Have been wanting to try this place but could never get enough people to go for dinner together. Really like the idea of lunch set where I can get a balance amount of veggie, meat, fruits and soup. Firecracker chicken was nicely done - crispy chicken chunks with a tinge of numb sensation. My only gripe was too many cashews (i know this is such a good problem right). Other than that, I also love the stiry fry kale with garlic.Didn’t know that adding lemon juice to help elevate the flavour of the kale. Price is rather steep for regular visits.

I love how the soup comes with peppery and tangy hints but remains drinkable. Rice noodle would be a better option for this broth. The king prawns, although weren't that big for the name, came in decent amount. One of the rare occasions where I didn't have to add extra condiments into a bowl of noodle.

Was quite saddened to see the size had shrunk significantly as compared to my first visit. Taste wise- still addictive and clean as I remember. I wont mind having more leeks for additional sweet crunch.

The chefs indeed pay attention in preparing the intestine to make sure that it's clean and not smelly. The addition of leek stuffing is genius! I love the different texture played out here— the crispy skin, the soft inner side and the crunchy leeks.

Probably the most disappointed with the bowl of ma la during our dinner here. Was expecting a sinful bowl of ma la with crazy amount of chilli, only to be served a rather mediocre bowl of ma la. There was some chilli oil and peppercorn at the bottom of the bowl, but still, it did not evoke much sensation on my tastebuds.

With similar sweet marinade (like most of their dishes) on top, the sweet scallop has a bold garlic taste. It could have been spicier to avoid being one-dimensional in taste, but I still enjoyed this!

Aside of the super thick skin, the dumplings have loads of meat inside, making it really worth it for the bucks. However, the fillings can be more well-seasoned with some garlic. Nothing really special about this, but still enjoyable.

Kinda disappointed with this item — probably because I was expecting a different kind of grilled eggplant (love the one at The Skewer Bar just a few lorong away!). The grilled eggplant could have been more charred, and I prefer having some savoury minced meat on top of it rather than the sweet marinade of chilli, garlic and spring onion.

The main reason to visit this shop was to get my hands on their skewers. With tons of options, we settled for bacon with enoki, mutton, pork, pig's intestine, squid and so on and on and on (basically, I lost track of what I ate that night lol). Well, I'm not sure whether they're lazy or not creative, but they all use the same sauce for the grilling, so all of them will have roughly similar taste. But my favourite would be the bacon with enoki!
