Looking for Paramount Garden food? If you are within the vicinity and are looking for value for money breakfast or lunch, head for O & S Restaurant . O&S has about 15 hawker stalls offering diverse kinds of Chinese food for you to choose from. Better still, the food served is not charged with the normal 10% service charge and 6% government tax.
This non air-conditioned corner shop is packed with customers throughout the day and you will probably have to wait for a table to sit when you come during the peak lunch hours from 12pm to 1:30pm. Hence, if you are planning to come here, come early to avoid the crowd.
If you prefer an air-conditioned environment, try the Choon Prawn Mee House which is located down the road.
