Had the omega rich steamed halibut, braised duck, ngoh hiong platter, and the orh luak. The chilli in the orh luak is my jam but there's so many more dishes to try so next time I'm leaving space for the orh nee.

Benefits of a large group is that we could order all 3 desserts on the menu. There was the deconstructed acai bowl (prefer my acai smoother), yuanyang pudding (coffee sago pudding, simply paired with milk ice cream - probably my favourite) and the unassuming brown butter cake paired with the unusual sesame oil ice cream (took us awhile to figure out the flavour). I thought the desserts were ok but not as impressive as the previous 2 courses so I would probably opt to skip i them the next time round. /
The lunch sets at restaurant ibid (2 course, $18++; 3 for $25++). Lunch service is only available Wednesday to Friday.

My table ordered all 3 mains available. Was feeling healthy that day and personally opted for the thunder tea rice. Being quite a departure from and much lighter in taste than the original iteration, it probably wouldn't be my go-to choice next time. The shao bing burger was a visual showstopper although a grand mess to eat proper burger style. The pork rib rice was reliably decent but didn't pull any tricks (the crispy fried okra was admittedly rather addictive).

Lunch service is only available Wednesday to Friday. Recommended combination is appetiser + main. /

My table ordered 3 appetisers and each was a favourite for someone. The fried baby potatoes were well executed, crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. The generous portion of General Soh's Fried Chicken was a winner for me, even though not everyone will be a fan of the black vinegar sauce. The sour plum tomatoes, flavoured with miso, was well received by the health conscious of the group. /
Overall this lunch set is probably one of the best value for money propositions in the CBD. Lunch service is only available Wednesday to Friday.

Tried the pho dat biet (special noodle soup, $8.50) which was pho with an egg dropped in. Nice complex flavours in the soup. The Goi Cuon (prawn spring rolls, $8) is very average and can be missed. The jackfruit shake ($4.20, not pictured) was really shiok and although kinda pricey, would still strongly recommend as it's an uncommon shake flavour. The East truly has a lot of great food.

The place was packed at 9pm so we had them to go. Had high hopes for the matcha but it was icy and very much inferior to a lot of the popular matcha softserves out there. Vietnamese coffee fared better with the right balance of sweet, bitter and creaminess but Vietnamese coffee itself is generally an acquired taste to begin with and I can't say it will be a favourite. I suppose a few hits and misses would be expected when churning out innovative flavours month after month.

Staff were in a TGIF jokey mood and were kind enough to let us borrow their umbrellas back. Decided to try their special of the day mixed sashimi (tuna, salmon, hotate, $12 for lunch). The cut of the fish was kinda odd so I recommend sticking to the more reliable teritama don.

Pretty quiet joint during weekday lunch. Rice to ingredient ratio is decent and it comes with side salad, miso soup and 2 slices of watermelon.

The vegetable dishes were ok, but may want to skip the prawns. We ordered the tomato prawns but it was clear that they weren't fresh. However, they offered to change the dish and the cereal prawns fared much better (most likely because they were deep fried and buried in a mountain of cereal bits). #sgfoodie #sgfood #sgrestaurant #zichar #tzechar #horfun #noodles #instafood #singaporefood #singaporeanfood #claypot #burpple

So single photo it is.
A popular a HDB zichar chain, their hougang outlet also serves funky offerings like collagen soup mookata. We opted instead for an upgraded Crab in Da Bag Imperial Pot (regular $79.90), which probably was the most anticipated dish of the meal. Having had lots of crab lately, I wouldn't say this would rank within my favourites, mainly because the sauce is a confused mod podge of different sauces (curry, tomato, pepper, chilli) that was neither unpleasant nor gratifying. Price is reasonable enough and you get a bagful of different seafood.
