Heard so much about this eatery with handmade noodles at an adorable price and I was pleased to find out that there is even a burpple deal. I love how they used actual tomatoes for the soup base and you can feel those small tomato bits that complemented the springy noodles. The ebiko balls too were well made and I would love to come back to try the rest of their soup base.

I don't usually eat chicken skin but because this one was so well done; imagine soft and succulent chicken pieces. The ginger paste too was very well blended and it enhanced the taste of the chicken so much that it felt that eating chicken rice at times. Definitely lived up as the signature of soup restaurant!


I finally got the chance to try a ramen where most of the ingredients comprised of shrimp; one of my favourite seafood. Needless to say, Paradise group delivered once more as the broth is creamy and rich with shrimp essence and is well complemented with big prawn paste and dumplings. I thought the prawn paste and bug prawns were a little too overcooked. The prawn dumplings were the stand out as it was firm, bouncy and chewy. Heard lots of good reviews about their dry noodles so I might just be back to try that.

It's my must order regardless of which Chinese restaurant I go to. Crystal Jade is impressive in their consistency in that there is very little variance in the standard and quality of their food regardless of outlet which is rather rare for a chain restaurant. The soup was just right in that it was not too sour or spicy. There were also shrimps and scallops which made it even more delicious!!

As always, the dory fish was cooked to perfection; soft, tender and simmered with the right level of spices. Despite the slight numbing sensation and generous amount of chilli oil, you could still taste the wonders of the chefs marination. I have been to far too many restaurants serving Sichuan cuisine, but Si wei mao cai remains one of the rare few that tops my list again and again! But do remember to request for mild spicy or 小辣!!


An unexpected find at a popular claypot rice joint; was pleasantly surprised by how soft the tofu was and how it went well with the egg gravy. The prawns were glossy and firm.

The amount of pork ribs given were very generous and the old cucumber were steamed till soft. I like how the pork ribs were so soft and tender and the soup was in general very comforting on a cold rainy night!

The aroma that filled my nose when the staff opened the lid was enough to win me over. Super hearty meal due to the generous helping of sausages, pork belly, juicy pieces of chunky chicken; all of which were cooked to perfection. The rice was crispy and you could literally taste the fragrance of the ingredients with each bite. Tip: ask for extra chilli sauce as their formula is sure addictive!!

I thought the mala noodles was the out one out given how this eatery specialises in fish soup. I ordered it out of novelty and did have much expectations for it. But I changed my mind when I tried the well marinated pork belly slices as it was so tender and soft. The noodles too went so well with the mala sauce that I was so tempted to get another bowl!

I wasnt too satisfied with the dumplings this time round as I felt that it was a little over cooked and the skin actually came off. It felt soggy as the skin was too soft and the Sichuan sauce was a little more sour than usual.

This dish was a huge surprise as I never thought cereal prawn could be crispy and soft at the same time. Super worth dish at only $16 and each prawn is large and juicy; not forgetting the crispy and soft batter.

If I have to choose one dish that is a must order at this eatery, it will be none other than the beef hor fun. I am not a big fan of hor fun but I come here again and again for this because of how the hor fun has a chared taste to it and it blends well with spicy gravy. The beef slices are the best as it is so soft and tender that I forget it's actually beef. Super affordable at 6.80 dollars too
