I haven’t had enough to compare, but @candlenutsg's 𝗸𝘂𝗲𝗵 𝘀𝗮𝗹𝗮𝘁 ($25/200g, $45/400g, $80/800g) thoroughly met my lofty expectations.

That pandan custard felt like dreamy satin which fondled the palate, leaving gentle imprints of its heavenly aroma.

Concurrently, the mellow saltiness of the sticky but airy glutinous rice provided a sublime counterpoint.

Akin to an elegantly crafted concerto of flavours and textures — articulate without excessiveness. It's like tasting “Blue Danube” reverberating in my mouth.

The sauce that cloaked this assam sotong ($24) was impossibly nuanced and boasted of delicate sour notes of Assam whilst lightly washed with gentle brininess.

That sauce brimmed with a depth of flavour as deep as its shade of ocean abyss — perfectly slathered onto the springy and soft baby squid

Fresh crab swam in this velvety and heart-meltingly sweet blue swimmer crab curry ($32). Perfumed with intoxicating coconut milk, it also carried a controlled heat which complemented the succulent crustacean chunks.

With a robust and rich prawn stock, this was a chap chye ($20) unlike any other. Perfectly cooked components gave it a nice mix of textures. That crisp soft leafy crunch bolstered by strands of bouncy tang hoon — lovely.

A stimulatingly fragrant mix of gentle bitterness and umami from the buah keluak underscored this buah keluak fried rice ($24). The sunnyside up was too perfect but I didn’t regret poking into the yolk, which saw a silkiness coated onto each perfectly separated grain of moist rice.

A nice tamarind rub on the skin gave this ayam sioh abakar ($20/half, $32/full) some beautiful umami. Dipping it in the sauce accentuated the juicy meat’s sweetness with a bold piquancy that brought out the flavours more strinkingly.
