Got a mix of the spicy sauce and soy garlic, and the soy garlic is definitely the winner! My first time at Jinjja and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was! Skin was perfectly crispy and the chicken thighs were juicy and large! Good place to have a snack or meal with friends!

This place is famed for their unique dish, which consists of a fried prawn ball, two wantons, two pieces of charsiew and mee kia noodles. I really liked how all of the noodles were coated with the sauce, it was just nice and not too wet. The charsiew was done really well, nicely thick as well. The wontons were a winner for me - juicy and filled fully with prawns! I guess the half hour wait and the lunch crowd still made it worth it for me.

I like how the salted egg sauce was thick, not watery and still had the grainy texture of the egg yolk. Though a bit on the sweeter side, the sauce had some spice to it with the chilli padi infused in the sauce. Pork ribs were tender and crispy, overall a pretty good salted egg dish!

Been coming here for many years. Being able to feast like a king yet not worry about the wallet is such a good feeling, also one that is gradually becoming hard to come by. Their new location is still popular as ever. Worth a try!

The queue speaks for its own. This is not the only Chinese nasi lemak stall in the hawker centre, but this stall has its own core group of loyal customers, and each of them often walk away with multiple packs of food in tow. I am personally a fan of their fried chicken cutlet. The chicken is still juicy, not over fried, and the batter is how Chinese nasi lemak chicken should be - complements the chicken and a unique taste of its own. Do give this a try!

Run by three ladies, the cai fan dishes here really taste like home cooked food. It's cai fan that you can eat everyday without feeling sick and tired of, and it's stuff you will crave when you are feeling down or just need a good plate of food to comfort you. A must order is the lor bak - fatty, juicy, you can tell it's a good braised meat when the flavour penetrates the meat and each bite is permeated with the sauce.

I don't know if I was hungry or this was one of the nicest curry rice I've eaten so far. I always order the same dishes when 'testing' curry rice - the cabbage and the pork chop if done well passes my curry rice test. The cabbage was had a bit of peranakan flavour which I liked, and the pork chop, omg the pork chop was crispy and so tender! Needless to say, it was the best and most value for money cbd lunch I've had so far.

Oysters were fresh, egg was fluffy and the cornstarch was crispy. Chilli was the main star of the dish - tangy, spicy, complements and cuts through the oil. What more can you ask for?

Ordered a few items to try and this was the dish that really stood out. The chilli packs a punch, yet not overpowering and is in sync with the vinegar that coats the dumplings. The chilli is not only spicy, but flavourful, adding otherwise a dimension most 红油抄手s are lacking. The dumpling skin is silky and smooth, and absorbs a good amount of the chilli vinegar sauce.

The char siew is definitely the star of the dish. Tastes like the one from Mitzo, with a caramelised exterior, sweet, and tastes like burnt caramel. Each piece has enough meat and fat, making each bite juicy and full of porky flavour. The best pieces are definitely the pure fatty ones - so sinful but so good!!

Both the roast duck and siew yoke are good as well. Crunchy and crispy skin, and the meat is tender and juicy.

Kay Lee definitely lives up to its name and hype!

Don't judge a dish by its looks - it looks unassuming but it was PACKED with flavour!! It is soooo delicious. The noodles were chewy, not mushy or doughy, and each noodle was coated with the broth. They were generous with the shredded meat and vegetables (which is always a bonus). Top the dish off with some of their homemade hot chilli oil on the side and you have a delightful dish that is so tasty, and especially nice when you are craving for something salty, hearty and satisfying. Even though the flavours were strong, I did not feel very thirsty after the meal so that's another thumbs up!

The meat was flavourful and juicy! My first time eating xi an dishes and this was good! The bun was not too doughy and there was sufficient meat with every bite of the bun. Apparently this is traditionally eaten with the 凉皮 (not pictured), which was the opposite of this bun, lighter, tangy and more refreshing. Also, the sauces from the 凉皮are soaked up nicely with the bun! Worth a try!
