Po Po at Sinpopo

Yes, Popo is a nickname for Cuchi, small wonder that she discovered this place along the streets of Joo Chiat. Sinpopo is actually a vintage-inspired coffeeshop that serves up old school delights. Armed with an empty stomach, Cute Cute and Cuchi went down for lunch

Cosy and homely, Sinpopo does bring one back to the 70s and 80s. The feel, the music, the furniture, etc all contribute to its down-to-earth vibe. You will find record covers of 70s singers, an old television set and even old-school  posters.
Looks like Smurfy is having a blast from the past

Sinpopo's food menu consists of mainly local hawker food and drinks but do not fret, you will be surprised by the quality of the food there.
Sng Muay Pop
Really unique, the Sng Muay Pop is actually frozen concentrated Sng Muay juice (preserved plum juice) in small ice balls added to 7-up with sliced lime. Cute Cute enjoyed this ice treat on a hot afternoon.
Kopi that was done very well
Nasi Lemak
One of Sinpopo's specialty, the rice was fluffy and full of that fragrant lemak taste. The fried chicken wing was old school with a bit of tumeric or curry powder in its slightly spicy marinate. The only downside was that the accompanying homemade chilli was not spicy enough. Other than that, the nasi lemak was yummilicious. 
Kato Rice
Kato Rice is our Singapore's scissor-cut curry rice. Pork chops, curry chicken wings, fried egg, stewed cabbage and curry gravy rice were the items in the scissor curry rice. Verdict? Excellent!
Sago Pudding
The sago pudding was another delight. Not too sweet even with the addictive dose of gula melaka, the sago pudding was worth a try especially when you have eaten this before when you were young.
The Lions enjoyed themselves at Sinpopo reminiscing about the past.
