True Breakfast Cuppage Plaza
Taiwan has always been a hot foodie destination, thanks to its sprawling night market, hole-in-the-wall eateries, and hidden gem snack stalls. We sorely miss eating our way through the country, so finding quality Taiwanese food in Singapore is the next best solution. Enter True Breakfast, a Taiwanese eatery in Cuppage Plaza that has affordable Taiwanese breakfast fare, mains, and more.

Fans of Taiwanese dan bing, or omelettes, can try the nine different flavours available on the menu.

There are the simple yet savoury Cheese & Eggs ($4), sinful Bacon & Eggs ($4), and the classic Meat Floss & Eggs ($4.50). We recommend going for the latter, as it is chock full of pork floss, circled by a thin egg omelette.

They also have Pork Chop & Eggs ($4.50), as well as Ham & Eggs ($4) sandwiches. Those who prefer sweets can order the Thick Toast ($3.50), topped with your preferred spread.

Contrary to their name, the eatery does not only have Taiwanese breakfast items on the menu. They also have typical Taiwanese fare like Lu Rou Fan ($4) and Scallion Pancakes ($4). Try the popular Salty Chicken, an item rarely seen at Taiwanese food places in Singapore.
Salted chicken is a brined chicken dish that stars extra-tender meat and an aromatic ginger sauce. Prices start at $5 for a drumstick, and you can add on greens, or even offal such as chicken heart for $4 to your order.
True Breakfast is a cosy little restaurant that has quite limited seating, and queues start way before they open, so be prepared to line up.
