The chicken is succulent and their flavoured soya sauce is still one of the best around.

Pretty damn good beef noodles

I’ve been looking all over for some good beef noodles since other places’ standards have been dropping. Glad to have come across The Beef Station and tried their Hainanese beef noodles (from $7) The beef slices are udder-ly tender and the sauce that comes with the dry version is magnificent. I’d like to add slices of chilli padi to give it a lil kick. My absolute favourite part is actually the broth that comes in a separate bowl. Every slurp just bursts with so much flavour. I’ll definitely be back to have more of my new favourite beef noodles.

This was the best dish on the menu. We love the thick gravy of the ytf and it came with tofu that was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Other items include the brinjal and other related vegetables with fish paste.

Well done, flavourful and good texture and variety.



This plate was worth every calories & the wok hei taste was amazeballs. 🤩🤪 ⁣

🍽 is at 30 Keong Siak Road S(089137) ⁣

📝 Can get quite crowded during peak hours. ⁣

The char siew was excellent and the old-school wanton was small but tasty. The noodles was cooked al dente so it had a nice bite. Overall it
was a good wanton mee but avoid coming during the peak lunchtime hours cos it will be a long wait!

This corner stall located along Syed Alwi Road is famous for 3 things, their Hakka Beef Ball Bee Hoon Soup, Hakka Yong Tau Foo and Hakka Beef Kway Teow.

Although I’ve never tried the latter, I must admit both their Yong tau foo and homemade beef balls are seriously good. Their beef balls are dense with a nice chew to it. The flavour is legit and tastes miles better from what you typically get from factory-made ones. For one, you can actually taste the beef in the ball. They’re also really massive which is a major plus too!

First of all, these are the most affordable dumplings I've seen in a long time ($6.50 for 10 XLBs/guo ties). The long queue attested to the popularity of this humble hawker stall, where the dumplings were freshly made to order, boiled and fried right in front of the customer.

The guo ties were the highlight of our dumpling feast. A generous squirt of juice hit my palate as I bit into the plump, pillowy dumpling. The meat to skin ratio was perfect (I prefer a slightly thicker skin) and the filling itself was a flavorful pork mince with crunchy bits of green onion inside. I loved how the dumpling was piping hot and crispy on the bottom; evidently a lot of skill and care had gone into making each dumpling.

The XLBs were delicious too, not as good as Din Tai Fung's but definitely with the price I cannot complain. The dumpling itself was quite tiny and not the bulging, steaming package I believe XLBs should be. And the skin was definitely a little too thick for my liking. Yet the soup was plentiful and there was a generous amount of pork filling within.

Altogether definitely worth the wait for those amazing, absolutely value-for-money guoties. It certainly beats any restaurant guo ties and I will definitely be hitting this place to satisfy those dumpling cravings in the future.

8/10

The broth was robust (almost creamy) and brimming with sweetness from the lobsters, yet layered in flavour, with strands of fried ginger adding another dimension to the proceedings. The lobster meat itself was fresh and succulent, none of that rubbery, overcooked nonsense going on here. At $110 for a 4-person portion, it’s not something you would eat everyday, but you should still sometimes. @orchidliveseafood

With the revamp of their menu, Caffe Zeppin renamed their Seafood Soup to the cheesy (figuratively) Dive Dive Must Eat (S$9.90 with rice, S$11.90 with Udon/Ramen/Bee Hoon).

A warm bowl of soup can never go wrong on a rainy day. Moreover this bowl contains a king prawn, meatballs, sliced fish and clams. It’s kind of an average bowl of soup we got there, but definitely not as economical as their Zeppin Chashu Ramen, which costs only S$8.90.

Detractors complain about the cost, queue and quantity of food given, and why bother with this when there's the far more popular and slightly cheaper Beach Road Prawn Noodles nearby. I argue that this is a far superior product, worth waiting and paying for. Curiously, I don't see anyone griping about $12 prawn aglio olio from Pastamania.

Taste: 4/5

A cheaper (and maybe better) alternative to the herbal roast duck from 店小二 at only $4.50. The meat is decently tender, and the skin is delightfully crispy. But the star is the sauce, which covers any gaminess with a pleasant sweetness and fragrant herbal notes.
