Three Little Pigs, Tiong Bahru Plaza

What's up with these places in Tiong Bahru Plaza serving their sweets before the rest of the food? Three Little Pigs (#01-106, Tiong Bahru Plaza, 302 Tiong Bahru Road) seem to have also scrambled their food serving sequence as well by using order chits. Should I even wonder how service processes or the tech that goes behind it has no common sense human touch integrated behind them to support the users that very obviously have none and/or couldn't care less.

The menu, has changed from the last time

"not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!"

That's their Thai tea cake. Yes, it was the first item that was served. Don't waste your money on it. It came so fast that you knew it never went into the oven before being assembled. It's just sweet and didn't have much of the said tea flavour. Totally shattered my imaginings of flowing molten Thai tea from a hot moist cake.

Their pork skewer rice was quite good. The kailan on the side was tender and sweet and the pork in skewers were fatty and moist with a sweet marinade that is not unlike satay. Even the spicy sour sauce on the side with that little bit of coriander flavour was appetizingly delicious. Portions were kinda small though.

The most memorable thing from their pork chop rice for me was the accompanying sauce which they had ladled over the rice. It tasted like it had some meat juice and a lot of butter in it. We asked for extras. That said, the pork chops were pretty decent - kinda reminiscent of those from Din Tai Fung.
