Hawker food wouldn’t be complete without the traditional Hainan-style western food! Tucked in a coffee shop in Pek Kio, a quaint neighbourhood that used to be a sugarcane plantation in the 80s, Colala offers a variety of chops and cutlets from pork, chicken, beef and fish. Expect friendly hellos and great food there! Our go-to order would be chicken chop or pork chop with black pepper with sides of bun, aglio olio pasta and garden vegetables. 

Support local hawkers and opt for self-takeaways instead.
