The quiet Springleaf neighbourhood bordering Yishun (where Benz Hui’s daughter’s cafe and the popular new Friends Cafe cha chaan teng are located) is slowly gaining traction among foodies. Now, there’s another new reason to make the trip: to try food cooked by former restaurant chefs from just $6 (the most expensive dish here is $12).

Three of the four partners behind BoxFan (pronounced “box fun”), which opened on October 1 at The Brooks I condominium, cut their teeth at upmarket restaurants like the now-defunct White Rabbit, and at fine-diners in Mandarin Oriental and Raffles Hotel, before leaving to start their own Asian eatery offering tasty grain bowls (what we cheekily call mod 'cai png' here since you get to pick and choose the ingredients in your slightly elevated bowls).
