Joji's Diner, the retro American cafe nestled in the heart of Serangoon, has been causing quite a stir on social media ever since dining-in restrictions were lifted. With its nostalgic ambiance and mouthwatering American fare, it's no wonder this diner has become a popular spot for comfort food enthusiasts seeking a taste of classic Americana.

The Allure of Joji's Diner

Diners hold a special place in American culture, representing a haven of no-frills, greasy goodness that is fast, affordable, and satisfying. Joji's Diner strives to recreate this charm with their affordable all-day breakfast menu that has something for everyone.

Food at Its Finest

At Joji's Diner, the food is the star of the show. One standout dish is the All-Star Platter ($12.50), a delightful ensemble of breakfast favorites like bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage, and a crispy hashbrown. The quality of the ingredients immediately brings to mind a superior version of McDonald's iconic Big Breakfast set.

The french toast, despite being generously doused in maple syrup, manages to retain a perfect balance of light cinnamon flavors that cut through the richness. And let's not forget the German sausages, which offer a satisfying crunch and burst of savory goodness, enhanced by the addition of salty cheese.

The buttery scrambled eggs are a revelation, smooth and melt-in-your-mouth, although the richness may become slightly overwhelming after a while. As for the Smash Burger ($11.90), while it showcases fluffy burger buns embracing two beef patties, cheese, and pickles, it falls slightly short in delivering the characteristic smoky, seared flavors of a true smashed burger.

However, the star of the show is undoubtedly the Chicken and Waffle ($12.90). This glorious creation features a pyramid-like tower of milky waffles, succulent fried chicken, and a sunny-side-up egg. The waffles, with their rich dairy undertones, create a delightful contrast against the perfectly seasoned fried chicken. The only disappointment is the slightly burnt and bitter-tasting sunny-side-up.

For those with a sweet tooth, the Big Bang ($8.90) chocolate milkshake is a sinful delight that can pass as a meal on its own. Topped with whipped cream, mini-pretzels, a strawberry, and a mini doughnut, this milkshake is a decadent treat worth sharing.

Step into Nostalgia

The diner's Instagram-worthy aesthetic makes it a must-visit spot for those seeking the perfect #ootd backdrop, although be prepared for the occasional photo-bomber, as this place is always bustling with eager customers. It's worth noting that the diner is conveniently located just a six-minute walk from Serangoon MRT Station, right next to the famous Song Kee Fishball Noodles.
