We have been eating eggplants even more than rice 😂 so we can confidently say this is a good one! Without the extra oiliness that we always find in eggplant dishes, it was well stewed to achieve perfect texture and braised type of taste. Together with generous amount of minced meat, super!

Got a bit disappointed as we ‘open’ up the rice pouch and realised the pathetic amount of economic ingredients buried inside. The glutinous rice had a nice texture but not much taste.

Biting into the crispy outer layer, the carrot cake texture inside was kind of sticky and creamy. I actually like this version a lot. Simple and nice!

This plate of chinese dumplings in chilli oil came very different in taste. Much more black vinegar than chilli oil itself. Its like eating chinese dumplings without the spicy factor, which kind of defeats the purpose of this dish.

Heard so much about this famous Ping Kee Popiah stall at Sembawang Hills Food Centre, on how the unique use of Chinese sausages complemented the usual popiah ingredients so well..

I was really looking forward to it… but unfortunately greatly disappointed.

There was only ONE almost paper thin slice of Chinese sausage PER ROLL.

The disappointment did not end here, the popiah skin was extreme dry and difficult to chew, it’s like being left in open air for at least a day or so.

2 words could summary everything about this dish - oily and salty. The mouth coating effect from the excess oil masked the taste of ingredients wrapping in the roll. Oyster sauce was too salty.

Not of the dishes that I would recommend at Mongkok. No complain, zichar dishes are not really their specialty, except the beef horfun and seafood beehoon.

Had Geylang lor 9 beef horfun with complete satisfaction! $6 small portion was served with generous and extremely tender beef slices. Stir fried to create strong fragrance of wok!

Only second to the Geylang Lor 9 Beef Horfun here, this pan fried carrot cake has fragrance of wok fire and embedded with piece of chinese sausage. Simply good!
