Now staying in an Airbnb apartment near Novena I had to explore Balestier Road with its Chicken rice and Bak Kut Teh restaurants. I stopped at a Chinese restaurant probably enticed by the appetising food picture displays and maybe the Tiger Beer sign!!
The manager recommended their special for the day Pork Ribs with sweet chilli sauce. And for $8 you couldn't complain - very delicious crisp tender and spicy - the Tiger beer certainly complemented them as well

This is a nice small restaurant on Balestier Road, which I visit quite regularly. It serves a mixture of different types of Chinese food so there is a decent variety.
Why I like this place? There is no pretence and the food is served quickly. They take your order and within 5 minutes it's usually on your table.
The best value on the menu are the mixed rice dishes. You get a portion of meat (say stir fried pork, sweet and sour chicken etc etc) and it is served with rice for $6.
When you see a line outside the Founders Bak Ku Teh restaurant a couple of doors up the road, this is worth a try.
