Westlake 西湖小吃

I first knew Westlake through the words of mouth from my friend for the Kong Bak Pau is so popular. I visited their kiosk in Jurong Point and it left me a very deep impression for the Kong Bak Pau was so delicious.


The place was rather unique as it is located among the HDB estate. Interior furnishing was simple and place was well kept with bright lighting.

A combination of 2 types of Tofu on the plate, letting us enjoy the best of both worlds.  The dish was served with 6 tofu cubes drench in savoury sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. The combination includes a slab of deep fried Tofu too topped with minced meat, preserved vegetables and dried shrimps.

Here's the reason why we were there, none other than their braised pork with pau. The slab of thoroughly braised pork that soaked up the goodness of the gravy was delicate and tender.

Look at these glistering pieces of Pork. They were so well braised, fragrant, a good balance of saltiness with sweetness.

Sandwiched the pork belly in the pau with lettuce and a stalk of coriander to elevate its taste. The plain pillow soft pau compliments the savoury braised pork, just exactly what I had a few years back from their kiosk.

They have another version to offer, Spanish Iberico Braised Pork with Pau 西班牙黑猪扣肉包 which costs $32.

If you enjoy the traditional flat yellow noodle, you will probably love this Claypot Hokkien Noodles that carry some nostalgia. Pork slices, squid, vegetables and pork belly as well as the noodle soaking up the sauce.

We also ordered the Popiah to try out since its on the menu. The popiah was bigger in size that the usual ones we had, taste wise its pretty standard.

The Yam Basket or Yam Ring is a popular dish when it comes to Chinese cuisine and also a staple in the Cze Char Restaurant. It is a Singaporean dish consist of a deep fried ring made up of mashed taro filled with separately stir-fried ingredients like cashewnuts, mushrooms, green pepper, chicken etc.

The Spring Onion Pancake seemed overdone to us. It was kind of too brown and dry. Not the crowd's favourite among. us.

If you enjoy the old school vibes of a Chinese Restaurant and food in Singapore, you would most probably want to visit Westlake for it.
