While this didn’t taste bad at all, crab didn’t come through at all, though it should have been the star of the dish. The crab was mushy (and clearly seemed like it came from a can), and the crab cake was breaded and fried, which we have not come across before, which made it seem like it was meant to cover the fact that canned crab was used. Miso hollandaise was nice however; a fresh rendition of the typical hollandaise. English Muffin was also nicely toasted, and the chewy yet crusty texture made for a nice mouthful, along with the eggs and crab.

Nothing to shout about, though we were really excited about this dish. While there was a strong curry flavour to the cauliflower, the entire dish tasted really flat. It felt as though all the individual ingredients were just thrown together without much effort and thought put into it, and they didn’t mesh well together.

A pretty complete dish overall, with all the components executed nicely such that we were craving for more when we finished. The mashed potatoes were creamy (though we found it odd that it was seasoned with white pepper instead of the usual black), the salmon was alright, but the pesto pasta went really well with the salmon and mashed potato.

Tender, juicy, succulent meat crusted with a crispy skin, paired with ultra crispy fries (which were nicely seasoned) and an extra flavourful mushroom sauce. A recipe for success, and a definite must-order next time we return.

The prawns weren’t fresh, which stood out like a sore thumb in an otherwise satisfying dish. The flavour of the garlic was infused throughout the dish, and the pasta was perfectly al dente. The squid was also perfectly tender, and the slight briny-ness from the seafood added an additional layer of complexity to the dish that we did not expect.

Hands-down the best fried chicken we’ve had in Singapore, all the way around. Firstly, incredible effort is put into preparing the chicken, as it is frenched, making it easy and convenient for diners to chomp on. It is then deep fried to perfection, with the meat cooked through, but the skin remaining extremely crisp. A delectable sauce is then applied to it, with a brilliant mix of sweetness, savouriness, and just a little bit of acidity. Trust us and order 2 plates right away; that’s what we do every single time😋

The meatballs were really special as you could tell they were home-made; they were well marinated, and had the fragrance of sesame oil. The eel pieces had a slight fishiness to it though, and were firmer than one would expect/hope? The prawns were mostly alright, although they weren’t the freshest and were still slightly mushy at the ends. Nonetheless, add some Chili padi, and this would make for a warm, comforting bowl on a cold day😊

The entire experience here was bad: We were the only customers and yet we waited for 40 minutes for our food to arrive. The pulled pork itself was flavourful, and had a good mix of sweetness and acidity to it, but the good news ends there. The fries were cold, oily, and overcooked. When the fries came, because of its color, we had thought we ordered sweet potato fries. But it was only because it had been left in the fryer for too long, and it was soaking in oil, and extremely hard. The bun was also toasted for way too long, leaving us with charred bits and a biscuit instead of a burger.

The entire experience here was bad: We were the only customers and yet we waited for 40 minutes for our food to arrive. The chicken steak came soaked in oil, and they clearly didn’t prep the chicken as there was littered all over it, which was just gross. The same fries as that served with the Pulled Pork was served. Yes those oily and ghastly ones.

The entire experience here was bad: We were the only customers and yet we waited for 40 minutes for our food to arrive. This was supposed to be one of their specialty dishes but it tasted just like your neighbourhood zichar restaurant’s mui fan, on an off day. The risotto was neither luscious nor creamy as it should be, the grains were really mushy, and there was no depth of flavour. The only saving grace was the enoki tempura as it was fairly unique, but that too got boring after a while.

Pretty impressed with the roasted delights that were offered here: the soya sauce chicken was nice and tender (such that comparisons to hawker Chan were made), the char siew had a nice char and deep, robust flavor to it and the sio bak had a less-than-perfect but still crispy skin. Another stand-out was the bean sprouts which were crunchy and refreshing and made utterly delicious with the soy sauce and crispy shallots.

Overall this dish was delightful when eaten together. Individual components were not spectacular in any way. Although the poached eggs were a little over-done and hence not runny, the buttery hollandaise sauce still brought the salty-sweet prosciutto, mushrooms and toasted brioche together. Tasting different layers, I would describe this dish figuratively as an elderly couple. When you look at them you go ‘meh’. But when you see them hold hands, you get this warm fuzzy feeling🙋🏻‍♀️
