which is available from 9am to 11am, and 2pm to 7pm. Call 9052 2669 to make your order!

*Do note that delivery is free only if the order is above $30!
