Ordered their Set A Basmati Coconut with Classic Fried Chicken ($7.90) and added on some Butter Chicken ($3). Given that their food does not contain MSG, I find the taste pretty good!

Basmati rice was not Lemak enough for me but for those who want a healthy meal, this should suffice. Their Chilli isn’t the typical salty ones as well and is definitely way healthier! Would have to say that their butter chicken is good too, not as flavourful as many other places (but again, healthy alert!). This bowl is probably for those who wanna be healthier but craves local food imo. In addition, the eggs were cooked to a wonderful consistency (runny yolk) and their fried chicken was really flavourful and the Star of the dish!✨

Reached at 5.15pm and was second in queue; by the time the shop opened, it was full house. Ordered the cream croquette ($4.50) which came in 3pcs. Would say that the batter was light and not as oily as other places, but wouldn’t order it again. It was pretty underwhelming and the filling wasn’t mashed potatoes but rather a thick cream with corn.

The dish that worn me over was the Ebi Mango Maki ($12). There were 6pcs of maki. Mango was sweet and the prawn was fried to perfection and not oily. The seaweed and tobiko also added sufficient umami flavour to this. The Salmon Mentaiko Don was also a winner but that being said, it’s hard for this dish to go wrong and many other places offer this. Would have to say that the torched smell lingered really well and that the amount of mentai was generous.

Came on a Sunday around 12pm, queued about 30min for this stall! Ordered the Gyoza ($6), Chilli Oil Vinegar Dumplings ($5.50) and 炸酱面 ($4). Gyoza has a chewy bite and crispy edges, was not as oily as I expected. The Chilli Oil Vinegar Dumpling is by far one of the best that I’ve had! Definitely recommended! 炸酱面 was on the sweeter side, noodle texture is good but I personally prefer the savoury type.

Expect to wait quite a bit for this, I spent 40min in queue with about 15 people before me! This is one of the better soya sauce chicken I’ve had, the chicken was moist and tender with a really good bite! Ordered the thin noodles, which absorbed the sauce well but tasted just like average wanton noodles. If I were to queue 40min again for this, I would just order a whole chicken 😂 Also, check with them if they had chicken rice but they only have white rice which was quite a pity.

Nestled in the neighbourhood of Bukit Gombak (and the same coffeeshop as Ah Kow Mushroom Minced Pork Mee), this is by far one of the best Lor Mees I’ve had.

I ordered a small bowl of Lor Mee ($3.50), which was rather filling and added on fried fish ($1.50). The bowl of Lor Mee included yellow noodles, fish cake, hard boiled egg, braised pork, fried meatball and beancurd crispies and the sauce was not starchy/ jelak.

The fried fish, fried meatball and beancurd crispies were really good, and the amount of garlic and vinegar put was just nice; I feel that these really set them aside from other lor mee places.

Premium pork loin was very meaty, there were lean (and drier) portions and also fattier (and tender) portions on each piece of rib so you get to try both varieties on one slab of rib. The soup is pepper based, but not overpowered with pepper. Balance of the soup is just nice, but there are better places out there if you’re looking for a good bkt soup.

Pork trotters were really good and the sauce is herbal-based instead of a salty soy sauce stew. Added braised peanuts ($1) and you tiao ($1). Worth trying but not a place I would revisit for my bkt fix.

The Breakfast Sammy (containing crispy spam, chives, American cheese and a generous heap of egg served in brioche) was their signature sandwich and every bite was truly an indulgence; no doubt I would recommend this to anyone who has yet to try Korio.

Also ordered their Grilled Cheese sandwich (containing cheddar, American cheese and caramelised onions in whole wheat sourdough) and despite being a huge fan of cheese, I feel that this sandwich can be missed out on. Had Oat milk Latte ($6) here as well which was average.

Honestly would come back for their sammies but the biggest con is probably how it’s more of a take-out kiosk and there’s only enough seat in the shop for 1. The staff told us we could sit at Teh Tarik Express but we were ‘chased’ by them twice, so wouldn’t recommend to sit there.

Was in the vicinity and popped by to try the Chicken Cutlet Ban Mee. Chicken cutlet was flavourful and still remained crispy despite turning cold but it gets a bit jelak when eaten on its own; better to eat while it’s hot. Texture of Ban Mian is brilliant but if you can’t take spicy (like me), I suggest not to mix the whole serving of chilli in 😂 Also to note, only the signature dry Ban Mian ($4.50) comes with minced pork, the others do not. Price is exclusive of service charge as well. Would come back to try the signature dry Ban Mian.

Got the Angus Striploin ($48) in medium, texture is alright overall but there were a lot of ligaments, making it a bit difficult to chew. Mash potato was smooth, vegetables were okay. Would be better with more sauce!

The Foie Gras Risotto ($34) was well done; texture of risotto grains were just nice and the foie gras was flavourful without being too jelat. Creaminess wasn’t too overpowering as well, but price point was steep even after using Burpple Beyond.

The Salmon Madness ($18) contains a poached egg drenched in Hollandaise sauce upon the Salmon, plated with baked zucchini, carrots, potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. This dish is a relatively healthier option. The salmon skin was not crispy and could have been done better; the hollandaise sauce was flavourful and well done. Could be better done but still relatively good!

The Truffle Bacon Mushroom Farfalle ($16) was a huge portion and had a rich taste of truffle which wasn’t too overwhelming. Creamy as well, but not too jelat. Containing generous amounts of bacons and mushrooms, this dish is surely worth a bang for the buck, especially with burpple beyond.
