Served with a generous serving of crispy pork chop, the pork chop is well-marinated and tender. The curry gravy reminds me of laksa gravy. It kind of tastes like a mixture of laksa and curry gravy, creamy and tasty in a good way and not too spicy. The hor fun is smooth and goes really well with the curry gravy. Pretty good, I’ll definitely try this again when I’m around this area.

The Chicken Chop Yuan Yang Hor Fun combines the curry and herbal gravy to let you have the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, the herbal gravy has overpowered the taste of the curry gravy. I couldn’t really taste the curry gravy. There is also a slightly bitter taste from the herbs. As for the chicken chop, the serving was generous too but it is saltier than the pork chop. It is too salty to be eaten on its own, it’s better to eat it together with the hor fun. Overall, it’s still not bad, but I would suggest getting the separate herbal or curry gravy version instead of Yuan Yang version.

This is definitely my fav Lor Mee stall at Amoy Street. Thick flavorful gravy with generous amount of pork belly and crispy fish. Love the option to add ajitama. Normal $3, Extra fish $4, Add half ajitama $0.30.

Hands down my favorite beef noodles stall at all time. I haven’t been here for a long while, it still taste good! They used to provide chinchalok, not sure why I don’t see it anymore. It’s a pity, cos I feel the chinchalok further enhances the taste.

Not as good I have expected but it’s not bad. The broth is sweet, probably from the natural sweetness from the lala. I like the fried garlic bits which enhances the taste.

This is disappointing. Hor fun has no wok hei at all. The beef is also quite tough.

I seldom take vegetarian food, attracted by the queue, I decided to give this a shot. The ingredients were fresh. Tried the Thunder tea on its own but the taste was a little too funky for me so I decided to pour into the rice and mix together. It tastes much better when you mix everything together. It’s good, healthy and very filling.

I always preferred white carrot cakes over black ones because white ones tend to have more eggs. Unlike the typical flat pancake style, the carrot cake here is thick and chunky. Fried with a generous amount of chai poh and eggs, the sweetness from the chai poh complements the savory taste from the fish sauce. The exterior is also nicely fried to give a well-charred crisp. I also noticed that it was not too oily as there wasn't any significant amount of oil residue remaining on the plate, unlike some other places.
Note that there are two stalls here, one for takeaway, another for eating in.

The soup is really sweet and tasty. The handmade noodles are springy. Other than the distinct porky taste in the meatballs that I don’t really like, it’s a pretty good comforting bowl of noodles.

A good plate of hor fun with good amount of work hei and generous serving of tender sliced beef. Gravy is slightly salty though.

First time trying Sarawak kolo mee. I like the noodles, they are very Q and cooked to the right al dente texture. The noodles are tossed with shallot oil and fried shallots, which makes it very fragrant. However, it’s a little bit dry perhaps a little more gravy will help. The portion of wantons and char siew are quite generous for $4. Char Siew is tender, but I find the wanton fillings a little bit dry as well. As for the soup, it's quite bland.

Who says money can’t buy happiness? Money can buy good food and that’s basically the same thing.
