Cheap and good bites for that Aunty in me

Tried out their dishes for lunch and had mixed feelings about it. Though I enjoyed the noodles, I can’t say the same about their soup. ⁣

Was a tad disappointed about the Dumpling Soup. While I love that the dumpling was packed with ingredients, there was not enough soup to go around. My poor dumplings look like fish out of the pond 😭 ⁣they have amazing service recovery though, offering me a voucher for my next visit when I brought up my feedback.

overall, felt that their dishes were affordably priced given how they’re a restaurant situated in the CBD area. Worth a try if you ever find yourself anywhere near the hood!

For their signature Dry Wanton Noodle, the team had clearly put thought into the packaging, with sauces placed on the side in little containers instead of mixing them in with the noodles. I believe that was to prevent the noodles from getting soggy or unevenly mixed with the sauces. As a result, the noodles were springy, with wantons, char siew and leafy greens to complete the meal. Wasn’t expecting much of the char siew but found them to be surprisingly flavourful! ⁣

Felt there was nothing much to shout about for their mixed rojak, would have prefer if the ingredients were more finely chopped for a better bite. I like that they packed the sauce separately though, prevents the dough fritter from turning soggy ☺️

Ordered it and was bummed to see the condensation all over the box by the time it arrived 😭 gula melaka was on point, and I believed the powdered flour would have been really fine and soft if not for the condensation. Guess I gotta make a trip down to have it steaming hot on the spot!

Figured this would be yet another Ipoh style horfun, drowned in herbal tasting gravy and I was right! I think the turning point for this dish had to be the chilli. The tangy chill sauce does pack a punch and gave the dish a much needed push.

Patronised Ya Lor for their duck rice, but mostly 'cause I have a things for puns hehe. Ordered their Signature Braised Duck Rice and priced at $6.90, I thought it was pretty underwhelming. Yeah sure, it was decent, but the portion was dismal. I'm a small eater and even I felt the portion was disappointing. And the soup? Mind you, their soup bowl is smaller than those typical soup bowl used in hawkers AND even then, they only gave half a bowl of soup, which was served lukewarm. Come on, you're not in a hawker, I expected a little bit more from you.

Simple and affordable lunch set round the ‘hood. The chicken chunks were HUGEEE (don’t be fooled by the picture) and I couldn’t finish it at all, send halp

Mmm that Devil Chicken I had previously might have been the cause of my cough not getting any better but hey, no regrets. got myself the Salt and Pepper seasoning instead of the Chili Paprika one this time round, to lessen the sin (denial, I know). It was thick and succulent, just like Devil's but it might be the seasoning, which I felt didn't really bring out the full flavours of the chicken, which makes it fared a little less than Devil's Chicken. How about you guys? Which do you prefer? ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Down with a cough but insisted on having this nonetheless cause I'm rarely near this hood. Came near their closing time and I'm glad there was no queue and yet, the chicken was served piping hot, seemingly fry on order. One bite in and I knew what the hype was about. Thicc, juicy and absolutely succulent, the chicken was well seasoned and battered, with the flavours soaked deep into the meat instead of stopping at just the skin only. This is mighty sinful too, judging by the amount of grease on the paper but dang was it worth it. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Here for the second time and I must say, this is one of the better malas I’ve tasted. The spices used seemed a little different and tasted a tad different from the mala I’m accustomed to. Go try for yourself at 313 Foodcourt!

feeling broke from all the 11.11 shenanigans. So here’s a bowl of the cheapest food I can find in Foodfare. This seemingly harmless mee soto actually broke me out into a sweat with the Super potent Chili, I prolly shouldn’t have mixed them all in at the start 🥵⁣⁣⁣

Quick lunch affair round the workplace and making full use of Burpple Beyond. Here for yummy qq noodles and refillable soup which is super tasty! ⁣⁣
