Succulent fried chicken and free-flow deep fried batter crumbs that go so well with the aromatic and flavorful rice. Add $1 for extra chicken like I always do! #noregrets

The fried fish dumplings were huge, crunchy and flavourful. The hor fun gravy had a slight hint of herbal taste to it, and I liked the goji berries in the gravy. Would definitely recommend this if you are in need of some comfort food.


Super stoked to find this delicious nasi ambeng place in the north! At $27.90 for 2 pax, this classic set (shown in picture) is cheaper than many places, yet just as delicious if not better than some "famous" ones.

I enjoyed every dish on this platter, although I felt that the rendang was a little tough for my liking. The paru was really delicious, one of the better ones I've had. Three of us shared this platter, but we had an additional serving of paru. Should be manageable for two hungry people. I'm definitely going back for their nasi ambeng, maybe this time I'll go for the deluxe set!

Lontong has always been one of my favourite breakfast food, as it brings back many fond memories of my childhood. That said, this lontong ($3.50) at the Kampong Glam cafe is really shiok! The coconut gravy was flavourful, the pieces of lontong were "soft", perfect for soaking up the lemak gravy. I also enjoy this dish because of the crunchy vegetables like cabbage and long beans.

The iced kopi here is also pretty strong!

My friend had the mee rebus and gave it two thumbs up too. Will definitely be back to try other dishes here.


This generous serving of chicken chop was nicely grilled, succulent and VERY satisfying. Definitely one of my top choices of comfort food.


Very flavourful and "wet", the way we like our hokkien mee. The $15 is enough for 3 hungry people. We'll definitely go back if we are craving for satisfying hokkien mee.


Love love love the slightly chao-tar taste (wok hei?)!


Deep fried succulent pork pieces in sweet and sour sauce -- craving satisfied 😍 I'm glad the sauce here isn't too sweet or ketchup-y.
