Well there are crusty pizzas for sharing to Crabmeat linguine, Seafood Paella, to an array selection of sandwiches & wraps and desserts liked a good ‘ol homemade cheesecake to complete the meal.

The Plain Jane Meatballs (5pcs at $4) are available in 4 flavours: Beef, Chicken, Seafood and Vegetarian. Although we did liked their crispy crab balls which was perfectly rested on a bed of luscious chili crab sauce (served with man tou!), we must say their new on the menu – the appetizing Squid Ink Linguine topped with spiced oven-roasted squid was a dazzling delicacy. If you have a taste for fancy squid ink pastas, you won’t want to miss this!

Finally  lets bring on the all time local favourite. You will never go wrong with the formally famously known – Sin Kee Chicken Rice from Margret Drive. Not only you won’t be disappointed by their poached chicken nor its authentic fragrant rice, we also highly recommend to savour the real zest – by dipping in their freshly sliced ginger and scallion dip to accentuate the flavour of the chicken and rice. It will get addictive, warning you!
