decided on this place due to @mattanggg's recommendation. sio bak cake is taking the stage here cos its my bday cake. and its my first one this year.
-
we got ourselves the roast meats which include the famed char siew, sio bak and chicken. added on fries and potato salad as sides and a serving of prawn noodles for each couple to share.
-
the char siew did not disappoint. fatty, flavourful and just slightly charred for that smoky taste. for the sio bak, i just like the crackling skin. chicken was complimented by quite abit of garnishes and the combination was spot on. meat was soft and tender too.
-
potato salad had a smoky taste which i assumed is due to the bacon. and as a kantang lover, i can find no fault with this item. fries are the typical fill in the time slot whereby no other food is available yet. nothing special to me.
-
and the prawn noodles which uses mee pok as the base. expecting a super robust broth, i was very disappointed with the soup and so were the rest of us. other than the texture of the mee pok, i find this nothing to rave about. the sakura ebi did little to help, so the overall dish was still kinda bland for me. and the price tag did not help too. the chef did explain they were going for a fusion style rather than the sinkie super gao prawn soup we are used to.
-
roast meat were generally good and the staff were very nice and friendly by providing us with the cake and even poured us small glasses of complimentary alcohol. these, with the ambience would be a good place for drinks imo.
-
treat by mark kor and xx but i agar $30 per pax.

we ordered the signature slow cooked duck, the lobster with truffle tang hoon, seafood rice, 3 eggs veg and giant egg tart for dessert.
-
has already posted about this multiple times. so wont really go into details. the slow cooked duck has a pinkish hue and is supposedly juicier. for the less adventurous, can opt for the normal peking duck instead.
-
first time ordering the lobster with truffle tang hoon which turned out to be surprisingly nice. the truffle aroma was definitely present but not too overpowering. the truffle has already been infused into the tang hoon, so its good tang hoon.
-
the seafood rice is the main reason why im always here. the rich duck broth with the popping rice puffs never fails to amaze me. must must must order when you guys visit this place.
-
giant egg tarts suit me because its egg and yuzu. yuzu fans should definitely order this to end the meal. and also right after this dinner, i returned for lunch the next day. 😂
-
$70 per pax.

last time i had it was perhaps 4 years or so back when no star was awarded yet. we queued for around 20min and got the mee kia as the mee pok was sold out.
-
liked the al dente-ish noodles which was the main draw for me. other than the usual meat balls, liver and bak chor, the dumplings and sole fish did bring a new twist to your usual bcm. the texture of the liver was good. not powdery at all. dumplings were kinda meh though.
-
i personally love vinegar so the way they spam the vinegar suited me quite well. but i wont queue for this anytime soon unless im bringing a friend to try it for the first time. expected queuing time is already sian half. and the price is super turn off. especially the seaweed soup. 😂
-
$8 for the bcm.
$6 for the seaweed soup.

given the chance to try these gourmet sandwiches. one was the spicy chicken with a runny egg and the other one was the taro with scrambled egg.
-
first off, the bread. thick toast is used to get a more substantial bite and it was really crispy.
-
the grilled spicy chicken was especially fragrant and the meat was very tender. egg was prepared nicely to obtain the runny egg yolk effect. a classic combination which never goes out of fashion.
-
however, this next sandwich is totally something new to me. taro and egg. sweet and savoury. it tasted ok to me which is a good thing cos i was expecting it to taste weird. i can eat this but my palette will lean towards the more classic combinations. worth a try if taro is your thing.
-
personally, i would super love it if i can get the grilled chicken with the scrambled egg instead. im a scrambled egg guy.
-
treat by boss but these will be $6.80 each.

but due to the latter being closed, i took the chance to try out this stall which is famous for their cutlet.
-
i dabao-ed up and amazingly, the cutlet is still super crispy. and whats even more unbelievable is that the skin was actually very thin. its really just the crispy skin and not flour and batter which i taste in most places. the meat itself is moist and juicy. nothing to complain about.
-
sides are kinda standard. fries and coleslaw. the special sauce they drizzled onto the cutlet did not cause the cutlet to be nua but adds another flavour to the dish instead. so my verdict for now is. cutlet come to no. 1 western food. chop go back to hainan chef.
-
$5.50 for this dish.

i did not get a chance to try the one at ps so i guess this is it.
-
ordered the firecracker chicken and maple fritters, mapo tofu, wagyu truffle beef hor fun, crab omelette and egg floss butterfly prawns to share.
-
firecracker chicken is basically a hipster version of 辣子鸡 which is served with a bowl of you tiao drizzled with maple sauce. fiery and spicy, chilli fans wont want to miss out on this. mapo tofu is kinda straight forward.
-
the beef hor fun has its hor fun done in two ways. one is the usual stir fried method while the other method is to deep fry the noodles. with this combination, we get the silky hor fun with a crunch. different layers of textures made this my favourite dish of the night.
-
crab omelette and butterfly prawns were what we expected as well. liked the fluffiness of the omelette but the prawns were too oily for me.
-
$35 per pax.

wanted antoinette but they toh already so settled for wild honey instead. i got the scandinavian which is basically salmon with rosti.
-
given a choice between medium and well done for the fish, the noob me went with well done. salmon was done nicely and the meat was fork tender. the hollandaise sauce was a nice touch. not too gao that it overwhelms the dish.
-
the asparagus was crunchy and the tomatoes on vine were super juicy and refreshing. rosti was crispy and i super loved it. might try ask for more rosti on my next visit. 😂
-
$35 for this dish.

saw a queue forming up at this new korean fried chicken joint and sinkie being sinkie, we decided to join the queue. got ourselves the signature burger, both original and spicy versions of the fried chicken.
-
burger was alright. like an amped up version of zinger initially. but it got sian after two bites. the chicken pieces fared much worse. some of the chicken skin was crispy. other than that, the meat was dry, tough and bland. not worth the queue. and definitely not worth the money. just go nene chicken la.
-
$14 per pax.

heng we arrived early. the 20min queue was a small issue. if we came late and they were sold out, that would be the sad thing.
-
ordered a duck rice, add meat add egg. the serving was really value for money. due to the extra meat, ingredients were served on a separate plate. this image captured is for one serving. klthew has his own plate as well.
-
only white rice is served here which the braised sauce compliments perfectly. duck meat is tender and does not stick to your teeth. flavour of the braised sauce has seeped deeply into each and every piece of the duck and its a joy gobbling up this dish.
-
soup only has a slight herbal taste. i would say the chilli here is spicier compared to the usual sweeter ones i have elsewhere for duck rice.
-
cant believe i have been missing out on this gem since camping overnight at klthew's place since our poly days. better late than never i guess.
-
$5.60 per pax.

ordered a variety of items other than the famed satay and a serving of sake to share since the alcoholics were feeling it.
-
silky house special tofu was filled with different ingredients. every spoonful is a surprise and the popping ikura is icing on the cake.
-
garlic fried rice is one of the best dishes here. very fragrant and the rice are in individual grains. not clumpy at all. just cant get enough and its super addictive. cant stop my scooping. a very simple yet satisfying dish.
-
for the grilled items, what hit the spot for me were actually the different sauces they use for each and every satay. each unique sauce compliments that specific protein and although pricey, its definitely quality food here.
-
this place can be a rare treat to pamper yourself once in a while. ambience is fun, food is great. the yakitori sticks typically go for an average of $6 per stick.
-
$55 per pax.

tried the mango delight and mango rock melon smoothie. there's another flavour called the mango tango which taro fans can give it a try.
-
first up, the mango delight. this is liho's take on the popular mango dessert and they aced it. every element that you expect yourself to find from the dessert is present and even better. mangoes are specially sourced from chok anan in thailand. this variant of mangoes are the especially sweet honey mangoes which give the drink a sweet fragrance and not the cloying type of sweetness you typically expect in most desserts. mango chunks and sago were on point as well. this refreshing drink definitely won me over.
-
the mango rock melon smoothie uses the unique sweetness of the rock melon fruit for this creative drink. the apparent rock melon flavour will surely hit the spot with rock melon lovers. as the main star for this drink is the rock melon, liho has stayed true to this by allowing the rock melon flavour to shine while letting the subtle mango taste take up a supporting role here.
-
thank you liho and oqw for the invite. loved the mango delight. alot.
-
$6.60 for the mango delight.
$6.90 for the mango rock melon smoothie as well as the mango tango.

no decision so i just chose ps cafe randomly.
-
ordered a king prawn pasta, buttermilk fried chicken and a truffle fries to share. truffle fries is the standard order at ps cafe. cannot run one. cheese shavings were generous as usual and nothing much to hiam about it.
-
pasta was done quite nicely. not overcooked. prawns were big and succulent. the fried garlic bits were a nice touch to the dish. gave it an extra layer of crunch which i enjoyed.
-
buttermilk chicken was perhaps slightly overfried imo. not the taste i was expecting. just averagely edible. but im definitely no expert in the authenticity of buttermilk fried chicken. so i was expecting it to taste like the one at mcds. light, crispy and fragrant. the chicken here however tasted kinda heavy with the oil smell. so not gonna order this again in the future.

$28 per pax.
