Loved the clam in the Kaisen Don, and the fact tt the sashimi are all in thick chunks

They also randomly serve some treats to customers to end off the meal. If you're lucky, you might be treated to kyoto grapes to end off ur meal. If you're unsure whether u're lucky, you might be served with grasshopper while being told it's ikan bilis.. This place apparently has the same owner as man man unagi, albeit in my opinion, man man is still better. The duration of grill is shorter here, rendering the unagi less crispy and its bones more telling. Still tasty tho. Sometimes they have a special of kaisen don and unagi combo bento for $19.80.

Place opens at 11.45am for lunch.

Prawn Beehoon😍 ($4) from #prawnvillage with very nice chilli. Also tried the soya bean drink in the last pic, glad they have the no sugar option. The chwee kueh is not bad too.

Was very much looking forward to have tt boneless braised duck rice again after 10 years! They recently won the 2018 michelin bib gourmand too. But unfortunately they're closed today 😒

Other pics are stalls to kiv for future visits which i saw good reviews on😁 for Carrot Cake, I'm not sure which one was the original carrot cake stall at Ghim Moh tt used to have an even longer wait time than the duck rice stall. Is it this Hock Soon Carrot Cake or the Ghim Moh Carrot Cake? πŸ€”

There's a bad taste that lingered on my tongue long after I've finished this..probably there's some really not fresh ingredient

Sauce also can be barely tasted if at all..

Loved the tender asparagus, and the ingenious lemon soaked pear strips which added a refreshing touch.

The chicken was quite chunky with a generous portion but slightly too charred in some parts.

There's also a $2 top up for ingredients option. This $4 small version wld not have been enough if you were hungry. Luckily i ate something else beforehand. Definitely choose the bigger option!😊 Saw another table of 3 sharing 4 plates of the $5 hokkien mee πŸ€”

Some say this is the best hokkien mee in sg. Perhaps because there are alot of meat and seafood in it compared to other hokkien mees. But i wld prefer hokkien mees with a higher beehoon to yellow noodle proportion so this wasnt really the best in tt aspect. But it is really up to personal preference!
Expect to wait up to half an hr for this popular hokkien mee!

Calamari is a bit too oily and i wished it to have a salty batter. La Nonna pizza is pretty tasty! Loved the juicy and tender asparagus on it.
Linguine somehow was lacking in some flavour to make it wholesome.. salt? Garlic? Parsley? But was pretty pleased that they were not stingy on the crab meat in it.
Pappardelle (Italian version of a super long rendition of mee hoon kuey) was only given a 6/10 by @shazech
