Inside Scoop
Refinery Waffle ($14) The Refinery Waffle actually comes with a fresh waffle, blueberries, strawberries, hazelnut crumble and vanilla gelato but we asked to change the vanilla gelato to matcha sherbet and the staff obliged. The waffles came fairly quickly, waited for less than 10 minutes for them. They’re served with a side of maple syrup, so you can pour it over your waffles to your liking. The fresh waffles are crisp on the outside, yet soft, airy and light on the inside. They are really yummy and don’t get soggy that fast even after coming in contact with the ice cream. We really enjoyed the matcha sherbet, which had a strong matcha taste, and a slightly bitter aftertaste. I’d rank this as a 3.5/5 on the matcha intensity scale, enough to satisfy a matcha lover, but not enough to become too bitter after a few mouthfuls. What was confusing was the name ‘sherbet’ though, as this was incredibly creamy like a gelato. It tasted good, so I’m not complaining, just puzzled by how it’s named. It does become quite melty after 5 minutes or so, so it might be a good idea to push the ice cream off your waffles to minimise sogginess. The blueberries were super super sweet! Yay! But I’m not sure if it’s just luck since the fruits are probably a batch by batch thing. To be honest, I don’t think the hazelnut crunch added much to the dish. We could’ve done without it and I wouldn’t notice much of a difference. Maybe some honey roasted, spiced nuts or nut brittle would’ve been a better addition?

Chicken Nanban ($12) Salt and black pepper karaage chunks served with a sweet vinegar dip. I found these chicken karaage chunks quite interesting. They were served piping hot, and seemed to be battered in extremely crispy fried egg (similar to those found at fish soup stalls). While not super crunchy, they were still good. I liked the sweet vinegar dip that they were served with, and even people who don’t usually like vinegar should be able to enjoy this dip. Wasn’t such a fan of the tartar sauce topping though, and ended up scraping that off. While this was nice, I wouldn’t say it’s one of my favourite karaage. I’d probably leave this out of my order next time to try something else.

Bak Kwa & Asparagus ($3) A yakitori skewer with asparagus wrapped with in-house candied bacon with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Quite a simple skewer which is hard to go wrong with except that I found it too salty. I wouldn’t order this again next time. As a side note, this wouldn’t be a good choice to pick if you were opting for the yakitori platter of 5 ($16) as it’s one of the cheapest on the yakitori menu.

YUCUN CURRY FISH HEAD | I came with expectancy after reading raving online reviews about their curry fish head. The star is no doubt their signature dish. Love the consistency of the creamy curry which goes really well with rice. The normal spice level was pretty mild. Opt for the spicy option if you can take the heat. The fish is my fav part, very fresh! Love the variety of veggies that were cooked till they soaked in the curry broth. . Sadly, all the other zichar dishes pale in comparison with their signature dish. The portion seems smaller than the usual 小 of the other zichar stores. Parking may also be an issue in this area. . Still a good place to go to for their curry fish head! Recommended for large group and the friendly staff are available to celebrate bdays in haidilao style (think loud bday songs and neon board).

Prawn Paste Chicken I was gladly surprised that this dish wasn't too salty, and the batter and taste of the prawn paste was also not too overwhelming. The batter was just right. What's nice is they go by per piece here so you can choose how many pieces of wings you wna have per pax!
