Tan Yu 探鱼 has been on my radar for some time, tempting me every time I walk around 313@Somerset’s basement. Packed during lunch on a Tuesday, I was surprised by how affordable and shiooook this place was!

Of course we chose the ma la, and it was just perfect. The amount of 麻 was just nice, giving your tongue an addictive tingly sensation without going overboard. We added on their Golden Combination ($9.90) – enoki, lotus root, potato and crab sticks sitting under the fish, soaking up that intense fiery flavour. And the fish itself was good enough to share among 3-4, soft and fresh; definitely a value for money lunch. 👅💦💦
