Singapore - Mee Siam @ Chinta Manis Peranakan Cafe

Chinta Manis (mieaning "Sweet Love") is a newish Peranakan cafe which served up one of the meanest, melt-your-tongue, spicy-licious "Mee Siam" in Singapore. Rice noodles garnished with fresh shrimps, plump tofu cubes and hard-boiled egg, bathed in a tamarind-chilli-spice sauce. Definitely up there with some of the best Mee Siam I'd had in Singapore :-)
Dessert was "kueh dadar", a moist pandanus-flavored crepe rolled around moist dessicated coconut-brown sugar filling, and "kueh seri muka", pressed glutinous rice cake topped with coconut-pandan-egg custard.

I see that you tried their Nyonya Mee Siam which has the "dry" preparation. You should also try the Curry Mee Siam which comes with more gravy, and is very good.
Anyway, better enjoy it when you can because MacDonald's House will be pulled down soon to make way for the construction of the King Albert Park MRT station, part of the new Downtown line. So sad.
