I had the grilled chicken chop because I'm trying to avoid fried foods as much as possible, so that is why I did not stop by my usual Hua Mui. IT Roo is largely targeted towards Singapore tourists. The grilled chicken chop was very plain - the only flavour being the gravy. I got the black pepper gravy and it... More

Fussy 9yr old had eggs and chips, more adventurous 11yr old had the fried chicken and LOVED it! For​ the grown ups it was Fried keuoh teow and Cantonese keuoh teow washed down... More

For me, chicken chop taste just average. Plus points are the potato wedges and black pepper sauce taste better. Too crowded maybe due to this restaurant quite popular and near to hipster place.

Had a first go at It Roo yesterday after hearing much about the popular chicken chop. The chicken chop I ordered was a grilled chicken chop with mushroom sauce accompained with potato wedges. After a mouthful, the chicken chop was grilled well done but tender. The mushroom sauce was not too saltish, and the potato wedges were mushy. I personally... More

Food came out real fast. I prefer the original fried chicken chop over the grilled chicken chop. The sauce I prefer is mushroom over the black pepper. Parking is hard to find after 730 pm due to the daily JB night market. I park opposite the Chinese Heritage Museum/ Hainan Association building and walk through the alley opposite the road.

IT Roo Cafe is famous for their chicken chop, and one portion is definitely not enough because it is so good. They have a pretty big portion, and you can add on a fried egg but the chicken chop itself is really nice. You can choose either the mushroom or the black pepper sauce, but i prefer the mushroom sauce.

Thank Gabriella S
