Tiny but packed w flavour. Filling was generous and it's a dry floss kind but there's a mild heat, lots of umami, and was atrociously aromatic.

Must try

The sets come with drinks so I guess that makes the price a little easier to swallow.

However this wasn't stirred properly, there's still entire chunks of Milo underneath

Really, really good stuff

Soft enough but there's a good chewy bite to it too, lemak and aromatic, balanced sweetness.

A fantastic rendition

Achar was delicious and perfect

Rice sucks though, really dry.

Curry ckn was thick but very mild and there's almost no heat. Not very shiok

Their mee Siam is pretty balanced and there's enough depth. But for 8bucks? Idts

The chendol itself is homemade, it's got a soft sticky texture and a decent pandan aroma. However it's abit too salty for a dessert

The coconut cream was thick but not sweetened as all. Gula melaka was the most prominent flavour after everything was mixed tgt.

Overall it's okay but fell short of expectations

This was delicious as well. Texture was king in this case as it had a perfect gelatinous meaty texture. The rempah is actl pretty mild, quite aromatic still but I would have preferred a darker richer version w abit more heat

Nonetheless it's still very good

Another stunner. The sotong had an excellent texture, much better than most. It's mainly tha bounce without chewiness that's particularly impressive.

The flavour was great too. It's mainly sourness but despite how it sounds, it's not sharp at all. There's still umami underneath it all and overall it's very addictive, and a savoury dish not a sour one

Highly recommended

The Barramundi was cooked well so it was very tender, but that's not the highlight here. The sauce was absolutely intoxicating and I loved that it's made into a puree texture instead of the usual soup. I'm a huge fan of places that innovate and IMPROVE on traditional recipes, not just changing it for innovations sake.

The sauce was so complex and hid a heat that's unnatural for a mid-tier restaurant. It's also not overly sour as assam pedas tend to be.

Really, really good stuff and an absolute must try here if you're not a traditionalist

Good rice but this is the only rice left, no more fried rice which looks good

Looks exactly like bakwan kepiting, never had it before so not quite sure if they gave us the wrong thing

The meatball had a good bounce, and the soup was balanced w crustacean flavours but an underlying pork stork was there too. Not bad

Their rice here is really delicious. Long grains with a pleasant bite. Plus the gravies are all rice stealers, I eat almost double the portion of rice I eat elsewhere.

The longan tea plus rice for 2pax is alr 17++ for 2 pax in total. This place is really expensive and the portion is fit for two only. But it really is good. Still the best peranakan I've ever had
