Best in class. It's the fluffy kind but had the perfect chew that a crispy lover like me cannot deny. It also had such flavour for a plain prata that made me question other prata makers.

Just a big piece of thin prata. Pointless if you wanna feel like you ate something.

My experiences here had been mixed, but this was an utter joke. That's six slices of belly. If your dish is one protein with rice, at least respect your protein. Shouldn't pork belly rice use at least thick cuts? The cook even slowly grilled the thin slices in front of me, mistaking it for effort.

Alert if you like your meat dishes at caifan stalls, because for some reason, this in an industrial estate serves mainly meat. Among those, they seem to have fried versions of everything. For a gravy lover, they also have a separate pot of curry for your rice. I ordered braised pork belly, sweet and sour pork, Thai-style taukwa.

How curry rice should be. Pork chop was addictive and like biscuit, plate was drenched, and bonus was the special chilli sauce. Their eggs were beautiful, just that suay mine not runny. I also ordered chap chye and lion's head.

Too much misplaced faith. Instead of a large piece of chicken, came a too-spicy stir fry with little meat that was as hard as rock. Most of the stir fry was cauliflower. Fried rice was relatively competent, but I give this eatery a thumbs down.

Where do I start? I mean, since they specialise in ban mian, why not give it a try? The egg, though attractive, was fully cooked. Not to mention I paid to add it, which means their noodles don't come with egg. And chilli: there's no option to indicate chilli, so I wrote as a remark I wanted it spicy. What arrived was cut chilli padi. Wtf! To be fair, the rest was okay.

One of those days I buy something not knowing the mastery I've encountered. This soy sauce chicken was generous and very good, especially considering it's metres away from a Michelin-starred version. The real game changer though was the tofu. Yes, that big black ball. You've never eaten tofu this soft and smooth.

Not that it's cheap, but that it's the cheapest item on this pricey menu. This is quite a well-known and popular brand, but I find it overpriced. It's decent, it's just not top tier bcm. To an extent, the fish maw is the differentiation - which I don't eat.

Factory line. They have everything on standby, just need your noodle type. If you want a topping like mine, they just top lor. It's decent. I remembered it as better.

So bad. For a stall that fries the yakisoba upon order, it turned out as if done by a rookie. There was nothing Japanese about it. The meat, though large, was uninspired.

Voracious foodie who often doesn't snap photos of his food, making him a bad Burppler.
