One of my favourite food on their menu! The kaya balls, which are like mini pancakes with kaya filling, were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They make a wonderful snack at any time of the day! Comes at the price of $3.30 for 8 pieces.

We got their Value Set A ($4.60) which came with kaya toast, coffee and soft boiled egg. Their toast may look simple, but the taste more than made up for it. The toast was crispy and the combination with their kaya spread was just lovely!

One of my favorite local food, the Muah Chee! From a local fair.

We also got the Ban Mian Set Meal ($7.00) that came with a bowl of Ban mian, a plate of 3 fried dumplings and a side dish of your choice. We chose the braised peanuts. The portion for the bowl of Ban Mian was generous as usual. I also like their fried dumplings; it was a tad oily but otherwise tasty. If you are getting the ban mian, I'd recommend getting the set since it's more value for money. On a side note, they also have other ala carte dishes available, such as the Fried Mantou ($3.00). Quite a range for a small store!

I love the pickled vegetable noodles ($5.20) from Mian Mian Ju Dao at Food Republic. I generally prefer the dish with Mee Hoon Kuay or Ban Mian, but this time I tried it with U-Mian! The food was tasty and the noodles was very smooth and consistently cut. Portion was generous too! I still felt very bloated even after 2-3 hours!

Tried their signature dish with Sausage, Chicken and Mushroom along with the other chicken dish on their menu. Both were not only visually appealing, but the the chicken and sausage were also tasty. The sauce went very well with the rice. However both were a tad too oily for me.

Ice Kacang ($2.50) from Ice Shop at Food Republic. Very refreshing, but sadly, the base ingredients portion was meagre; the red bean couldn't even filled the spoon! Otherwise, the taste is decent enough.

Just a simple girl with a sweet tooth who can't get enough of cakes and desserts, and confectionery!
