Listing created by farshafarsha on April 16, 2012    

Established in 1940, with a genuine old school interior. So old school in fact that the owner is known to still run accounts on an abacus.

Every generation goes here

This is the place that every generation in my family goes to. It's the kind of place where you don't need the menu to order. Where the owner smiles when you walk in for the 110th time. It's where the smells bring back childhood memories and you hope to bring it into your own children's childhood too. Even their food quality has not changed one bit.

It's in a popular area but you could literally walk by if you don't look. Masked by old windows, old signs and old tiles, it looks just as it was 20 years ago. The owner still calculates with his trusty abacus and the amount of room is still the same despite the sheer growth in business through the years.

An ultimately incredibly authentically Singaporean frequented place. It's so great that I'm probably making up words just to describe how awesome and homely this place is.

Go eat! Is all I can say. And make sure you have a really empty stomach.

An institution

Yet Con is an institution! A totally unique dining experience here in sanitized Singapore, from the old school interior with its knockabout kopi-tiam furnishings to dishes such as the cold roast belly pork with black soya sauce that have since become extinct elsewhere.

Everything tastes very home-cooked, which means it can be a bit hit-or-miss depending on Cookie’s mood. The one person whose mood is consistent is the geriatric Uncle who seems to be rooted to the ancient wooden cashier counter at the entrance. His default setting is blasé with a touch of grouchy. A classic case in point for treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen, because us Yet Con diners just keep coming back for more!
