春卷 ($6) and 醉鸡 ($10) are must try on the menu!
The crispy 春卷 and its flavourful filling goes perfectly well with vinegar. 醉鸡 was very juicy and there’s a lightly gelatinous feel to it. You can taste the booziness of the 花雕酒, definitely better than DTF’s version!

We pre-ordered 生煎包 ($6) when making our reservation. Bite with caution as the scalding soup bursts right through the bun. My family loved it but I guess I just don’t enjoy pan fried buns that much.

We also tried 上海小馄饨 ($3.50), my to-go breakfast when I’m in Shanghai. I absolutely loved it, even though it’s just wanton soup to most people.

梅菜扣肉包 is a must try on the menu! 梅菜扣肉was nicely done, the pork belly was really soft and tender. Dip the fluffy bun in the sauce to achieve a greater gastronomical experience!

小笼包($6), a tad bit saltier than DTF’s, but more flavourful with a more chewy skin. I liked it and thought it was better than DTF’s, albeit sadly, there’s no ginger slices to go with it.

酒酿丸子 really fell short of expectations, cos my grandma used to make this at home. The glutinous rice ball was great (I love all mochis) but the rice wine was too diluted hence resulting in a watery rice wine soup. Could be better if it were more starchy and add more rice wine.

Company catered bento Nasi Ambeng for lunch! Love their bergedil and sambal belcan, extremely spicy but shiok!

Ordered Tom Yam Fish Soup ($6.80), Sliced Fish Soup ($5.80) and Har Cheong Gai ($4) for lunch! Food was good, but you’ll have to eat quickly and head off fast as the queue will build up due to the limited seats available.

Tried their Eat 3 bowls with Drink $15 (Fresh Milk with Brown Sugar Pearls) and Braised Pork Rice Set ($8). Braised pork wasn’t those low quality minced meat you get usually outside at the food courts, it will literally melt in your mouth and goes so well with their rice! Meesua and chicken rice were both okay only.

BBT has really chewy pearls, other than that, it’s pretty normal.

Would definitely return for their Luroufan!

Luroufan was good and tasty, although the meat and rice ratio could be better. Meesua tasted pretty normal, but the portion was good.


Half a chicken that was extremely tender, three egg spinach and crispy tofu for only $44 in total! They had the best ginger sauce to go along with your rice and chicken too.

Came back for cheap, good comfort food. I had the Beef Special Pho while boyfriend ordered Crab Pho. 👍🏼 Super value for money! Better than Nam Nam in my opinion, since Nam Nam had been giving lesser portions lately.
