This place is truly a hidden gem! From reviews we thought the portion would be small but the bread turned out huge!
The bread was for one grilled to perfection, and its thickness was perfect to satisfy you and not gorge with with so much carbs you can't finish the protein.
Let's talk about the beef now - can I just say this is really way beyond my expectations??? The beef was cooked to perfect tenderness, flavoured perfectly with grilled cheese and the juicy sauce dripped slowly as i sank my teeth into the sandwich.
And that's not all - the chips were also of substantial thickness, not too salty and not like your standard potato chips from the supermarket. You can definitely taste the effort put into every psrt of this dish.
However I do wish they separate the meaty tomato sauce from the chips because they became soggy by the time we ate them (after devouring the super delish sandwich)!

Would DEFINITELY return for more. And also the prices are so affordable here!

This place was great!

The ambience was really modern with a grey/white theme, and being located in heartlands meant you won't have to suffer from claustrophobia from the crowd!

Food wise, the only complaint is the portion, which was a tad bit little than expected.
Otherwise, the fish was incrediblyyyy tender and fresh, served with a tomato/lemon based sauce, little baby potatoes and salad that were pretty well marinated!
The prawn pasta was quite flavorful as well. Would have liked to maybe have a couple more prawns in my pasta because they were pretty small

The main draw for me to come bere was of course XLB!!! The soup was piping hot I almost scalded my tongue so be careful you guys! Honestly I don't think Xlb is one of their specialties, so although it was great, Din tai fung's XLB does still fare better!!

This really really tastes like Putien style lor mee or 卤面。Having tried this dish for the first time, my parents had nothing but compliments for how tasty and creamy the soup tasted. The sweetness and freshness of the seafood was all packed in that one spoonful of soup with handmade noodles.

This was so good!! It deceptively looks like salted egg yolk but do not be fooled! The pumpkin paste was so creamy and well cooked, with a tint of chilli and 九层塔 drizzled over fresh live (and di i mention big and juicy) prawns that were deep fried - to absorb the essence and creaminess of the sauce. There were 8 pieces of prawn in this dish and it was really worth the $26.90!

Came here for Father's Day and dad's birthday meal because of good reviews by misstamchiak, and man they do not disappoint! Besides quality Chinese food, the prices are reasonable, and the service staff are so good! My mum was just asking for so many things and other service crew would usually find her difficult, but here they addressed every single one of her requests! #respect
