One of the best san lou hor fun around!

I love eating at Ka Soh. You’ll know that you’re gonna have a great comforting bowl of noodles, no matter which one you order. It probably has to do with the restaurant being around for almost five decades.

I had its Ka-Soh signature san lou hor fun which can be shared or consumed by an hungry individual. I was the hungry individual. One can smell the noodles before it even arrives at your table due to its distinct wok hei aroma. The starchy noodles are packed with fresh fish slices and crunchy bean sprouts. Sprinkle some slices of green chili and you’ll have an awesome comforting dish.


Doesn’t look like much but it’s one of my favourite things to eat.

J.B. San Lou Meehoon ($7/11/14) is a difficult dish to photograph. It’s as if your economic bee hoon for breakfast accidentally got flattened on your way to work but I can assure you, the taste is the complete opposite.

The meehoon is loaded with a wok hei flavour as it has absorbed the aromatic stock under short but intense heat. That results in a crispy exterior yet slightly soft interior. The flavour of the ingredients such as squid, prawns and vegetables is also enhanced due to the wok hei. Every table will have this dish because it’s that good and that addictive.

Wasn’t a fan of lala until today!

I haven’t been fond of clams. I attribute the dislike to an unfortunate encounter of a time I had some bad clams. However, one of JB Ah Meng’s most popular dishes include the famous fried garlic chili clams ($16++, strangely, service charge is only 1%). I tried it, and was blown away.

Firstly, I don’t recall seeing such large clams elsewhere in this quantity. Secondly, the spicy garlic sauce is to die for. It is dangerously addictive. It didn’t take long for me to form a mountain of empty clamshells! Not an ordinary sight coming from someone who feared clams.

I look at the number of posts, then I look at my stomach and I realise my body is a machine.
