It’s always such an exasperating experience dining here. While their dishes are great (I love anything mala), the waiting time is quite insane and by the time you get a seat and start ordering, certain types of fish/spice has run out and the waiter then helps you to cancel it off on the order form. While you are looking through, deciding what replacements you can get, the waiter receives news from the kitchen via their earpiece that a new fish/spice has ran out (again 😭) and you just stare at the waiter, wondering what else is available on the menu 🤣 but after all that, what you get is this beautiful and delicious plate of spicy fish awaiting you. Exasperating experience? Yes. Good food? Definitely.

Personally prefer the yakitori one as I thought it was a pretty interesting combination, but I could also do without it and just have a normal bowl of mee pok because of the vinegar, chilli proportion which makes the gravy sour yet spicy and quite the bombz 💯 thanks Andrew for the invite and Guan’s Mee Pok for your hospitality!

Their mee poks were pretty spot on with the right proportion of vinegar, chilli and pork lard (YAS PORK LARD).

Latest addition to the menu here is the Baked Black Chicken. The chicken was really tender and aromatic, having captured all the essence while it was being baked. The gravy was thick and flavourful, further amplifying the overall taste of the dish though I would have prefer if there were more sauce! Oh and did I mention, the accompanying chilli sauce really packs a punch and is certainly not for the weak! Thanks Andrew for the invite and Guan’s Mee Pok for your hospitality! I came starving and left with a happy tummy indeed 👍🏼

The 油鸡面 was pretty decent but nothing fantastic. I still prefer Hawker Chan’s rendition!

To be honest, I wasn’t very impress with their noodles as I felt it was a little plain and dry. But I guess that’s where the char siew and siew yok comes into play. Tender and oozing with flavours, they balanced out the entire meal pretty well. Wash it all down with the soup given and it makes for a hearty meal indeed.

Tried the Dang Gui flavoured chicken thigh and was a tad disappointed as the danggui taste was too faint, was expecting something stronger. Nevertheless, the chicken was tender and juicy still and makes for a fuss free chicken rice meal!

Don’t let the mountain of chilli trick you, it really isn’t as spicy as it looks, if you can take spice, that is. The fish was uber tender and soft, easily breaking apart as you pick it up with your chopsticks. An absolute killer when paired with a bowl of rice. You can top up sides like mushrooms, crab stick along with various other options to go along with your fish!

Been here umpteen times and this is the first time I tried their sides. They were decent, but not great. Will just stick to their mains for that awesome mapo sauce drizzled all over the rice 👍🏼

Finally tried this, and I must say, it does live up to expectations. Got the 中辣 and it was not sweat inducing (my spice tolerance are slightly higher) but it was a very satisfying meal. Mixed in the maggi which soaked up all the mala essence like a sponge woohoo 💯

XingZhou Beehoon that took 40 minutes to arrive 🤦🏼‍♀️ on the bright side, it came piping hot and was utterly moist though it lacked any wok hei taste. 😕
