I Found My Fave New Place For Crispy Bee Hoon & It’s Even Better Than JB Ah Meng’s
Nestled in the basement of United Square shopping mall in Novena is Chinese restaurant Crown Prince Kitchenette. The year-old eatery, which took over the space where Duckland used to be, was recently rebranded from Crown Prince Wine and Dine and now serves mostly Cantonese cuisine and Malaysian-style zi char dishes. But don’t let the large and rather unwieldy menu confuse you — zero in on the smoky JB-style crispy beehoon pancake. But more on that later.
The casual-chic diner is run by Elaine Yap, 54, and her daughter Anjolene Aeria, 32, who own a large tea shop chain (which they declined to name for this story) and the now-defunct Lian Peng Bak Kut Teh eatery. They shuttered their bak kut teh restaurants in IMM and Changi City Point in 2020 when the pandemic struck.
