Haidilao at Century Square!
Used to be a sucker for mei ren guo but I think my experience has been on an upward trend w HDL. So will sticky w HDL prolly!

Only the westies would know this one. The popular ke kou mian; a great supper spot after a night of partying

A must have dish whenever I am here for shopping.

All mid joint wings.

I would say the portion is really very little for the price u are paying for.

Walked up and down Liang Seah street, aka steamboat street now 😂, before finally settling with this place! They have an ala carte option as well but we went for the standard 90 minutes buffet (they’re quite strict during peak hours). If I didn’t remember wrongly, the premium buffet is around $32++, but it looks more worth if you take beef - we saw many tables ordering plates and plates of them! The trio soup base is an additional $8 top up per table with their mushroom base as a default. We went for tomato and ma la for the other two.

They have a good range of veg, seafood, etc. that is available for you to take, while their fish and meats are prepared on order. Ingredients were all pretty fresh I must say! Ma la broth was drinkable and the mushroom base was comforting.

Overall it’s affordable for its variety plus free flow drinks and ice cream, but it got really stuffy after awhile. Ventilation inside is not the best, it might be cooler sitting outside if you’re coming for dinner! Weekdays’ pricing per pax is $25.80++.

The shop claimed that you will be mind blown by this soft serve. However, I am disappointed with it as there isn’t much coconut taste and it tastes like normal vanilla soft serve.

The steamed chicken blended well with the chilli sauce and taste great even it served as a cold dish. The chicken was juicy and not much bone in it.

Came in huge size of dumplings with their signature spicy sauce. Each of them was filled with generous amount of meat.

Situated at the 8th floor of Orchard Central, this hotpot restaurant is a nice alternative for people seeking for a quiet supper place in town. They are open until 6am! When I was there at about 11pm, I was the only customer

Their specialty soup base is the fiery butter mala, and mushroom flavor. The waiter recommended us to try the mild level, and I have to thank him for saving my life. Even at mild level, the mala soup base is lethal. The spice immediately took the a hit at the back of my throat the moment i took a sip that caused me to cough. For mala lovers, feel free to knock yourself out by going for the a higher level. (sorry i weak)

For non-mala lovers, you will be happy to know their mushroom soupbase is refreshing and addictive as well.

Do take note that their maggi noodles ($2 for two) require more time to cook than usual, but the wait is worth it.

If you are a seafood lover, their prawns ($16 for 7-8) is a must-order. Very fresh and crunchy (like those dim sum prawns in har gow) after cooking in the soup.
The waiter was attentive and showed good initiative, such as offering aprons and peeling the prawns

Interestingly, they do not offer chicken meat option. You can go for their black pork ($8 for half portion) or the Australian marbled beef ($20). However, the meat does not leave a lasting impression on me

For sauces and condiments, its $2.50 per pax. But I would say the mala broth will provide enough kick to your buds and throat

$5. They only sell this one item at the stall, so it’s easy to order. Just let them know the type of noodles and the size ($5/$6/$7).

Fragrant curry broth packed with ingredients like hainanese chicken, potatoes, taupok, fish cakes, bean sprout.

Cheap CBD weekday lunch! Slightly long queue. Don’t wear white if you plan to have this 🤣


Those having birthdays can get this bowl of noodles for free! Although it’s just a simple bowl of instant noodles with an egg, 2 prawns and some veggies, it’s free so why not? I’m not complaining.
