Kedai Makanan & Miniman Big Tree Kopitiam 大树下加啡店

We were told that dinner had been planned for us during our trip to Pontian and I'm quite excited as it was "omakase" style from the cook. We headed to this run-down-looking Kampung Atap at Kedai Makanan & Miniman Big Tree Kopitiam and walked in. Whilst walking in, I felt that I kind of zoomed back into the past as the environment and furnishing was so looked alike to what we saw on TV in the older days.

The first dish was served and I'm quite surprised to be served with cockles as I had not enjoyed such a dish from the shell for a long time. Cockles are becoming more expensive because of pollution and over-harvesting. Such a dish was not very common in Singapore. 

It was perfectly cooked with the right texture and dipping them into the chilli with soya sauce completes such delicacy. 


Otak was served subsequently. It was mildly spicy and quite tasty, at least still better than what we had in one of the Johor Bahru Night Markets.


A reminisce of homely taste with prawns and Instant Noodles mixed in its savoury black gravy and sweet-tasting egg.

The Chicken with Wine was scrumptious! The combination taste of herbal and wine was simply heavenly for they hit me at the right spot.  The broth was addictive and I just could not resist myself sipping one mouth after another.

The Fried Sotong was delicious. The Sotong was coated with a layer of batter and deep fried.

The Teochew Steamed Fish was appetizing with fermented bean, salted plums

We had the Asam Fish, love its tangy Asam gravy that was so appetizing coupled with cuts of tomatoes and lady's fingers. The Fish head was fresh with tender meat and the dish was wiped up quickly.

The chilli crab was generally cooked with egg and the spicy level was close to none. The gravy tasted sweet and moreish.

For Pontian was said to be famous for its seafood, I must agree that what we had were fresh tasting and though simple, they satisfied our tastebuds.
