A more refined and elevated version of your usual Trio Eggs with Spinach Dish. While the use of Kale was an interesting touch, the thick and tough stems made it slightly hard to eat, though the leaves had a nice crunch to it. This came with a thick sauce rather than your usual soup, but it was so flavorful, and you could tell that much time and effort was put into creating such a sauce that packed a punch.

A dish we get every time we’re here. So much flavour to every single mouthful, with the fragrance of the XO sauce permeating through the entire dish, and you can taste it in every grain of rice. The addition of long beans is brilliant, providing some crunch to the dish. The shreds of crab meat add to the lusciousness of this dish. Just a brilliant and well-executed dish.

The initial excitement over this dish has since died down and now it just feels mediocre. The fried chicken pieces were terribly small, with lots of flour bits instead. While the cashews were extremely fresh and flavourful, the heat overall has since mellowed. The mango puree also tastes too commercial and artificial.

Had to follow the crowd and try one of this so we could judge for ourself what the craze was about. Our first cup in a long time, and this didn’t disappoint, though it was sweeter than we liked. The warm pearls went really well with the ice cold tea. The pears were also the best we’ve ever had, as they were nice and chewy, and had clearly been in the brown sugar mixture for a long time. If anything, we hoped for a slightly stronger flavour from the tea, especially in the form of some bitterness.

Easily the best dish of the night. While seasoned like your typical Lu Rou or Kong Bak (with sources like cinnamon, star anise and five spice), the addition of pineapple added another dimension to this beef, with both sweetness and acidity. You could also tell the beef was premium. It was luscious, rich, and melt in your mouth, with portions in between the meat that were both gelatinous and plump. The char on the outside of each chunky piece sealed the deal

While not a cheap vegetable dish at a zi-char restaurant by any means, all the ingredients tasted fresh and premium, and we would definitely recommend it. Importantly, you will be spared from the lumpy, starchy, overly sweet, overly salty sauce that you get from your typical shop, but a pleasant, smooth, refined sauce that complements the broccoli perfectly.

Fantastically fluffy scrambled eggs, complemented with a sauce that was both tangy and sweet but not overly so. Just an extremely comforting dish, perfect with rice. If anything, we were just hoping for some heat in the sauce, which we thought would really blow it out of the water.

Skin was crisp (although it did not have wafer-like crunch), and was a delightful mouthful with the extra-thin crepe and the hoisin sauce. But the star of the show had to be the duck meat itself. You have a choice of how you want it prepared, and we had it sautéed with Kai Lan, Hong Kong style. There is always a fear of breast meat when eating poultry, as it is not rare for it to come dry, tough, and tasting like death. But the meat here was so tender, so succulent and so juicy. It went perfectly with the HK-style sauce, which was not overpowering nor overly salty. Finally, the Kai Lan stalks were sweet, carried no bitterness, and were crunchy.

A chef recommendation that was both confusing and confused. We expected the dish to be savoury, tangy and spicy but all we got was pasta that was under-seasoned and had way too much acidity. In fact, the sauce tasted like it came straight out of a bottle of Tabasco Hot Sauce??? While "Maiale Oriental" made the dish sound special; it was anything but. The quality of the meat was clearly lacking; and tasted like a plate of left-over minced meat you stir fried with Tabasco when you were hung-over.

This was akin to a delicate and luxurious siewmai with premium ingredients, as the zucchini flower was filled with delectable mouthfuls of prawns, chickens and mushrooms. There was a tad too little zucchini, which we craved for because of how sweet it was. But it was a very interesting dish, and brought together nicely with a sauce that was perfectly balanced; not too sweet and not too salty, as many chinese sauces tend to be.

A mediocre, ordinary dish without enough flavour, and lacking Wok Hei aroma and fragrance. The chunks of crab meat that were given was also pretty tough. Overall, it tasted just like a slightly more elegant and cleaner rendition of your typical Yangzhou Fried Rice and which came with conpoy and egg white.

Only thing better than a great wagyu beef bowl? When you can get it at half its price. My oh my, there were so many great things about this small bowl. The rice came in small grains, and were of a perfect texture, just about al dente. The onsen egg was also cooked perfectly, the whites were set, but the yolk remained runny. The spicy mentaiko also added another dimension with its umami flavours, but yet, it did not detract from the wonder that was the beef, which had a nice char to it, and it really melted in your mouth after two bites. Our only quibble would be that there were too many fatty pieces of beef that were served. Because the quality of beef was so spectacular, even the lean portions were already extremely juicy, succulent and tender.
