Chin Chin Eating House


Situated along the shop houses of Purvis Street, Chin Chin Eating House facade is one of the most humble looking among her neighbouring modern eateries. Astounded by the crowd during dinner time, we walked into the eating place and tried to grab a seat. Lo and behold, there was a table for 2, just nice!

Besides having good pork chop, they do sell Haianese Chicken Rice, Claypot Mutton Soup which I believe had been drawing the hordes thus its full house on a saturday night. The restaurant interior was simple and decent with hanging ceiling fans at each sector above. Chinese Lanterns were seen hanging from the florescent lights too.

The Crowd


Haianese Pork Chop, being one of its Must Try on their Menu had been awarded for its Best Food for 2011 and 2012.

Green Book Awards for Best Food 2011/2012

It's not quite frequent we come across this dish on the menu moreover it had won the award. Having prepared similar dish, I would say that it was quite good but not really what I would expected. The dish was served with few potatoes wedges and boiled green peas with a bowl of tomato gravy.

Hainanese Pork Chop with sauce - $6

The piece of lean meat was fried to golden brown with crumbs coated evenly at its exterior. It was cut into smaller portions equally and was served.

We pour the bowl of diluted tomato ketchup all over the sauce and enjoyed this Haianese fare.




Braised Ee Mee tasted better than average. It's black braised sauce was aromatic and noodles was generously drenched, a little more would have the gravy overflowed.

Having tried only 2 dishes, I would definitely be back for more when chance come!
