Excited to try this newly discovered store around the hood and later realised that there’s been pretty good reviews floating around! At first look, it’s easily understandable why it costs $5 for this decadent wanton noodles - thick char siew in glistening charsiew glace with charred corners (definitely not the limpy, pathetically thin charsiew in standard wanton noodles), as well as nicely wrapped wantons that are plump in size (again, not pathetically tinyand I’d return anytime!

Simple fare, great comfort. Always a good mix of meepok and pork pieces done well (not overcooked or rubbery!)

Hms, not the cheapest foodcourt meal but rather value for money! Look at that chicken chop which is comparable in size to the pasta! Protein vs Carbs - 50:50. Great afternoon fuel for the rest of the work day 😋

Verdict: This is no quack! Tastes as satisfying as it looks. Comes w a bowl of soup (no msg) and really really spicy house made chilli!!

Kidding. Fried noodles are generally less healthy than the soupy versions. But I guess having it in a hospital setting makes it seem like the plate of mee goreng is generally healthier?

Check out the ‘healthy’ logo on the top left. Surely it did help in portraying a less-sinful vibe to the plate of charkwayteow and moreover, in a hospital too! Of course, don’t expect the lard-oil fragrance from this!

Not sure if it's due to the lunch time peak hour craze, the standard in the food seemed to be sub-par on the day of visit. Certainly did not live up to popularity and good reviews. Pork chop was hard and not well marinated. Just pieces of pretty tasteless, dry and tough meat....

Looks rather appealing - enveloped with generous coating of salted egg yolk sauce. yummmms! However, the prawns didnt taste that great. It was cooked to the right level of tenderness but certainly didnt taste fresh. It wasnt crunchy/juicy kinda tender, more of 'mushy' and dense kinda tender. Fresh prawns should feel plump and bouncy in taste!

One of the more reasonably priced fish head in town! Featured here is half a fish head - enough to feed 5 small stomachs, with some side dishes added. The curry was rich and fragrant - loved how it's so filled with spices. The vegetables have all soaked up the gravy and were excellent in taste! Fish meat was tender and succulent, definitely no fishy taste!

One of the best seafood white beehoon in town! It’s a must-have 😊 oh, the salted egg squid 🦑 were really rich and good too!! Love this place

Ouch! Felt the pinch from the 💸 not from the pincers simply because there isn’t really much of a significant pincer to speak of. The “pincer” you see in photos is a small pincer with a small pinch of meat hanging dangerously, seemingly at risk of falling into the chilli broth and disappear. There’re white shreds in the chilli sauce but to be honest, there’s not much texture to the bite and therefore, I’m half suspecting it’s egg whites rather than crab meat? Considering how “economical” this is priced, it might well be that case! The bread bowl is made of soft pillowy bread (ie not the kind with baguette-like crust that you get from The Soup Spoon), hence you should really slurp up your meal before your bowl crumbles from soaking up the weight of the liquid). My colleague found the chilli sauce a lil’ too spicy for her liking and she didn’t finish her portion. I thought it was okay! For the price and quality, I’d invest my $ for a decent bread bo
