THE Pun Chun restaurant is a venerable 70-year-old establishment that’s well-known for its chicken biscuits and ngap pei meen (duck thigh noodles). Served with egg noodles, the steamed duck soup is cooked with Chinese herbs such as wolfberries (kei chee), pak kei, wai san, tong sum and dried longan. The herbal flavour is light and elegant, and the duck is steamed to flavourful tenderness.

The kopitiam has been run by the Khong family since 1938 and is now under the care of the matriarch, Chan Yoke Ooi.

Chan said the herbal duck recipe was taught to her father-in-law, Khong Hin, by a sifu back in China.

Apart from the duck noodles, the wantan noodles with plump dumplings and the taro puffs (woo kok) are also very good. But there is more: fresh batches of traditional Chinese pastries such as wife biscuits (loh poh peang), mooncakes and char siew pau are brought out throughout the day. The sha ket ma (sweet pastry made from flour, sugar and eggs) is considered one of the best around.

If that is not enough, venture outside to the five-foot way for a selection of local fruits and petai.
