Quite enjoyable. I had heard a lot about this zichar.

I made my way down after seeing some rave reviews. Their version isn't soupy. Instead it's much like pig trotter beehoon. The beehoon was very powerful, powered by (lots of) lard, spring onion and leek. Although the crab clearly wasn't top grade, the whole dish was reasonable at $39.

So rich. If you think "old fire" soup is oh so satisfying, this is double that. The ginseng wasn't apparent, but I suppose it contributed to the taste. Unfortunately the chicken was quite average.

Done starchy. Very homemade to me but my companions liked it.

Aka pork knuckle. I guess the Thai element is the addictive sauce and the achar. Good: crackling skin and fats. Not so good: some dry meat. As usual, the portion of pork knuckle made up for the price.

Supposedly their signature. I found it very ordinary. The crust might have been done very well, but the beehoon was limp and bland. Special shout-out for the lard.

We ordered the winged beans wrongly lol. But at least they're not mushy like ladyfingers. The tofu was fantastic.

No complaints! It also featured the taro sticks that have been taken off menu.

Steamed fish at restaurants is always good.

Tried more food than this account shows. Not known for naggy, deep reviews. Just the truth.
