The gravy was very watery and had no peanut taste, thou I could see ground peanut inside. Meat was lean pork. This dish was overwhelmingly sweet. A little disappointed.

Not to be confused with heh cho, this was extremely ordinary. Kinda like the ones at yong tau foo stalls.

This was very spicy. Quite bland and no garlic taste. The sambal seemed to be just ground chili paste. Not my style.

I expected black gravy in this one, but what came looked like curry. Until I read the menu description. It was tamarind gravy. Sooo delicious this chicken dish. Tangy and rich gravy covering tender chicken. We got chicken wing and some breast meat. I don’t eat breast meat but this was so soft and tender that I finished one whole pc. My goodness I loved the gravy so much I drank it like soup. An amazing dish.

Mixed vege in spicy coconut stew. Hubby’s fav. The stew had a light curry gravy that was easy on the palate. Not very spicy. So good to drench our rice with it. Vege was fresh and delicious.

This was served hot, like steaming hot. Very thick, with lots of coconut cream. I loved it. Not sweet either.

This was part of my nasi lemak Beef rendang set. Very small bowl, but quite intense. Strong lemak flavor. Not at all like the usual ones from food courts and hawker centers. Not very sweet but the taste was amazing.

I usually like lady’s fingers stir fried in sambal chili, but this was quite meh. Bland, with only the taste of pounded chili. Menu described it as “okra topped with chili”, and that was exactly what it tasted like. Little to no seasoning at all. I prefer my lady’s fingers sliced thinly but this was the super thick cut type. Not my style.

The menu described it as “a pair of scads stuffed with chili. Deep fried.” No price was indicated so I guessed it must be market rate, kinda like crabs. They quoted us $10 but bcos my brother in law told me that this was a rare find, we decided to take it. I have no idea what scads are, but this was a fairly good sized fish to me. Got lots of bones so I took forever to eat this. The fish meat was fresh, bouncy and chewy. Despite my dislike of fish, I finished 1 side of one. Got pounded chili stuffed inside the fish, which made it really delicious. Very spicy indeed. Best to eat with your hands.

This was a pretty small plate but the quality more than made up for the lack of quantity. The sotong was cooked just right, not tough at all. I loved the sweet black sauce. With the cut chili adding a tiny hint of spiciness, this sweet savory sauce provided an intense burst of flavor to the naturally bland sotong.

We were all amazed when this came. A large plate piled high with bee hoon in lots of gravy. At this price, the quality and quantity were incredible. Spicy tangy gravy was flavorful and got good amt of liao inside. Very value for money.

Their nasi lemak was called nasi kuning, a light yellow rice filled with coconut fragrance. This was a set lunch that came with dessert. The beef rendang was on the tough side so I didn’t like it very much. But the egg omelette and fishball lemak were good. Went very well with the rice. The fishball was bouncy and it was not very spicy. Ikan bilis could have been more crispy. A very home style cooking. Amazing array of dishes listed on the menu with very competitive prices. This place totally destroyed my idea that Peranakan food was expensive.
