The Sixties – Economical breakfast classics

Serving hearty breakfast staples to the tune of chee cheong fun, carrot or yam cake, glutinous rice, shun kway and century egg lean meat porridge, The Sixties’ menu is simple and straightforward. The best part? All their dishes don’t cost a cent above $2!

yam cake and glutinous rice

The pictures lining the shopfront look incredibly appetising; however, in reality, the taste of the food leaves much to be desired. The yam cake ($2) sadly contained more flour than radish, and was a little too greasy for my liking. The portion is rather generous to say the least, and makes for a rather filling – albeit unsatisfying – meal. 

The Sixties glutinous rice

The glutinous rice ($2), on the other hand, showed much promise, served in a heap of glistening rice and peanuts. However, the glutinous rice was not sticky enough, with its loose rice grains falling apart easily when picked up with chopsticks. The fresh peanuts are perhaps its best saving grace, adding a nice plump crunch to the dish. Containing pieces of lup cheong (dried Chinese sausage) and dried mushrooms, with a sprinkling of hei bi (dried shrimps), the mix of ingredients did admittedly achieve quite a good balance overall. The chilli admittedly adds a much-needed tang to the rice; don’t be shy to ask for more if you need it.
