List of stalls I visited:
1) Ah Ken (Next to Fatty Cheong's Wanton Noodle stall)
2) Bao Zai
3) Fatty Cheong Roast Meat stall
4) Yong Kee Famous Fishball Noodle

Ah Ken
Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle ($3)
- Contained 2 meatballs, minced meat, slices of mushroom, pork liver and pork
- Really spicy
- Noodles clumped together but probably because I neglected it for awhile
- Noodles were slightly too dry
- Mushrooms lacked flavour and only provide additional texture to the dish
Price: 9/10
Taste: 6/10
Overall: 7/10

Yong Kee Famous Fishball Noodle
Mushroom Minced Meat Noodle ($4)
- Contained minced meat, slices of mushroom, pork liver and pork
- Noodles were much more fragrant and had a lovely mushroom fragrance; Tasted like it was infused / cooked with mushroom oil
- Noodles had a nice bite and was wetter than the previous stall
- Chili was not overpowering
- Pork was meaty and juicy
- Thick, sweet slices of mushroom provided additional depth to the dish
8.5/10

Bao Zai
Char siew Bao ($0.70)
- Meat filling was the saltish type
- Substantial amount of meat for a bite-sized bao
- Contrary to Eatbook's review, I found the layer of bao too thick for my liking and that the bao-to-meat ratio was disproportionate
- Overall, felt that the bao was only average
Price: 7.5/10
Taste: 5/10
Overall: 5.5/10

Fatty Cheong
Roasted Pork Char Siew Rice ($4)
- Sauce was thick and sweet
- Sambal chili was fragrant and not too spicy complementing the sauce and the dish really well
- Roast pork belly had a smoky taste but the crackling was not crispy
- Char siew was dependent on which part you get
For me:
1) Fatty slightly charred char siew melted in my mouth and was deeply satisfying
2) Char siew with more meat was slightly overcooked and was quite hard
3) Hit the jackpot at times with charred pieces that had a beautiful caramelisation
- Lives up to the hype and I highly highly recommend!
Price: 9/10
Taste: 9/10
Overall: 9/10

Additional notes: Ask for additional sauce and help yourself to more chili. Seriously, this chili goes hand-in-hand with the sauce and is barely spicy. If you have to choose between the roast pork and the char siew, definitely go for the char siew, roast pork was only average. (The guy behind me ordered the same thing but asked for more char siew... he clearly knew what he was doing.)
