Overhyped

Nowadays social media sells better than the product itself. I find myself disappointed when I visit these places. Hopefully it'll save you the hassle so you won't make a wasted trip. Do not believe the hype.

Regretfully soggy unseasoned fried chicken still drenched in oil, honestly at best, average tasting rice and texture (unlike the lemak slightly oiler yet so insanely fragrant you just want more). This meal generally lacked salt and flavour. The Otah ($2) was probably the best thing here. There might have been a change of hands/owners, cause they were a lot higher up the ranks in my books. Since Nasi Lemak is definitely considered, in my list, one those "true to home" Singaporean food, this one just didn't make the cut. Best hunt for better ones out there!

Perhaps the flavours weren't that great when we visited (heavy chocolate / banana / oolong).
These soft serves were visibly melting barely 3 minutes after they were served. They lacked mouthfeel and an aftertaste that feels like it's watered down.
Our cones were soggy by the time we got to them, they had no crunch and barely tasted of anything except sweetness.
My brother jokingly mentioned that McDonald's does a much better job for a fifth the price. Though I'm not big on Mac's vanilla cone myself, I have to agree.
