One of my Best Meals Ever Had the 9 course tasting menu at ibid for $130++. Everything was spot on in terms of plating and flavours. The intricacy of each dish was commendable with a creative take on what would seemingly be a standard dish (the pictured dish was the shaobing with garlic yeasted butter). They rotate the menu every month with a change in 3-4 dishes each time so I definitely look forward to going back. The staff were all hospitable and friendly (even though they were all extremely busy). I don’t think my water ever ran out and the head Chef was also very hospitable and came out to chat with us. Small mix up at the start where our reservation through the website didn’t go through so safest to WhatsApp or call them. Nonetheless, they assembled a table very quickly and accommodated our table of 11 and apologised profusely after. Would highly recommend this compared to some other Michelin restaurants like CUT especially at the very reasonable price point.

New Dish On The Tasting Menu I loved this. The very gently cooked prawn was stretched out and scored down the back. Into that linear space went pearls of ikura followed by a covering of thinly sliced carrots. The head, deepfried till crunchy, was smothered in a prawn brain and ebiko sauce. Both body and head were reassembled on a pool of liquid gold - a luscious concoction of prawn shells, glutinous rice wine, kefir cream and Shaoxing wine.

Comfort Wok-hey If you like charred like hor fun then you must try Chef Lam's Seafood Hor Fun ($6). The hor fun is smooched with gravy and eggs filled with aromatic fragrance. Their crispy fish skin ($8) is also equally addictive. Worth the wait.

Review on Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin There wasn't really a crowd or queue when I went at 5 plus in the evening on a weekday. I reckoned the price of this dish should be about $5 or $6, but I'm not too sure because I'm not the one who placed the order. This salted egg yolk fish skin dish from a humble zi char stall is way ahead of the majority of its competitors (definitely not one of the run-off-the-mill ones). It doesn't lose out to the biggest names when it comes to salted egg yolk (fish skin)... You can really taste the well-balanced flavour of the salted egg yolk. I find the majority of salted egg yolk (fish skin) too sweet, lacked enough salted egg yolk flavour, or/ and not crispy enough. The fish skin was thin (enough), crispy, crunchy, but not hard. Not only can you taste the egg yolk, but also the fish skin as well. Salted egg yolk (sauce) that is too sweet puts me off immediately. This is one very good dish of the salted egg yolk with a good balance of flavours.

Ma La Xiang Guo $10 PRICE: $10 (Pricing is mostly reasonable except the instant noodles is charged as $2...which is seriously expensive. Well, they know everyone NEEDS instant noodles in their MLXG so they may as well enjoy a huge profit margin from these cheap yummy junk noodles) WAITING TIME: 3rd in queue on a Friday night at 10PM. 13 minutes from queuing to receiving order. SPICINESS LEVEL: Ordered 大辣 this time after previously trying the 中辣 which was incredibly mild. Still didn't find it spicy. But still an enjoyable mala seasoning mix. Not too oily. Wished it was more fragrant and a tad more salty. REMARKS: - Pity they ran out of pork belly - Will not order the pork collar next time (kinda tough)

Kelong-to-Table Seafood Must try is the Curry Mussels! Ordered extra Mantou to soak up the delicious rich gravy that is a mix between Chinese and Indian curry style. I believe them when they claim their seafood is freshly farmed from the kelong, because I taste the freshness and “natural-ness” of the seafood. Even though it is no longer on Burpple Beyond, I will come back to Scaled!

Fried Crispy Squid ($16+) Fried crispy squid with garlic aioli. Generous servings of crispy squid. The server will introduce the dishes and tell us how to best enjoy every dish. For this, he recommended to squeeze the lemon over the sauce to ensure the batter remain crispy it gives a refreshing taste to the sauce. The battered squids are well seasoned (with paprika? Salt? Pepper?) and taste great even without dipping into the sauce. The squid itself is cooked perfectly- not over cooked or rubbery. I love the taste of the batter.

Curry Mussels With Mantou ($16+) My fav dish of the night (we ordered 5). I don’t eat mussels/oysters/basically any shell seafood😂 but I ordered this because of the reviews as I love fried mantou with gravy😜. I enjoyed the mussels (I’m surprised too! although my friend -another shell seafood hater- didn’t). They are fresh, big, plump and tasty. 9 juicy plump mussels in a assam Indian fusion kind of curry with 3 deep fried mantou. Extra mantous are available at 3 for $2 - we ordered them with no hesitation. Mantous are hot, crispy and super soft on the inside and soaks up the curry very well. Delicious. Will definitely order this again the next time I’m back. With additional mantous, of course.
