We tried the yellow ginger chicken, curry chicken, and roast pork. I think the ginger chicken was the best, though we did like all. First time seeing nasi lemak served with pork.

This place was bustling on a Sunday afternoon. Toast was nice and fluffy but I still prefer Ya Kun's crispy toast and pandan kaya. Kueh was great! Great for afternoon snacks.

Great lunch choice around the Bugis area. Went here with a bunch of colleagues and we all agreed that the pork chop was excellent. You can choose to have it with rice too. Too bad their chili was watery and didn't match the pork chop at all. But that's a minor gripe.

Good portion for the price. I liked the roast meat more than the char siew, even though they're apparently more well known for the latter. Worthy of revisits!

Not too impressed with this. Had the $5 bowl with kway tweow noodles. Prawn stock was rich but there aren't enough ingredients to make this meal interesting. There was only 4 slices of prawn too, not enough!

A lot of people raved about this but I thought it was just alright!😅 $5.50 for a big bowl (pictured), $4.50 for a small one. The noodles they use are different from the usual and it indeed was nice but I am still wondering why there is no soya sauce base! So it felt lacking to me. The wontons (hiding underneath the noodles) are tasty but small, so make sure to order a side of the fried ones. They're quite addictive and the small size just makes it easier to pop one into your mouth. My boyfriend warned me that the chili sauce is very potent so i had to put it little by little. I didn't find it that spicy actually but I guess I really did not put enough. Anyway to summarize, I don't think it's the best but it's still worth the try and I will probably still come back.

Spinach noodles with brisket for $5.50. Liked it a lot! Great breakfast before class. The brisket was so tender! I'd go back to try the wanton tomato noodles.

Salted Egg Calamari ($12). Been wanting to try this since it was so close to NUS, finally did last Saturday after I attended an even at one-north. Was excited to have it but it turned out just okay. Too sweet and creamy, plus the cut chili barely added heat to the dish. Squid was clearly not fresh and the batter used was very poor too. Lastly, there was a long strand of hair stuck in two rings of squid:/ Well, it's not like I was in a fancy restaurant so I didn't make a fuss, the uncle saw us trying to pull it off though and he took it back. He returned quickly, and it was obvious that they just removed the two aforementioned pieces. Hah. They got my bro's order wrong too and we had to pay more cos we were given a bigger dish, but I guess the confusion lies in the fact that we can't speak a Mandarin and the uncle couldn't speak English.
