Jook with chicken ($7.99).

If you’re looking for a restaurant with huge flvors, generous portions, and a strong neighborhood following, head to 1727 Liliha St. and step into Hoy Tin Kitchen.

Hoy Tin Kitchen dazzles its customers with tasty food, and plenty of it, at extremely reasonable prices. Check out Singapore Rice Noodles, a plate piled high with noodles, shrimp, sliced pork, bean sprouts, onions and cabbage flavored with plenty of curry. It’s an incredible bargain at $8.99, and even more at the current special price of $8.50.

Comforting and satisfying, Jook ($6.99, additional $1 for meat or $2 for seafood or beef) is a simple Chinese comfort food that is simply delicious.

“We cook the rice for a long time,” says manager Janet Chan, who adds it is also great for those feeling under the weather as “it’s easy to digest and it has a lot of nutrition.”

The plain jook is made with a bit of salt and ginger for flvor. Guests can enjoy the jook with boneless chicken or pork for just $7.99, or ˛sh ˛llet, beef or seafood (˛ sh, squid and shrimp) for $8.99.
