Didn't manage to snap a picture of the baos, but I managed to get a pic of the noodles (this was the 'must order' beef noodles). Soup was cold and flavourless, with a few chunks of meat and overcooked noodles.

The baos have thick skin, hard and were very pricey. I reckon you could get better (and cheaper) ones at Chinatown. Please avoid this shop at all costs.

When you eat these magnificent dumplings. These dumplings have such a thin and smooth skin that you'll be tempted to swallow them whole.

Perfectly boiled, and doused with just the right amount of soy sauce, vinegar and chilli oil, these dumplings will work up your appetite.

Recommended portion: One plate per person

Not the best shot, but this was my takeaway order from Taste Affair today. I got the chicken leg with chorizo option, and added $2 for extra chicken

Some people might find the chicken to be on the dry side, but I personally like the charred bits. The pasta was also tossed well in the sauce, making every mouthful a flavourful one.

Would recommend for the value and taste!

Had this for a work day lunch and boy did I regret it! Quite affordable at $6.5 for an extra serving of chicken cutlet

The horfun was cooked on the spot and tossed with crunchy taugeh before being doused with the thick sinful curry sauce. The fried chicken was marinated with spices which went well with the creamy curry sauce.

Go for it if you want to fall asleep at your desk in the afternoon!

Had the basil chicken rice ($4.5), fried kangkung ($3.5), white tomyum ($5) and pad thai ($4.5)!

Basil chicken was done just right with the right amount of chillies and gravy to go with the rice. White tomyum was a bit too sour for my liking.

Funny story: while we were halfway digging in, the store owner came running to our table with a small bowl of fish slices because she forgot to put them in!

Good place for a cheap thai fix!

Double chicken cutlets @ $6.5!

Well marinated chicken cutlets fried to perfection combined with the q-est eggy noodles doused in their signature 'red' sauce comes together for the perfect explosion of flavour in your mouth!

If you're a chicken cutlet noodle person (who isn't?), don't miss this out!

Very well cooked porridge in tiong bahru! Abit pricey ($5) for the amount of meat given, but it's a good change from all the heaty and fried food we eat everyday!

Had the plain bagel with scallion cream cheese schmear and cinnamon raisin bagel with the walnut raisin schmear. Freshly made bagels with in house spreads, what more can you ask for?

Had to queue for 30 minutes, but the noodles were worth it! Rich curry broth with generous slices of chicken to fill you up.
