Wishbone

We headed over to Bukit Timah Plaza on Saturday morning to check out the new FairPrice Finest. Overrated, in my opinion. It does have an interesting bakery and patisserie section, but for posh ingredients like Maldon sea salt, you still have to go to Cold Storage Jelita or Jason’s.

We had lunch at Wishbone, an old school restaurant at B2 which has been around for absolutely eons. It’s a family restaurant serving traditional Hainanese food and Chinese takes on Western food. A bit like Han’s, really. A had the chicken rice, and I had the curry chicken.



They weren’t the best chicken rice or curry chicken I’ve ever had, but I like the whole vibe of the place. And while we were too full that day, they do good ice cream sundaes too.

They weren’t very crowded compared to the rest of the eating places in Bukit Timah Plaza, but the fact that they’re still around after so many years means I guess they must be doing something right.

Blast from the past! I used to come here way back in the day and I’m happy to see it’s still around. It’s smaller now and the ice cream parlor has merged with the restaurant but the food has pretty much stayed the same. The rice and soup were very good even if the chicken was only so-so. Best thing about the place is still the desserts. Milkshake here is under $3 and they’ve got other cool desserts with a local twist.

Agree the food is not the best but I love the place!! Just for the nostalgic feeling!! Always eat there during the rare times i go to Bt Timah Plaza. It was meant to become our regular haunt in future had we moved to Raintree but guess its not to be....
