My Weekend Muse: @Joji’s Diner

TGIF ! The year- end school holiday starts today! You can tell by the cheerful smile and excited look on Owen’s and Liam’s faces when daughter, Sharon fetched me from my Tampines home for the 20 min drive to Joji’s USA – style deli, located at 534, Upper Serangoon Rd.

I had promised them a lunch treat at Joji’s – the latest favourite haunt of young adults and teenagers who patiently queue at the entrance into this small but cosy USA style deli for limited seats – no thanks to the current Covid dine-in restrictions.

Fortunately I arrived early, so managed to reserve two tables for myself, daughter Sharon and the two kids. Don’t expect to see haute cuisine in the menu. What you will find instead are affordable, wholesome, country style, ‘ art decor’ meals, that come with freshly prepared ( US imported ) potato chips, fluffy pancakes, crispy waffles and risotti, like the ones we ordered ( see below ). Finishing off with custom-made ice cream desserts and beverages which an average American adolescent and/or young adult would likely order when dining in a deli with family and friends.

To be frank, there’s nothing sophisticated or classy about this deli. But what the Joji diners will experience (when the chirpy, young, waitresses escort you to a table) is an art decor that’s reminiscent of an American eatery of the 50s – a step back into a time zone which even an escorting senior adult like me can appreciate for the memories and nostalgia it brings.

For Owen & Liam, it has become a “WoW” factor, ingrained in their memory, constantly urging them to plead with their mum and Gong Gong to bring them back to Joji’s , thru’ out the long end Nov/Dec school holidays.
