Time Out says

Established in 1929, Spring Court is the oldest family-run restaurant in Singapore. First opened at Great World Amusement Park as Wing Choon Yuen, it is now run by third-generation owner Mike Ho in a four-storey heritage shophouse along Upper Cross Street. Instead of classic Cantonese cuisine, the establishment serves Singaporean-Chinese food, which Ho explains is a touch more spicy, “Our food reflects the tastes of Singaporeans who are accustomed to Indian and Malay flavours, and the different Chinese dialect groups like the Hokkiens and Teochews.”

Notable dishes to try include the traditional popiah ($8.50), yam ring with mixed vegetables and prawns ($42), Singapore’s chilli crab in claypot (seasonal price), and the crab meat roll with chicken liver and salted egg ($15.80 per roll). We recommend saving some space for dim sum, which is masterfully prepared by chefs who have been with the restaurant for over two decades.
