Well seasoned beef masala which must have been stewed for hours to achieve such tenderness.

Could even be the most tender piece of chicken breast.

Serving great indian-muslim cuisine since more than 100years ago. Zam zam’s murtabak is thumbs-up good! Crispy skin with no excess oil, together w overflowing minced mutton and chopped onion. Even a large seems too small for our appetites.

Tagging along to the (seems like always) durian season, ordered this 2kg mao shan wang for $36. It came with satisfying small flat seeds, thick creamy texture and the bitter taste was ultimate 👍🏻 we were already very full from our korean fried chicken dinner, but still couldn’t resist grabbing this.

$6 for this generous bowl of braised pig trotter. Without much oiliness, just a little too much sugar 👅

Convenient place to get my popiah fix. $2.80 per roll is not cheap but its size does the justification. Taste wise more towards the sweet side, would always ask for more chilli to add on some savoury flavors.

Great place in the West for your sudden cravings, wide range of durian species to select from, price ranging from $13 to $20 per KG.
We would always prefer honest durian sellers who update their prices daily, in written, so we wouldn’t feel like they are just shouting a random number based on their mood. We went straight for the MSW. As for most durian sellers, it’s 包吃 here too! We had a seed from the freshly opened Mao Shan Wang and the bitter sweet ultra-creamy texture instantly put a smile on both of our faces.

Finally got to try another house specialty at Babao during our latest visit - DURIAN SAGO. This is not any durian sago that you will get elsewhere, using real puree and chunky flesh of D24, every spoon is full of authenticity and richness. Guaranteed that it will be as satisfied as eating freshly opened durian.

This Injeolmi bingsu from Nun Song Yee used to be our staple. Recent 2 visits, however, have disappointed us with its significant drop in portion and standard. The bowl of bingsu was almost flat when served.

What a smart way to avoid dilution of taste as ice cubes melt. Consistent of milk tea was the same from first sip to the last. Great complement to the dim sum dishes.

Victor’s King Prawn Dumplings are easily double the size of average har gau. Each piece contains 2-3 fresh whole prawns. $5.20 for 3 pieces is definitely worth the eat!
