Power Coffeehouse; Air-conditioned local delights kopitiam cafe

Power Coffeehouse, a quaint cafe situated in the now defunct To-gather cafe, cooks up a storm of all your local favorites such as Claypot Curry Chicken, Claypot Chi Kut Teh (Chicken version of Bak Kut Teh), Laksa Hokkien Mee, Nasi Goreng, Kaya Toast etc! The furnishing are done simply resembling that of an old school canteen. Price were pretty reasonable for the portion. There seems to be some collaboration with To-gather cafe, their menu also incorporate some of the western and pasta dishes by To-gather.

You can choose to add an additional mini side to your mains for just $2.50. We went with their Battered Fish Sticks and Ngoh Hiang. Personally i find the battered fish a little more on the floury side, the battered is not thick but there’s just a lot of air space between the fish and batter. Ngoh Hiang on the other hand was very meaty, with a good crunchy texture.

I got myself the Laksa Hokkien Mee ($8.90). It comes with 3 big prawns and generous amount of shredded cucumber. The gravy was rather lemak, but missing a little on the fragrance from the coconut and sambal. You need to add the extra chilli to it to get that extra kick!

Unlike the typical dessert you might be expecting like maybe Chendol, Ice Kachang etc, we decided to get their Signature Muah Chee ($3.50)! You must have it while it’s hot! It’s so soft and chewy and well coated with peanut and sugar. Not overly sweet and with the good balance of that nuttiness. A nice dessert to bring you down the good old days memory lane.

If you’re looking for something more local and traditional at the same time fuss free but with air-condition under our tropical weather conditions, check out Power Coffeehouse!
