Staffed by friendly expats, this nondescript yet spruce Singaporean/Malaysian gaff must be one of the top ‘cheap eats’ in the West End. It looks, sounds & tastes pretty authentic, & has become a hub for overseas students & tourists after a taste of home. If you’re new to this cuisine, a single visit barely lets you scratch the menu: try a wholesome staple such as nasi goreng or chicken nasi lemak, char kuay teow (a rich noodle dish with soy sauce) or spicy beef rendang. Apart from Singapore chilli crab, there’s precious little over £8, & the appetisers are particularly good value (soon kuey dumplings stuffed with chicken, prawn & turnip are recommended). Skip wine in favour of beer, teh tarik (strong tea made with condensed milk) or Milo malted chocolate.
