Again in 2019, there have been some information articles reporting on probably Singapore’s least expensive kopi-o — simply 50 cents every, at Meals Paradise Meals Courtroom in Sengkang. Positioned in a small hawker centre with solely round 10 stalls at Jalan Benaan Kepal, is one other contender. Kopi-o from the anonymous stall was once priced at 40 cents, however after the rise in costs of milk and occasional, the uncle has bumped up the worth by simply 10 cents. What amazes me is that regardless of the stall’s 54 years of historical past, uncle has barely hiked up the costs. Even with others pushing up their costs accordingly to market modifications and inflation, uncle has stored costs extremely, and surprisingly, inexpensive.

The pleasant uncle wakes up within the wee hours of the morning (round 4 am) and reaches the stall at 615. He will get the eggs and occasional able to serve his first clients from as early as 7 within the morning. It’s a one-man present right here, and uncle opens store on daily basis, Monday to Sunday, with out fail. Whereas there are 2 espresso stalls within the hawker centre (one on every finish), it’s clear that uncle’s is extra widespread with its fixed move of regulars and longer queues.

A kopi, toast and egg set is priced affordably at $2.40. Every toast is grilled over charcoal, and a pleasant smokiness is obvious in each chunk. I normally prefer to dip my toast in eggs, however the eggs right here had been on the much less runny aspect.

Don’t anticipate uncle’s very cheap teh and kopi to be extraordinarily fragrant, however you possibly can positively anticipate a fairly good normal. I discovered the drinks to be fairly aromatic.

Come by on your morning cuppa earlier than you head off for work, and maintain a lookout for the big tree proper beside the stall! The uncle planted it proper as he began the stall, and the tree has been “watching over him” for 54 years (and counting!)
