Most Singaporeans would be familiar with Encik Tan, a chain of halal mini food stalls specialising in local Chinese dishes, particularly Hainanese Curry Rice, Wanton Noodles, Ban Mian, and Claypot Rice.
If you’re a fan of Encik Tan and living in the Punggol West, here’s some good news.
Sedap by Encik Tan, a relatively new concept stall by Fei Siong Group, is now officially halal-certified.
The stall is located within GREAT. coffeeshop — also by Fei Siong Group — in Sumang Lane.
Sumang Lane residents will be very familiar with the said coffeeshop which was previously managed by Kopitiam.
In the middle of this year, the coffeeshop underwent a renovation and re-opened as GREAT. in July.
According to its website, GREAT. is “a brand new concept at heartland coffeeshops serving local and international cuisines, bringing GREAT.Food to you everyday.”
For now, though, it seems like Sedap by Encik Tan is the only halal-certified stall in the revamped coffeeshop.
The menu at Sedap by Encik Tan
Unlike the regular Encik Tan outlets, the menu at Sedap is starkly different.
Instead of familiar Chinese dishes like Hainanese Curry Rice and Fishball Noodles, the menu at Sedap features more varied dishes from different cuisines.
Diners can select from Western, Local Delights, Claypot and even Prata dishes.
Chicken Chop (S$6.80)
Fish & Chips (S$6.80)
By default, the Western dishes come with sides of fries, cole slaw, baked beans and bread.
But, if you prefer other forms of carbs, there’s also fried rice and pasta to go along with your chicken or fish.
Half Spring Chicken Fried Rice (S$6.50)
Grilled Fish Pasta (S$6.50)
The Local Delights menu offers a variety of familiar local wok hei dishes that are cooked a la minute.
Fried Kuey Teow (S$5)
Fried Carrot Cake (S$3.50)
Both white and black versions of the carrot cake are available at either S$3.50. The more popular one seems to be the black version, which is charred and sweet.
Claypot Rice (S$5.50)
Halal claypot dishes are pretty uncommon, so we appreciate that there’s claypot rice and noodles in the menu too.
There’s even Salted Egg Claypot Rice (S$6.50) for fans of the savoury-sweet umami ingredient.
Apart from the Western and Wok Hei offerings, the stall also offers prata.
Two sets are available:
- Set A (S$2.50) – 2pcs Plain Prata + Kopi/Teh
- Set B (S$3) – 1pc Plain Prata + 1pc Egg Prata + Kopi/Teh
However, do note that prata is only available from 7.30am to 10am daily.
