What's the name?

The name of this place? Bo Jio Pai.


"Bo Jio" in Hokkien means "did not invite". "Pai" is name, sign or address. However if combine the 3 words together it would be "no signboard or name". So, literally this place has "no name".


First time here on one afternoon. Pass by this place every time send the kids for their swimming class and have been wondering about the food they served. It is a big plot of land with a single storey brown house in the centre. The set-up inside the "house" is very simple; nothing impressive. Long tables, ceiling fans and open concept. Rather warm on a very hot afternoon. Feel like I am eating in a canteen. ^^


One afternoon I brought my 3 musketeers for lunch here. I ordered barley lemon drink as it was a very warm day that day. Jamie loves barley so I could feed him some of this drink.


The waiter recommended its Bo Jio Pai fried rice so I agreed. Fried rice with a little twist of fruit. Green apple!! Can you see the cubed green apple in my fried rice? RM5.90 for this delicious fried rice. I quite enjoyed it. Not too oily and enough "wok hei". Taste-wise, it was just nice. Not much msg or salt detected, which is good. It would be even better if they could add more prawns and sliced chicken than what they served me.


The kids each have a plate of fried mee hoon. Nicely done from the look of it. Quite a lot of ingredients to it too, compared to mine. Both kids said it was good. RM5.90 per plate.

Not cheap considering the price but at least I give it a try.  They have economy rice too. Dishes look very home-cooked. Should not be too expensive, I assume.

If anyone interested to try this place, it is situated at Stapok-Sky Garden junction. It is pretty easy to be spotted with its big banner on the road side.

I guess the owners do not know what name to give so ended up with this name. That plate of mee hoon looks quite big so since your children each can finish eating a full plate of mee hoon then it must be very tasty indeed.

Interesting! We also have restaurants without a name in SG. One of them is known as "No Sign Board" :D
