Got the Bruno mixed grill ($32.80) and the meat were burnt and really tough. They were also really salty, including the fries given as a side. What can I say, the mashed potato was the best thing on the plate. Probably not coming back again.

The fish head steamboat's soup was rather sweet, and the fish parts were very fresh. We ordered a couple of sides as well, and the prawn paste chicken was a hit, but the salted egg yolk prawns were not, as the prawns weren't that fresh. Our bill amounted to $120 plus for 7 people, which is rather steep considering the amount that we ordered.

Dabao-ed a packet of black carrot cake ($2.80) from my neighbourhood coffeeshop and I must say their carrot cake do have the standards.

The portions are huge (equal portions of egg and carrot cake too) and it is really fragrant too. The chilli is probably what that stands out most from other stalls, as it has the full on flavour of the fermented shrimps. However it is REALLY spicy so just take a little!

Tried this stall my first time today, and the first thing I noticed was the different noodle used. The Maggi noodles were thinner in size, but they do soak up the mala flavours more. Portions are generous as me and my friend ordered a $20 bowl but we were unable to finish!

Think you will only get bursts of soup from xiao long baos? Think again as this stall's wo tie (pan fried dumplings) ($6 for 10) have that same bursts of meat juices spilling out of the skin the moment you bite onto them.

The chilli dumplings ($4.50 for 10) are really good as well, as the skin was silky smooth, the fillings were equally as flavourful, and the chilli vinegar sauce sure packed a punch.

Such high quality dumplings sure brings me back to my holidays in China, and its great to know I can eat them here in my home country.

The claypot rice at Sembawang traditional claypot rice ($19.80 for L) really has the smoky taste that I was looking for! The rice was really flavourful as well, and they really didn't skim on the ingredients. Try out their seafood da ru mian as well, as the warm gravy packs the seafood goodness that is addictive!

Tried the grilled chicken chop ($4.50) from fins and feathers and it was a decently grilled chicken with a crispy crust. Though the sauce can be better, the fries were good as they were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Great for a casual meal!

For those who have not tried soup Bak Chor Mee, it's really different from the usual chilli bak chor mee you can get anymore, as what matters alot is the soup brewed. This stall's soup BCM boasts a light and slight porky broth. The pork balls are the normal ones you can get from supermarkets. Overall it is a decent bowl of noodles that is worth getting for supper, as they open till rather late.

After a long day, nothing beats Ah Balling's peanut soup with tangyuan, as it is the best hot dessert to get around the region due to its warm sweet soup with chewy tangyuan that will definitely lighten your mood, no matter what you've been through. Throughout my whole life this has been my go-to comfort food, and since 5 tangyuans only set you back at $2.40, I don't see why people would reject such desserts.

Personally, I feel that this stall does one of the best ban mians in Singapore. The highlight of the bowl would be the mian guo itself, because they are really thick and chewy, and the floury taste isn't too strong! The soup is really flavourful, and you know that it's natural goodness, not from simple MSG. They are really generous with their ingredients, especially the meats and fried anchovies. Totally worth my trip down from the east!

The main winner of this dish is the noodles. The noodles are lightly coated in shallot oil and are really firm, giving them both the right texture and flavour. The char siew are not the "cardboard" kind available in most wanton mee, and are flavourful, with the right amount of char. The Thai sausages given are also worth a mention, as they were like upgraded versions of Taiwan sausages. The portions are okay and this bowl is definitely worth a trip down!!

At less than 500m away from Clarke Quay where all the clubs and bars are, BK Eating House (open 24H) is a great spot to get your supper fix after a night of drinking. I ordered the Signature Dry Mee Sua ($4), which I find rather unique, because it is usually mee pok or mee kia that is drenched in the BCM kind of chilli sauce. After a few mouthfuls of the mee sua, I discovered the reason why most people would order this. I find myself strangely slurping up mouthfuls after mouthfuls of mee sua without feeling the gelat-ness, which is rather apparent in mee kia and mee pok noodles. It's a great bowl of noodles that would fit everyone's appetite, and fill your hungry belly.
