This was pretty good, there's this hidden layer of flavour not sure if it's just from the pork lard, but it was quite unique. The strips of water chestnut were light and crunchy too. Rather ex tho

National Day promo until 15/8

Tbh I think it's pretty overrated. The lobster is full of meat and the meat was firm. But the broth is a chicken broth and while comforting, not very shiok or stunning. Vermicelli thus wasn't particularly noteworthy either since it soaks up the broth.

No need to try, not even if you love lobsters since the broth doesn't have lobster taste at all

It's not very funky, everything was cooked well, and the spices and heat were just mild enough to keep everything very addictive. Probably the best dish we had, both of us polished this off before we started on other dishes

Absolutely delicious.

The very best version I've had. Tomatoes were super juicy and the accompanying plum flavour was just nice too.

Even tho it's not free, I implore you to let them leave this on your table haha.

The texture is pretty decent, seeing as they use a good cut w balance between fats and meat

Rather sweet sauce, there's only a little bit of crisp tho

Overall it's not too bad, somewhat unique

Tender and bite was ok but too chewy. I feel like it's cos this isn't the right meat to use for kaochuan. Because it's already perfectly cooked, inside was pink, and is clearly a very different cut from most mutton skewers

Very, very mild. The texture was fine but it's not shiok at all. Could hardly tell it's marinated

Very weak garlic taste, the cucumber baton makes the overall taste too mild, no garlic pungency, and much too sweet sauce

It's a very family friendly version I guess, don't order if you want anything bearing a semblance to the real thing

Idk if it's me but there's a lot less impact than I remembered. Can skip

Not sure why they gave such a huge portion of broth, but while most of them were decently cooked the eggplants were almost raw.

As u can tell the pork bone broth doesn't carry heat on its own, the small spicy is made by adding chili on top. It's not as good as the pork bone mala broth

Also get more meat cos everything is same price anyway

This fared slightly better, the broth and noodles were not too bad and surprisingly not too heavy. Pork ribs could be abit more tender but at least it's not too dry

This wasn't particularly good. The broth seems bulked up without any beefy umami, and it was spicy at the back of the throat without the corresponding complexity and spices

Would travel for food
