The dish was hearty and flavorful, and made me feel true comfort as per its name
📍@ahbongsitalian, #01-02, 103 Beach Road, S189704 (near Bugis mrt, exit towards Tan Quee Lan)

Was recommended to try this by the waitress as it was their 'signature dish'. Felt like the chicken had too much coating of flour-batter & although very crispy, lacked a richer salted egg taste (that I was looking for) ⭐️ 3/5 ⭐️

Felt like trying something different so went for the dry ban mee from the ban mian stall. I liked the rich flavours of the sauce & the mix of the crunchy & tasty Ikan bilis & shallots. A cheap & good meal ⭐️ 3.5/5 ⭐️

Sadly, they ran out of lobsters and crayfish by the time we got there, but the soup is super flavourful and the prawns and clams are ultra fresh! Really good for $5! ⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️

Waited for 1hr 10mins to finish the meal in 10mins 😂 but the queue was really worth it 👍🏻👍🏻. It's $6 (small)/ $8 (medium) to try really good ba chor mee (pork noodles) that can't be gotten anywhere else (not at this standard at least). We went at 9.30am (opening time) and had 16 people in front of us.
⚠️ BEST TIME TO GO: before 9.30am as they give out queue no and you just have to sit around to wait. When we left around 11, the queue stretched to a 2+hr wait!

Value-for-money lunch option in the Tanjong pagar area. While everything was yummy, the cured salmon was a bit too oily for my liking & less flavourful than expected. ⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️
