Throwback to last July. Wahaha classic Taiwanese breakfast I so wanted to eat. Really no frills. Random shop too.

With garlic fries. The expensive burgers are still expensive in a town as heartland as Toa Payoh. But the beef was still very good lah. The fries however were dumb. Plain fries with a few garlic cloves.

I don't usually order roast duck but something about "herbal" always attracts me. The skin and fats were shiok, but the meat was so-so. In spite of that, this plate was enjoyable for everything else, especially the different chillis.

I finally tried this popular chicken wing. It's seasoned well and definitely better than the average. But I think the best way to sum up all such stalls is: you have good ones in your region, don't travel for it. The beehoon was mediocre and the otah nothing to shout about. Luckily the self-service chilli was great.

With fries, salad and soup of the day (unpictured). Come for the variety of sauces. Nothing else really stood out. Meat was decent but could be bigger. Mushroom soup seemed very homemade, featuring fresh-looking mushrooms yet not tasty enough.

Curry chicken, pork chop, chap chye. I would say this is not strictly curry rice as we know it, but it's old-school and run by old folks. More like traditional Singaporean caifan. None of my dishes can really be described as outstanding.

Per reputation, the fishballs were great. The two balls are different - one is normal style, the other is loaded with ingredients, even tung choy. But it didn't stop there. The fishcake was good, the meatballs were good, there's a slice of abalone (?) and the generous lard was shiok. At less than $5, this is in with a shout for the best pound-for-pound meal around.

Packed and acclaimed. But I couldn't pinpoint any highlight. I guess all the elements were okay and came together to make an okay whole. I especially didn't like the tendon.

No sign of ah ma. Just a weirdo. I ordered two bowls of fish lor mee, he gave me one normal lor mee. He said only flat noodles left, then gave the next customer beehoon. Anyway, overall a competent bowl of lor mee. But don't expect battered fish fillets - instead their meat is shredded from an actual fried fish.

Alas, the previous experience might've been a one-off. The mlxg here went from surprisingly good to disastrously bad. Despite ordering 小辣, which should at least guarantee some spiciness, the whole thing tasted boiled. It's like it's seasoned with water.

This roast stall totally flips the tables. Look at its signature gravy. It's not only shiok, by doing this, the quality of the meats is no longer priority. So although both cuts were quite good, I didn't nitpick, I enjoyed the entire dish as a whole.

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