Sin Hoi Eating House on The East Coast Road: family favourite
Simply known as Joe’s to us.. but sadly with Joe leaving, it has now gone back to its original name – Sin Hoi Eating House @ East Coast Road. Located at 187 East Coast Road. It is a cracker. One of our all-time favourites and most visited Zhi Char restaurant. We have been here with countless family and friends, it’s seriously so good and amazing value.
There is no doubt of how good this restaurant is, just look at the fact that every table is taken and people are spilling out onto the street. Literally. They have inside and outside seating, but the outside is a must as you get this vibrant experience, of the hustle of the street as well as access to some of the very best food in Singapore in my reckoning.
Sin Hoi Eating House @ East Coast Road is ranked in TripAdvisor is No266 out of 6,944 restaurants. Not bad at all for a quasi-hawker AKA Zhi Char.
It’s one of those restaurants that is about 70/30 in terms of locals to Angmo – another great sign to me of food quality. It’s also family, family, family. We ate there recently – 5 adults and 2 kids. The table was filled with the food below.
So my friends if I were you I would make a bee-line to this place, it truly is worth it. Sin Hoi Eating House @ East Coast Road. Say hi to Joe’s family for me when you do go to eat. This is a die-die must-try joint. It’s a must. Likely we’ll see you there, and if you do go you are 100% certain to – ENJOY!!!
