The Little House Kochabi 一家小店.古早味 is a newly opened and seemingly mysterious eatery along Jalan Yeap Chor Ee. The little light bulbs will be lit in the evenings and if you have been driving along the bustling street, chances of you noticing this place will be high. The Little House Kochabi offers a Taiwanese-influenced menu and its located on a slope (facing the junction to the shop houses at Island Glades). The menu is not big but some home-cooked Taiwanese meals- be it Rice or Noodles, along with some Taiwanese delights like Fried Chicken Chop, Fried Sweet Potato etc. Reasonable price points but the overall food offering is still quite weak and would need some fine-tuning.
We only had their noodle dishes- both were Dry Noodles with Minced Pork but different topping. Nothing out of the ordinary on the toppings, as for the noodles, they were soft in texture... in fact, a little too soft-slouchy to our liking. The Minced Pork sauce was alright but may be overly greasy for some. Each set order will be served with a bowl of Soup and some pickles. Wasabi Salad was interesting at first, we were hoping for something more creative but the dressing turned out to be Wasabi Mayo. Though the Wasabi kick was strong, it was not something that we were expecting unfortunately.
