Qun Zhong Eating House at Neil Road, Chinatown

Qun Zhong Eating House

If you don’t mind waiting in the hot humidity of a Sunday afternoon with grouchy kids who’ve been woken from their blissful naps on the car ride…this may not be for you.

But after all, this is Singapore. Where if you want good food, you must be prepared to toe the line in the queue. [pun entirely intended]
And face stubborn proprietors who will not budge on the way they allocate tables.
Boy, wouldn’t it be great if I could start a business like this – where I could just wave my hand at eager customers hoping to be the favoured ones to be assigned a table soonest, and ask “You, how many?”, and tell the impatient ones, “You just have to wait. I don’t know how long it will take. Hah, you want to split table? Cannot. Then I must reassign you to the back of the [now 8 table long waiting] queue. You say you want 7 person table, you must wait for the 7 person table.”

Anyway. After you get your table, the food arrives pretty quickly. And it is very good. For something where the filling is the same, only the wrapping is different..like the guo tie and Chinese pizza. *rolls eyes* We are such gullible creatures.

The length of the waiting line outside never waned all the time we were there.  Phew. Like I said, super good business.  Damages came up to $112 for seven adults and three toddlers. 😛
