My Cosy Corner at Coronation Shopping Plaza is very popular if you stay in the Bukit Timah area. This tiny little eatery is tucked right in the corner at level two of the shopping centre. The eatery is not that cosy as the name suggested, it felt like stepping into a small eatery in the early 80s. Furthermore it felt more like an eatery selling Japanese food, rather than local nonya cuisine.
Kueh Pie Tee 4/5
Our lunch at My Cosy Corner started with Kueh Pie Tee ($4.80 for 6pc). I was actually feeling a bit upset that I am served with empty kueh pie tee cups and I have to make it myself. Lucky the food itself make up for it. The Chinese turnip is sweet and still has crunch to it. I would recommend adding a bit of the chilli sauce to enjoy the nonya snack in the crispy pastry tart shell.
Mee Sian 4.5/5
The reason why I made my way down to My Cosy Corner is to have their popular Mee Siam ($5 without prawn). The rich gravy with its perfect balance of sourish and spiciness make it extremely tasty. The crispy tau pok cubes give it an extra texture bites, completing the whole enjoyment.
I also tried the Laksa ($5 without prawn) that comes in a thick and lemak gravy. The dried shrimp gives the creamy gravy a further lift in taste. This is a good bowl of laksa worth the calories.
During my visit. I realized a lot of customers wanted to try their popiah but it was not available. Apparently they don't sell popiah on Sunday. Which also means I did not get to try their popular popiah. I am sure I will be back to try their popiah and also the delicious Mee Siam again.
