Seaweed Salad 凉拌三丝 ($3)
I really like this side dish a lot and can complemented well with fried rice so much. It consisted of seaweed, mung bean sprout, carrot, spring onion and also topped with chili sauce.

Dan Dan Noodle 担担面 ($4.50)
My parent decided to order this so I need to request less chili for my father as he just cannot take it too much on spicy food. The sauce for Dan Dan Noodle was quite good and also their noodle texture was quite smooth and chewy (not that hard).

Pork Ribs Fried Rice (排骨炒饭) ($6)
Need to wait at least 30 minutes for food buzzer to be v i b r a t e and finally managed to order recommended dish (Pork Ribs Fried Rice). I really like their pork ribs to be tender and chewy and that not hard. I felt that their fried rice was not much taste except a bit of egg flavour. It's quite dry aftertaste tbh for fried rice.

四川辣子鸡 (Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken) it's extreme shiok and hot dish for mala lovers but for me, I just felt wow and busted out while trying to eat and chew the crispy chicken. We tried to dip crispy chicken with vinegar to reduce level for hot. Oh yes, I accidentally eaten Sichuan Pepper known as 花椒 and felt numb on the nerves of my face. :") Never really enjoy this mala dish at all because I'm not a fan of spicy food.

They had two different variation flavour for Jellyfish (海蜇丝) [醋酱海蛰头 (Jellyfish in Soy Sauce Vinaigrette) and 葱油莴笋拌海蜇丝 (Jellyfish with Asparagus Lettuce in Scallion Oil)] we decided to choose 醋酱海蛰头 (Jellyfish in Soy Sauce Vinaigrette) instead. So it's quite crispy and chewy for Jellyfish and suitable for salad or appetiser dish only before heading for main dish.

Got a long time never eat roast food such as char siew and also roasted meat ($5) at outside because I always taobao back home for neighbourhood coffee shop. Didn't expected that char siew got that strong charocal taste but I felt that its quite fattening for me. Probably need to request for lean meat. I also like their roasted meat not that salty and also fattening too. 😅

Another Yong Tau Foo Shop that I was eating again under the wishlist because I forgot to take photo last time that I went there. Loocated at opposite Bugis Junction and I always avoid lunch time crowds because like a lot of people queue for picking ingredients 😬. Plus the shop look quite more spacious than in the past due to Covid-19 social distancing. Yong Tau Foo ($4.90 for six ingredients + Noodle or Rice) or you don't like to eat Noodle or Rice you can pick one more ingredients. I realised that I got a bit disappointed with pork meatballs as its look dry and hard) compared in the past (probably they cooked them too early alr) 🙃

Army Base Stew ($15.90) It consisted of SPAM (Luncheon Meat), sausages, instant noodles with kimchi soup and melted cheese topping. My sister she didn't see melted cheese but just melted away on the soup lol. We felt that it's quite so-so only (nothing much special about it) and like the food was quite salty aftertaste. The pricing was quite standard. Kimchi Pork Belly Stew ($15.90) consisted of sliced Pork Belly, fermented Kimchi, tofu and vegetables include rice. Crispy Samgyeopsal with Creamy Scrambled Eggs & SoyYuja Sauce ($13.90) was quite good in terms of creamy scrambled eggs and also their pork belly (crispy skin) got sour (due to vinegar) but salty towards the end. I realised that their side dishes (banchan) got only 2 sets for 3 people. Good thing about their Kimchi Pancake ($10.90) consisted of savoury kimchi and sweet onions was quite crispy and that not spicy for me.

Fishball Noodles (Dry) was quite dry and need to add more water before mixing up again. I like their fishball to be handmade but crunchy texture.

Lor Mee look usually normal to me tbh but a lot of ingredients inside lor mee but too bad I went to eat lor mee last week already 😅

I never see $2.50 Lor Mee (cheap thrills mood) and I felt that Lor Mee got strong herbal taste but quite salty aftertaste. I did want to order $2.50 Lor Mee but I saw people order his fried fish (for takeaway to put separate on the paper) and decided on ordering fried fish instead. I felt that fried fish got a lot of batter so batter > fried fish? so I cannot be picky on Lor Mee in terms of taste and size as different places got different styles of preparing and cooking on it. that's why I never put on ratings on all foods that I tried and usually give the feedbacks or opinions about it most of time. But I realised that I went for takeaway as the gravy for lor mee went hardy (that's why I want people to separate the gravy and noodle when takeaway Lor Mee) and got a bit hard time to mix noodles with gravy well. :"(
