Probably rental cost in the area is high, the price of food is correspondingly higher too, didn’t help that the menu doesn’t show any food prices at all too, so it’s either you ask the price of each individual dish or you just go ahead...More

Some of the world's purest and most soulful dishes come from family-run restaurants. Our history spans 3 generations from our grandparent's old shop house in Chinatown to our current location in Tiong Bahru. Cheng's @ 27 is truly a labour of love and family, and has been in Tiong Bahru since 1989.
