This place specialises in creative modern interpretations of Dim Sum . We tried the XLB, CCF , Dumplings .. everything is good . But it was cold and rainy that day and somehow the good old piping hot congee which had the sweetness of the pumpkin hit the right spot for me .

Vietnamese Pancake W Prawns , Pork , Bean Sprouts , and Mung Beans . Sounds like a weird combo but it works really well . The pancake is very thin almost like an egg crepe but crispy so even though it looks humongous it can be walloped by one easily . We also tried the beef wrapped in Betelnut leaves and the grilled marinated chicken . Everything is super tasty and delicious and reasonably priced.

Everything was good ,but they played it very very safe so no one dish really stood out n made us go wow . This aged beef was melt in your mouth and probably my favourite .

Served as an appetiser, the chili is really the star: there are two different types of chilis, and both are great.

This is Punjab food done really well n almost like home cooked food .

If you like lamb this is the perfect place for you . They have lamb spine , lamb tongue , lamb marrow , lamb dumplings etc in a nice selection of milky collagen or spicy broths for a hearty nourishing hotpot . The staff are incredibly friendly and will patiently explain the finer points on the menu esp the portioning which is really different from what I’m used to from HDL . The soup base we wanted already comes with 1kg of lamb in the soup ! So the kind lady advised us to not over order other meats . Value for money too .
Oh and do try the lamb tongue.

This dish Goong Ob Woon Sen ( Prawn Glass Noodles ) is their house specialty . The glass noodles is done well with the lard pieces , garlic and sauce . The highlight must be the gigantic prawns which owner says they handpick fresh in the market .
All 3 of us who were there could not get over how big the prawns were , GIGANTIC ! But we felt becoz the prawns were so big , the taste and texture of the prawns was also compromised - not as sweet as smaller prawns . Personally I would prefer 4-5 smaller sweeter prawns , rather than 3 jumbo prawns that lacked flavour . Still a delicious satisfying meal nonetheless

The Tofu is just so addictive with the Szechuan peppers infused into the sauce . The rice is also a slightly chewy sticky rice similar to Japanese rice . I finished all the rice which speaks a lot about how much I like the “Zhup” and the rice

Tried the Jelebu Dry Laksa Pop up currently happening at Bistro Aseana .
The dry laksa is very umami with generous portions of either lobster , tiger prawn or Sakura ebi . Yummy and not needing to drink a lot water after , means not laden with MSG . 👍 only thing is no one on the table was a fan of the Chili on the side which was too much and just didn’t complement the dish .

The dishes here are similar to Chinese cuisine due to the close proximity of Okinawa to Taiwan .
The home made beancurd has a nice texture n u can buy a few packets home too . Noodles are very bouncy n chewy , much more interesting than the usual udon .

Absolutely love that they give 3 different types of crispy fried fish here ,pity no peanuts with the baby ikan bilis . The coconut rice is very fragrant, moist and flavourful . It’s a wonderful meal for breakfast since they do open in the mornings 😊
