Third-generation owner Mike Ho runs this Chinese restuarant today, which has endured the passing of its original home in Great World Amusement Park and several subsequent relocations. Since 2005, Spring Court can be found along Upper Cross Street, in a four-storey shophouse that seats 650. There are even VIP rooms equipped with karaoke machines so you can belt out ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ while tucking into the Singaporean-Chinese dishes.
It hasn’t changed much – the chefs still use the recipes that have been passed down through generations. Signature dishes include the Spring Court popiah ($7.50), a snack Ho’s mother Soon Puay Keow used to roll for employees to munch on between shifts. We’re told they had loved it so much they convinced her to include it in the menu – and it’s been a best-seller ever since. Try the hor fun with prawn ($22), too: it’s lighter than the typical noodle dish, with soupier gravy.
