Unbelievably crunchy and fat, and the sambal was amazingly shrimpy and chewy to such a degree that it almost felt like a featured mini ingredient than a mere paste. The petai wasn't particularly stinko - perhaps thanks to the charms of the sambal, its controversy was reduced to a slight bitterness. This was $6.50 (!) without any imposed GST and service charge (!!) in a comfy and spacious cafe setting (!?!). Recommended for sure. 4/5

Generous portion of fish maw and lightly flavoured minced meat. I prefer stronger tasting soups though so this was the only dish we didn't finish

Bean paste taste wasn't very strong so it was like stewed pork ribs. Pretty tender pork ribs though so it was quite good

Sour and citrusy, the soup was almost drinkable and I really liked it. Nicely balanced with sweetness, it wasn't too spicy. Fish was extremely meaty as well, 3 generous fillets

Quite a comforting rendition and my friend who was ill absolutely loved it

Tender pieces of beef in a decent gravy. Thick and not too spicy

Good decision to leave this to the last as it's rather filling. Came in expecting something exciting but got a really pleasant, mild, homely version which I had absolutely no complaints about. Extremely tender especially considering the cut of beef, but it's a rather mild version so do mix in the sambal at the side

Essentially popiah with lettuce and cuttlefish, but it's surprising that the jicama keeps some of its crunchiness even when it's cooked. Btw their sambal is frigging fiery

Noodles were very lightly flavoured while the greens were slightly undercooked

Rather sweet curry which went well with the tender chicken thigh. Not sure if you always get this cut though

Comes with either rice or noodles(they ran out of bread)

Superb sauce that was tangy but unfortunately the beef didn't hold up. Dry and tough, it was really a pity

U get to choose between rice and noodles but the curry veggies and achar really came as a surprise since it wasn't shown in the picture. Solid achar but the curry vegetables were really good as they added small dried prawns for umami
