Widely known for their Mee Siam and Satay Bee Hoon, the heart-warming Old Teochew have re-introduced classic local favourites Cuttlefish Jellyfish Kangkong with Fruits and Lontong exclusively at their Tampines outlet. Back by overwhelming demand since they first launched it back in 2018, these dishes are now permanently on the menu at Tampines. Their Lontong’s luscious gravy features a dash of coconut cream for a fuller body and pre-fried tempeh for a nuttier flavour. Serving up a variety of textures and flavours, the Cuttlefish Jellyfish Kangkong with Fruits brings together the crunch of kangkong and fruits with the chewy bite of cuttlefish and jellyfish. If diners prefer it without jellyfish, they can also opt for their Cuttlefish Kangkong with Fruits.
